    Default Re: Mandatory Work on Weekends

    Mandatory overtime is legal in all 50 states, regardless of whether they told you about it at hire or not. Unless you have a legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA that specifically says otherwise, you work the hours that your employer says you work. There is nothing in the law that is going to force your boss to let you off working on Saturdays; that is something that you will have to take up internally.
