San Antonio, TX asked in Employment Law for Texas

Q: I work in retail in Tx and currently scheduled 14 days straight before my next day off. Is that allowed? I’m full time

My current work schedule is from my last day off on May 25th and my next day off will be June 8th. That’s 14 straight days without a day off. I work full time hours even though it says I’m part time. Would I get in trouble if I called in to take a day off for rest?

A: Assuming you're 18 or older, there are no laws that limit the number of days or hours you can be scheduled to work. If you are concerned about your current schedule, you should approach your manager or HR department and ask to have one of these days removed from your schedule.
