Is it legal for employer to have employees working more than 6 consecutive days in a row? Manufacturing plant that wants to run 24/7...I thought that MA has a law that states that one day in a 7 day workweek needs to be a " day of rest". Would that apply to a manufacturing plant and does it matter if this is mandated rather than employees "volunteering" to do . We are paid every two weeks if that makes any difference. Also- this is not about overtime pay...just whether it's legal to do so.
