How many hours can an employer ask me to work?

There is no general limit for an employer to tell an employee how many hours to work. Now, there are exceptions. Certain industries have legal requirements that an employee cannot work beyond a certain number of hours for public safety reasons, and in those situations, the employer is limited as to the number of hours it can ask the employee to work. Outside of those industries where there are not some safety reasons, typically, there are not limits, but the employee is never obligated to work the extra hours. Employee can refuse and just simply not contain the employment relationship, or tell the employer, “I’m not willing to do this.”
