Can my boss force me to work overtime?

Can I refuse working overtime and still be protected by law against losing my job?


  • The Fair Labor Standards Act doesn't really provide protection against forced overtime, just enforcing that there will be overtime pay. You should be collecting time and a half for over 40 hours a week. If your company has some sort of collective bargaining against the overtime, that would be a different matter.
