Yes it's legal. If this poses a problem the employee should get a job with more structured hours.

Answer #2 | 22/12 2013 04:38

Zero. A 24/7 schedule is legal. Connecticut does not have a limit on the number of hours an employee can be required to work. That's the same in just about every state as long as the employer gives 30 minute breaks every 8 hours and pays overtime.

There is no minimum.

Answer #4 | 22/12 2013 09:54

No law requires a minimum time between shifts.

It's legal, however, if the employee has an accident due to sleep deprivation that could cause problems for the employer.
