      Reply to Barbara: The law does not prescribe for how many days per week the employer can require the employee to work (as long as the employee gets a break of at least 36 continuous hours per week). The details are normally regulated by the contract of employment. However, if the hours exceed a certain number on any particular day, overtime may come into play.
