Are employers supposed to give you 8 hours between shifts?
Okay, this kind of goes with another question I asked earlier.
I work at a grocery store in North Carolina and I've got a bit of a question that I've been unable to find the answer to.
You see, I've heard people say that employers are supposed to give you at least 8 hours between your shifts. If this is true, then my job is in a lot of trouble.
Cashiers and office staff are Regularly scheduled to close (the store closes at 11, so Cashiers are lucky to get out of the store by 11:15-11:30 and the closing office person is lucky to be out by 11:45) and then scheduled to open the store the next day (Which means you have to be at the store BEFORE 6 am and usually means you have to be up by 5 am. (That's barely 5 hours to sleep between shifts when you count driving home and whatnot.)
In the back of the store, Stockers tend to be scheduled until 11pm, kept until 1-2 am, and then required to be back to work at 6am.
Are employers allowed to do this?
