Florida hourly work laws? Is there a minimum amount of time between shifts worked?
I recently started a part time retail job. I am scheduled to work Saturday night 5pm-11:30 pm (or later) and then work the following day at 5am (Sunday). Is this legal? There are less than 6 hours between the shifts, leaving me no time for sleep. I haven't been able to find anything about this topic under the Florida employment laws. Please HELP!

Totally legal. State avoids getting between you and your employer as far as hours go. Negotiate, work or leave. Everything is right here http://www.leg.state.fl.us/Statutes/index.cfm?App_mode=Display_Statute&Search_String=&URL=Ch0448/PART01.HTM

Jane, Florida is a right to work state it offers very little protection for the worker, it is geared to the employers benefit, not the employees. That is one reason there are so many immigrants living, and working here.
