Is there a limit on the number of hours I can be scheduled to work in a week?

There are hour restrictions for minors. Visit our Youth Employment Standards Act webpage to view hour restrictions and other information related to Youth Employment and the Youth Employment Standards Act (YESA).

If you are 18 years of age or older, the employer has the right to schedule however they feel they need you. There is no minimum or maximum number of hours. The employer may ask you to come in when needed, or send you home when work is slow and you are not needed.
