Q: 

Is there a limit to mandatory overtime? California

A:  CA law gives an employee the right to refuse overtime without penalty IF they have already worked 72 hours or more within that work week. Note that it is not illegal for the employer to request the overtime. It is only illegal, assuming that the 72 hours have been worked, for the employer to discipline or terminate the employee for refusing. So, as a practical matter, the limit in California is 32 hours of mandatory overtime per week. I would agree with Scott''s statement as presented. However, the key word is "mandatory". An employee who is willing to do so can be asked to work as much overtime as s/he is willing to do. It just can''t be mandatory after 72 hours. BTW, for other readers, CA and ME are the ONLY states that put any kind of limit on overtime...
