Can my boss contact me on my days off?

I am off on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. My boss is always texting me work questions on Monday and some Saturdays Is this legal?
Also, he gave out my personal cell phone number, without my permission, and a client called me after hours at 8 PM at night. Is this legal? Thank you in advance for any help.

Assuming you are not exempt from overtime, your employer must pay you for all time worked, including texts on your days off. He must also reimburse you if he requires you to use your own cell phone. You can file a wage claim with the Labor Commissioner or seek an attorney. It may also be wise to wait until you are no longer working there, but you can only claim wages going back 3 years and potentially 4 years (but you should consult an attorney). Good luck.
