Mandatory Overtime

I work for a private contractor on a military base and was wondering is it legal for a company to engage mandatory overtime, esp. at a moments notice? It seemed to me they could ask you to work overtime but making it mandatory would be a violation of some sort.
Thanks, Eric

notice for OT

I am not aware of any law that requires the employer to give notice that you will be asked to work overtime. It is reasonable, however, for you to appeal to the employer to ask for notice so you can plan your off-work responsibilities. An employer can require overtime as long as it imposes the requirement in a nondiscriminatory manner. Of course, you are entitled to time and a half.
