I have worked in home care for five years. the past couple of years has been a battle. We work one weekend a month and now are being told if we have a full weekend 16+ hours or 12+ productivity we can still only take one day during the week of to make up for the weekend. I have been working 40+ hours and seeing over productivity that they require. Anyone know laws about telling your agency when you meet your hours and productivity you can call it quits? Lately I have been working 50+ hours and getting burned out!

You need to make a visit to your local Labor Board to ask about this. Likely, the specifics are not covered on the FAQ on their website. If you go in person, you can discuss this with a rep to find out what the Labor Board's take on the matter would be if you were to file a complaint.
