Michigan Hours of Work: What you need to know

Employers are generally free to require employees to work as many hours as are needed. However, Michigan mandates that employers pay overtime when nonexempt employees work over 40 hours per week (MI Stat. Sec. 408.384a). This is identical to the federal law.

Michigan has laws regulating the number of hours that minors may work.
A motor carrier cannot permit or require a driver of a commercial motor vehicle to drive for any period after:
• Having been on duty 60 hours in any 7 consecutive days if the employing motor carrier does not operate every day in the week; or
• Having been on duty 70 hours in any period of 8 consecutive days if the employing motor carrier does operate commercial motor vehicles every day of the week.
However, this does not apply to the following drivers if their total driving time does not exceed 40 hours in any period of 7 consecutive days (MI Stat. Sec. 480.12v):
• Any driver-salesperson.
• Drivers delivering home heating fuel from the months of October through April in a commercial motor vehicle of less than 40,000 pounds gross vehicle weight.
• Drivers involved with the pickup or delivery of crude oil products during the time when weight limitations are imposed due to seasonal climatic changes.
• Drivers of commercial motor vehicles engaged in seasonal construction-related activities within a 100-air-mile radius of the normal work reporting location.
• Drivers of commercial motor vehicles being used in the delivery of beverages to retail businesses.
Employers must keep employment records showing the total daily hours worked computed to the nearest tenth of an hour, or stricter measure.
