There is nothing that prohibits an employer from having an employee work for more than 16 hours in a 24-hour day as long as the employee is paid for all hours worked, including for all overtime hours worked.  Please contact me (213-381-6557 or ari@leichterlawfirm.com) if you would like to discuss the matter further.

Sincerely,
