I have a VERY close person in my life and I trust her implicitly. I ran this scenario by her as she is the 2nd in command in HR at her company. We work in an at will state, and she stated her experiences tell her unemployment would be granted 99% of the time, this is of course using the exact scenario provided below.

If a person signed on to a job knowing that the job involved up to 80 hours a week and the company did not offer compensatory time, you'd call that person insane, wouldn't you?

Well, no insane person is going to complain about it if they're crazy enough to sign on to it to begin with.

I guess what I'm saying is that your scenario is deeply flawed, so deeply that it's unusable as a hypothetical situation.
