What are the maximum hours that a salaried employee can be required to work?

Question Details:

I'm trying to find out if there is a maximum amount of hours an employer can require a salaried employee to work without any labor Laws being broke. I'm actually concerned for my son who is a Dock Supervisor for a trucking company. He is working between 14 and 16 hours every day and its killing him and his marriage. These days you can"t be without a job and I give him credit for not just walking away. He knows he has to find something else but he can't even get the time to search for new employment. He's very good at his job and the company is really taking advantage of that.
