Can my employer require me to make up contract hours with a client that they failed to cover while I was out on PTO?

Question Details: I requested PTO for the birth of my son. My managers did not provide coverage for the client I was contracted too while I was out for PTO and have since made me work my regular contract hours and make up the hours missed while I was out. It has since come to an argument because they are requiring me to provide coverage to co-worker contracts rather than making them do the same thing that they made me do.
