Is it necessary to keep the Sabbath today your employer requires you work on Sabbath and you need the job?
The commandment to observe the Sabbath is a Hebrew or Jewish law. The Sabbath was the seventh day of the week when God rested. That day of rest is Saturday. The day of worship for Christians is Sunday, because this is the day the Lord rose from the dead. If you are speaking of Sunday as the Sabbath, there is no prohibition in the scriptures of working on Sunday. If you are Jewish, yes, there is a prohibition.

What are the differences between suday and sabbath?
Are executions carried out on the sabbath?
The question is not specific as to who is executing (i.e. is this a question about Jewish Law, American Law, Chinese Law, etc.) as a result, it is hard to give a substantive answer. In America, executions typically do not take place on Saturdays or Sundays in order to avoid paying overtime for the executors. In Jewish Law, any form of execution requires an act of work (tying nooses, administering chemicals, etc.), making it a violation of the Sabbath. Additionally, executing someone is in violation of the spirit of the Sabbath which is intended to be restful and peaceful as opposed to violent. China does not care about the Judeo-Christian Sabbath.
