Q: 

In MN, can a salaried employee be docked pay for a day the owner tells them to take off and denied vacation request pay for those days?

A:  Yes he can do it unless you have a loop hole free contract. All the law guarantees is that you are paid for hours worked. Vacation days are a perk and the schedule is just that, changable at the owner's need for people. It sounds like the company is in a cash flow problem and needs to cut costs before they go belly up. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst....

Q: 

Can a company force you to work on easter?

A:  Since you didn''t get the boss''s agreement in-writing that they''d let you off for Easter, I don''t see you have much choice. You can have your local priest call the boss. Maybe that would soften''er up. But that''s the problem with working for someone ELSE. As soon as possible, try with your priest, parents & friends to think of ways you could work for yourself, because that''s really the ONLY way to be truly independent & "call your own shots". It sucks to work for a company or a corporation; they control you too much. The best thing is to think of a service you could offer your neighbors, church or community, or sick people or old people, that could make you your own...

Q: 

Hired, worked then fired--Q

A:  It was not unlawful for them to allow you to work pending the test results as it was not unlawful to terminate you after you tested positive. You have no case. Stop doing drugs! Thanks for your answer, however, I could have done without the comment. Wait! You do illegal drugs, you come on a Legal Advice site WHINING that some company let you work two days even though you are a POT HEAD and you get an attitude because Jacksgal tells you to stop doing DRUGS? Let me make it just that simple: DO DRUGS if you want to but don''t WHINE about the consequences. Sheesh!...

Q: 

My employer has changed my hours of work but they are not suitable can they enforce them or can i do something?

A:  Join a trade union and get advice and representation if you need it. If you had any form of contract with the hours of work defined you may have a case. No trade union, no weight of argument. Most employers are not looking for lawsuits or any other kind of trouble. If you asked for a shift change and got it, your employer most likely did all he could to accommodate you. Your children are not his problem so if you can''t work the schedule given, I''m sure he can and will find someone else who can. I understand you want and need time with your family..perhaps another job better suited for you is something you should consider. Sounds like you

Q: 

Am i entitled to work all the hours on my schedule?

A:  depends on where you are...in the US there are 3 states that have a ''reporting time law'' but they won''t apply to the specifics you have in this question...... in every state what you have explained here is legal and prudent, businesses must control their labor cost to remain profitable. My friend gets sent home and gets to stay home some days depending on if it''s busy or not. Why would they have you work when they didn''t really like need you? I don''t think you have any leg to stand on. Companies who are struggling or if business is slow, they don''t want to pay staff for nothing so they send them home. Unless you have paid sick time or personal time that you...

Q: 

lieu day entitlement

A:  Depends on your contract of employment I''d imagine. I work on the buses and we work a rolling 7 day roster if I work a bank holiday then I get a day in lieu plus an enhanced hourly rate. I f I''m not rostered to work then i get a days pay and if it''s my rest day then I get a day in lieu. What''s the provision for those not rostered to work on a bank holiday? Personally, I am also working Boxing

Q: 

Force to work Sunday

A:  I did a quick google search and nothing popped up for Indiana about any "day off" law. So I suggest you put in a call to the Indiana Dept of Labor and ask if there is one. If there is, get a statute number so you can look it up and quote it to your boss. http://www.in.gov/dol/ If there isn't any law against it, you boss can assign you to work on sunday and fire you if you don't.   mindybless: mindybless: "Family time" won't work.  The need for religious accommodation MIGHT work.  It depends upon whether or not your religion...

Q: 

slander and hours worked

A:  Laymans take: You have no specific legal rights as to being accused of using said word--and if make a fuss you may protest so much as to be shown the exit--so be careful  .See if you can learn who  attributed said word to you., just in case you need to return any favors. An oral promise of 80 hrs is not a contract--the hours are what the hours are--don't make a fuss or you might get far less hours.  I have been accused of using the "f" work at work.  I have been suspended from work for one day and I have a meeting with a superisor on Monday.  I

Q: 

Can I be forced to work a Holiday? Illinois

A:  They can fire you. There is nothing in ANY law in ANY state that gives an employee any guarantee of having holidays off, and there are NO holidays that an employer is required to give you off. With very, very, very few state and industry specific exceptions, none of which exist in Illinois, the law does not recognize holidays except for government employees. If you work for a private employer, you have NO legal expectation of having holidays off; nor, except in the exceptions I mentioned (again, no exceptions in...
