Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification
An employer can let any employee leave, if they are not performing their duties,
if the employee, is on salary it would be different, and the employee would have to be paid for the day,
what if they are an hourly employee?
as an hourly employee,
the employer can send an employee home early, unless they are on an employment contract, or some company poilicy that states otherwise,
If you are not a contract employee you are considered an at will employee, in which an employee has limited rights,
An employer does have the right,
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask
i have an employee that I wanted to send home because emotionally she was not to perform her duties and was disruptive with co workers and clients. I ask her to please go home and coem back for a personel meeting tomorrow and she said I can't make her go home without pay.
I do I know what my rights as an employer are? Any journals or manuals that are for employers and not employees?
