California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Thank you for fast reply.
I'm inclined to believe most of what you state is true with exception of one paragragh concerning minimum wage.
You said minimum wage at 8 dollars an hour. I believe this is only true if the dealership provides your tools to perform your work. I provide my own tools so the minmum wage is actually 16 dollars per hour. (but I could be wrong)
So basically, the dealer can blackball an employee and have him do all the free services and then pay only minimum wage.
Then if the employee quits-he has no grounds to collect unemployemt.
BTW: with my experience and certifications I will never have a problem finding another job, and I thank you for the sentiment
