California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Well, we are all at will employees, but we were asked to sign a contract...which I never signed. I am a salaried employee. No union.
Yep. My contract states that my employment is at will. Just confirmed.
So, since I've been released to work with light duty requirements, is my employer required to provide me with full time modified work? Or can they limit the time that I'm allowed to work (i.e., 2 hrs per day)? I guess what you're also saying is regardless, even if they only want me to work 2 hours per day, they still have to pay me?
Ok. Thanks. XXXXX need to take legal action, is this something I can do with you, or do I look elsewhere?
Any chance you can give me the California code number regarding this? I've told my employer all you've said to me and they're still saying they'll only pay me for 2 hrs a day and the rest PTO. I can't open the article you mentioned in your first response because I'm not a member of that site. Thanks so much for your help.
