Hello again Charles and thank you for your reply although I don't see where you address my question about why, other than your refusal to work overtime, you think your boss might be targeting you. That is an important factor, because the law is not favorable for you. In other words, absent a contract that specifically limits the hours an employer may mandate that an employee work, the employer is always free to set and change the terms and conditions of employment, including number of hours worked, schedule, wages
, benefits, etc. The only exception, other than a contract or clear company policy that prohibits those changes, is that an employer may not target an employee for any adverse employment action simply because
that employee is a member of a protected class under employment discrimination
So, for example, if you were a minority, or otherwise fall into a protected class, and your boss only treats you in this manner and not others who are not in a protected class, then you might have a valid discrimination claim that you could file through your HR. However, if this is all about your refusal to do what your boss directed, then although it might not seem fair or reasonable, it is not illegal.
If though he is violating any sort of company policy, then you will want to continue to follow up with HR to resolve the issue.
Please let me know if you have any specific follow up questions for me. I would be glad to assist you further if I can.
