Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Also, I can only answer the questions you specifically ask and based on the facts that you give so please be sure that you ask the questions you want to ask and provide all necessary facts. Further, if you get a message asking if you want to do additional services like a telephone call that message is automatically generated by the website and is not sent from me. I, like most of the experts in the Legal categories, do not do telephone calls due to issues with State Bar rules and other concerns.
What specific question can I assist with?
As to the question "is all this legal", that's impossible to answer since we don't have access to all of the paperwork, the job descriptions, the employer's filings, the contracts, the lawsuit, etc.
No, unfortunately, the law doesn't require that a private employer (as opposed to a government employer) give raises or vacations in South Carolina.
Many people believe that employees have more rights than they do so I found a link to the SC Department of Labor website which confirms this at http://www.llr.state.sc.us/Labor/index.asp?file=wages/faq.htm
