Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
I wish I could tell you otherwise, but there is nothing unlawful about your employer's requirements. They can require you to travel with another co-worker, and they can require you to use a rental. Perhaps you can smoke when you pull over for breaks. Your employer is not required to give you time to smoke, though.
I realize that the law is not in your favor here and I am truly sorry to have to deliver bad news. Nonetheless, I trust that you will appreciate an accurate explanation of the law and realize that it would be unprofessional of me and unfair to you to provide you with anything less.
I hope that you find this information helpful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
