Maybe. I work for a company out of Washington State that used PTO
. The company itself is based in Missouri. They count how many unplanned days off we have (as in if we call in sick, that counts) and how many times we leave early (so if we're sick and leave work early, that counts). If we have 6 or more "occurrences" in a rolling 12 month period, we can be put on an employee improvement plan or could be subject to termination
. Is this legal?
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Company is based in Missouri. I work for their office in Seattle, WA.
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will
," union, full time or part time?
Customer: Full time. It was salary but they changed it so people who made over $48K are salary and people who make below are hourly. We have the same job though.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: That is all. Thank you,.
