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,.

I work for a small, local solar company in Connecticut.

I work for a small, local solar company in Connecticut. Things have been slow at work for the last few weeks. Today everyone in my department received an email from one of our managers telling us that from now on, if we had nothing on our schedules we would be required to clock out. They have informed us that we can use accrued pro rata vacation time, or sick (flex) days to make up the difference in our weekly paycheck until things pick back up. I have several questions in regards ***** *****:1. Can they make us use our vacation days or sick (flex) days to cover these slow days?2. Is this considered a partial lay-off?3. Can we collect unemployment for the time off?
