I am a union laborer. My foreman and superintendent sent me

Customer Question

I am a union laborer. My foreman and superintendent sent me home early after 5.25 of an 8 hour day because my foreman said I was being disrespectful. I told him I wanted to work my full 8 hours and earn a full days pay but I was told to go home early anyway. I am working tomorrow at the same company for a different superintendent.
Am I allowed a full days pay for today?

You need to be paid the agreed wage. You are not pure hourly then you need to get paid the balance of hours even if not used.To prepare a You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way.You have a few options. Let me outline them. You can pursue a complaint in civil court. You may sue for losses suffered plus costs and interest. You can also file a complaint with the attorney general office. You can threaten these options before pursuing and use for leverage. local counsel can also get involved! A lawyer letter alone can often bring about a settlement as the other side realizes that you are serious and gets concerned about its risk and legal fees.If I can clarify or explain anything further, just ask me. kindly rate me 5 stars.
