Possibly....labor law. A simple one methinks, however; right-to-work state. Done a bit of research

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?

Nope. I'm from Michigan working in Alabama for a Naval contractor of foreign origin.

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Full-time, direct hire

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

If, given initial contract signing & in connection with company handbook..... a new "mandated" software payroll / time system is employed that usurps said initial handbook and contract due new rules; isn't it necessary then to sign new contract(s)?

If you signed a contract and the contract has now been modified by implementation of a new payroll/time system, then a new contract must be signed by both parties to the contract to ratify the changes. Otherwise, the previous contract is still in effect. The employee can still hold the employer to the terms of the previous contract as the contract has not been duly modified and ratified.

Best wishes,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.
