    Minimum hours per scheduled shift? Pennsylvania

    My wife has a part-time job which gives her 7-12 hours per week (although she has been hard pressed to get even 7 lately).

    She just received her schedule for this week and she was only scheduled one day - and only for half an hour on that day. I realize that there isn't anything legal saying that her employer has to give her hours, is there anything regarding minimum hours that would address her being scheduled for only a half an hour?

    Agreed, no sure thing if you file for UI. HOWEVER, not filing is a sure thing (that you will not get it). Filing UI is one of those no cost things, as long as you tell the truth. It works, or it does not.

    Past that, the only real cure to a bad employer is to find a good employer. Not easy in this economy, but again, if you do not look, you will NOT find one. If you do look, you MIGHT find one.

    Hopefully she has enough income in the base period to qualify for UI.

    The employee in question should file for UI and start looking for another job. Do not quit the current job (until the next job is landed), but if the employee is working that few hours, then there is plenty of time to look.

    Speaking as a former business owner...I can attest to the need for bridge shifts such as this.

    It is however my hope that it isn't the employers way of pushing her out.

    And no state to my knowledge has a minimum shift, where you cannot be scheduled for less than x hours.

    If you're looking for a minimum number of hours for which she must be paid, no, PA has no such reporting time requirement.
