I work as a auto mechanic in a auto repair/tire store. I am paid by flat rate only for the work i do on customers cars. I get no hourly pay or salary.
The question is, can they require me to do work for no pay. I am being told to pull cars in and check them over for problems and fill out a check sheet for the car. It normally takes about 30 mins.
They also offer free alignment checks on cars and trucks that they require me to do for free.
There was a time that they made a list and told me when it was my time to clean the kitchen and restrooms for free...which i refused to do..
Is it legal for them to do this.
