My employers' worked holidays/holiday pay policy has always been if that the holiday fell on your normally scheduled night you work; if it fell on a non scheduled night then as long as you worked the scheduled shift prior and the scheduled shift following then you are still paid the holiday time.
This year, our store manager has decided to waiver from this corp. policy of pay and has informed us that ALL 3rd shifters are MANDATED to work Thanksgiving 10pm to 6:30am (even if not our regularly scheduled night of the week) NO EXCEPTIONS or we will forfeit that holiday pay and have a "strike" on our work record. What is more frustrating is that at time of employment there are no holidays listed that are MANDATORY to work and availability sheets are filled out that the mgmnt team signs off on.
Does our store mgr have the legal right to make this change on her own and are we/am I obligated to be there now on a night that my availability sheet states I am not able that they signed off on?
Thx for any information you might have!
