Hi, and thanks for your time.
I work in Iowa at a hotel under a company, which I will call K, Inc. Its on the border of Iowa/Illinois. I have 32-40 hours a week here. My boss/owner has called and started telling employees here that they will be expected to come to Illinois, to train at his other hotel. His other hotel is a different chain under a different company name entirely, I will call the 2nd company N, Inc..
I'm of the opinion that I've been hired by K, Inc and not N, Inc. I don't believe it is ethical or legal to require me to work a second job at a separate company. This allows him to bypass paying any overtime, and no wage negotiation for the 2nd job has taken place. This is not only for training, he expects to put employees on the schedule at this other property.
I would like to know the legalities of what he is trying to do to the employees here. Again thanks for your time.
