  • Manditory meetings Oregon

    If I work for a Company and they call manditory meetings every Tuesday for 1 hour; 1. do I need to attend on my day off? 2. do they have to pay me for so many hours?

  • #2
    Yes, you have to attend. Mandatory means mandatory, even if it's your day off.

    Oregon has no minimum shift or reporting pay requirement. That being the case, you only have to be paid for the time you spend there. No more, no less. (This assumes that you are a non-exempt employee - if you are exempt, you do not have to be paid anything over and above your regular salary)
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

      Yes. If it's mandatory.

      No, not in Oregon. http://www.boli.state.or.us/BOLI/TA/T_FAQ_Tamtg.shtml

            When is a manditory meeting not manditory?

            Greetings all,

            I understand that manditory meetings must be attended even on one's day off, my question is what if the employer changes the meeting dates.

            My problem is that our scheduled meetings are on the first Wednesday of every month but my employer changes it frequetly causing difficulty when personal plans have been made for dates not "normally" reserved for meetings.

            Thank you,
            Ieuan

              It's a tough break and insensitive of the manager, but it doesn't change the situation. Has anyone talked to him/her about this?

                Blast, that's what I suspected. No we haven't, not much sense in trying reason with someone who does that in the first place. Chances are it will go right over their head.

                Thank you Patty for the response.

                  I wouldn't be so sure. Maybe he/she lives for this job and thinks everyone else does too. It can't hurt to try. Politely.

                    I have thought of talking to him about it but it would really grind my gears to make a reasonable plea and be told too bad. But thank you for trying to provide a bit of hope.

                    Having been in middle management myself, even if I live for my job I consider it my job to think of my subordinates first. If I look after them they will be more likely to give me 100%.

                      This might sound like a stupid question, but are you in a nurses union, or a union of some sort? I only ask because as a hospital employee, at the hospital I work for, I only get the time paid for the meeting time only. The nurses though, had thier union fight for, and they recieved, a minimum of 4 hours for showing up on a day off, so I guess I am saying that if you have a bonified contract, that is enforceable, it could include something of that nature in it.

                        No, Public Safety Officer at a University and no union. I'm not saying there are no positives to my job but it's amazing what an employer can do to an employee in Oregon.

                        One example: I had a second job at an Air Base and my employer refused to fill two empty shifts, I ended up working 36 hours straight and there was nothing I could do about it except quit.

                          Sorry OP! I am from Oregon also, but I have to say, at least we have laws on breaks, and lunches. Some states do not, and thier workers have to work straight through with no breaks!! I guess we have to look at the good also. Good luck to you!
