    Requiring employees to work without pay is illegal under federal law. There is nothing any state can do to make it legal. The employee can file a wage claim with state DOL.

        It is called the Fair Labor Standards Act (a federal law)

        The company is offering work for no pay in lieu of being fired. The termination would be legal, but having her work for even 15 minutes without pay would not be.
