  • Mandatory Sundays?? Michigan

    Is is legal to schedule a mandatory meeting or mandatory work day on sunday in Michigan?

  • #2
    Yes, it is. Or any other day.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      Hmm... that's funny because I worked in a factory and they told us that you can't make a Sunday mandatory for anything and if they tried it would be a violation of peoples religion.

        The question as you asked it in your first post - the answer is still yes, it's legal.

        However, an employee cannot be discriminated against because of his/her religion - that's a different story.

          In ANY state, what do you think hospitals do? Hotels? Airlines? Restaurants? Taxis? Convenience stores? Radio and TV stations? Police, fire and other emergency systems?

          That's just a partial list of industries that don't shut down on Sundays. SOMEONE has to be working. So why would there be a law making Sunday work illegal?
          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.

            Used to be, is the operative phrase.

            My state was the last of the fifty to eliminate blue laws, and they did it about 15 years ago.

              Of course not. But the point is, the poster's question, as worded, is legal. Mandatory Sunday work or mandatory Sunday meetings ARE legal, regardless of what his former employer told him.

                Christianity is not the only religion and not all Christians observe Sunday as the Sabbath. Not all Christian demoninations require no work be performed on the Sabbath.
