  • Mandatory charity walk New York

    Can someone help me with this
    My company, based in NY is stating that they are considering making a charity walk mandatory. This takes place on a Sunday. I am hourly paid. Can they do this? And if so, shouldn't I recieve pay?
    Thanks,
    Nikki

    Two different issues. Yes, it can be made mandatory. Yes, as a nonexempt employee, you then must be paid for the time.

      Thank you

      Thanks that was quite helpful. So it would meet 3 out of 4 of the issures. Can you explain the law about "Involuntary attendance". I went to the link you offered but I don't really understand that one.

      Thank you again

        What that second reg is saying is that, even though the employer may say verbally that attendance is not required, they also say (or imply) that by refusing, you will suffer some type of adverse employment action.

        For example, if they said that attendance at company-sponsored events was not mandatory, yet they also state that your evaluation will be partially based on your participation in such events. That is not "voluntary".

        And just to be clear, in the first reg listed, all four of those conditions must be true to make the time noncompensatory. If just ONE is false, then the time must be paid.
