  • Working in multiple states. West Virginia

    Ok, I live in West Virginia and the company I work for is in West Virginia. But we also work in Ohio and Kentucky. Kentucky state law states that a 10 Min. rest period must be provided for every four hours worked. The 10 Mins. must also be in addition to a meal period. My Question is since I live in west Virginia, does Kuntucky labor law not apply to me, even though I am working in Kentucky? My boss says that I go by West Virginia Law, but I do not think this is the case. If anyone knows, please tell me, and also list a link to the info so I can show my boss.

      My boss also shorted me on 24 hours of work on my paycheck. Is there any way I can get him fired for this. I really do not like this man, but I love the job. He says he paid me all that is owed but I am still missing 24 hours of pay.

        Have you brought the pay issue to the attention of payroll, HR or someone higher in the food chain? Start there. Even if you file a claim, I can guarantee the first question asked will be to find out what you did to remedy the situation yourself.
        I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.

          I have told my direct supervisor, area manager, district manager, and HR. I will be calling the regional manager, and if its still not fixed I am not sure what to do.

            If it is still not fixed, then you sue. (or you can put in a claim with your state's DOL).
