  • Automatic Lunch Deduction - Virginia

    My company automatically takes a half hour of pay out of your paycheck each day and our boss tells us to fill out what's called a "no lunch slip" if we haven't taken our lunch.The other day I went to fill one out and never asked before but when I went to turn it in he tried screwing me telling me "you're suppose to take
    your lunch" expecting me to back down and let them take the 30 minutes from my check.If I'm not mistaken he has to let me sign that slip because they're not allowed to automatically deduct 30 minutes from my pay in the first place for that if I don't take it right?

    another thing,can an employer fire you for sending an application in to another company in the same type of business or associating with another company of the same type of business while you're off their clock?

    If you are a non-exempt employee, then you must be paid for all hours worked. If the company requires you to take a lunch, then you can be terminated for not doing so.

    If the company learns that you are job hunting, you can be terminated for that as well.
    I am not able to respond to private messages. Thanks!
