    My boss actually called my daycare to see if my daughter was sick. Can she do that? She went in another room and called them and then came back and told me I could leave

    psharp, you question is totally different than that of the OP of this thread. It's considered proper forum etiquette to not hijack other posters' threads. Please start your own.
    I don't respond to Private Messages unless the moderator specifically refers you to me for that purpose. Thank you.

      I moved it into its own thread.
      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.

        I know of no law stating that your employer can't call to verify. However; personally, I would be PISSED that my daycare was giving out information about my kids to people other than their parents!
        Not everything in America is actionable in a court of law. Please remember that attorneys are in business for profit, and they get paid regardless of whether or not you win or lose.

        I offer my knowledge and experience at no charge, I admit that I am NOT infallible, I am wrong sometimes, hopefully another responder will correct me if that is the case with the answer above, regardless, it is your responsibility to verify any and all information provided.

          Agree, I don't know of any law that would not allow your employer to do this.

            There might actually be a law directed at the child care provider, but I am unfamiliar with any laws that would be directed at the employer in such situations. It would legally be an odd type of law to have. The sorts of laws that restrict employer contacts generally do a lot more then that (such as FMLA). The restricted employer contact tends to be a subset of a much bigger law. Which as far as I know does not exists as far as child care is concerned, at least not as far as the employer is concerned.
