  • fired out of state Florida

    i was sent out of state to do piece work. the piece work ended up being less then my hourly rate, i called the office and told them (after a week of working) that i was not going to work for my hourly rate. i was then fired and told to leave the hotel and provide my own transportation back to florida.
    is that legal?

    Was your termination legal? Yes. Was it illegal for them to not provide you with transportation home? Yes, and considering you quit, it's probably pretty common. You agreed to work for pay based on piece work; if that didn't equate to your previous hourly rate, that was a risk you took.

      thanks for the response. as far as the piece work is concerned. in our emp. handbook it states that you will get piecework, unless your hourly rate is higher. and i didnt quit, i told them i wasnt going to work on that particular job anymore unless they fixed the pay.
      thats neither here nor there though. i was mainly interested in recouping the cost of my plane ticket. thanks again for your input.

        Whether or not the employee handbook constitutes a legally binding contractual obligation is iffy at best.

        I will tell you that I once managed the payroll operation for an international oil drilling services company. If an employee quit in the middle of his rotation, he was responsible for getting himself home. And that could have been from Indonesia, Australia, Kuwait, etc.
