  • scheduled hours Illinois

    I work for a fast food restaurant that writes a schedule for me. It seems that everytime I arrive for work have it be 4 hours or 8 hour shifts, they send me home two to three hours into the shift. They say that its slow and send me home. I plan for these hours and come to work as scheduled. How or can they send me home for such a reason. Once or twice I tried to understand, but this is on going. Do I have entitlement for scheduled hours? Do I have any recourse?

    Your recourse is to seek other employment in an industry not is not effected by "slow days". Oh and thier actions (your employer) is 100% legal

      There are a few states that have a minimum "reporting time" but I do not remember IL as being one of those states.

        Illinois isn't.
        Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
