  • Scheduling employee during a notified unavailable time? Illinois Illinois

    My friend's employer (retail) continually schedules her outside of her availability. I told her that she shouldn't be skipping class when they do that, but am wondering if there is any legal issue to use as backup when she speaks to her boss about it.

    Afraid not. Absent a contract, the employer can schedule any non-minor children employee to work almost any hours/shifts/schedules the employer wants. Even if there was an agreement, things can change on a go forward basis (absent a contract).

      Agree, they don't have to work around her class schedule.
      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
