  • Minimum hours employer can work you Oregon

    I work at the local country club, where daylight savings time, along with shorter winter hours, has caused my shifts to get cut from 5 to 3 hours (since we have to close earlier). I was told by a staff member in a different department that it is Oregon law that if an employer schedules you for less than 4 hours, that they are required to pay you for 4 hours. I am trying to get them to change the schedule so I can just work more hours, but I think I may have more leverage if it is the case that they would have to pay me for 4hours anyways. Please let me know. Thank you.

    Your co-worker is wrong. Oregon has no such law.

    There are a very few states that have that or a similar law, but Oregon is not among them.
    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.
