  • 2 hours no matter how long you're on?

    So, I get to work and my boss has changed the schedule wuithout telling anyone like he always does. So, I'm supposed to go home, but instead I finish out a shift for a tired employee. I was only there for 45 minutes. She told me I'm supposed to get paid for 2 hours if I work under two hours at a given time. Is she correct in this or was she simply mistaken?

    She (whoever "she" is) is mistaken. A very few states have such a law. Washington is not one of 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.

      "She" was the tired employee. That's quite the bummer as well. Oh well, thanks for the help.
