  • "Show Up Pay / Reporting Pay" laws in michigan Michigan

    My best friend show up to work as usual today and after working for only one hour was told to go home. He has been working a twelve hour days all week and this go home early order from his employer was probably so they could avoided paying him some of the over time he had accrued. Every company I have ever worked for in Michigan has had the same policy “four hours minimum show up pay”. My friends company had that as written policy for years, however it was recently bought up by a larger company and they seem to be trying to push the limits with their employees. What is Michigan law concerning “show up pay” and can a new company come in and make massive policy changes without telling their employees.

    I am not where I can look it up at the moment but my memory is that Michigan is not one of the very few states that has any kind of reporting pay requirement. If everywhere you've worked has a four hour reporting pay policy, you are very lucky indeed.

    And of course a new owner can change policies.
    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.
