Labor law questions.please help ASAP? Topic: Business plan for facilities management

Question: I work for a facility that cares for 8 handicapped residents. When my boss puts up the schedule, I abide by the schedule and work my appointments and family plans around my work schedule. For example. I was off work last night...I work 3rd shift. I am schedule to work 11:30pm tonight to 7:30am in the morning. My boss called me and asked me if I could work from 8pm to 6am tonight. I told her that I have already made plans around my schedule. Then she calls me back in a hour and TOLD me that I HAVE to work from 4am to noon instead of 11:30pm to 7:30am. I told her that I have plans after I get off work at 7:30am. She told me that I HAVE to work that shift. What are my rights? Can anyone please tell me? It is like this ALL THE TIME!!!

Unless you have a union you're pretty well screwed. Scheduling employees to meet the needs of the business is a prerogative of management. You can start looking for a new job with a more stable schedule but until then you have to work the shift she sets.

Yeah... Most professors don't care enough to run a plagiarism detector. The ones who get caught are blatantly obvious.

First of all do you have a contract with this company and what does your company handbook say? Are you in a union? My suggestion is that you have a meeting with your bosses superior and get this straight. You will always have some obligation to QUOTE: "Be a Team Player" if someone is out. But to demand you work, I would say no unless your handbook says yes. It all depends on your situation. There could be factors of harrassement if you are a minority or if she is bulling you. Know your rights. If all else fails don't answer your phone unless ,she will have to sucker someone else. Don't let her win or you will be the one she calls all the time, she will eventually not even call anyone else and just call you automatically because she knows her threat's will work. Also the laws are different in some states as Florida. Go to Workforce.com, do your research. Let me know how it goes.

When your boss says that you HAVE to work at a certain time, what she is saying is 'be here or you're fired'. The choice is up to you. You don't have to work those hours if you don't want to, but be prepared to find another job. Chances are, you live in a 'right to work' state, which means that your boss can fire you at any time, without notice, for any reason. You have no recourse, whatsoever. You either do like you're told or go work someplace else. The labor board will tell you the same thing.

Labor laws vary from state to state, but the best thing to do would be call your local Labor Board and ask them about it. I would think that unless you agreed to have that kind of schedule, that changes at a moments notice, that it is wrong of her to do that. Check out this link http://www.allexperts.com/ I have asked a few questions and was very pleased with the answers i received. Good luck to you.

congrats you are so close to meeting your little one! i am due in a week and a half with our 3rd little girl. induction methods at home are give and take. they work for some and not for others. their are many many old wives tales, herbs, certain foods, exercises, and teas. my question for you is have you begun the process of cervical rippening yet? effacing and dilation are one of the first signs that your body is getting ready to start the labor process. most likely you can do all of the things on the list i am about to give you but if your body isn't ready, no matter how much or how many times you do it it will not work to induce. it may however get your cervix to start rippening which is HUGE!! try these at home induction methods. these are all things that i have tried. i would talk with your dr most definitly about any of these prior to trying in case he/she feels this may be unsafe for your particular pregnancy as everyone is different. 1) nipple stimulation. you can use your fingers, hands, or breast pump. stimulate one nipple for 5-10 minutes pretty hard, rest 5-10 minutes, and repeat with other nipple for 5-10 minutes. repeat all of this for about 30 mins-1 hours depending on how it makes you feel, and repeat every few hours. if you have a contractions stop stimulating while your having it and continue after. this has been known to bring on very strong contractions, close together and you should speak with your ob because in very few cases it has been said to cause fetal distress. 2) SEX SEX SEX!! seman contains prostaglandins (sp?) which is a hormone that starts your cervix to rippen and has been said to start labor, if your body is ready for it. rough sex, and doggie style is what ive been told to do personally. depends on what your into. also i have read a few different times that swollowing your husbands seman is another way to do it as the prostaglandins ingest better then through the vagina. i'm not sure how well thats supposed to work. 3) bouncying on a yoga ball, bumpy car rides, swinging and sliding at the park are all said to "jiggle that little one out" the more pressure on your cervix the faster is will rippen. let gravity do it's job! :) 4) WALK WALK WALK!! again with the gravity thing, the more your up the more your baby will press on your cervix to get things going. i jump, jog (as much as a 9 1/2 month prego can, lol) hop, gallop, skip all while going for a walk. i also push the stroller with my 2 year old in it to add extra strain. walking is great exercise for you and also helps lower your little one into your pelvis. ***(continued in next comment)
