What If I Show Up to Work, But Get Sent Home?
You show up to your shift, on time, expecting to work a certain number of hours. Your employer tells you there’s been a scheduling error, and sends you back home. It may not even be the first time this has happened to you. Is this fair?
Not unless your employer is paying you reporting time pay, according to California law. If you show up to your shift, but your employer sends you back home before working half the scheduled day’s work, you are entitled to reporting time pay. This can amount to no less than two hours and no more than four hours at your regular rate of pay, depending on your circumstances.
If you think your employer is withholding reporting time pay, contact CounselOne today to schedule a free consultation.
If it’s happening to you, it’s likely happening to other employees at your company as well. If this is the case, we may have a basis for a class action lawsuit. Class action litigation is a complicated process that calls for experience and depth of knowledge in this practice area.
CounselOne provides representation you can count on. We handle all cases on a contingency basis, meaning we don’t get paid until we recover compensation for you. Contact us today for a free consultation.Click Here to See CounselOne's Current Investigations
