This will depend on your correct classification as an exempt or non-exempt employee. The business also must be covered as an employer under the FLSA which in some cases only require them to gross $500,000 in revenue per calendar year.

Yes. As long as you are properly compensated for your time spent doing this work, your employer can require its employees to work additional hours to execute the move.
Please tell me how to proceed? Especially if they do not wish to say anything via email.

More information is needed to answer your question. You should contact an Arizona employment attorney to discuss your situation in greater detail, because disability-related issues are highly fact dependent.

You should call and attorney and request a case evaluation. Whether a 1099 independent contractor is misclassified is a fact specific analysis based on a number of factors.
If so, for a someone who doesn't speak English or doesn't speak really well, would working on learning the language demonstrate good faith? Perhaps as a means to finding more work opportunity, for example.

There are no federal laws that require employers to offer any form of paid time off, so if your employer does offer this benefit, it can offer it on its own terms. This means that if you are out of work for any reason, your employer can require you to used any paid time off you've accrued... Read more »

Hello, I or any other contracts attorney would be happy to help you out with this, but providing language for a contractual agreement is a service that you'd need to pay for. It's highly unlikely any attorney on here would be willing to offer their services for free to provide you such verbiage.
