Blue Springs, MO asked in Employment Discrimination and Employment Law for Missouri

Q: Is it illegal for my employer to deny me an opportunity to make more money when a rotation in my title to do so is set.

Ok. Long story short. Huge order every home game for NFL team. Delivery drivers take the order. I am one. 11 years same company. Many unethical and illegal situations. This is most recent. So there is no confusion ,because the tip is generally a couple hundred dollars, a rotation for delivering was established. This order is typically on Saturday night. I used to but no longer work Saturday nights voluntarily because a day driver was let go. I asked my Manager at the beginning of the season would I still get a chance being in the rotation. She said yes. We lost 2 more drivers since the season and I noticed that the rotation was now on its second turn. I mentioned it by email as not to seem too aggressive and no response. I check next week's schedule and I noticed it looks like she scheduled me to work this Saturday night but today I see that our newest driver was penciled in the night before. This cancels out my night shift and puts me out the door after the morning shift is complete.
