I am a Non-exempt employee and my CA employer wants to rent a house and require me and my co-workers to stay at this home for several days, paying me only for the hours of the various business meetings throughout the day, beginning with a breakfast meeting and ending with a dinner meeting.

If you are required to literally stay in the rented location and are not free to leave, then you should be entitled to compensation. On the other hand, if the employer is providing you with a place to stay and you are free to come and go in your off time, you are not entitled to compensation.

I have filed an incident report with my boss already but it’s continuing and the workplace is becoming toxic with no one doing anything about it. What can I do about this legally? I want it to stop, is there anyway to escalate it farther than who’s in the store?

Your post, however, does not disclose any illegal...Read more »

No. You worked for the wage paid, and it does not matter what the employer is telling other what you were being paid. It might get the CEO in trouble with governmental agencies or the investing public, but you have no right to sue for those things.
A CEO of a BVI company made many false promises to me including wages, time of agreed contract, and workload. I did far more work than job description and agreement and was paid less than agreement. I also pitched their project which I created the entire pitch, to earn them additional income.... Read more »
