You should contact a Kentucky employment attorney to discuss your situation in further detail, because whether off-the-clock work is compensable is a very fact-specific analysis. In addition, federal law generally requires breaks of 20 minutes or less to be paid. If you are required to clock in and... Read more »
As a nurse in KY, I have accepted a new job.my current employer is threatening to "hold" me in my current job for 90 days to prevent me from leaving/accepting the new job. Is this legal?

For example, if you signed a contract stating you'd remain in the role for a certain amount of time and then leave before that time is up, your employer may... Read more »

Suppose I have an employment contract that says I have to give 30 days notice before resigning. Could my employer really force me to work against my will for 30 days? Could I be sued for not fulfilling the 30 day notice requirement?
answered on Sep 16, 2022
Theoretically, yes, although that is generally not how it happens. Once you give notice, they will generally ask you to leave shortly after that. The notice period rarely ever comes into play.

You may have an equal protection claim against the employer. More facts are needed to flesh this out correctly, but it is worth investigating.

You can but it’s probably a loser. Kentucky is an employment at will state which means you can be terminated for any reason or no reason at all. If it was a commercial test rather than a home test, it would have made your case much stronger.
