My friend was not scheduled to work this weekend, and was informed on Friday that he would have to come in to work the weekend because they sent the team that was previously scheduled to work out of state. I thought I remembered seeing that they were required to give at least a 24 hour notice... View More
In Minnesota, there is no specific state law that mandates a minimum notice period for scheduling changes, such as requiring an employee to work on a weekend with less than a day's notice. However, certain industries and collective bargaining agreements may have specific provisions regarding...View More

My past employer gave me a new phone every year and I signed a contract stating I would give it back each year. Every year that I have worked there they let us keep our devices after we got new ones. They let me keep my iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 in the past. I left the company 5 months ago and they... View More
You signed a contract stating you would give it back each year. It is perfectly legal for your past employer to request you give back your company phone even though they didn’t ask for it back in the past. They were being nice before because you were an employee, now you are not.
Employers often have rules regarding work that fall between legal, unfair and illegal. The kind of rule you are describing is one of those. If you were fired because you took a legally protected absence (illness, physical disability, crime victim or religious) and failed to provide a replacement...View More

Company policy at my remote company does not allow working outside the lower 48. I repeated this policy to my direct report. I also told them no one really checks where we work from, which I heard directly from my manager and the president of the company. I also had direct knowledge of other team... View More

And because they are raising the top out at end of year no one... View More

I am not looking for an answer here, but want to know where to go for an absolute “yes” or “no.” Is there a service, agency or person that can provide the answer? Does an... View More
I believe you are entitled to a copy of the background check, but they are not obligated to identify what specific information was used in denying your employment. I do not handle these types of cases, but some law firms do. Contact employment law firms directly.
In Minnesota, employers are generally required to follow state and federal laws when it comes to pay and deductions. These laws ensure that workers are treated fairly and that employers can't just grab money out of your pocket without a good reason.
I have a very small base salary, and 3/4+ of my pay is generated via commission. When I started I was told I don't get PTO. I just have to generate enough sales to cover my time off if I want a good paycheck. Then at some point they implemented 40hrs of PTO. We are required to work EVERY... View More
Difficult situation. Usually if you work even an hour a day, the employer cannot deduct, but many wage laws allow a deduction from a salaried worker's pay if they miss an entire day. It does not seem right if you are also working 40+ hours a week. That is full time. This case arises under...View More
I was helping a elderly couple who came to MN since 6/2022 from Laos do their first time State ID. It took me about half an hour to get it done. The next day I was called into the office by my manager to ask why I took half an hour to do a simple transaction that can take 15min. I explain to my... View More
This is not a criminal law issue. I'm not sure that suing your manager would be particularly beneficial unless your manager has deep pockets. I suggest that you report the manager to his higher ups and allow them to address the issue internally.
