My employer in California has an Alternative Work Week Schedule. Our normal schedule is 6am until 3:30pm with a 30min lunch, totaling 9 hours of actual work.
Recently the company has now been scheduling us anywhere from 4am until 11pm without anymore than a few hours notice the day before. Is there anything that can be done? On top of it all if they end up scheduling us for 1:30pm until 11pm for example, and they end up only needing us until 7pm, they send us home and make us take either vacation time or unpaid time for the rest of the hours. Is any of this legal and can anything be done?
