Legal Question

Asked on: 9/03/13, 8:15 am

Is it illegal for an employer to expect an over the top work performance if they are paying you less than what your position requires (even if it is only 25 cents)? Can they put you on a job you were not certified for (example: working on an AC if you do not have an HVAC certification)? Is it also illegal for them to give you a 90 day probation period during which time you are not allowed to take anytime off (not allowed to use your paid time off even if you ask well in advance or sick days) or come in late not even if the reason you are late is out of your control and you informed your place of work before your shift was to start? When you do need to take a day off, they dont apply your paid time off to it so your paycheck is short even though you have the time ... is that illegal too? If all or some of the questions i have asked are illegal how do you go about handling the situation?
