Hi I just have a general question. My daughter works at a gas station. Example: if she worked tonight from 8:00 pm to 3:00 am. Can her boss make her come in again at 10:00 am til 6:30 pm. I mean that means that they expect her to go back just 7 hrs. After she just left.
Mind you, she still has to pick up her son from baby sitter and by the time. He gets home and gets to bed it’s about 4:00 am that would mean she only has 6 hrs. To sleep, wake up to get in shower and get ready to leave again for work. I mean she barely got like 4-5 hrs of sleep. So my question is, is that legal for them to make u work a morning shift when u just did the night shift?
Does California have a minimum scheduled hours per shift law?
I’m not aware of any such law. There is something called reporting pay, where if you are sent home before completing a scheduled shift, you must be paid for half of the shift hours, but no less than 2 hours or more than 4 hours pay.
