I am writing this on behalf of my girlfriend. She is employed at a franchisee of McDonalds and has been employed there for the last 12 years as a full-time employee (38-40 hours per week). Due to the Obama-care mandate, all of the employees have had their hours cut to under thirty hours to avoid the insurance penalties. Most of the employees are “illegal”, but my girlfriend is a legal resident.
I’m sure the employer is counting on the fact that these employees won’t make a fuss due to their status, but my girlfriend is mad as hell and wants to fight.
She also has knowledge of many labor code and corporate violations that occur on a regular basis, which is a separate issue, but may add impact to the employers lack of employees rights and well being.
Can you help?
