Dear New York Employee:
Do you question whether there is a law that deals with your particular problem? That is hard to tell since you did not say anything about the nature of your employment or the "case" that apparently is in the way of you staying with your schedule.
The answer provided to you is in the nature of general information. The general proposition being that you should try to avoid a bad outcome if you can.
What sort of "case?" This could be the employer's right or it could be retaliation. Please consult an employment lawyer to discuss your options.
Lots more information is needed including what type of case you have. If you have a criminal case employers often suspend employees while the case is pending.
I am a former federal and State prosecutor and have been handling criminal defense and personal injury cases for over 18 years. The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails, is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.
If you have a lawyer or union rep handling your case, ask him or her. If you do not, it would be a very good idea to schedule a consult with an employment lawyer. It may be illegal retaliation.
