My husband was hired by a national bank. The employer was hiring part time employees specifically for 25 hours per week working Monday through Saturdays. In his interview the manager explained that he did understand the job was only for 25 hours was that ok? He agreed because that is how it was stated in the posting. It was for a permanent part time position. They also explained he would have unpaid holidays, seven I believe annually and his insurance and other benefits would kick in at 90 days. He was hired. Since he was hired and several others were hired for the same purpose they have all been working 40 hours per week consistently and this has been for approximately 5 months already. When he asked about his benefits, why after 3 months he had not received any notification he was told it was a private telephone number that his supervisor would have to give him to call to find out why he had not received his benefits information package. They have been evasive and when I looked on their website I found that they do not provide part time employees benefits until 6 months after hiring. They continue to hire people part time and are working them all full time.
This is very wrong. Contact your state's Workforce Commission
and ask them about the PayDay law, and how you can address the benefit fraud.
Avvo doesn't pay us for these responses, and I'm not your lawyer just because I answer this question or respond to any follow-up comments. If you want to hire me, please contact me. Otherwise, please don't expect a further response. We need an actual written agreement to form an attorney-client relationship. I'm only licensed in CA and you shouldn't rely on this answer, since each state has different laws, each situation is fact specific, and it's impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the facts and documents at issue.
