I work for the local dunkin donuts I have been for about 3 weeks now. They do not have a lawn service so the manager and Assistant manager have been blowing off the leaves. Today my assistant manager has me go out and shovel leaves and dump them in a can for an hour in a half. My question is I don't think that's legal or in my job description am I wrong?
You are an employee at will, so you can refuse the task but also be fired as well. confirm with local employment counsel.
Just about anything the employer asks you to do is in your job description. As the prior posted noted, you are working under the at-will doctrine and have every legal right to tell them you are not going to do what they ask, just don't expect to be employed very long. Best of luck in making the decision that is right for you. Count your blessings that you are not shoveling snow.
Nothing illegal in this and your job description changes at the whim of your employer's needs.
