My boss didn't schedule me, so I went out of town. He apparently needed me in, but instead of calling me earlier in the day, he waited until 30 minutes after he wanted me to come in to blow up my phone. I didn't have it on me at the time. He then proceeded to call my emergency contact over 6 times for a blatant non-emergency. Is that legal? Because I feel like it crosses a big boundary.
There is absolutely NO law that prevents your employer from trying to reach you through your emergency contact, for ANY reason whatsoever.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
