What can be done about deliberately cut hours to change full time status & benefits?

Generally speaking, without knowing more about the background behind the employer's decision to cut shifts, that in and of itself is not illegal. However, the failure to provide lunch breaks or pay you for the hours/shifts you worked is a wage and hour violation that entitles you to compensation. You should consult an attorney as soon as you can to get a consultation and protect your rights.
