Company not following employee manual?

Posted by on Jun. 27, 2013 at 11:45 AM

So I am a nurse at a local nursing home. It is a new facility that opened. Well I worked Memorial Day. According to the employee manual full time and part time employees both receive holiday pay (time and a half) if they work the holiday. Well the payroll person and administrator (who just asked the payroll person) says that only full time employees get holiday pay. I am part time. Is there anything I can do legally to make them pay me holiday pay? They want to make me work every other holiday (full time and part time employees are supposed to) and I wouldn't care if I just didnt have to work any more holidays ESP x mas and thanksgiving

I took the manual to them but they said the policy in the book was misprinted and they don't have a copy of the actual policy

That's bogus. I'd try someone higher up. Until they provide you with the real policy you are due the pay. I would refuse to work them if they aren't going to follow the manual that they provided.

But most places don't pay holiday for part time so I can see that it was a misprint but they are still required to pay until they provide you with an updated manual.

That's like them saying that the pay they initially wrote in your contract was typed incorrectly..."oh sorry, you thought you were making $17 an hour, ohhhh, hahaha, yeah, no. It's actually $7, sorry about the misprint."

I would definitely take it higher than the people you've already talked with. What is written in the employee manual that you're given is what they need to follow. They can't have one set of rules that's secretly hidden from you and expect you to follow it.

I would show them the manual and say "it says right here that PT employees get holiday pay too" and if payroll won't do it, go up to the next person in line

Report them to l&I for shorting your wages. They'll ask for your proof and then their proof, if you are right then they will make the company pay you.

What is l and l ? I will report it. Makes me so mad. I don't depend on the money thankfully but still.

I think they meant L&I, which is Labor and Industries. :)

Department of labor and industries. They're there to help, its free, and your employer can not retaliate if you bring them into it. And its a really easy process too
