Answer for Mandatory Overtime

Here’s what Alan had to say. Hope he answered your Q. Glenn

  1. If an employee is off on vacation, they can not be made to come in for a Saturday shift. The requirement to provide vacation time is defined as weeks away from work. The minimum requirement is to take vacation in whole weeks. If a person is asked to work a Saturday shift, in a week during which they are on vacation, this person has not had a complete week away from work, so the requirement to provide vacation time has not been met.
  2. Other than this, employees can be required to work a Saturday shift. It’s considered within management rights to set the hours of work for employees.
  3. If employees do not report for work as required for a Saturday shift, they can be disciplined, but reducing their vacation entitlement can not be part of this discipline.
