My employer requires me to work on my scheduled days off on occasion. I often do, but occasionally can't due to other commitments. They've written me up for these and threaten further discipline, including discharge for cause. Can they do this? Would it amount to cause?

If you have scheduled time off from work your employer cannot terminate you for cause. If your employer continues to threaten disciplinary action, including termination, for not working on your scheduled time off you should speak with one our employment lawyers so we can further assess your matter and determine whether there is any recourse to take while you are still employed with the company. If you would like to schedule a consult with one of our employment lawyers, please contact the number below.
