Law Day 2019 is on Wednesday, May 1, 2019: Sick day law?


Wednesday, May 1, 2019 is Law Day 2019.

Sick day law?

There is no law, it is solely based on company policy.

I have worked for companies that go either way.

Target requires the employee them self call in sick unless they are dead or close to it.

My current employer does not care who calls in as long as the call is made more than 2 hours prior to the start of the shift.

Guess that's the difference between union and non-union work.

Please Explain Law Day to me!?

The date an obligation becomes due; sometimes refers to the closing date."Law Day" was created in the late 1950s, by the American Bar Association to draw attention to both the principles and practice of law and justice. President Dwight D. Eisenhower established Law Day by proclamation in 1958. May 1, which is also International Workers' Day, was chosen as Law Day.

Fifty years ago President Eisenhower proclaimed the first Law Day a "day of national dedication to the principle of government under law." May 1 2008 is the 50th anniversary of Law Day.

Law Day 2008 will explore the meaning of the rule of law, fostering public understanding of the rule of law through discussion of its role in a free society.


What is the law in working many days straight? ?

What is the law in working many days straight? ?

Depends entirely on State law, and you didn't tell us where you are.

Federal law on overtime is simply that anything over 40 hours in a week is overtime. Under Federal law, if that 40 hours is spread over 7 days every week, you could work 365 days straight and never get overtime.

Edit... The first poster is wrong about when the week begins and ends. The week begins and ends whenever the employer chooses. He can make a work-week be from midnight Friday to midnight Friday, or from 6am Monday to 6am Monday - or even from 2:30pm Wednesday to 2:30pm Wednesday if he wants. The only thing he can't do is move the start and finish times and days from week to week to reduce his overtime bill.

EDIT... California overtime law is stricter than the Federal law. In CA, any hours over 8 in a day *or* 40 in a week are overtime, In addition, all hours worked on the 7th consecutive day of the workweek are overtime, even if you do not already have 40 hours of straight time for the week.
