What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Michigan
This has been an ongoing issue at my workplace and am just curious the legalities of it.
Basically we are hourly employees; we all have company provided cell phones; we are on call every couple weeks. Well, I turned my cell phone off last night after I left work and sure enough, they were trying to get a hold of me. I come in today and was reminded that I am to keep my cell phone turned on even when I am off the clock. Can they do that? Is that legal?
Granted, normally, most calls are only a couple minutes; and the time doesn't get added since it is so small. But it's just the principal with me. It seems like they are just taking advantage of us. It just seems wrong to me.
