Can my employer change my assignment and the dates/times that I am supposed to work while on a modified duty?
Question Details: I am being re-assigned to a different duty station with different day off after I previously agreed to my actual modified duty dates, times and station. I feel that I am being threaten by my employer when they are saying that if I don't accept the new assignment I can't work. Is this legal?
It is 100% legal, unless you have a written employment (including union or collective bargaining) contract setting your station, shift, etc. In the absence of a contract, the employer has full control over where you work, when, and what you do, and can change shift, days off, station, duties, etc. at will. They do not need your agreement or consent. If you do not work where, when, etc. your employer tells you, you may be terminated for cause (for missing work and/or for violating employer instructions) and would not be eligible for unemployment benefits.
