What are my rights if I was hired and fired in the same week without any paperwork having been filled out?
Question Details: A national fast food franchasee hired me on Thursday and put me to work on Friday without doing any paperwork at all. I worked for them for 2 days but nobody had me on the clock. I asked the GM to help me with my situation, she asked me my name and SSN and procceded to put that info in the computer just so I can have an employee number. She also added my time there but still I had not signed any goverment paperwork. I called out 7 days after for an emergency and they fired me over the phone.Do I get pay for my time and this is legal at all?
Unless you had an actual written employment contract--which you evidently didn't--it is legal to hire and fire you in same week, without or without paperwork. Without a contract, all employment in this country is "employment at will": your employer may terminate you at any time, for any reason, without prior notice or warning.
But you MUST be paid for all time you worked. If not, contact your state department of labor or sue them (e.g. in small claims court, as your own attorney or "pro se") for the money. There is no "free" work, and even when you are fired, you must be paid for everything you did up to your firing.
