Can I legally be fired for a management step down? 1 Answers as of May 26, 2011
I am a manager for a restaurant. I'm a college student too. They want me to be committed to 40 hours a week and they don't pay much per hour. I also get calls all the time on my day off and I'm required to do some things off the clock. I have just been accepted to a four year university and can not longer work 40 hours. I'd like to step down my management title and just serve a few days a week. Can they fire me for that? There are time that people have tried to change their availability and their response was we didn't hire you for that.
