Can employers see me on Glassdoor?

Resumes uploaded to Glassdoor are not searchable by employers or other users. The only time an employer can see your resume is when you submit it directly with a job application.

Is glassdoor actually anonymous?

Glassdoor, for example, is an anonymous platform because we want employees to have a place to speak their minds about their workplace experiences without their employers looking over their shoulder.

Can an employer change your schedule without notifying you?

The Federal Fair Labor Standards Act states that in most cases, an employer is allowed to change the work schedule of anyone over 16 years of age without prior notice or consent. You can ask employees who are exempt from overtime to work as many hours as you want, without increasing their pay.

Can your boss change your schedule last minute?

First—can your employer change your schedule? In most cases, yes. And in certain parts of California, if you change an employee’s schedule with less than seven days notice, you’ll need to increase your employee’s regular rate of pay for the rescheduled shifts.

Can I get fired for not coming in on my day off?

If you don’t work when your employer says you must, you may be terminated. Refusing to work when your employer tells you—including working on your day off—would be both insubordination and violating employer instructions, and so would potentially constitute good cause for termination.

Can employers send you home early?

Yes, you can send employees home early due to a lack of work. Exempt employees under the Fair Labor Standards Act (not entitled to overtime) would need to be paid their entire salary for the day. Non-exempt employees (those eligible for overtime) would generally only need to be paid for actual hours worked.

Can you refuse to be sent home early from work?

Can I send employees home early if there is not enough work or for disciplinary reasons? Sending nonexempt employees home before they have completed their full scheduled shift is perfectly legal. California, however, does impose reporting time pay requirements when employees are not permitted to work their full shift.

Can your boss tell you to leave early?

Answer: Yes, your employer can cut your shift short, but it comes at a price. Your employer must pay you for half of your scheduled shift, which is four hours. The idea behind reporting time pay is that employers should give sufficient notice to employees if work isn’t available, so that they can find work elsewhere.
