Issue is the lies that got you in their Door to work for Them and what you felt like once they started to bring up the mis state or left out altogether information about time off, sick time, closest ER for cutting somthing off is not covered by johnny balboa insurance man - so lets hear em"

Any employer who lies or bait and switches deserves a foot up their ***, or at least an employee that makes them feel as if they have one. As an employer, I try to make perfectly clear the requirements of the position and what is expected, take it or leave it. But to rope some one in with lies is dispicable. Thats what labor boards are for. Whats the upside for a kitchen in screwing their staff?

agreed. if the circumstances warrant it AND the restaurant is up front with you it is totally acceptable. when i started one of my jobs i worked 20 strait days but was told i would need "legs" to do the job, and that the g.m. would be out of town for my first week and a half and restaurant week would start right after that. i would later find out that if the restaurant was busy, the g.m. would always be there longer than me, even if i was there 14 hours. when it was slow he wasn't, and i worked less than normal restaurant hours. i think that is the most fair situation there can be
