    Default Hours cut for retaliation

    I work part time in a day care. I went to work today as usual and was told that my hours were cut back to three hours a day (was hired to work 4 1/2). I can't help to think this was retaliation for telling my supervisor last week, in advance, that I could not attend an after hours staff meeting to be held on Thursday and due to a previous appointment (Dr note was provided). I then called in sick on Friday due to the fact that I was sick (I provided a doctors note for my one year old who had a contagious illness that I had also caught).

    I know it does not sound like much of a reduction, but I do count on my salary. When hired, I had two job offers with same pay and selected this one due to the hours offered. I have had no previous problems and even recently received a raise. I can no longer work in the other day care, because I was also recently required to sign a no compete agreement.

    Can they just cut my hours for what seems to be retaliation? The reason given was that someone else would be closing. I would appreciate any advice anyone has on this. Thank you.

    Your employer sets the schedules for their employees. Nothing you posted suggests that illegal retaliation took place. If you had made a complaint to a government agency for any illegal activities, then you might have a claim.
