    Default Can Your Employer Require You to Work a Shift on Last Minute Notice

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: DC
    Hi,
    I work part time at a restaurant, and my manager is asking for someone to pick up a shift because the scheduled employee is stuck out of town due to holiday traffic complications. If no one volunteers, he says he will pick a name out of a hat, implying they have to work, with 4 hours notice. Is this legal? Thanks,

    It is called employment at will. If you do not show up, you risk they will no longer employ you.
