    Default Abuse of Power

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: NY. Our manager, who is part of management, is creating a new team and is asking us to join. We have voiced our concerns about this new team and said our work would be better served if we stayed with our current team who we both work in a support role for. The manager replies: If you decide to stay with the current team your workload will not be enough as it will be moved to the new team, plus there will not be enough budget to keep you on staff. So basically, go along with the switch over to the new team or be fired. Is this even legal or entirely up to the manager's discretion?

    It is perfectly legal.

    Why don't you quit and look to be hired by someone willing to trade places with you so that you can tell him or her how to run their business? In the meantime you should be able to find both shelter and nourishment at any convenient Dumpster.

    Our manager . . . is part of management

    Just FYI, the concept of "joining a team" isn't particularly meaningful without some explanation of what that means in the context of your employer.

    Keeping in mind that your explanation of what's happening isn't entirely clear, your employer is entitled to organize its workforce in whatever way it sees fit and is entitled to change things on a daily basis if it wants. What would make you think that might not be legal?
