A job application is not a contract. If he hired you based on your availability to work than he knew before hand of the extra hours. No one can force anyone to do something they dont want to do. It is illegal and against the law to force someone to work more hours than what they were hired for. If you work 40 hours a week and he forces you to work more, I would highly suggest to call the labor board.

How do you purchase homeowners insurance?

Just like with any other insurance product, there is an application that you will complete. The application and policy together become a legal and binding contract. If you do not tell the truth on the application it can be deemed as material misrepresentation and can be a reason to void the contract so it is important that you tell the truth when answering all questions on the application.

Can employees pay be changed from weekly to monthly?

Yes. This is not an unequivocal "Yes" if there is a collective bargaining agreement in place between employer and a union representing the employees. If that agreement calls for weekly salary payments, the employer would be prohibited by contract from changing the pay period. The employer could go to the union and ask that it agree to a change in the contract pay period, but the union would have to agree. Of course, when the contract expires, the employer can demand a change in the pay period, but that will then become an issue for the new contract negotiation. If the contract requiring a weekly pay period is no longer in effect and if the employer insists on a monthly pay period, the union might refuse to accept that condition and go on strike.

Can a human service agency require a clinical consultant subcontractor to cover themselves with workmens comp?

Subcontracting and You The magic word here is "subcontractor". Since a subcontractor is not an employee, that subcontractor is not covered under the policy for work-comp which is the umbrella for the employer et al; and, should the subcontractor become injured in the course of normal working duties and surroundings, no employer wishes their liability insurance to become taxed as a result. And so, with that type of thing in mind, an employer seeks to protect themselves from incurring any further liability than they have to--- and they do so by writing contracts which contain provisions which stipulate details designed to do just that. They hire subcontractors rather than employees using these contracts. Anything one person chooses to put into a contract, they may put in; and, any contract another person chooses to sign is a contract. The employer can force you to do nothing; but, if you signed a contract saying you agreed to do it, then you are bound by the contract. If you do not sign the contract, you are not so bound; but, neither are you engaged by the contract writer. The reference here is to a contract; and, it is important that the terms and conditions of that contract be spelled out clearly. A subcontractor working under a verbal contract, a handshake, a stack of employment-related paperwork and a smile is not a subcontractor--- no written contract has been provided and agreed to. A subcontractor has a certain weight when dealing with an employer that an employee doesn't have: a business-to-business relationship. That means that contracts can be brokered to appease both parties.
