What happens if you sign a contract to work certain days and the company breaks that contract?
If both you and the company signed a contract for you to work on certain days and the company does not honor the terms of that contract, they have broken the contract and are potentially liable for all backpay for days not worked. However, you would need a good labor lawyer to work through the contract and verify the company actually broke the contract - there are usually exceptions and exclusions in the subclauses of the contract that can allow a company to not schedule work on some contracted days for a variety of reasons. You could also contact the Department of Labor to see what your options are regarding pay and the contract.
