If you recall the sample contract I gave you in training had a clause that states that your schedule would be a minimum 8 hour shift. If you cannot work the 8 hour shift then you need to let the company your working for that every hour under the 8 hour shift will be back charged to them. This usually gets there attention and they make it so you can work the 8 hour shift.

When working at a commercial location that serves food, it
is against health codes to operate any machinery, even a vacuum cleaner while
patrons are dining. Also, most cleaning chemicals are not allowed while
patrons are dining. I know each jurisdiction will have its different
guidelines. But it is probably best to make it a general rule not to work
on a site that may have patrons dining. With that in mind...places such
as Las Vegas that usually have patrons 24/7, have much different guidelines.
I bring this up because we recently worked on a restaurant who assured us they were closed all day until 5:30pm when they open and close at 2:30am. But they forgot to mention that they had a lunch group scheduled while we were scheduled to work on their floors. This happened three days in a row and we had to pack up and leave each time and had to re-arrange our schedules.
Do you think a little clause on our contract should have included that we are unable to work if patrons are dining? We have a clause that states that they are responsible for the daily rate if we are unable to work that day.
