Mom in need

I have a 23-year-old daughter that recently graduated from college. She entered her first job as a so-called resturant manager in a salaried position. Benefits were promised; no set schedule was issued as 9-5 or 10-6.

She has not received any benefits as of yet since working over six months. Boss says he needs more employees to get a better rate. That's what he's been saying all along. She was issued a company cell phone and gets calls from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. This resturant has not opened up yet and who knows when it's going to open up. She is a goffer for everything. Wonders if she'll ever get the "manager" positon. Her tyrant boss expects her to be available to him all day and night. I there is no answer, he sends nasty emails to her on why she didn't answer her phone and the cc's it to the co-owner and the lady of human resources.

Additionally, she's asked to drive everywhere in her own car to deliver things, pick things up, and laughed at her when asked for mileage. She spends over $100 in gas a month on company business.

If she says she wants an 8-hour schedule he'll fire her; as he's done in the past with other people come to find out. Although she's searching for a job with great anxiety, what is the law for a young person when they get hired on as salary. I want to have this info so she can know it before she gives the boot. She's afraid to tell him anything until she finds a new job because she has rent to pay.

Plus this employer has well over the amount of people required in order to buy insurance and offer it to employees. They own five restaurants and are just cheap and giving lip service.

Grant it, the best thing is to get out of there, but in the meantime, knowing the labor law is nice
