My boss says he is going to dock everyone 20 hours pay because 4 workers are taking 1HR breaks that they shouldn't be. Is this legal ?

i am not among those taking breaks yet i am threatened with the pay cut just the same.

Nope... Not at all. It is called theft. If he does that, you can sue the company. Those taking the breaks should be the only ones punished... but they should not be docked an excessive amount. Just the amount that they stole from the company. Then they should be fired.

1.Buy a pie
2.Locate your Boss
3.Throw the Pie at your Boss
4.then surprise ur boss by throwing another pie at him
5.go buy a brand new car with 500,000 you just made

people say things all the time, it may just be an empty threat to get the rest of you to make sure the 4 tow the line.
if you have a union Rep, let them know what is being threatened and they can nip it in the bud.
unless he's the owner, he has a boss too. you can always go over his head to complain about the threatening and hostile work environment.

good luck. bad bosses are the worst!

it is absolutely not legal!! if you tell him that you're going contact the state labor board and the wage and hour commision,he'll know he can't legally fire you for being a whistle blower. what he is doing is stealing from everyone in the ( ridiculous) guise of punishing others. he knows what he's doing is illegal,and you can bet he'd have you guys in hot water in a snap. so why let him do it to you all?
