I don't see this ever going to court, a company has the right to set it's own employment standards within the law, and unless there was a
pre-employment agreement they will not win.
I noticed in the video they said "fired" but the reporter said "laid off", not sure which it is. I know in Canada "fired" means no employment
insurance but if "laid off" you qualify for it. Either way the employer, if he's smart will have a disclaimer in the employment agreement stating
something like "hours and duties may change as seen fit", so if you agreed with the employer and your hours change and you don't work them, yes
What about those other people working there, should the company also compensate them too, even though they are at their jobs and not complaining ?
What about their religion, does it not count ?
Simple fact, you work, you get paid, you don't get fired, how hard is that to understand ?
