I'm working for my employer for 1 year now. My contract says 40hrs/w, but now my boss said that I have to work additional 30mins every day since it's "mandatory". Then she said she'll get HR to "update" my contract. Is this legal? Can she do that?
Anyways, I told her that I physically can't work more since my schedule is very tight. Her answer was that in this case, they will adjust my pay to "decreased hours". Which means same amount of work for less money...

Anyone regret going in house? Being recruited hard by a global company’s in-house lit dept (which are not all that common in general) and I’m so on the fence…. I am one of the few that actually enjoys working at a firm (esp the $$, being transparent) and I’m in a good position to make partner but I don’t want to work as hard as the partners here do for the rest of my life. But can’t decide if less stress/hours is worth losing a job I enjoy and taking a pay cut. Any insights???
