If you are a full-time employee and you are sent home early by cause of Thr company, you still get a check for 38 hours.

However I believe new hires don't get that until they have a year in.

I believe after the 90 days of being full time you are eligible. That's what I heard from a new hire.

Short work week is given after you 1 year seniority date. You get 80% of your wage for every hour you did not work till you get to 40 hours. A lot of people will say you get 37.5/38 hours, this is not true. You get 80% of your wage for every hour short of 40 you work.

There is other rules as well that pertain to OT, and when it happened before the SWW event happened.
