If I am scheduled to work, then arrive and get sent home, do I have a case against the company?
I was scheduled to work today and when I arrived I was sent home. The company is trying to get me to quit by cutting my hours drastically. Also, I am frequently in a situation where I am unable to clock out on my own, so I have to count on a manager to put the right time. It should also be noted that I am docked 30 minutes for lunch every day, even if I didn't have time to take a lunch break. Should I talk to a lawyer?

You do not mention as many of those who post what state you are in. In California they would have to pay you. No way of knowing if your state also has this law in place.

Not sure what you mean by "a case against the company". A lawsuit, since you mention a lawyer? No. But depending on where you are, and when they tried to contact you to tell you not to come in, you might have a right to be paid for some minimum length of time. As far as cutting your hours drastically, that's their legal right, although you might be eligible for unemployment. For the lunch break, they have to pay you for the time you actually work, whether you are supposed to be at lunch at that time or not, but if they tell you to take a lunch break and YOU decide you are too busy without their authorization, they could fire you for not following what you were told to do - without knowing more about your job, it's hard to say on that - if for example you're the only nurse in an area and your taking a lunch would leave patients unattended, that's very different that if you're in customer service and your taking a lunch would mean some incoming phone calls wouldn't be answered.

Why are they trying to make you quit? I would talk with a lawyer. Call around to see who will give you a free consultation.

Keep track of the hours that you worked.

and no matter what, DO NOT quit your job! Keep going until they let you go. Otherwise, you won't be able to get unemployment.
