My wife works as a research assistant for a public university. She is unclassified, unrepresented, salaried, and exempt. The office she works in has regular working hours, but occasionally must accommodate patients after 5pm. Her immediate superiors have just now told my wife and her coworkers that they must inform them one month in advance of plans to take an evening class. This is in the state of Ohio.
I am curious to know what the law says about this. Can an employer legally require employees to disclose information about personal matters that are not work-related?
