Legally, you can ask your non-union employees to do just about anything (unless it requires a license or something, let’s not go overboard here). But should you ask them to do everything? Of course not.

There are some things you shouldn’t ask of your employees, but what are those? (And there are lots of things that didn’t make this list like you shouldn’t ask your employees to buy you a Christmas present.)

Great list, Suzanne. I know of a company that fired an employee because he/she wouldn’t/couldn’t donate to the United Way as required by the CEO.
Even in a right-to-work state, this should be illegal unless outlined in the initial employment offer.
