Employer asking me to do more work per day with no notice. Should I contact labor board?

I work for a large corporation & for the last 4 years loved going in daily. Better still, I never ‘worked’ a solid 8 hours ever. I would say the max work I did on a given day was 50% while the average was 30%. The other time was spent on personal e-mails, internet, socializing, etc. To sum it up, I was a top performer in the company due to their own disorganization, shined among clueless morons, and knew how to act like I was working. Anyway, the workload has changed in the past 6 months. With people leaving, firings, etc it has come down to more work for me. My dispute is after 4 years of coasting, I don’t feel my employer can expect me to double my work efforts overnight. They should realize that emotionally, a person needs to gradually increase workload. After all, it is their disorganization in the first place that caused this. As odd as this seems, do I have a case if I contact the labor board?

be glad your boses didn't notice you stealing from them. funny how you don't mind taking their money for not doing your job but now you don't want to do the job. just're just a leech anyway.

Quit crying and start doing the work you should have been doing long ago. The 10% of us that do 90% of the work are sick of getting stepped on.

I would just go to work and what is expected of me. You sound lazy and not very reliable. With that attitude I would give you your walking papers. As far as contacting the labor give me a break.

You COULD have worked hard during those four years and been in line for a top position now. You chose to slack off and you are getting what you deserve. You have no case, they are merely asking you to do your work. I imagine you will be jobless soon.
