Kansas Employment Law: Is it illegal to work for two different grocery stores?

My daughter works at a very small health food co-op in one town and recently got a job at a chain grocery store in a neighboring town. The chain told her she’d have to quit her co-op job due to a KS law stating you can’t work in two different grocery stores.

I could see this as a store policy, but is it really a law?

    I do not see where this is a law. The store could have a written policy and also may have a non-compete clause in the offer letter your daughter may have received from either company, in which case, she can not work for both at the same time. I would ask the chain to provide you with the statue number so you can review it for yourself (I have a feeling they won’t be able to) Here is the link for Kansas workplace laws. http://www.dol.ks.gov/es/html/wagepay_DEE.html
