Yup, they can and will do that. You (generic) are suppose to make all necessary arrangements to show even if not needed. Try it like I've had to do, call every night for 2 weeks to see if I have to show up the next morning. Think that doesn't play havoc with the work schedule? Even worse I had to have someone on standby that entire 2 weeks during their scheduled days off because it was contracted position and someone had to be there in my position if I wasn't. My company didn't pay to keep floaters around that were not on contract.
