Although I have not accepted your monthly subscription fee, PayPal has paid this $38 fee. I see this as a one time fee.
I have not been laid off. I have not been paid for valid sick leave that was due with paycheck by August 31 (7 days after August 24th end of pay cycle). How do I collect that sick leave?
If the two weeks recovery time exceeds my sick pay allowance for the year, I have not been paid vacation pay for the balance of two weeks time I was recovering from corinary angioplasty. How do I collect the vacation time due me so that I am paid for the full two week period of recovery from surgery which my Doctor confirmed was needed?
The balance of my hours worked from July 25 to August 8th (the day before my hospitalization) have not been paid (and will not be paid untill another one or two weeks of work is done and employer can bill client for the work). This means employer did not have the funds set aside to pay me when I was doing the work. While I was in the hospital, he was on a "pre-honeymoon" in London. He asures me that I will be paid for that time and I believe him. However, I have not been laid off so who will educate this employer that when you lay off an employee you pay him up to date. And, if you cannot pay him up to date, you continue to pay him his normal pay? I have not worked the month of September. I am still waiting for payment of August time. What are my employee rights for compensation for the month of September during which I have not been laid off, nor paid up to date, nor fired?
Per todays conversation with employer, I will be called back to work during this first week of October. Will be given one or two weeks of work to finish up that last project. Then, will be assigned a new project. I am a hostage here! What is my recorse?
