California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
I dont have a contract and it is available to every employee in my position.
it is automatically provided and no one has to request it. This benefit was part of my old company and when we were acquired in a deal done nationally with the new company in August 2006 the benefit disappeared off my paycheck. I was never told it would continue and did not have any reason to believe it was part of the new company's benefits. I knew it was available for my direct reports who are titled Account Executives and they do outside sales work. I did not know it was available for managers.
should i seek attorney with any specific specialty or just any general lawyer, it is a large global company.
