My employer signed a contract with an outsourcing
company. We have to sign up with this company, or we are considered giving our resignation. Legally if they offer at least within 20% of our salaries, we are obligated to sign up. If we do not we are unable to collect unemployement. I live in the state of Pennsylvania with a hire at will
/fire at will policy. Is this correct?
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: To sign up with this new company. The company's job will be to reduce the work force. Once they state they no longer need you, then you can collect unemployment
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: This was not done with employees' knowledge and we still do not know what wages
will be, PTO
time or benefits. They are coming in next Wednesday and Thursday and we have to sign at the time. Also, I have worked at the company for 16 years and I am being told that I will be starting as a new employee.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Employment Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
