I am currently a commission based employee for a hair salon. I have signed a non-compete agreement and took the position based on what the employer falsely told me before I signed. I was told the salon had a huge "walk in" clientele found out two weeks later when I addressed what I was told and the owner replied by saying oh yeah no we never get walk in, also then a co-worker informed me that the salon deducted a 10% service charge off my commission which was never mentioned nor is in the agreement I signed. I confronted the only and said I was never informed nor is it in writing or I would have never taken the position. So on my pay stubs there is not an itemized list of deductions
and he said he does not have to include that..so he's profiting from my "service charge" and there is no records of that In his profit and loss statements every month. On top of it all we recently found out he stopped paying the rent for work space bc the building became bank owned and he said he didn't have to. Now their are bills being delivered by the new owner every week and the balance is now $17,000 and still has no intention on paying because he no longer is in a lease. A new lease was just delivered two weeks ago and has yet to address it. All while we continue to work and he still takes his commission and "product charge" from us but obviously is not covering the over head of the salon. My worry is I will have no place of work soon due to him getting evicted and him constantly avoiding the issue when we approach him. All at the same time I have a 3 year old who is disabled and my employer is very much aware all of
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?
Customer: I have not.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: Yes my boss is very aware I have a 3 year old who is disabled and my income solely goes to all her medical bills, therapies, etc. I have expressed how important it is for me to be informed on the status of my work space bc I'm worried one day I can come to work and not have one amd the monthly expenses I have to pay out of pocket for all her needs. I'm still left in the dust and am very worried. Would or could this qualify as a discrimination
case for him knowing what my income goes to and almost intentionally or possibly putting me and my child in a position to not be able to continue her medical care because he is not paying rent and lying to us all well knowing this could horribly effect a disabilied child? Or does this not qualify for me to file a complaint for discrimination....I'm also an "at will
JA: PayPal, Debitcard or credit card are all fine. 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.
