I work for the MDOC as a corrections officer. I am an alcoholic. In June I self reported to my Captain. In July I self reported to my Lieutenant. In September, during a disciplinary conference for abuse of sick leave, I self reported to the Warden and the Human Resource Officer. Ten days later I received notice that I needed a doctor's slip and a return to work alcohol test to return to active duty. Fri. Sept. 16 I called the HRO. She told me to report to work and I would be sent to Med 1 in Grand Rapids, MI. I work in Muskegon, MI. I drove a state vehicle. At Med 1, I tested positive for alcohol. Since then my paperwork changed from: Return to work. To: ***** ***** Follow Up. I have since served a 5 day suspension as my case was "expedited" at IA's request. I am planning to file grievances as I was only asked to sign the paperwork upon my return from my suspension. Should I speak with an attorney?

I have a man who is mentally disabled that has been harassing me for years. He has called my employer accusing me of stealing, having sex at work and most recently he is saying that I am harassing HIM. He has tried to blackmail me , get me fired and threatened me in every way possible. My employer is aware of this. I'm afraid if he continues I will be fired if they get tired of it. What can I do ?

I left my job today because my boss was verbally abusive
Hello!JA: Hi. How can we be of help?Customer: I left my job today because my boss was verbally abusive among other things. When I was hired I had a contract that said that I was salaried, would be provided healthcare, and PTO. After working there for three months (when my PTO was supposed to kick in) he told my that the trip I took was not covered, and that I wouldn't accrue PTO until middle of next year. Then I was taken down to hourly without a discussion, but an email that just said that I was now hourly. Finally he told me that he couldn't reimburse me for healthcare like he said originally. Also, I worked in a warehouse with four guys and he refused to provide climate control. In the summer it was so hot they would get dizzy as they were doing manual labor. There was no access to water (no water cooler or bottled water) we also were not provided with a break room. I was expected to work through lunch to be working for 40 hours but I did not have access to a clean or working fridge or microwave. There were also no right to work or any other posters anywhere that I'm pretty sure OSHA makes you put up. Today he demoted me for something I didn't do, so I quit. Do I have a case?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: GeorgiaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full time.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so.

Earlier this year I took a friend to the ER at St. Vicents
Earlier this year I took a friend to the ER at St. Vicents Medical Center. I am diabetic along with serverl other illnesses I am a migraine suffer and I have fifromyalgia. It is required that I eat on a schedule the keep my glucose level from crashing. on that day. we arrived at the Er around 11:00 A.M. I need to eat lunch between 11:00 and 1:00 or I face the proble of having my glucose level drive. Each day I take a slow release morphine for the pain of the fibromyalgia. I take that drug because I can not take the other reccommended drugs because because I have had tumors removed from my liver. I also had a migraine that day and I took the recommemded amoun of the drug to trrat my migraine. While in the ER with my friend I felt myself going into the crash. I went to the snack machine to get something to bring my glucose levels up but I was spiraling quickly. Once it starts it crashs quickly. I passed out. They checked me in. St. Vincents has my medicals records and my medical history so it seemed to me it woul be a good hospital for me to be in. I tols them at least 6 times that i was diabetic and my gluclose levels were dropping. They did not contact my family. My friend did. In he interim. A friend came in with her daughter, saw me and called other friends. A nursing practioner looked at my records saw that I take morphine and decidedd to give me narcane before waiting for getting my test back or reading all of my records. I have three cerebral anuerysms and the blood work showed that my glocose level was 42. It also that I ate half a sandwich that brought my levels to 92. However, after the adminstration of the narcane,which was extremely painful I still didn't come around. Additionally they still could not explain to my son why with a glucose level of 42 they found in necessay to administer narcane. When I asked the Np she stood in front of me and did a characture of me with my head to the side and my I close and said, You we like the anf we couldn't wake you." I have learned that narcane is dangerous for people with anuerysms. One of the doctors cme in an told my friends that that they should not have giveen me the narcane in the first place becase my bolld was 42. My records show that the attending phycian who first saw did not mention me mis using my drugs. then two days later, he says I may be abusing my drugs at home, Additionally, the Np that administered the Narcane was observed laughing with another nurse before she came in to administer the Narcane. It clearly gives the impression that St. Vincents poilicy is to profile the elderly, minority patients and decide the are drug abusers and then abuse them. Do I have a recourse?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This is a medical question and the problem took place in Florida. I attempted to check another catagory bu it would not change.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Yes I filed a compliant with risk mamagement. Their response was that the Narcarne was administered based on the NP's reccommendation and her supervising doctors stands behind her. It was done because They couldn't rouse me. When I saw my endocenologist, he said that it is not unusual for a per whose glocose level had dropped as low as mine not to rebound immediately. I forgot to tell you that they admitted me to the hospital and kept me for 4 days.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have all of my medical records from that hospital visit.
StateMy wife works for a company that recently changed its
Washington StateMy wife works for a company that recently changed its sick leave and vacation time to PTO (Personal Time Off). When it was complete because she was maxed out on both it put her and many employees at or about 300hrs. The company put into the new policy without explaining that at years end the maximum allowed carry-over is 80 hours. She and most employees were shocked to find this out just recently so my wife put in for her time off between now and the end of the year and of course it also has to factor in her accrual rate. She will be working about one day a week until the end of the year but the time off request was denied.Can the company take away hours already earned?How can an employee be compensated for these hours if lost? Buy back?Any help would be greatly appreciated.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Washington stateJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: non union full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
About a month ago, I put an HR complaint at my job after one
About a month ago, I put an HR complaint at my job after one of my employees told me that my supervisor was soliciting information about me while I was on personal leave. (recuperating from a miscarriage and concussion). This complaint led to many more meetings. After so much emotional abuse, I expressed to my employer that I was actively looking for a new job. Today, a few weeks after expressing that I was looking, my employer asked me to put in my resignation date. I'm not sure how to proceed with this. Can I refuse to put in a resignation date? If so, what can I say to them?
