My husband is a vested Federal employee who submitted his

My husband is a vested Federal employee who submitted his resignation with two weeks notice a few days ago (not due to pending termination). However, yesterday he was told he is being placed on Administrative Leave until his separation date. He was stripped of his credentials and access, and further told he is not permitted around the work site. He was not permitted to leave the office until he signed acknowledgement of the letter. Is this a permissible practice?

I received a phone call Thursday evening saying I'm being put on administrative leave pending an investigation. I don't know what the investigation is about, they say they cannot tell me, nor do I know if I'm being paid. What are my rights in this situation? I'm in Pennsylvania and I work in a day care.

What to do if I am put on administrative leave without pay?

I want to know what I can do regarding being put on administrative leave without pay today in a clinic where I work as a nurse. I was only told that reason involves me getting verbal order to give shot to a client, gave the shot and then the provider said that no verbal order was given. I was told not to come back to work, that the clinic would investigate and get back to me within a week. How can I defend myself? Is the clinic allowed to not pay me while I am on leave? Am I entitled to unemployment while I am on administrative leave? Thank you for any suggestions you may have.The clinic is in California. The employment is a full time job.

I am a federal government employee, I have been placed on

I am a federal government employee, I have been placed on administrative leave for positive drug test, the test came up positive for cocaine. I have never did cocaine in my life. I am retired military of over 25 years, I do take a lot of different medication and feel this is why I got a false read because I am diabetic. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Respectfully!

Was asked to take a urine drug screen test prior to starting

was asked to take a urine drug screen test prior to starting my night time shift.My manager said HR instructed her to have be tested as soon as I arrive at the hospital, i HAD NOT worked the night before. HR told me they received a call from someone 1.3 weeks ago, saying I'm sleeping on my job, acting like I'm taking drugs etc. I did a urine drug screeen and it was clean. My manager put me on administrative leave pending the urine drug screen results. I lost wages. since I was signed up to work Thursday through Sunday this past week. Do I have any recourse. I would like to have my wages I could have earned, and the report thrown out of my file. They did not interview or question any of my night time charge nurses who work closely with me or my co-workers, they simply took a stranger's complaint, who obviously doesn't like me, when i FEEL they should have asked my immediate superviosor or co-workers who work with me on a regular basis. I'm always upbeat and have never slept on my job.

I may be dismissed from service. I am a government employee,

I may be dismissed from service. I am a government employee, GS13-10 under FERS. I am 55 1/2 yrs old and have nearly 24 years of service. I have lost my security clearance because my supervisor claims I have a mental disorder. I have stated that this claim was filed because of an on going EEO complaint. Although two doctors have signed off and stated that I am fit to return to full duty, my supervisors insist that I see a government doctor. I refused their request and as a result, I have lost my security clearance because of what they call an undermined mental condition. Since the reason for termination is not due to misconduct nor bad performance; do I have the option of doing a postponed retirement or deferred retirement? I would prefer a postponed retirement. Will I face penalties if I start collecting annuities from my TSP at 55 1/2 years old? Should I wait to for the dismissal to be processed, or should I retire before the dismissal? Can I collect a payout on all the sick leave and personal leave I have accumulated, and how soon can I collect it? If I take out a personal loan from my TSP to help me with the transition, will that adversely affect my ability to collect TSP annuities if I have not paid back the loan? I'm I eligible for a non-competitive position in the government? Considering that I am in the middle of a EEO complainte and have stated that this revoking of my security clearance is an effort to stop my claim, can I request to be kept on paid administrative leave until the EEO claim is settled.***** ***** (GS13-10)Phone:(###) ###-####Email:***@******.***Address:*****Unit 102Windsor Mill, MD 21244

I was put on two week administrative leave this morning ;

I was put on two week administrative leave this morning ; while employer is investigating possibly perceived inappropriate text messages with a fellow female employee. I do not believe based on history of communication with this employee that our means or content were inappropriate. When I showed up for work there was a police squad car there and the owner met me in parking lot asking for my keys. This was highly embarrassing. I would like to resign immediately , but wonder if that's admitting guilt in any way ? It's a paid two week administrative leave. I'm real uncomfortable with a person involved in the investigation , as although employed have not spoken in quite some time due to what I would call inappropriate communication with myself on their part. Would it be best that I ask a lawyer to send my resignation ? I just don't want my reputation tainted in any way as I am a CPA and am CFO for company. My age is 65.

As we discussed yesterday, I sent the board a letter

Hi Allen,This is David Frank. As we discussed yesterday, I sent the board a letter requesting a hearing regarding the religious discrimination at work, and a written letter of how they plan to repair this with me, within 5 business days of the letter. The president responded today with an email, I am one of three items on the agenda. I am the first. The second is about revisiting the demands they put on me, in the letter they had me sign. They also want my time sheet brought to the meeting to approve the hours that I worked, even though I am on salary. The problem with this, is that if I don't get my timesheet in by 2:00 on the 31st, I will not get my paycheck on Friday, which is payday. I can tell by the agenda, that my issues are not being taken seriously, because the things they asked me to do in the letter, are the issues being discussed at the board meeting. My question is, how do I handle this? I wanted an unbiased hearing with them to hear my grievances, before consequences. Again, I am presumed guilty without being heard. Since we are a non-profit company, and our meetings are open to anyone, can I bring a witness to take notes on my behalf. I feel I have no one on my side. I feel that my letter had no impact. I look forward to your response.Thank you,David Frank
