If an employee takes a paid sick leave day during the week

If an employee takes a paid sick leave day during the week but then works on a Saturday, does the time on Saturday count as overtime or straight time? Essentially, they worked 40 hours in the week but with the paid sick leave, it's a total of 48 hours, but since 8 is sick leave, is a separate line item?

Was "let go" with a 6 week severance package after 2years

Was "let go" with a 6 week severance package after 2years 9months of employment. Reason was they "are heading in another direction". It just didn't "gel". No attempt to set up plan of correction. Just told that some of my supervisees didn't care for me. I think it came down to a budget deficit that they wanted to try to correct by eliminating me (older, higher paid).JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?Customer: MassachusettsJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: New supervisor -I was hired by the previous supervisor who was let go last year.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MassachusettsJA: OK.

My Agency allowed my supervisor (the (defendant) and other

My Agency allowed my supervisor (the (defendant) and other Management access to files and evidence in my office during an EEO investigation of harassment, discrimination and retaliation. They boxed up my office after leaving it untouched for a year. I am still an employee on LWOP. I have accused them of tampering with evidence, and not protecting and preserving evidence during a federal investigation.I now want access to what ever evidence is left and to my computer files where I have evidence as well so I can rebut managements affidavits and the EEO Director for the Agency will not respond to me. ORM manager advised me to deal with the Agency EEO Director. I also want to request the video tapes of management cleaning out my office to be preserved? Any suggestions?

I was told by my supervisor in Albuquerque, NM that I need

I was told by my supervisor in Albuquerque, NM that I need to agree to her training plan or be terminated (told By her she had HR buy in).The training plan is for a research position that was recently vacated in which I have no significant experience in and is in addition to my regular supervisory duties. I haven't seen the training plan as of yet but the responsibilities for the position is expansive and the training has been intimated to be very aggressive.What are my options?It has been made clear to me that I will be terminated on the spot if I refuse to sign.I have recently filed a harassment/hostile work environment claim with HR regarding this supervisor and my work life has suffered significantly since. I feel this is her way of trying to force me to resign or be fired.
