Michigan-I gave and employee a raise from 10.75 to 11.15; the bookkeeper made and error and increased to 15.00. I told her the next payroll to decrease to 11.50 to try and appease the employee and not charge the employee the almost 600.00 in back pay and now the employee is threatening to go to the labor board if I don't give her the raise and the difference on the last check?

I was originally terminated after 22.5 years for, if I'm reading the letter correctly, failure to meet performance and communication expectations with no eligibility for rehire. I asked for and got a termination review that changed the parameters of termination to terminated for performance and eligible for rehire in 1 year. I have some of the paperwork, but have a requested a copy of all actual evaluations and all write ups from 2009 and a copy of the term review. Am I entitled to those reports? I believe the company failed to follow its own rules of progression toward termination and that the termination was in part due to my vocal negative reviews of my supervisor's inability to manage.

I was fired from Petco because of an incident that happened

I was fired from Petco because of an incident that happened in grooming that was not my fault I was put on suspension pending an investigation. I was not questioned about the incident even though the code of ethics handbook states any employee being investigated will be questioned before any action is taken. I was not questioned at all. Since the handbook is a contract between employer and employee did they break the contract by not questioning me? I also worked at Petco for 2 years and every break or meal I was given I had to work off the clock. I would clock out work through the time and then clock back in is this illegal? I live in Illinois and am sure according to the Labor Board it is can I file a claim for back pay for the off the clock work?
