I worked overtime on a job in Texas back in 2012 and didn't get paid for it. With the fear of being terminated, I didn't say anything. I was the foreman on the job all of the other employees were compensated back pay. I am no longer with the company. Have I waited too long to address this?

I work for a large healthcare institution in Troy, Ny. Our

I work for a large healthcare institution in Troy, Ny. Our pay scale was capped 3 yrs ago with no notice. After many inquiries the parent company admitted that an error was made during a merger regarding our job title and others in the organization doing the same job have a pay scale $6 more per hour. Administration has said they will not fix this error. What should we do. There are 3 of us. I feel our pay scales should be raised and be given back pay. We all have decades of experience in our field.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New York.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No official filings. Just multiple inquiries to our immediate supervisors..and their emails and phone calls to the parent company. During the merger, we were just "forgotten" and "mislabeled". We didn't find out until a review and were told we were "capped". It made no sense because we knew the scale was $6 higher per hour. It has been one lame excuse after another until recently we were told the "error" has been realized. We were also told that it would most likely not be "fixed". I worry that if we went to a lawyer or labor board, retaliation wouLd happen and we would lose our jobs. There have been some job losses during this merger. We all have spotless work records.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I am concerned that if we persue this, the parent company will deny the error. We don't have proof in writing that they made this error.

I have a concern and I need some counsel. Oct 6, I had an

Hello,I have a concern and I need some counsel. Oct 6, I had an out-patient surgery, which went very well...however on Oct 7, at 2:30am after using the restroom I blacked out. Falling back, I hit head first on our bathroom floor. For the following two weeks I was in a doctors care and asked to go through a series of tests--CT scan, X-rays, MRI, Blood work, heart monitor system etc. Throughout the process I was struggling to and from work due to extreme dizziness and nausea. Also, in communication with my boss/employer with doctor release forms.Upon returning to full-time work on Oct 24, after feeling better (Not 100%), I was able to complete more than a half day. I decided to stop on my home to see my doctor again just to touch base and see if I need to have any restrictions. She wrote a note that said my patient has been in my care on Oct 24, and "is able to return to work without restrictions. But when possible he should structure his day to avoid continuous and mental or physical strain. On Oct 26th, I was told by my boss that I was being released of half of my duties because of lack of initiative for the department. On 29th, the new department manager told me that I was going from salary to hourly and that I should start documenting my hourly pay on Monday. On Nov 4th, they put me back on salary and said due to the doctor forms they can't make changes to my status. The HR department has recanted my boss's original statement of lack of initiative and restated the reason for releasing me from some of my responsibilities is due to the fact that I have post concussive syndrome and they hired a new manager to support me during my recovery. Essentially, I'm being asked by my boss to make a decision about leaving and moving back east by the end of the year with pay until Dec 31, which I told him last week that this was something my wife and I are considering. However, that means moving back east with no job and 6 children. One of my greatest fears today is that I am still experiencing symptoms from my concussion such as dizziness and extreme fatigue. My doctor form stated that these symptoms may continue for several months. Do you foresee any options that I have? Is what they did wrong? HR has asked to meet with me on Monday so they can explain their support/lie/recant as I recover physically.
