I was fired 60 days after returning to work from FMLA. I returned to work, but did not have a full workload. They told me that I could not work from home on my scheduled day because I did not have enough work and I can't book admin or available time from home. 3 weeks after I returned to work, I was given a PIP. The PIP stated that there were previous conversations regarding performance and attendance back in Dec 2015, Feb 2016 and June 2016. They also stated that I had been requested by HR to complete the necessary documents for a background check because they never did it when I was hired, even though I had already been on the job for over a year and was not trying to promote. I told them I didn't think they could legally make me submit to a background check after the fact. Needless to say, a condition of my corrective action was to allow them to run a background check.I had my annual review on 7/21. I filled out my self evaluation and was very blunt that I was unhappy because I had not been given any additional training to move ahead, though my other co-workers had. I said that I was disappointed because the opportunities that were promised to me never happened. I took a $5 pay cut because I knew what my skills were and that if given the time and training, I would be able to advance. I also submitted my engagement evaluations to my clients that I had been servicing for over a year. All five were excellent; exceeds expectations and meets expectations. However they said that the client I had just taken over 3 weeks prior for a coworker who went on maternity said they gave me a bad review, though I never submitted an evaluation to that client since I had only had them for 3 weeks. That was there reason for letting me go. I also was chatting on our messenger with a coworker telling her that she did not qualify for being exempt and that she should say something. We found out later that our network messages were read by the VP, though I dont know if she read ours. Unlike other employees who have left the company, my toggle time tracking access was cut immediately, keeping me from comparing my timesheets to my paycheck and my employee file was deleted from the server. My aunt is an employment attorney said it sounds like they retaliated against me for taking FMLA and for possibly not wanting to agree to the background check.

13 years ago I received a citation for possession of alcohol underage 21. I was 19 and chose to complete a MIP. This has never affected my being employed. I recently accepted an offer with public school system and will be subject to an FBI fingerprint/background check. I did not disclose this information because I did not think it would matter at the time. What should I do now? Will this show up? Thanks.

I recently accepted a job in Michigan. I live in. I was set

I recently accepted a job in Michigan. I live in Virginia. I was set to start at the end of the month. I have already made all the arrangements to include finding tenets for my house. I flew up to Michigan for in processing. Part of the in processing is a background check, drug test, psychological evaluation, and a breathalyzer. I was not informed of the breathalyzer. And last I checked drinking is not a crime. I am not an employee yet, I don't work there yet, I'm not being paid. I go out the night before drinking. I failed the breathalyzer. So now they can't hire me. Also, I can now no longer work at any nuclear power plant for a year. I'm getting out of the navy in 2 weeks. So in addition to having a very short time to find a job, I can't even get one in my field. Drinking isn't illegal, I've down nothing wrong, and I'm being screwed. I want to sue. Do I have a case?

My problem stems from former employers. My personal background was sought out byprevious employer because of a petty jealous and mean spirit cowork which eventually spread from my job to my church and food chains, etc. Since then every job I get or anytime I put my social security on something, I get harassing stares, cold food any number of suttle mean behavior. I might add, I don't believe the companies I work for are responsible. A number of high upper people were fired because of the this harrassment. This is the reason I think they are trying to punish me. I am not trying to sue and I just want to know who and where this information in coming from and how I can stop it.

I currently work in Houston Texas Delivery and have been a

Hello,I currently work in Houston Texas for Favor Delivery and have been a contract employee for 4 months. I was under the impression that a background check was ran the first week of employment but that was not the case. They sent a link about 3 weeks ago to fill out and submit back to checkr. I figured they were switching to edoc online like everything else but that was not the case. That was the first time they had ran a background check which I find weird. Today they emailed me at about 1pm stating that I did not fit their criteria for the position after already working for 4 months which to me and others in my family sound like a lawsuit but I do not want to over step.I am afraid if I clock back in, because the system is still allowing me to do so, that they could say that I kept their card and kept using it without authorization if this issue is a potential lawsuit. I've called many lawyers for a free consultation so now I am reaching out online for hopefully some good insight regarding my situation at hand.
