Have worked for Century Link for ober 18 years. More than

Have worked for Century Link for ober 18 years. More than half of those employed have been laid off. Those that were unproductive are long hone! In order to meet HR s requirements for lower ratings my supervisor (and i have done the same with my employees) have rotated each of us in that lower elbow to fairly distribute bonuses and pay raises. HR policy just changed requiring those being laid off to reciebe substantially less severance. I volunteered to be laid off to my boss with the understanding i would receive the old severance (30+ weeks), and now am being informed that because i am in the lower rating.... That i will be given 8 weeks severance only. Do i have any leg to fight back?

I worked for a company for a number of years and signed a

I worked for a company for a number of years and signed a non-compete agreement that stated I would not work within 15 miles and within 6 months after leaving. When I was going to leave this company to become an independent contractor in the same field working for a small business within 14.6 miles of that store, I was asked to stay on at the original company part time after putting in a two week notice of my departure. I accepted this agreement. Now the company has sent a debt collection to a third party agency saying that I owe a large amount of money that was never listed in the original contract. They refuse to state what provision has been violated but provide the original contract. Is working as an independent contractor a violation of a non-compete in this case? I contested the debt and asked for validation, this is when they sent the original contract with no specification. How do I proceed when dealing with this agency?

My employer has stopped paying my health insurance that I

My employer has stopped paying my health insurance that I have been promised. They paid for two months and then stopped without even telling me. I found out when I went for a physical. Also they owe me per diem money for a business trip I went on. Also I haven't gotten paid for my latest pay period. I am not sure how to recoup what's owed to me. Also I am not sure if I should keep working. It is a work from home job with an out of state employer.

A former employee for a construction company posted photos

A former employee for a construction company posted photos of construction jobs he did for his former employer ( The construction company ) on Facebook . He states on Facebook that "here are some of the construction projects I worked on for my former employer ( Company X )."The former employee and his former employer do not have a non-compete /non-solicitation agreement. It is assumed that the former employee has his own construction company which likely competes with the former employer.The owners of the construction company want the pictures taken off Facebook though it admits that the former did some work on the construction projects shown in the photos.Does the employer have any cause of action against the former employee that would require him to take the photos off his Facebook page ? For example, did the former employee need permission from the former employer to post the photos ?
