I was called into my Patient Care directors office today.

I was called into my Patient Care directors office today. She had a list of complaints stating co workers have complained saying I have behaved in a manner not consistent with the hospital standards. The thing is some of these complaints are possible months or longer old. I was never approached about them before, my evaluations have been good. I am on a committee where I had words with a director and I am suspicious this is what this is about. I had already decided to resign my permanent position and work casual. The director tells me she will send me a copy of the meeting we had and I need to sign it . This makes me nervousJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: WIJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Apparently some things to HRJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I'm on workers comp for a neck injury. I'm waiting for them

I'm on workers comp for a neck injury. I'm waiting for them to approve surgery. I'm sick of going to pain management, it's not helping. But I still need disability notes to get paid from WC in the meanwhile. My surgeon says he don't need to see me until he gets approval. What is the longest disability note I can get from a doctor that Workers Comp will accept? I would like to get a 60 to 90 day disability note so I don't have to keep going back to a doctor I dont like and don't help me every month.Thanks

I am a RN that works casual. I am not considered part time

I am a RN that works casual. I am not considered part time because I receive NO benefits. I schedule myself days that I can work. If not needed I am the first to stay home with no pay.They force us to work 2 holidays a year which is the same amount as paid time off employees. I am compensated time and half if I work. But if they do not need me and I don't work I do not get the benefit of paid time off where as the benefit people not only work the holiday but also receive paid time off on top of it. Can they force us to do this?Also can they force us to work certain days like weekends and Fridays and the eve of the holiday since we receive NO benefits.

I have a question about PA employment Law. I have worked for

I have a question about PA employment Law. I have worked for the same company for 18 years. Was the Financial Manager. The President sold the company to a national company. They asked me if I would stay on. Of course there was alot of financial and legal stuff to transfer. The day they felt they had everything they needed, I was let go. I was assured that I would have a job going forward, but got nothing in writing. Although not really surprised about being let go, the fact that I was assured a job in individual and group settings, It is a bit curious to me. I was the only one who knew about about the sale and provided all of the due diligence information to the purchasing company prior to the sale. I suspect there is nothing I can do legally, but just want an opinion. Pennsylvania is an at-will employment state.

Good evening, I was diagnosed with lupus in 2003, but it has not been until the past 3 years that it has impacted my health. I felt the need to apply for the Ada services this year after submitting for the past 2 years a prescription for a computer uv/ glare protector to help minimize flares and Also I had asked if I could flex my work scheduled once per month ( regular schedule 9:30am to 6:00pm) to allow me to work early hours ( 8:00am to 2:00 pm) the day I get my monthly infusions since I'm unable to accrue and keep mi sick time for long due to appointments and my work hours) however my department head denied my request until now. I am now covered under the ADA (granted just this month, but just last week again one of the 3 or 4 time this year During casual conversations 2 out of seven make comments such as I should not make appointments to take the clients or make any commitments. Due to lupus I suffer from depression and anxiety and all the extra stress is making this worse more frequent in flares..

I was employed by a small private Home Care business is

I was employed by a small private Home Care business is Phoenix AZ. That company was purchased by a corporate business based in Oregon. I was given the title of Office Manager and became their employee on 5/16/16. In the following weeks, I completed forms for a background check and was given a drug screen form. I told my boss that I had a license in the State of Arizona for medical marijuana and that I would test positive for that drug. The screen results came back positive for marijuana. My boss told me everything was fine and she realized I should not have been given the drug screen, as the position of Office Manager did not require a drug screen. On October 18,2016 by boss told me they wanted to change my position to one that requires a negative drug screen result, could I please stop my medication and retest. I explained I was willing to do that and I would do a home test first to insure a negative result. I also stated that it could be 4-6 weeks before my body would be clear, and possibly longer. Yesterday, one of my co-workers asked if I had stopped using marijuana. Then I discovered that my boss had casually mentioned my health situation to three other co-workers. I feel this is in violation of my health information. I called my boss and asked if she had told these coworkers. She admitted that she had. When asked why, she said they were probably in meetings and overheard the talk. Are employers allowed to discuss private health information to other employees?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I work in the state of Arizona and the corporation is based in Oregon.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I am full time and I don't know what "at will" means.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
