we are a small company (10 full-time employees). we have an employee that is not working out. we want to be fair to him. we want to give him notice, but give him severance... 3 months (he is a friend of ours). I know that is a lot. what can we do so that we do this in a way that benefits us from a potential unemployment claim down the road? that is, I would like to say, "Things aren't working out. Here is a severance (we pay you your salary for next 90 days), and in return, you sign...." and all that I want is that 1) he transition his work to us in the next 30 days (which will not be much... maybe 40 hours of work), and 2) that he sign something that says he is leaving voluntarily (so we don't get hit with some something negative in the future). (he is a young white male, so I don't think we need to worry about wrongful termination?)JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: VAJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: in what regard?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: nothing filed/reported

I work for a company that has recently decided to do away

I work for a company that has recently decided to do away with positions in the hospital. This will affect four employees total. Three of which have already been told about their position either changing or being done away with all together. One employee has not been told at all. This position will no longer be valid effective January 29, 2017. Our manager informs this one employee that she needs to stop asking questions about her job and badgering employees trying to find out if she will have a job at all in the coming weeks.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: What is the time frame in which an employer must let their employee know that their job has been eliminated? As it stands this employee will find out Monday afternoon that she will no longer have a job effective the following Sunday.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I'm sorry, I live in Arizona.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: As of right now, this employee has not reported anything to the CNO. I am her clinical supervisor and I am trying to help her in anyway I can.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Apparently this employee is in corrective action of some sort. Not sure what it is or if it has anything to do with the decision that the manager is making about not telling her.

I can't stand it any longer! My boss makes my life miserable

I can't stand it any longer! My boss makes my life miserable every moment. The tension in the building is palpable, you can cut it with a knife. She walks thru the building with quick steps, head down, a stern frown on her face. There is never a warm genuine greeting, there is never praise or recognition, there is no respect or acknowledgement of ones experience, feelings, thoughts or accomplishments. She has never asked me my opinion, or even how am I doing. She preaches "platinum services" platitudes for residents and employees alike. This is a joke, for these guidelines are ironically broken on a daily basis. Public humiliation happens regularly at daily management meetings. She recently attacked a spiritual advisor for simply expressing a very valid criticism as well as truthful quotes from residents. She once asked me "how old are you ? Why don't you retire?" Another time at staff meeting she asked me how it made me feel to bring in residents who were my own age." What can I do?

I work for a large company that is in the middle of

I work for a large company that is in the middle of organizational restructuring, and I have been on a medical leave of absence and on short term disability since the end of November. I was called yesterday to tell me of my separation from the company and that they would send paperwork in the mail. They said they would have had me come into work to receive this news, but my current health conditions restricts me from travel pending clearance from my doctor. They said I would receive a severance package which I have the option of accepting, but now due to my medical condition, I cannot look for other work or even interview, and now at the end of the month my medical coverage will be terminated, and with my health condition I am routinely in and out of hospitals and doctors, where having health insurance is extremely critical for me at this time. Is my employer in any violation or is there anything possible I can do?
