Our company does not have an HR department. The handbook,

Our company does not have an HR department. The handbook, however, directs employees to contact the HR manager with questions. They also change policies in the at whim to suit situations. (i.e.) in the current handbook (and since the 10-9-2012 version of the handbook) it states that any unused vacation time will be paid out on the next paycheck AFTER the employees anniversary date. Now that I've reached my anniversary date and have 80 unused hours, the employer has stated (without changing the handbook yet) that I should have USED the vacation time and am not entitled to the payout. They do this with SEVERAL policies and then change them back at whim to suit their needs for any given situation...JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MontanaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: There is no employment agreement, it is non-union, and I am a full time employeeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: yes, they have changed our Medical insurance. We are employed by and receive checks from one company and are medically insured by another of their companies (that none of us actuall work for) is that legal?

I did not receive my final paycheck from my last employer. I

Hi. I did not receive my final paycheck from my last employer. I was laid off on end of the day February 21, 2017. I should have received my check on February 24, 2017. The employer claims he mailed my check to my home that Friday night. I still did not receive the check. I had texted another employee and the employer told him to respond to me that the check was in the mail... that was last Wednesday. I went to the employer stating that I didn't receive the check. What are my rights in getting my final paycheck?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PAJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At will and full-time.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I asked the employer if he could issue me a regular check and he said he can't do that because all of the taxes were taken out of the original check. I asked him to stop payment on the original check in order to reissue me a check. He claimed that he would call and stop the original check, but I don't believe he did so... I'm not 100% sure. Does he have a grace period before legal action can be taken against him?

My employer is declining my expense claim.I have agreement with the Finance lady that I could use my airmiles to book a flight in stead of dollars. The main reason were cost savings (in $ is was over 2000, the equivalent in airmiles only 1000).Now the CFO is having an issue and she also claims that these airmiles were likely earned while travelling for the company.Background: I have paid with my own card and then expensed it.So what legal ground do I have here? Can they decline the expense stating it used airmiles that I earned while travelling for the company?
