I work for the French subsidiary of an American company. The company pays me by directly wiring me money into my bank account in Israel. In the past, they have told me that their bank will not allow the transfer in shekels, which would be easier for me. I suspect that this violates anti-BDS legislation in many states and I want to report it. However, I am concerned that if I have to disclose my name it could lead to repercussions.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The parent company is located in New Jersey.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No. I wanted to find out if I'm protected first. The company that I work for directly does not, I believe, have to follow American law.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Nothing that comes to mind. I have to also clarify that I have not suffered from this personally. However the company's bank seems to be engaged in a boycott of Israel which I personally oppose.

I was hired by FedEx to train as a driver. $15 per hours

I was hired by FedEx to train as a driver. $15 per hours during training. I was there 3 days, & they told me not to come by on the 4th. During the first 3 days, there were some sexual innuendos made by the training supervisor. He kept wanting me to drop my pants in his van to try out the pants that is part of the uniforms. I refuses to, And he kept saying it several times. I finally went to the nearest restroom to change. On the 3rd day, he kept asking me if I needed help in cutting my grass, while staring at my crotch, & I ignore that. It's been a month. I have sent texts to my former supervisor to see if I'm getting paid for the 3 days I was there. He kept saying I am going to get paid, but like I said. It's been over a month, Neither have I heard from him nor have I been paid yet. What should I do?

I am an employee of a private firm that receives funding

I am an employee of a private firm that receives funding from, and has contracts with, several federal agencies to fill civilian positions with individuals that have certain levels of expertise.I was hired in August 2011 as a senior investigator and assigned to a federal agency in NJ. The hiring process is done remotely for the most part and I still have all of the correspondence.I moved into another position in October 2015 and was part of the interviewing and hiring process for my replacement. My replacement was hired as a senior investigator also and I subsequently learned that his starting salary was $10,000/yr more than I was making. I should note that the company does have pay scales.I did bring it up to the company recruiter and his response was that I was hired as an investigator, not a senior investigator. I don't believe I have the original job announcement but everyone who has been hired around the country for this particular position has been hired as a senior investigator. And as I stated previously, I still have my original hiring correspondence showing that I, too, was hired as a senior investigator.Although they did not concur, I suspect they realized they made a mistake because they quickly bumped up my pay for my current position.

My son worked for a company based in Oregon, although he

My son worked for a company based in Oregon, although he worked in Colorado. He became ill/injured due to the working conditions. He went to the hospital and was sent home to rest. His direct supervisor told him to follow the doctor's orders. Three days later they fired him, cancelled his health insurance and cut off all communication.His work load was three times more than he was promised when he was hired and everyone else quit as a result (he had to work 7 days a week, and well over 8 hours per day, although he was instructed not to report more than 40 hours per week because he was salaried), also the company promised compensation for his work mileage, which they then refused to pay after he signed the employment contract. I'm pretty sure they did this to every field manager they hired, because basically they all quit after a few months.He filed a worker's comp claim, which is pending. They fired one of his subordinates while he was still in the hospital after an accident that broke his back.I have two questions:1. He got no days off between early Nov and the time he became ill, despite begging for time off to go to the doctor because he was ill. He has been unable to work most of the past year because he has not had access to health care and has not fully recovered. Does he have a civil claim other than the worker's comp claim?2. Could there be a class action for breach or fraud in the employment contracts if this is, in fact, a pattern and practice.

I tested positive for THC and was brought in prior to take

I tested positive for THC and was brought in prior to take the test because they claimed two people smelled alcohol on my breath. Problem is I spoke to nobody on Monday when I got to work and did not walk by anyone. I blew a 0.0015. I entered EAP yesterday and informed HR of that. My final lab test was confirmed only for THC minutes ago. I have a meeting at 10:30AM tomorrow with HR. My gut feeling is they will fired me verses letting me follow through with EAP. I also found out through the nurse that tested me and from the EAP counselor that my employer has allowed several employees that have tested positive to go through EAP and were able to resume there employment. What do I do if they fire me? What if they offer me some sort of settlement like work for two months and get paid to give me time to find a job. If I don't, employment is done and I am on my own.JA: PayPal, Debitcard or credit card are all fine. Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: WisconsinJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: not union and full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I am not sure I have the money for advice

I worked as a server for a national company here in South

I worked as a server for a national company here in South Carolina. They are headquartered in California. About a month ago i changed jobs to be a server's assistant. My general manager at the time offered me a wage of ten dollars an hour plus a tip-out for this position. The tip-out isnt in dispute. The first check i received after working two weeks in a server assistant capacity was for six dollars an hour. I brought it up with my general manager and he said it was clearly a mistake, and he would have it addressed. I also brought it to the attention of another manager. I recently got my next check for the next two weeks work - it was still for six dollars an hour. The general manager that made me the offer has since been fired, so i brought the second check to the other manager i had been in contact with about the issue. He told me it was definitely a mistake and he would fix it. Then he also said that corporate never approved me for ten dollars an hour, and that he could only get me eight dollars an hour.Yesterday i spoke to our acting GM about the issue, and he reiterated that, despite being offered ten dollars an hour, corporate was never informed, and when they saw that my general manager was attempting to pay me ten dollars an hour, the checks reverted to six dollars an hour, and thats why my checks had been short. He agreed to rectify my past checks and compensate me up to eight dollars an hour for my work. However, he insisted that he wouldn't pay me the ten dollars an hour i was initially offered, because my old general manager apparently didnt have the authority to make that call. But that isnt my fault. I was offered, and accepted, a ten dollar an hour wage. All of the managers there knew this to be the case. It wasnt until a few days ago that corporate came back and said no. Is this legal? Can i enforce the offer that was originally made?I feel like ive been stabbed in the back
