After 2 years of employment I have been terminated due to a

After 2 years of employment I have been terminated due to a personality conflict with the CMO. I have never received an email of poor work (or even a phone call of poor work) and my requests for how to improve the perception of me have been answered by the VP that it is not about my work.Aside from the fact that I'm getting 1 month severance (making over a 200k salary) and was given no annual bonus despite achieving all objectives, is this an agreement I can sign just to get away from these people? I have it in a pdf form if it would help. THANK YOU.3.

I was red as an on-station fee examiner in 1997 by VA in

I was hired as an on-station fee examiner in 1997 by VA in Alaska. Taxes and SS were withheld and my schedule was made for half days, four days per week, by the Compensation and Pension staff. I did not need medical benefits as I retired from the Air Force.My CPA stated I was an employee and could only deduct CME personal expenses for self paid continuing medical education as a PA. I was not allowed to deduct travel expenses as they deemed me an employee of VA since they set my schedule and I was paid at the same time as all regular VA employees.With that, do I qualify for any retirement pay? I served over 20 years in the Air Force and also was granted 60% service connected disability.

I am diagnosed bipolar, receive disability from the military

I am diagnosed bipolar, receive disability from the military for the condition, and take medication to help me sleep. My medications leave me groggy and unable to drive to work until later in the morning. I have asked my employer for a modified schedule where I come to work later and stay later. He has said no. He is aware of my disability. Do I have a case? Is a modified work schedule considered a reasonable accommodation?

My employer computes gross wages (an agreed upon % of

My employer computes gross wages (an agreed upon % of collected sales) then DEDUCTS the mileage reimbursement I submit thus resulting in a new lower wage amount to figure the corresponding withholding. EX: $1,000 wages - $200 mileage = $800. Corresponding taxes are $181.11. Payroll is now calculated as $800-$181.11 + $200 Mileage Reimbursement =$818.89 net pay. I believe my net pay should be calculated as $1,000 - $250.89 (taxes) + $200 = $949.11. This reimbursement is for business miles driven in my personal car @ $.54/mile. Can they reduce my gross wages by deducting the amount I submit from an accountable mileage reimbursement?

I started a salaried position ,000 a year, fall to winter

I started a salaried position for 52,000 a year, fall to winter 30-35 hours expected, spring-summer 45-50 hours expected in the pest control field. I have never worked under 50 hours a week, last week was 7 days of work, 72 hours total. Am i entitled to overtime pay? The company says they do not give comp time for hours worked over 50 to take as days off and I will not get paid anything over my salary. I currently have one week vacation that can only be taken during the winter months. What can I currently do to not get fired but not work 60-70 hours a week. I feel I am being taken advantage of. I did not sign any paperwork when my job switched from hourly to salary. Is this even legal?

I am employee who has resigned from my company in Florida

I am employee who has resigned from my company in Florida and my last day is 7/22. Back in March I was given an advancement to attend a conference which I can not attend now.I agree that I owe the company a debt, and I'm trying to work out a payment plan with them that is reasonable and will not leave me without money until I start my new job.They want to take out money of my last 2 paychecks for the amount of $1,726.00. That is over what I make and it would leave me without money to pay my bills on time or eat, etc.I want to know what my rights are as to legally what they can do to me. I have asked them several times in writing to work with me and why I can't afford to pay it back before I leave the company.
