I am actively looking for a new job as Software Developer

I am actively looking for a new job as Software Developer because i am not satisfied in my current employer company . Please clarify on below :(1) If i accept a job offer by signing it with other docs with the condition to join new company after 10 days and in between of these 10 days if i get some other better job offer from another company , then can i not join the first company by saying that i have better offer and i have accepted that now ? Is there any problem just because i already have accepted the offer of first company by signing the offer letter ?(2) What should i see in Medical , dental & vision insurance of new employer before accepting the offer or it does not matter much ?(3) What is non-compete agreement and how does it affect me as an employee ?

I was terminated over the phone on Wednesday 9/21/16. I never received any performance reviews or an explanation as to why I was let go. I did not receive my pay on that day. I do have a company vehicle and a few power tools. They are threatening me to not send my paycheck until tools are returned and vehicle. Is this the proper protocol?I have never been fired before and feel very vulnerable like I have no rights or say in the matter. I live in the state of Missouri.

Michigan-I gave and employee a raise from 10.75 to 11.15; the bookkeeper made and error and increased to 15.00. I told her the next payroll to decrease to 11.50 to try and appease the employee and not charge the employee the almost 600.00 in back pay and now the employee is threatening to go to the labor board if I don't give her the raise and the difference on the last check?

I left my previous employer last month in August. I was

I left my previous employer last month in August. I was there less than 12 months and have to pay them back the relocation bonus by November 24th, per the offer letter.After leaving, they withheld two expense reports (approximately $2,300) from July and told me that they will not pay my expense reports - that they will deduct that amount from the relocation bonus I owe them.It is my understanding that they can't hold my compensation hostage, in that the terms of the repayment of relocation bonus has not bearing on my compensation. I don't want to confuse the two issues either. I read online that in some cases when a company does that, that it negates the terms of loan repayment, not sure though.

I was on FMLA for 2 months and my employer as always

I was on FMLA for 2 months and my employer as always continued to deduct my premiums for my private coverage for Colonial Life Insurance from my biweekly paychecks. This coverage included Cancer policy, Critical illness policy, Accident policy, Total disability policy and Hospital Income policy. The middle of August I received my disability monies from Colonial with a letter explaining need to deduct $209 of monies due me to "keep disability premium up to date" as they had not received payment from employer! For weeks I have been hassling with Colonial, HR director and corporate accounting trying to straighten out so Colonial can reimburse me for the $209.! Now, I am advised by Colonial Life that employer is in the rears since June on several policies and since July on 2 others! I will receive the refund due me once premiums have been paid! Mind you, all these monies were deducted from my paychecks, paid time off and sick time but premiums not paid? Who and what type attorney would I look for? Thank you! This is so wrong and thievery !

I work for 2 men that co own a business. I made a loan from

Hello. I work for 2 men that co own a business. I made a loan from one of them -- my boss for $20,000. I signed a promissory note in March for him to repay starting in Sept--which i have started to repay. He was making payments for this loan on my credit cards so I could withdraw the monies from my card a little at a time in order to fulfill the loan amount. He told me to alter his bank stmt to show these deductions he was giving me as some type of credit to his account. I really didn't see any harm in this as I was changing a transaction of my own. Well I made a mistake and the accountant caught it. I immediately sent him the correct bank stmt explaining what my boss had told me to do. Well that went over like a lead balloon. The other owner I didn't make the loan from confronted the one I made the loan from. He lied to him & said he knew nothing about this loan! Well I got fired and now they are collecting the money back from their insurance company as I cannot pay it all back now.I do not have the money to do that with. He said he was not going to press charges. MY head is still swirling from shock. So the fact he is not going to press charges...does that mean the insurance company will not come after me for this money? And he said he will not let me collect unemployment or give me my last check.

I have many questions... My husband works as a Physician

I have many questions... My husband works as a Physician Assistant. He is employed as a full time salary employee, yet I notice he is being paid on an hourly bases. For example he is suppose to work 36 hrs weekly but if he is scheduled for 24, his employer do pays him for 36 but states my husband still owe them 12 hrs. Therefore, the following week they deduct the 12 hours from his check so if he works 48 hours he only gets paid for 36. By the same token, if they only scheduled him for another 24 hours they keep adding up the hours he owe. Also if he works the night shift on a Saturday night (the end of his pay period) they only pay him for the first 5 (7p to 12 midnight) and the additional 7 hours goes to the following week. This situation does create more owe hours. If he works more than 40 hours a week, sometimes 80 hrs per week he gets pay no overtime, just the hourly pay. Can an employee be both salary per contract and hourly per pay? The job only provides health insurance as a benefit (of which we pay the full amount, proximally $600.00 per week. They just take the money before taxes. They don't offer vacation time or sick leave pay. My husband is not a contractor, they control his time and schedule and also upon signing the contract they do not offer paid increases.My husband is a senior citizen that lost his last job (after 14 years of service) due to budget problems but when we found out they hire two new young PAs the week after he left, we sued them for age discrimination and were able to settled. Ever since, my husband had a hard time finding a job and our bills kept paling up; therefore, when this job came along he took it.We live in NY.My questions:Can they dock his pay the way they do?Aren't they suppose to pay part of his health insurance, at least my husband part?
