I am the supervisor of an employee that was told today that she would be taken out of her nurse manager position in 10 days. She was offered a lower position to work on the floor as a charge nurse with different hours and less money. She has been with the company for 9 years and a nurse manager for the past year. The administrator interviewed someone she thought would be better as a nurse manager and hired her as the nurse manager.

I hurt my back in June 2015 and directly told my manager I

I hurt my back in June 2015 and directly told my manager I needed an accommodation (I also have a disability - scoliosis). It was never addressed and 2 months later I was written up for working from home and absenteeism. I again stated my back issues, it was not addressed, and in January 2016 I was written up a second time and threatened with termination. In March 2016 I found out I was not given a bonus for the year because of the write-ups. Only then I again asked and finally received my reasonable accommodation - demotion with an ability to work from home. I had to take time off work due to depression and anxiety because of all of this. I lost wages, a bonus, and experienced emotional distress. I would like to submit a complaint to the EEOC - do I have a case?

I was interviewing with a company for a director spot at the end of July I was asked to fill-out background paperwork. About two weeks later I inquired about the status of my background and was told in email "Thanks for following up. Your background check was a full pass. We don't normally contact references during the background check stage, and will use your passed background check as an indication of good standing. The next step, given that the entire team is in agreement, would be to make an offer to you. Unfortunately, I don't have an exact date on when you can expect an update but I do know we are aiming for October start dates". Yesterday I received the thank but no thanks email. I was very surprised and wondered if they broke any employment rules

On yesterday my supervisor approached me and stated he

On yesterday my supervisor approached me and stated he needed me to signs something.It was a payroll deduction form for the deductible to repair damages done to the ambulance that I had an accident back in June. I asked how much was the deductible. He stated it was $1000. I ask was it going to be divided between me and two other employees that had accidents in the same ambulance causing damages on different areas of the ambulance. He then stated that we would all be required to pay $1000 individually, that there will be 3 separate deductibles paid. When I stated that you only pay the deductible once and since this is the first time the vehicle will be repaired how is it 3 different deductibles. I talked to my two coworkers that were involved in causing damages to the ambulance, they had no knowledge of this and were not told anything about paying for repairs. I also asked my supervisor why was the company not paying for the repairs, he simply stated because I caused the damage, but to my knowledge there is nothing in the policy stating that an individual would be held accountable for damages and I cant get straight forward answer to any of my questions. I dont have a problem with paying my part of the deductible, but I simply refuse to pay the entire thing if I wasn't the only person to cause damages. I am aware of how my employer operates, so if I refuse to sign and agree to pay the $1000, I will more than likely not have a job anymore.

I was demoted and believe I have been unfairly accused, what can I do.Just a little about the incident: I work as a kindergarten aid at a private Catholic school. The Priest Father Jerry Regan is over the school, Joe is the principal and Ann Marie is the athletic director. Joe and Ann Marie are the two I supposedly said were having an affair. Father Jerry ask me to meet him in the church office with HR and told me someone had said that I said Joe and Ann Maire were having an affair. I told them I have never said anything like that. Father Jerry waited three weeks to tell Joe and Ann Marie were disciplined and I was to report to mothers day out about half the pay.
