I used to work for this IT company that terminated my

I used to work for this IT company that terminated my employment 3 weeks ago. The reason they terminated my employment was that I had faked 3 $9 food bills while claiming for my travel expenses. I made it obvious that those bills were fake as I wanted them to terminate me rather than resigning. The problem is that due to those 3 food bills that aren't more than $30 in total, they aren't paying me $2700 for the rest of the claim which is completely genuine. They made me travel for their client assignments and the agreement was that they would cover all the expenses.Their HR doesn't say anything about it and has directed me to the company attorney . When I emailed company attorney, he told me that he would only furnish all the details about my alleged claims to my attorney not me.I need to know what are my legal rights at this point and how can I retrieve my money.Reason I faked these bills was that they were taking a lot of time in paying me my claims. I wanted to leave them and join another vendor for the same client but there was this no conotete agreement because of which I couldn't just leave them and join another vendor for the same client. So I made them terminate me so that I was free to join the other vendor and work in peace without going through this hassle of waiting forever to get my claim money back.Please keep in mind that I worked out of my home in Colorado and this company has head office in New Jersey

When hiring a non paid intern, what are the rules when it

When hiring a non paid intern, what are the rules when it comes to age and international students? What is the minimum age for hiring? It seems there are high school students getting hired for paid jobs so age wouldn't matter right?Do the regular rules still apply or simply because it is non paid, you can hire international students or underaged students (if there is such thing as under aged).

I run a dog day care boarding facility. When people quit it

Hi, I run a dog day care boarding facility. When people quit it puts dogs and our business in danger. I have them sign an employee agreement that states,The actual separation or termination determines the final date of active employment with Camp Canine. When leaving Camp Canine, we require that employees provide at least two weeks notice of resignation in writing and work their final scheduled days with complete professionalism and 100% work ethic. This will provide Camp Canine the opportunity to locate a replacement. If two weeks notice is not given or the employee does not work their scheduled days/times after such time, Camp Canine will withhold any paycheck(s) due to cover the cost of overtime and training. Each signs, is the legal to withhold their last pay check if they have signed this agreement? We are in MichiganJA: Because family law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MichiganJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not yet, but an employee is disputing saying they contacted a lawyerJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
