I was a receptionist for a company and was fired for a conflict of interest. All I did was answer phones and make appointments for our service techs. I started dating a person from one of our vendors. I do not sell or make any decisions in the company, so how can this be a conflict of interest on my part.

Can employer 'retaliation' be based on me complaining to a

Can employer 'retaliation' be based on me complaining to a Board Member about being passed over for promotions(I was never specific about any of the protective characteristics) and the Board Member addressing my immediate supervisor to find out about my status, and my immediate supervisor removing me from the position 4 days after the board member spoke to her because I never addressed being discriminated again, just being passed over?Also, can employer 'retaliation' against me be based upon after I quoted statistics about a Board Meeting about the lack of Black male teachers in our school district, the next morning, a clerical worker told me that I did not have the support of the teachers union in the position that I applied for because a lady on the hiring committee was 'offended' by me quoting statistics from the Education Department about the lack of black male teachers in our Nation's schools, I was not given the promotion, and I never said I faced discrimination on my race, sex, gender, or any other 'protected' characteristic.

Had a heated disagreement w/2 co-workers that resulted in my leaving that location abrubtly and going to work at another location with our manager's knowledge and approval.However, those 2 co-workers have now filed a formal complaint against me with HR. My senior operations manager "interviewed" me about the incident and said he saw no reason for any disciplinary action towards me. In the meantime, I have been seperated from the rest of the team and informed I will be placed in another department as soon. I am new to this organization and to this team. Have only been here 2 mos and was told when hired that I was being put into a very difficult situation that was trying to be "fixed". My question is: Do I or should I get legal representation for this complaint against me?

I am an employer of a small business in CT. My question is,

I am an employer of a small business in CT. My question is, if I have an employee who is constantly tardy, absent, medically ill, or hospitalized, or taking time off for court dates. Constantly has excuses. They have used all their "PTO" (paid time off) and sick days. Now we get a "text" that they are in the hospital and may need surgery, where they may be out of work for 1-2 months with lifting restrictions when they come back.We are a small Veterinary Hospital with two technicians and one doctor. Now we are down to one technician. Not enough technicians to operate a hospital. What are my rights as a small business employer as far as letting her go, or fillilng her job, etc.

I need clarification of this clause in my current Employee

I need clarification of this clause in my current Employee Agreement, which I signed Oct. 2014. Is the 90 days notice enforceable? What if I give only provide a two-week notice and accept an offer from another company (non-competitive with current employer)? My prospective employer knows I currently work this company (same industry) and requires a copy of my EA before hire. Can I accept new company's offer by end of this week? I am in sales. I live in Dallas county, TX.ARTICLE IITERM OF CONTRACTSection 1.

I work large company. I was given information about work

I work for a large company. I was given information about work schedules that was different from what I always understood the policy to be. I sent an email to HR because my supervisor had given me this conflicting info. The HR rep asked me who my supervisor was and I explained that I didn't want to give out that info that is why I was asking them. She then forwarded the entire conversation to my manager, who contacted me regarding the issue. The HR rep made it look like I was avoiding the question of who my supervisor was. I believe this is not suppose to happen and I am very upset at the treatment I have been receiving. I am 24 weeks pregnant and have been having issues since the beginning of my pregnancy. Also the comp sent out and email that they will be laying off 50 employees from my dept and I have a feeling I am a huge target. Thanks for you time.

I was just terminated from my job (of 4 years) today. I feel that I have been targeted, and bullied out of employment. I have been accused of inappropriate behavior towards the staff as well as the resident. I have been accused of poor and unsatisfactory performance and attendance issues. As a result I have suffered loss of wages along with emotional and mental anguish. I would like to consult with someone to discuss these issues further in depth and to understand and excersize my rights. Thank you.

I am a commercial pilot employed since Jan 2016 by a small

Hello,I am a commercial pilot employed since Jan 2016 by a small charter jet operator based in Atlanta. When hired it was discussed and agreed upon my duty flight duty would be 6 days on, 6 days off as salaried flight crew.Recently there has been some scheduled service added. To my surprise my schedule for July shows me having 6 days off all month, with no increase in compensation. When questioned my answer was simply " well the rules have changed now".Further complicating things, my wife works part time and her employer allowed her to work on my 6 days home while I watched our two year old Son. Now not only am I working more with no compensation my wife's income has been affected as well, with resultant financial impact.Can anything be done about this?Thanks Much, Kurt Rose
