Runzheimer reimburses my company's employees based on a

Runzheimer reimburses my company's employees based on a fixed and miles driven. The fixed for me is $300/mo with miles being at $.15/mile. I drive about 2000 miles/month - $600 total per month. Co-worker gets $200/mo and drives 500 miles - $275/mo. When you look at reimbursement per mile - I get $.30/mile where co-worker gets $.54/mile. I spoke to my manager about this being unfair - do more get less program. There is nothing they can do. Is this legal? What should I do?

I recently filed a EEOC complaint against my employer. This

I recently filed a EEOC complaint against my employer. This was following receiving a disciplinary action for being out due to bipolar disorder, 5 days over 3 months. I believe I was punished for having my illness, this action makes my employment less secure. In addition, against my psychiatrist's advice, while we were changing meds around and I was very symptomatic, I felt like I had to get to work or I would lose my job. This was a dangerous decision, initiated by the disciplinary action, and I had an accident with my car when I hit a concrete barrier. Due to the continued pressure to be at work, I became more and more symptomatic, until now I can't work and I am receiving no income. The EEOC issued the determination that they were unable to conclude either way and gave me the right to sue. Should I pursue suing? I am leaning towards doing it because I don't want anyone else to be punished for having a protected disability .

I've worked at my organization (a non-profit in Leawood, KS)

I've worked at my organization (a non-profit in Leawood, KS) for almost 10 years. The past few years, one employee (a partner in another division with which I have worked closely) has become increasingly difficult to the point of verbally attacking people during meetings. I have seen a few of these outbursts, heard about countless others, and was finally the target of one a few months ago. After the encounter, I informed my supervisors of the incident and went to HR. HR talked to the other employee, who said she would apologize- but then never did (and continued to act erratically/unprofessionally). I decided to remove myself from the line of fire and excused myself from meetings where she was present (lest I be the target of one of her attacks again). I initially had the support of my supervisors in this, but now my boss's manager wants me to "give it another shot." The very thought of being in the same room as that woman makes my blood pressure skyrocket and gives me anxiety. I've never been treated that way in my 10 years here, nor have I had such a visceral reaction to the thought of working so closely with someone again. Normally I'm a "grin and bear it" type, but this different. I feel I should not have to deal with such an unstable employee with an HR record a mile long. I'm curious though, what actual legal grounds do I have to withdraw myself from a hostile work environment? And to demand my supervisor's support?

They were approved to clock in 15 minutes before their shift and we had employees clocking in up to 46 minutes before their shift taking advantage of the system. To the point one employee got paid 12.4 hours on a 11.5 hour shift because she clocked in 46 minutes before her shift.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: not sure of difference of "at will" or full time. but they are full time employees.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: nope
