I am employed with the social security administration. I am currently on leave without pay due to several medical issues. I have been off work since 09/27/16 and just received notice on 12/29/16 that my FMLA had been approved dating back to 09/27/16. I requested Reasonable Accommodation on 10/26/16 and as of 01/03/17 have not been given a decision. I filed an EEO complaint on 01/03/17. My EEO counselor notified me that she was awaiting an answer from management about participating in an Alternative Dispute Resolution on 01/11/17. I have not received any feedback at this date. What do I do?

Our companies Human Resource personnel has changed, altered

Our companies Human Resource personnel has changed, altered and falsified my attendance point accumulation by recording more points than actual, with that being said. Instead of having 3 points I now have 5 which gave me a day suspension. Now that I've lost pay, I also can no longer regain my points back. Which moves me closer to termination. Our HR has altered our point system by falsifying employee documentsJA: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?Customer: I have not discussed this issue with HR yet, I am currently speaking these matter along with my options with our union repsJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: not quite sure yet.

I just received a letter from a lawyer stating I was in

I just received a letter from a lawyer stating I was in violation of a non-compete agreement with my former employer. I looked at the agreement and it appears, from how I am reading it, that I am not in violation. The letter the lawyer sent seemed to attempt to fill in a lot of gaps that were not specifically identified in my non-compete. Also, my employer did not sign my non-compete agreement, only i did. They are saying that I need to cease working for their former client immediately. Do I have to do to do this or can I get a lawyer and fight it?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ArizonaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: full time- i am not sure what "at will" means.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: yes, I was not given a financial incentive to sign the document, we all signed it because I thought I had to.

I work for an Indian casino as a waiter. Last year they

Good afternoon. I work for an Indian casino as a waiter. Last year they created a corporate trainer position. My hourly went from $3.13 per hour to $7.25 per hour. My managers told me that they are keeping the position but getting rid of the $7.25 per hour and reducing it down to $3.13 per hour. However I have a signed performance review that states I am supposed to be paid $7.47 for the year of 2017. My workplace didn't have me sign anything telling me that my pay is to go down. I understand the issue of sovereign immunity but would the case of C & L Enterprises v. Citizen Band, Potawatomi Tribe Of Oklahoma apply in this situation?
