Ely, I have been a paralegal years. I worked with a small

Hi Ely, I have been a paralegal for 19 years. I worked with a small firm for 4 years, which was bought out by a huge nationwide firm My billable requirement prior to the buy out was 100 hours per month. The national firm changed all of our computer, data management software, etc. and expected our paralegals to bill 133 hours per month. None of the 4 that we have had in this last year have reached that goal. I was threatened to be fired in May 2016, as my hours were 105, in June I billed 118. It wasn't good enough and they fired me. Looking at eligibility for unemployment, I'm wondering how I present this to be able to qualify. I'd appreciate any guidance you could give me. Thank you!

I have been employed with my company 11 years. I've had no

I have been employed with my company for over 11 years. I've had no disciplinary actions or difficulties prior to the last couple of months. My supervisor tells me there are "complaints" about my "communications skills" and that I am "borderline inappropriate". I've worked as a health care professional for over twenty years (I am an RN), and have held management positions and interacted with patients and families throughout that time, without a problem. She won't tell me who has complained or what has occurred but instead says "it's their perception and since they've never complained about anyone else, it must be true". Today I was given a written verbal warning and she said "Is it really worth it?". I have always followed the rules and have never hesitated to tell a superior if something was outside my ethics. In the midst of all this, I was asked to do something against federal regulations, which I refused to do. When that same supervisor refused to take no for an answer, i filed a "whistle blower" report with my Compliance Officer. He investigated, and someone at our corporate level intervened and redirected the activity into regulatory compliance. No matter what I've said or asked in my last two meetings with this supervisor, I come out of it feeling threatened professionally. I know she wants me to quit, and that would be the easy way to walk away with some professional dignity. Do I have other options?

If I accept a new sales position based in California, my

If I accept a new sales position based in California, my employer wants me to sign a 1 year "non compete" agreement, with "Choice of Law and Forum" clauses/agreement tied to the state of New Hampshire laws. Since I will be an "At Will" employee, if for any reason I leave or am terminated, can this agreement be enforced if I were to go to another competitor in California?

hello, i am an american airlines employee, and have a dispute with TSA during their check at LAX . i had some choice words because i was late for my sign in to the trip, however, i completely complied asked for the TSA officers name and they were not happy that i asked this ,I needed their names because i was late and needed to have evidence of this situation. eventually received a letter to my company re: this situation, in which they said i used inappropriate language towards them. this is false, and now i have a letter asking my side of the story and can come up against a "fine" from the TSA. my Union, is stating that i should be remorseful to this, however if i do this , i look guilty and will be charged the fine. i want to just state the facts of the incident as it was caught on tape, but not recorded. the officers were challenged and they did not like this at all. paying a fine admits guilt and i need to know if this is a case i can pursue.

Recently, I've had a few verbal confrontations with my

Hello,Recently, I've had a few verbal confrontations with my direct supervisor. As a result my Director called me in to discuss. His plan was to write me up and start a Performance plan. I indicated to him that I realized there was a personality difference and that I was going to seek new employment, I then asked him to give me a few months. Now less than a few days since then have passed with no incidents. My director has now indicated that performance reviews are due and that he will give me a negative one which would harm future employment prospects. I countered him to say I thought we had an agreement that I would look for new employment. I've never been in this position and feel as if I'm being pressured to quit on the spot. What should I do?

In North Carolina is it legal to record a conversation

I forgot to turn if off and a half an hour later recorded a critical conversation that can dispute something that was said, without realizing it. Can it be used?
