A recruiter, someone who presents themselves to the public

A recruiter, someone who presents themselves to the public as an entity that matches talent with the needs of an employer, normally collects a fee based on the first-year's salary when a candidate is placed. If they place someone as an independent contractor and collects their fee based on the worker's labor, it seems they are taking on the character of a staffing agency. Is this correct?

I have been working for this company for three years and in

Hello, I have been working for this company for three years and in this time they have changed my job description several times. I was hired as a nurse on the floor to pass meds. Then I was promoted to a case management position. While I was in case management I was still asked to help passing meds in nursing. After a while the demand of two positions got to be too much. I was told by her that I would now be staying in case management and do nursing in emergencies only. I would help periodically as needed a couple times a month. I recently got a new supervisor and she has decided to place me back full time in nursing. She feels case management is more of a social workers job. In a way it's a if I have been demoted. Today I was given a new schedule and new hours and told that I would be doing nursing now again full time and case management too as needed. I took vacation last week and came back to my position being changed again. I have been having panick attacks and crying at work. My blood pressure is now up and it's hard to cope with all of the new changes day by day. Can my employer keep making changes? I have nothing in writing from them. I have an apt with my doctor tomorrow to see if I can go on stress leave. This job has drained me and left me so nervous. I have lost weight and I can't sleep at night. How do I go on paid stress leave?

We run a summer camp in California and hire summer only

We run a summer camp in California and hire summer only employees as part of camp.One of our summer only employees has filed for unemployment insurance. I have several questions:1) If the person had finished their contract through the entire summer, would they be eligible for unemployment even though it was a limited part time/seasonal contract?2) If this person requested to leave due to taking care of a sick pet and left 3 days prior to the end of their contract, does that constitute resignation making him ineligible for unemployment?3) If we have a clause in their contract that states "I agree that this position with Camp Ramah in Northern California is seasonal in nature, and I will not be eligible for unemployment compensation." Is this legal/enforceable in the state of California?

I am currently disabled and am on disability for being

Hi, I am currently disabled and am on disability for being bipolar. My case came up for review after about 7 years of receiving benefits. I am now at the third and final stage of the review, having been denied by two case works as 'fit to work' and am now taking this to the judge. I understand that this is common, however, my mother is helping me purchase a house in the next month. If I loose my disability case and have to pay back the disability benefits I received while my case was being reviewed, could I have my home taken away from me?

California Family Leave Act for employees: Whose

California Family Leave Act for employees: Whose responsibility is it to determine if an employee is eligible a Short Term Disability plan/Family Leave (California)? The employer or employee? I have not worked for my employer for a full year OR 1200 hrs which I have been advised is required to qualify for the right to process a claim. My employer's administrator for their Short Term Disability Plan has suggested in a most recent letter that I & my primary physician failed to provide medical records when all along they are certainly aware of my beginning date of employment?!They tagged along with the very first paragraph these words"you will receive a communication regarding job protection for your leave of absence" as to suggest I failed to do ??? Is it not the obligation of the HR manager to inform the employee that since they do not qualify for right to file a claim for job protection w, X that ADA law/protection gives them the right to process a claim if they are 71, female & Native American?? We processed Cal EDD claim which was approved and the funds have been opened in a Bank of America account.I had hoped to return to work which was identified as 10/2/2016 but now they are suggesting I have no job protection.
