Recent Embezzlement questions

Recently my Chief has begun writing ME up and threatening

Recently my Chief has begun writing ME up and threatening termination for mistakes he makes but then blames me and now is making a "false" document trail to cover his ass.Going above his head to the city counsel to complain will not help. (Anyone who has ever complained to them before is GONE. (I work in a corrupt system... the boss was caught embezzling cash (over 5 grand) and stealing 10s of thousands of equipment. But after a few "closed to the public" meetings between him and city hire-ups, all the charges, etc. "disappeared", etc. and he is still there (and continues to steal, etc.) (I still have copies of the Police warrants though).Additionally some of the other employees have started their own logs of his misdeeds and will eventually lower the boom on him and the hire-ups. However, in the meantime, my job and livelihood are in jeopardy.What are my options here?

My question is I am a subcontractor hired by someone and

Good day,My question is I am a subcontractor hired by someone and they pay me on a daily basis as to when I show up to work. I am wondering if I do work on the side being that I'm not directly an employee for that company is that considered embezzlement or do I still fall under the contractor nomenclature and am able to do work whenever and wherever I want through my own company?

I was recently terminated a retail job bc I was unknowingly

I was recently terminated a retail job bc I was unknowingly using promotion codes/coupons that were not valid. Our POS system accepted the codes and no manual overrides were needed. My wages were garnished to recover the monies. However, a month later, the employer is now demanding that I pay them the same amount ($644) again and if I don't they will charge me with embezzlement. At termination, I signed a document stating that they would recover the money from my commissions, which they did. What should I do?

I had been with my employer for almost 2 years, in that time

I had been with my employer for almost 2 years, in that time I have used my company business cards for a plethora of reasons. To of course purchase items for the company, in addition I have withdrawn cash to reimburse myself for paying his employees when he neglected to pay them on time. In addition on several occasions I have withdrawn cash for a varity of reasons and returned the funds usually when the bank opened the following business day. Not once has the owner in two years expressed that he didn't want me to use my business card for personal transactionstatement. I withdrew $205 dollars for personal use and returned the money the following monday when the bank opened in full. He now has terminated me for embezzlement and I'm in jeopardy of losing my accountability in a 29yr career. Can he do this if I very been using these practices since my employment without notification of any kind not to?...scared!JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OregonJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: YesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I'm an onsite Manager and have been given a week to move, and I'm looking for employment elsewhere and afraid his reference will destroy my chances of employment

I am going through a lot of things from my employer. On

Hi, I am going through a lot of things from my employer. On December 28th I sent my boss a message asking when I was going to get paid he hasn't paid me a whole month because the company was going through a rough time and still because his current partner is accusing him of embezzlement which my ex boss still does not know that he's being under investigation. I have been helping the partner to uncover things that I found out but now don't know what to do since my ex boss is sending me an email asking for missing things from the office. I need advice on this.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TxJA: 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: No
