I have taught and trained all other programmers that got hired after me and wrote documents that show step by step how to do our more difficult tasks. It was done to help us and any future programmers and sharing the knowledge. They are trying to get me to sign a severance agreement and release by Monday and offering 6 weeks pay if I waive my rights to any claim or action.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Maryland and no I'm reaching out to find out what I can do if anything.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that's it

We are a Federal health care center. I was scheduled for the following day and was told I could work that or not, I chose not to and did receive pay for that day although I have notcashed the check or signed their paperwork.Here's my question:When was the Clinic advised of this regulationWhy wasn't I told in advance so I could start studying or plan my budget correctlyWhy has the other PT NP still working there despite not having finished his Masters and not being Board Certified?I have worked an average of 40-60 hours amount consistently since I retired from FT.We receive notices from Credentialing Dept when our licenses are getting within 3 months of expiring ( I recently did) and they notified meWe have had many personnel changes in the HR dept and a new Credentialling personI was the oldest employee there.

I live in Phoenix, AZ. I was terminated this past Thursday

I live in Phoenix, AZ.I was terminated this past Thursday by my supervisor. His reasoning was 'differences in management philosophies'. I was written up once for not following his direction but never for anything else. All performance reviews were 'achieve expectations'.Do I have a right to go after compensation for wrongful termination? Clearly there is more to story but overall need to understand my options. When I say more the environment he was creating was very hostile and vendictive.

I'm a County Employee in CA overseeing a county psychiatric

I'm a County Employee in CA overseeing a county psychiatric hospital in a non Union, management position. I have been employed there for 2.5 years. Administration has come to me and said they are re-certifying the facility and that they need me to go on the facility as the Head of Service on the state certification and put my professional license (marriage and family therapist license) on the facility. They said there will be no additional compensation for this at this time. Under my job description, this is not cited as a requirement. Can you tell me as an employee in CA, am I required to put my license on their facility? I want to decline as I'm not comfortable having their facility under my license but I'm encountering some push back. Thank you for your assistance.

I filed with division of human rights against employer for

I filed with division of human rights against employer for racial discrimination. The Division determined that probable cause was found. The respondents (employer) is now requesting to the division of human rights to reopen of the proceeding, pursuant to Rule 20 of the Rules of Practice of the Division (9 N.Y.C.R.R 465.20 (b)), in order to vacate the probable cause. The respondents are asking the division to review the investigation of the case and change its determination. I have 15 days to send in a RESPONSE. I am opposed to the respondents request and want the original determination to sustain however, I don't have the legal background to put this in writing. I am not asking to dismiss the request because if that is filed then it is saying that I am withdrawing my allegations and case will be closed. I just want a template on what to say to indicate that I am opposed to their request and for their request to be denied and sustain the original determination which is probable cause. Can you assist with this?
