A friend of mine was issued a "subpeona in an investigation"
A friend of mine was issued a "subpeona for evidence in an investigation" of a former employer. It specifically states that "you are not personally implicated in or suspected of any potential violation".The subpeona simply asks for a return call to the assistant AG by 8-Jul. Should she retain an attorney? And can she contact the team at the former employer in question?
I was being interviewed by a Salon owner here in Lynchburg
I was being interviewed by a Salon owner here in Lynchburg Virginia who told me that if for any reason I left that Salon I would not be able to work in another Salon or do hair within a 30 mile radius because they will have me sign a non compete stating as such. I have heard that Virginia is an "at wil employment state" and that they could never take me to court over that. Is that true?

My 27 yr old niece was charged with a DUI in november
Hello,My 27 yr old niece was charged with a DUI in november 15...... she had a court date june 2016.She had legal representation and knew the out one before court date. Punishment was monitor and house arrest for 6 months . She spoke with her director, told her she would have a monitor and stated to Director she would wear long pants to work. Niece works in preshool daycare 3/5 yr olds. Has been doing it for 7 plus years. Does not transport any child. Has clean clearances and this charge did not affect.Director put her on admin leave w/out pay until investigation was complete. Niece did not have to be forthcoming with incident as it was on personal time. Niece is forthright with Director and today after 2 weeks of fake investigation (as niece provided legal docs as requested) she was terminated. I believe she is an at will employee but isn't this a bit of a reach. Thank you

I was just involved in an "investigation" at work that was
Hello- I was just involved in an "investigation" at work that was initiated by a former employee of mine that claims she worked in an uncomfortable environment. I was questioned extensively yesterday by HR and my answers were truthful. This employee is known for creating entrapping situations and creating drama at the workplace. In fact, she once told me that she has "gotten rid of" other managers she didn't like. I was also warned by several managers to "watch out for her". I feel my job is in jeopardy even though I feel I did nothing wrong. What would you recommend my next steps to be to avoid termination?
I was working behavioral healthcare as a chemical dependencyView more employment law questions
I was working for PRISM behavioral healthcare as a chemical dependency counselor. This company had me working between 45 and 60 hours a week but would adjust my time sheet to only show 40 hours. This went on continuously until I could no longer take it and had to quit my employment. I signed up for unemployment which it has not been accepted or rejected at this time. Do I have a case?
