We are a NJ small employer and provide our employees with six (6) paid sick days per year. Employees earn 1/2 sick day per month and we have an employee who has already used up all of his sick pay. This employee is an exempt employee and therefore we cannot pay him for days he calls out. Despite the fact that all employees are aware of the sick pay policy this individual employee has abused the policy. What if any recourse do we have to discipline this employee?Since he has abused the company's sick pay policy is that cause for termination?

I notified my employer that my husband had been transferred

I notified my employer that my husband had been transferred to another location in December, and let my supervisor know that as soon as my house sold that I would be leaving my job, but that it could be several months, but that I would keep her in the loop and let her know as soon as I knew when I would need to give notice, believe me I regret that decision. Last Friday my supervisor asked me for a letter of intent, stating that I would give her six weeks notice. She also mentioned that since I have 2 weeks vacation scheduled at the end of September that I only have 6 days vacation and she believed that I would go on vacation and not return to work. I honestly have no idea why she would assume such a thing. I just need to know if I will loose my job if I don't write the letter of intent.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Flordia, I live in Georgia, but my work place is in FlordiaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I'm a full time employee but I am not sure if PepsiCo is an at will employerJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Not at this time

Instead she never gave me feedback even after I've asked her for it. The only time she gave me performance feedback was when she fired me. I've been working there for a year.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Do you mean have I reported it?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't know what my rights are in this situation.

Hi. I was hired at Petsmart last December after submitting a background check. On May 24, they suspended me without pay and told me to fax my parole stipulations to the HR Department. On May 26, they terminated me and didn't give me a reason in writing. When I called the HR Department, they told me that the reason was Violation of Policy.JA: Since parole regulations vary, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New YorkJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I reported the same information to Orange County Department of Labor, Human Resource Department, but haven't heard back yet.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My charge was a sex crime. I feel that someone didn't like it and made a stink about it. If Petsmart hired me after knowing my background, why did they terminate me for violating their policy if they approved my background and offered me a job?
