I am a branch manager for a mortgage company. I have 2

I am a branch manager for a mortgage company. I have 2 separate contract one as a branch manager and the other one a Loan Officer. I have been getting my salary which gets added to my P&L and I am also to get paid 35% of the net profit on each closed loan and the other 65% goes back to the P&L. I have only been with this company for 4 months and I have 10 employees that work under me. My P&L is a negative because it just takes about 6 months to get back to a positive number. My company decided to not pay me my salary for the pay period of Dec 1St. They have always paid my salary before even when my P&L was more negative than it is now. So I told them if you are not going to pay me for my salary then you have to pay me for my closed loan that was due to be paid on the Dec 1st check. They still did not pay me anything and they keep saying because my P&L is still negative. I have closed over 8 loans since coming on board and I have never received one Commission check and I am afraid they aren't going to pay me on the 16th pay period.

Benefits - Went part time to attend graduate school in 2/16.

Benefits - Went part time to attend graduate school in 2/16. Employer continued to make deductions fro my paycheck to pay for supplemental insurance beyond standard health coverage, electives I had selected prior to going part time. In early 11/16 I received an email from the HR department that I was enrolled in these extra riders, but was ineligible, however they stated that they would keep me on them until 1/17. Later in 11/16 I suffered a heart attack while traveling for work and have been off work since that time. I blame the attack on the high stress and toxic environment that is work. I also am getting the run around about what insurance covers me, so not sure what to do next?? HR gives me a different answer each time (including the overall director).JA: Not for this question, but they might if you need additional services. You'll have to ask the Lawyer about that. Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MIJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Nope. No short term (they have said that I am both eligible and ineligible), nothing for FMLA and no long term. Workers comp is being held off on until I see what the cardiologist says contributed the most to the heart attack.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't believe so.

Hello, I was just notified by letter last week that my job title of director has been changed to manager. Having a manager title now does not allow me to receive my bonus in march that I worked all year for. I feel that I have been demoted even though they call it reclassified. I am the only director that has been reclassified. I have never been wrote up and all my performance reviews have been great. I have one of the best run departments. I feel so humiliated.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TennesseeJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At will and full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I feel like I have been singled out because I have complained to senior management and health and wellness director about resident neglect.
