I have worked for an employer for 14 years, all was wonderful... This is a small busiess and he has now had a new company come in and change all the work hours and are litterally harressing us old employees, by cutting our hours and making us take our PTO for the cut hours. My hours are constantly cut to 32 per week some times even less, in spite of much work that still needs to be done. For example we are more than a month behind in our charting on patients which should be completed within 3 days of the patient's appointment. She hired a friend to cover the hours that she cuts us. Is there any thing we can do. ????JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

My former Employer has emailed on a few occasions and the

My former Employer has emailed on a few occasions and the content has been disturbing, the most recent email was sent to me, copied to my current employer and I believe employees in my former office saws this as well. It had accusatory tone and innuendo..JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Virginia.. I don't know if I need Employment or Libel LawyerJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No nothing, can you look at what he sent? We represent the same Company and I am worried that my 32 year reputation has been tarnished and may hinder chances of employment in the futureJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Debbie,I received your email asking me to forward the rest of xx and xx policies to xx agency. I was unaware that all policies had not previously been transferred and will do so immediately. As you are aware, I have been disappointed with the number of policyholders who have transferred from my agency to your agency. I anticipated family members and a few immediately after your employment with xx. This has gone on long enough. I am disappointed with this transfer as I have done all possible to assist xx and xx with their insurance. I spoke with xx the week previous to xx accident and assisted her with a payment situation. Therefore, I was really caught off guard when I received the email she had contacted the company to transfer their accounts. xx gets injured on Sunday and she thinks to transfer their accounts on Tuesday while her husband is in critical condition. I called xx when I received the email as I was unaware of xx condition. She had previously told me of situations in their household and I thought we had a good professional relationship. xx explained she thought highly of me but considered you as family. I told her I have no hard feelings toward her and xx and wish them the best which is the case. While she was mentioning the situation to me, I was planning to discuss the possibility of a disability waiver related to xx policy. When I mentioned this, she said you had already discussed this with her. She also said she knows I am out of my office a lot which was a factor in her decision. I do not know where she got this idea.Obviously , xx and xx can choose any agent they desire and I certainly saw no reason to discuss anything additional as everyone needs to be concerned with xx health. All the rest of this is trivial in the big picture.Ed
