I am a 69 year-old male working as a driver for a firm with large Federal contracts. I must have several fairly routine eye surgeries in the next few months, and this will not be qualified to drive in a commercial setting.Does the time when I will be wearing an eye patch constitute a disability? (A few weeks or so.)If I cannot drive, is my employer obligated to find another position for me during my period of incapacity?

I'm salaried non-exempt and my employer expects extra hours

I'm salaried non-exempt and my employer expects extra hours to be worked each pay period unpaid for free. Our old time timekeeping system allowed the "free" hours to be recorded. We were told all hours must be recorded for these federal contracts that we work on or we were in violation of federal law. My employer has now changed our timekeeping system to no longer allow these extra hours to be recorded. We are expected to these work extra hours and our employer has even ratcheted up the demands for even more free hours, but now just give us official direction to "record our hours accurately" knowig full well there is no way to do so, leaving us as either the law breakers if it would ever be subject to investigation or subject to firing for non-performance if we only work our paid hours and don't complete our assignments. What recoursce do I have?

I am an exempt employee of a consulting firm (Sr. Project Manager)

I am an exempt employee of a consulting firm (Sr. Project Manager) that called in sick on Friday 9/25 at 8 am per company policy. I am a minority employee employed by a minority firm. I have been significantly harnessed over the past 6-8 months. This was my 1st call in sick day since employment beginning 6/2014. Sick time is handled through what is called "PTO" (personal time off). The firm is a small business with federal contracts in NJ with approximately 30-45 employees.The owner later called my personal cell phone before 9 am and left a message stating that if I did not complete an assignment "allegedly" due on this date, I could consider myself on unpaid furlough for 2 weeks. I am currently on the 2nd week of unpaid leave. Does ADA (or any agency) provide protection against this type of harassment?

I am working as a 1099 contractor company which is doing

I am working as a 1099 contractor for a company which is doing Medicare assessments. They agreed verbally and in writing to pay me a rate per patient I assess, and to pay me a per diem of $125 a day OR to pay my hotel bill. I elected to get the per diem.This company has not paid another contractor, and this has caused me some concern. I got an email from two managers asking for a copy of my hotel bill. I am not supplying it, and have written a request for clarification of the agreed upon per diem. The company has a practice of not paying their contractors, it is rumored. So, I am getting nervous.What else can I do to make sure they honor the per diem agreement and pay me on time? They have a Federal contract and I wonder if I can report them to the Federal labor board if they fail to pay me?
