BEST COURSE OF ACTION? Please assume that the following

BEST COURSE OF ACTION? Please assume that the following items are 100% truthful and correct.My son was hired as a supervisor for a hospital 2 years agoI know for a fact that he works at his job 125% and gives his all to the positionHe is not given enough time to do all the things that are being placed on his plateHe can handle any situation that arises with no problem, however, with the extreme amount of "Drama" of the 30 women under him his time available is not enough to handle everything.The hospital hired an observer that was with him for 5 weeks. This person HAD to realize that my son is giving WAY above and beyond what a normal employee would give.For whatever reason, the powers to be have decided to eliminate his position and create two new positions to do the job. Both of these positions would dramatically reduce his income to an unacceptable level. They have not even offered those 2 positions to him.I used to own a company in my city and found that it is near impossible to find an employee that really wants to work, regardless of salary given. This organization MUST realize that my son is literally a very unusual and sought after employee due to him giving his all 24/7.They have terminated him in one week and offered him one month severance pay.This is a ROYAL DISASTER for my son because of several reasons. Please offer your blunt advice on the best course of action he should take. There is no other facility even close to us that he could work for. Unless something is found to save him he will literally lose the home and small farm that he has just purchased 2 years ago. Plus, he just got married one month ago and now has a wife and children. He is a U.S. Marine not on active duty now. He does not deserve the situation he has been put into through NO fault of his own. He has done FAR FAR more than any other person would have done in the same position.Kindly offer your advice on any and all options he might have available to him. Note, unemployment would not do much to save him and the results would be the same. I am praying that you have some "lightning bolt" idea that will help him out.

On 10-17-16 my employer presented me a Notice of Separation,

On 10-17-16 my employer presented me a Notice of Separation, stating that it's in compliance with CUIC 1089, of being laid off. A final paycheck, short of 8 hours was included and I was advised I will be issued a separate check in the future. II also received 6 page Separation Agreement and Release with a severance amount of $7000.00 to be paid upon my signature and receipt within 21 days. My reason for seeking professional opinion upon signing is due to the severance amount is the amount billed to my employer since 2015 for back unpaid hours worked. I feel that I should not have to sign a form for money that is owed to me and am seeking a consultation for advise. I am more than willing to pay for a consultation and for a labor termination attorney to review the separation agreement and release documents for me. Thank you in advance Best Regards, ***** ***** Testa, (area 91607)

I received my final paycheck from my employer and it did not include my paid two weeks vacation. Can I cash this check although he has put final payment in the memo section? He also made a verbal agreement that he would pay my medical expenses of 16,000.00 and he only paid 3500.00 which has been sent to collection. What can I do legally?

Are there any rules in California for giving loans and

Hello,Are there any rules in California for giving loans and collecting payments to employees of a private company? We're in the process of giving a small loan to an employee but I keep finding articles online about repayment methods, certain compliance I need to follow, etc.For example, NY apparently has laws that restrict certain kind of payments through wage reduction (http://nysbar.com/blogs/EASL/2015/02/three_things_to_consider_befor_1.html). I'm not sure what CA requires.

One of my employees passed away and we are in the

Hello,One of my employees passed away and we are in the process of cutting his final paycheck that will go into his direct deposit bank account. However, his 401k information is a bit iffy because I don't really know how to handle that. What legal document is there that I can request from the deceased's family that will essentially allow me to process the employee's 401k and allow them to basically "take over" the account and/or funds? I'm not sure what exactly that is called, and the employee's family/friends aren't exactly in a position to go and see an expensive attorney to get this information themselves.

I am writing this on behalf of my Brother-in-law who is an

I am writing this on behalf of my Brother-in-law who is an upstanding Truck driver for over 21 years. He has never had a ticket or any violations. He was driving during a major snowstorm a few months ago and got stuck and could not get out as much as he tried. The plows kept going by him and it only made things worse. He contacted his boss and he said that he should get it towed. And he waited about 30 hours and they finally got him out. All was well. The situation is he found a new job that paid 6 cents a mile more and also full benefits so he gave his 2 weeks notice. He got his final paycheck from the company and it was almost $1000.00 less. They said he put "personal expenses" on the company credit card. One of the purchases was for towing. That charge was around $750.00. My question is, is that legal? I hate to have to see him take it to court because it would cost more to hire a lawyer? any advice from experienced drivers? Thank you.
