My daughter is 19 and was employed by a local summer camp.

My daughter is 19 and was employed by a local summer camp. They claim that they are legally able to pay her and the rest of their employees as independent contractors through Dec 2016 because they are a nonprofit. My daughter was just fired yesterday but has been asking for copies of her timesheet for the last few weeks. We were just told that she would get her final paycheck but they had turned over all the timesheets to an auditor and then an attorney to make sure they are all ok before we get them. Is that legal?

I am employee who has resigned from my company in Florida

I am employee who has resigned from my company in Florida and my last day is 7/22. Back in March I was given an advancement to attend a conference which I can not attend now.I agree that I owe the company a debt, and I'm trying to work out a payment plan with them that is reasonable and will not leave me without money until I start my new job.They want to take out money of my last 2 paychecks for the amount of $1,726.00. That is over what I make and it would leave me without money to pay my bills on time or eat, etc.I want to know what my rights are as to legally what they can do to me. I have asked them several times in writing to work with me and why I can't afford to pay it back before I leave the company.

I work in state, my employers are in Utah, and we have a

I work in Washington state, my employers are in Utah, and we have a business license to run our branch in Washington. My office is being cut from the company I've worked for for a while. And my team members are being told they are being given severance. No paperwork, just a final paycheck direct from company. The question is that without that paperwork, my employers are thinking that the employees are still required to give them some work within reason during the amount of time for the lump sum they are receiving, is this something they can demand without a contract asking for reasonable assistance?
