My husband was employed by a company in Michigan to be the

Hello, My husband was employed by a company in Michigan to be the Operations Manager for their business. The employment agreement with them had included them paying for 3 months of Cobra Insurance for us which they did not do. They also agreed to pay our moving expenses, I had a company all set up that was bonded and insured. One week before we were scheduled to move they tried to change what they had agreed upon and said they would load our things on one of their trucks because it would be cheaper. This ended up being a very upsetting thing for my husband and I along with some other things said by them in a very nasty email and my husband ended up tendering his resignation. We then got a call from my Husband's Boss to come and meet with him to discuss things and possibly come back. He told my Husband that it was up to him is he wanted to stay on as operations Manager or he could chose to go back to being a Remote Designer as he was previously for them. We told him in the meeting that we expected them to pay for the Cobra for 3 months as they has promised, also pay for my son and I Medications that cost us over $300 because they had not paid our Cobra, as well as a late fee on our rent as they were to pay two months of rent for my Husband to be in Michigan before the rest of us. We also said that my husband would not release any design work for them until those items were paid. That was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Meanwhile my husband has been doing design work from home for them. Yesterday he called the owner of the Company because they had still not paid any of the agreed upon items. This morning my husband got a email from them stating that they accept his previous resignation and will not pay the Cobra or the late fee, nor his last 1 1/2 weeks of work. Just to be clear, my husband had agreed he would be a remote designer for them after our meeting with his boss 1 1/2 weeks ago. What kind of rights do we have in this instance?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: Michigan.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full time design from home for my husband.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: We also signed a lease for a place in Michigan because we would have had to move for him to be the Operations Manager, it is now going to cost us 2 full months of rent and over $3000 besides that to break our rental agreement as well. I guess that's it. Thank you, Tara

I have been doing grant writing as a volunteer for a dog

I have been doing grant writing as a volunteer for a dog rescue. Last week received an email from founder stating she was delighted that I still wanted to continue when she and board members were aware that I had stopped submitting grants. How this email share that she has a volunteer professional grant writer that is writing grants for them, I was not aware of this and not sure the other volunteer is either. But we could have been applying for the same grants. Does this set me up for fraud or falsifying the documents or grant applications? And would this be kind of double dipping for this organization? I second question is I have worked extremely hard at this hours etc. and was very hurt by the email and in know that this organization fabricates stories o their Facebook trying to get more donations and post same dogs with different story on occasions I was hurt and upset and didn't think this through and sent an email to my friends that have donated to them but included a few adopter I sent that way and two of their supporters. Some one sent to her and she cut and pasted on a email to meWe hope you realize how libelous this email is and what the legal ramifications are. We will be speaking with our attorneys on Monday to decide how to proceed.Depending on the results of our investigation, if we see an immediate retraction and all slander and libel ceases immediately' we will consider dropping the matter. And last what type lawyer will I need, I have not post anything Public and was just very hurt of what she did and how hard I worked for them. All Board member knew how hard and that I was still writing grants. I do not know if Board was aware that she had two people how doing this.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I am in Oregon and the rescue organization is in CaloforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: This just has taken place and they were seeing their attorney on Monday.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no I don't think so.

Regarding an expense report: My CFO states: "One other item

Regarding an expense report:My CFO states: "One other item was that you expensed USD 1041,36 for a flight which was paid for with USD 51.36 in cash and 99000 miles. I expect these miles are accrued for with flying on a corporate assignment so I guess BB should not be paying you for using the miles. Can you please clarify if you see it differently."Is this even legal to state this?

I live in Ohio. I sell insurance. The group I am affiliated

I live in Ohio. I sell insurance. The group I am affiliated with is threatening to terminate me for cause. I feel it is wrongful termination. They have pretty well made up their mind. I am trying to negotiate a not for cause termination.The training manual lists some fraudulent acts in writing they actually encourage agents to do. Is it blackmail or extortion, or do I risk breaking the law if I politely tell them if this goes before the ODI (Ohio Dept of Insurance) I will be forced to take out the training manual, and that maybe it is best if they just terminate me not for cause and we all walk away as friends? If I do that, is that a CRIMINAL action on my part – ie., blackmail, extortion.

I gave my notice to my practice in 2012 (3 weeks) and left

I gave my notice to my practice in 2012 (3 weeks) and left to teach full time. I returned to practice in 2014 full time (Same practice). There are some unethical practices going on that I am not comfortable with and I gave my 3 week notice this week and have accepted another position already. I am being told that I have to give 60 days notice. I did not sign a contract when I returned in 2014. During 2012-2014 - I worked per diem for the office -generally 1 day per week and extra in the summer. I am a nurse practitioner. I am now being pressured and threatened that if I don't stay 60-90 days, they will cancel my insurance contracts and I will never practice again. This is coming from the office manager and my supervising physician. I have no where to turn in the office for help. I work more hours and see more patients than the 3 other providers, so I think they are just scared their financial situation will be worse. I am afraid they will come after me legally and am prepared to fight back with exposing their unethical activities if needed. I don't want to do this, I just want them to know I can so they will back away from me. I am physically sick from the stress of the past 3 days. I just wanted some advice to see if I am worrying for nothing. My goal is to finish out my time respectfully ***** ***** I am a hard worker and I don't want to change now.

I am an employer I recently filed an appeal against one of

I am an employer I recently filed an appeal against one of my ex employees since the EDD has decided to pay him even though he quit. This is after they sent me a letter ruling that he never quit nor was fired and that my account would still be charged. In the appeal process the judge decided that I had a right to appeal after the fact and late because EDD paperwork was misleading. Also said that my account should still be charged even though the employee filed and extension when he had a job somewhere else and was claiming he works for me although the last time he worked for me was in July of 2016 the claim says January 2017. I am trying to understand why they feel that they can still charge my employer account and pay this guy even though he was fraudulently claiming unemployment when he had a job and I have to pay for it still. I am in California so I hope this doesn't make it too much more difficult although I'm sure it will
