I'm an employee of the Department of Veteran Affairs and my

I'm an employee of the Department of Veteran Affairs and my immediate supervisor and a contractor under his direct supervision are acting inappropriately. Durin ga meeting, he berated me for the better part of an hour for not doing her job and when she felt that he'd somehow gotten the better of me, she jumped up from her chair, high fived him and said, "Go on Sugar Bear!" I went through the VA's grievance process, but the narrative that my supervisor provided was all that they heard and never even addressed the relationship or what really happened in that conference room that day.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Washington, DCJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I'm a member of the Union and they handled my grievence.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The female contractor in question was caught (by me) straddling another male government employee in the stock room, and he sides with her on most issues because of THEIR relationship. I reported that incidence to my chain of command, but was basically told that my supervisor would be in charge of the "investigation".

My former employer just sent me a vile email, which i think

My former employer just sent me a vile email, which i think is in retaliation for not wanting to assist him with tax fraud. He indicated in the email that I "screwed" with his books, which I did not. We used QB - I quit without notice on December 7th because on December 5th, he received a notice from the IRS requesting an in-person audit of his 2014 taxes. i was not employed with him until October 2016. He told me to go into QB and add some of the "cash" customers to the 2014 QB file. Since I wasn't there that long, I didn't discover the additional fraud that he commits - misclassification of an employee. he pays a gentleman a check without withholding taxes and he does not 1099 at the end of the year. This man's books were a mess. Between the 2014 audit notice, learning that as of December 7th he hadn't even filed his 2015 taxes, and just seeing what a mess 2016 was gearing up to be, I left. I did not harm any of his records. Can he sue me? and honestly, why would he want to bring his fraudulent records into court?!JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MassachusettsJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: at will, no contract, I was put on payroll service vs. 1099 and I worked between 9-16 a weekJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no, I don't think so

Question regarding Massachusetts DUA: I claimed one last

question regarding Massachusetts DUA: I claimed one last payment during my first week of employment. I started working on 10/27 but did not get paid until 11/06 some two weeks later. Even though that my first pay check was for only one week I have since found out that I should not have filed that last claim. I now wonder what the consequences will be for my error.

Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. I am a

Good afternoon. Thank you for taking the time to answer my question. I am a retired teacher. 2 months ago, I submitted a form for a partial withdrawl from one of my TSA annuities (Athene Annuity and Life Comp, PO Box 305042, Nashville, TN###-##-####.I have spoken to several representatives there who tell me the request is being processed and it should only be a few more days. I have received this response for over a month. No one I speak to is able to tell me exactly how many days are needed to complete the process. When I ask to speak to someone "higher up", the response is leave your name and number, a representative will call you. I want to know what options I have to resolve this. I know it should not require 2 month to complete a request such as this. (I did make sure all paperwork was in order and that no forms were missing.). Thank you.

My husband was recently off and collecting unemployment

My husband was recently laid off and collecting unemployment benefits in Indiana. After collecting for 5 weeks, he found a full time job. I'm the one who filed his weekly claims. I knowingly filed 7 weeks even though he had begun working. I didn't buy luxuries with it, I used it for credit card bills. But I know I was wrong. Should I notify them and admit the fraud and make arrangements to pay back all monies owed? Is it possible it won't be discovered? Will it make any difference for me to approach them first?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IndianaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No
