I was terminated due to expense report issues. (Wrongly)...
I was terminated due to expense report issues. (Wrongly)... I was never accused of theft or fraud... Reason given was for not being fiscally responsible... (Certainly eluding to without saying directly expense report falsification)... This occurred 17 months ago, and I have heard nothing since.... Should/ can I assume that this issue is behind me?Thanks
I was fired from my job that I had been at yrs due to
I was fired from my job that I had been at for 12 yrs due to Medical Insurance fraud. I was told that at my exit interview. I worked from Texas (the company is based in California) which is an employment "at will" state, but I was told I was fired for the insurance fraud. This came about because when I joined this company in 2004, I was engaged to a woman that had a daughter, we were together until 2016 but never got married. This company moved me to San Antonio in 2008. She had to quit her job, so I enrolled her in the company's medical insurance plan (Blue Cross/Shield) being told that I could because we were in a Domestic partner relationship. We had and used the insurance until 2016 when she left me. I got married to another lady with 2 children in April. I removed the lady and daughter from the previous relationship and enrolled my new wife and kids in May. The company's HR person called and asked for a Divorce Decree, then I explained that we were never married but lived together as husband and wife the whole time. We filed taxes jointly, she was on all of our bank accounts, and she wore a ring that I gave her when I asked her to marry me. On 15, June, I was told it was my last day and that I was released for Insurance fraud. I believe this is wrongful termination. Am I correct and do I have a case to pursue?
I had a "Gentlemens" agreement with the owner of our Company
I had a "Gentlemens" agreement with the owner of our Company to work out "sweat equity" and become the owner of the Company. I worked 10 plus years for lower wages for the "sweat equity" to find the owner is now selling the Company to a stranger. The Company is located in New Hampshire. Do I have any course of action? This was a verbal agreement with no paperwork.

I'm just accepted a job at a new company starting in early
I'm just accepted a job at a new company starting in early August. Today, I found out that my current company is willing to offer me a layoff/severance package. However, for the month of August they want to pay me as a regular employee and my severance to start Sept. 1.I'm concerned that I can't legally start working at the new company in August, while still technically employed at current company. Current company offering me August full salary and an additional 14 weeks of severance after that.Is there any legal way around this or opportunity to negotiate my severance?

I am an independent contractor that found a client through a Consulting Firm. I got a contract where the consulting firm basically states "if client doesn't pay us, we don't pay you (no matter how many hours you worked)" and "if client doesn't pay use we can advance you money, but if we don't get paid, you will owe us". I am curious what is to stop Consulting Firm from claiming they were never paid?
The secretary of NPDB made her decision on my malpractice
The secretary of NPDB made her decision on my malpractice report held online and how I disputed it. She has decided to keep the corrected report that I still disagree with. She states that some of the issues I mentioned to her were "beyond the scope" of her jurisdiction and the remaining issues did not make her want to change the report and nothing that I wrote, according to her agency protocol, made her feel the report was inaccurate to her/them, yet I still completely disagree with this decision and the report. Documentation from the reporting entity negates my perspective and this is what was used to rationalize keeping the report. Is there anything else I can do now that a decision has been made to try to either 1-void the report or 2-have it corrected again, other than adding more thoughts to the statement?
My husband got a job in Florida at the same place with me.View more employment law questions
My husband got a job in Florida at the same place with me. He got a job offer letter and a letter of relocation assistance.Today is the day when he will put his resignation letter in.We are a little nervous because the offer letter states "at will" employment and what is the guarantee that he will actually have a job when he shows up.Would employers let employees know in writing that a job offer is rescinded or withdrawn? You would think they do not let you relocate and then say no job for you?This is a legitimate company with many employees, not a start up of any sort but still makes me so insecure... I don't think that anything can make me secure at this point when you leave everything behind...
