Hello! My question is: Is it lawful for me to have the ability to have audio listening capabilities on my video surveillance system? I will list some facts... We are in the State of Oregon, we are a small employer with 50 part time people, we are a drive-through coffee retailer, we have video recording but we can only listen to audio in real time the system doesn't record or have audio playback, we do have a signature waiver with consent and release for every employee in their handbook regarding video/audio signed.
Fortune 50 company informed me position was eliminated and
Fortune 50 company informed me position was eliminated and handed me what looks like a comprehensive release and separation agreement (in Company's favor). I had solid performance reviews my entire career at the firm, unlike some of the others whose positions were eliminated. The severance provides 1 week of pay for each year that I worked, I think. What kind of attorney would be most helpful without charging me lots of money that I don't have? What value would I receive by reviewing the release and agreement with an attorney? Could the payment be negotiated upward, for example? Could some of the release terms be removed? What release provisions should I ask of the company?

I have worked for the same employer for 3.5 years. When I was hired I was told that I would accrue 4 weeks of vacation per year since I am an exempt employee. To date I've accrued 14 weeks and taken 4. Now that I'm leaving the company they are balking at the idea of paying me for the unused vacation time. However the handbook states that all unpaid vacation is due when I leave. It's worth about 12k to pursue the time I've earned. Do I have a case?

I am a 62+ year old employee of a large foundation. I have worked under an at will contract for the last 3+ years. I believe they will be terminating me soon because they will be closing or redirecting the funds. I will receive 4 months of severance. Do I have any grounds for negotiating beyond the 4 months?
