I have worked as a Family Nurse Practitioner for 23 years at

I have worked as a Family Nurse Practitioner for 23 years at a Community Health Center. I officially "retired" at age 66 and immediately starting working PT there, accruing ETO and partial Holiday Pay.I have a Masters degree but I am not Board Certified.Last Thursday he HR Director called me and informed me that unless I am Board Certified I could not work as it my services could not be billed. We are a Federal health care center. I was scheduled for the following day and was told I could work that or not, I chose not to and did receive pay for that day although I have notcashed the check or signed their paperwork.Here's my question:When was the Clinic advised of this regulationWhy wasn't I told in advance so I could start studying or plan my budget correctlyWhy has the other PT NP still working there despite not having finished his Masters and not being Board Certified?I have worked an average of 40-60 hours amount consistently since I retired from FT.We receive notices from Credentialing Dept when our licenses are getting within 3 months of expiring ( I recently did) and they notified meWe have had many personnel changes in the HR dept and a new Credentialling personI was the oldest employee there. Almost 68.No other reason was given .Does this sound right?

I worked on 4th of July and received a regular wage for that day. I worked a total of 36 hours for that week. My work schedule was 3 days on, 2 days off, 12 hours a day. Should I have not received compensation for working on the 4th? The state is Missouri and they have work laws I can't quite understand.

I work company that is having a retreat on Wednesday and

i work for a company that is having a retreat on Wednesday and Thursday this week. the retreat includes a*****there and back and also staying over for two nights. I've been diagnosed with degenerative lumbar disease and felt the retreat (sitting 8 hrs) and the drive might be too much for my back. I requested if i could use PTO for those two days and was granted the PTO. Last week the owners of the company told everyone they could have that Friday off as "holiday" pay. HR assured me I was also entitled to Friday Holiday time because the office will be closed. Today I was sent an email and was told that the people not attending the retreat would not get paid for Friday or they would have to take it as PTO. I'm the only one not attending the retreat. I feel this is discriminatory, since I would like to go on the retreat but am concerned about what it would do to my back. HR also knows that I'm seeing a Neurosurgeon in July. I'm an hourly employee. Most of the other employees are salaried, but there are a few other hourly employees so I feel I'm being singled out for something that I can't control.

I worked company called SteriTech. rentokil bought them

I worked for a company called SteriTech. rentokil bought them out. Rentokil Started making changes in our original contract (example taking our holiday pay) I signed a noncompete clause with SteriTech, rentokil the new company never made us sign any new contracts for noncompete. Is the noncompete clause still in affect? I gave them a notice and they did not let me complete the notice and ask me to carry my vehicle to a different location and they did not need my services anymore,so in a sense I was terminated. I would like to start my own company is there any legal ramifications if I do so.

I have been working in NYC large international

I have been working in NYC for a large international corporation as an independent contractor since 2007. However, I receive a W2 instead of a 1099. Every week I work about 40+ hours, and the conditions of my work seem to mirror the IRS "employee" definition. I receive overtime pay, but not sick leave (until 2014, with the passing of the FMLA, accruing 1 hour sick pay for every 30 hrs worked), vacation time, personal leave, bereavement leave (my dad died in 2009), 401K contributions, holiday pay, medical leave (I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer in 2014 and have worked as much as possible, using just my prescribed sick days, throughout my chemo, radiation, surgery and recovery), or other company benefits.Do you believe that I would have a valid case for recovering compensation for the benefits I've been denied during this time? It's only recently that I've felt up to addressing this issue and seeking advice. The company recently merged with another, and there's been a number of layoffs. It's likely that my department will be eliminated within the next year.I'd be grateful for your insights.Thank you.

I did not receive Holiday pay Day and New Years on my check.

Hello! I did not receive Holiday pay for Christmas Day and New Years on my check. We had a staff meeting today and director of board(religious exempt child care) told us we did not get paid holiday pay if we took vacation the week after Christmas. The board decided to make change without informing us. Several employees took time off expecting to receive holiday pay. No notification of change in policy until after the fact. Is this legal?
