I'm an Honduran citizen, I live in Medellin,Colombia and I
Good Morning,My name is***** and I'm an Honduran citizen, I live in Medellin,Colombia and I work for a US Company located in Boulder, Colorado and I'm having an issue with the company right now.I have a full time employment contract with the company since July 2015. On November 2015 they told me they were going to close the project I was working and that they will change my contract from a full time employment to an hourly contract. The project was closed and I continued doing work for the company and I continue receiving my full time employmente salary since my previous contract was never terminated by the company or by me.Las week on September 25, the company sent me an email saying that they made a mistake that they continued sending my full time employment salary since November and I was suppose to go on an hourly contract by that time and that they need that I sent the money back they sent me for this mistake. I don't have a termination letter of my full time employment contract and I never received a new hourly contract. On the 26/09/2016 I sent my resignation letter to the company and they didn't receive it.Also one more thing, I Don't have a US Working Visa, What Can I do?

I am 58 years old female worked with the company years union
I am 58 years old female worked with the company for 5 years for the union in Seattle being a union representative in call center.On 6/29 my employer sent me on administrative unpaid leave during investigation on some correspondence/statement they found in media about bad job conditions and possible discrimination of people of color and immigrants in our call center.Director of my call center told they think I let media know because I am one of the representatives of Racial Social Justice Committee of our union and was active in open discussions about discrimination in organization and in our department particularly during our meetings.I am not the author of that media statement, but director of my call center presented me paper that I am on administrative leave until the end of investigation as long as they need.The period on this leave is unclear and employer is not responding on my request to let me come to work or pay my administrative leave. I have two old parents I support and have to pay rent and bills. I also have some health problem after working for 5 years in pretty stressful environment being on the phone for 8 hours a day and need to keep my dedications. I do not even know if I am eligible to keep my health benefits during administrative unpaid leave. Please, advise.Svetlana Plummer
