Was told to clock out after 8-hours worked and to work off

Was told to clock out after 8-hours worked and to work off the clock (for 2-years). Later my timecard was altered to avoid paying me OT (totaling to $2,600.+). Submitted a $36k claim to them w/ penalties $75k - Company returned their counter-offer at $25k - What would be a good counter-offer from me?

My company has not yet provided our 2017 Compensation Plan

My company has not yet provided our 2017 Compensation Plan or Goals. They also have not given us any specific date by when we will have the comp plan or the goals. Historically, we don't have them on Jan 1, but this is one of the latest plans to roll out so far in my 6 year tenure. They claim they can't set goals before we know how 2016 ended and that getting all the data takes time. They also are blaming our acquisition on a delay in finalizing a comp plan. What are our rights - what they are doing this year, and did last year as well is pay us at "100%" of the prior year's plan payout each month until we have a comp plan and quotas in place. Then, when the new plan rolls out they true us up to what we should have actually been paid. I just feel there is something unjust about paying us retroactive on terms I wasn't aware of as I was making sales in Q1 (for example - if they include a comp term that all deals have to be a multi-year in order to earn X how could I have known that when working on deals in Q1?)These are the 2016 plan terms - we never sign off on this either (which I think is strange):The 2016 Account Director US Sales Incentive Plan (the “Plan”) is the sales incentive plan for Fiscal Year 2016 for the eligible sales roles listed above. This plan is effective as of the later of: (a) January 1, 2016 or (b) the eligible employee's hire date. This Plan and any attached commission worksheet, including but not limited to the description of the employee's accounts or quota, may be modified at any time during the term of this Plan in writing by (company name). This Plan supersedes any previous sales compensation plan.Thoughts or advice?

I currently work at Wells Fargo as a teller. I was out of

I currently work at Wells Fargo as a teller. I was out of balance by 2000 after research and research it wasn't anything that I did wrong in the transaction. I've come to the conclusion that one of my employees stole it. I explained to my boss and she said, "the loss prevention process is a lot to deal with" and explained that, "other people might get fired in the process" she went ahead called HR and didn't tell them my suspicions. Now basically I am waiting to get terminated but it's not fair. I did nothin wrong.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I am in California.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Part timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Let him know I have two weeks to figure out what to do or else I'm fired.

I have received an employee evaluation after working for the

I have received an employee evaluation after working for the same organization 2 years. I have never had a 90 day evaluation; nor my annual evaluation. I have since transferred to another organization network in a different position. I did not apply for the position, I was just transferred. I need to know what my rights are. HR states that I have 30 days from receipt to respond with my comments and submit. There were a lot of things in this evaluation that were more personal than professional. What are my rights? What can I do?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: yes. californiaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I believe it is "at will" and I have Exempt statusJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: oh yes. The date of the eval states from March 2015, when I started employment Feb 2015. I was asked to type up the eval and then submit to her. It was my first. I still have my original. There are comments I had made that have been moved to other places. And where I had not placed comments, she placed some there and stated these were my comments. Also, My new supervisor was invited to this evaluation with my previous supervisor and manager.

I am a sales rep for a company that pays out a 5% commission

Hello, I am a sales rep for a company that pays out a 5% commission on deals when invoices are paid in full by the client. Our typical projects have 5 deliverables (5 invoices), so it may take 6-12 months to receive full compensation, wo we usually have a backlog from which we receive a steady stream of commissions. I recently switched to a new role on the sales team as a pre-sales engineer that has a lower commission rate (2%). The CEO of our company says because I moved into a new role, he doesn't need to compensate me at the sales rate (5%) for my backlog of $500,000. I feel like I earned those commissions as a sales rep, which means I'm entitled to them now, despite my new role. I deserve fair compensation for past work at the agreed upon rate, regardless of my FUTURE work. He disagrees. Is there any legal grounds for my argument?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: UtahJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No.
