If my employer discharged me without cause and severance me
If my employer discharged me without cause and severance me out with a mutual separation agreement. Can i write a resignation letter and still collect unemployment? Employer stated that they were going in a different direction with position but have since posted the same position I held. Do I have any legal grievances? I believe it was retaliation on multiple parts. They previous laid off an employee who then was replaces by a relative of the owner. They claim that the employee job position was eliminated but all her tasks came to my desk. I spoke up stating that these were not my tasks and should be compensated for the additional work. This is when the employer discharged me. What rights do I have at this point? I have not signed the mutual separation agreement yet. HR Director stated " Once you sign we are squared/ even so you can sue us for anything" This is what has me curious and wondering what illegal actions they have done against me.

Re: the new fed.regulation for overtime increasing the
Re: the new fed.regulation for overtime increasing the salary threshold from $23,660 to $47,476 annually ($915/weekly) --Can you clarify if there is any consideration of bonus pymts which increase the annual compensation for these employees. For example, we have the position of Writer, & pay range is from $40,000 to $50,000 annually. Also, a $42K Writer may get a $5000 annual bonus and a $1000 spot bonus during the year, bringing the annual salary to $48,000. However, on a weekly basis this Writer would not meet the Weekly threshold. Does the total annual compensation of $48,000 allow us to keep this employee as Exempt?Also, if this Writer at the lower salary range must change to Non-Exempt due to the salary, do all those in Writer positions now need to be classified as NonExempt? Or might we need to change/add titles such as those Writers and Sr. Writers if there are any differences in the roles?
