What other concerns should i be made aware of?

I am a RN. I had a patient family member call my supervisor

I am a RN. I had a patient family member call my supervisor and make multiple complaints against me. The only founded and admitted to of these was I neglected to offer a ice pack to patient although no request for one was ever made.I was called to office by supervisor who repeatedly demanded I admit to allegations because I must have done this because she had listened to complaint for over 30 min . Although I denied over and over again she showed me she had discipline action written out and approved by HR before I was ever even spoke to or questioned.I refused to sign because I wouldn't admit guilt for something I hadn't done. She then said we'll do you want to call her back then ? I declined knowing it's never good to confront an angry client. I was dismissed from office and returned after second call completed. The patient daughter admitted to making false statements on nearly all issues but the ice pack and said she didn't understand discharge teaching. I was suspended two days due to this. Any advice ?I have met wit HR who stand firm with my disinclined but requested a formal written statement.

I'm a civil servant working several years for a school

I'm a civil servant working several years for a school district. I was given letter stating my benefits package when I was hired. Each year since they have given me a followup letter (contract) to sign restating my benefits package (sick time, vacation time, salary, etc) the last 3 years they have made several changes to what I was initially offered when I was hired, altering reasons for sick leave, limiting my use of personal time to circumstances that will never happen in my life, and most recently requiring me to agree to having accrued time paid via a deposit to a retirement account rather than direct payment to me. There is also a new clause concerning future increases that I don't agree with. I can't sign this agreement. As a civil servant with permanent status, can they fire me for not signing this agreement? Also, does my initial agreement with them when I was hired trump these annual letters? Is there any way to reinstate what they have already taken away from me?

My 25 year old daughter works for a large company for 3 yrs

My 25 year old daughter works for a large company for 3 yrs this Oct and has been a good employee with a wonderful work ethic. She has a severe eating disorder and was in residential treatment for 9 weeks from Oct to Dec, 2015. She used 9 weeks of FMLA, and relapsed and was sent back to treatment the end of April until the 3rd of July, 2016. She asked to work remotely, so she could go to aftercare. She worked 1 day, July 8th, relapsed and had to go to the hospital for 5 days and back to residential treatment. She was notified that if she is unable to return to work by Aug 4th, she will be terminated due to being unable to return after medical leave. She has used up all of her FMLA plus personal leave time. Is it better for her to quit her job rather than be terminated, so that if/when she gets healthier, a prospective employer would be more likely to hire her? How would quitting affect her COBRA, unemployment, and long- term disability?

Within the last few months I have been experiencing drastic

Within the last few months I have been experiencing drastic changes in my mood and productivity at work. I disclosed feelings of depression twice to my manager, whom I work with very closely along with 3 other engineers. Last Friday he calls me in his office to ask me the status of my tasks, to which I begin asking some questions about how to fully test them. He then accuses me of not reading the tasks at all, stares at me waiting for a response, expecting me not to be defensive. Then I get frustrated to the point where I needed to leave his office, so I walk to my desk 10 feet in front of his office. He says, "Chris wait, come back." and then barked "CHRIS GET IN HERE NOW!". I stood at my desk with my hands on my head just breathing attempting not to break down in the middle of the office. My company has 50 people, our building is small, and people can hear him while he screams at me when i'm 10 feet away. He then gives me an ultimatum that I either change my mood (which I believe is depression due to stress and possibly electromagnetic radiation at work) or I quit and find somewhere else to work. I'm not sure what to do. I have only worked here for just under a year.

I work for the public schools in north Carolina. My supervisor monitors what I am doing on my computer. Is he allowed so even when he bullies me based on my activities? He asks me to teach him how to do something even with skills required outside the workplace. Is there a property law that applies? He in many occasion s has been disrespectful and as I think bulging to me I reported to hr and his boss and nobody did anything. Is there anything I can do?

If you worked in and area where there were many types of refrigerant gases such as R-22, R-134a and 410a along with welding gases and became sick, because of lack of good ventilation and you complain to your supervisor, but he would not do anything to try to fix the problem. Until you call out sick then almost a week later, they call you while out sick and said you are terminated.

I am an LPN working with a 5 provider medical office in

I am an LPN working with a 5 provider medical office in Connecticut for the past 16 years. Recently, management sent the 4 nurses in our office an email stating that they were going to "share" the nurses with another MD who is not with our practice, but in a solo practice about 5 miles away. They are telling us that when he needs a nurse because his is out sick or on vacation that we will have to go and work at his office until she returns. I was not asked and have never agreed to work at any office other than the one I am stationed at. In addition, his hours are longer than my normal workday--I work 8am to 5pm and his hours are 830am to 730pm and this presents a hardship for me as my husband works 3rd shift and leaves for work at 730pm. My question is this: Can I refuse to work at another office on the grounds that I was not asked and this has never been part of my job, and the hours are outside of my normal hours. Is this legal? I will leave this job and find another one if I am force to do this. Also, if I am not given a choice, could I leave on these grounds and collect unemployment while I search for another position.
