I was "hired" by a housekeeping company, although the boss was saying that we are not his employees. He dictated all our hours, duties, and demanded alot from us and although I was told I would be paid a percentage of the clients fee, I was never told what exactly the fees or percentages were. As time went on, he started paying less percentage saying we were being docked because of whatever he decided. I was not even getting minimum wage at the end!

I live in a very small town called Rangely ,CO so I don't

I live in a very small town called Rangely ,CO so I don't know if you can help me but I work in pharmacy and had to turn my boss in for working impaired and many other illegal things she has done. My administration did nothing, and I was still having to work with her in the same office.. She found out that I was the one who was involved with the investigation and she started acting out towards me. So, I literally would shake and have anxiety attacks at work or even driving to work. I went to the doctor and he put me on FMLA. I need help in getting this taken care of so I can have my job back, patients are no longer in danger, and rumors that are going around town about me will stop. People in the pharmacy are saying degrading things to me on Facebook I have blocked them but if we have mutual friends, they will post something on my friends timeline to where I can see it. I am usually a very strong confident person who does my job at the highest of standards and now feel like I can't even go out in public. There is obviously a lot more to this and I have a lot of evidence against her and the hospital. I just don't know how to start....JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have just reported things to HR and the illegal situations to my CEO and CCOJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Well I am on FMLA and the HR, CEO, and CCO asked me to go have a meeting with them tomorrow at 11:00 am but I am on FMLA leave

My daughter was fired today after 5 years employment with a

My daughter was fired today after 5 years employment with a prominent hospital. She hadn't been given what or why and therefore no chance to remedy. They simply said we are parting ways. They offered her one months severance. She held a project manager position in the IT dept. Does one months severance seem adequate? She was caught by surprise. She's in a masters program and the hospital agreed to pay partial tuition. Where does that leave her now?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Yes, OhioJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not sure what you mean?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes, the agreement they've asked her to sign stating she won't file a suit...does that prevent her from filing for unemployment?
