My territory just changed, my physical address is barely

My territory just changed, my physical address is barely within the new territory created therefore making it the new area I will cover. The problem is 90% of this new territory I did not cover before, I am already in the process of relocating to within the central area of my current territory (which my boss was well aware of) that they have already posted the position for and the new territory I will have is 3 times the size of my current one in contrast to being able to keep the modified territory I already cover which is now drastically smaller. I was told I could apply for the position in the territory I already cover and have always covered since hired in 2014, but no guarantee I would get it or even be considered.I spoke with my boss about this dilemma including my spouse is already interviewing for jobs that would not be in my new territory and our house has been listed for sale. She planned on speaking to HR and we would talk after, but that did not happen. Instead, our call was canceled and I had a very uncomfortable conversation with HR who asked me why I had issues with my boss, coworkers, and a statement I supposedly made that I would obtain a fake address in order to get the position for the territory I already cover and want to stay in- among other very personal questions concerning my daughter's custody agreement.I am bewildered and completely blindsided by all of this. What should I do? What are my options?

I applied for the manager position at my job, the director

I applied for the manager position at my job, the director told me she wanted me for the position and started delegating tasks for me to perform without compensation. She also wanted me to interview potential managers for the position. I explained that it was unethical and that I wouldn't do it. I also spoke with HR about an employee situation and forwarded the info to her attention. She stated that I should've kept my mouth shut, HR doesn't like her and didn't want me in the position so I was no longer a candidate. There is more but I was wondering if I have a case? It was a hostile working environment and I felt intimidated, this occurred in Texas.

I have an offer from a consulting company to fill a position

I have an offer from a consulting company to fill a position for their largest client. I had told them I had other interviews and wanted to go to them (this is before my start date). I was told that the client had been interviewing for months and I was the first person they have wanted. The consulting company even increased the rate but I now said that I have to agree not to do any other interviews even though I am not working. I guess I messedup by telling them I had other interviews already lined up but I am honest person. I want to take the consulting job but also want to take these other interviews. Can they legally tell me term of offer is conditional on not interviewing? I don't work for them or their client. I don't want to lose this opportunity on the hope I may get one of the other two. I have a already interviewed with both so these interviews are the finals. They are permanent positions vs the seven month consulting position.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At will state hourly consulting positionJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so

I was conducting an interview and the applicant informed me

I was conducting an interview and the applicant informed me they had a security clearance so I didn't need to run a background check. What does that mean? And if they have a security clearance as long as they sign the authorization form, I can still run a background check, right?
