The company I worked for was acquired by another company and they are refusing to give me a job description or any indication of what the expectations for my job performance are. If they fire me for asking for this information would they still be able to block me from collecting unemployment? Similarly can they do the same thing if they find out I'm looking for a new job?

I am a sole proprietor of an Adult Family home. I have 4 full-time caregivers. 45 days ago I hired and began training a young woman who now reveals that she is pregnant and will require a scheduled C-section delivery and mandatory 12 week recovery period. I cannot operate without the position filled. She will not be able to complete the job description (heavy lifting, pt transfers). I want to dismiss her and find somebody who can commit to a year of service.

My job has written a new job description for my position at

My job has written a new job description for my position at work. It is not applicable to the work I do, it is administratively wrong. No attempt has been made to rectify the matter once it was brought to management and the local AFGE to correct this. As a result I work side by side with other employees on a different job description doing the same job and being evaluated by the same criteria. Is this a case that can be referred to the Dept. of Labor for resolution?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: North Carolina working for the Veteran Health AdministrationJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet have attempted to resolve this through management and my local AFGE with no results.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I have provided them with the documentation of the errors and have only been told they will get back to me. This was brought to their attention in January of 2015.

I work for a college and have a detailed job description

I work for a college and have a detailed job description from HR. My interim supervisor has taken parts of my responsibilities and given them to others in the office. I have never been reprimanded in my 16 years of employment with the college. I feel like he is trying to eliminate my position. Do I have any legal rights?

I was threatened by my director of nursing. This is the

I was threatened by my director of nursing. This is the scenario I am a MDS Coordinator for long term nursing home. In my job description there is no where in it stating that I must cover the floor when nurses are short. I have a copy of it. I was also told this upon hire that I would not have to work the floor. Well we had lost 4 nurses in past 3 months due to poor management and false information that was told to them so as a result they are short. My director of nurses and administrator have been working the floor which they should they caused the shortage. Well Monday morning my director of nursing threw a clip board at me on my desk with schedule on it and said you will work the floor look at the schedule and pick out when you want to work. She then came back into my office and asked did I look at it and I said no, I'm not working the floor. She said you have no choice you will do it or find different employment as I can do MDS's too you know. I felt I was threatened and if I did not work the floor then I was fired/terminated so I left the building as she was out of control. I have witnesses as she did the same thing to another staff nurse that has medical limitations. She heard everything and our director of nurses was out of control, made both of us afraid of her actions and accusations. Do I have the right to get unemployment or chance to have charges pressed against her. I have 5-10 previous employers that will testify as well on what hostile enviroment it is to work there.

I work for a government agency. A new GM started in 2011 and

Hi,I work for a government agency. A new GM started in 2011 and I have not received a raise since then. What I have received was additional responsibilities (a whole complete job responsibility) due to an employee not meeting the expectations. The person was placed in another dept. and now has been promoted twice. Last year I was transferred to largest division of the agency because of my outstanding work and capability to handle a lot of work. I believe the unfairness is due to Race and age. What can I do? Is there a law that makes a government agency to pay or give a percentage in raise to cover for the TWO jobs they are handling? And saving the agency in money and benefits?

I am a small business owner, I pay a guy to pick up garbage

I am a small business owner, I pay a guy to pick up garbage on a residential route. He knew the job description and requirements and he understood that he would be a subcontractor for the work. He understood that its his responsibility to take care of his own personal business when it comes to taxes and therefore. I have no workmans comp. insurance, because I'm not required to offer it because I don't have 3 or more so called employees. there is no written agreements of contracts between me or him. He got dog bit and required medical attention. the law said the homeowner was responsible for his medical bills. so we told him we would go with him to the homeowner and see what we could get done, but he never communicated with us about the situation. Now I get a letter from his lawyer wanting the standard form for an employee to file a worker's compensation claim to file with the north Carolina industrial commission. He also is asking for my Insurance carrier and policy number, which again I don't have. The lawyer also states according to the job duties that it is impossible for him to be designated as a subcontractor. He picks up garbage 4 days a week with 8 hours or less a day, depending on his pace. we have talked to my guy that picks up the garbage and got dog bit and and he said he had doctor bills that needed to be paid and we told him we would take care of his bills, we just wished he would have communicated with us. what is your professional opinion. Thanks!

My question may seem like a slightly odd one, but here

My question may seem like a slightly odd one, but here goes...I work for a large retail chain. My job title is Cashier assistant. This involves running for items, boxing up people's orders and generally doing whatever is needed to help the customer.Occasionally I will cashier. Cashiers are paid an extra 50 cents an hour more than an assistant, and when cashier ingredients in receive that extra money while on the register.I enjoy my assistant role and have passed on multiple opportunities to promote to cashier so that I can do what I enjoy.recently a full time cashier that has been known to be incredibly slow has started doing assistant work. The managers don't want him on the lanes because of his speed, and will not address the issue of his speed with him. I was told he has played the race card in the past, and thats why he is allowed to do whatever he wants. basically they're afraid of a lawsuit.The issue I have is that I am now being made to cashier in his place, while he is doing my job description. He also is continuing to receive the extra 50 cents an hour, because he is classified as a cashier. Is it legal for them to continue paying this employee the cashier pay for doing assistant work, while the rest of us assistants are payed less for the same job.
