Today I was called in the office about my attendance at work. In the beginning of the month after the holidays I was sick with the stomach flu. Then two days later my entire family caught the stomach flu that I had to take a day off but still worked from home. Then on Thursday January 12, 2017, my co-worker and I got into a car accident on our way to lunch. After going to the emergency room we both were advised by the doctor to take that following Friday office. Now based on my meeting, I was informed that I can no longer go to the doctor during work hours even though I make up the time. If I do it has to be during my one hour lunch, even though I make up the time or I have to use a vacation day. Since my employment I have been honest about my time out and it all has been medical. I have provided proof and it has always been a problem. I have a rod in my back from a previous accident and since this last one, it it has causedone complication in my legs...nothing to serious thus far but minor pain that my doctor wants to monitor it for the next 6 months but his late hours are btn 4-5pm. Now what can I do about this if I get off at 5pm and cannot meet my doctor after work hours?

I am in Michigan, I believe my employer is taking advantage

I am in Michigan, I believe my employer is taking advantage of me. First, I was unemployment for 3 months. When they brought me back, they made me start my time over. Lost my insurance and vacation time. Now, they have realized they didn't take out my insurance payments. They never informed me of the cost. They say I owe them over a $1,000.00 dollars. I only get payed twice a week. That will take my whole next check and quite a bit from the next. How am I supposed to live?

I live in state. I am an exempt salaried employee. This year

I live in Washington state. I am an exempt salaried employee. This year my company announced a change in PTO policy stating that if we have non-billable hours during the week between Christmas and New Year's we must use PTO hours to cover the difference to achieve 40 hours for the week. While the policy applies to all salaried employees, it is only enforced on those that have fewer than 40 billable hours for that week due to current staffing assignments. Is this legal in general and specific to WA state?JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: at willJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: consequences if an employee does not have accrued PTO to cover non-billable hours during that period.
