My friend was terminated over a year ago for "performance". We live in VA but are union members and protected against terminations without "just cause".The union wants to settle for $1000. She want her job back.The grievance procedure has been followed & no deadlines have been missed.We are confident we would win arbitration, we just need to get there.Even the executive board has voted to go to arbitration but shortly thereafter we were placed under trusteeship & they appear not willing to go there.What is her recourse?

I work for a private club as an assistant general manager.

Good Morning,I work for a private club as an assistant general manager. In the past 6 months it has become very stressful with the new board of directors not being unified and fighting with each other. I have several issues and want to know if I have a case. I was wondering if you could let me know if I'm overreacting or should seek counsel?1) At my anniversary date the BOD voted unanimously to give me an increase in salary. (Documented in meeting mins) Directly after the meeting two board members stated that they would like more time to research the new Salary Labor Laws. To date I have not been paid my increase.2) In May I notified my supervisor General Manager and the Accounting Manager (in charge of payroll) that in the near future I would be requiring surgery that would cause me to need approx. (1) week of sick time (which I currently have 30 days accumulated). I stated that when I received a surgery date from my doctor I would inform them giving as much notice as possible. I gave no details of the type of surgery or personal information. I have now learned that the Accounting Manager had discussed in detail that I have "Female Problems that I needed taken care of" with members of the board of directors.3) My current General Manager has submitted his letter of resignation and will be leaving Oct 13th. After he submitted his resignation I was told by the board president that "If I was his sister he would tell me that I should start to look for other work"I work approx 60 hours a week and have since May 2015. I wasn't able to use my 2 weeks paid vacation from last year (Due to changing general managers and busy season) and was not paid for the time. It was washed from my pay stub. This club is a very hostile environment and I have taken comments on a regular basis from board members, supervisors and club members about my body (sexual comments), told I was "stupid" in a staff meeting for suggesting a different approach to marketing and the continual "DEMAND" for more hours weekly.Please let me know your suggestion as to how I should go forward. I appreciate your response.Sincerely,Sharmaine Koenig

I had a serious car accident in March this year. I went back

I had a serious car accident in March this year. I went back to work within 2 weeks (They didn't pay me while I was off). But due to my injuries was not able to do site visits etc,. they knew this and were working round it by me taking on other duties to release another member of staff to do these. I was hospitalized on May 19th and they called me and told me that it was my last day because they were downsizing, doing no more work in Las Vegas and had sold the building. I went in the following week to pick up my checks and belongings. I have in touch with the Director of Operations as he has his own company and I have done some work for him whilst I am off.They have advertised the job the laid me off for on Craigslist.Is this right? I know Nevada is a right to work State but I am just gutted by this. During my time with them (August 11st 2015 to May 19th 2016) I brought in over $2m of work, my work was exemplary and I had not complaints from anyone.

I recently put my two weeks notice into a firm I have been

I recently put my two weeks notice into a firm I have been working at for a couple of years. I have a week and a half of accrued vacation hours saved up. The company itself is based in Florida, but I am a remote employee that lives and pays taxes in Colorado. According to Colorado law, the company is required to pay remaining vacation hours when an employee leaves a company, but Florida does not have a law that requires that.My question is, do labor laws in Colorado apply in this case since I am located in Colorado, or do labor laws in Florida apply since that is where the company is headquartered?

I am 17 years old. I live and work in the state of Florida.

I am 17 years old. I live and work in the state of Florida. I work in a retirement community, (Terracina Grand) as a server in the dining room. I am applying for a job (@Terracina Grand) where I will be a 3rd shift receptionist from 11pm-7am, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.I am taking online classes at a public alternative education school, and will be done will all senior classes online within a month. And then will not have to attend school until graduation at the end of the regular school year.I talked to my school (Beacon High School, Naples,FL) and they said they would allow me to only be a four day student, (Tuesday - Friday) and give me Monday's off due to my job I am applying for. My business director at work (Terracina Grand) suggested that I request a written statement detailing the days and hours that I have to be at school, so that we can send it to HR for help getting me the job.Child labor laws in Florida say that when school is in session, a 17yr old may only work in the hours of 6:30am-11pm and no more than 8 hours a day when school is scheduled the following day. On days when school does not follow, there are no hour restrictions.Am I able to work this job, especially the Sunday night shift, since I won't have school on Monday, because it will be considered a "weekend" for me? (No hour restrictions?)Thank You,Tyler Davidson
