Random legal(ish) question and I'm on maternity leave right

Hello! Random legal(ish) question My name is ***** ***** I'm on maternity leave right now. My company really messed up what they told me was provided to me by the short term disability provider (they told me 11 weeks with income coming to me the entire time) turns out it was only 4 weeks of paid leave. i now found another job and i want to leave the company, but i am worried they are going to request that i pay back 2 weeks of unaccrued vacation time that they advanced to me to make up for their mess-up on the short term leave.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: i live in Pennsylvania the company is based in Ottawa, CanadaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No I did write a letter of complaint to the CEO documenting the issue and that is when they let me take the vacation timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: i don't think so. i guess i am just worried that when i put in my two weeks notice (on Monday, May 1) they are just going to fire me, or say, pay us back for the two weeks of vacation time. ok

I currently work at Wells Fargo as a teller. I was out of balance by 2000 after research and research it wasn't anything that I did wrong in the transaction. I've come to the conclusion that one of my employees stole it. I explained to my boss and she said, "the loss prevention process is a lot to deal with" and explained that, "other people might get fired in the process" she went ahead called HR and didn't tell them my suspicions. Now basically I am waiting to get terminated but it's not fair. I did nothin wrong.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I am in California.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Part timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Let him know I have two weeks to figure out what to do or else I'm fired.

My wife is currently pregnant (3 months) and just got a verbal offer from a small-sized (around 25 employees) company and waiting for a written one. She has not disclosed her pregnancy during the interview yet. Although we are aware of that we are not required, but considers to do so before signing the offer to set the right expectation and avoid unnecessary stress to hide it. We are also concerned, however, in case disclosing it could affect her hiring and starting the new job successfully. What kind of things we should be aware of to protect her rights?

I'm going back to work next week after being on maternity

I'm going back to work next week after being on maternity leave, but my company restructured while I was out and now I'm coming back to a new job and a new boss. Unfortunately, they told me that the new position they put me in requires 40% travel nationwide, which I definitely can't do and they know I can't do... before I only had to do less than 10%. I believe they put me in a position that forces me to quit.

I was fired due to policy violation I worked for Wells Fargo

I was fired due to policy violationI worked for Wells Fargo for almost 3years. I was hired as as a teller March 2014 and 11months later I became a personal banker. In October 2016, two weeks after coming back from my maternity leave I was terminated due to policy violation.When I was a teller in April 2014 I took my parents to Wells Fargo to open new accounts (requirement to meet sale goals). Wells Fargo requires the personal banker to open the account for the customer and get them sign up with at least 4products when opening a new acct which are checking, savings, debit card and online banking! When the personal banker who helped my parents open their accounts he asked for their email and my parents don't use emails, so the personal banker asked for my personal email and used it to set up their online banking. I became a personal banker February 2015 and I was always pushed to get more sales and more products from customers, every time I would let a customer walk away without online banking or a savings account my manager will question me and say I didn't push hard enough or asked enough questions to get them set up with all the services required!!! I would say they don't have an email address or they don't neeed a savings. In different occasions she even said I should grab the customers phone and check if they had an email that way I could set up online banking for them. As a personal banker I brought a lot of friends and family members to open new accounts and most of the time they didn't need a savings or didn't want online banking but due to all the pressure I had I would push them to get that extra savings and offer to use my personal email to set up their online banking. Since the personal banker who open my parents account used my email to set up their online banking I didnt see a problem with using my personal email to set up online banking for friends and family. I went on maternity leave June 3rd 2016 and went back to work on September 23rd 2016. Two weeks after coming back from my leave investigations department called me and started questioning me about my personal email address and why so many people had that email on their accounts, at this point I had completely forgot about that other banker using my email to set up my parents account so it looked like I came up with using my personal email all by myself. After being on the phone for about 30mins they said they had no more questions two days later I was terminated. Was my termination justified? Can I sue Wells Fargo for not giving me a warning or can I get any kind of compensation? customers most of them my family but a few were close friends or good customers of mine
