    I am an RN with an excellent record for 42 years. I had an interview Friday to be rehired in a position I held before. The interview went well, felt assured of the hire. Today, the manager said she was going to "pass" on me d/t some comments made on my facebook page regarding a previous manager. Does she have the right to withhold a job I'm very qualified for because of what is posted on my wall? If I was not an employee when these things were posted, can she legally hold them against me?

    If I was an employee for 12 years, laid off, then hired back as independent contractor 2 weeks after severance date, am i misclassified? I am doing the exact same job. 30 hour per week contract, use my same company computer, go into the office (most days) and work for same boss
  • My company currently offers to buy back the shares of its own

    My company currently offers to buy back the shares of its own stock that it has placed in each employee's 401(k) plan for the last 14 years upon the termination of any employee's employment with the company. However, the company also says:
    "...the Board reserves the absolute and unconstrained right to revoke or modify the offer to repurchase stock at any time, for any reason, without advanced notice."
    My question is:
    Can the company "revoke or modify the offer to repurchase stock" AFTER I have terminated my employment with the company (but before they have repurchased my stock, which can take up to 90 days), or, as soon as I have terminated my employment with the company, are they then NOT allowed to "revoke or modify the offer to repurchase stock"?
