My daughter works for a large corporation and she is being

My daughter works for a large corporation and she is being bullied by her peers. They are spreading lies and rumors about her and trying to get her into trouble with management. The reason this happened is because she went to HR about her manager that was treating her badly. Her manager was suspended for the treatment after the evidence was reviewed. All of this has caused a lot of anxiety for my daughter. She is crying all the time and always concerned about losing her job. She got called into management the other day, because of these lies, and is now in therapy...Her manager suggested that she take FMLA for her anxiety issues. She is worried long term that this may affect her job if she takes off for treatment to pull herself together. If she applies for a different position within this large corporation is it legal for that department to know why she took off FMLA? She is concerned taking off could affect her career. What are her rights here?

I work for one of the largest clinical laboratory and after

Hello ,I work for one of the largest clinical laboratory and after I expressed my concerns to my employer that the quality of test blood samples is jeopardized by delayed processing and wrong handling of the blood and urine samples. The delayed processing greatly affects the test results and leads to misdiagnosis and wrong treatment. I expressed my concerns to management and asked to make changes in the process, but nothing have been done. I actually pointed on the events when the wrong processing took place, my supervisor made entire team to report that I am rude and emotionally unstable and accused me in unprofessional behaviors. The team consisted of new employees who are more likely to do what the supervisor asks, as well as the actions against me will help them to cover their negligence. Hence, it is obvious that they reported what ever the manager asked them after I started to act in the best interest of the patients and after I reviled the negligence of both the employees and the management of the company.My question is how can I protect myself against the actions that would affect my employment status and my professional reputation. What documentation should I have on hands to protect myself?

I am an Arizona motor vehicle dealer that has had workers

I am an Arizona motor vehicle dealer that has had workers sign a IRS w-9 form not a IRS w-2, sign a secondary form stating they know they will not have taxes taken out of their pay, and they will be an outside labor employee.All is fine until they quit or get fired and they now try to receive unemployment wages and or protest to the labor board suddenly having a gap of memory where they enjoyed having no taxes being taken out of their pay. is there definitive language that can prevent the ex outside laborer from being successful in over turning their original agreement and the company having exposure and liability etc.

I have a question regarding receiving unemployment benefits.

Hi, I have a question regarding receiving unemployment benefits. I recently resigned because my employer made me work past my normal hours on a daily basis. I had to ask permission to leave at 5:00 because we were short handed. This has been going on for 8 months. One day I had to stay and everyone else left. My supervisor let the other person go home and work and then she left for the day without even saying anything. I was the only one left in the building besides one director. I had a meeting with management a few days later regarding the issue and nothing was done. My supervisor lied and the VP of operations was a bully throughout the meeting. I left the meeting in tears and knew I had to resign. What are the chances of collecting unemployment until I find another job.

I am a teacher in MN and I put my resignation letter in July

I am a teacher in MN and I put my resignation letter in July but my current district is telling me I can't quit because I didn't put my notice in by April 1st. The district states that MN has a statue that lets them keep me employed until they find someone else. My district has 11 openings in SPED so they tell me my position probably won't be filled at all this year. I have accepted a new position and now I am not sure what to do. If I don't go back to my old district they will go after my teaching license.Please let me know if there is ANYTHING I can do.
