This is not spoken about and HR denies it.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I am afraid to request a meeting to request a review for fear that my severence pay may be retracted.

This is regarding the Los Angeles Fair Chance for Hiring

This is regarding the Los Angeles Fair Chance for Hiring Initiative ordinance that went into effect Jan 22, 2017.- The Initiative applies to any “employer” that is located or doing business in the City of Los Angeles and employs 10 or more employees.- An employee means any person who performs at least two hours of work on average each week in the City of Los Angeles and who qualifies as an employee entitled to minimum wage under California's minimum wage law.- ABC Company is located in the city of Beverly Hills, and employs at least 10 employees who work at least 2 hours per week, e.g. meeting clients, in Los Angeles. Is ABC Company covered under this law even if new applicants would be working in the Beverly Hills office only (since it already meets the 10+ employee requirement who work more than 2 hours in LA) or does it depend on whether each new applicant will be working 2 or more hours in LA?- Does it apply to contractors that ABC Company hires, if they will be working in LA?

I have relocation agreement stating that if I leave after 12

I have relocation agreement stating that if I leave after 12 months I must pay 100% of the benefits and if I leave after year 12 and before year 24 months I must pay 50%.In regards ***** ***** the agreement states "I further agree that the Company may, to the extent permitted by law, deduct from my pay any amounts due to me upon my voluntary resignation or termination for cause as partial or total payment of reimbursement of Relocation Expenses. I agree that, in the event such amounts are insufficient to cover total reimbursement, I will provide the Company with the additional funds required for the reimbursement within 30 days of such termination of employment."I am planning to leave after 20 months due to a pending sale of 1/3 of the business and a reorganization / outsourcing of the remaining business.Based on these changes I would have not moved 20 months ago.

I live and work in a small office in PA for a large company.

Hi-I live and work in a small office in PA for a large company. My company is based in NJ and we are going through a re-org. They will be offering some people positions, the remaining ones will have to re-apply for whatever available jobs are left. The company does have an existing severance policy, but we are hearing they are trying to do everything possible NOT to have to pay out on this. For those of us in PA, our fear is that we will be given jobs located in NJ. If we refuse to move and take these NJ jobs- can they deny paying us severance pay?

I live in the state of, where I work as a telecom/network

I live in the state of KY, where I work as a telecom/network technician for an out of state professional staffing service called Outsource Telecom LLC. They have had me on a temp-perm contract with a company called BlackBox for the last 3 years. Recently, I have been put in some situations that are flat out uncalled for. My lead from BlackBox is to assign me tickets daily and I am to dispatch and complete these tickets. Recently, I have been unable to get into contact with my lead, I have been trying to get ahold of him via phone calls, texts, emails etc to no avail. No one seems to want to answer, as I had a problem where I was scheduled to be in 2 places on high priority work on the same day around the same time so it was impossible. After a week of attempts, he finally got it covered. Now, I've been put on another contract where I am not receiving anything that I need to complete my work, I am being told that I have a deadline to meet by Friday or I'll be fired, yet they all know the work can't be completed without me having the proper supplies. I have contacted my actual employer Outsource about all of this, (even in the past some of the same things) and they disregard it and tell me I need to talk with my Blackbox lead. I feel I am being targeted, and set up to fail. This all seems to have gotten worst after I "outshined" one of the Blackbox team members. After that, my lead from Blackbox will hardly ever take my calls, will not provide me with needed materials, will not get me the things/help I need when I need it, constantly rejects my attempts to contact etc. I can't do my job anymore because I don't have any means to do it! As I don't want to have on my record I was fired (even though it would be NO fault of my own) I am thinking about just leaving the company all together. My concern is, would I be able to draw unemployment until I can find work? Either way, because of the lack of help and needed materials, I will not be able to complete my work by friday and I will either be fired or I can leave due to the feeling of retaliation after "outshining" the actual Blackbox employee. I can't seem to understand KY unemployment, and i've never used it before. Also, would it seem I would have any rights to sue Outsource for not providing me with any assistance regarding THEIR client?
