I am an hourly employee who oversees the operations of 25

I am an hourly employee who oversees the operations of 25 beauty salons. Most of the time while trying to spend time with my family I receive phone calls, emergencies and problems that have to be attended to. If, for example, I am trying to avoid OT at the request of the company and take a day off and then still have to answer calls and deal with problems should I be paid for the full day? It's a bit like being on call..

I worked as a contractor for a bank through an employment

i worked as a contractor for a bank through an employment agency. I was terminated when it was decided that I should not have worked for and gotten paid for overtime I submitted for work down out of the office. There was no written agreement concerning this. It was 180 hours. I complied, let them (the bank) keep my last 2 paychecks totaling 168 hours and I walked away. No more contact from employment agency until I received a letter saying that the bank did an audit and came up with their own count of hours I was overpaid. They state it is 500 hours and the employment agency claims that I owe them that money back, which is a significant sum that I do not have. How do I defend myself?

I feel that I am being mistreated at my job! I work with an

I feel that I am being mistreated at my job! I work with an employee with ADD and I have gone all out to make him feel comfortable most of the time. If he needs something for the office I buy it with no compensation because our boss will not spend any money on the employees except for the employee that has ADD, but to a certain extent, that I can see. Then, another employee was hired around 7 months ago, is paid more than me, and is rude, etc. to me. The building manager who is not my boss, has insulted me since the first week I was employed. I have no idea where to turn and am always afraid of being fired. I do my job, work overtime without compensation, clean up the garbage weekly, etc. not being compensated and have just had enough of being used! I don't want to quit my job without finding another one, but just want to have some comfort that I will receive unemployment if I were to be fired. I am so stressed, the work is overwhelming, and I am told things that I know aren't true about my work but I can't say 'how could that be' even though I know it's not true! I am so distressed and work so hard and not being paid what I should be paid. There only 4 people on the payroll and i get along with so many people that come into the office, etc. that I have no idea what is going on! It's all men and I feel that I am being discriminated against on a constant basis. Please let me know what I can do If I have to take action. As far as taking time for medical visits, it has to be approved, and if the other employees don't have plans, etc. I finally brought a note from my dentist to let my boss know that I have to go back. I don't take vacations, days off, or lunch until lately knowing that I need to just get out of the office. I told my boss that I was going to go home for Christmas since we hired a new employee but that was a problem, needed to be approved, and it was 6 months ahead of time that I let him know. Thank you so much.****************

I am in California.Three months ago a friend offered me a partnership for his small business:There was never any written contract, just a verbal agreement. There was an emphasis that I would be working sales / marketing. I have, somewhere, a newsletter where he states he is "putting on a business partner, not an employee."We verbally agreed I would work "about 20 hours a week" and receive a bi-weekly check of $400. I often worked overtime and was never compensated for that. I have kept a record of my work hours and tasks from start date to my last day.My work by month is broken down here:First month: I was getting training - learning the back end of the current website, taking calls, etc.Second month: I pushed for doing a website, but mainly had to still take calls, send e-mails, and work under a new title of: community outreach. I started working on the website during my off hours. I said his current model needed a redesign.Third month: I was trained for sales. This was during a time I was pushed to get clients. At most, in all of the hours I worked on making a website (which, I was told to focus on sales) I spent 90-95% of my off time making it.I am being sued for not handing the template website over.
