Michigan-I gave and employee a raise from 10.75 to 11.15; the bookkeeper made and error and increased to 15.00. I told her the next payroll to decrease to 11.50 to try and appease the employee and not charge the employee the almost 600.00 in back pay and now the employee is threatening to go to the labor board if I don't give her the raise and the difference on the last check?

My employer has stopped paying my health insurance that I

My employer has stopped paying my health insurance that I have been promised. They paid for two months and then stopped without even telling me. I found out when I went for a physical. Also they owe me per diem money for a business trip I went on. Also I haven't gotten paid for my latest pay period. I am not sure how to recoup what's owed to me. Also I am not sure if I should keep working. It is a work from home job with an out of state employer.

I have many questions... My husband works as a Physician

I have many questions... My husband works as a Physician Assistant. He is employed as a full time salary employee, yet I notice he is being paid on an hourly bases. For example he is suppose to work 36 hrs weekly but if he is scheduled for 24, his employer do pays him for 36 but states my husband still owe them 12 hrs. Therefore, the following week they deduct the 12 hours from his check so if he works 48 hours he only gets paid for 36. By the same token, if they only scheduled him for another 24 hours they keep adding up the hours he owe. Also if he works the night shift on a Saturday night (the end of his pay period) they only pay him for the first 5 (7p to 12 midnight) and the additional 7 hours goes to the following week. This situation does create more owe hours. If he works more than 40 hours a week, sometimes 80 hrs per week he gets pay no overtime, just the hourly pay. Can an employee be both salary per contract and hourly per pay? The job only provides health insurance as a benefit (of which we pay the full amount, proximally $600.00 per week. They just take the money before taxes. They don't offer vacation time or sick leave pay. My husband is not a contractor, they control his time and schedule and also upon signing the contract they do not offer paid increases.My husband is a senior citizen that lost his last job (after 14 years of service) due to budget problems but when we found out they hire two new young PAs the week after he left, we sued them for age discrimination and were able to settled. Ever since, my husband had a hard time finding a job and our bills kept paling up; therefore, when this job came along he took it.We live in NY.My questions:Can they dock his pay the way they do?Aren't they suppose to pay part of his health insurance, at least my husband part?

I was hired in May, my offer letter states “Your PTO accrual

I was hired in May, my offer letter states “Your PTO accrual rate during the first three years of employment will be 5.23 hours per pay period”. The company was bought last year and is now in the process of switching over to the Owning companies benefits and I am being told that I will now only be eligible for 10 days of PTO per year for the next 5 years. Is the offer letter a binding contract? Do I have any recourse to get them to stand by the offer?

I have a 1099 employee that is required to submit his client

I have a 1099 employee that is required to submit his client list of how many people he has trained in order for me to process his payroll. Payroll is processed on a Sunday and then paid the following Friday. I told my contractor if his client list was no submitted by end of day Saturday I would not be able to process his payroll until the following pay period. Also, is it legal to give him the option of paying a late fee for processing his payroll to be paid in the current pay period? I will have to take extra time to do his payroll separately for not having his spreadsheet done on time.

I resigned from my previous employer on July 1, 2016. After

I resigned from my previous employer on July 1, 2016. After I quit, they apparently did not submit my termination to the payroll department and I continued to receive two extra direct deposits as an active employee. I called on August 8 and spoke with a lady who handles the termination paperwork to my 401k company, asking her when my termination paperwork would be turned in. She advised me that my final paycheck would be in two days on August 10th, so I assumed they still owed me money. I was a salaried employee. Now, they are demanding the money back in full. Am I required to pay them back? If so, can they refuse small monthly payments? I reside in the state of Pennsylvania.
