hello, I was laid off January 31st. During my tenure I was promised that if I referred an employee and they stayed 120 days that I would receive a referral bonus. I have several emails from the company that the bonus would be paid to me. It shouls have been paid to me on January 20th approx. when I reached out agin to be sure when to expect it, the women said she was sorry there was an error and it did not get in the correct payroll time frame due to her error and she was sorry but they would pay it to me on February 15th, and they were sorry for the mix up. In the meantime we got laid off due to a reduction in the staff. And today they are telling me since I am no longer employed since jan 31st they will not pay me ???? PLease help

I am hiring a live-in nanny to help me raise my newborn

I am hiring a live-in nanny to help me raise my newborn child. The Nanny will be living at the house full time rent-free. I understand that I have to pay the nanny minimum wage as required by law, and I must keep a log of the hours that she has worked in order to calculate her pay each month. If the nanny is required to be available 24 hours a day to take care of the newborn baby, then am I required to pay her for the full 24-hours per day? For instance, if certain nights she only has to get up for two hours to take care of the baby and then she goes to sleep the rest of the night, do I just mark her hours worked as two hours for that night? Or do I have to pay her for the full 12 hours of the night since she was required to be available all night in case the baby wakes up?Do I have to deduct social Security, medicare, and income taxes from her paycheck just like any employer deducts taxes from an employee? Or are domestic employee tax deductions different?Do I also have to match and pay Social Security and Medicare taxes for her just like a regular employer has to do for employees?

I took a sign-on bonus at work. I signed a contract stating

Hello. I took a sign-on bonus at work. I signed a contract stating I would pay it back if I quit. However, shortly after starting I changed my mind. I have e-mails to payroll and HR. I called and asked them to stop the check. Noone would help me. They just called my manager who told me if i dont want to take it, I should quit then becasuse they didnt want to train someone who didnt want to stick around I explained I didnt want it because of the money hanging over my head but she intimidated me into taking it... can i do anything now? I want to quit.

I will over simplify - If payroll determines there has been

I will over simplify - If payroll determines there has been a payment error can they force me to pay it back in huge lump sum which will cause me to lose my home and possible declare bankruptcy? Worth noting - I have been employed with a school district as a teacher for numerous years. I recently left for 6 months to take care of my elderly parents and returned. When I returned I had to re-apply and submit all credentials including teaching certificate, resume, references and official college transcripts. Before my first paycheck, I looked in our online employee system and saw a some entries that appeared incorrect. I asked our school bookkeeper who referred me to HR. HR referred me to payroll. I sent an e-mailed inquiry (I have both soft and hard copy) to payroll and copied HR. I never heard any thing back, therefore I was confident all was in order and they had re-calculated my pay based on previous experience (I had worked for the district for 5 years from 1996 to 2001, but had not previously been compensated for those years of service). Now they say I am over-paid and for the next 6 months they will not only pay me at a lessor rate, but will also garnish $497 gross per pay period (almost $1000/month) until the end of the school year (8/15).

I was promoted at my job last year june and the pay

I was promoted at my job last year june and the pay difference started in july but the made a mistake in the pay resulting in about 35,000 over payment between july 2016 and first pay period of Jan 2017. Now i need to pay them back but the option is a lump sum or a specific amount by the first pay in feb. They wanted every thing back by dec 2017. This however is not convenient for me, i am offering to pay all back by middle of next year. I haven't signed the agreement to start paying back since the amount is not going to work well for me. What options do i have ?
