I live in Texas and the company that I work was raided from the FBI, because I am a manager the FBI interrogate me for hours. My boss has become paranoid and has told some of my associates not to talk to me, because he believes that I am an informant of the FBI, he took some of the access of some departments away from me and is telling my associates that I don't longer doing my position. I want to resign it has been a nightmare, that last week I went to the hospital with chest pain. My question is because of the hostile environment I am going to quit, and file unemployment, have witnesses, and Doctors visits to prove. Should on my resignation letter provide the reasons, I am resigning.

I have been employed for 8 years at an assisted living

I have been employed for 8 years at an assisted living facility in vermont and have accumulated over 350 hours of CTO. I had asked whether or not I can cut down on hours due to many issues with staffing and having to work six and a half days a week many times ( I am salaried). The answer is yes however they have to terminate my existing position and per policy only pay me 180 hours and lose the remaining balance. Is there a statue that protects employees from that happening?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: VermontJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: at willJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

I've been working for my stepdad for over 31 years. He has always promised I would take over company if I just did this one thing. But everytime I accomplish this goal a new one arises I am now 46 years old and he has bought a new company which he is using my state license to run. Every 3 to 4 weeks he comes in with new rules I feel like he can't remember the last agreement & I'm only being treated this way because I'm only a stepchild while he has biological kids with my mother. He intimidates me while benefiting from license.

If an employee has to take off work for medical reasons and

If an employee has to take off work for medical reasons and claim short-term disability benefits (short-term disability is provided by the company), can the employer use that employee's FMLA leave, as well, to cover time off? I had to take short-term disability leave due to medical issues that I have (I also have a son with medical issues that I provide primary care for); I was paid for this leave. Now the company is saying that I have no more FMLA leave to take because they used it to cover my absences. Can a company use short-term disability AND FMLA toward my absences?
