Would it be allowed in the state of florida to require as a term of employment or continued employment to have employees sign an agreement that would allow the company to require that the employee turn over his personal phone upon request to verify that he has not been calling or texting any of my customers?

I'm a small business owner. Looking for advice about

Hello, I'm a small business owner. Looking for advice about confidentiality. Staff members at the facility that I service talks about how much money I make to others and my employees which then had my employees either quit or question me. Also say since they are paying me x amount of dollars that they control what we do for the day and if not they will use someone else. Threats are very frequent.JA: No, you can ask a one off question to try things out. PayPal, Debitcard or credit card are all fine. Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?Customer: I have witnesses and i have met with the terminal manager but they are on the same team it seems. Have not contacted HR due to fear of losing contract.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: It is just an indefinite contract for our services to be used as needed.

I have been a nurse for 24 years and recently I switched

Hi, I have been a nurse for 24 years and recently I switched jobs. Since being at this hospital I have been under a tremendous amt of stress while in orientation trying to meet there strict rules such as " get your charting done by midnight" and chart other items every two hours while making rounds every two hours on 5 busy patients. We'll one night was a very busy and awfull night. My preceptor approached me about not being caught up on charting, and I firmly stated to her that "I take care of my patients first and chart later, but that I will get it done" since this day I have been constantly harassed by the manager through extended orientations, not being able to get charting done by midnight on 5 patients despite the fact I was busy all night ,no lunch brake and barely able to go to Bathroom. My preceptors had written several things stating ,that I was " tense, standoffish and that when they asked if I needed help ,I stated no and didn't say anything else( I was focused on getting charting done as instructed, so no time for small talk) this type of harrassment continued until , I was so stressed and was thinking of quitting , but decided to continue since I had signed a 3 year contract. To make a long story short, I filed a complaint with HR and explained how I was being treated and harassed and felt nothing I did was good enough, Although , I am an experienced nurse with several certifications , which intimidated the young and less experienced nurses. Well, I complained to HR in writing ,they decided to investigate. The HR personnel called me and left a message for me to return her call( which I did 3 days later because I was so sick and could not talk. I returned her call on the 3rd day and left message that I had been sick and to please give me a call at her convenience. Well, I received a certified letter stating that " my complaint was not valid" ( this is not the exact wording) and that they would except my resignation as we discussed verbally and in writing. Which was not true. She asked if I was resigning after she read the last part of the letter which state " I cannot continue to work in a hostile environment where I can't show autonomy and express my feelings of concern ". During the face to face meeting , I was asked if that meant I was resigning, and I stated no , I don't won't to resign , but didn't want to continue to work under harrassment and ongoing interrogation from them and the director of the unit . I also recorded this conversation. I did not resign and I verbally stated so...therefore I am required to turn in my badge by February 1st. How can I dispute this? The letter also contained a Fair Treatment form thar I could fill out and return in five days to request a meeting on one of three levels ( director, executive, ???) sorry ,I don't have the letter in front of me at this time ,but could not remember the third level. Thank you for any help you can offer . I am also considering hiring an attorney, just don't know which route to take.
