I'm 57 yrs old & have worked for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage

I'm 57 yrs old & have worked for Wells Fargo Home Mortgage for 26 yrs, part-time evenings. I work 3 evenings, a total of 21 hrs/week. I have full benefits (i.e. 401k match, vacation, profit share, full medical). Along with my base salary, I receive 15% shift differential. I am also eligible for severance pay, which is capped at 25 yrs of service at 16 mths. Approx mid-July, we were informed that the dept will no longer exist, therefore, we are being transitioned into a 40 hr week, Mon-Fri. The position is considered lateral, but is an entry-level data entry position. We currently are titled as Loan Originators & duties included processing, closing, & underwriting duties. We also assisted with borrower's questions and/or concerns regarding their loan process. Shouldn't they have offered us a choice between displacement with severance and continued employment, since the work schedule & position are totally different?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Minnesota.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Of the 8 people affected by this, 3 are 55+ & have 25+ yrs service.

I am a sole proprietor of an Adult Family home. I have 4 full-time caregivers. 45 days ago I hired and began training a young woman who now reveals that she is pregnant and will require a scheduled C-section delivery and mandatory 12 week recovery period. I cannot operate without the position filled. She will not be able to complete the job description (heavy lifting, pt transfers). I want to dismiss her and find somebody who can commit to a year of service.

I am an educator and i am being promoted to administration

hi. i am an educator and i am being promoted to administration (NYC DOE). before i am approved they need to do another background check. the reason i am concerned is that my wife called the police on me once. she was acting crazy and wanted to take the children. i simply sat in my kitchen with my frightened baby, and said that she can do what she wants, but not get in a moving vehicle with our children. angered, she called the police. they came. i explained that i was afraid of what she would do and did not want getting in a vehicle with my children. they talked to her and took some information, namely that she and i were arguing, that she wants to leave me and me to leave the house, and that she wanted nothing further from the police. i did not do anything, was not charged and was told i was well within my rights to have my children at home; i mean i was just trying to protect them from her. there is however an incident report out there and i am stressing about it.

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.

I have an age discrimination case. Perhaps, not a strong

I have an age discrimination case. Perhaps, not a strong one. I resigned from my company,because I was getting abusive treatment, and did not want to endure the humiliation.After resigning, I asked for unemployment and received it.Now, the case is trying to settle. My company's defense is that I quit, and they said I wasa "valued" worker. I am wondering if this adds up. Why would a company readily acceptthe resignation of a "valued" worker, and then give him unemployment for a resignation.I understand that employees who resign are often pressured to resign, rather than havea "termination" status on their record. They could they get unemployment. But "valued"workers would be encouraged to stay on. I see my company's stance as a contradiction,an evidence of lying. Please respond.

I have just received a third written warning from my

I have just received a third written warning from my manager. In the write up, it mentions an email from July 19th. The manager has only been an employee for 2 weeks. I believe I am being targeted to be fired by the assistant lead. I am a 64 year old woman and the assistant is a 50 year old man. Everything was fine until he was hired last October. He ask one of my coworkers to spy on the rest of us and tell him what was said about him. I said to a coworker that I thought he was incompetent. That lead to someone keying my car twice on the same day. Nothing was done. I did file a Police report. Anyway, what can I do when the company fires me?
