I work in CT as a hospital pharmacist and we were bought out

I work in CT as a hospital pharmacist and we were bought out by a company called Prospect. We have subsequently had a substantial reduction in hours, and last week we had to "choose" new positions in order of seniority. I got reduced from 34.5 hr a week (mostly day shifts, some 2nd shift 3pm-8pm shifts) to 16 hr a week (now third shift, 11pm to 7 am thrs and fri nights), because I was last on their seniority list. My question, however, is about an employee who was higher than me on the seniority list but was only a 14 hour/week employee. I honestly always thought she was per diem, because some weeks she didn't even work at all, she has another job. She took a 32 hour position, and there were only 4 40-hour week positions, one 32 hour/week position, 4 twenty-something hours/week positions, and one 16 hour position (the one I ended up stuck with). Is there anything I can do about this?

My partner and me are operating a Small Group Home and have

Hello, my partner and me are operating a Small Group Home and have Adult Foster Care license. We had a contract with Area Agency on Aging 1B to provide AFC services for Medicaid Waiver participants. About a month ago we were placed on probation for 60 days. We reviewed Area Agency's policy on Probations and found that the Agency did not follow proper procedure. We also feel that we were placed on probation for the wrong and discriminatory reasons. We did not get an appeal form with the letter informing us about probation, but replied via e-mail, which was left unanswered. Yesterday we received a notice of termination of the contract, without reason, while we are still during the probation period (this is "at will" contract) but in Policies it is said that the termination notice will state the reason for termination and include an appeal form. We requested an appeal form via e-mail. We would like the decision about termination and probation to be reversed, what would be our best course of actions?

I work for a company that is under government contract, they

I work for a company that is under government contract, they said that i am salary exempt stateside pay but not overseas. For 3 months I was in Yuma AZ attending school and working for company pending sec clearance to go to Afghanistan. Then the company shipped about 20 of us back home without pay pending clearance update. But during our time in Yuma they made us put 120 hrs on our timesheet but only paid us for 80 hours. They also had us 2 to a hotel the whole time but govt paid them per diem per person and as many contracts i was on I never stayed in a room in transition with another employee for 3 or any nbr of months. What to do about this issue and get my pay.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? PayPal, Debitcard or credit card are all fine.Customer: not real estateJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

Can an employer take per diem out of an employee's base pay,

Can an employer take per diem out of an employee's base pay, then pay it back to them as non-taxable. So instead of paying them their $20/hour + per diem, they took the per diem out of the $20/hour and then paid it back to them. Therefore, the employee paid their own per diem. And this was a FEMA job!It doesn't seem fair to make an employee pay their own per diem and play it off as the non-taxable income was a great deal for them.

I am a mental health therapist and I have been at my work place since 1995. I plan on retiring on 6/30/17. My boss ask me to on per diem starting Jan. 2017. He said I might not keep up with my stats while I am closing cases.I have over the last several months been up and down with my stats due to the unpredictability of some of my clients. This happens to all of my colleagues from time to time. I am 68 years old and have only 6 months to go. I am worried that my income will be diminished right before retirement. Thanks for hearing my concern.

My employer is withholding my reimbursement for per diems

My employer is withholding my reimbursement for per diems and travel expenses. There is a written agreement when we hired on, that we would be reimbursed upon turning in receipts on the 5th and 20th of each month. However, they gave notice to my subordinates and myself (the day before reimbursement) that they refuse to reimburse the owed money, until receipts from previous statements are turned in. Is this something that I should pursue with an attorney?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I live in Oregon, but my company is based in California.JA: 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: Not that I can think of at this time.

I was accused of something for a business I work for. They didn't fire me but he said he has nowhere I can work at right now. I work as a Security guard and the place I was working at told my boss I can no longer work at that location because of an incident that took place and no criminal evidence has been found to support the blame that has been placed on me. I currently have nowhere to work because of this incident and I feel I have been wrongfully accused of something I did not do. All I want is justice.
