My job wants me to sign a write up for being insubordinate.

My job wants me to sign a write up for being insubordinate. During my accommodation request meeting last week with my manager, she said that I did not bring my allergies to her attention when she first started. It's been almost a year that I have been reminding her about my allergies and if she could please cooperate by not microwave her pop corn in the office, the aroma is over whelms the office and I get allergies from it. She does not think this is a reasonable accommodation, and also said that I just recently brought this up. I called her a liar. The district manager said this was disrespectful and she suspended me with out pay. I wrote a letter to HR and complained that I felt provoked at the meeting when she said I did not bring this up to her attention, when all along I been coming to her about my request. I also felt I was being suspended to avoid dealing with my request, and felt discriminated. Today HR meet with all of us, and I was presented a write up/final warning, next time I may be terminated, that I have behavior problems and that I disrespected the manager by calling her a bold face liar. I ask that if they could give me time to look into this and in the meantime if they could provide me a copy of the employee hand book that I signed. I would sign by next week.Then after back and forth conversation on the pop corn aroma issue, the Manager finally agreed not to use the microwave to cook her popcorn in the office when I am not at work to help with my allergies.I don't want to sign the write up, because I feel I did not do anything wrong by pointing out she did lie about the situation, but I am not sure if I should sign it before I get a chance to read the employee handbook. What policy did I not follow? Where does it say I cannot point someone lying?I wanted to make a simple statement on the document saying that I am only accepting this for receipt only, and that all I was doing was pointing out that I recall speaking to her about this when it first started happening, and that all I was doing is pointing out she was not truthful about our conversations regarding my allergies.How do I make a statement on this form without sounding like I am insubordinate, yet not agreeing with their assessment.All I was doing is making an accommodation request that is reasonable, and pointing out she was not being truthful and not following the accommodation request that was already in place.I called EEOC, just to look into this, but not sure if I should file a complaint since she finally agreed to follow the request on her own.

I am an owner operator leased contractor to Cheema trucking,

I am an owner operator leased contractor to Cheema trucking, and currently pay the company 14,400 per year to use their trailers and insurance. I went on a medical leave of absence for two months, but when I got back my pay checks were always short so I noticed they wrre taking too much out per month for my trailer agreement. 230 dollars to be exactThe payroll office said it was not a mustache. And that all drivers were emailed and told about the policy change.So, I never got one it agreed to an updated cost, is there a lawsuit here, and if so how muck couldn't win in claims. My busyness barely gets by on its own as is but now I have about 3000 per year more being deducted fromMy pocket and this is pretty much risking my livelihood

I had a medical bill get sent to a collection agency two

I had a medical bill get sent to a collection agency two years ago when I did not have health insurance. Now I have coverage but my provider requires a $100 deposit prior to service. My account now has over $2,500 in it but they will not give it back to me even though I have no outstanding charges with them. They tell me that they will hold this money and send it to the third party collection agency when they are sure they don't need it. I have full coverage, all deductibles and out of pocket met so anything I do or have done for 3 months has been completely covered. Is this legal? Seems like theft to me as I have a payment plan with the independent collection agency.JA: What state is this in? And when did the issue begin?Customer: Wisconsin, in May 2016JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No. I've done nothing but complain to the provider's financial department.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no
