I have a question about bonuses. I resigned from my company

I have a question about bonuses. I resigned from my company July 1, 2016. According to HR, I will not be paid my bonus for June which I earned in June to be paid out at the end of July because I didn't work the entire month of July. I was paid my commissions for Jun on my July 15th check. Is this legal for my previous employer not to pay me the bonus that was earned.

I work small company that is a owned by a larger credit

I work for a small company that is a owned by a larger credit union. 3 months ago they promised me a new role in the company because we lost a contract with one of our clients; they stated they still wanted me onboard after the contract ended in August. In my meeting then they told me they will write up a new job description etc. A week ago; the president of my company was promoted, and another employee; then they told me they "changed their minds" about me continuing and said I was being laid off because of the lost contract. I have nothing in writing yet; but this upcoming Friday is suppose to be my last. I am 40 years old; I hope to find another position but this whole thing seems very unethical and perhaps illegal were it has been handled. Should I sue them? Do I have avenues for complaints etc?

I was a receptionist for a company and was fired for a conflict of interest. All I did was answer phones and make appointments for our service techs. I started dating a person from one of our vendors. I do not sell or make any decisions in the company, so how can this be a conflict of interest on my part.

Can employer 'retaliation' be based on me complaining to a

Can employer 'retaliation' be based on me complaining to a Board Member about being passed over for promotions(I was never specific about any of the protective characteristics) and the Board Member addressing my immediate supervisor to find out about my status, and my immediate supervisor removing me from the position 4 days after the board member spoke to her because I never addressed being discriminated again, just being passed over?Also, can employer 'retaliation' against me be based upon after I quoted statistics about a Board Meeting about the lack of Black male teachers in our school district, the next morning, a clerical worker told me that I did not have the support of the teachers union in the position that I applied for because a lady on the hiring committee was 'offended' by me quoting statistics from the Education Department about the lack of black male teachers in our Nation's schools, I was not given the promotion, and I never said I faced discrimination on my race, sex, gender, or any other 'protected' characteristic.

I work retail and recently my store manager was let go by

I work retail and recently my store manager was let go by loss prevention. I am second in command and my district manager asked if I wanted the store manager position I said I would consider it and he put me in as "acting" store manager and sent me to store manager training out of state and verbally poised me the permanent position. When I got back he met with me and said that the senior VP of stores did not want to promote me but would not tell me why. I'm confused because my store was the top three in the company last year and I have a proven track record with this company so I feel I am being punished because of my previous manager's mistakes. Is this discrimination? It's my understanding they are still look for a store manager and they are waiting for me to complete my 90 days as acting store manager but I have a feeling they have already offered it to another, they are just waiting.

I have been told that I will not be considered promotion

I have been told that I will not be considered for a promotion because I have been absent from work too much even though the time was approved FMLA time and documented. They also claim that I have missed deadlines and not produced the work volume for the position but my reviews do no indicate this nor have I been approached/counseled or reprimanded about missing any work. In fact, I worked overtime, weekends and nights to make sure that my work is done timely.

I need clarification of this clause in my current Employee Agreement, which I signed Oct. 2014. Is the 90 days notice enforceable? What if I give only provide a two-week notice and accept an offer from another company (non-competitive with current employer)? My prospective employer knows I currently work this company (same industry) and requires a copy of my EA before hire. Can I accept new company's offer by end of this week? I am in sales. I live in Dallas county, TX.ARTICLE IITERM OF CONTRACTSection 1.
