I'm off on an L&I injury and my employer terminated my
I'm off on an L&I injury and my employer terminated my insurance benefits without notifying me. I found out my benefits had been terminated on 7/27/16 when I went to the pharmacy to pick up a prescription. They advised me to call HR. When I did I was told my FMLA expired on 5/21/16. I was not notified of this either. I called my Health insurance provider that day and asked about Cobra and they informed me that they had just mailed the paper work for Cobra on 7/26/16. I still have never received a single letter or anything from my provider indicating my benefits have been terminated. When I spoke with HR they informed me I still had PTO time (91 hours) remaining and a couple of sick hours. I explained that I has signed a form for L&I asking to have my benefits supplemented. HR then referred me to L&I.I called the manager of L&I and explained the situation to him. He then drafted an email to HR and payroll asking if I could please have my benefits reinstated and sent them a copy of the form I had signed at the beginning of my L&I claim. About a week later it was decided that "no" they were not going to retroactively reinstate my benefits because "someone" had made the decision somewhere alone the way to pay me a little extra every pay check so they could not reinstate benefits even though I had a signed form and remaining PTO hours.Does this sound right to you??

I would like to know if I'm entitled to my PTO that I
HelloI would like to know if I'm entitled to my PTO that I earned? I was let go from my job of over 1 year without severence pay package or my PTO paid. Corporate came in and let the DON ( with severence pay package and a letter telling her not to repeat any incidents that had occured at the facility) Administrator and I (Nursing Supervisor) go. The reason they said they needed to let us go was cause they wanted new management.I think the real reason is that a few months back I'm sure you saw in the news about a patient that died at a nursing home from being outside in the sun?
Our company transitioned in June, 2013 to a third party
Our company transitioned in June, 2013 to a third party Professional Employment Services provider. The time system and the payroll system are not fully integrated and this resulted in nearly all of the 11 salaried supervisors or managers having incorrect balances of PTO available.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: The system was not deducting the days off we took. So now many of us have 2-4 weeks of negative PTO levels available and the company wants to freeze any time off until each person's PTO balance is back in the positive. I am wondering if there is a statute of limitations on how far back they can require us to pay them back for their error.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not officially, Off the record,I spoke with a friend who is an attorney. She suggested I check with DOL, Wages and Hour divisionJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Probably not for now. He or she may have other questions for me.

I am an executive of a large healthcare provider in Arizona.
I am an executive of a large healthcare provider in Arizona. I was escorted out of my office on Thursday July 14th and was told it was due to breaking policy in relation to a third party vendor. Over the next few days I realized that I had inadvertantly not reported gifts from the vendor on my Conflict of Interest Statement and therefore had broken policy. On the 21st of July, after not hearing a word from the company, I sent a letter of resignation to the Human Resource Department. On July 26th they announced my resignation to the staff, and cleaned out my personal belongings from my office and arrangements have been made for me to pick them up. They owe me for 3 days of work July 11-14th and my accrued PTO which is approx 180 hours. I expected them to pay me via electronic deposit on today's paycheck. As I understand it, State law states that they must pay employee within 7 days of termination (resignation ??) or end of pay period which ever is soonern However, that did not happen. My questions are as follows. Are my rights the same as a terminated employee or does the fact that I resigned change my rights?
I have a question about bonuses. I resigned from my companyView more employment law questions
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.
