Recent Quitting Without Notice questions

I was written up and it's clear I'm being pushed out. My

I was written up and it's clear I'm being pushed out. My managers write has inaccurate performance numbers and other discrepancies. I haven't signed or reached out to Hr yet. I found a new job and want to start right away. Meaning resign without two weeks notice. Typically when you resign they don't make you stay for two weeks but I literally have panic attacks everyday working here. I can't do it anymore. Do i sign and give two weeks. Do dispute the write and show proof of the actual numbers from our finance system then sign. Or show she is out to get me with all the evidence I have? If I could wave a magic wand I would just want to go away tomorrow, not sign and be good moving forward. I don't know what to do. I have enough proof on her but I don't want the drama.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ArizonaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At will full time Is this conversation public?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Connect with me who?

My former employer just sent me a vile email, which i think

My former employer just sent me a vile email, which i think is in retaliation for not wanting to assist him with tax fraud. He indicated in the email that I "screwed" with his books, which I did not. We used QB - I quit without notice on December 7th because on December 5th, he received a notice from the IRS requesting an in-person audit of his 2014 taxes. i was not employed with him until October 2016. He told me to go into QB and add some of the "cash" customers to the 2014 QB file. Since I wasn't there that long, I didn't discover the additional fraud that he commits - misclassification of an employee. he pays a gentleman a check without withholding taxes and he does not 1099 at the end of the year. This man's books were a mess. Between the 2014 audit notice, learning that as of December 7th he hadn't even filed his 2015 taxes, and just seeing what a mess 2016 was gearing up to be, I left. I did not harm any of his records. Can he sue me? and honestly, why would he want to bring his fraudulent records into court?!JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MassachusettsJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: at will, no contract, I was put on payroll service vs. 1099 and I worked between 9-16 a weekJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no, I don't think so

I worked for an employer for approximately 8 months. I quit

Hi, I worked for an employer for approximately 8 months. I quit without notice as I was experiencing ongoing bullying from my manager and. Felt it was a toxic work environment. This even started to affect my health as my anxiety levels got very high while working there.I started a new job this week. My former employer has emailed me asking for me to all him to tie up loose ends. I explained that I would be happy to answer any questions but have limited access to phone and email. I also communicated several times that it would be easier to touch base by email. He has now threatened to get in tough with my HR to make arrangements if needed.Can he legally contact my current employer?

My employer considers me a sub-contractor. I am a heating

My employer considers me a sub-contractor. I am a heating and airconditioning technician. They assign me jobs and I have to drive where ever they say. When I took the job it was supposed to be Tucson only so I relocated to Tucson. Now most of the work is in Phoenix. The work is inconsistent and I barely get by. I quit without notice on 5/31. They are now telling me I have to give them 30 days notice. They sent me a copy of the agreement which says I have to pay $15,000 to them if I don't give them 30 days notice. I agreed to work for the 30 days but told them I can't drive up to Phoenix because I can't afford the gas. Now they are telling me if I don't take the jobs in Phoenix they will take me to court. Additionally, I had a co-worker (also a dub-contractor) who quit a few months ago. They did not treat that person like this. I'm the only sub-contractor left in the area. I'm not sure what my obligation is here. Any advice is appreciated.

I have a question about a job that I recently resigned from.

Hello! I have a question about a job that I recently resigned from. The owner/manager moved to a different state (over 30 hours away) and hired me as the "manager". However, I was not given any responsibilities as a manager...had no access to any of the business bank accounts (even though I was expected to run payroll), have emails stating that I was not allowed to make ANY decisions without consulting with her, and she never communicated directly to me....only through other coworkers. When she began insisting that I or someone else at the office needed to forge her name on payroll and banking checks and documents, I and two other employees quit without notice. When we quit, we took the folders in the unsecured filing cabinet (ALL employees had access) that had our social security numbers and drivers licenses, applications, and certifications. Those folders had a lot of personal information (but no performance reports or payroll records or anything like that) and were completely unsecured and with three of us leaving, we had no idea who would have access to that information. Now, our former employer is holding our last paychecks and telling us it was illegal to take that information. Is it? And can she legally hold our paychecks hostage? We live in the state of PA. We did realize after the fact that our i9 and w4 were in the folder and we emailed an electronic copy directly to the owner.

An employee quit without notice on Wednesday afternoon(in california). Employee didnt come to pick up check but called saturday to have it sent by mail. This would be after 72 hours...penalties?The employee also demanded to be paid for vacation pay. They only worked 6 weeks. The Company handbook which was signed grants employees vacation after 12 months. It showed they had vacation pay on their paystub but it was a clerical error. Am I liable for this?
