My employer at my salon told two Hispanic workers that they

My employer at my salon told two Hispanic workers that they couldn't speak Spanish in her salon. The employer also told an African American worker that she needed to go home and straighten her hair because it was pulled back in a bun in its natural state. She has not provided the two youngest salon workers parking passes and they have to pay to park with no reimbursement. Could this be a discrimination issue here?

Hello, I was recently let go from my job and asked to sign a release and waiver of liability relevant to the "separation". I accepted the offer and signed at the time the payment was made. 5 days later my former employer decided to rescind the offer and is giving me a deadline to sign a release and waiver for a significantly lower amount. Is this legal in Colorado?

My husband has been waiting for reimbursement of expenses

My husband has been waiting for reimbursement of expenses for months now, he submitted them and they were approved by his management right away. He spoke to his manager who said he was going to follow up and he also spoke to the administrative staff that audit the receipts before they are paid. He was told that it took so long because they were short staffed, but they would be approved. They have not been paid, it has been 4 - 5 pay cycles now. He works in the state of NJ.

My company reimbursed my college tuition last year in the

Hi Pearl My company reimbursed my college tuition last year in the amount of $6070. I know the IRS only allows $5250. The company issued my 1099 for the full amount rather than deducting the $5250 like they did the previous year. Will I be exempt from paying taxes on the $5250 even though they included it on a 1099?JA: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?Customer: Yes, I am no longer with that company. I emailed to inquire as to why the full amount was on the 1099. The Controller replied back that I would be able to take the deduction when I filed but I don't think he is right.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I never had an employment agreement with the company but all that did were "at will".JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, I just want to make sure that I am not taxed on the allowed amount and what I need to do to make sure it is right. Thanks!

I have a small group (6 EEs), and we offer group health

I have a small group (6 EEs), and we offer group health insurance to all employees at no cost to the employees. We have 2 EEs who are Medicare eligible, and have waived group coverage, enrolled in Parts A and B, obtained a Medicare Supplement and Part D Rx Plans. We have been reimbursing the EEs for their costs, as we treat the under 65 employees the same. Are we "legal" in reimbursing the employees? Thanks so much. ScottJA: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?Customer: We don't have an HR department as we are a small company, and we have thought that we should include this documentation in our Employee Handbook, but have not done so yet.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full time.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No.

2/8/2017 I have a RMA account with the company I retired

Hello, 2/8/2017I have a RMA account with the company I retired from. They recently changed the company who handles the reimbursements. There was a month of transition time that we could not submit claims to either companies. During this tranistion period, the old company sent the remainder of funds from 2016 distributions that were left in my account to the new company. So, the new company has my RMA funds that remained in my account at the end of 2016, plus funds my employer deposited in my account for 2017 claims.Now the new company will not reimburse us for the bills we received during this transition month.The original company would not take claims after December 1st, 2016 and the new company would not accept claims until January 1st, 2017 . I received bills totalling close to $2,000. of out of pocket costs in December for date of medical services in Oct and Nov. The original company says I didn't send the claims in to them for payment before the 1st of December, and the new company says they can't process bills for medical services I recieved before December 1st.How in the world could I send them claims for bills I didn't recieve until after the cut off date?I don't understand why the new company will not reimburse for services rendered in Oct and Nov 2016 out of the 2016 remaining funds they received.What are my options in fighting for them to reimburse me for the services incurred in Oct. and Nov. ?Thanks for your help!
