I recently had to report an employer to the IRS and labor

I recently had to report an employer to the IRS and labor board because he was altering paychecks so that they would equal zero. I warned my coworkers to record their hours and pay and to take inaccurate stubs to the labor board because they company is not paying minimum wage and stealing wages. Can I get in trouble for this? I thought that not paying an employee their wages was wage theft.

I turned in my 2 week notice at my former job and then ended

I turned in my 2 week notice at my former job and then ended up filing an anonymous grievance with corporate against the director of nursing and administrator because of unsafe Staffing practices. A couple of days before my 2 weeks were over the understanding situation was so severe and dangerous that I ask the director of nursing to come in and she said "no, you can handle ir6", therefore i told her to cover my last few shifts because I would not be returning.This was a couple of months ago, and since then corporate went to the facility and investigated my claims over the course of a couple of weeks, interviewing staff and patients.I am now hearing from current employees that she is telling staff that I am the one who filed the grievance and I am not allowed back at the facility.Is it legal for her to ban me from visiting patients at the facility? Or even to put me on a no rehire list?

I work as a "part time" team lead (I have no real authority)

I work as a "part time" team lead (I have no real authority) for a company that is contracted with a supermarket chain, my Supervisor called me into a meeting with an assistant store manager for this chain, during the meeting he proceeded to reprimand me in front of this Assistant store manager and show me problems with the team I lead, after providing me with photos of mistakes one of my team did he told me he had no choice but to give me a written warning ( my second one for a team member I have no authority over).Can he do this? What about workplace confidentiality, this supervisor has told me of other personal issues that I really don't feel I needed to know about, he has altered my work reporting tablet which also came up in this meeting and accused me of entering false information.There are what I feel other work place violations with this company but are too many to ask.

I am from Bethlehem Pa and have questions about my past

Hi I am from Bethlehem Pa and have questions about my past employment. I am so scared of retaliation that I have not slept for 2 days. I have just got another text stating that she is consulting a lawyer, if I in anyway bring up what happened and am going to be sued. Problem is I filed for unemployment yesterday before the text. Everything that has happened to me is in my filing papers.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: PaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: This is my claim, I used a picture that was sent in group chat to prove to the boss that I don't want to work where illegal drugs are being used. I also suspect he has sabatoged a current job interview I went on. On May 29th I was bitten by a tick, was placed in the hospital on July 7th. I Informed the employer, he told me my job would be held. Have a Dr. note stating that I could not return until Aug 4th. During my employment at Dental office, was placed daily in uncomfortable situations. Extreme fits of yelling between Dr and another employee with constant use of profanity. When both were fighting I was placed in the middle of situations and treated badly. Said employee talked about her drug use on a daily basis, numerous occasions was asked if I would like to partake in drug use. When I became ill I asked if I could be laid off or fired because, my Medical Dr told me I would be out for more then 2 months, up to 3 months. Was told No, job would be held. Office did not offer any FLMA or sick pay. Before Aug 4th my job was posted on job boards, and interviews were being done in office. Was contacted by Dentist on 8/15 to see if I would be returning. I very nicely stated that I would be not returning. That the office did not meet my financial needs. I did not want to stir up trouble in the office about the situations listed above. On 8/16 I was texted a picture of my resume I had listed on Indeed, I feel it was a bulling attempt. There was no other reason for the Dentist to send me a picture of my resume, I sent back a picture of drug employee's drug problem. Upon which he showed said employee, and now have several texts berating me and asking me for an explanation. I do not feel safe in this office, working around illegal drug and fire arms being brought into the building.

I have been off work for a work for surgery. I got a note

I have been off work for a work for surgery. I got a note from my doctor on Thursday morning that excuses me from for another week because my doctor told me to be careful. On Friday, I received a call telling me they have dissolved my job into other areas. I was told by a lawyer who can't practice right now that I have a pretty good case against them. Do I have a case against them? Thank you in advance.
