I was toldby a human resourdes oerson that i was indeed
I was toldby a human resourdes oerson that i was indeed eligible for an incentive payout when i retired from my job. I workeed for 3 months in 2015 and retired in March 2015, in my interview it was epressly staed to me that becaaude i worked those three months that the incentive payout was to be prorated and that i would receive the incentive bonus for those three months that i had worked. When the deadline for receiving that bonus passed and no money was automatcally deposited in my account i inquired as to why i did not receive said bonus i was then told that i had to be employed by april 1 to be eligible. I ahve reached out to the head of Human resources for my division and was then told again that since I was no employed by april 1 I was not eligible. What are my rights concerning this?
I've recently retired. However before i made that decision,
I've recently retired. However before i made that decision, i was having an issue with the director of the department. My son passed away October 2014. Upon my return to work. She was treating me different, i let things go, I didnt address it with higher ups. In February 2015, she gave me my evaluation. It was perfect said I was doing good, i could take some classes etc.. i then asked about the revenue manager position she looked at me funny said she didnt have anyone that fit the position. Rougly two weeks later she had a meeting set up with myself and a human resource rep and said my coordinator job was ending it was time for the department to move on. I was given a choice of taking a lessor paying position or leaving the hospital and taking a "deal" where i would receive all my vacation time and the hospital would match my pay for the number of years i was there. If another position i was qualified for opened i would get first pick. She had a managers position posted and the job description was my coordinator job word for for except she added bachelor degree required. At first i was going to take the package, then i took the lessor paying position. I had been with the hospital since 1993, i really wasnt ready to retire. I still did everything i had been doing while coordinator, plus anything else she requested. I felt like i was showing i was the better person. She had someone in mind for the position which i later figured out who had no supervisory experience, no billing experience nor the bachelor degree she had on the job description. She and i did have one incident where she asked me to do something and there was a process in place already and i did not do it as timely as she wanted. She got a little nasty and i asked her in all the years (5 or 6) i believe how many times had i not completed a taskshe asked me to do. She said two which was this incident. In all the years i worked under her it was not until she decided she wanted to promote this other person that all this began. I went to personnel told them what happen, told them she was treating me different. They advised me to talk to her which i did, told her she treating me different since the passing of my son she said well you were crying one day and we didn't know what to do. I told her if i can't deal with what is happening in the office i will ask to go home. To make this novel short.. she left the hospital for another position, the person she was "preparing" for the manager's position was given the position by the assistant admin who was new and was not aware of what was happening. I do not hold any animosity towards the girl who was given the position, the associate administrator emailed me when i handed in my retirement notice and said that she had heard nothing but good things about me since the director left. All those things she heard since that director left i had been doing for 23 years i had been there. This has left a huge impact on my life. Im 56, i took early retirement. I didn't feel like i could stay any longer. I was never reprimanded im all the years i was there. On my exit interview questions are asked more about what the company can do to improve process's for the future of the organization.. I've been debating on talking to a lawyer, I'm still grieving my son which will be the rest of my life, it did not effect my job performance, work kept me going, i've looked for other jobs i just dont have that drive any longer.
My mother submitted her retirement notice to her retailer
My mother submitted her retirement notice to her retailer employer several weeks ago. She's 76 and, as I understand it, can apply medicare part B within 8 mos (Special Enrollment Period) of her end of service. However, the enrollment info I foundonline says she needs to call or come into an SS office, and provide a CMS-L564 ”Request Information” from her employer. She has not received this information yet from her employer (due to snow conditions in the Northeast she was told to takepersonal days rather than commute to a store without customers), and the HR 800# ***** a recorded message saying they were closed. Tomorrow, however, the roads will be clear enough to be at the work location 3pm to 11pm shift. It's also her lastscheduled day of work and the last day of her employer medical coverage. I'm concerned that she will not have any medical coverage starting Thursday. I don't have much faith that she'll get the CMS L564 form when she arrives at work and even if she does, shewouldn't be able to take action on it with the social security office. I'm wondering if I need help her secure something via Affordable Healthcare to bridge the coverage gap, or if she is eligible (although I'd cringe at the cost of that...) Anyinformation you could supply to help me sort through the issue would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Well, I did it...spoke to manager and told him I would be HR
Well, I did it...spoke to manager and told him I would be HR THE 3 month notice they request for retirement notice. He said Ilm really going to kiss you but he know because of sins disability. I must retire Dec. 31 when I will be 59. He wants to go to management and see if any layoffs are planned ..he feels this would at least give me some type of financial cushion. Is this appropriate?

I am 63 yrs old. Early retirement will be costly as normal
I am 63 yrs old. Early retirement will be costly as normal retirement for me is 66 yes. In the summer & fall of 2011, there was concern among associates as to who would be fired next. One associate expressed that people with 25 years or more of service are targets & advised me that if my manager began giving me reason to believe my work was not meeting the bank's needs that I should retire to avoid loosing my pension. That evening several associates who do not work in my unit were on the elevator to go home for the evening & they were discussing that several people either took early retirement or fired that day. As they exited the elevator, I made a comment to a woman beside me questioning if the bank is targeting people with 25 years or more. Her response was "it is not about years of service, the question is can anybody do that job.". My question was escalated to management & I was put on verbal warning about spreading rumors. The warning was removed a few months later according to my manager. Two more associates in my unit voluntarily left due to excessive work load. We were told we had capacity to absorb the 2 positions. More work was added to my desk. I turned in my early retirement notice. It was announced & the very next day, management sent out an email saying my position plus one other would be open for hiring. This left me wondering if management rather than offering. me a package, coerced me into leaving. It was obvious that we did not have enough people to do the work. Do I have a valid concern?
I work for a company in Florida that has a policy which says
I work for a company in Florida that has a policy which says that an individual is not entitled to the company's bonus pay out for the previous year if the individual is not an employee on the day of the pay out. The bonus covers work performed, January 01, 2011- December 31, 2011, the employee worked the entire time period and received "exceeds expectations" performance ratings, but she has submitted a resignation/retirement notice effective January 31, 2012, the bonus pay out is March 1, 2012. Is it legal for the company to do this ?
My husband works as a janitor for the pat fourteen years atView more employment law questions
My husband works as a janitor for the pat fourteen years at the local high school in WI and is one year away from retirement. Two years ago he had heart surgery to replace a valve. Since his surgery her has some memory issues that his employer and boss are clearly aware of. For the past year he has reason to beleive his boss is bullying him into early retirement. He was written up a few weeks ago for the boss finding one hair on the bathroom floor that he had just cleaned. The boss handed out wage statement summaries the other day and stated "here's everyone's notice that we are eliminating all the janitor's and outsourcing the jobs so no one can retire". It was not a notice at all just a simple wage statement they receive every year. Also, he works an 8 hour shift with a 30 min un paid lunch break. My husband is deaf in one ear and it is very conforting to relax for 30 minutes to read a book. Because he reads at the table, his boss wrote him up for lack of communication. His boss claimed; it is unacceptable for him to read during lunch because as his supervisor, he may need the lunch time to communicate job resposibilities that he nneds him to focus on. The comments form the boss are usually in a group setting and not one on one. My husband feels the hostiility and is beginning to lack confidence in his ablities to perform his job properly without receiving a negative reaction from his boss. Since his lunch break is unpaid, what is the WI law regarding unpaid lunch breaks? I thought for every 5 hours worked the employee receives 30 minutes of uninterupted time.Also, we need some direction on how to handle the bullying. Attempting to get support and take some action, my husband reported his concerns to his Union Steward, who happens to be the bosses cousin; nothing has been done to resolve the issue. In fact, the bullying semed to get worse after the greivence was filed.We are at a loss and do not know how to approach the issue to get it resolved. Your thoughts are appreciaed!
