Apparently someone at my job filed a complaint against my company. We were working 13 hour 20 minute shifts. 1 and 20 minutes was considered training time. When we worked overtime, which was generally 12 hours, they would pay 8 hours overtime and 4 hours straight time because they considered the training time separate. This was found to be illegal. In turn, the employer decided to cut our hours to 36 hours citing that they could not afford to generate overtime. I had nothing to do with this complaint to the labor board. This seems like retaliation. My question is, could this be considered retaliation?

If an employee in a high-rise condo in Florida is terminated

If an employee in a high-rise condo in Florida is terminated and there is no legal dewfense under federal anti-discrimination laws, then the State law concerning right to work applies (as I understand it). However, when the exact reason (or none at all) for termination has nothing to do with threats against employees or something similar, but something akin to incompetence, for example, yet the employee, without warning (of termination or trespass) is removed peacefully by police at time of "termination", and is not warned about trespass what applies in the law. For example, said employee is good friends socially with a number of unit owners and previously had the right to pick up, discharge or even visit with one or more owners, does the condo management (either the building manager or the Board) have the right to bar entrance to the property for those reasons when the unit owner(s) have clearly invited the ex-employee?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state the association is in?Customer: Palm Beach County, FloridaJA: Has any paperwork been filed?Customer: Not to my knowledge. Wouldn't they or the police have to give me a copy? I was just told by the gatehouse guard (it is two separate condos with one gatehouse) that the property manager of the building the employee worked in verbally gave them notice to put on a interior chalkboard that I was to be denied admission under any circumstances, and top call the police immediately.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes. I plan on becoming an UBER driver and it appears to me that my visitation rights as well as my possible rights to make a living, could be cause for a lawsuit under state and federal civil rights laws.

I was placed on paid administrative leave on February 17th

I was placed on paid administrative leave on February 17th for "timecard mismanagement." This past Friday, I was contacted for the first time by my new director, who ordered me to return to work on Monday (today). I was offered no explanation. In the several weeks I was on PAL I was never contacted by HR for the so-called "investigation. I feel my professional was damaged and I do not feel comfortable returning to work, at least without some professional courtesy or explanations. Do Ihave any rights?
