I'm a County Employee in CA overseeing a county psychiatric

I'm a County Employee in CA overseeing a county psychiatric hospital in a non Union, management position. I have been employed there for 2.5 years. Administration has come to me and said they are re-certifying the facility and that they need me to go on the facility as the Head of Service on the state certification and put my professional license (marriage and family therapist license) on the facility. They said there will be no additional compensation for this at this time. Under my job description, this is not cited as a requirement. Can you tell me as an employee in CA, am I required to put my license on their facility? I want to decline as I'm not comfortable having their facility under my license but I'm encountering some push back. Thank you for your assistance.

Someone else less qualified than me got a job I was promised

I was promised a job that I ended up getting passed over for by someone less qualified than myself. I confronted my supervisor because she had been planning to put me in it since last year. I was devastated. Since, I confronted her about the broken promise and advancing others less qualified, she has retaliated and created what I would call a hostile working environment. I am miserable. I am being forced out. Do I have any rights? I work in a school system as a behavior consultant. My boss is the director of special ed. She refers to other employees as "f**ktards", "idiots" and threatens to put people back in the classroom all the time. I am frightened. I need my job.This is in the state of Tennessee.I am full time, tenured, have been in education for more than 15 years. I have impeccable evaluations and always have, dating back to the first year I became an educator.She threatens...calls me on my personal cell phone, screams, yells, curses at me. She discusses me throughout the district in a disparaging way. I feel she is ruing my reputation.

I feel like this is a little bit complicated because Arizona

I feel like this is a little bit complicated because Arizona supposed to be a right-to-work state I was fired for insubordination for asking to go to a family reunion twice then I was told I was being fired because the owner did not like our conversation now I have the recordings of the conversation I had with the owner which was very cordial I also have a conversation with the manager basically my boss saying that I had asked I had asked to go to my family reunion he said I'll try the second and ask I believe he never asked a first time after after I had gotten fired I asked for a letter stating that I was no longer working there because I needed to change my insurance for my children I had asked him 3 times to send me this paperwork he didn't never return it send it to me in fact after the second time he stopped answering my call I lost my insurance for my kids I also have recording saying that they were moving me from full time status to part-time status because I did go to school part time and I went during my lunch and the owner was surprised to find out I went to school again my manager never told her I went to school I do have the recording of me being fired for insubordination my boss telling me that yes you're being fired for insubordination for asking twice to go to a family reunion I was being told that the owner didn't like our conversation together I really believe that the manager we going to have issues with me and possibly the owner she only spoke to me twice with the manager though he would not go and talk to the owner about things I would ask him I asked him about a bonus he never talked to their own the rest of the office got it I did not I had worked more than 42 hours a week for the year the entire year I cannot get my vacation time or pay I would ask for supplies I would never get my supplies such as ink paper I actually I had to write a formal letter stating and asking why I did not receive my items why have I had to ask repeatedly for the things that I needed to do my job and when I brought up such as things that were needed in the office that are required by them such as first aid kit eyewash station because we did have chemicals on his property I believe once I started bringing up safety issues that made them feel they could fire me because not only with the safety issues about bringing up bonuses and how I was being treated unfairly how what they were doing to me was unethical and I'm not right and morally wrong I believe because I had wrote a formal letter saying that I needed supplies to do my job then I was I was told that I had to every time I stepped away from my desk I had to email or text my boss every time that was whether I had to go pee or went to go get a drink of water or had to go downstairs to have drivers or driver sheets every time and I had told them that that isn't right now is that my job and I was told it was my job to text every time I stepped away from the desk that is when I told them that it was unfair and not right I felt what they were doing was not right unethical that you do not treat people like that you not treat employees like that to make them feel miserable about everything they were doing but I had they had just hired a new girl and she was afraid to go to the bathroom because she felt if she went to the bathroom she might be in the bathroom too long I had called the other office because my boss and told me that the other office had to do this and I have spoken to other places and they told me know why would we have to email or text him every time they went to the bathroom got up to get a drink of water too get a pencil sharpened two hand another person a piece of paper so the boss had told me they had to do that I come to find out they didn't think he was only making me do it oh and the new girl they hired also after they had fired me no one had actually answered they stopped having people answer the phone in my office apparently it really wasn't my job to answer the phone with my boss said it was part of my job that I had to do this and I told them that I felt that they were micromanage mean so much to the point where I couldn't do my job and they were making going out of their way to make me feel miserable too or possibly hoping I would quit and I didn't quit and I felt and because I had stood up for what I believed was unethical and wasn't the ocean shoe writing a formal letter and asking for supplies my bonus my hours and why I was being moved to part-time from full time when I was actually working 42 hours a year weekly for the entire year because I begin to notice that my boss was not doing actually what I needed Ashton to do for me and to such as vacation family reunion to supply the things I needed to do my job I think he was afraid of the boss I wasn't I had actually said some things that I think made him feel emasculated because I brought up the point that if the owner had cut his balls off and he was afraid to ask her to for me to go to a family reunion was wrong but he would not do this AZ a manager shouldn't do this was not right 2 weeks after these things had been brought up and things I had complained about things I have needed I got fired that is why I don't feel like I was being singled out because I have brought up issues also I feel that there was a lot of discrimination towards me because I work in a completely different office then my boss I also feel that my boss maybe not the manager because I was a woman if I was a man I'm sure he would have jumper really quick because this is a Mansfield that I was working in mainly male-dominated so my question is did they have the right to fire me because I stood up for myself brought up issues that need to be taken care of brought up things that I felt were unethical not right how you treating people are human beings in general that I was being treated differently than everyone else I keep getting told that because Arizona as a right-to-work state they had the right to fire me if I picked my nose is this true do they have the right to fire me because of these reasons because Arizona is a right-to-work state because I felt like I wasn't being submissive enough to them do I need to get an attorney and is it hurt an attorney who is willing to take on my case feel like as if I have been walked on by my employers and if I need an attorney if they know that I am not capable of being able to afford an attorney what can I do is there an attorney out there who would be able to help me

I have been working part time as a taxi cab driver in NH, a right to work state. I agreed and we shook hands on working 3 days plus every other Sunday, which I did. I was required to sign a non-compete clause, as a condition of employment, which I did. After a few weeks, my employer tried forcing me to sign an agreement to work every Sunday (- at a reduced rate of pay for those Sundays), which I declined to do. Since, he has tried to get me to agree to the change at least once a week since. I've just been fired and for something I didn't even do.Can I start my own cab service?
