I have asthma, food and environmental allergies which has resulted
I have asthma, food and environmental allergies which has resulted in anaphylactic episodes resulting in coding For the past 2 years I have had these severe episodeshappening around the time the school I work in is stripping floors or ripping out moldy carpet and placing tiles. Now this year I was doing fine and the principal, due to budget and deadline, decided to first have the entire school pressure washed, and gym, hallways painted during school hours and weekends. I had not prior knowledge until after I arrived for work and the maintenance began approx. mid morning. I contacted the office that I was having breathing issues, burning nose and would not be able to work under those conditions because I didn't want to have another anaphylactic/coding/life threatening episode. After having contact on 2 separate dates the principal never responded to any of my inquiries until after the second encounter with harsh chemicals. My doctor sent to my employer that I could not return to work until the work was complete and there were no more harmful particle in the air. I have 5 weeks left of school before I retire. Out of those 5 weeks I have only 4 more sick days on the books for me to get paid. I have pursued workmens comp. It is in review but was told that my claimed appeared to be a Idiopathic Condition, due to North Carolina's strick laws that my case may not qualify. I assure that the students and staff that have allergies and others that do not are suffering each day. I receive their pain each day through txting. I am to get final answer in 5 days. It was suggested to take this up with the North Carolina Industrial Commission. or that this could possibly be a Civil Claim. The principal has informed that she has no idea how long this will last. Therefore, I have 21 days after my sick leave is exhausted with no income. My concern is why should I have to suffer not only with my health but without income because my boss decided to put deadline and budget ahead of her staff and students health. Is there any advice that you have for me. Talking to the board of education members and superindent or what legal steps I should take or do I even have a chance without it costing me an arm and a leg. I am a teacher assistant and we get very little.
Why would a school send a certified letter to someone on work
Why would a school send a certified letter to someone on work related stress relief. I have long-term disability insurance. Also, I have been working with a psychiatrist M.D. since my early 20s for serious panic disorder, PTSD, a eating disorder. Two years ago I suffered a serious injury at work and had to get an attorney b/c my employer was so aggressive that my doctor actually said that he was worried for me. Since then the superintendent of the district has been really bad to me and he recently wanted to talk to me about a concern he had about my level of service. This just put me over the top and I had to leave b/c I was mentally such a mess. I called in sick and went to see my psychiatrist who immediately put me on stress relief until from April 10-July 1st. Now I received a notice that I have a certified letter waiting for me from my work. Any ideas on what it could be?

These incidents happened after criminal charge and divorce started.1. taken away my cell and laptop that I have been using for personal use,sometime I used for work as well. My husband has been paying from company expenses.2.suddenly changed the work schedule. I used to work3.my salary got reduced. My husband cut his salary and a couple of coworkers because he says business has financial issue.But I have a proof that business has been making same profit. I strongly believe he did it to cut his alimony and child support, and make my life hard.4.

Not willing to any information to abuser.5. they made a strict rule for only my department. we have to give one months notice to take time off,we can not take breaks together etc, there has never such rules before. There is no employment hand book. They made new rules and emailed us.6.I got the write up today for lack of work performance. They made all of us in department to email our tasks done everyday. I have a proof that I have been as hard as possible. Nobody in our department knows about DV and divorce. However everyone noticed that top of the company is picking on me. All my co-workers are surprised that I got write up.Is there anything I can do at this point? or later if they fire me? I feel like they are harassing me because of DV and divorce.I would also like to know if I will be entitled to get unemployment if I chose to quit this company.

Good evening,This question has to do with the new
Good evening,This question has to do with the new California sick leave law. Starting on July 1, 2015 we started using the accrual method of 1 hour of sick time for 30 hours worked for our seasonal staff. We are going to be rehiring soon some of the seasonal staff back. Management wants to change to lump sum of giving 24 hours up front. I want to know what should be done with all the sick time previous accrued by our rehired seasonal staff? Management has a cap of 48 hours. How does the 48 hours come into play? Can the seasonal staff every take or use the 48 hours or are they limited to only using 24 hours? It seems pointless to have them accrue 48 hours when they can never use more than 24 hours in a year. Using the lump sum method you are not suppose to carry forward their time so how would they accrued 48 hours?
My husband, now recently estranged husband, received an insuranceView more legal questions
My husband, now recently estranged husband, received an insurance settlement from a accident from November, 2015. The check had my name on it as well as my husband. Since I used all my sick leave from work to help him in his recovery, including running errands and whatever else he needed, I told him I would not sign the check until he reimbursed me for my used sick time. He is trying to have the check reissued in his name only; Is there anything I can do to prevent this?
