I have a heart condition that qualifies under the ADA. I had heart failure and started an employer suggested leave of absence as a reasonable accommodation on August 8, 2016. On August 15 the new union had a contract ratification they provided $1000 signing bonus for all active employees and I am told I don't qualify because of the leave of absence. I am also using intermittent FMLA at the same time.
My wife is a radiology physician, who recently started a new
My wife is a radiology physician, who recently started a new job (3-year employee contract) with a group in Toledo, OH. However, she's just gotten a very lucrative offer from a different group in FL. Her contract says that she needs to give 120 days notice before the end of the contract's annual term for it not to renew, or to provide 90 days notice if she wants to break it after her first year. She also needs to pay back her 10k signing bonus if she breaks the contract during first year. However it doesn't say how much notice she needs to give if she wanted to quit during first year and how much time she'll have to pay back her signing bonus. Can you help to clarify that? I can attach her contract if necessary.
I am leaving a company after 8 months of employment. I
I am leaving a company after 8 months of employment. I received a sign on bonus of $5,000 and signed a contract with the following details:“Position: Cost AccountantReporting To: ***** *****You will receive a $1,500.00 signing bonus which will be paid after 30 days and $3,500 after 90 days of employment. If you leave the employment within 12 months after your starting date, you will need to repay the signing bonus.”3 months after starting they changed who I was reporting to and changed my title to a Business Analyst. My first question is does this void the contract I signed?If not, my second question is since they are silent on the repayment terms can I legally send them $50 per month interest free until the balance is paid in full?

There is a contradiction between the offer letter payback
There is a contradiction between the offer letter payback terms for my starting bonus and the terms stated in the signing bonus agreement. The offer letter states that the signing bonus must be paid back if employment is terminated prior to 12 months from date of hire, the agreement states a specific date of May 16th, 2016. Which one is correct and could be enforced?

I signed a terms and conditions of employment agreement on
I signed a terms and conditions of employment agreement on March 30, 2015 with my current employer. There was a delay between this paperwork and my start date. My start date was July 20, 2015 and I resigned with an end date of June 9, 2016. I got a $5,000 signing bonus when I started. One provision of the agreement is below:I agree that should I terminate employment for reasons within my control in a period of twelve (12) months after my date of hire, I will repay to the Company costs, signing bonuses, and/or retention bonuses previously paid to me or paid on my behalf in connection with my move to this location. Repayment will be made to (Company) in (Town, County), Texas within 12 months from the date of termination.I did not move to this location for employment. I moved here about a year and a half prior to talking with this company. They lied to me about several other things related to my employment and I am inclined to not repay any money. Is it legally enforceable that I repay this money?
My wife is a Licensed Veterinarian Tech, over 15 years
My wife is a Licensed Veterinarian Tech, over 15 years experience, in the State of Washington for the past 4 months going on 5 months soon.Before agreeing to accept the employment at this clinic. My wife specifically asked, during her interview process, she was looking for a place that can guarantee her 40 hrs a week. They said that wouldn't be a problem because they are always busy busy. Mind you, my wife is the only Licensed Vet Tech there. So they offered my wife a $1000 sign on bonus which she got almost immediately after she started working there. The sign on bonus says she needs to stay for a year then the bonus is hers to keep with no repayment if she is no longer employed there after the year has passed.Well currently, she is not consistently getting her 40 hrs a week, the clinic is busy enough as usual so it is not because there was any slow periods or decline in clients. It is always busy every day of the week.My wife is very skillful and very experienced. She has a passion for this field and her love of working with animals however it is getting overshadowed by her manager not consistently giving the 40 hrs a week as discussed in the interview. So what it seems like is happening is the $1000 bonus is being expense out by not giving my wife, the only Licensed and Experienced Vet Tech, her 40 hrs a week. My wife and I depend on our finances based on what we were planning on as a set 40 hrs a week paycheck budgeting but she is not meeting her budget plans and feels like her sign on bonus was really a double edge sword, catch 22. It really doesn't feel like she was given a bonus.I want to know if this sounds fishy and what is the legal obligations here because my wife wants to look for another job that can give her the 40 hrs a week but feels imprisoned to this 1 year sign bonus contract.
