While working for a temp agency I was harassed and

While working for a temp agency I was harassed and threatened by 2 employees at the contractors site. When I told temp agency about the situation and to please find me another job, they did nothing. They expected me to handle it myself. They did not investigate the situation and were mad at me when I left the job 2 days later. I worked less than 2 months of a 6 month contract and believe I am owed compensation for the 4+ months. At $30/hour this comes out to about $20,000 +.

I was placed to work for a health care facility "contract to

I was placed to work for a health care facility "contract to hire" via a temporary firm. When I was brought on by the facility as a permanent employee their offer was $11,000/year less than what I was making as a contract to hire. Never was there ever mention through the temp that my wages would decrease when/if I was made a permanent employee. I left a stable position thinking I was making a move to a better company. I feel completely mislead by the recruiter. Now I have a very large pay cut. Do I have any claim against the temp company?

We are working with a temp agency. They sent us their

Hi there - We are working with a temp agency. They sent us their agreement and we have a few questions:- They have their employee (who would be a temp with us) being paid overtime above 8 hours per day; they charge us 1.3 times their usual hourly rate for overtime and 1.6 times for double time. Is overtime legally required in a situation where the individual is the employee of the temp agency and a temp for us? We'd like to get out of this if possible but realize it may not be possible if overtime is legally required.- There are no confidentiality obligations for the company or the employee. Is it typical for the temp agency to have confidentiality obligations and require their employees to also have them? How should we document this in the agreement?- They disclaim all liability related to work quality/performance and limit all liability to the equivalent of the fees paid for the services. Is this typical? Should we push back to get them to back up the services they provide, at least to "provide services in a workmanlike manner in accordance with industry standard" and try to get the limitation of liability up to 3-5 times the fees paid?- This temp is in finance and the agreement limits him fro being authorized to render opinions on financial statements; sign his name on any opinion/audit/financial statement/etc.; or be ultimate decision maker on material decisions related to client's business. Is this typical?Thank you!

Can it beconsidered discriminatory if a temp agency

Can it beconsidered discriminatory if a temp agency advertises for mock jurors based multiple qualifications. Also the ad states there are other qualifying factors but you need to email or callin to discuss them. When I called in the division manager recruiter said I had to be ' white' . The ad never stated they were looking for a specific focus group, however they did request you call for additional qualifications. Does this fall under discrimination, and can that agency be sued for civil rights violation?

I tarted working at an explosive plant June 2015 through a temp agency and they hired me on with the company about 3 weeks ago as a production worker. I had previously worked with another explosive company for about 10 years till they had layoffs due to oil prices going down and now they are wanting me back. My question is " The company I'm working at now had me sign a paper stating I would not work for another explosive plant when I leave them for a year and I'm wondering what are the legalities with that if I do quit and start on with my previous company"?

I am a resident of Gardena, CA. I was offered a 6 month

Hello, I am a resident of Gardena, CA. I was offered a 6 month temp /contract position through Apex on behalf of L.A. Care. After a long process of interviewing, background check, countless calls and emails, I was finally offered the position via email at $20 an hour. In order to be at my best, ***** ***** money on wardrobe, eyeglasses, etc. As long as spent time securing another daycare for my child. Today, the agency called, saying that L.A care "went over their budget, and they cannot afford to hire 3 temps." The agency assured me that it was nothing I did wrong. I cannot explain the level of public humiliation (believing that I was employed when I wasn't, how they kept sending me emails asking for additional information after I was already offered the job) and mental anguish this has caused. I want them to keep their word, to be accountable and pay me 6 months of employment at $20, plus the mental anguish this has caused. I would love to know my options. Here is a cut and paste of what they sent me (although below it says 3 months, she sent me a subsequent email correction stating 6 months). I also accepted the job offer email.Kimberly,Congratulations again on your official offer with LA Care! I have provided the position details below. You should be receiving several emails from Sterling today in regards ***** ***** background information. They would love to get you in the door this upcoming Monday 5/16 so if you could make arrangements for child care that would be great!Like I mentioned, orientation is held every Friday from 8AM-12PM so it is important to have the background completed before then. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns and I will do my best to accommodate you.· Position: Data Entry Clerk· Client: LA Care· Location: Los Angeles, CA· Contract: 3 months (may extend)· Rate: $20/hr
