I am employed by a large multinational corporation. I have

I am employed by a large multinational corporation. I have been employed by this firm since August of last year. In February the topic of my relocation from my previous state (MA) to my current state (CO) was proposed by the VP of my function, hereafter called Abe. After the case was made for the relocation, I agreed. I was sent from MA to CO to interview stakeholders at the new campus and to find a new apartment. Finding a new apartment was difficult, but I was assured multiple times in writing and verbally that I would be reimbursed in full for the move. Multiple times between my first visit and my move Abe inquired into the status of my preparations, and encouraged me to continue preparations. A recent reorganization of my department led me to express to Abe my skepticism that I should move to Colorado at all, and possibly not stay with the company. This was met with more reassurances. I bought a ticket, hired movers, booked and loaded autotransport to Colorado, signed a lease for 12 months, and put a downpayment for the same apartment. The day prior to my departure, after all of my belongings were already in transit to CO I was contacted by the reimbursement office asking that I sign a contract to begin the reimbursement process. This contract contained a clause stipulating that if I did not stay with my company for 2 years, I was responsible for repayment in full of the relocation costs. I now know that this is a common stipulation in relocation contracts, but it was not disclosed at any time in the preceding 3 months, it is not in the employee handbook, and it is not on the employee HR webportal. If made aware of this stipulation, I would have made no plans to move. I contacted my HR representative for assistance, which they were totally unwilling to provide. The gist of the conversation was: "take it or leave it." As I had already paid for AND transported all of my stuff, and do not have the money to undo all of that by myself, I actually saw my options as, "take it." So I did. If we were to terminate our employment relationship before the end of the two years, is that contract enforceable considering the situation I was in when I signed it?

I have a situation where I was given a written counseling

Hey… I have a situation where I was given a written counseling because of a complaint. My supervisor stated that he did an investigation on the matter. He didn't ask me about the complaint. When I found out the complaint, it was when he was issuing me a written counseling. Then three weeks after that, he terminated my employment. I want to know if he could write me up for a complaint without hearing my side of the story.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: North CarolinaJA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: I am a member of US Legal Resources and they gave me a lawyer however he wasn't an employment lawyerJA: Is there anything else the Employment Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: Yes… My Vice President came down to terminate an employee based on a complaint that was given to him. I asked my VP should we consult with the employee before we terminate him. He stated no because he had received the complaint from the Director of Nursing based on a CNA letter that she wrote. The complaint was that a CNA was sitting in my employee's lap in the break room. The story was made up so that the CNA could get terminated.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Employment Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

I have a HIPPA question. I work adult daycare. I have

I have a HIPPA question. I work for an adult daycare. I have to pick up the patients and transport them. For the last 4 months a patient with mental issues has become extremely violent and punching and kicking me when I try to get her to leave her home. I have written up reports multiple times to my company and i have still been ordered to pick her up. I have been afraid her family may accuse me of abuse due to me having to hold her hands to keep from being assaulted. Today I video taped the altercation and it was violent. My company has now threatened to fire me for violating HIPPA laws. I have the tape on my phone. I have shown it to her family at there request (the POA) and no one else. Is this a HIPPA violation?? One other driver also has been assaulted while driving by this patient

I'm a dual status technician army so as I am a dod

I'm a dual status technician for the army so as I am a dod civilian I am also a army reservist. I had a incident where I had a pneumothorax and didn't report it to the military side which I was told wasn't something I had to do anyways. My current DoD job has a requirement for me to keep a CDL and after receiving my DOT medical card and getting my CDL the FOH requested a medical surviellence program form in which I returned to the doctor for another evaluation ?? At that point I figured I would put down that I have have a pneumothorax before in the past because I didn't want to further the situation if that's the answer they were searching for. Now recently I received another appointment I have to go to and they just want me to perform a breathing test and sign a medical history record release form? My question which the story be said... Should I sign the release form ? What all should I be worried about if I didn't sign the release form ? Looseing my job ? It seems as if I'm on the Federal occupational health radar and it makes me nervous that they are trying to cover themselves from a legal standpoint or get rid of me.

3 years ago an individual filed multiple false police reports

3 years ago an individual filed multiple false police reports about me i.e. Elder abuse, kidnapping, fraud, assault, assault with a deadly weapon, and workplace violence. These false accusation prompted the Fountain Valley, CA police dept to obtain a search warrant and raid with guns a blazing my business. A civil complaint was also filed with accusations that also included the above stated falsely filed police reports. This 20 month civil case and the police activity have cost me lost reputation, customers, friends, and business deals, and much more. Still to this day I discover ways in which these false accusations have hurt me i.e. being pulled over for speeding and going to jail with the comment under the officers breath while handcuffing me saying "old men beaters deserve more than a ticket". Both the police detectives and the the civil judge were finally convinced to look at a 2.5 hour audio/visual recording that I had of a meeting between myself and my accuser, and the false accusations were all clearly proved to be false based on the video tape. The police closed their investigation and apologized and I won the entire civil action in my defense against his accusations. I owe this man money but cannot pay because my business is failing in whole or in part because of this mans actions. This man is retired but has several million dollars worth of real estate rental properties. What can I do as I don't have money to retain an attorney.
