I work for a quasi-governmental organization in FL and have

I work for a quasi-governmental organization in FL and have been placed on unpaid administrative leave for alleged wrongful adjustments made to employee time cards. The adjustments in question are approved by my manager. No action has been taken against him, even though he's aware the adjustments are being made and approves the time records. Why would the company put me on unpaid leave and not discipline him in any way? He has not been adversely affected by this...why?

Just a question regarding canceling a contract. Im an

Hi just a question regarding canceling a contract. Im an overseas nurse from australia and ive been in contact with an agency who can sponsor, find an employer and file eb3 for me to work and migrate in the US. I have recently found a direct employer and i want to cancel my contract with this agency. im just wondering if they can penalise me if i leave even if they havent started the paperworks yet? They havent started processing papers for immigration, no employers yet etc, i just signed an initial contract when i joined and they collected all my documents, no real work has been done yet. Can i still leave? Also they said they will penalise me for direct/indirect cost incured once i terminate my contract, but i wonder, if theres no actual work done since my applcation is still in ints infancy stage, can they still collect money from me?Also, can they file lawsuit against even when im overseas? They dont have office here just in USA and philippines. Thanks.

If an employee's Short Term Disability ends one-month after

If an employee's Short Term Disability ends one-month after the company's FMLA, does the employee have to accept a separation agreement (allowing lump sum compensation and continuation of medical benefits for 4 months starting on the employee's end-date of employment) before the expiration of the FMLA period? The company has extended a separation package but agreed to revisit it once the employee's ST Disability period expires (especially considering that the employee is still not able to return to work). Someone thought that the company would only offer the separation agreement if it fell within the FMLA timeframe and not the ST Disability time period. Is this true?

My question is about term disability, not sure what category

my question is about long term disability, not sure what category that falls into. About 10 years ago I went on long term disability thru my employer due to a rare eye disease that has left me visually impaired. I have just recently got offered a part time job that may turn into a full time job if it works out. the pay is significantly lower. It is about half my pre-disability hourly rate and if I only work say 10-15 hours a week its only about 20% of my previous weekly rate. I am not to sure if I will get kicked off of the disability plan. How do most of these plans work I cannot understand the jargon in the benefit plans. I don't even know if I am asking the question correctly. In other words: Will they continue to pay me benefits even if I get a part time job or will they terminate the monthly benefit outright. Thanks for any help.

I worked in New Home Sales. I was 100% commission based with

I worked in New Home Sales. I was 100% commission based with a mandatory 6 day work week. My issue is this: I was terminated by the employer. At the time I was terminated, I had a sales backlog of approximately $70,000 worth of commissioned sales under contract and/or under construction. These contracts are based on approved buyer financing as well as timeliness of build (estimated 12 months build time).JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: My contract stated that I would be paid on any homes that closed (title transfered to buyer) within the next 60 days. However, I fought the employer regarding the basis of termination through the Texas Workforce Commission and won my unemployment benefits even after the employer attempted to appeal the decision 2 times. The employer has a history of terminating their salespeople when they have large backlogs of sales so that they only have to pay their replacement $500 to manage the process as opposed to a Percentage of the Sales Price. Imagine a $400,000 home paying 2% to the sales person but instead they fire the sales person and only pay the next employee $500 to complete the process.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TexasJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At-will full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, thank you!
