I have a question relating to relocation with my current
I have a question relating to relocation with my current employer. I signed a 24 month contract with them on March 9, 2015. If I were to give written notice today, that I will be resigning effective March 9, 2017, and they decided to terminate me between Jan 18, 2017, and March 9, 2017, would I have to repay my relocation costs? In my contract it only states that I would have to repay for "voluntary resignation" and not "termination." By stating that I am resigning on March 9, 2017, could I be held liable as of today?Thank you
I am a RN and was terminated from my hospital after 25 years
I am a RN and was terminated from my hospital after 25 years of service. I was initially called into the office to be written up for tardies(6) and was told that they had evidence of me clocking in on a unit that was not my assigned unit and arriving on my unit 3 minutes later avoiding the late clock in and this was a terminatable offense but they had chosen to only write me up therefore receiving a warning and being made aware of the severity of my action. The next day I was terminated because HR had changed their mind. I had never received a warning for this before. The policy is verbsl warning, written warning, suspension, termination. Another RN on my unit was given only a warning for the same action the next day. I believe I was targeted to be made an example of. I had a long career at this hospital with multiple commendations and an excellent reputation in my field. Several management and Professionals in my area have called to exclaim disbelief and outrage on my part and willing to write letters of recommendation. Many of those same piers have encouraged me to seek a labor attorney. I am afraid of being labeled letigious because I will need to seek employment.
When I became a U.S. citizen I changed my citizenship on my
When I became a U.S. citizen I changed my citizenship on my employer's employee info site and inquired if I had to do anything else. I was previously a lawful permanent resident and provided my green card as evidence of my right to work in the U.S. HR then insisted I REPROVE my right to work in the U.S. by demanding a copy of my citizenship certificate. Not knowing any better I complied, and they took a copy.JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?Customer: U.S. citizen as of 7/15/2016. Later I learned they had no right to do this as my presenting my green card established my right to work in the U.S. permanently. The Employer guidelines are quite clear on this and that asking again (say when the green card expires) amounts to discrimination on the basis of national origin. I advised HR of this and requested they destroy the copy of my citizenship certificate they made, which they claim they did, but they have been hostile toward me ever since.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Other than informally or vial email to HR? No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The environment is politically hostile: I was warned that it was a Democrat shop and to "go along". I am very politically active OUTSIDE the office, never bringing up political issues inside, and requested and got, via email, assurances that my employer will not seek to curtail my external political activities. However, I still endure "left wing culture" in the office. Much of my family was wiped out by Hitler's national socialists and then robbed by Stalin's communists -- I am of Czech origin, and such a culture rising to the same hysteria that resulted in the murder of much of my family is very disturbing. My question is whether all this rises to the creation of a hostile work environment based on national origin.
I work for a German company as their US CEO. I have a
I work for a German company as their US CEO. I have a contract. In it clearly spells out the duties of the CEO and responsibilities. It also has a one year cancellation clause that can be invoked by either party in writing. the company is going to reorganize and will now have the US-CA and MX as a region under a new head picked by the company. In the near future all my department heads - HR F, Marketing and enginnering will now report to that person and they want me to run sales. Is this a breach of my contract and what recourse do a really haveJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New YorkJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: It is a single contract with me. not union and being the CEO, certainly fully time. NY is an at will state but the contract states they must give a years notice of change in duty or dismal (for non-cause). I have made them a ton of money and certainly they do not want to lose me but I moved halfway across the country 6 years ago to be a CEO not a sales managerJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I just want to know what recourse I would have in NY for the breach. There was no notice given and the change has not yet officially occurred.
I am a school teacher in the state of Texas who is on
I am a school teacher in the state of Texas who is on temporary disability leave due to anxiety and depression. I was on leave since Oct 24 and it was extended with health care provider's notice until Dec. 16 and again it was extended for 4 more months necause of my severe condition. I requested that I be transfer to another jobsite to accommodate for my disability when I return to work but HR refused to. I told HR carboncopied my principal in the email indirectly that they discriminated on my ADA rights being an employee with a disability because they didnt accommodate for me by allowing me to transfer. I emailed my principal twice about it. HR and my principal both didnt reply to my email. Then suddenly, i saw my job position posted on the website of the school district as a job opening. I emailed him back and told him I have not officially submitted a resignation letter. I am not FMLA eligible because I have not been with the district for 12 mos. however I am on temporary disability leave. What does it mean when he posted my job position? I know I can be replaced because Im not FMLA eligible and I had been out for long and students need a consistent teacher. But him posting my position does it mean that he had terminated me? He had not given me an official letter of termination. An employee on temporary disability leave cannot be terminated from her contract thats what federal and state law stated. Since I am on disability leave I know I am protected by American with Disabilities Act. Is it a termination when your job is posted on line? Did he terminate me by doing such? I have not officially resigned. He had not given me any termination letter. Im not FMLA eligible but Im on temporary disability leave. I asked him why he posted my ppsition online when I have not resign. Again, he didnt reply. So when I return to work what will be my job status? Does that mean that they will transfer or reassign me to another worksite? I wasnt able to sleep my anxiety and i really feel agitated

I have received a letter from a Law Firm stating that I have
I have received a letter from a Law Firm stating that I have failed to return equipment back to my employer. We agreed (verbally) after leaving that I would keep the computer that way If they needed some contract work I would be available for them. Now they are demanding it back months later out of malice. I know they have no record/serial number of the computer given to me. Do they have a case or is this just a threat?In addition, can I counter-sue for unpaid PTO (State law in CA)?
Two weeks ago I was working for UT Southwestern Medical
Two weeks ago I was working for UT Southwestern Medical Center (I got the job through a nursing agency)and while I was still in classroom training, and was called to my new manager's office and she told me my contract was canceled. The reason stated was they found a nurse within the company who was doing a lateral transfer but told me it was not for any other reason. I called my agency and they told me a different story. They said that a doctor I had worked for claimed that I shoved them and yelled at patients in the waiting room. They said this doctor could not provide any specific information on the incident. I have been a nurse for 8 years, and I had to pass an FBI background check to get this job as well as I had to give 6 references who were nurse managers. I have always worked in hospital settings. The only doctor I worked for was Dr. Linda Davis, who is my aunt and I worked for her at her private Psychologist office, and she is my aunt. I left her on good terms, I never raised a hand to her or attacked any patients in her waiting room. I helped her close her practice as she was 75. A few weeks ago my aunt and my mother got into heated arguments. I think she may targeted me to get back at my mom. I never used my aunt as a reference, but I think UT Southwestern may have called her as I was going to work in a pain clinic setting instead of being a bedside nurse. My FBI background check came out all clear, I received great responses from my references.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This is in Texas.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: My question is can I find out the truth on why I was let go and prevent UT Southwestern from giving this information out?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: It was contractual. I never got out of my orientation in the classroom when my contract was canceled. I had no contact with any medical staff or patients at this facility.
