It is a bit of a story, to start with I work for my

it is a bit of a long story, to start with I work for my stepfather's business. This past year my mom found out he was cheating on her. She started divorce proceedings, during the time the proceedings have been going on, a new employee was hired that basically took all my responsibilities. I was not fired but I have almost no work to do, and when I am done. I am told to go home. This has put me in a position where it is getting hard to pay my bills. One of which is rent to my stepfather. Since I am still working I can assume the removal of my old responsibilities ( that at times I am ask to help the new guy with) I did not loose them because of performance or my ability to do the job. Also all this was done with out any communication to me. One day a new person was there doing my job. Due to the strained relation I have with my step father now communication is impossible. I just feel there is something wrong about this, and was wondering if it was also wrong in the law. sorry for the long questionJA: 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: full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: not that I can think of

My job will no longer be in existence because my company

My job will no longer be in existence because my company sold the product. There is no comparable position BUT there is another position paying 35K less. I expect that they will ask to lower my salary. Is it legal to do this? Since my present job will be no more, I can get 16 weeks severance based on my time on the job. How can I get them to pay severance?

Is there a certain amount of work that an employer needs to

Is there a certain amount of work that an employer needs to provide to call you back to work from unemployment benefits? As in, the employer lays you off for lack of work and 2 months later they call you back to work. So you go back to work and then they lay you off again a month later for lack of work again. What happens then?

I am a C Corp. in WA State. Small business, technically I

I am a C Corp. in WA State. Small business, technically I have 4 full time employees including myself. I have an employee that appears to be on the path of wanting to be fired, in order to collect unemployment benefits. I need counsel on how to let this employee go (can prove that she is not doing the job she signed up for and sign an acknowledgement for) without having her collect those benefits. Have never had an unemployment claim filed and don't wish to start now since it's obviously an Insubordination situation. One other major piece to this, employee stated skills in the beginning which she obviously does not have. Have given her several "verbal" talking to's but nothing yet in writing as she did sign a detailed Job Duties Required to Perform acknowledgement form at hire (1 year ago), and at 90 day probationary review. Thanks. *I do have a company/employee manual that I can send over that states Corrective Action Procedures.

My employer terminated my employment but only after I

Hi! My employer terminated my employment but only after I declined to write an attitude and performance improvement plan. All of my performance reviews were great. Basically I got let go because I was late on inputting timesheets. I may add getting a live check for late time entry rather than direct depositing my check isn't a written policy in the employee handbook. Can I still receive unemployment insurance after declining to write the plan? I feel like there's a form of trickery involved here.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New York StateJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: at will and full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No except how much will this consultation cost?JA: I'm not sure of the exact price, but there's only a $5 deposit. The rest of the price information will be on the page I send you to.Customer: That's ok. I think I'll see if I can find a lawyer in my city to assist. Thank you for your time.
