My employment was recently terminated and my employer did

My employment was recently terminated and my employer did not disclose the reason. When I applied for unemployment in Texas they communicated to them that I was fired for failure to perform. I had been leading a team of over 120 people on a large project that was over 95% complete and they owed me a remaining bonus in the amount of $25K upon being released, and they I believe that it is the motive behind my release just prior to completing the project. Do I have a legal avenue to pursue?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: yesJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I was leading on the project for almost 4 years and getting paid over $20K per month on average during that time. Would an employer pay someone that much for that long if they did not do a good job.

A friend of mine is on unemployment. She is chinese and

A friend of mine is on unemployment. She is chinese and speaks very broken english. I agreed to help her with her unemployment each week. She just got a notice that she is being audited for two weeks of claims. Week ending 6/3 and 6/10. I filed for her those two weeks on 6/11. She needs to apply for four jobs a week, each week. I filed for her one 6/11 for both weeks. I selected that I applied for the jobs on 6/2 (for week ending 6/3 and on 6/9for week ending 6/10) but in actuality I filled out the applications on 6/11 for both weeks. Furthermore one was bounced back and she didn't tell me, so only 3 were filed that week because one would be invalid. And on the other week 1 is deleted from her email, I am not sure why. Furthermore she got a response from two employees and she deleted them without telling me. The auditor would like copies of all emails and all response. I am not sure what to do. Supply the emails , which will show the incorrect dates and will show bounced back information, etc. or ignore the auditors request and allow them to come to a determination without any additional information.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: WisconsinJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: It's unemploymentJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

We are a NJ small employer and provide our employees with

We are a NJ small employer and provide our employees with six (6) paid sick days per year. Employees earn 1/2 sick day per month and we have an employee who has already used up all of his sick pay. This employee is an exempt employee and therefore we cannot pay him for days he calls out. Despite the fact that all employees are aware of the sick pay policy this individual employee has abused the policy. What if any recourse do we have to discipline this employee?Since he has abused the company's sick pay policy is that cause for termination?
