I am an LPN working with a 5 provider medical office in

I am an LPN working with a 5 provider medical office in Connecticut for the past 16 years. Recently, management sent the 4 nurses in our office an email stating that they were going to "share" the nurses with another MD who is not with our practice, but in a solo practice about 5 miles away. They are telling us that when he needs a nurse because his is out sick or on vacation that we will have to go and work at his office until she returns. I was not asked and have never agreed to work at any office other than the one I am stationed at. In addition, his hours are longer than my normal workday--I work 8am to 5pm and his hours are 830am to 730pm and this presents a hardship for me as my husband works 3rd shift and leaves for work at 730pm. My question is this: Can I refuse to work at another office on the grounds that I was not asked and this has never been part of my job, and the hours are outside of my normal hours. Is this legal? I will leave this job and find another one if I am force to do this. Also, if I am not given a choice, could I leave on these grounds and collect unemployment while I search for another position.

I was fired today. I worked company that works with the DOD.

I was fired today. I worked for a company that works with the DOD. They said I was asking other employees last Thursday for drugs, but will not tell me who said it or what exactly was said. I had a doctor put me on Suboxone a few weeks ago to get off of the prescription medications needed after a 6 year long illness. They called today and said I was fired, but still will not tell me who said what. How do I defend against a ghost?

I enrolled last week after being released from my job on

I enrolled for unemployment last week after being released from my job on June 16. I have a 401-K with approximately $950.00 in it. I'm not planning on cashing it in, but rather transfer it to an IRA when I get another job. Will this prevent me from getting unemployment?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I'm in Arizona and I am 65.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I have no idea. I did receive severance pay of approximately $8600.00 plus two weeks pay.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.

My office is closing and the employee were offered a

Hi there,My office is closing and the employee were offered a severance pay (golden handcuff), appx. 6.5 months of pay for me (for 10 years of employment).A couple of years ago, New York State unemployment insurance program went through reforms, and now basically one cannot claim/receive UI benefits (for a period of time based on NYS's calculation) if the severance pay was made within the 30 days of the last day of employment.I've informed our HR manager of this change and asked if the company could make a payment shortly AFTER the 30 days from the last day.She said it depends on the NY State.When the company files (right away) paperwork with the NY State, the NYS decides whether we will be eligible for UI benefits.Or perhaps she was saying NYS decides WHEN to pay out the severance packages?My Questions are:1) Is an employer required to file paperwork regarding the severance packages to its soon-to-be former employees in NYS?2) Can an employer decide on their own when to pay out the severance packages or does NYS decide on that?I'd really appreciate some info. Thank you.Anna

Tennessee unemployment question- Employer obligations

Tennessee unemployment question- Employer obligations before, during, and after releasing an employee of their work duties. Hello, What obligations would I have as an employer afterwards? Would I need to make payments to the state for the person that has been released while they are unemployed- if they file? If so what would my payments be? Would my Unemployment insurance rates go up if this is the first time an employee files unemployment after being released from employment? If so how much and would the rates come back down? In Tennessee what are the differences in the terms: restrictions against firing, suspending or disciplining employees? - See more at: https://www.tn.gov/workforce/topic/employee-rights#sthash.EmduDFht.dpuf
