I have a question regarding my workplace. I've been working

I have a question regarding my workplace. I've been working for over 20yrs for this company. My title is superintendent for residential properties. I have my job descriptions, but managements have pushed me to work other jobs that I really don't need to do. I'm not a contractor but they treat me like one. At this moment, new management who is a family member is running the company. He pushes and pushes me to do to many things at once. Now for a couple of months we have seen activity that they're selling the buildings, they didn't say anything to employees. After two months, I asked employer what's going on, that I seen and heard that they're selling, I asked where do I stand? Employer tells me to not worry but that to not share with other employees about the selling of properties, doesn't tell me anything else.. I believe they're stalling all employees so that we don't leave. I have no contract. What are my rights? Can he lie and tell me he still needs me then turn around and once he sells tell me , sorry don't need you anymore. I have responsibilities and bills. What are ny rights?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I'm in New York City , manhattan areaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Meaning?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Besides that they treat employees unfairly.. there a lot of things here and there

I have an employee who has had chronic absences from work

I have an employee who has had chronic absences from work for several months. We have been very accommodating, because she is a single mother. However, it has recently become worse. She has missed 8 out of the last 20 days of work. She produced a note a few weeks ago from a doctor stating he was treating her for PTSD. This is the first time we had seen this. Within 2 days, we reassigned her to a different location to alleviate some of her job stress. However, she has had additional absences (not related to PTSD) and we have given her a written warning regarding her attendance.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: She is complaining that the write-up is unfair and discriminatory. We are in Georgia. We have not "singled her out" and expect her to adhere to our attendance policy. She has not been with us long enough to qualify for FMLA. We have allowed her to take unpaid leave. However, we are a medical practice and her chronic absenteeism is placing a burden on the practice.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At will, full time.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, I think this covers it. The write up is considered a disciplinary action, but not because of her condition of which we were just recently made aware, but because of her attendance.

Hello. State CA. I was let go of my job this last Monday for not meeting sales quotas. There are 3 other reps that have been there a little bit longer. When I was being recruited I was promised no sales quota. Offer letter does not state sales quota. Within 2 months I was given this unrealistic quota. I was the only one of the 3 with quota. My low numbers reflect the poor service this company delivers.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I disclosed to my supervisor and the company owner that I have suffered severe depression and anxietyJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: California, San JoseJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: at will full time

I just got hired for a new job after several interviews. I have small gauges in my ears, which were visible during the interviews. The employee handbook they just sent me says absolutely no earrings or jewelry. Now, I will have visible holes in my ear if I follow this policy. I don't know what to do except put small, skin colored earrings in the holes. I am feeling worried about work and how I can negotiate this. They didn't say anything during the interviews.

I work in Alachua County, FL that includes Trans in a

I am Transgender and I work in Alachua County, FL that includes Trans in a protected class as far as discrimination is concerned. I am the VP of Engineering and recently complained that my boss, the CEO, was discriminating against me. His management of me has caused stress, anxiety and depression. The company, 50 employees has a lawyer coming in on Friday to act as an independent assessor of the situation. Here is my evidence. Please tell me what you think about its strength and which elements are the most important for making my case.1) Continual mis-gendering2) Expecting me to do menial tasks.3) Second guessing & micro-managing things that I do.4) being picky and not consistent with others regarding timekeeping5) Different rules of conduct for him and for me.6) Squashing financial consideration awarded me by CFO/HR7) Isolating me from others in the company.8) Not considering my 34 years of technical expertise9) Supporting Trans but picking me up on the slightest slip up. E.g. dress code and bathroom policy10) Expecting me to do the jobs of three people. manager, engineer and technician. Staff left/moved not replaced)11) Insisting I meet with him alone to discuss difficult work topics rather than be there with two of my peers and then complaining that he didn't want a meeting with 18 people. (Silly I know but that is a real situation)Is the above sufficient or am I trying to ride a dead horse!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11)
