Recently I applied for a position and during the interview I

Hello, my name is***** applied for a position and during the interview I was told I would have to meet certain conditions, like a level two clearance. Not a problem for me. A couple days after the interview, I was called and offered the job. I accepted and I was told to come in for processing. During this "processing," I was given a extensive list of things to do. This list included (1) going to the police station for a local background check, (2) going to get a Live Scan fingerprinting, (3) filling out an affidavit, job application, providing a copy of my driver's license and social security card, (4) going on line to obtain a HIPAA certificate, and (5) filling out employment forms W-4, I9, emergency contact sheet and direct deposit form. The to-do-list also gave me 60 days to provide an overview of APD Waiver Provider Requirements certificate. I was told when they gave me the checklist, that I couldn't start work until my background clearance and Live Scan fingerprinting was completed. I spoke with my employer this morning was told I would not be paid for this extensive work activity because they could not hire me per the Agency for Disabled People's guidelines until after the background checks and HIPAA certificate was completed. I feel I should be compensated for this work. If I had not believed I was hired and indeed an employee, I would not have done this work nor accepted an position requiring this activity of me (without compensation). I'm confused. Who's right?

I have always filed an exempt status on my W4. Recently a

I have always filed an exempt status on my W4. Recently a new person takes over payroll and states that I can't file exempt anymore. Rather than talking to me about the issue she takes it upon herself to change my W4 to single w 0 without any permission or acknowledgement she does payroll. This made my check $179 short. Is this legal?

I have a question about a job that I recently resigned from.

Hello! I have a question about a job that I recently resigned from. The owner/manager moved to a different state (over 30 hours away) and hired me as the "manager". However, I was not given any responsibilities as a manager...had no access to any of the business bank accounts (even though I was expected to run payroll), have emails stating that I was not allowed to make ANY decisions without consulting with her, and she never communicated directly to me....only through other coworkers. When she began insisting that I or someone else at the office needed to forge her name on payroll and banking checks and documents, I and two other employees quit without notice. When we quit, we took the folders in the unsecured filing cabinet (ALL employees had access) that had our social security numbers and drivers licenses, applications, and certifications. Those folders had a lot of personal information (but no performance reports or payroll records or anything like that) and were completely unsecured and with three of us leaving, we had no idea who would have access to that information. Now, our former employer is holding our last paychecks and telling us it was illegal to take that information. Is it? And can she legally hold our paychecks hostage? We live in the state of PA. We did realize after the fact that our i9 and w4 were in the folder and we emailed an electronic copy directly to the owner.

We have a part-time employee who filed exempt status on her

We have a part-time employee who filed exempt status on her W4 for company to withhold not taxes. She recently discovered when getting her W2 that no taxes were withheld and is very upset stating that she will take legal action against the company for not withholding taxes. We have her electronic signature and the date that this form was completed as our process is electronic. Are there any risks from an employee with this type of allegation? We sent her a copy of her electronic signature and she is claiming that she did not complete the form and someone else must have.

My name is ***** ***** I have a misclassification of

Customer: Hi my name is ***** ***** I have a misclassification of contractor and breach of contract for a W-2 to 1099 JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: I was found by a recruiter and was offered a position on a contract to hire basis. I went through a normal interview process with the contract company. I signed my offer letter letter and terms of employment with the contract company stating I am a W-2 employee, I filed my I-9 and W-4 with the company that contracted me out to another company. I have received no pay stubs for the full 8 months I worked for them. I have requested it several times with no response. I recently requested my W-2 from them to file my taxes and was given a 1099 and was told that I am responsible for my taxes. my question is do I have a case? because I can't afford to pay the taxes that I owe and I really don't feel like I should have to. I completed the job as they had requested and was hired full time. The company I was contracted to I reported daily to, they supplied my computer and all of my software. the same company has now hired me full time on a w-2 bases, but i am now argueing with the contract company JA: OK got it.
