Where can I find policy/laws around incentive payout. I
Where can I find policy/laws around incentive payout. I worked for a "franchise" system through mid Jan, and then transitioned to the corporate offices. We had quarterly incentive goals and completed 4th quarter. The previous company has stated they do not owe me since I was not employed on the date of payout? I work in the state of Florida.
My husband resigned his position due to the relentless harrassment
My husband resigned his position due to the relentless harrassment from the low level mgmt in that dept. He worked for this comp for over 12 years with no discipline problems, no complaints from supervisors, and high marks on performance reviews. Until he took a new position under these two particular mangers. From day one they started changing the verbal agreements made, and this continued weekly. He was subjected to new rules and requirements that the other employees in the same position did not have to follow. He was asked to falsify purchase orders descriptions for the Director, who loaded the supplies up and took them to his personal residence to build a boat lift. After a few of those instances my husband called the person over purchasing and requested to have his purchasing rights revoked so that he would not have to do that anymore. About the same time as this the CEO resigned from the comp. the same CEO that personally selected my husband and recruited him for this position, once he was gone the VP and Director continued the harrassment, the female admin was relentless. She blatently disrespected him belittled him and harassed him over his military service. Stating that he was "too" military he used too many military terms, he was told by her that no one really cared he was a us marine. She twisted his words and called HR to say that he was going to shoot the place up.. Nothing like that was ever said or insinuated by him. So he filed a formal complaint with HR stating that he was afraid thT she would continue to make up things and cause him undo stress and possible problems with law enforcement. The HR person was very sympathetic and led him to believe that they were concerned that a well liked 12 yr veteran of the company was seriously concerned about what this woman might say or do.. Several days passed and he was called into a meeting only to have the Director and VP setting there with a two page write up on him, with items such as.. "sometime between Jan and Feb of 2014 you..." My husband didnt even know what they were talking about on nearly all of the items.. He refused to sign it and resigned. The director then distributed a copy of the unsigned write up along with a directive stating he resigned, to numerous people in the company. Many of which have no business seeing his confidential personnel records. Also a note that my husband also prior to this had given his official resignation as March 15 so that he would be there for the bonus distributions for the 2015 year. But now they do not want to pay him his bonus.He was disciminated against for his military service, also because of his hearing loss that causes him to speek loudly. Which he was told numerous times he was too loud. He was the employee that recvd the highest and best reviews from his classes, the students loved him.. As a matter of fact a lot of people liked him except for the few people in this new dept. we feel like he was retaliated on because of the purchase orders he was told to do... And once he no longer had athe ability to do them they strted trying to get him to quit.. And the admin has a reputation of being a rude and foul mouthed woman but no one can say anything to her because her mother in law is a VP can we sue for the bonus he earnedHe recvd a bonus everyyear quarterly and they were paid to the quarterly people in 2015. So the company met the requirements for the bonus to be paid, he had no write ups and good reviews.. Despite the working conditionsSent from my iPhoneSent from my iPhone
I am a small business owner in CA. I have an employee
Hello, I am a small business owner in CA. I have an employee who has been working as Salary base (9:30am-2:00pm Mon-Fri) but we asked the employee to include extra 10-hours of overtime (per month) if the situation demands. We added this extra 10-hours because he sometime has to go outside of the office and comes back late or sometimes he could not finish necessary jobs on time. However, in 2015, he is barely using the extra 10-hours and we feel that we are paying him too much. We've offered him to work hourly instead of salary but he does not want to accept. We wanted him to keep working for us but by reviewing his duties and his performance, we believe his salary is too much. We talked about changing his employment status twice this month. Last one on last Friday. And he sent me an email he is taking a day off today because he is sick. What is the best way to deal with this situation.

I recently had a job interview and during the interview I was told what the wage was for the position. At that time I wrote down the wage that was given. The next day I received a phone call and given an offer of employment over the phone. I again inquired about the wage to make sure I was understanding of it. Again I was given the exact same wage amount that I was given during the interview. After the verbal confirmation of what the wage would be, I accepted the position. Yesterday I started the job and 2 hrs. into my first day I was taken down to HRD to complete my paperwork. During the process HRD told me my wage was different than what I was previously told and turned out to be .50 less an hour than what was verbally agreed to during the offer of employment. I explained the information that I had previously been given and she apologized saying it was a mistake. I did not complete any further paperwork and have not so far. The position I was hired for is a Reading para pro in a Michigan school district. I believe I should be paid the amount I was told as I viewed that as a verbal wage agreement in which I based my acceptance of the position. Please advise.

Signed an agreement for tuition reimbnursement in June of 2012.View more employment law questions
Signed an agreement for tuition reimbnursement in June of 2012. "I acknowledge, understand and agree that if I separate from emplolyment with Louisville Metro Govern,net by resignation or termination within six (6) months of receipt of the reimbursed funds, that I will repay the funds received for tuition to Louisville Metro Government. If a payment plan is needed to repay the funds, I will request and make arrangements with Human Resources prior to my last day of employment with Louisville Metro Government. In the event that I fail to make such arrangements, I agree to have the full cost of tuition reimbursement (including the additional $1,000 if applicable) deducted from my wages." I gave notice on December 26th, 2012 and my last day of employment January 26, 2013. There was no communication from former employer that I owed any tuition until January 14, 2014 when they threatened to sue me for the tutition. Since, they did not take the money out of my final three pay checks and did not say anything until January 14, 2014 I thought I did not owe them anything. Can they come after me for the money at this point?
