Can an employee who was recently out sick for a week with a

Can an employee who was recently out sick for a week with a note from the doctor be called in and told that she cannot have any more time off for the rest of the year. She has 40 hours of vacation and was told that she cannot take it. She moved into a new position approximately 3 months ago and she was also told for the first time that it looks like she can't handle this position and she is now on 60 days probation. She has worked for this company for almost 6 years and has always been given outstanding evaluations. The man she now works for is rude, yells for her to come into his office all day long and disagree with all the training she has received to do this job. When she tries to talk with him he will not allow her to do so. Is any or all of this legal?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full timeJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

Question on wrongful termination, retaliation, defamation

I have a employment attorney question regarding wrongful termination, retaliation, and defamation of characterJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state you're in?Customer: I was let go and they said I wasn't a team player after 4.5 years of working with no warnings or ever being written up. A small group in my team formed a clique that takes walks with the boss and goes out to lunch and drinks for 1-2 hours some days while treating the others not in their little group as outcasts. I have taught and trained all other programmers that got hired after me and wrote documents that show step by step how to do our more difficult tasks. It was done to help us and any future programmers and sharing the knowledge. They are trying to get me to sign a severance agreement and release by Monday and offering 6 weeks pay if I waive my rights to any claim or action.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Maryland and no I'm reaching out to find out what I can do if anything.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that's it

I was with a company for 8 years; first in senior management

I was with a company for 8 years; first in senior management and the lady 3 years in middle mgt. I'm 68 years old and last Thursday I was told that my position was eliminated. This action came out of the blue as I have had a derogatory review or even a written warning about my performance. In fact, over the last 8 years, I have had numerous accomdations and recognition awards. They offered me a week severance pkg. for every year of service. Is this fair?JA: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?Customer: YesJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At willJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, but I'm unavailable at this time.

I worked for a company 8 years. My immediate supervisor was

I worked for a company 8 years. My immediate supervisor was always mentioning to me that I needed to wear makeup and spend time fixing my hair. In 2013 she gave me a verbal warning about fixing my hair. In January she took the core management team to lunch at a Mexican resturant and said in front of everyone that I needed to spend more time on my looks, especially my hair. I had brought this to the attention of my corporate supervisors and nothing was ever done. In July I was not only expected to do my job, but that of another coworker who had quit the prior month. Things came to a head and I shared my concerns with a new corporate supervisor and was then contacted by the HR department. By then I was so overwhelmed with everything I told them I was going to retire early. I lost my bonus I was entitled to as well as my vacation time. Do I have grounds for compensation?

I am 64 years old. I was fired after 16 and a half years

I am 64 years old. I was fired after 16 and a half years because I was told based on timing on a video tape on my leaving the women's bathroom, and someone going in after me, that I was responsible for smearing feces on the bathroom floor. They claim there were three incidences of this...I do not know the dates, nor did I see the videos. I was not written up or given a warning....this, as you can imagine, came out of no where. I was expecting to retire by early 2018. I recently received one of the best job reviews I have ever received a few months ago, so I am not a disgruntled employee. I liked my job.They have no witnesses to my alleged actions. Do you think this might be ageism?

My husband was let go with no warning from his job. He had

My husband was let go with no warning from his job. He had worked for the company for 13+ years. Often working 80-90 hr weeks. Many days not even stopping to take a lunch. He was a feedlot manager(therefore ag labor laws apply). He was fired in the middle of the month and given the whole months paycheck. He was also verbally promised a severance check of one months wages , which he did not receive. The home we lived in was on premises of the feedlot and were given 30 days to vacate premises. Do we have any recourse or should we cut our losses?
