My daughter is 19 and was employed by a local summer camp.

My daughter is 19 and was employed by a local summer camp. They claim that they are legally able to pay her and the rest of their employees as independent contractors through Dec 2016 because they are a nonprofit. My daughter was just fired yesterday but has been asking for copies of her timesheet for the last few weeks. We were just told that she would get her final paycheck but they had turned over all the timesheets to an auditor and then an attorney to make sure they are all ok before we get them. Is that legal?

My son-in-law is a computer engineer who works from home,

My son-in-law is a computer engineer who works from home, and troubleshoots problemsthat his company's clients needs help solving when they call in to him.He is paid a salary by his employer and is definitely NOT in business for himself.Last year, his employer changed his status from an employee to an independent contractor.To me, that was solely in the interest (to save different costs that my son-in-law would now have to pay) of the employer and was NOT allowed by law (he lives and works in New York). Is this wrong on the part of the employer? Also, what taxes exactly would my son-in-law be obligated to pay that was being paid by the employer? Thank you.

I was let go from my job and given a separation agreement.

I was let go from my job and given a separation agreement. My position was "eliminated" but there is more to it. One thing is that this occurred 2 days after I turned in my FMLA paperwork. I need advice about the separation agreement they asked me to sign and to know if I was wrongfully terminated. You help is greatly appreciated.

I've been with my company years as a salaried employee in a

I've been with my company for 5 years as a salaried employee in a senior level position. My husband was recently promoted to a position out of state. I'd like to keep my job working remotely, also I'm pregnant. I haven't told my employer either of those things yet. Do I tell my employer I'm pregrant first? Then tell them about the move and my request to work remotely? Or reverse? Or neither? I'd really like to maintain my job especially to keep my maternity benefits. Also my job is completely able to be remote and I work from home 1 day a week currently.

Im currently employed full-time as an admin assistant. Been

Hi Im currently employed full-time as an admin assistant. Been with the practice for 5 years now. I'm also 33 weeks pregnant. My doctor requested for me to be on maternity leave by July 18th. Last day at work would be July 15th. Due to the severity of low back pain. Now, my manager told me that they will only cover the 6 weeks for me. That my job wont be guaranteed. I spoke to Human Resource and they told me that the reason why they would only cover 6 weeks because they don't abide by the family leave act since they are under 50 employees. So they don't have to hold my position. They will basically hold it for those amount of weeks. So at this point not sure if I should leave by July 15th or continue to work until a few days prior my due date which is August 19th.

I am planning on starting a postcards distribution business

i am planning on starting a postcards distribution business to promote small businesses in NYC and I'm planning on hiring freelancers paid by hour from Craigslist to start with. If they are reliable I'd call them again for more work.1- Besides the hourly pay, do I have any other legal obligations towards the freelancers I employ by the hour?2- Will i need some sort of an insurance to protect myself and others? is that insurance mandatory? if so, what is that insurance called?3- I'm mostly basing my business online (work from home, solicit by email and social media, recruit online, etc) do I need another type of insurance for my business as a home /office business? or something to protect me against disputes with clients? if so what is it called?4- do i need a permit from the city to distribute postcards hand to hand or door to door (door hangers)? if not, is there any other law enforcement agency that can cause me headaches of any kind? (due to the nature of the business)is there any other legal aspect I should also be aware of that I did not mention above?please let me know.

I work as a 2nd shift supervisor major medical company in

Hi, I work as a 2nd shift supervisor for a major medical company in Florida. Recently, I've been placed on a 90 day - Performance Improvement Plan for missing my project dates. The PIP new due dates for the projects are unrealistic and unachievable. Knowing the company is downsizing I feel it's a ploy. Plus, the projects I'm assigned doesn't fall under my job description but under a manufacturing engineer II. I'm 1 of 3 supervisors (2 on dayshift) and the only one that was not assigned a laptop to work from home. The other supervisors have two leads each. I have one that's been on maternity leave for close to 5 months. Working 2nd shift clearly has limited hours of resources. That, along with not having a laptop and assigned leads. Puts me at a disadvantage. Do I have a leg to stand on in regards ***** ***** my job?
