My LWIA has passed a rule that new start-up training providers
My LWIA has passed a rule that new start-up training providers must have one year of accreditation and a successful training record before being approved as a training provider and receiving federal funding. Doesn't the Workforce Development Act of 1998 make provision for newly accredited training providers with no training history to participate? Also, although a LWIA can apply new rules, doesn't this rule nullify the Federal statute that make provision for new start-up trainers?
My current position is a branch manager/loan officer. In November
My current position is a branch manager/loan officer. In November 29' 2010 I notified the company I was changing companies. They agreed to keep my office open until I closed my loans. I submitted the office expenses and reimbursements in dec 2010 covering nov expenses and part of dec expenses. Although the branch general ledger had funds, the owner refused to pay the expenses until I received letters from my vendors stating the final bill. On Jan 11th we closed our last loan. I completed the final billing letters on Jan 17. On Jan.24 the company paid out only the bills and did not reimburse me. I have not received my final check. The money owed is over 7000 plus the reimbursement income of 1200. Legally what should I do? File small claims or which labor board do I file with to have them investigated? Thank you. Michelle Ota
I am 61 yrs old and was just let go from the company I worked
I am 61 yrs old and was just let go from the company I worked for. I have around 9 yrs with the company and recently was asked to fill out a performance review. Our head of the dept. said that this review was not used to get rid of people. The Human resources person said I was being let go because of budget cute, job elimination and performance. Now I hear that two other people from other depts(younger than me) will be doing the same job I was doing. What recourse do I have if any. I was given 3.85 weeks of severence and my earned vacation time. No paid medical insurance was given. This is a big concern. Thanks

There is a class of worker that are "Paid by the piece".
There is a class of worker that are "Paid by the piece". Some industries where piece rate pay jobs are common are agricultural work, cable installation, call centers, writing, editing, translation, truck driving, data entry, carpet cleaning, mail sorting, craftwork and manufacturing.How many people in the state of Kentucky receive their pay through piece rate?Just looking for a 'fairly' accurate number, no demographics.
If I where supposed to be interviewed for outstanding
If I where supposed to be interviewed for outstanding employee in my companies newspaper, and I was denied that because two members of management are discriminating against me, based on me standing up to them both for being rude and disrespectful to me. What are my options and what areas can I claim the have violated?

I repeatedly notified my Direct Manager, who is the Plant
I repeatedly notified my Direct Manager, who is the Plant Quality Director as well as the HR Director of the industrial hydraulic plant I was employed with for almost 5 years of illegal refurbishment of defective product and resale to the same, or on some cases alternate customers as "new" product (this was being performed by the service department). On August 17th I found myself in a meeting with my Manager & the HR Director entitled "email from Heather Ragard". I had no idea what it was about. My Former Manager informed me that it was "a meeting intended to protect me" while we waited for the HR Director to arrive (he was 15 minutes late). When he arrived he had a written warning letter citing things such as "leaving the plant without authorization" (I had an approved / documented 1/2 day of vacation). Not submitting a report to Germany on time (I had an email from my Manager telling me he did not care about the report because he needed me to do something else). I honestly thought the meeting was to address my huge concerns over safety & reliability of the "refurbished sold as new" hydraulics. I have never had a verbal warning much less a "written" warning in my ENTIRE LIFE. I had a panic attack for 45 minutes which the 2 gentlemen watched. I gave my 2 weeks notice in an attempt to end the meeting because I couldn't breath & I thought i was having a heart attack.I had a follow up with my Primary Physican today (she has been treating me for stress & anxiety for over a year). I told her I was thinking about notifying the company ethics / legal department because to spite the fact that i have escaped the extreme anxiety, I'm still troubled deeply by the fact that something very wrong is going on & no one seems to care. My Physician said she agreed it was the right thing to do, but advised that I have an attorney of my own before moving forward (it is a very large company).Is this a valid point?
