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

I have been told I am being replaced for no good reason. I
I have been told I am being replaced for no good reason. I owed a substantial amount of money which I do not want to lose out on. I have been given no notice of my employment status and the new guy starts on this upcoming Monday. What advice would you give me. It should also be noted that I have not been given written reviews in violation of the company's stated policy. I feel I am being discriminated against. My boss allowed me to glance at his written review he wrote which rated me 4/5, but I have never seen a written review from him. My last verbal review from him rated me excellant and a valuable asset to the company. Also I am being asked to train the new guy and work with the outside CPA firm on the upcoming corporate review. What advice do you have for me? I am in MI.
