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 an offer from a company which I was terminated from 4
I have an offer from a company which I was terminated from 4 years ago. I am now on total disability, however, SSA has programs which you can return to work without being penalized. I'd like to accept the offer but do I have to tell my employer that I am in this program? Also, the employer has a long term disability benefit that starts after 1001 hrs of employment which is in the time limit of this program, can I accept this benefit?

I was interviewing with a company for a director spot at the end of July I was asked to fill-out background paperwork. About two weeks later I inquired about the status of my background and was told in email "Thanks for following up. Your background check was a full pass. We don't normally contact references during the background check stage, and will use your passed background check as an indication of good standing. The next step, given that the entire team is in agreement, would be to make an offer to you. Unfortunately, I don't have an exact date on when you can expect an update but I do know we are aiming for October start dates". Yesterday I received the thank but no thanks email. I was very surprised and wondered if they broke any employment rules
