I worked in a restaurant in Sedona Az as a Hostess. I witnessed a chef about to stab a manager and called the police. Two weeks after the incident occurred the owner asked me if I was going to testify against the restaurant I said not but I will testify against the chef. He told me it was a conflict of interest and sent me home. I am currently collecting unemployment. He told the unemployment people he let me go because he smelled liquor on my breath!

I have been off work for a work for surgery. I got a note

I have been off work for a work for surgery. I got a note from my doctor on Thursday morning that excuses me from for another week because my doctor told me to be careful. On Friday, I received a call telling me they have dissolved my job into other areas. I was told by a lawyer who can't practice right now that I have a pretty good case against them. Do I have a case against them? Thank you in advance.

I am a truck driver employed by a very large corporation. I

I am a truck driver employed by a very large corporation. I have had several verbal and written warnings including a five day suspension, specifically regarding speed along with other things against company policy. Most of the other drivers in the company have been doing the same, without consequence. I feel that I am being retaliated against for having required management to follow some of the rules regarding dispatch procedures so that we as drivers know what to expect. ( There were huge favoritism issues involved.)Most recently, I have been threatened with revocation of my driving privilege by one of the HR reps for not being able to remember a casual conversation that a group of my fellow employees had two to three weeks before I was aware of something I had said which was construed as "inappropriate" by one of the female employees. She apparently took the issue to HR where an investigation took place during the following two or three weeks. I was notified that I was to write an account of the conversation, of which I am not able to recall, just know that it was a lighthearted conversation with a lot of joking.I called the HR rep that's dealing with this issue, after my terminal manager could not tell me what the outcome of this situation was. When I asked her about it the conversation went back and forth. After a few minutes she became seriously agitated, threatening to have my drivers qualification revoked pending a psychological evaluation with regards ***** ***** ability to remember the conversation. She went on to say that there will be disciplinary action taken.I am extremely distraught over the speed issues, as it is very difficult at times to control a trucks speed, the instant you go over the speed limit and the fact that most all of the other drivers don't have to worry about it, because they are not "under the microscope".I am also worried about being terminated for the "inappropriate" comment issue. Oh, the HR rep also stated that this was not the first complaint that they had about me. I asked her about that, she wouldn't tell me anything about that. I have no idea and am looking for some help here. I have several friends and fellow employees, that will vouch for the fact, that I wouldn't say something inappropriate to anybody intentionally nor am I driving any differently than most of the other drivers in this company.

I was on workers' comp for 3 months. Three days after the dr. released me to go back to work my employer said I was no longer a good fit. I was never even given the chance to go back and prove I could do my job. They have offered me a small severance package, Is it legal to be fired like that?

I'm a college student who had an on campus job I was

I'm a college student who had an on campus job I was verbally terminated from. I wasn't asked to sign anything, or sent anything concerned the termination. About two weeks later, I sent a certified letter in the mail to HR stating I believed I was wrongfully terminated. I provided a copy of the policies that specifically pertained to my department about termination of employment. I said none of the disciplinary policies about termination pertained to me and asked to be let resign. Not getting a response, I sent another letter reiterating I respectfully ***** ***** I could resign due to believing I was wrongfully terminated and would like a written answer. Weeks later no response? Many legal websites stated exceptions to At Will state policy is if employers do not follow their own company policies. Is there specific time frame that requires them to respond to my letters? Should I send resignation letter if they continue not to respond? I don't qualify for Legal Aid and I will.

Do we have a valid case to pursue?: My wife, an RN in OR was

Do we have a valid case to pursue?: My wife, an RN in OR was terminated this week for a HIPPA violation. The hospital claims that she viewed my 36 yr son's file w/o authorization from him. He resides w/ us and says he dropped the signed form off at the Drs. office. She reviewed his X-Ray results because 1. He just had duel hand surgery 2. He fell on his hands badly injuring them. 3. After "Daily" calls to the caregiver (a hospital employee) she never contacted him in two weeks w/ the results. 4. The X-Ray results clearly showed an untreated fracture. I believe her termination was set up to cover up a multitude of medical errors on my son to include failure to refer three times on different medical issues for periods up to a year and more resulting in permanent injury to my son. My wide was also on a project to improve "Continuum of care" and she clearly documented many patient care errors and QC got involved. Bot***** *****ne, mgmt did want her around... She's 63, was voted as the best nurse navigator in the system (Cancer Ctr) and her supervisor, fellow RN's and the Doctors are terribly upset. There are HIPPA errors all the time there and no one has been terminated, particularly on a family member and first time issue. My son contacted the hospital and advised that he submitted the form and submitted another one. They did not contact him.

I have accepted a job offer as an accountant for a

I have accepted a job offer as an accountant for a 32-employee non-profit organization.They are already doing the background, credit, and 5-panel drug test and I am confident I will pass those.However, they also require a physical exam *after* I start the job (during the 1st week). I am very concerned because I don't know what they will be asking me and I have been undergoing treatment for severe depression and anxiety for years. As long as I have treatment, I am able to function normally.I tried to casually (so as to not raise red flags) ask the hiring manager what the physical exam was about, and she said "it's no big deal, they just basically want to make sure you can sit at a desk . . ." What? Of course I can.Anyway, I'm guessing they'll also ask about my medical history (depression, anxiety, hypothyroidism) and medications (an SSRI, a benzodiazepine (klonopin), levothyroxine). I'm so scared that they will decide at this point that they don't want to keep me on after they find this out.Or maybe they will find out about my medical issues and decide I would be too expensive to insure?Anyway, I don't know what to do and I don't want to give notice at my current job if there is a possibility the new employer could fire me after they do the physical.
