This has happened severl times since my employment. close to 2 years now. Every day you go in it could be your last. I have over 40 years of experience and have never been in this situation.. I was in the hospital for an infection from the dirty coin machine and they did not pay me my full salary. THey said I was on disability. Which was not so. They had to cut me a manual check and to date still do not have the stub with the break dow. Many more things are going onJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NJJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: full time. now since they just fired everyone in an other branch they want me to drive over and hour and half to fill in.

I am in CT. A former employer of mine is being sued for

I am in CT. A former employer of mine is being sued for wrongful termination and age and color discrimination by an employee I used to supervise. This employee was terminated by my ex-employer after I left the organization.The ex-employee's lawyer is requesting to depose me on the basis that I was her supervisor for a portion of the period. Questions.1) Do I need to agree to this request ? Can I refuse to participate?2) My ex-employer's lawyer has suggested that they will represent me in this deposition. Is that sufficient or do I need to get my own attorney?3) Since it is my ex-employer that is being sued, how far will any judgement against the ex-employer affect me.

I had worked for a provider agency for 8.5 years, was

I had worked for a provider agency for 8.5 years, was manager for 3 years. In 2013 I became ill and could not work every day due to COPD. I have worked out of my home since then. On October 14, 2016 I received call from manager advising we had to cut positions due to a financial problem. My position was cut, I had more experience in that area than anyone in the office. I did not make a big salary on I started to draw my SS benefits. Two ladies make more money than I and had jobs that required answering the phone, and collecting the logs. Three months before I was let go I found out one of the employee's was billing on employees that no longer worked for the company and cashing those checks. I advised my boss more than once that she was guilty of Medicaid fraud and should be reported but he said he needed to get his money back, it's not his money it's the state's money. I truly believe I was let go for that reason. Do I have a wrongful termination case.

Since June of 2016, I have undergone extreme mental anguish

Since June of 2016, I have undergone extreme mental anguish and exhaustive depression caused by Dr. Rev Hillstrom's actions and unfair appraisal, and by his embarrassing and unauthorized distribution of shaming personal information to the entire equity department staff. He wrongfully breached my privacy, and was negligent and acted in violation of my rights.His lack of knowledge about the job description, culturally incompetence, inability to follow equity director and/or supervisor's protocols, and retaliatory demeanor, all have caused me traumatic and devastating consequences during the past three months. After six years of providing unmatched services to the demands of school staff, students, parents and families across the entire school district, and meeting all standards from my three previous supervisors, I cannot accept Dr. Rev Hillstrom's negative and erroneously derogatory appraisal, after knowing me just a year.
