I have a employment attorney question regarding wrongful termination, retaliation, and defamation of characterJA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state you're in?Customer: I was let go and they said I wasn't a team player after 4.5 years of working with no warnings or ever being written up. A small group in my team formed a clique that takes walks with the boss and goes out to lunch and drinks for 1-2 hours some days while treating the others not in their little group as outcasts. I have taught and trained all other programmers that got hired after me and wrote documents that show step by step how to do our more difficult tasks. It was done to help us and any future programmers and sharing the knowledge. They are trying to get me to sign a severance agreement and release by Monday and offering 6 weeks pay if I waive my rights to any claim or action.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Maryland and no I'm reaching out to find out what I can do if anything.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that's it

I live in Phoenix, AZ. I was terminated this past Thursday

I live in Phoenix, AZ.I was terminated this past Thursday by my supervisor. His reasoning was 'differences in management philosophies'. I was written up once for not following his direction but never for anything else. All performance reviews were 'achieve expectations'.Do I have a right to go after compensation for wrongful termination? Clearly there is more to story but overall need to understand my options. When I say more the environment he was creating was very hostile and vendictive.

What to do if I am put on administrative leave without pay?

I want to know what I can do regarding being put on administrative leave without pay today in a clinic where I work as a nurse. I was only told that reason involves me getting verbal order to give shot to a client, gave the shot and then the provider said that no verbal order was given. I was told not to come back to work, that the clinic would investigate and get back to me within a week. How can I defend myself? Is the clinic allowed to not pay me while I am on leave? Am I entitled to unemployment while I am on administrative leave? Thank you for any suggestions you may have.The clinic is in California. The employment is a full time job.

I worked for a company 8 years. My immediate supervisor was

I worked for a company 8 years. My immediate supervisor was always mentioning to me that I needed to wear makeup and spend time fixing my hair. In 2013 she gave me a verbal warning about fixing my hair. In January she took the core management team to lunch at a Mexican resturant and said in front of everyone that I needed to spend more time on my looks, especially my hair. I had brought this to the attention of my corporate supervisors and nothing was ever done. In July I was not only expected to do my job, but that of another coworker who had quit the prior month. Things came to a head and I shared my concerns with a new corporate supervisor and was then contacted by the HR department. By then I was so overwhelmed with everything I told them I was going to retire early. I lost my bonus I was entitled to as well as my vacation time. Do I have grounds for compensation?

My husband was let go with no warning from his job. He had worked for the company for 13+ years. Often working 80-90 hr weeks. Many days not even stopping to take a lunch. He was a feedlot manager(therefore ag labor laws apply). He was fired in the middle of the month and given the whole months paycheck. He was also verbally promised a severance check of one months wages , which he did not receive. The home we lived in was on premises of the feedlot and were given 30 days to vacate premises. Do we have any recourse or should we cut our losses?

I slipped on ice back in February outside my home. I applied for FMLA through my employer. I was hurt on 2/15 and approved for FMLA until 3/8. After 3/8 I heard nothing from either my employer or Hartford. On April 26th my employer called to follow up and then started the disability process. Hartford feels I should have returned to work as soon as my cast came of on 3/22. The process was not started until April. Now my employer is requesting that I return the salary that I was given, thinking I was out on disability, from 3/22 to 5/24. They are looking to garnish my wages and if I don't the form consenting to this they will forward this to a collection agency. What are my options. I was under doctors care until 9/7 and did as my doctor asked during my disability. From the beginning my doctor indicated that this would be a 3 month injury. I am in NY
