I need an employment lawyer in. Not sure what you are asking
I went through a PIP process and I honored it faithfully. I was verbally told at the end of the process that I would be paid through Dec. 30 (my last day was Dec. 18.)

So, I've been having a hard time contacting HR, bc I was only given a skimpy PIP doc with no contact names or phone numbers. I'm still waiting for them to mail me my paystub. And now I'm concerned that they will stiff me on severance and even unemployment. I haven't returned the PIP statement yet and I need a lawyer to read it and advise me. Thank you… read more
