My employer is telling me that I do not get holiday pay as a 36 hour full time employee, but 40 hour employees do. They said the reason I don't is because I work four days and it's a benefit to have a day off during the week. I think this is very unfair and I want to know if there are any... Read more »

Sadly, workers' compensation does not provide you with any guarantee that you will be returned to the same shift or even the same job title as before your injury. However, if you fail to report to an offered position within your work restrictions it may result in a reduction or even...Read more »
My job duties haven’t changed, I have been in a management position for over 3 years. I work 75% of the time on our production line to keep operations going.

Unfortunately, there is no law that requires paid time off, so employers have a lot of discretion to make the rules regarding when (and how much) they offer. However, this may be worth bringing a complaint to the attention of your HR department and explaining the discrepancy if you have not already...Read more »

On January 18th we were notified that we were being let go from our position that day with no notice at all. Our Temp Agency was not aware of this till the day they ended our contract. Was that legal? If not how do we set up a class action against them?
I'd like to know more information because the answer likely depends on whether you had a contractual relationship with CVS or just the temp agency. The at-will doctrine applies in Pennsylvania and essentially allows an employer to terminate an employee for any reason or no reason. There are...Read more »
If it's the employer's computer they have a right of access. If you use it for personal things that is your risk. They can take the computer tomorrow, it's theirs. They can access the information any way they wish. It's theirs.

You are leaving out important facts. What was the legal bar to your employment all that time? You could have picked up a SS number on line if you needed one. What opportunities did you miss? Were you a government employee?
They would have to continue your unemployment benefits. As to your rights, suggest you contact a member of the Pennsylvania Association for Justice who handles employment issues. They give free consults.
So far, it is not illegal. The law about Covid vaccination is in a process of constant changes due to the differing opinions of diverse groups.
