One person had hourly and my boss took it away. I got just 50% the hairstyle not including the hair, accessories, or products. I also ran the food market in the back which they said was illegal. And they never paid overtime. I also had to work open to close everyday because it was just me. I also... View More
If you worked at this person's salon you were owed at least minimum wage, with "time and a half" for overtime for all hours worked after having already worked 40 hours per week. And if they didn't pay you, you're probably also owed liquidated damages equal to the...View More
I work for the NYC Department of Education. I have been wrongfully demoted. I don't feel like my union has my best interest at heart. Can I file an article 78 on my own, or do I need my union to fight for me?
My company recently had a mass layoff event. However, within my team, I was the only one affected. I’m also the only one on the team currently on maternity leave. When I asked why my job was getting cut and what would happen to my responsibilities, the answer was ‘we can’t say.’ I have long... View More
My daughter was let go without a reason. Now her former boss is telling people that she was fired for racial slurs. So far, two stories have been said and neither are true. Is there anything we can do to stop this?
When I own a business (e.g. bakery, coffeeshop etc.) am I LEGALLY allowed to deny service to people of a specific ethnicity (e.g. african-american), sexuality, gender etc. and/or deny them employment?

You quite possibly have a disability discrimination case, depending upon how "reasonable" your request to work from home was. Probably more important, however, is the fact that you haven't been paid OT in 3 years. If you are a nonexempt employee, and are therefore entitled to...View More

You should contact an experienced employment/labor attorney to go over the details of your case. From the small amount available in this public forum, it certainty sounds like you have reason to be concerned.

I work at dominoes as a delivery driver. So i guess i might've broke the glass door by exiting by using my foot to push the door open causing it to crack. Anyways whether I actually broke it or not I don't know, say i did break the door, no one actually saw me do it. My boss just says... View More
I agree with Mr. Urba. The most important thing is that the policy of not reimbursing unused vacation time to terminated employees be applied fairly to everyone. If any similarly situated employee was paid his unused vacation time upon termination, you are probably also entitled to be similarly...View More

If you are a non-exempt employee (and therefore entitled to overtime if you work over 40 hours per week), what you are describing is unlawful. More information is needed about your employment to determine if you are exempt.
My boss does want to pay me 12 hours overtime because she said it wasn’t approved but regardless I worked it so isn’t she still obligated to pay me ? Also I was promoted to a manager and then demoted me in two months because she hired someone without a Real reason and then dropped my pay.
If you are a non-exempt employee, your boss must pay you 1.5 times your regular hourly rate for all hours worked after having already worked 40 hours per week. She can't use your alleged lack of authorization as an excuse for not paying you overtime.
