A lot of people in my experience don’t want to hire me for anything at all and I’ve also seen some horrible bands play, others just have a stage going to waste. I really would be a musician if I can get hired. Your thoughts on how to get hired por favor?

The answer to your question depends on many facts not included in your post. An attorney would have to be allowed to understand the precise terms of the agreement including what payment terms had been negotiated.
They still have not paid my bonus. During my last bonus cycle in the Fall, they removed money for something that was not part of my metrics. They also deducted money from my final checks for my fleet vehicle, which they had already picked up. In addition, today, January 25th, I still have not... Read more »

I have a LCA on file that has an end date of 1/19/23. I went out on pregnancy disability for 4 of those months and my manager wants to extend the LCA even though acknowledging that I have completed all the terms of the LCA. Is this legal?

You need to locate and discuss this with an attorney who can review the...Read more »

I was terminated on 1/18/23 for no real reason and was given a check and then said my other half of my pay would be deposited and I’m yet to see any of my money. And the check is on hold? Is this legal?

A willful failure to do so gives the employee the right to seek Waiting Time Penalties equal to one day of pay for each day the employee is made to wait for the entire final check, up to a...Read more »
