Hello, my father passed away last year in October and it is now February. I have called and called the agency (People Ready) my dad worked for (he worked as a carpenter through a temp agency) and I have left voicemails and even spoke to someone who said they would call me back, but no one has...

You might retain an attorney to contact them. A quick letter would likely not cost much, and the estate may be able to reimburse that cost. See ORS 652.190 for who is supposed to get the check to ensure you are the correct person before demanding the check.

I was fired on Jan,16 2020 for not being a good fit for the company even though I got along with everyone I worked with. I had been working for them since May 2019 with no issues at all no complaints. I was even sent a text and an email from my bosses on the 16th stating I was scheduled to work and... Read more »
I was told verbally that I was to be terminated and this was confirmed by email from HR. Further HR email says their understanding is they won’t supply termination paperwork until I’ve worked another month and a half. I’m fairly certain this is because they haven’t hired anyone to replace... Read more »
Other than COBRA and benefits related documents, they do not have to provide you any sort of termination paperwork, assuming this is a private, non-union job. And any paperwork they would be required to do, such as COBRA, is at the time of your last day or later.
Can an employer threaten employees with termination if co-workers, as witnesses for a fired employee? In an unemployment hearing. I went to my hearing without any witnesses or evidence. I know I could have subpoenaed witnesses but I respected their fear termination. Of course, I was denied again.... Read more »

Due to this, I have not been paid for the hours I have worked and its about to be payday again. I fear it hasn’t been resolved And I will go another month without pay. Can I demand to be paid immediately? I live in Portland Oregon. I am still working for the company so this wouldn’t have been... Read more »
Yes, if they terminated you, your final check was due no later than the end of the next business day. Now, forcing them to pay immediately is not possible, but you can put pressure on them since they already owe you a penalty of 8 hours of pay for each day they are late, which adds up. That penalty...Read more »
You need to start calling around for attorney's ASAP, as attorney's here cannot contact you (please don't contact me, I can't help you). Use the find a lawyer link above and find someone who does landlord/tenant or perhaps trusts and estates.
You can go after him for a penalty wage, which is 8 hours per day at your hourly rate for each day it was late. Attorney's usually do this on a contingency, meaning you don't pay them any fees unless they get something for you. Even at $15 per hour and if it was 10 days late, translates into a...Read more »
A 14-yr.-old was struck by a car on the corner by our property in 9/17. We learned of this in August 2019, when we received a letter from a lawyer saying we are partially liable because our hedge was overgrown, and our homeowners insurance should pay. The hedge was overgrown/very tall when we... Read more »
The reason given was “lack of confidence to do my job”. I asked for supporting documents and was given none. I saved the company 500k in payroll alone by cross training in my department rather than hiring. Just before I was let go I saved the company 78k in annual paper costs by switching to... Read more »
Based on what you wrote, no. Employment is at will, they can fire you for most any reason, and they do not have to give you the reason. Now, had they fired you because you were black, white, gay, straight, male, female, or similar (as in because you were one of those, not that you are one of those)...Read more »
