Asked in Employment Law for Tennessee

Q: Is there a time limit to seek professional help? Can something be done about a supervisor lying to you?

My supervisor has stated certain things, and then changed it up multiple times after i arrived to my job. Also, ive been covering a second person job multiple times with no extra pay when they have certain people that are fill ins that make more pay for that. Also, they keep over charging me for medical plan even after ive opt out of the medical plan and then wait until after im upset about it, to inform me that they owe me money. Can something be done about any of this? Thanks

A: More information is needed to answer your question. Generally, your supervisor can ask you to complete tasks outside of your typical job duties without paying you at a higher hourly rate for completing those tasks. Is your employer still taking deductions from your pay after you opted out of the medical plan and brought this to your employer's attention? If so, you should contact an employment attorney in your area to discuss your options.
