I'm sorry to hear about your experience. Assuming you are not a member of a Union, you are likely an at will employee. As such, you are provided very few rights under Alabama law. An at will employee may be terminated for good reason, bad reason or no reason at all. Exceptions primarily... Read more »

Do they have to pay me since they hired me and can I do something to make them pay me?
answered on Nov 16, 2022
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, you must be paid for all the hours that you work (regardless of whether you have a valid ID). You should contact an Alabama employment attorney to discuss your situation further, or you can file a complaint with the Department of Labor.

An Alabama attorney could probably advise best, but your question remains open for four weeks. In terms of your question on a class of plaintiffs, it could depend on the size of the pool of retirees. One option is to reach out to an employment attorney. Good luck
It was a traffic accident and have a criminal attorney but he’s in court and the employer is asking for my accident report. Do I have to submit the report and can they terminate me over it?

My employer wrote me 2 bad payroll checks and wrote my coworker 1 bad payroll check. He has not handled none of them and will not respond to calls or texts since I notified him they bounced. In addition he still has not paid me for hours worked 2 weeks ago.

Bad checks are criminal matters. You can take it to the district attorney for prosecution. You can sue him. Both options are lengthy.

There must be some reason your employer was willing to offer severance, which makes many factors relevant. Is there some claim you are waiving? Do you have an employment contract? Are others being offered the same severance? There is not near enough detail to know your rights from the limited... Read more »

You need to provide more information. Were you an employee or customer. What was the reason? Were you arrested? What were your injuries?
The system that we have is allowing employees to ring beer on Sunday. The employer knows and has not made a change to fix it. As a direct result, an employee has sold beer on two different occasions, not remembering that it was sunday. Management has now said that it is the employees responsibility... Read more »

If the employer has a rule (or is following local law) against selling beer on Sundays, then it can require its employees to not make beer sales on Sundays, regardless of whether the computer system allows the sale.

There is no specific statute for general retaliation. The protection is offered based on what you report. Protection is primarily offered based on reporting illegal discrimination or filing a worker's comp claim. It wouldn't be offered for reporting someone came in late or took too long... Read more »
