Louis George Fazzi's answer You should immediately begin the selection process for a good lawyer or law firm which focuses on the representation of employees in discrimination and retaliation cases. There are numerous highly qualified firms out there very capable of representing you.
You don't mention, however, who is conducting the investigation. I hope the case is being investigated by the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) or the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)....
Peter Munsing's answer You have no right to a raise absent a union contract or employment contract.you say the others get payroll plus bonus and profit sharing --are you saying now you are getting bonus and profit sharing but no pay?
If the first one, I don't see a wage hour case; in second one could have a wage hour case
Cynthia Pietrucha's answer In Illinois, terminating a public tenured teacher is a complicated process and usually requires due process via a hearing. This can involve hundreds of pages of paperwork, strict deadlines and appeal rights.
If she is in danger of being terminated, she should notify her union (where applicable) to see if a grievance can be filed and/or decisions appealed, and also immediately put her concerns in writing.
If she is already on a performance improvement plan (PIP), she...
Louis George Fazzi's answer No. The manager cannot legally do that to you. You should talk to a competent employment lawyer as soon as you can. And you should file a claim with the California Department of Employment and Housing (DFEH) immediately. Plus you can go to the Labor Commissioner's website (https://www.dir.ca.gov/dlse/) to file a claim there as well. Act promptly to protect your rights!
Leonard R. Boyer's answer There is probably know way to "force" your employer to help you bring your spouse to US, nor keep you as an employee. You really need to retain an experienced immigration attorney to find out your other options. H1B is not a Visa that will enable you to have what you want and there is no legal basis for your to sue your employer for emotional distress. Trump administration guidelines for summoning legal and undocumented immigrants before an immigration judge to start deportation procedures will...
Richard Yaskin's answer Probably not, as I believe that each party has the right to notice videotaped depositions under the federal rules of civil procedure and the District Court’s Local Rules. You should be able to obtain an agreement from defense counsel, or a consent order, limiting the dissemination of the video to litigation purposes only. You can hold the other party to give you the advance notice of videotaped deposition as is required by the federal rules.
Mr. Michael O. Stevens' answer Legally you never have show up, as slavery is illegal. But, if you don't show up you risk being fired. The real issue is if this is your first check, as they have something like 35 days for that first one.
Roy Lee Warren's answer Many times it may depend on the employer's policies. I will provide you a link to the Texas Payday" laws with TWC which I am sure will provide the answers you seek. Good luck.
Delivery of final wages can be made by the methods listed above. If an employee is laid off, discharged, fired, or otherwise involuntarily separated from employment, the final pay is due within six (6) calendar days of discharge. If the employee quits, retires, resigns, or otherwise leaves...
Leonard R. Boyer's answer There is no law that requires an employer to give an employee a day off for Thanksgiving. Not every comment that a person makes that another one does not like is a basis for discrimination.
Kirk Angel's answer The employer may be able to based on a US Supreme Court case that expanded the "ministerial" exemption in employment law. It is a complex issue that you will need to consult directly with an experienced employment attorney about to get a specific answer.
Ethan White's answer You could likely file in the Federal district court of either state, but there is a strong possibility it would get transferred from Illinois to Kansas since that is where the events occurred and where many witnesses will reside. Good luck.
Mitchell Feldman's answer If you require off for religious purposes you should request it off and explain its for observance and not for just to use as to just have off for convenience but if business has a need and asks you to work and others it’s not discriminatory. If it prevents you from going to church that may be a problem and employer should seek to get others, but asking people to work on holidays if legitimate need is not unlawful discrimination
Mr. Kent Thomas Jones Esq.'s answer Thanks for your question; however, it is impossible to tell you what to accept in settlement, because we don't know all of the facts. In 2002 and 2003, I practiced employment discrimination law exclusively. As I recall, if the case was very good, we would demand what a typical jury verdict would be. Sometimes the cases were worth nothing. Sometimes they were worth $10,000. Sometimes they were worth $400,000.
You really need to consult with a local employment discrimination...
