Because of my schedule I pump at 8:30 , my 15 min break is at 9 which I am no longer allowed to take. My boss also said I have to pump during my lunch , my lunch is only 45 min long so by the time I'm done I will only have about 25 min left. Can my boss do this? Or am I allowed to say no to this.
Generally, there are no laws that require employers to offer any certain length or amount of break time for employees. In your situation, if your employer offers scheduled break times, they may request that you pump during these break times. If this is not possible for you to do during your...View More
I was recently terminated from a job because of absences that exceeded their policy.

I can't find work because employers pull up the charge on a background check even though it was dismissed. Even with dismissal, the charge still looks ugly to potential employers and now I'm suffering financially.

However, if the case was dismissed you should consider an expungement. This will seal the case and...View More

An Indiana attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks. It sounds like your fall was in the course of employment. If that's the case, a workers' comp attorney could advise best. Some questions go unanswered on this forum, but you could try reposting and...View More
The doctor misdiagnosed my injury, delayed my treatment, and altered my restriction paperwork with my knowledge.

The doctor just needed the forms from the HR department of work but she had given me a note excusing me starting on June 29th 2021. Then today on June 30th 2021 I... View More
