There are very specific privacy laws surrounding this. Talk with an employment attorney. Also, background checks are not free, so it is a good sign that they are requesting it, but I have only heard of background checks requested after a conditional offer is made and accepted. Talk to an employment...Read more »
This was before America had any knowledge of the virus. I came down with all of the symptoms and a horrible full body rash. The hospital also had no idea what was going on. Amazon let me go because I couldn’t work due to me being extremely sick. Can I sue for wrongful termination?
My employer texted me telling me that I need to keep my “damn” mouth shut about my pay (he has an open pay policy everyone knows about).

In a word, no. Ohio employment at will law says that, absent an agreement otherwise, an employer has no obligation to pay an employee after terminating the employment other than paying the employee for work done up to that point.
However, loss of work due to a coronavirus shutdown ordered...Read more »
Generally, your employer can reduce your wages. Since you have placed this in employment discrimination though, it could be worth it to talk to an employment law attorney in more detail. Some will offer free initial consultations.
Technically an employer can extend your start data unless there is a contract (not just an offer) regarding a start date. An employer can also rescind an offer. On the other hand, you do not have to put up with extensions and are free to continue your job search. If you find a new job, take it!
I was fired from my job because I pointed out due to a FMLA mixup that matrix tried to correct and whirlpool denied. They also refused to pay me my earned PTO time that I have left upon being fired because they said I did not request that I have it paid out. However, I was never told I had to... Read more »
Yes, you can record the conversation. You should also talk to an employment law attorney as soon as possible. It looks like you should file a charge with the Ohio Civil Rights Commission or EEOC, but helping an attorney help you file either of them is a generally good idea. Some attorneys will...Read more »
I believe I was. Along with a list of other people who were terminated before and after me, that told me the same person fired them. And it was all African Americans. He had a snobby attitude toward employees, and never had a concern. We have meetings every morning, I had a suggestion, which I... Read more »

An employer has the ability to transfer its employee. Absent an employment contract, it does not violate the law for them to assign you to a different city. If you are at will, you are free to quit if you do not wish to travel to the new city.

Sure, you can sue. Is there anyone available to pay damages? One of the problems with fly by night companies is they tend to up and vanish. A court order for you to be paid is far from you actually getting paid.
I have had issues for a couple of years with my co-worker and we have new people in and she has personally attacked me and my character and I took it to my supervisor saying I’ve had enough and want to be moved, but I also told her that I really don’t want to leave. I have 29 years in and can... Read more »
That depends on whether you have an employment contract and whether that employment contract gives them the ability to search your car if it's on their property. It seems unlikely, however. You should call an employment attorney.
