A New Mexico attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. Your insurance company should defend you - it isn't clear why you're being charged. You could reach out to attorneys to try to arrange a free initial consult. If you have a copy of the police report,...View More

My 16 yoa son works for a large christian camp weedeating and mowing. His coworkers who are juveniles keep haraasing him, which he has advised his supervisor. One attacked him with a weedeater and they did not fire that juvenile. Are they not wrong for not firing or reprimanding him? My son has... View More
Sorry to hear your sun endured this treatment. Employees are usually limited to worker's compensation benefits from on the job injuries. One exception is for the intentional physical assault by a co-worker. Then general negligence law kicks in. The employer can become civilly liable for...View More
They repeat lies and omit facts that could easily cost the customer tens of thousands of dollars- I’m sure they have done so many times. Most of their clientele is lower to middle income which is concerning. I think I can pretty easily prove that they conditioned us to repeat these lies. (BTW,... View More

You should discuss this situation with an Arkansas employment attorney in more detail. In addition to the issues you've listed above, employers also need to account for shift differentials and non-discretionary bonus payments when calculating your overtime pay rate. If your overtime pay rate...View More

My boss came in today and said starting next week I will no longer receive my hourly pay of $12 hr for 34 hrs weekly. He says starting next week Noone gets hourly nomore and will be working making commission only. He said we will get paid $100 every deal we close. Problem with that is that... View More
Thanks and in Arkansas they can change to pay you commissions so long as you still make a minimum wage. If you work as an employee for a week and don't get paid anything, that is a minimum wage violation
Thanks and it depends on your position and their exact policy. If, for example, they don't have a cap on the amount of comp. time that you can accrue (add up), and you keep accruing unlimited hours, then you are owed the pay for the hours over the cap at time-and-a-half your regular rate of...View More
That is illegal under Arkansas law. Arkansas law requires comp. time be credited as 1.5. You should speak to an attorney about it. There are a few very technical exceptions to the law, but your situation doesn't seem to fall into those exceptions

I worked for a company, empire aes, doing fiber optics for a month. I received two weeks of pay. After that they stopped responding to my attempts to contact and have not compensated me for the additional two weeks. I submitted my work through their system as required but they won't even respond.
I am curious if there is any recourse for uprooting my life then being laid off due to restructuring. I was rushed to move and employed for a month before being laid off. I was offered two months severance and didn’t sign as it doesn’t cover my expenses or having to relocate again. Per... View More
You must be paid for all hours you worked, so you should bring this up to your employer and explain the discrepancy. Moving forward, you should independently track the hours you work so you have your own record of your start and end times.
Thanks and if an employer has a bona fide paid-leave plan in place (paid sick leave, short-term disability, etc.) and an employee is not yet eligible to participate in the plan or has exhausted his or her leave, a full-day deduction from pay is allowed.

Employees must be paid for their work, and your employer's system issues do not give them an excuse not to pay you while the system is fixed. If you are still performing work during this time, you should keep track of the hours you work and submit these for payment like you would using the...View More
In Arkansas generally, yes you can be made to work 7 days a week, as long as the employer pays lawful overtime for hours over 40 in that pay period. In Arkansas, there are no mandatory days off or even required meal/rest break periods. Also, there are exceptions to the overtime after 40 hours...View More
