My contract states I will be provided a free health plan or stipend towards another plan. The newly formed company is not providing this and rates have gone up to over 2K a year. Does my new employer have to honor my contract if they are not firing me or providing a new contract for me to sign?... Read more »
Your post is not entirely clear about your relationship with this company, nor does the post have additional information needed to provide a clear, reliable answer.

I work in a warehouse on a military base. Our workforce was initially 7 people. Some quit, retired and was promoted. The work force is now down to 3.5 people. The employer has yet to hire anyone. The positions are funded, and there is no shortage of applicants. We are in a union. The work load has... Read more »
Generally, yes. The employer is not required to hire people unless there are union agreements or agreements with others that would require as much. There is nothing unlawful about an employer being enriched by working its employees to death. That is simply a fact of life in a capitalistic...Read more »

The primary employer can terminate you for doing so. The duty of loyalty would require that you present your present employer with those business opportunities while you remain employed with the employer.
You have not asked a question so I am not sure what you are looking to find out. No one is forced to resign unless there is a gun to their head. If you resigned because of some kind of threat from the employer, then more would need to be known about the threat.
I get paid the 1 and 16 of every month my pay periods are the 9th through the 23rd and the 24th through the 8th my last check I worked 92 .42 hrs and was paid all straight time no over time at all I thought anything over 80 hrs in a pay period is over time
I was recently terminated but my employer did not pay all monies owed and his way of firing me was blackmailing me by stating that if I didn't resign, he would follow a police report. I refused to quit and he still terminated me. My last direct deposit was short a few hours and I was never paid... Read more »
There is a lot in your post. The basic answer is yes, you have rights. You have rights to claim the money that should have been paid to you. If you can prove the employer willfully failed to pay all of your wages upon your termination you may also be entitled to Waiting Time Penalties equal to...Read more »
There is no law that says a former employer cannot call you after you have left the company. However, there is also no law that says you have to respond to them.

Far more would have to be learned about your situation to know if there is a violation of the law by this employer. There are conceivable circumstances that would make the employer's actions here lawful or unlawful. The nature of your illness, the timing and content of communications with the...Read more »
My company was transferred to a new owner through a receivership, I accrued 10 weeks over 7 years and am being told that I won't be paid out by the receivership since there's not enough money after they pay off all other debts. I can't find an up to date law or document supporting my argument that... Read more »
If your employer has changed due to a transfer, it is possible the new owner will have no obligation to pay out accrued vacation earned from the prior employer. It depends on many facts not known from your post. It would be wise for you to locate and consult with an experienced employment law...Read more »
I have an instant messaging system on my office computers. Some users are logging out. We can’t fire them, but how can I set consequences for logging out or ignoring messages? What can I do to make the software so users can’t disconnect? Program is Synology Chat. Server is Windows.
There is a middle ground between firing people and letting them sabotage your system. An attorney can provide rules and procedures that can be set up and provided to employees. Rules can be enforced without firing people.
Firing employees who perform their tasks, except for the ones they...Read more »
They stated, in an email, that I promised to sign when signing my original contract. My former employer writes, "In Section 6. "Termination Certification" of the employment agreement you signed, you explicitly agreed to sign it (the attached was part of that agreement) and to keep Delerrok advised... Read more »
You have no duty to do anything with regard to a former employer. Even if you promised to sign the document at termination, if you fail to sign, it is so remotely possible that the employer would bring some kind of legal action against you to sign such a document that there is little risk in...Read more »

I’m a 1-1 and am required to follow him everywhere throughout the day but he is increasingly defiant and making threats. I recently took several days off and often see a therapist for the issues I have with this kid. The school hasn’t given him repercussions and I don’t feel safe but can not... Read more »
My contract was terminated today by the company. I was hired an independent contractor, but they treated me as an employee. Regular reports were due, specific training on how they wanted things done, regular biweekly direct deposit, mandatory company meetings and even the exit paperwork they sent... Read more »
Maybe. On those facts you could be an employee or an independent contractor, but establishing that you were an employee doesn't by itself entitle you to unemployment. The nature of your termination is also relevant. If you were terminated for misconduct, for instance repeatedly coming to work...Read more »
