At my job, FOH employees are paid tipped minimum wage- $9.30. FOH employees receive tips, which are pooled and also shared with management and BOH employees, of which both groups receive at least minimum wage or higher. I read a passage on the Colorado department of labor website stating that... Read more »
Tip credit and tip pooling are two different things. A tip credit is when an employer pays you less than the minimum wage ($4.25 per hour for instance) and gets a credit from the tips you receive to count toward its obligation to pay minimum wage ($9.00 per hour for example).

Whether you are entitled to overtime pay for your hours worked over 40 per workweek depends on the types of duties you perform.

A child I interacted with and that was sick at our facility (vomiting is documented) tested positive for Covid. As did a staff member. I was not informed of this and went to work for 2 days before getting symptoms and testing positive. The building has never been cleaned or aired out and they... Read more »
What you described here sounds like negligence and an intentional tort if the facility was aware of the positive cases but nevertheless actively campaigned to avoid notifying its employees and the public about the risk of exposure. You will need to consult with a civil litigation attorney to...Read more »
Unfortunately, you would not have standing to sue her employer because they do not owe a duty to you. Your wife could potentially bring a claim but an employment lawyer would need to know more of the facts.
While this situation seems unfair, employees in at-will employment states can be fired for any reason or no reason at all, as long as they are not fired for a discriminatory reason (i.e. based on their sex, race, religion, age, or disability).
A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks. In terms of the personal injury aspects of the matter, it does not appear to be something that would form the basis for a personal injury claim. Such a claim would require the element of damages. And if participants...Read more »

And this could be serious, so you'll want to properly respond to avoid taking o liability. You should contact...Read more »
Offline having doctors send in documentation required by employer. I went through surgery on June 2nd got my voice back about a week later but days before I was sent a termination letter for attendance. Is it legal.
The answer to this question will depend on what your company's attendance policy is and what kind of documentation your doctors sent over. It will also depend on what your job duties were and for how long you needed to be out of work. You may potentially have a claim for disability...Read more »

If you want to get your money back, I recommend that you contact a local attorney to review your facts and damages. Then you can have a detailed discussion about your rights, remedies, risks, strengths and weaknesses of your case, the law, timeline, etc.
Your question does not provide enough detail to analyze whether this would violate the law. If you are an otherwise qualified individual who was not offered the position because of your disability, then you may have a claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act. However, you would not be...Read more »
