I was fired recently because I was told that I clocked out later than when I actually left. I work for a major Healthcare Company and I became ill for the first time ever with Flu A. My manager had contacted a week later & asked me if I had clocked out earlier, and I had told her that I did leave... Read more »
This depends on whether they joined the lawsuit prior to signing the waiver. If they received a check, it sounds like the class was certified prior to signing a class action waiver. So they can likely cash their check since they already joined the lawsuit prior to signing.
Greetings. If a person is connected to a governmental agency (for example, they have a pending unemployment application in front of an unemployment agency), they should be able to get all evidence submitted by any party just be asking. If a person is not connected to the agency (for example, an...Read more »
An employment lawyer would carefully review your employee handbook before advising you. This could be completed remotely.

This seems like standard procedure, but I was just curious. It was stated in the Grooming Policy they sent me. I haven’t started the job yet. I’m going to be in the ensemble of a musical on a cruise ship.
Wow. You need to watch this clip first. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0nCT8h8gO1g

It is unlawful for your employer to stop scheduling you for shifts in retaliation for making a protected complaint. Not every complaint about a manager is a "protected complaint."

You might try a law school clinic which allows law students to learn while helping clients who lack the legal skills necessary to uncover evidence which may have been misinterpreted or not addressed. Of course if the evidence was not introduced into the record that will be problematic.
A company has different departments. Some department has incentives and some department doesn't. The incentive basically works on how much time you save. So for example: You complete a 60 minute assignment in 30 minutes. So any time you save is added to your weekly check.
After telling supervisor about all the things other rep said, was still told to work with that person. The one who said it was mad that something was stated to the boss about said stuff. Had 3 days of that person saying sexual comments. Now hard to work with this person.

Yes, an employer can demote you as long as it wasn't based on your membership in a protected class (race, religion, etc.) or based on you engaging in a protected activity.

But that does not mean that an employer can not implement policies and procedures to follow which...Read more »
