I submitted a doctor's note for my facemask exemption, but my employer wouldn't accept it and put me on forced sick leave. Is this legal? In the governor's/health department's mask order, there are exemptions in there. What can I do besides sue them, which I don't really want to do? Thank you.

Unless 1) you have a contract guaranteeing you a certain pay, or 2) your employer is reducing your pay for an unlawful reason (e.g. unlawful discrimination or retaliation), you do not have any legal recourse if your pay is cut.
It sounds like you would have a medical condition that qualifies you for protection under the Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA"). Under the ADA, an employer does not necessarily have to provide you with the first accommodation you propose, but they are required to engage in an...Read more »

I informed payroll, HR, and management the day I got paid That my check was short. I call everyday to ask for updates everday they tell me they are working on it and have to wait for the owner's approval to give me a check. They owe me 1300$ that supposed to be on my regular paycheck.
Hi. I would wait to hear what payroll, HR, and management say. Does missing that portion of your pay put you below the minimum wage? Is the check for any overtime you worked during the pay period? If so, you may have a claim. But I would try to resolve this internally since you are still working...Read more »
