Do I need to file a charge with the EEOC?

You have 6 months from the date of the incident to file with the EEOC or PHRC. You must do this in order to preserve your right to sue.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. It appears you asked for reasonable accommodations for your disability. The employer had an obligation to engage in a good faith interactive process to determine if you could complete your job with or without accommodations. If you want to take action,... Read more »
I have an employee that i want to hire as a 1099 independant contractor. Outside of me putting them into my payroll as a 1099 contractor, what else do i need to make sure they are classified the correct way?
answered on Dec 21, 2022
You should contact a Pennsylvania employment lawyer directly to discuss your situation, as whether a worker can be properly classified as an independent contractor depends on a variety of different factors and will be highly dependent on the specific facts of their situation. Labels alone (such as... Read more »
My employer is telling me that I do not get holiday pay as a 36 hour full time employee, but 40 hour employees do. They said the reason I don't is because I work four days and it's a benefit to have a day off during the week. I think this is very unfair and I want to know if there are any... Read more »

There are no laws that require employers to offer paid time off, so unfortunately, if your employer does offer this benefit, they can offer it on their own terms (in this situation, to some employees but not others).

You would have to see a lawyer to determine whether you can sue the other party for lost wages. Employment laws vary from state to state. I think you'd have a tough time proving that you lost income as an independent contractor. W2 employee income is known and predictable, but yours isn't... Read more »

If you can do you job but just need an accommodation, then I would recommend talking to an employment lawyer in your area. If you think you... Read more »
My I-94 class of admission is DT, I came across the border. Am I eligible to file Form I-765 Application for Employment Authorization? What is my Eligibility category? Should I seek employment authorization under category (c)(11)? How soon can I file Form I-765 since I crossed the border?
answered on Nov 16, 2022
Generally, someone who is admitted as DT can file a form I-765 under (c)(11) as soon as they are admitted. However, if it is granted, it will only be valid for as long as the status is valid.

Sadly, workers' compensation does not provide you with any guarantee that you will be returned to the same shift or even the same job title as before your injury. However, if you fail to report to an offered position within your work restrictions it may result in a reduction or even... Read more »

Union vote for a segment of employees was counted 4/8. Since then a 4% raise was approved for everyone but the segment of employees who took part in the union vote and a 2.5% bonus was announced today again for everyone but those who will have union representation. Is this legal?
answered on May 5, 2022
I'd like to hear more about this, but based on your representation, it appears to be unlawful discrimination under the National Labor Relations Act. For example, Section 8(a)(3) of the Act makes it an unfair labor practice for an
employer to discriminate against employees “in regard... Read more »

On January 18th we were notified that we were being let go from our position that day with no notice at all. Our Temp Agency was not aware of this till the day they ended our contract. Was that legal? If not how do we set up a class action against them?
answered on Jan 25, 2022
I'd like to know more information because the answer likely depends on whether you had a contractual relationship with CVS or just the temp agency. The at-will doctrine applies in Pennsylvania and essentially allows an employer to terminate an employee for any reason or no reason. There are... Read more »

If it's the employer's computer they have a right of access. If you use it for personal things that is your risk. They can take the computer tomorrow, it's theirs. They can access the information any way they wish. It's theirs.

They can be as sloppy as they can, but there is no illegality. Unless you have a written contract of employment, you serve at will. You have no property right nor contract right in your job.

You are leaving out important facts. What was the legal bar to your employment all that time? You could have picked up a SS number on line if you needed one. What opportunities did you miss? Were you a government employee?
