I have never received a copy of my employee agreement, they are saying that I cannot write a review based on the severance agreement having a "nondispargement" clause. The review is anonymous and is NOT defamtation.
Disparagement and defamation are not the same thing. You could post something anonymously, without defaming the company, but your comment could still be disparaging. If you signed a severance agreement containing a non-disparagement clause, then wrote an online disparaging review, the company...Read more »

Yes, the employee has a claim against his boss, assuming his boss is not a subscriber to worker’s compensation insurance. The person should contact a Board Certified Personal Injury Attorney as soon as possible for a free consultation.
Hello, I am not sure what your question is. If you are wondering who to have look over your non-compete, I would reach out to an employment law attorney in Wisconsin because that is the the state which governs the agreement.
The same person who has repeatedly harassed me does the same to other employees. Some of the employees have left the company and others are still employed there. HR and Management are aware of this Persons bad behavior and does nothing to stop it.
Unless the harassment is based on your status in a protected class (i.e., gender, race, ethnicity, disability, etc.), there is no legal recourse for your termination. If you were subjected to harassment based on your status in a protected class, and you were terminated after complaining to HR...Read more »
They have a dress code I have a key but I have a set schedule that is when they are there and when a receptionist is there. I am also paid commission. I am afraid being LLC would hurt me tax wise vs just staying how I am because my write off have gone down since starting with them as I don’t have... Read more »
No, they can't make you have an LLC. However, having one set up properly shouldn't change your tax situation, other than the fact that you'll need to start paying yourself by payroll, with withholding, and keep your business income and expenses separate from your personal income and expenses.

The federal regulations that you can find at 20 C.F.R. § 656.12 specifically indicate that the employer MUST pay ALL of the costs associated with the PERM process. These costs that must be paid by the employer include the attorney’s fees and costs of advertising for the position. Hence you can...Read more »
Your employer is not required to allow or offer break time, so having to work through lunch is not, in and of itself, unlawful. However, since you are paid hourly, you must be paid overtime at a rate of one-and-one-half times your regular rate of pay for all hours worked over 40 in a workweek. If...Read more »
On the back it says it is a violation of federal law to use this product in a manner inconsistent with its labeling. The product does nothing related for COVID-19. What it kills is Herpes simplex Type 2, Influenza A2/Japan, HBV, and HIV-1. Yet we use it in order to provide "safety" to the... Read more »

Your employer would be permitted to reduce your wages in this situation, but it cannot reduce your pay so much that your equivalent hourly rate falls below minimum wage.

Can I file a lawsuit to have a fraudulent w-2 revoked?
I am an independent contractor.My life line during the pandemic depends on gig worker assistance. A company fraudulently re-characterized me as a w-2 employee after I terminated all business relationship with them due to consistent... Read more »
I don't know what claims you could make yourself, but you could report the situation to the IRS. If they claim you were a W-2 employee, they should have been paying payroll withholding, and weren't. That can result in a 100% penalty against the company, and against anyone who had...Read more »
My work has recently made a policy that makes us drive up to work, clock in then either leave until clockout or sit at work, unpaid. We only get paid when we have services. We waste gas and time when we are forced to go to work twice daily without pay. Is this legal?
Hi, more information is needed here. If you are in an outside sales role, the company is not required to comply with federal law for minimum wage/overtime. It doesn't sound like you are though because you are going to the office every day. More information is needed about what you are actually...Read more »
