I boarded dogs at a kennel. After 5 months of payments the owner offered me a part-time job. It progressed from a 3-4 hour morning/evening to 24 hours (10 hrs in the kennel & 14 hrs in their home taking care of their 8 pets) over 3, 5, 7, or 10 day periods. On lunch, I was required to answer phones... Read more »
No, because there is no law requiring any employer to "promote" part-time employees to full time jobs. FYI, Publix has always had a (unwritten?) policy of NOT giving its non-managerial employees "full time jobs." Why?

Due to an error of their paperwork I was over paid one paycheck. Even though, I followed the proper procedure for resigning. I’m being threaten of a lawsuit for an error that they made. What should I do? Please help.
It never ceases to amaze me how many educated people still think the old school-yard rule of "finders-keepers" is some sort of legal justification for keeping something valuable that does not belong to them. Unless you want your employment record sullied more than it is now, and unless you enjoy...Read more »
