Hi, more information is needed here but, yes, that appears to be under the federally required minimum wage. If that is the case, it is not okay, and would be a violation of law. I would recommend reaching out to an employment law attorney for a consultation.
I applied at a competing catering company. I called consistantly, got an answer and was just unlucky because the hiring manager wasn't in that day, or so I thought. I ended up finally reaching them just one day before my application expired, and the manager told me that "they were... Read more »

You should return the shirt and key card immediately. You should then contact an employment attorney to discuss the details of your employment situation and the circumstances under which your employment ended. More information about your situation is needed, but you may have a claim for gender...Read more »
I am hourly indiana. Would usually clock out at 11 because I don't need a lunch at 11 but they are forcing me to stay until 1130 even though I do not get paid for lunch because they don't want to have to manually change times.
Your employer can mandate that employees take an unpaid lunch break, even on days that you do not work a full shift. However, if you are continuing to perform work during the 11-11:30 time frame, you are entitled to be compensated for this time.

I would reach out to an employment law attorney in your state for a consultation. There isn't enough information here for a full analysis. Depending on your job duties and pay structure, you may be entitled to overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act.
if you were trying to handle this on your own, you are in trouble. these two, entirely separate and distinct actions: 1.) you have a Worker's Compensation which is a Board member of the Indiana Workers' Compensation Board; and 2.) you have a traditional lawsuit in the Circuit Court for...Read more »
Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, any employee may be paid on an hourly basis, but NOT every employee may be paid on a salary basis. It is possible that your employer misclassified you as a salary exempt employee when you began your employment and has since realized its mistake, but this will...Read more »
I work for the county. A coworker is doing what she can to alienate me from others in the office by verbally attacking me. She gossips about me to coworkers, and to my supervisor. She tells every one any mistake I make, but most of what she says is false. The first time I brought it up to my... Read more »
You are in a tough situation. Generally speaking, your complaint about your co-worker is not protected, which means you won't have any legal recourse if you are terminated. To be protected, the harassment needed to have been about your race, religion, gender, a disability, etc. That does not...Read more »
I submitted a dispute but it has not been forwarded to the Corporate office to this date. I also requested a copy of my file and was informed that a subpoena would have to be submitted to obtain the requested information. What course of action do I need to do at this point?

If you feel you are being harassed because of your disability or your membership in another protected class (e.g., due to your gender, race, color, national origin, religion, or age (40+)), you should report the harassment in accordance with your employer's policies. If the harassment...Read more »
If you have a signed a written employment contract with your employer look closely for any terms that would allow you to break the contract or broken promises made by the employer; but before you do anything you should run this stuff by an Indiana lawyer experienced in employment law.

More than likely the only way to recover documents in this circumstance is to file a lawsuit and request the documents and videos through issuing Request for Production of Documents to the Defendant (company).
What's the question? Report him to the police, freeze your credit if you are afraid that a loan has been taken out in your name or other accounts established and look into filing a claim against him for any damages you have incurred.
Several people said he’s passing it around. He’s also used my position against me when I refused to see him again! How do I get justice? Can we ask for medical records and file suite against him and employer?
There is no stock answer as to how much a non-compete is worth to your current employer. It is entirely dependent on the role and responsibilities you held at the business and how much of an impact on the business you could have if you decided to compete with them after you are terminated.
I have a girl who was previously employed with us. Resigned. Got a different position at a competitor and signed one there too. She then decided to quit that position and come back to us. Will that 2nd non compete be enforceable? Since our noncompete was in place when she started that job?
If both contracts are valid and signed then she is bound by the terms of both of them, therefore she could be violating at least one of them right now. However, without seeing the contracts there is no definitive answer available here. You need to sit down with an attorney have and them review both...Read more »
My boss (a service manager) and office manager came to my office and my boss told me this is where we part ways and I asked why and he said he doesn’t have to tell me why. This is in a dealership with over 100 employees.
Yes, you can be fired without reason in Indiana. The only exceptions are if you are a part of a collective bargaining agreement (union) or your termination was on the basis of a legally protected status (age, race, national origin, etc.).
