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.).
Contact a member of the Indiana Assn for Justice that handles comp claims--they give free consults. As to the air bags, depending on how the crash happened the air bags would not have gone off as they only go in certain circumstances.
If the wreck was someone elses fault you have a claim...Read more »
I was Activities Director at an assisted living facility. I was terminated last year for a reason that was never explained to me. I just received a certified letter from my former manager entitled: "NOTICE: CEASE AND DESIST PERSONAL CONTACT RESIDENTS". It says I'm to have no... Read more »
This isn't legally binding. This is a notice that if you continue to see the residents at the property they may bring legal action against you. If they are serious about this it is likely that there is a clause in your contract that bars you from continuing contact with the families or...Read more »
Worker's comp usually takes care of such things. I've never heard of an employer demanding you pay your work comp insurance while you're off work for a work related injury. Google worker's compensation attorneys in Indiana and give one a call. They'll know better than I do.
I am applying for my teacher's license in the state of Indiana. About a year ago, I committed a misdemeanor for minor theft.

If the case is truly expunged and no just dismissed then you do not need to tell anyone about your case with limited exceptions. You may want to check mycase.in.gov to confirm your case has truly been expunged.

Employer sends the employee to the primary care and gets diagnosed with left shoulder region strain, left pectoralis muscle strain, and parathesia. Employee returns to work... Read more »
In this case the employee would likely receive something from the doctor, assuming this is a work comp doctor, saying that he/she will need to be off work for a certain amount of time if the pain is too much. My recommendation in this situation would be to have the employee go back to the doctor to...Read more »

Unfortunately, you are most likely an at-will employee. You can be fired at anytime for almost any reason. Your employer could fire you for not liking the way you dress or for not meshing well with the other employees on a personal level. In this case, being 45 minutes late is a perfectly valid...Read more »
In Indiana, limiting covenants like this are generally frowned upon but may still be upheld by the courts if limited in scope (like in geographical proximity) and the limitation is related to your employment (like working for another company in your area of work).
I recently applied and interviewed for a job. I was told by the manager in a follow-up phone call that I was not hired because I was socially awkward. I asked the company's HR department if that was a legimitate reason not to hire some one. They told me that they would investigate, and later... Read more »

My employer has stopped giving me my car count bonus because of me missing work due to migraines. They knew before I was hired I suffer from them. There are letters from 2 different doctors including my neurologist stating I'm on prescription medication for them. Is this legal?
I already answered you question in a different form: "A: Everything depends on your employment contract. If the amount is relatively small, file a small claims action and let a judge decide whether and how much you are owed."
I work at an oil change facility. One of the hiring benefits was a "car count" bonus. For each car we service, employees get a dollar amount. Because I miss work due to migraines they took mine away. They knew about headaches before hiring. They have 2 letters in my file from doctors... Read more »
Indiana is an employment at will state. Unless your employer discriminates against you on the basis of some suspect classification, or you are protected by an employment contract, you are probably out of luck.
