I was helping a elderly couple who came to MN since 6/2022 from Laos do their first time State ID. It took me about half an hour to get it done. The next day I was called into the office by my manager to ask why I took half an hour to do a simple transaction that can take 15min. I explain to my... Read more »

This is not a criminal law issue. I'm not sure that suing your manager would be particularly beneficial unless your manager has deep pockets. I suggest that you report the manager to his higher ups and allow them to address the issue internally.
we have never signed a contract regarding pto nor has a published employee handbook stating pto guidelines been given to me. i am a salaried employee and my time off has never been an issue before as long as my hours are worked at some point or my work is up to date.

Yes. There are no laws that require employers to offer benefits such as PTO, so if your employer chooses to offer it, they can require you use it if you will miss work.
And they're trying to get me for theft I found the money fair and square they always say when work on the line if you find something you want to keep it the 1600 was in the envelope on a piece of paper clip to the money in an envelope that 1,600 the date was 2019 and the bank was Eagle...

Minnesota is an at-will employment state, meaning you or your employer can terminate the relationship at any time and for any reason. Thus, even if nothing was improper about how you found the money, your employer can still choose to terminate you for this reason (or no reason) at any time.

The charge of selling alcohol to an underage customer is a gross misdemeanor. Law enforcement performs these types of sting operations all the time. You are presumed innocent and cannot be found guilty unless you are proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. You are entitled to an attorney and... Read more »

More information is needed to answer your question. In some cases, the Family Medical Leave Act and/or the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as state laws, can provide you with job protection for missing work due to a serious medical issue. You should contact an employment law attorney in... Read more »
Just a reminder that the wearing of masks or face shields while in the customer home is not optional, and there is a zero tolerance policy if you do not wear them.
The only time it is optional is when you are outside of the home and separated by at least 6 feet.... Read more »

Unless you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask or face shield, you can be required to wear one while performing your work. If you do have a medical condition, you should work with your doctor to request an accommodation under the Americans with Disabilities Act from your... Read more »
I I was fired for refusing a piss test. That I never refused the company I work for broke federal law when giving me the piss test
answered on Feb 19, 2020
Unfortunately, there is very little protection for individuals when it comes to refusal of a drug test. Because you are an at-will employee, an employer may terminate you for any reason, or no reason at all, unless it is an unlawful reason. If you feel as though you were singled out based on your...

My entire team works from home on Fridays and I was told I would be expected to be in the office if I have too many unplanned FMLA days.
I am on intermittent FMLA for my own serious health condition.
I feel I am being punished for having FMLA
answered on Feb 12, 2020
In general, an employer cannot use your need to take intermittent FMLA as a negative factor in making an employment decision. More details are needed to determine whether an FMLA violation has occurred. You should consult with an employment attorney as soon as possible to determine the best... Read more »

Missing from your question is *why* you think you were treated differently. If you were not considered for the position because of race, gender, age, disability, or some other protected class or protected conduct, then you may have a claim worth pursuing.

Minnesota is an at-will employment state. From the facts presented, it does not appear to be an illegal termination, but you may want to discuss this further with an employment attorney. A more interesting question relates to the apparently *not* anonymous survey.

You may have a defamation claim depending on what was said.

Generally not. A permissible question is whether you are authorized to work in the United States. Citizenship is rarely a bona fide requirement of a job.
