My past employer gave me a new phone every year and I signed a contract stating I would give it back each year. Every year that I have worked there they let us keep our devices after we got new ones. They let me keep my iPhone 13 and iPhone 12 in the past. I left the company 5 months ago and they... View More
You signed a contract stating you would give it back each year. It is perfectly legal for your past employer to request you give back your company phone even though they didn’t ask for it back in the past. They were being nice before because you were an employee, now you are not.
Employers often have rules regarding work that fall between legal, unfair and illegal. The kind of rule you are describing is one of those.

Difficult situation. Usually if you work even an hour a day, the employer cannot deduct, but many wage laws allow a deduction from a salaried worker's pay if they miss an entire day. It does not seem right if you are also working 40+ hours a week. That is full time. This case arises under...View More
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... View 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.
This is really more of an employment law question rather than a criminal law question. I’d suggest answering the question in that forum. But I don’t believe that there would be anything illegal about using your maiden name.

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.
