Hello, more information is needed here. Is the Fire Chief paid hourly? Does the Fire Chief work more than 40 hours per week? Employees need to be paid at least the minimum wage for all hours worked and at a rate of one and one half times their regular hourly rate for all hours worked above 40. I...Read more »
Missouri has a wonderful unpaid commission statute. I like those cases because, assuming commission remains due, it continues to accrue until the case is concluded. Many Missouri attorneys who handle commssion cases do so on a contingency basis.
I simply cannot afford to continue working for 9 hours a week. Its 90 miles round trip 3 hours every other day. I am spending more money than im making. I have been submitting applications elsewhere for a couple weeks, with no luck. Do i have any option with unemployment until i can get a job with... Read more »
You may be able to apply for partial unemployment. If you were hired on full time but your hours have since been drastically reduced, some states offer partial unemployment payments to assist with making up the difference in the hours you've lost.
However the old date was never changed in the system. The management is refusing to change the date stating the reason as the company’s policy. Is this right even though all my separation documents reflects the new day and also signed by the manager
Unfortunately, your post is hard to follow without seeing the documents and better understanding the facts and what law applies. For example, Missouri is an employment-at-will state, so absent a contract with terms to the contrary you can quit or be fired at an time.
The letter says that if I sign the document that "you will no longer be entitled to any further compensation, monies or other benefits from Arrow, including coverage under any benefits or programs sponsored" by the said company-so what does that mean? Does that include unemployment?
Absent a contract that provides otherwise, indeed you may be terminated because Missouri is an employment-at-will state. If the law were otherwise, an employee who was about to get fired could always give three-weeks notice and force the employment to extend.
I was told I used 9 of my eto days when I in fact only used 7 days. Then my condition got worse and I wasn't able to contact anyone about not being able to work and eventually received an email stating I had been terminated for absence.
More information is needed to analyze your situation. If these events occurred prior to December 31, 2020, your employer may have violated the Families First Coronavirus Response Act by failing to provide you with 2 weeks of paid sick leave and by retaliating against you for exercising your right...Read more »

I don’t understand why your boss would fire you for trying to get your stolen cat returned but, even if that were true, there is nothing improper, in an employment-at-will situation, for an employer to fire an employee on account for a cat situation.
I was asked to resign on the basis that I just wasn’t ready for all of the duties my job entails specifically after trying to communicate (to people who I do support under special circumstances but are not my direct supervisor) that the additional work I was being asked to do for them would cause...

I suggest you schedule a consultation with a local attorney. If you simply quit and would otherwise be entitled to unemployment benefits you might doom your eligibility. In addition, I don't know if you'd have any leverage in seeking a small severence payment.
After my test results came back negative he said I still had to wait the remainder of the 2 weeks then today he fired me stating that it caused his numbers to bottom out. I was supposed to return in 2 days. I work and live in Missouri. Is this legal?
Your employer may have violation the Family First Coronavirus Response Act. You should contact an employment attorney in your area to determine whether your employer was subject to the Act and to disucss your options.
The business I use to work for only had 5-6 employees and i can't seem to find anything that says he has to let me off work because he doesn't have to grant FMLA, even though I had a doctor's note, he told me that I was not allowed to take time off work. It got brought up later on,... Read more »
More information is needed to analyze your situation. As you mentioned, the Family Medical Leave Act - which provides job protection for medical leaves in some circumstances - does not apply to your employer because the business only employs 5-6 employees. Your cancer diagnosis would render you...Read more »

I was told to quarantine in march after traveling, but no federal, state or local government issued a mandatory quarantine after travel. So my work decided to tell me to quarantine for a week, which normally is 2 weeks so that doesn't make sense already. And they forced me to use 1 week of the... Read more »
Hi, if your employer has fewer than 500 employees, they are likely covered by the FFCRA. The FFCRA requires employers to pay employees for up to two weeks (80 hours) at the employee's regular rate of pay if the individual is unable to work because the employee is quarantined (pursuant to...Read more »
