You could try reposting your question under the Employment Law/Employment Discrimination (if you feel some sort of discrimination could be involved) since it remains open for three weeks. There's no guarantee that every post is answered, but in those categories, your question(s) would have...Read more »
Recently my husband was fired from his work place because he got into an accident on company time with a company vehicle. When he tried to file a claim for unjust termination, the work place told him he couldn't do it because he has no union behind him because he wasn't past the probation... Read more »
I would suggest contacting a law firm that handles union cases (labor law), such as McKanna Bishop Joffe, as they handle those types of cases. The probation period and rules associated with it should be in the collective bargaining agreement, which the union would have a copy of.
The science clearly shows many health concerns rebreathing expired air and I feel strongly about staying healthy. I've been employed for almost 9 years and love my job with New Seasons but this new policy crosses the line. How can we reach a compromise? Thank you.
Assuming this was Oregon, your final check was due the next business day. So, you send a written demand to them ASAP and see if they pay you. You may also want to contact an employment law attorney to see what else you can do.
I am an outside sales person and earn a base salary as well as commission if my sales total a certian amount (i.e. $3000=30% of sales, $4000=40%, etc.). After I sale an account, it is handed over to a franchisee and I no longer have anything to do with it. If the account cancels before 120 days has... Read more »
I am an outside salesperson. When I started, I was salary + commission. A couple years ago, my boss changed me to hourly, although my pay did not change. He merely did the math on what my salary would be if paid hourly, and basically clocked me in and out for 8 hours each day. In the 6 years I... Read more »
I am 1 of 2 who work in my office. We are on our 4th office manager since I started. At times I have been the only office person for weeks and done all office duties besides Payroll. My company uses a Payroll service, but can't always pay the taxes right away, so writes us checks with no... Read more »
HIPAA would not apply, as that applies to health records, but there are other privacy rules/laws that apply, so no, you should not be looking at other's records, but the violation is on the employer for not preventing you from doing so.
On a different topic, it sounds like your...Read more »
I am confused about how carrying over my accrued sick time is supposed to work. At the end of 2018 I had 23 hours of accrued sick time I did not use that then carried over to 2019. In 2019 I accrued an additional 45 hours- bringing my total accrued hours to 68. I used 40. Does the remaining 28 just... Read more »
The answer to this question will depend on a number of factors. I would begin by looking at the policies in your employee manual or employment contract (if you have one). Often accruals, and the amount that an employee is allowed to carry over from one year to the next, are bargained for. However,...Read more »
Sup said bc people were putting their feet up on the desk, he would take away all chairs so we would have to stand for 8-12 hrs at a time. We do not get any breaks, no meal time or anything. We eat as we are working if we have time and often going to the bathroom we get angry people wanting to... Read more »
There might be an OSHA regulation that requires chairs, so you might contact BOLI as they enforce OSHA. They also enforce the breaks and lunches, or lack thereof. If the employer also did not pay you for the lunch time, you may have a wage claim/overtime claim. As in, if your shift is 8 hours long,...Read more »
Employed 9/23/19-4/28/20 by a California school district. My position was hired as a non-union 'Classified Management' position with a salary of $4,700 per month. My supervisor was the district Superintendent. We only met twice during my tenure, and never once was my job performance,... Read more »
If you are this fellow's manager or the person who officially schedules his work hours, maybe there is some sort of potential liability. But if not, you just gave him your best knowledge. It did not come with a guarantee of accuracy and ultimately it was his responsibility to determine his...Read more »
I live in Oregon and I'm seventeen. I graduated early a few months ago, I have a full time job and my birthday is in September. This is my first time living in Oregon with this parent because I moved in after I graduated and I was a resident at Job corps for a year before that. It's just... Read more »
You are technically not able to commit to any legally binding agreements until you turn age 18 unless you get emancipated by a court proceeding. It probably isn't worth the time and money to file for an emancipation when you are only months away from turning 18. I suppose you could move out...Read more »
Since you were paid a week later in full, I don't see a violation of law here. I would consult with an employment law attorney in your state before signing a severance agreement with legal ramifications.
Hello, my father passed away last year in October and it is now February. I have called and called the agency (People Ready) my dad worked for (he worked as a carpenter through a temp agency) and I have left voicemails and even spoke to someone who said they would call me back, but no one has...

You might retain an attorney to contact them. A quick letter would likely not cost much, and the estate may be able to reimburse that cost. See ORS 652.190 for who is supposed to get the check to ensure you are the correct person before demanding the check.
