You said you received $11,000, as promised. Then you said you received another bonus--without telling us how much. Bottom line: If you received a second bonus you did not deserve (under your employment contract) then you must repay it.
As a general rule in Utah, if you have no contract or are an at-will employee, you may quit your job at any time, with or without notice, and your employer cannot charge you or withhold the pay you have earned. However, if you have a written employment agreement, you should consult with an...Read more »
The parent company of my employer (we are a subsidiary) notified us employees 3 days ago (the 4th) that April 1st a new company will take over the operations of my employer and we will all be let go. I'm a recruiter and have a base+quarterly commissions structure. I have people I hired and usually... Read more »
Are your new hires also being terminated? If not, and the hiring process is completed, then you have done everything you need to do to earn the commission. Depending on how the new operation is structured, you might have to collect your commission from your old employer, the new company, or the...Read more »
Well, if you owe them the money for the damage you caused, it seems that they simply applied "self-help," and got the money back from you quickly through your check. I don't know that there is any legal action you can bring to recover the money, unless you truly don't owe the money to them....Read more »
You can get sued if you are from a different country barring diplomatic immunity, but for the common traveler/tourist, yes you can be sued as long as you meet the minimum contacts in the states. The main question on this is Jurisdiction and service of process. An analysis would fill...Read more »
2/14/18 is when I signed to the pay increase of 12.48 per hour and sometime between 2/22-2/23 one of the other people on the document changed the pay increase to 12.21 per hour so I would be getting less money. They also did not inform me of this change nor did they ask me to sign a new form saying... Read more »
This is a good question, in addition to the issue of whether or not someone can enforce a contract that has been altered from the original provisions agreed to, there might be an issue of whether this was a contract at all.
In all contracts, there has to be "consideration" or something of...Read more »

My employer put out an employee contract for us to sign after I've been working for the company in a management position for months now. I didn't feel comfortable with signing it so I put it off for a few weeks. They kept bugging me over and over to sign it. I eventually said I'll get around to... Read more »
You are under no obligation to sign the contract. They could have fired you for not signing the contract, but that is/was their only recourse. What you offered was an illusory promise, " I will get around to signing it". In my opinion, they would spend a lot of money taking you to court in order...Read more »
Would put it on our personal insurance because he didn't have workman's comp for his employers. Very small company, we question if workman's comp is required. This was Friday 10/27/17, my husband was "let go" yesterday, 10/31/17!! Please help?
I'm not licensed in Nevada, and am not sure where this occurred, but in Utah the employer would have to have had workers compensation insurance (and I'm 99% certain that would be the case in Nevada -- I think it's the case in all states. Your husband should see a good personal injury attorney,...Read more »
I have been offered a flight/hotel by the prosecuting law firm for a deposition as requested by the defending law firm. (I'm participating in a delivery driver class action) Is this is standard practice? I'm weirded out a guy called and want to fly me out in a week.
An employer can require you to work as many hours as they wish, provided they compensate you in accordance with overtime laws. They cannot "force" you to do it, in that you can decline, and quit or get fired. If your employer is making you work more than you want, I'd suggest that you try to find a...Read more »
One of my drivers was assaulted by a customer on his delievery. The police told me that my company cannot press charges against the customer over the assualt against my employees. Is this true? I feel that the company can pursue legal action because they assaulted an asset of the company
I am probably the wrong person to answer this as I don't have much experience in employment law. Here is what I do know. Businesses are unable to discriminate on the basis of race, religion, age, and gender. If the only reason, your boss would fire you is because of your conversion to another...Read more »
I was fired from my job from what I was told was a reduction of force. The person who let me go asked me the same day if I would consider coming back at a later time or a different position, I told him yes.
A month ago I was asked to come in for an interview . It went well... Read more »
There is no law that requires an employer to rehire individuals who are terminated, regardless of the reason. Assuming you were not hired because of some type of discrimination, you may have a claim. But with the information provided, I see no claim.
I have been interviewing for a general manager position at a large retailer, the first interview was with "John" the regional manager, he was very very friendly, second interview was with a different women. I was on a common app called grindr where gay men meet each other. I was contacted by "John"... Read more »
You would most likely have a very difficult time getting anywhere with this case. To start, it appears you voluntarily went to see him after seeing him on Grinder and being invited to come get naked. It doesn't appear he made any promises if you visited him, and you'd presumably have a difficult...Read more »
