The FB post was on my private personal account, it did not mention the business or anyone by name and my profile does not list where I work. I complained very angrily about her lack of enforcement on the mask mandates in the office and I did swear saying an A-hole customer was putting my health at... Read more »
Ohio is an at-will employment state, meaning you or your employer can terminate the employment relationship at any time and for any reason (as long as the reason isn’t discriminatory). It sounds like you have been fired here based on what happened. As for unemployment, your employer can challenge...Read more »
Yes, sadly, having an ongoing workers comp claim is no guarantee that you won't be laid off. That said, if the person with the open claim is the ONLY ONE laid off, that is likely a violation of Labor Code 132a. But you have to prove the true reason you were let go was the employer...Read more »
I requested a few days off for a minor surgery just over a month ago. It was denied because they say i have to be scheduled on the days I want off in order to get paid sick time. At the time I first requested the days the schedule wasn't made yet.
This is not a workers' compensation issue, it's related to your employment. You will need to find an attorney who accepts employment benefits cases and, in the meantime, you may want to ask your employer for a copy of any employee handbook or manual that has information about your leave...Read more »

If you mean you are receiving disability wages and receiving pay so being paid more than you are owed or would receive if working or just on disability then there would be an error on either the employer or Insurance company’s part.
It would be best for a workers' comp attorney to answer your question, but your post remains open for two weeks. The fact that they "accepted responsibility" sounds like it could mean they accepted coverage for a claim under a policy, as WC isn't generally based on...Read more »
March ‘18 my manager sexually harassed me. I didn’t report it until August ‘19 due to fear of retaliation and because I’m male and felt no one would listen. I reported it after speaking to a therapist about it. My employer investigated but closed the case without any findings and left it as... Read more »

I informed payroll, HR, and management the day I got paid That my check was short. I call everyday to ask for updates everday they tell me they are working on it and have to wait for the owner's approval to give me a check. They owe me 1300$ that supposed to be on my regular paycheck.
Hi. I would wait to hear what payroll, HR, and management say. Does missing that portion of your pay put you below the minimum wage? Is the check for any overtime you worked during the pay period? If so, you may have a claim. But I would try to resolve this internally since you are still working...Read more »
Your post seems to come from Florida, we have different laws in CA, but you are covered under the ADA, everywhere. It is very difficult to respond to your inquiry because you do not say whether you can perform all the essential functions of the job with or without a reasonable accommodation, and...Read more »
If your former employer is really considering filing for BK, the quicker you get the money in your bank, the better off you will be. Cannot evaluate the claim because you did not say how much you asked LC for. The LC claim could become just another claim in BK and you would get a fraction of its...Read more »
