So I got sick from covid for about 3-4 weeks I contacted my boss and told them I didn't feel well. And when tried to come back to work after 3 weeks of being off when i finally got a negative test result nobody would give me an answer as to if I was employed anymore. It's now been close to 3 months and still no answer about my employment status. Plus I should ad that right as I got sick I had discovered that for the last 4-5 checks bi weekly they had been paying me a dollar less then I was hired at. What should I do are they aloud to fire me because I got covid are they aloud to just pay me less anytime they feel like it without telling me?

Best thing you can do in these situations is gather information via letters or email and lawyer up. Many lawyers will take on your case for free and take a percentage of the decision.

Don't tell them a damn thing. Contact the state and have them deal with it.

Tell them you're getting in touch with the State for treating a covid case with prejudice! (Hope they all get it)

If all you state is accurate. The company is liable the federal government put laws in place that prevent employees from being terminated while suffering from Covid. Make sure you submitted documentation from a accredited physician. They also are looking at violations for a drop in pay without changing your position, or prior notification. You should contact the labor board, or your sate official, Senator, Governor's office and they can point you in the right direction. I hope this was helpful. Good luck!

Find your offer letter that you signed when you took the job or any documentation you have that proves what you signed on for and collect all your pay stubs that reflect the discrepancies, submit a complaint with the labor board letting them know that you were sick with COVID and when you were finally cleared and let the know that you were able to return to work but the job did not put you back on the schedule. Provide any contacts that you may have had with the scheduling manager and have them investigated. If you haven't spoken with HR do so immediately and ask for their Covid policy in writing to see if you followed it as required by the company. Talk to a lawyer if you can for advice.

Gather your information that you’re being told and see if you can get unemployment to make up the difference. Watch how quickly you be back working.
