Illegal to fire me or cut my hours because Im too slow?

I work for a inventory company and they have briefings before every shift. They have been threatening us that if we don't work fast enough we will be sent home. We are expected to maintain a cph (count per hour) and it is unreasonably high. There is no way most of us can do that without guessing which would result in a inaccurate count which the whole point of our job is to provide a accurate inventory, and there are recounts done by the retail managers at the locations that we work. They stated last shift I worked that they are going to make a dedicated crew of the fastest people between two offices to give the majority of the hours to and also said some of us will be fired. Is this legal? It sounds like discrimination to me. I work hard and so do others we do our best at our job, we don't slack off, engage in unnecessary conversations with coworkers, or anything else that would affect our performance. Also we used to get a "3 minute break" once per shift but now told no breaks whatsoever, don't ask. Our shifts usually are about 6 hours. I thought you were entitled to a 15 minute break after 4 hours but im not sure. This job is in Florida. I really want to ask management about all this but afraid I will be fired or my hours cut even more. What should I do I'm already not getting enough hours to survive but a job is better than no job.

Hi @Toni Smith , welcome to jobcase! Ready for some good news! There are a lot of legitimate employers hiring remote workers right now. The key issue for job seekers is identifying which jobs are legit and which are scams. If you're serious about searching and landing remote job opportunities, take a look and/or bookmark the Avoid Job Scams Resource Center. The job search suggestions and strategies are designed to help you identify, avoid, and report inappropriate job offers.

Your previous work experience in the hospitality and healthcare industry is good but I noticed you don't have any related remote work experience listed on your profile. This might present challenges for you during the online job search application process.

For better success, take a look at the related remote job search and employment information on the Work From Home Resource Center. There you will find helpful information like Is a work from home role right for you? designed to help you make better job application choices.

Also, make sure you use an optimized resume with your online applications. Upload your resume onto the Jobcase Profile or use the resume builder option to create your new optimized resume. Doing this will make your online application submissions easier.

For new remote jobs take a look at the Sykes - Work From Home Job Opportunities. We also keep an updated list of new job leads and hiring announcements on the #workfromhome topic page.

Start here and connect right back with us if you have any questions.

Thanks & Good Luck!

Will I get a job consistent with my education and experience?

I just move to South Florida with my long time girlfriend who has a home near Ft. Lauderdale. I just put my resume online and have Ben applying for the areas that I have education and experience in. I work 23 years in law enforcement and retired as a lieutenant. I then ran and operated my own small business while I attended college full-time for six years earning two bachelor degrees and a Associate’s degree. My administration experience, public administration, political science BA’s along with my paralegal and law enforcement associates degrees are not getting me any interviews; only scammed. I’m getting close to interview for human resource positions and it turns out it’s a scam or American Income Life or AFLAC. Horrible how recruiters online do this by promising you an entirely different position in management. It’s awful. Any advice? I have a solid resume that covers the wide variety of tasks that I performed as an administrator/lieutenant and working with human resources/ training and recruitment. Any advice from a recruiter or some other professional 48 years old who is trying to reestablish a second career would be appreciated.

Job

I would love to find a job, from home, make my own hours. I have Multiple Sclerosis and need something that I can set my own hours due to sickness at times. I worked all my life. I worked for the State of California and did medical billing, working as a legal typist and worked as a book keeper for realty offices. All I can find is stuff like surveys (which pay next to nothing) or play games. Too old for games and the surveys take forever for .50. I am so tired of not being able to find something to help me. #advice #healthcare #disabled #careeradvice #legal #help

Illegal or not???

I have heard over and over again that it is illegal to demand that a person give their age when applying for a position, and I would like to know once and for all what the truth is on that subject. If it is illegal to ask someone how old they are (birth date, etc.) then why is it a part of every application and hiring process??? I am 39 years old and have already started experiencing what I believe to be discrimination based on age. Please does anyone know the facts on this subject? Searching online did not give me the answers I needed, but I am sure someone here could help. Please and thank you!!!

BEWARE of AAA Quality Home Repairs - I was hired January 9th. He had already hired others that did not work out for his home based office. His ad said 20+ per hour but the first day he told me $18 until the 90 day probationary period was over. Well, I was completely alone in the office, he was so "busy" that He wouldn't let me ask him any questions (not even on the phone) I tried to reconcile his Quickbooks balance with his bank balance but I had no log-ons, no paperwork such as bills, etc. (he would deposit checks via Iphone and I had to scan his email to see if there were any, didn't know who from or what for - long story short he let me go after 8 days - still hasn't paid me - all of our agreements were verbal. Initially he said that I "misrepresented" myself, sure, with 20+ years of experience, then he said he didn't have the money. I have filed an L&I claim against him to get my money. LESSON LEARNED - try to have a written, signed contract before you start working! Susan

IRS

I do not have phone service. The IRS just took the carpet tax refund I was planning to stand on from under me. I am hoping to see half.
