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.

I'm hoping someone can help me. I have been with the same company for 20 years. I was just on maternity leave with my 3rd child and I was paid my full salary the entire time. I came back for 3 weeks and was just let go. The reason was that my position was "absorbed". I do all the accounts payable for a large wholesaler and before me the position was held by 2 other people since 1969. So after 48 years it's not needed? The question is..is this legal?

Information that's allowed

So I was filling out an application online for a posted job and once I uploaded my resume and clicked submit another screen appeared asking for information such as Social Security number, Drivers License # and issue state, etc. I was apprehensive to enter this information and therefore the application was not completed. Is it legal to require this information during the application process?

start date?

I signed the job offer along with other new hire documents including a non compete agreement for a job that’s set to start mid March but I’ve been invited to an interview with a competitor that might involve a better job offer it all goes well. Does the non-compete agreement begin on the sign date or the start date?

Fired Improperly

I found a job to keep my mind off of things at home and to make a lil extra spending change at the local Family Dollar. I applied for management position as a lead Key holder and was hired. After getting the store organized and promoted a team working atmosphere, a general manager was finally hired on. So after only working there for 3 months..i get FIRED! I was told i was fired because i didn't do stocking at 70%. Keep in mind as a supervisor you must hold a key for returns..exchanges..etc. other things such as stocking came 2nd. So in my opinion myself or no one could give. 70%. I wasn't even given a write up or a promissory warning AT ALL! Just a lousy "Im letting you go"...should i take legal actions against my store district?

Fed up with idiots

I went on a job interview at a law firm. I was asked the following questions: (1) do you have children?; (2) are you married?; and (3) how old are you? Isn't this unlawful?

Breaks at work

Is it illegal for you boss to go without giving you a break? And how many hours do you have to work to deserve a break?

Harassment

Document everything and call the EEOC you are protected Title VII. I would not quit before going to them. It may take a little while to get in and then get a lawyer who will take your case contingent.

Lawsuit?

DMV made a mistake and got me fired from a driving / traveling job. Anyone know if there could be a lawsuit there?

My employer told me a ticket was making the company insurance drop me, so I accepted it as I did get a ticket, but later check my driving record to see it was suspended about 21 days later. Called DMV and they fixed it that day, also sent an e-mail to my previous employer letting them know the situation. Sadly the HR person will not talk to me at all, nor respond to my e-mails. SMH.

Legal or illegal?

I was at my job for about 2 months but in that short time I really impressed my Gm and during the holidays a lot of people did no call no shows and we're fired so my job was low on employees. My Gm asked if I would want to be a manager I said yes and he updated my restrictions in the system so that I had manager access for things such as the safe for shift changes and the cash drawer for shift changes or returns and things like that that only a manager could do and not a regular employee. I wasn't trained like most managers because of the short handed staff we had because of the holidays as I mentioned so I instantly had my own shift to run and had to learn as I went if I ran into something I couldn't do I had to call the help desk and try and figure it out with them. Anyway I learned quick and had no problems running my own shifts and got my gm out of a tuff spot and gave him time to hire new employees. But I was to keep my shifts and stay manager but hadn't received my raise. The minimum a manager makes was a dollar more then what I was making. My boss told me he had to get it approved threw corporate but that I would get my raise soon. Well I ran my own shifts as manager for 6 weeks before I told my boss what's going on with my raise. By then he had hired new employees and new managers and could get my shifts covered so he put me on a different shift where I was not the manager and told me it was just for a week or 2 till I get my raise and then I would get my own shifts again. He said he was doing it to be fair to me and so that I wouldn't have more responsibility on my shifts that I wasn't getting paid for and that once it got fixed I would even get back pay for the 6 weeks I worked as manager and didn't get paid as one. Well before I got my raise I was fired for calling and saying I was gonna be an hour late because my son was hurt at school during recess and had to pick him up. I just received my last check and it did not have my back pay for the 6 weeks I was a manager and did not get paid as one. Is that legal or is there something I can do about it?
