So I got injured on April 4,2022 from a slip and fall accident at my previous seasonal job. Now it took the company 2 weeks to file for workers compensation then seveal weeks later to have exams done and see orthopedics. One orthopedic told me that my left shoulder is a frozen shoulder (mind you he never looked at my images from my mri nor the results as there was and still are several issues and fractures and what not going on.) this orthopedic doctor tells me to exercise my shoulder and keep moving it and everytime I do the pain gets worse. As for my back it’s pulled muscle and my right wrist has a torn tendon. So due to the severity of my injuries I was only paid for 2weeks (as they stated was because it was a seasonal job at the mall.) now it’s almos July and I’m still in pain and seen a physical therapist and all but what’s important is that I have missed my actual job for almost over a month that I just started few days after. It’s complicated and probably confusing at this point. But my point is was that I was told by the orthopedic that I can not use my left arm (in a sling) one moment and the next to move it and to move my right wrist (in a brace), which is kinda impossible when your a cashier and can barely hold a pencil or lift up my own child not to mention I have my back a brace on as well which makes me completely not useful to my company. Now, I havent gotten paid For the times I missed work and went to my therapies and doctor appointments even have a letter stating I’m not allowed to return to work till I’m cleared by my orthopedic (till today I’m still not cleared.)

What can I do in this case as it’s kind of hard as I’m a single mom who needs to provide for my 2year old and pay bills.

I'm so sorry to hear you got injured at work! Its hard to tell what to do next exactly, but can I ask if you have all the documentation related to your injury and aftercare sorted out and organized in case you need to take legal or official action? You may need to also find a way to contact someone in the companies HR department or payroll to sort out which days you should be paid for and any reimbursements. Here is the official federal .Gov Workers Comp Page as well in case you need any of those links, it's full of info about next steps! Good Luck! 💕

I had 43.×× hrs of PTO, when I separated from that employer I did not get paid for it. Can they do that legally? #termination #advice #unemployment

PTO upon separation is usually outlined in the Handbook. In my experience, if you resign with a 2-week notice, you should be paid. If you are termed due to the company going in a different direction, you should be paid. But, if you are termed for misconduct or you quit without notice, you forfeit your PTO. For best practices, know before you go! Good luck.

I’ve been unemployed since the lockdowns put my airline out of business. I knew it was going to be tough getting on at an airline so while I have been applying at any airline that’s hiring I’ve also been applying to other customer service jobs in my area. I’ve sent out hundreds of applications and am getting nothing coming back. No calls, nothing. I have over 20 years experience in customer service. I have a Bachelor’s degree. I’ve had my resume looked at by professionals, if I could afford to have one of them write it for me I would, but alas I have no money. If I can’t be a flight attendant for a while I would prefer a work from home position, I’m more than qualified to work as a call center rep or something like that. There’s a disconnect somewhere in this scenario and I can’t Figure out what it is. Why is this happening? #workfromhome #jobsearch #application #resume #interview

i was injured 3/10/21 off the job the company i worked for said i voluntarily quit when I didn't.. I challenged unemployment and the company in Jan of 1/22 the judge agreed with me and held company and Unemployment accountable and was given told by judge that they would pay me back pay to 3/21 .. and low and be hold its now 6/22 and unemployment still has not paid me a dime Mark Kellys office cant do anything about it or Kristen Sinnema .. i just don't get how i have all these medical paper work and given them all info regarding my case and they still refuse to pay me .. but some jack ass out there can give false info and boom they get paid like an annuity settlement.. its all corrupt.. I'm now 18 months behind on everything and the only money i do get is through donating Plasma

I was just fired from my job that I had been with the company for nearly 5 years now and the reason I was fired was unfair none the least and I filed for unemployment which I have been waiting for the funds for a few days now but just found out today I was denied because the employer said I was fired for using inappropriate language in a work environment. But he failed to mention the other parts to the story because it would incriminate him. Because 2 other employees came up to the store( I worked for pilot flying j truck stop ) not on the schedule and started problemswith me it really made me angry long story short they were girlfriends and one of them threatened me with a long metal flashlight and it was their (the girlfriends) word against mine. When I saw then metal object in her hand and he walking towards me i stated i was calling the police and they quickly got in their vehicle and Left. So why take off so quickly if you know your not doing anything wrong? Right? #termination #management #unemployment #advice

Ms. Geiger those four years that you were not working outside your home can be explain as been a care provider for a relative, also as a self-employed if you don't want to give personal information, but you can write down the the experience you learned caring for your sick relative. Very much CNA related work.
