It is unethical and illegal for the employer to cancel an employee's health insurance without notification. How would you handle this situation after your employer notifies you 3 months later? #workfromhome #jobsearch #interview #application #hiringevents #coronavirus #deliverydriver #foodservices #warehouselogistics #ridesharedriver

There is absolutely no reason for an employer to cancel any employees insurance or any other benefits. That is for HR or courts to work thru. That smells like a lawsuit and the employer has every right. I have been a manager in many locations and has never canceled any employees benefits whatsoever

I'd go to a lawyer and sue the employer into giving me a 50k/yr salary just to shut up and sit at home not badmouthing them about it.

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?

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

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

My sister has been working for this company for 6 years. She did really well for the most part, got along great with her coworkers and her boss. Always scored above average on her performance reviews. When covid hit her boss quit and another person was promoted to the position. This new boss made life a living hell for my sister. Making it very obvious to my sister and the rest of the team that she wanted my sister to quit. Well, it got so toxic that my sister decided to quit even without a backup. The new boss wasted no time hiring someone else, someone she knew and liked better too. Now the boss is asking my sister to spend her final two weeks training this new person. My sister wanted to close out her accounts and tie up loose ends, not train someone on her way out. Anything she can do in her situation? Pretty messed up if you ask me. #advice

You sister will not have anything to worry about because whoever that she’s going to be training to replace her will not be able to comprehend her job in 2 weeks, I would suggest to just finish out the job, whatever that they’re asking her to do and don’t worry about if she is a trainer or not. And just keep life moving, it’s too short to worry about small things. When you leave a Job, always leave it in good standings in such a way that they will miss you .and you won’t ever have to worry if I did the right thing. Tell your Sister good luck on her endeavors.

Your story is right out of The Hatchet Man's Playbook. There's a part in it that reads something like " Every new manager will fire at least 2 perfectly qualified employees during his first six months of tenure." Your sister was fired bc a) her talent was a threat and b) the manager wanted to bring in some of his buddies to shore up his political base within the company. Your sister should have gone on the offensive but like most ppl she just rolled with the punches & hoped the manager's attitude would improve. It never does. Its always you or them. There are no truces.

I worked for the same company for 12 years, I got sick with covid19 and it was like 3 weeks it took me to get past it but I still felt really bad, my doctor released me to go back to work so I did, my 3rd day back my roommate was diagnosed with covid19 and I thought he wasn't going to make it, he almost died but by grace of God he didn't. My boss told me that since my roommate was positive for covid19 I couldn't return to work until I had a negative test results to show him,in the beginning there was a shortage on test's and only people with positive results and 16 days of quarantine time could get tested, it took me a long time to be able to get tested but my boss said I couldn't come back until I had one so when I finally got a negative result (a couple of months later) I went back to work and that first morning back the owner came out of his office and started yelling at me saying I was gone that whole time by my own choice and when I tried to tell him that it was his son my supervisor that told me not to come back he said that I was lying so I said he should talk to his son cause he is wrong and I would go home and come back in the morning cause he had me very upset and I still wasn't feeling 100% he told me to hit the gate and don't bother coming back so I went home and filled for unemployment and I recieved unemployment from the state of Kentucky where I lived and worked for 12 years .I drew approximately $16,000 from unemployment and never had any trouble or heard from my exemployer the whole time and now all of a sudden they're saying that I quite and wasn't fired and Kentucky unemployment is saying that I have to pay all that back. 12 year's at the same job I should have had been able to draw it regardless, now I don't know what to do cause now I have medical problems and can't work, how am I supposed to pay back unemployment benefits when I should have been covered anyways. I don't know what to do, any suggestions?

I was denied UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS I waited to receive for 19 weeks, I stated my reason for unemployment was because of COVID-19 And I was promised after receiving my temporary nursing certificate , the last job I worked for as a CNA after passing all exams I never received my CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANCE CERTIFICATION ……..even though I worked during the pandemic and I felt like I needed to attend to my family but I was told my reason for unemployment was personal it’s like who does this government care about withholding money I made and I need and can’t get is truly insane no matter the reason of unemployment you should still receive some type of support for the government but this taught me how much the government doesn’t care about it’s citizens #unemployment #americancitizen#mentalhealth

I work at Walmart, they do provide mask and and sanitary hand wash stations. I know where I work if you show proof you are fully vaccinated, we qualify for a $100.00 bonus.

I loved working for Apollo I wasn't long enough for me if not for COVID and surgery on my shoulder I would still be there. I would go back if I could get my DM. If it wasn't for COVID I wouldn't have had the surgery.
