- Q. On pay stub it ha F-LCBF mean
- A: It sounds like something your employer put in manually. It is not a standard abbreviation used on paystubs. I would ask you HR department.
- Q. Can a company use screenshots taken from a private message on social media to discipline an employee?
- A: If you work for a private employer, yes. Your employer can take action. The employee who intercepted them, however, may have violated laws in how they were obtained.
- Q. I think I am being taken advantage of at work. Do I have a case? More info below.
- A: 1) Yes. The relationship is at will so, in theory, you could quit at any point for the employer not doing what was promised. 2 and 3) More information is needed on what you were doing in the position. If you are full time, you should be entitled to the same benefits as other full time employees. 4) Yes this is legal. 5) If you were complaining that you were misclassified and this is the actual reason for termination, you may have a case for retaliation
- Q. Can my former employer withhold wages for not returning my employee handbook?
- A: This could violate the Fair Labor Standards Act if the deduction of wages results in you making less than minimum wage for all hours worked.
- Q. I work in a dental lab,never signed a no compete,was fired for trying to do work on the side. Any legal recourse?
- A: No legal recourse for you against your employer. If your employer does this work and you are competing while an employee, there may be legal recourse that your employer can take but that would depend on Wisconsin laws.
- Q. Our company just changed payroll companies. They just started rounding our start time to 5am even if we are there.
- A: A rounding practice that, over a period of time, results in a failure to compensate employees for all hours works violates the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). This is federal law that is pursued in federal court and can be pursued by a law firm from out of state.
- Q. Im a school nurse being wrongfully accused & terminated. Would be better to get employment or nursing/health lawyer?
- A: It would be best to get an employment lawyer that has experience in administrative hearings, board appeals, and hearings before the nurses' board.
- Q. Is it legal for a employer to not give me and my 2 friends our checks after they fired us and are pressing charges on us
- A: It is not legal for your employer to withhold pay for more than 30 days. They are required to pay you minimum wages for ALL hours worked.
- Q. I was placed on administrative leave because I asked for legal representation when talking to HR
- A: You have a right to legal representation but not necessarily during your meetings with your company. Further analysis and information is needed to determine if this is violates public policy law.
