Legal Answers
176 Questions Answered

Q. I am a member of a non-profit called Christian Healthcare Ministries.It is a ministry where members share members health
A: Whether you have any legal recourse depends on the contents of your contract with the organization and with their own established past practices. You should take your paperwork to an attorney familiar with contract law and review it with him or her in detail.
Q. Do I have any legal rights to co-workers, public knowing my medical information and harassment, without documentation?
A: Legally, "harassment" isn't usually what people think it is. I would need much more information to determine if you have been the target of illegal harassment. However, you should not provide that information here on this public forum. You should consider discussing that with an employment law attorney near you. As far as your medical information is concerned, it ordinarily cannot be revealed to the public or to co-workers except in limited circumstances unless you gave permission for the information to be revealed. You should also discuss that in detail with a local employment law attorney.
Q. I am in Oklahoma. Is it legal for an employer to hold my last check because of an exit checklist or exit survey?
A: No. Under the Oklahoma payday law, checks must be issued within certain time frames. An employer is not permitted to withhold payroll from an employee except under special circumstances. None of the circumstances you mentioned are special circumstances that allow an employer to withhold payment or to deduct from your paycheck..
