Q. Mandated masks at work and anxiety issues put me on Unpaid leave. What are my rights? (I am not anti mask)
A: First off, sorry for the issues your having at work during these uncertain times. There are many issues regarding Covid19 a/k/a Coronovirus's effects on the workplace. With that in mind, you should immediately make a complaint to OSHA if you believe the company is not following proper guidelines and/or did not train on the proper use of Personel Protection Equipment. You should contact your doctor first as your medical condition is important before any legal issue. You can discuss your case with OSHA on all issues regarding your employment environment, including the wearing of the mask. I would request the employer engage in an interactive process to accommodate your disability (anxiety). Time is of the essence.
Q. Can a door-to-door sales company refuse to pay you your commission earnings if you aren't bound to set dates or hours?
A: Hello there. The facts you pose begs the questions what provided reason by the company for not paying your commissions, and whether you have a written contract that governs the relationship. Also, the state law in the state you live in may govern your relationship with the company. Generally, a company cannot withhold duly earned commissions from you without any justified reasons. Depending on the number of unpaid commissions owed to you, you can initiate a smalls claims proceeding or you may have to file a suit; also, this will depend on the contract and whether there is a valid arbitration clause.
Q. I received a call from my ex supervisor while I was on low need status informing me that my position was terminated
A: Sir, in today's employment setting, this is a cutting edge legal question. First, more information is needed, for example, why were you actually on leave? Was it medical or just covid-19 reasons in general? Thus, it is hard to answer your question without greater details about the employer, work history, whether a union is involved, miscommunication, part of a plant closing. Many issues as you can see. You should seek legal services asap, as time is of the essence.
