I have worked for a dental network as a director for business integrity and development for 2 years on salary. The salary was $90,000, included a car plus travel expenses, health and dental benefits and 4 weeks vacation. They gave me three months notice stating they would like to negotiate a different contract that would include some salary but mostly commissions and would propose it to me before the end of my current contract. My current contract end September 1st and I have still not seen a new contract proposed to me. They did ask for my input on what I would like to see in the new contract which I gave months ago. If by September 1st I have no contract what are my rights? Also, I will be 56 on Sunday and do have a health condition (lung transplant 5 years ago) which requires life long medication which they were aware about when I started.
12 yrs. employed by golf & country course. 6 months/yr. $13500. dollar, salaried position as gardener/landscaper. Female, 58 yrs. old. Twenty yrs. skilled experience in the field. My boss, superintendent of turf dept. informed me my budget expenditures were over $1800 dollars. As a result, due to the fact she has no more money in her budget to cover additional expenditures, maybe I could just not finish my 6 months, leave Oct 1st instead of Oct 30th, as I have done over the years. Would it be an option for me. I stated it would NOT be an option for me! She informed me, she would have to lay-off another staff member as a result. She stated, I was to choose a staff member for her. I refused. She stated, I could go on IE benefits. I could still come to work, I just would not get paid. I stated, by accepting an early lay off, would essentially wipe-out my entire 6 mos. of accumulated hours to qualify for IE. I would be 2-3 wks. short hours to qualify. I made it clear this was not an option for me. She stated, she would have to lay-off another staff member as a result and I was choose someone. I refused. The conversation ended. Nothing was resolved. I left her office. My concern. She may proceed to lay me off come October 1st, the cause being over the budget. Over budget, which has happened in prior yrs. never an issue before now. I rely on IE benefits over the winter months. It would be the first time in 20yrs. my qualilfying hrs. would be short, thus, I would have to apply as a new applicant next year, qualifying hrs. be 900 hrs. My 6 months qualifying hrs. are 702 hrs. I would never reach the 900 hrs to every qualify again in the future. I can protect myself?
I was a car salesman who worked on commission. We would sell cars and were paid commissions the following month after the cars were delivered whether it was the next day or 3 months away on a factory order. I quit over 8 months ago but prior to doing so sold a limited edition car that would take about 8 months to arrive from the factory. This vehicle has now been delivered to the customer (in June) and I should be due the commission. When I inquired about at the dealership I was told since I am no longer in the role, I do not get the commission. I earned this money while I was employed by them so I feel I am entitled to it. Just because there was a long delivery time and the car arrived after I left, I should not forfeit my entitled commission. What are my options?
