I was working sales in construction and my employment was recently terminated as the employer decided to go their separate ways. I was provided 1 months pay in leu of notice. However, I have outstanding commissions that are still owed to me which I've reasonably estimated and provided to my former employer, which is now 2 months outstanding. Several proposals have been signed but my contract states I get paid commissions upon signed construction value, and the projects are yet to be built. Is there a legal time frame for when my former employer must pay outstanding commissions?
I have not yet been terminated but I feel that my employer is gearing up and trying to find any reason possible to get rid of me...Since I have disclosed my medicinal Marijuana prescription to my employer I have been treated differently. I have been treated as if I have done something wrong. My manager has sat by and let the HR manager speak to me like I am a child in the principals office being scolded. I have recorded a number of conversations that I felt should be recorded. Today 08/16/2019 the HR manager is back in the office (normally she is not based out of this office) I am constantly in a state of dread and panic based on how I have treated. What can I do? there is so much more to this story but I hardly have the time to type it all out. Do you have any suggestions?
I was terminated without cause in April after 1 year of employment when my mentor left the business. My mentor had a business that was essentially sharing space with the main business. I worked for both businesses part time. There were no issues with my performance or attitude but the owners didn't want me to have any association with my mentor (either working for or speaking to my mentor on my personal time). My mentor provides specialized services that the business owners do not provide but they claimed they let me go due to a conflict of interest. They gave me generous compensation but I still feel that it was wrong and unjust. Not to mention it was drawn out as they decided what to do with me. Do I have any grounds in this situation?
The owners of the business that I work for have sold the land and building from which it operates. They did not sell the business. They intend to just shut down the business. The owners have not told us any of this information yet and I do not know when they intend to do so. Long story about how I found out this inside information. But it is from reliable sources. Whether it is true or not, I am curious what this means for me as well as the rest of the staff. I am senior manager here under the owners. Am I/we entitled to any sort of compensation in this situation? Are my employers obligated to give notice? etc... Thank you very much for your time!!!
I was fired by the general manager for going to the owners of Dominoes Pizza to report sexual harassment by the general manager that I had witnessed against another employee. The employee had also asked me to speak on his behalf. The general manager found out I had gone to the owners about this said it was my fault the employee got moved to a new location sent me home and later that evening sent me a text message saying he was terminating my employment due to attitude and performance. There are more details but this is the basics. Is this wrongful dismissal
