In July of 2015, filed a charge for discrimination against my former employer with the EEOC office in Jackson, Ms. I was basically laughed at and ignored by the people working in the office and I never heard from them. I felt alone and as thoug...
If you filed a charge of discrimination you will get a notice of right to sue. If you have received that then contact an employment lawyer to see about pursuing your case. If you think you have suffered discrimination or retaliation for complaining about discrimination you need to file a charge of discrimination with the EEOC if you have not already. The EEOC not thoroughly investigating your case is not a deal breaker.See question

I'm working at wards in LC Mississippi. I worked 45 hours in one week but since our hours go in Thursday I didn't get any overtime. This is happened before where I work 103 in our work period from July 15-30. I didn't get any overtime on my check ...
If your employer has a bi- weekly period they can make it where you only get overtime if you work over 80 hours in that period. That means if you work 50 hours the first week you would be owed overtime if you work more than 30 the second week. The 2 weeks have to be consistent though. The employer cannot just switch up when they occur. For example, if you work 40 hours the first week and 50 the second week, the employer cannot use that second week to offset hours in the next work period if you only worked 30 in the 3rd week.See question
I have an attorney, but I'm wanting to poosibly retain a different attorney. How would I go about this? Its in regards to employment. Its been over 200 days since filing my charge with EEOC. I have been told I have a strong case and I would like t...
Whether you retain a new attorney or not there is no real benefit to asking for a right to sue early. If your case is that strong it is likely the EEOC would pursue your case for you, and asking for a right to sue would prevent that. Also by asking for a right to sue early could hinder the EEOC from getting information prior to filing your case that could help you analyze how you want to proceedSee question
(I am only asking because I am completing a research paper for college.However, this is a real life situation and if I can find enough information to prove that the employer is in the wrong, this person may pursue a case against them. Also, if yo...
In that situation it is purely a contract question. It depends on what the employment contract says in regard to residual sales, and how the contract can be altered. If there is no written contract then the employer can do whatever they want for future commission plans as long as they are complying with minimum wage requirements.See question
The employer wants me to pay back background check and drug test costs after quitting before my first day.
Most times the answer is no; however, if you have a contract that says you owe them those costs if you do not work for them for a certain period then the answer could be yes. Even if you technically owe them the money it is not likely that the employer would actually bring a lawsuit for those costs because of the small amount.See question

I work at a company that has a training period of 9-12 months. When I ask why our overtime pay is half of our regular time pay the only answer I get is "because you are in training". I understand I'm in training but for some reason this does feel ...
Being in a training period has nothing to do with it. When an employer pays an employee a salary for all hours worked they can pay half time for overtime since the salary is covering the straight time portion of the 1 1/2 overtime requirement.See question
My employer clocks me out without permission and refuses to give back my hours and threatens to fire me if I don't finish the job off the clock.
