My physician put in a pre authorization on Monday Sept 19. It was filed as non medically urgent. But amended to urgent on tuesday the 20. Dean health plan is not acknowledgin the amended prior authorization. And is making me wait up to 15 days for...
This is more of an insurance question than an employment law question. Perhaps being persistent in trying to contact Dean Health will work. Otherwise, seek out attorneys who handle insurance issues. Best of luck.See question
I was denied a job based on "results from background check". I filed complaint with DWD and their response included police reports of old convictions. They denied the job in April but the public records request is shows the police reports were o...
You will want to call an employment attorney licensed in Wisconsin. You are correct that for an employer to deny you a job based on conviction record, one of the defenses is that the positions is "substantially related" to the position sought.
If you've already filed a complaint with the DWD and the employer/Respondent has answered the Complaint, an attorney will need to go over the complaint and answer to help decide the merits.See question

It really depends on what your post said. You do not need to quote the post here on the internet as this could be used against you, but you will want to call an employment attorney and discuss the matter further. In some circumstance the National Labor Relations Act may protect you, but, again, it depends on what the post exactly said and what it was about.See question
I quit my job. My former employer has not deposited my check into my account and has not mailed my final paycheck. It is past the usual payday period, so they had two weeks to give final check. I can not get ahold of former employer. All office/em...
It's probably easiest to simply file a Labor Standards complaint with the Department of Workforce Development. The complaint form is available on their website and is very easy to use. Assuming the amount at issue isn't a whole lot, this is the best method of getting your last paycheck instead of hiring an attorney at this point.See question
I recently broke my lease and moved from an apartment complex and they are charging me for breaking my lease and an extra 2 months of rent due to me leaving early, the reason I moved was because our neighbor downstairs smoked constantly and the sm...
Did you know the complex was smoking when you moved in? The landlord has a duty to mitigate and find a new tenant, so they may not be able to collect as much money as they think. You are better off retaining an attorney to defend you so you don't end up owing thousands of dollars. Best of luck.See question

You do not provide enough facts to adequately assess whether you have a case against your former employer. Based on the facts you do provide, however, you do not state anything that is unlawful. Thus, you will want to be sure and call an employment law attorney here in Wisconsin to discuss this in further detail.See question
Fired unlawfully.allmost a year gone by and now we r before mediation
The previous attorney is correct. Without knowing the facts of your case, an attorney cannot evaluate and assess your case to determine whether this is a fair counteroffer. It could be way too high or way too low or just right. You will want to call an employment law attorney in Wisconsin to discuss this further.See question

This could be a combination of FMLA interference/retaliation, sex/pregnancy and wage discrimination (since men can't get pregnant, it'd be interesting to see if males in this workplace suffer the same pay cuts when they take any sort of leave). You'll want to call an employment attorney in Wisconsin to discuss the facts further and the process involved in either filing a complaint, or attempting to remedy this issue directly with the employer to avoid filing a complaint.See question
Me and My Girlfriend both work at American Family insurance and since than we have been nothing but harassed and made examples of by one of the Managers. Ex. Put on probation, have to send emails when we arrive, have to send emails when we go on o...
There is no law that forbids any sort of "general harassment" in the workplace. As one of the previous attorneys pointed out, you have to show that the harassment is because of your belonging to a "protected class" (i.e., because you're of a certain race, age, have a disability, etc). Otherwise, feeling singled out and 'picked on' for personal reasons is not actionable.
However, it may still be a good idea to call an employment lawyer and discuss it further. Sometimes there may be a law violation that wasn't considered or mentioned in your brief paragraph.See question

You may be eligible for FMLA leave and should inquire about your FMLA leave rights with the employer.
To be eligible for FMLA leave, an employee must work for a covered employer and:
-have worked for that employer for at least 12 months; and
-have worked at least 1,250 hours during the 12 months prior to the start of the FMLA leave; and,
- work at a location where at least 50 employees are employed at the location or within 75 miles of the location.
If you are not eligible for FMLA leave, the next inquiry may be whether you have a "qualified disability" and leave may be an accommodation. If your injury is temporary and will heal in the near future, you more than likely do not have a "qualified disability" and may simply be out of luck and have to apply for unemployment benefits.See question
