I was having a very personal private conversation with my manager regarding my medical issues when another employee had been listening decided to come in, sat down like she belonged there, and started asking my manager questions about my condition...
Doubtful. Best course of action in the future is to have those discussions in a private place where other employees cannot overhear or participate.See question
So leave Sunday night at 10 pm. Back to work Monday at 6 am. And work 8 hours each day. Is that 8 hours, which is not sleep hours, legal. Because you have to drive home. Fall asleep. Get up take shower. So only 6 hours sleep maximum. Is that leg...
Generally in Texas employers are not required to provide a minimum rest period between shifts. There are a few exceptions to the general rule, such as specific jobs (ex. truck drivers) or when a medical condition requires leave periods. Retail sales are not an exception.
Some states do require minimum periods for broader ranges of workers. Unfortunately Texas is not one of those states.See question
I have a customer who threatened me with a lawsuit for a $700 refund for a cancelled event since my signature is on the receipt. I am the office assistant and my employer was the manager/owner of the small event venue. My employer had originally s...
Highly doubtful the customer would prevail against you. If a claim exists it likely exists only against the former employer or the landlord.See question

It's certainly possible that you have a discrimination claim against your employer. Signing the severance agreement would require giving up a possible claim but not signing the agreement would result in losing the severance offer. Best thing you could do is talk to a local employment attorney ASAP in greater detail to help you decide which path may be best for you.
Also, congratulations on the future family addition!See question
A fellow employee is claiming that I cuss him out.this is not true.there was one witness and he said it is not true.
Yes, your employer can lawfully terminate you even if it believes you did not do what was alleged. Texas employees have very little job protection by law. You might receive unemployment benefits but that isn't as good as having a full paycheck.
Chances are slim that a business would fire an employee for cursing at another employee unless there is either a lot more to the story or there is a history of problems with the employee.See question
They say they know I worked there but company has split three or four times. I get the round around from the company that pays the retirement funds
This happens frequently when companies divide and merge because the records are shuffled between companies and it isn't always immediately obvious who took ownership of your retirement assets. You likely need to hire an attorney familiar with retirement plan issues to help you track down these benefits.See question
So I worked at a Brazilian steakhouse and I been there two years I've seen this lady run out mainly women she has called me by different names spoke to other employees about me she has also scheduled me on days she is aware I cannot work I've also...
Not really sure from this statement of facts that there is an unlawful form of discrimination involved but there may be more facts than you have disclosed here that support a credible claim for harassment. An unlawful form of harassment occurs when you are singled out for mistreatment due to one or more protected traits (race, ethnicity, national origin, age over forty, sex, gender, sexual orientation in some parts of the state, disability, or genetic disease) or the exercise of specific legal rights (like taking FMLA leave).
What stands out to me as a potential problem is that you say you were required to work without pay. Unless you were an accurately classified exempt employee then you are owed pay for the unpaid hours. You should talk to an employment attorney about your ability to recover those funds along with other available remedies.See question
I want to go eat at a place That I used to work but quit I am kind of scared she will try and kick me out because she never liked me is it ok for her to kick me out for personal reasons she has done it to previous employees
If the reason is purely because you are a former employee then the restaurant is free to kick you out.See question
At my job when you get your schedule there is no end of shift time. I'm an emt.
Unless you work under a contract or collective bargaining agreement that requires a specific shift, have some form of leave that requires a specific schedule, you are not permitted to leave work for reasonable amounts of time for religious practices, or are being singled out from your colleagues through an unlawful form of discrimination, then your employer is probably lawfully permitted to do this. Generally in Texas an employer is free to create and change schedules at its discretion. That said, if you are working more than forty hours in a workweek and are non-exempt then you must be paid overtime for each hour over forty.See question
I currently work for a company and there has been tension between me and my manager. I recently took some Paid Time Off to go visit my mother. After returning from vacation I was back at work for two days before hurting my back at the gym. I to...
A key issue here is whether your leave qualified as FMLA leave or any other type of leave. There are far more restrictions on what an employer can do during an FMLA leave. Another relevant issue here is that your employer says it unintentionally sent that letter to you. If that is true, and perhaps it is, then your employer may not be on the hook for an honest mistake.
You would be wise to talk with a local employment attorney.See question
