My manager has always been verbally abusive but no one, including myself ever told upper management about it because we were afraid we'd lose our jobs. I was in my office one morning when my manager walked in and blocked my doorway and accused me ...
You should discuss this with an attorney directly. You may have final pay issues, you have unemployment issues, and you likely have an assault/battery issue. These items should all be addressed together. Likely there are other issues that you have not begun to address.See question
i was a no call no show for my shift when i did call my employer told me they took my no call no show as me quitting. then they accused me of stealing and filed a lawsuit against me. can they withhold my paycheck?
No. They can fire you, but cannot hold your paycheck. If they do, you could be due penalty wages under Oregon law. The penalty wages are calculated by multiplying your normal hourly rate of pay, times 8 hours per day, for each day they are late. It maximizes at 30 days. In addition, you could be due a matching amount in damages under the unlawful deduction statutes. There could be some issues with getting the employer to pay your attorney fees, but because of the deduction, that likely would be something a wage claim attorney could work around because the provisions which entitle you to attorney fees are different between the deduction statutes and the late payment of final wages statutes.See question
I have been working for the past 5 years as a salaried manager- now we are hourly and based on a 50 hour work week-we have never been scheduled over 45 in the past 5 years-why or what law made them do this.
Overtime exemptions have changed. Generally, in the past, if the employer paid a very small salary, and the employee managed 2 or more employees and met a few other criteria, the employer could avoid payment of overtime. Recently, the federal Department of Labor has increased the salary amount that employers must pay to avoid overtime under federal law. (Fair Labor Standards Act). Likely your being changed to hourly because they do not want to pay that high of a salary. This way, if you work extra hours (over 40 hours per week) you will be entitled to overtime.See question

Employees are to be paid for the time that an employer suffers and permits them to work. The issue is two fold: (1) whether you can prove that you did the work, and (2) whether the employer had knowledge, or reason to know, that you were performing the work. If so, then you must be compensated. You should contact an attorney directly who does wage and hour work. They will instruct you how to track the information in a way that is likely to result in your ability to recover your wages and penalties. The penalties usually are far greater than the wages.See question
I used to work for a Verizon authorized retailer. Early in July, I had to leave unexpectedly due to family health issues. On July 19th (after I had quit), a sales contest ended (whoever sold the most of course items), and I was one of 5 winners of...
The issue is not an easy one to answer with a definite yes or no. The contest rules should answer your question. If they do not have them, other contests rules may give you an idea. Having been said, when they listed as the winner of the contest, it tends to lend credibility to the argument you should get the money. Having an attorney look over the information is a good idea.See question
I am a cook, I get "tipped" out every day i work. I have no knowledge of how the percentage is come up with. I sometimes do not receive the cash reported. I spoke with the owner of restaurant about missing cash reported and she offered me no solu...
Generally the answer is no. If you are not getting the tips, they cannot tax you on the tips. They can only lawfully tax you for income you receive. The problem will be proving the amount of tips you receive. You will likely need accurate descriptions of the amounts you receive each night so that they can be compared to the amounts on your check. In any event, if you can prove it, then the taxes would represent an unlawful deduction, entitling you to damages or $200 per deduction, whichever is greater. In addition, you could get several thousand in penalties depending upon other facts. For instance, if you employment has ended and you still have not been paid. Or if it affects your overtime or drags you below minimum wage. Some wage claim attorneys take these cases on a contingency fee basis, basically being paid by your employer to win your claim.See question
I work for Jimmy John and they have a policy that states that if you need time off work or call in sick you are required to find you own replacement for that shift and if you cannot find one 5hen your required to be there
Generally the answer is no. Oregon instituted sick leave laws that allow employees to get time off for illness. Most employers must pay the sick time.See question

The issue is whether you are an independent contractor. If so, the important sub-question that must be asked is whether you are you a licensed contractor in Oregon.
If you are not an independent contractor, then you must be an employee and covered by the wage and hour laws. If so, you are likely due penalties and could also recover your attorney fees.See question
