Minimum hours required to be paid regardless of hours worked my employer?
September 6,2019 at 1:08PM UTC
I'm a nanny and I'm currently working part-time with an average anywhere from though and a 15 hours to the higher-end 30 depending on the parents schedule. But there's going to be some unusual situations coming up with mom having a new baby towards the end of the year and I noticed that one of the parents hours is being cut back as far as what the required to work for the day. They have a schedule of 5 p.m. to 1 a.m. but yeah their parent gets home anywhere between about 5:30 or so. I have a quite a bit of distance to drive on a normal day out traffic which is my decision but I'm worried that they could do what they've done in the past and asked me to come in for just like an hour and a half or two hours. And when it takes me an hour I'm more to get home or get there in the morning with rush hour traffic it's just kind of silly to only get paid for let's say an hour and a half or two hours. although I don't want to run the risk of losing my job by saying repeatedly that I can't do those hours but isn't it required by the employer to give you some sort of minimum amount per day? I know when I worked in management we are required to pay a minimum of three to four hours or something a day regardless of how many hours they actually worked so I remember my supervisor saying well go ahead and keep them there and give them whatever jobs you can because if we're going to have to pay them by law might as well have them there physically. I know this is not a corporate job but I still think fairness should be taking into account here.

I don't know why, but I have been feeling hesitant about publishing a portfolio.
I just feel so scared in posting all of my accomplishments online where anyone can see. I've tried multiple times creating a career portfolio and I always abandon it midway. I also feel like I don't have enough accomplishments I can brag about. Any advice?

I am not quite sure what to put this in the comments.
But at my work, they pay the males more than they pay the females, even if the females have degrees. I have three degrees. The two men that I work with get more then I do. The one that just got hired gets $2 more an hour then I do & has no experience or degrees, the other one has been there one month longer then me & is handsome & never even finished school with a very shady past & gets $3 more an hour then I do. I have also worked in this industry for over 25 years. I’m very upset about this & have already approached management about it twice. Any suggestions?

I ran across this article on salary negotiation.
The tips come from an Indiana University professor of business law and management. I thought I would share since I've seen posts in the past asking how to negotiate.

I have been working for a company for over 7 years.
I'm a valued worker and am excellent at what I do. I am an accounts manager and I spend a lot of time working with customers and ensuring the accounts of sales projects are correct and in scope of their contracts. However, our workplace is toxic. The salesMEN are very demanding and demeaning of their coworkers. They are non-communicative, demanding, and rude. The boss seems to be more interested in money from sales than the moral of the overall workers. I have had confrontations with a couple of these salesmen as I try to provide support to them. My boss just told me he wants me to work from home because they feel I'm am difficult to work with. I am concerned about not being able to fully complete my job tasks now as I am isolated from my co-workers. Even though me boss has provided me with computers, dual monitors, phone and a printer at my home, it feels like I'm being pushed out.

I have a hearing in my county with the Department of Labor and the School System where I worked.
I was a clerk who was forced to resign so they wouldn’t have to pay unemployment. I appealed and now three years later, I have a hearing. Any suggestions on the best way to handle these jerks ?
