- Q. is it legal for my former employer to deny a copy of a contract if I request one?
- A: If your employment with the company was within the last year the employer must permit you to inspect your personnel documents upon your written request. The inspection right includes contractual agreements you had with your employer. Pursuant to the Illinois Personnel Record Review Act that employer must provide you with the ability to inspect the documents within 7 working days after you make the request unless the employer can show that the deadline cannot be reasonably met, then the employer will have an additional 7 days to comply. You can request copies of information in your file and the employer is allowed to charge a fee of the actual cost of duplicating the information. If your former employer continues to deny you access to your personnel file you can file a complaint with the Illinois Department of Labor or contact an attorney to file suit for compliance.
- Q. My job is planning to deny my pay from the FFCRA. They have more than 50 employees. Am I entitled to 2/3rds wages?
- A: This depends on why you are unable to work. The FFCRA provides that employers must provide all employees: ~ Two weeks (up to 80 hours) of paid sick leave at the employee’s regular rate of pay where the employee is unable to work because the employee is quarantined, and/or experiencing COVID-10 symptoms and seeking a medical diagnoses. ~ Two weeks (up to 80 hours) of paid sick leave at two-thirds the employee’s regular rate of pay because the employee is unable to work because the employee must care for an adult subject to quarantine or a child whose school or child care provider is closed for reasons related to COVID-19. The Act provides that employers must provide to employees it has employed for at least 30 days: ~Up to an additional 10 weeks of paid expanded family and medical leave at two-third the employee’s regular rate of pay where the employee is unable to work due to the need to care for a child whose school or child car provided is closed or unavailable for reasons related to COVID-19 *This response is for general purposes and should not be considered legal advice.
