What does he take me for?

I'm pretty sure my boss's accountant lied to me about sending out my paycheck to cover up my boss's lack of funds, thus leaving me without a paycheck for a full pay period. [more inside]

Is there a way for my boss to screw me out of my $$

I work for a magazine publishing company, and I think I am making a lateral move to another company which offers more upside potential in the future. I get a base salary, but most of my income comes from commission. The company I work for is relatively small, a LLC, and I dont think there are any $$ problems. My boss however is somewhat of a tyrant. My concern in leaving is that he will try and find a way to stiff me out of any remaining due commission to me. It is currently and ranges around 20k, in which he owes me, and pays me off in increments per paycheck. When I started here, we had put the agreement down on paper...(more) [more inside]

Fired! How to Deal?

About a year ago, I was unjustly fired. My employer was careful to do it in a way to avoid any legal disputes. How does one get over thoughts of revenge and confrontation. I've considered sending a letter to the person responsible, explaining exactly how I feel about it all. I was never given a proper explaination and the whole thing feels unresolved. I realize a letter is somewhat juvenile and unproductive but I feel this might help me cope. I really want to put this all behind me.

My boss is driving me crazy. Should I ask the head of HR to mediate, or go it alone?

My boss is driving me crazy. It's time to have a sit-down. Should I ask the head of HR to mediate, or go it alone?


BTW, part of the discussion will include the issue of mind games: as perceived by me, as practiced by the Boss. This is a huge risk, but life has gotten unbearable. (Thanks in advance.)

Boss charging sales rep for customer's bounced check

ShadyBossFilter: The situation is this: items were purchased at a cost of $6800 from one company to sell to another company. Our customer either bounced or stopped payment on the check, but our boss is trying to leave our sales rep holding the bag (i.e. he is deducting the cost of goods from his paycheck). The sales rep stood to take in a percentage of the profit as commission, but I would have assumed that the company takes on the risk in situations like this, not the employee. We're in New Jersey. What's the deal? (p.s. Today is my last day.) [more inside]
