How to determine the last working day for a laid-off employee

I work for a very small company that has to lay off an employee due to budget restraints. I have heard that in firing someone, the day of firing should be the employee's last day in the office. This protects the company from any harmful backlash. Does this rule hold true for layoffs as well?

Can I legally log into an employees webmail if they left their password on a company computer?

Say I have an employee who was using a company computer. They departed under bad terms. I suspect that they took proprietary and valuable company documents with them when they left by sending them to themselves or someone else using a webmail service. If I can recover their webmail password from the company computer they were assigned, is it legal for me to log in and check to see if they did this? Why or why not? [more inside]

Suggestion Box

I have been charged with developing a employee suggestion system. Has anyone seen a organization do it right? My challenges are in eliciting valuable suggestions ( not complaints ), recognizing contributions, and defining what suggestions are good versus those that are bad. Has anyone seen a system that actually works, gets people engaged, and gets results?

Very late W-2

My employer has not given me my W-2. I've contacted the IRS, and gotten a substitute form that I have to fill out myself, but since I was never given paystubs, (tax information was usually written on the paycheck itself, and, being silly.lazy, I didn't photocopy my checks,) I have to guess at the amount I owe. I'm also concerned about filing for Arizona income tax, but when I called them they said I don't need a W-2, which dosen't make much sense. I've gotten the run-around from my employer (the company owner,) with her blaming the accountant. I want my W-2, but I also think they deserve some sort of punishment/sanction for this. What can I do?

Japanese Salariman Given No Work in Empty Room, Instead of Layoff?
