I work in nursing home. My employer wants to open employee yearly evaluations to residents and family members. I think this is violation of employee rights, ie, no one should know when any employees evaluation is due except the supervisor. Please help!?

Residents and their families should have a voice as to those that are supposed to be caring for them, but it is usually in addition to an employer evaluation. Check your state employement office for applicable laws.

Can a husband cancel his wife's health insurance if not legally separated?

If not legally separated, you will probably have to wait until open enrollment through your employer to cancel her insurance. If you do get legally separated, you can cancel insurance as you have had "change in status." Usually insurance companies will process changes outside of open enrollment when you have a change in family status. An example of this would be getting married, having a baby, or getting divorced/legally separated.

Can you be fired for going on workers comp?

Absolutely not. Someone in my family is going through a similar situation. An employee can not be fired while on worker's compensation.WC law prohibits ONLY firing workers for CLAIMING WC. If you deserve firing for other reasons, the employer will act.However, If the employer can prove without a doubt that the claims filed by employee were false, then the employer has the right, and obligation, to report this, resulting in the termination of the employee.The standard of evidence is not "beyond a doubt", but much lower.The problem is when the employee comes off of the worker's compensation program. Frequently this is when the employee is most at risk for being unfairly fired. This is because the U.S. still has a few "right to fire" laws in effect.No law in America prohibits an employer from firing an employee for conduct, performance, or attendance. A few laws prohibit firing based on race, sex, age, religion, of color.It is an unfortunate situation, not only because the employer has to right to terminate the employee, but it is nearly impossible to prove that the reason was discriminatory. *nearly*Because everybody in America supposedly get's their 'day in court', the employee can try to subpena the employer and have the case heard in front a judge.Being on worker's compensation is necessary but it can be a tedious process to maintain a good standing with the employer. $ is especially important to people, especially now with the economy in such a bad state.

It depends. If it is using a company-owned phone, then all the employer would have to do is phone up the telecoms provider and ask them for transcripts of calls made. If it is with his mobile, you cannot request information about transcripts legally due to the Data Protection Act. If you believe he is partaking in illegal or questionable activities, contact the Police and they will be able to deal with the matter.

Employees with 1 yrs service must be allowed time off for serious medical events - their own or close family - even if the employer has no sick leave plan, or even if the employee has zero sick leave left.

Can your employer's health insurance require your husband to take his employer's health insurance if his is not free and not as good as yours?

My employer requires that my husband participate in his company's health insurance or they will drop him from their insurance. Insurance is a choice offered as a benefit by the employer because the employer is paying a portion of the cost to be insured. You do not have to participate if you don't want to. Also, the question being answered is that can an employer force an employee's spouse to take coverage offered elsewhere: NO. If a company offers a family health plan, they CANNOT specify that a spouse take other insurance if available. They CAN require that if you are declining coverage from them (your own employer), that you show you have coverage elsewhere.
