Hi,

So I'd posted a couple of times that I'd lost my job in February.

It takes me months to get reimbursed sometimes, and I have only had the situation where something was reimbursed twice.

Mel,

I am an employer myself, so I see that side first and the employee's second. That being said, it sounds like this is sort of a "bait and switch" situation - they hired you - and are likely paying you - for one level job and then, delighted by your skills and talents, immediately stuck you into a bigger position doing more things.

This happens, I promise you, because the employers have a hard time finding ANYONE with a brain. The solution is, to me, quite obvious. You need to dig up the job description, if you were given one.

And on the whiff of sexual harrassment - small business owners often have no clue how jumpy corporate people are abotu that kind of stuff.

I'm curious about why the other people start later than you.

This is what you wrote:

Anyhow, I appreciate the mention of "bait and switch"........I do feel this way somewhat, but I am just going to swallow it and wait until it's been three months.

Hi,

Yes, I do know that I'm chickening out - maybe I'm waiting for them to initiate the conversation.

The hard facts of life with this company culture is to come in late and stay late.

She has every right to politely comply with the terms set forth in the original agreement.
