my boss punched me, my new hire quit after three days, and more

Ask A Manager

New hire quit after three days — should I alert her references? I know that there isn’t an Alabama state or federal law the requires this, but she won’t give me the information. In most states, including Alabama, employers are required to give employees a pay stub each time they are paid (although it can be electronic in some states). It’s seven short answers to seven short questions. Here we go… 1. My boss punched me in the arm.

Ask A Manager

Recently the company I work for has faced great financial strain and has not been able to consistently meet payroll. (So We’re in Alabama. As for breaks, Alabama doesn’t require work breaks for people over 15, but you can certainly try explaining to your manager that you need time to eat lunch or you won’t be able to focus or work efficiently the rest of the day. I quit my old job before my new job was finalized, and now I’m unemployed.
