This was unknown to me until after I fired him & hired a new Contractor. The floors are now COVERED... Read more »
You could contact the Missouri Attorney General's office. If work was done poorly, as opposed to your money being taken and no work done, unfortunately that office is unlikely to go after the contractor on your behalf. You'd need to hire your own attorney to sue but before doing so you...Read more »
The bank used to obtain a loan for my company shut my debit card off and blocked access to funds needed to conduct my daily business operations due to my business partner and I having a disagreement. He used his connections at the bank to pull this stunt off. The account was clearly a joint... Read more »
It sounds like your business is the accountholder and that it be the party with standing to file any lawsuit. It also sounds like you and your partner are not going to agree on whether to pay an attorney thousands of dollars to sue the bank. You should carefully review the depository agreement...Read more »
You may show your landlord the statute. I don’t understand your question about attorneys’ fees? If you were to hire an attorney to sue then you’d have to compensate your attorney. The security deposit statute doesn’t provide for the recovery of attorneys’ fees. If your lease does,...Read more »
I was working at a small ma and pa dinner and they shut down the end of February for a remodel. Said it should be about a month and then we can come back. Well right around the middle of March they opened up, but only take out, cause of covid 19. I was not one to work at this time still, I applied... Read more »

I find it offensive and extremely racist. It has no place in a business such as Amazon. How do I force these companies to stop advertising BLM. If they are not willing to promote Alt-Right why are they allowed to promote BLM?
Out of state company. I am remote sales in St Louis area. Terminated with out cause. Pay structure was base pay, commission and bonus.

We are in Missouri. Law firm has our address and we even called them to settle the debt. They refused to settle, saying they will only accept full amount owed. They've requested a summons twice now, but we've never been served. The deadline just ran out on the second summons. I'm not... Read more »
EMPHATICALLY told him that we do not want to have to clean or tidy anything after the job was finished. He said he was the capable of doing the job as per request. (We are no longer able to do the work. I am disabled, and my husband is 87). Mr Cronin agreed.
You may indeed file suit but, under the facts your described, I don't think it makes sense to pay an attorney potentiallly thousands of dollars because your actual damages would be measured by the value to fix his mess. You can file suit pro se, but you or your husband will need to attend...Read more »
I’m not sure what you mean by “call in” to work. You didn’t provide context but in general an employer in Missouri may fire you for any reason at any time. There are exceptions. Meet with an attorney if you believe an exception to the employment-at-will doctrine.

The tools purchased he payed for his I paid for mine only couple things were purchased thru company or with... Read more »
I have no idea what your question means. Non-competition agreements are generally enforceable but they can be challenged depending on their terms.

We've lived in our house 20+ years and the fence in question was there when we bought the house. And the survey we had done showed no problem and the 2 previous owners had no problem with the property line
