You need to start calling around for attorney's ASAP, as attorney's here cannot contact you (please don't contact me, I can't help you). Use the find a lawyer link above and find someone who does landlord/tenant or perhaps trusts and estates.
You can go after him for a penalty wage, which is 8 hours per day at your hourly rate for each day it was late. Attorney's usually do this on a contingency, meaning you don't pay them any fees unless they get something for you. Even at $15 per hour and if it was 10 days late, translates into a...Read more »
A 14-yr.-old was struck by a car on the corner by our property in 9/17. We learned of this in August 2019, when we received a letter from a lawyer saying we are partially liable because our hedge was overgrown, and our homeowners insurance should pay. The hedge was overgrown/very tall when we... Read more »
The reason given was “lack of confidence to do my job”. I asked for supporting documents and was given none. I saved the company 500k in payroll alone by cross training in my department rather than hiring. Just before I was let go I saved the company 78k in annual paper costs by switching to... Read more »
Based on what you wrote, no. Employment is at will, they can fire you for most any reason, and they do not have to give you the reason. Now, had they fired you because you were black, white, gay, straight, male, female, or similar (as in because you were one of those, not that you are one of those)...Read more »
We self record are time in 15 min increments on an honor system. The rule is to keep track of your own time since the crew all have slightly different tasks and often clock out at different times. I also keep a log book of all job duties, times, appointments, etc. Last month my boss docked my check... Read more »
I was visibly sick , I lost my voice. I cook at a hibachi grill , I couldn't communicate with my customers and I had to work the entire shift. I had to try and yell and my voice was completely gone the next day so I said no when he tried to force me to work. I went to work still sick the next day,... Read more »

There are a lot of things going on, but yes, it sounds like he would owe you a minimum of 8 hours of pay for each day he was late. But there is the possibility he owes more, a lot more. You should contact an employment law attorney near you to discuss.
I was told 1000$ for not making us take 15 minute breaks and for not keeping a record of it ? Can I make him pay me 30min for everyday I didn't get a lunch ? If so how how many shifts can I make him pay me for ?
Garnishment and a draw are two different things. A garnishment is a legal process your employer cannot do without being told to do it by someone with authority, such as a court; or if it is for their own purposes of money you owe them, only after they get a judgment from a court.
It con proceed for a short while, but check the court records to see if you were actually served. Just because you are not served like you see in the movies does not mean you were not served. There are many ways to serve someone.
My workers compensation claim was accepted and medical treatment started. My employer terminated me 3 weeks after the accident and now I am denied any monetary benefits. Should I consult a workers comp and employment attorney?
You should consult a worker's compensation attorney to deal with the denial. They can still terminate you, they just cannot do it because you filed a worker's comp claim. As in, they cannot retaliate against you for filing the claim. If you were drunk driving forklifts off the loading dock, they...Read more »
I doubt any attorney advertises that they do that sort of thing, so you will just want to call/email some attorneys and ask. Search for ones that do personal injury cases so they know the pitfalls to watch out for.
My mother in law filed a PIP claim against my auto insurance, for an accident I had no involvement in from 11/16. It's is a last ditch effort by her lawyer to get money. She is not written on my policy but did live with us at the time. GEICO has left it in limbo for months and it looks like my... Read more »
