There is not enough information provided to allow me to make a reasoned conclusion. You need to provide a lot more detail, such as who, what, where, when and how did the incident happen. Who requires you to identify all the people involved; what requires you to state everything that happened, from beginning to end; where means where did the events take place; and how did the incident happen. Keep it simple and stick to the facts.

Q: If I get fired does the company I work for have to pay me for any accrued vacation

1 Answer | Asked in Employment Discrimination and Employment Law for California on
Answered on Mar 16, 2019
Louis George Fazzi's answer
It seems from what you've said that you don't "earn" the vacation time until after you have worked for one year. This means that the vacation pay doesn't "accrue" until after you have been employed for one full year. In other words, the vacation pay only becomes "vested" (i.e. you have the right to it) once you have worked a full year.

I've seen many instances where an employee is terminated just prior to the vesting of their benefits. Some unscrupulous employers will make up reasons to...

Get yourself another advocate. You have no idea what has happened to your advocate. Maybe she was ill or in an accident. Before you even think about other remedies, find out what you can about your existing advocate, then take the appropriate action.

The short answer is no. You haven't said whether his business was sued or if your wife's grandfather was sued personally. In either event, his creditors cannot satisfy a judgment against anyone but the named defendant against whom they won the judgment, out of his or the judgment debtor's property.

Louis George Fazzi's answer
No, you cannot be kicked out without some kind of legal proceeding first. I suggest you contact a probate lawyer or law firm to find out what rights you may have. The deceased may have made provisions for you in his will, and if so, you need help finding out what your rights are. If there is an estate proceeding to wind up the affairs of the deceased, you can go to the probate court clerk's office and ask for a copy of the will. You will be charged a fee for getting a copy, but then you can...

Q: Why won't local law enforcement make an arrest against someone who violates a restraining order?

1 Answer | Asked in Civil Rights for California on
Answered on Mar 2, 2019
Louis George Fazzi's answer
It is up to you to take the next step to protect your rights. Local law enforcement may not be of immediate assistance to you, so if there are violations of the restraining orders, you must preserve the evidence and go back to the court with that evidence and ask the judge to hold the other party responsible for the violations of the restraining orders. There are other remedies available to you but you must take your evidence and present another request to have the other party either held in...

Contact the local police department, which probably has the contract with the towing company. Explain that you need assistance keeping the peace while you attempt to recover your property. Bring your vehicle registration with you, unless everything proving your ownership is in the car. In that event, notify the police of that fact and request that they accompany you when you go to the towing company to recover your property, letting them know that all your ownership documents are in the car and...
