A: I'm sorry your question remains open for four weeks. The attorneys in the Employment Law category would have the best insight into hiring, firing, and other job-related issues. Your question must have gone unnoticed in this category. There's no guarantee all posts are picked up; some questions remain unanswered. You could repost under Employment Law for better chances of a response. Good luck
