A: A Hawaii attorney could advise best, but you await a response for four weeks. One option is to reach out to employment/labor law attorneys to try to arrange a brief, free initial consult. In addition to your own searches, there's a tab above, "Find a Lawyer (which lists attorneys by area of practice and region)," and attorney referral sections of state, local, and sometimes practice-specific bar associations. Those resources are outside this Q & A forum. Good luck
