My neighbors live several cities away and never come to visit their dogs. They have a relative that lives locally and he feeds them maybe once a week if that. We feed them, water them and make sure they have shelter. They breed and they are all related. I have been wanting to get them fixed. I am... Read more »
Both my boyfriend and I no longer worked at a place. He hadn’t worked there for two years. My best friend still works there. The regional director told all of the current employees (some who didn’t even know him) that he committed suicide less than a week after it happened. I do not know how he... Read more »
I am very sorry for your loss. Because this information was not disclosed by the employee to the employer and because your boyfriend was no longer an employee there, the employer would have the same rights to talk about him as anyone else would. There are no special legal duties that would...Read more »
It was a government vehicle he bought at auction and I believe he was supposed to register it in his name first before he sold it to me.but he didn't and I paid him $200 to register and give me my license plates but he still hasn't done it it's been 5 months.
This can get quite expensive for the bad guy here. A lawsuit re: failure to deliver title, can be a problem for the dealer. START by contacting the DMV investigations department and by reaching out to a consumer protection attorney.
My lawyer and claims adjuster made an agreement on a doctor for me to get an AME at a later date. I just recently received paperwork for a QME that was requested by my claims adjuster. The paperwork was postmarked for a recent date, so I know that the request was not an old request. I've contacted... Read more »
Unless you actually attend the AME appointment, the claims adjuster can decide to use a QME. I strongly suggest you wait until you hear from your attorney. It may be there was an assistant working on your file and inadvertently requested a QME. Remember, the QME process has protocols and if they...Read more »
The employer has the legal duty to pay for hours worked, period. While an employer can require an employee to fill out a proper time sheet, it cannot use something like incarceration to avoid paying the money owed. It must use other data to properly pay the employee.
To Whom it may concern, thank you in advance for responding to this message,I need to honestly know,if there is any way,I can track down a living trust, my Dad passed away and because at the time, I was in the US military special ops unit,I was unaware of his passing, once the mission was...

The two of us are currently the only employees of our business, and only took a single paycheck of $100 each to set up the payroll system so it would be in place when we have employees in the future. We have since decided to delay any hiring, and will not be taking any compensation ourselves, for... Read more »
This is a question best answered by your tax accountant. While owners can agree to not take a salary from the business there are tax consequences associated with that decision that you need to measure against the relatively small administrative charges you wish to avoid paying. Get in contact...Read more »
I am sorry but fair or not, there is nothing unlawful about the bank charging a fee to a non-customer for check cashing privileges. You can avoid that charge by using your own bank for your banking. Of course, even your own bank will charge you for certain services. Bank fees are just a fact of...Read more »
I work for an engineering consulting firm in California and have always charged our clients mileage. Recently a client stated that if we charge him mileage, then that makes us an employee and he would be liable in the case of an accident.
He said that this is a California Law. (I can't find... Read more »
No that is not correct. Two parties who enter into a contract can agree on compensation and expenses without turning the relationship in to an employment one. However, the statutory right to mileage is only guaranteed under the Labor Code. That may be what the other person is confused about....Read more »
Lawyer doesn't want to honor our contract because he got 2 cases that would've been profitable tossed out of court by cancelling all depositions. Now he don't want to continue with case against my sister's killer because he knows this person has no assets. But we signed a contract.
My lease clearly says "Tenant agrees to pay $4,250 per month for the term of the Agreement." And, "This Agreement shall terminate on May 31, 2020." Can I fight this? Is there anything I should be aware that he could do if I don't pay the increase?
An attorney would have to look at the lease to form a definitive opinion, but generally a lease for a set time is a contract which can not be unilaterally changed by one of the parties. It's hard to predict what he could do, since it appears he is not being rational in regard to the rent increase....Read more »
A girl went to Human Resources and told them that I left my students alone. (It was for less than a minute ) I was multitasking and my door was open. I was less than 10 feet away. Of course, HR may want to potentionally fire me for this. But my manager already gave me a warning for it. So why am I... Read more »
I am sorry this is happening to you. Far more would need to be known about your situation before you could get reliable advice upon which you can govern your actions. Generally, in California you are considered to be an at will employee and your employer is allowed to discipline or terminate you...Read more »
A friend, who is naïve and mentally-challenged received an auto loan with a principal amount of $3,900 at an interest rate of 47.99% with equally horrendous late charges. To date she has paid over $11,000 on the $3,900 and the lender is requiring $3,500 from her to pay it off. I want them to... Read more »
