I am sure there is. Unfortunately this Q&A site is not the place to ask for an attorney to work for you.

I would suggest you...Read more »
Your question is very difficult to understand.

Hello. So I made a list to help sum things up to allow future questioning if possible. Besides that, these are the main issues I’m curious as to what options I have to take action in perhaps a lawsuit of some sort. Hope to hear back.

Far more would need to be known and understood about your situation to know if there is a meritorious legal claim for discrimination. If you can establish you would have been hired and the only reason you were not hired was your race or national origin, then you might have a claim. Simply being...Read more »

You cannot ask about or even perform a background check to find criminal convictions until after you have made a conditional offer of employment to the employee. At this point, you have already created possible exposure to the company by doing the light background work you have done because you...Read more »

The issue about the number of pay periods has nothing to do with the contracts issue about the status of whatever contract you say you signed. I suggest you contact someone in the district or perhaps your union rep and ask them about your status for next year.

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.

when he flies out to his country in Israel and reenters the usa, will immigration deny him entry due to his profesion? Can they see on record that hes registered with the sheriffs dept. As a legal worker?
No. This could impact him if he files for US citizenship, for which he has to show five years of good moral character. A recent policy change requires a determination of lack of good moral character for people working in even the legal cannabis business.

Racist memes sent about you are clearly inappropriate. Whether they rise to the level of unlawful racial harassment depends on the severity and volume of the inappropriate conduct. Harassment, to be unlawful, has to be severe or pervasive,...Read more »

If your sister can prove she is being pushed out of her job because of her age over 40 years old or some other protected classification of persons, she would have a meritorious legal claim. However the Easter comment discloses no apparent unlawful discrimination, just insensitivity.
