Mr. Michael O. Stevens' answer You need an employment law attorney, preferably one who has handled these types of claims against strip clubs. However, keep in mind the statute of limitations has limits as to how far back you can get wages back, so act quickly.
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer It's illegal to discriminate based on gender, but I'm not sure I hear evidence relating to that in your question. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself. You can read more about me, my credentials, awards, honors, testimonials, and media appearances/ publications on my law practice website, www.AliEsq.com.

Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer You might have a basis for contesting her fees, e.g., breach of contract by failure to perform her agreed duties. It's key to review the contract and all the related facts. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue.

Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer Employees cannot violate the Intellectual Property rights of the company, including using any company client lists in their own professional pursuits. As for limitations on the non-compete clause, that depends on the facts, e.g., when it was signed, consideration received in exchange, time/ geography limits, and other factors. See: https://www.mass.gov/info-details/massachusetts-law-about-noncompetition-agreements. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The...
Ali Shahrestani, Esq.'s answer Perhaps your father might have a basis for an employment law complaint, but that really depends on the facts leading to his termination. Also it would be useful to know when your remission was cut off - mid year or after the full year, as well as the contractual terms of the remission benefits. More details are necessary to provide a professional analysis of your issue. The best first step is an Initial Consultation with an Attorney such as myself. You can read more about me, my credentials,...
Mitchell Feldman's answer Not enough facts here to provide any basis to believe there is anything unlawful about your termination. As to reverse discrimination, if that's your belief, then you should discuss the facts and information with an attorney and seek legal advice.
Ronald Mahurin's answer It is too late to proceed with a discrimination claim before the WCAB, However, you can still file a claim for WC benefits. The civil statute is longer, so you should be able to proceed with a claim in the civil courts.
Kelli Y Allen's answer From an immigration law standpoint, as long as you are not doing anything to earn the income, you're fine. So you can own property, invest in stocks, etc. but you can't be "working".
Ronald Mahurin's answer Unfortunately this is not a workers comp question. I tried to find a way to flag the questions, but there were no options. You need to post in employment law. There is no remedy in workers comp. for what you have described.
James G. Ahlberg's answer It's hard to give you a solid answer without reviewing the documents you have. I encourage you to have your documents reviewed by a lawyer practicing in the field of employment law (not labor law, which deals with union-management issues, unless you were a union member) to assist you. Employment law covers pretty much everything employee related other than union-management situations.
Charles M. Baron's answer Good question - it's an issue that should be researched to see if it has ever been raised in any court, and if so, the outcome. My educated guess, though, is that a court would not find it to be a violation of the 13th Amendment because the workers are not working for ZERO wages, they're working for POSTPONED wages. But at SOME point, there would be a good argument that postponement for X period of time, with absolutely no end in sight, is the constitutional equivalent of slavery!
Timur Akpinar's answer There could be, but in modern day practice, most law offices are unwilling to take on representation that could carry even the potential for, or appearance of a conflict. If a matter involves multiple plaintiffs and defendants, most offices aren't going to take the chance that a conflict could eventually disappear as a result of a change in circumstances of the interests among multiple parties.
Terrence H Thorgaard's answer You might want to rephrase your question so that it can be understood (Who took what kind of property? Did they take it pursuant to a court order or as a secured party? And what do you mean by "file a seizure of property"?) , and ask it in Justia › Ask a Lawyer › Alabama ›, because it appears to relate to the law of that state.
Cary B. Hall's answer Yes, unless you had some written employment contract which promises you employment for a particular length of time. My guess is that there is no such contract, and so your employer can terminate you "at will."
You would, however, be eligible for unemployment compensation, and you can apply for that online through the Department of Labor and Industry. If you haven't already, I suggest you do so today.
Lucas Wynne's answer Firstly, some noncompete contracts are invalid as a matter of law and not worth the paper they’re written on. Secondly, no attorney can answer this question without actually seeing the contract. If I were you, I would bring the contract to an attorney, pay them a basic fee to review and issue you an opinion.
