Peter N. Munsing's answer Your estate lawyer should have suggested to you that you had that right. Likely it's passed, but why not contact a member of the Ga Trial Lawyers Assn in your county--they give free consults. Look for one that handles workers compensation.
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.
Mitchell Feldman's answer Unfortunately there’s no anti-bullying law. There’s no law that says your employer has to be nice with you and there’s no law that says being mean and nasty is actionable. However when there are specific violations of the minimum-wage or overtime laws changing an editing cards and there’s a complaint there are anti-retaliation sections of both the Florida minimum wage act in the federal wage law the fair labor standards act as well as coverage under the Florida whistleblower act...
Mitchell Feldman's answer As long as your employer paid you and the funds were delivered, I don't see a cause of action to "sue". You need to be paid for your work. If I understand, you had a negative balance account, and the back took the funds and applied to the balance owed. Thus, you have received the funds. IF you did not receive the funds, then you have not been paid and have a right to pursue recovery of the wages.
Mitchell Feldman's answer You are a party to the agreement. I suppose your could file some legal action to obtain a copy, and refusal may be itself a breach of the agreement. However, if you are no longer there, they may be reluctant and have agenda as to why they will not release is, and I've seen this in many cases. Hopefully you have a copy of what you executed, and as long as you performed according to those terms, the agreement may still be enforceable. Either case, I suggest you hire and retain counsel to...
Timur Akpinar's answer Defamation generally requires some form of communication to a third person (someone other than yourself). This can be in the form of spoken words, social media post, email, letter, article, etc. An employment law attorney might be able to provide more meaningful insight about some of the other issues.
Nicole Theodore's answer You should be able to simply reach out to your former employer and ask them to send you copy of your employment contract(s). Once you receive your copy, have it reviewed by a good business/employment law attorney to address if there are any lingering noncompete, non-solicitation clauses to which you may be bound contractually bound.
David Edward Boyle's answer The professor would not face any criminal charges for a consensual sexual act with a person over 16 years of age unless they are a high school teacher and the student is a student at the same school. Same rules do not apply to college aged individuals.
T. Andrew Miller's answer This part of your worker’s compensation claim can get tricky. Worker’s comp should pay benefits if your work restrictions cannot be accommodated, but that’s rarely what happens. Best to consult with a worker’s comp lawyer to fully understand your rights and responsibilities before moving forward. My office offers free consultations.
Michael Richard Moebes' answer I'm a bit confused, as there are several questions here, but they're allowed (and almost always do this) to ask you to resign if you settle the case. If you don't, yes, they can create a light duty job for you to do so you can return there to work and stop getting weekly checks from workers' comp.
John W. Chambers Jr's answer You should consult with an attorney regarding the specific facts of your situation. What you mean by a "liquidation fee" is not clear. Generally, it is possible for parties to a contract to modify or terminate the contract if they agree. An attorney would need to review the terms of your contract to answer your question.
