Timur Akpinar's answer New York State Empire State Development has a section on its website for government contracting resources. They might be a practical starting point for information about New York statutes and regs. They have offices in New York City, Albany, and Buffalo. On the federal level, the GSA (General Services Administration) might have information regarding government contracts.
Cynthia Pietrucha's answer Sometimes. It depends on the unit of government and what funds they are using to pay for work projects. If an Illinois local government agency is required to advertise their work projects, they are likely required by state law or local ordinance to publish each bid in the newspaper and may also post the bid on the city's website.
If you are looking for available work and don't know where to start, consider resources such as www.bidnet.com and www.illinoisbids.com . You can find a lot...
Timur Akpinar's answer The government encourages small businesses. See https://www.usa.gov/federal-agencies/small-business-administration, which is the website for the Small Business Administration. They provide information and resources for small businesses and maintain field offices in several locations throughout New York State.
Anna Katherine Stone's answer You would need to consult with a local workers' compensation attorney who practices in the state where you worked and were injured on the job. Also, there may be time limitations on when you can file for WC so I would encourage you to reach out to an attorney as quickly as possible. Best wishes.
Kevin Flynn's answer I am not seeing a patent issue here. To the extent that a patented concept has been embedded in a US required standard, then the patent rights necessary to adhere to the standard must be made available in a license to any company that requests it.
Homer P Jordan IV's answer It sounds like you have had communication with her boss. This may be a question to ask him. You may want to consult with an attorney if you are considering divorce so they can help you plan the proper course of action. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
Kevin M Ryan's answer The reverse mortgage lender has a security interest, or “lien,” on the real estate. You may be able to file a Ch 13 Bankruptcy case if you have an expectancy legal interest in the property as a legal heir. You would not be personally liable for the reverse mortgage if you simply surrendered any claim to the property and let the foreclosure sale occur ( unless you signed a personal guaranty or co-signed on the reverse mortgage)
Arthur Calderon's answer It is incredibly hard to get a reduction in the sentence after the judge issues his sentencing order, unless very specific requirements are met. You will likely need to consult with an attorney so that he or she can gather additional information to advise you accordingly.
Dale S. Gribow's answer To properly evaluate any legal question a lawyer needs a thorough summary of the facts. What you have shared is not much. If you are not clear then the lawyer will no doubt be challenged to give an accurate answer.
It is the same as using the adage for using a computer... “JUNK IN, JUNK OUT”.
You clearly have to see a divorce lawyer.......and hopefully one who knows immigration
Patrick Korody's answer Yes. You can be placed on legal hold and held beyond your enlistment to be court-martialed. You should speak to a military law attorney or base defense counsel (ADC, TDS, DSO) ASAP. Your discharge and characterization of service may be at stake, in addition to the possible punishments at court-martial.
N. Munro Merrick's answer You have an attorney. He should be able to answer all your questions. If you have a difference of opinion about whether your psychiatric problems should have been included in the mediation, tell him that. If you are not satisfied with his explanation, tell him that you want to get a second opinion from another attorney. I do not want to speculate any further.
Salim U. Shaikh's answer Employers generally follow retrenchment procedures already in place prior to retrenchment exercise. It may spell out how to deal with staff who lose their contract in terms of absorption within against vacant positions commensurate to their relevance or to pay them termination benefits, gratuity and/or pension factor if so apply.
F. Anthony Bullock's answer If you are unable to work due to a disability, you may be eligible for SSI benefits. Contact your local Social Security office to execute the initial application. Be certain to know what impairments you have, when you were diagnosed, and by doctor/medical facility. Be able to detail why your impairments prevent you from working or earning more income.
Peter Munsing's answer There are procedures to have yourself declared an emancipated minor. Other than those, if the issue is custody a judge looks at what parent is likely to provide for you better, to oversee you better, and frankly to provide discipline better. Your thoughts would be taken into consideration but aren't decisive. Understand if you are emancipated that also means no one has to support you.
Andrew Bennett's answer If you have not yet gotten your reinstatement fees waived you can go online to in.gov and find the information and the forms. If you do not have a computer, then consider the public library.
