Q: Can Federal Labor law requiring employers to pay you overtime for mandatory training be waived in a Union Contract

I am a County Employee. As part of our collective bargaining agreement, the county requires us to attend mandatory training on our own time. My question is- can FLSA / Labor Law be negotiated away in a collective bargaining agreement?

You won't get denied just because you don't have an attorney, but you're much more likely to be successful if you have one. That's because an attorney will know what records you need and will argue why you should be considered disabled. However, you will need to get an attorney as soon as the... Read more »

If the WCJ did not appoint a guardian then you have none and you should be cashing your checks, not someone else. Speak to the WC carrier and demand that the checks be sent directly to you. If someone then takes the checks and cashes them, it is a matter for the district attorney.
