He can send you texts, letters and talk to whomever he wants. You can do the same. Unless you signed an NDA, the only thing to worry about is a defamation suit--and the truth of what you say is a complete defense to a defamation claim. If you signed an NDA, have a lawyer review it to determine...Read more »
You will be eligible for expungement 15 years after the end of probation/parole which looks like it will be in 2024. If you received probation before judgment, it can be expungement now.

Since you drive a school bus, you must have a CDL. A probation before judgment is not a conviction, but a probation before judgment for a hit and run can possibly affect your CDL.

We have many 24 hour security cameras at my workplace in most of the rooms and offices. Some are only visual and others also record audio. All are placed in various corners of ceilings so we are aware our boss can monitor us. My office is one of the few that does not have a camera in the room.... Read more »
Sounds like it is time to start looking for employment elsewhere rather than continuing to work in this creepy, untrustworthy surveillance atmosphere. The employer either shows zero faith or trust in his employees' honesty or is some kind of pathetic voyeur. Surveillance makes sense for...Read more »

I completed everything and filled out the offer letter. I was supposed to start and then they decided to go a different way with no warning at all. Can they do that even after I filled out an offer letter and ALL employment documentation?
Until you have a signed and binding contract, you have nothing to sue upon. Therefore, if you have paperwork that you believe makes a binding contract, then take it to an employment lawyer to review. It is not possible to guess what agreement exists, if any, between you and the company....Read more »

Generally, absent the employer's request to limit the time frame, it will go all the way back to as early as records exist. 2010 is not that long ago, generally speaking, but many employers discount of ignore offenses older than 10 years, expecially minor marijuana charges.

Employer didnt find me a project for 5 months. He didnt pay me salary and is asking me to pay for the one month salary paid during the no work period, H1B transfer. He is threatening to collect it from my reference person incase I fail to pay.
Well, this seems like a questionable action, but you appear to have fallen out of status. This appears to be a less than bona fide employer. There is outstanding salary that you are entitled to, but you will have to file a complaint with the Department of Labor.

Employers can also change their paid time off policy if they choose, so...Read more »
