The Fair Labor Standards Act does not require employers to offer a specified amount of hours (or overtime hours) to employees, so employers are free to reduce the hours for your position, and unfortunately, you do not have any legal recourse here.
If you submit the FORM I-485 with USCIS or the DS-260 with the National Visa Center you do not impact your existing J-1 or J-2 status but you will not be eligible to receive the non- immigrant J-1 or J-2 visas again in that you have expressed an intent to immigrate to the U.S.
My partner and I are starting a rally company, an exotic auto enthusiast adventure. We came up with the name Apex Rally, and come up with a great logo. We fell in love with it and could really see the company coming to life in our minds. We just discovered a company in a different state (New York),... Read more »
The answer to your question involves a bit more than name comparison. At least trade channels, zone of natural expansion, and use of the senior mark should also be considered. If you are starting a business, it is a good idea to engage an IP attorney to complete a clearance search for the name and...Read more »

You have a few options here. The first option is to do nothing. It is quite common for an individual to "go by" his or her middle name or a nickname his or her entire life. Just accept the new id with your name as shown on your birth certificate. Your friends can still address you by...Read more »
A New Hampshire attorney could advise best on this, as insurance coverage is generally governed by state specific-elements. But your question remains open for two weeks. The problem with such a legally broad term is that it could be defined in more than one way, depending on the statute and...Read more »
In October a new manager was introduced to my store when the old one moved up. New Manager = NM. Old Manager = OM. NM was disliked from the start due to staring at young, female employees, disregard for personal space, and yelling at the staff. He’s also on thin ice for messing up payroll &... Read more »
Hopefully you kept the tape, or the OM will back up your claim. You should call Human Resources right away. You can file a sexual harassment claim with the Human Rights Commission online and they will perform an investigation. Good Luck!

I just bought gift certificates at a local restaurant and I was charged the tax. When I asked the cashier she said that is how we do it. Now when I give this gift the recipient will also pay tax when they purchase their meals. Double taxing does not seem right.
As a former restaurant owner myself for over 34 years, I have never heard of this practice and we certainly never charged a meals and rooms charge in advance of a purchase. The meals and rooms tax is usually charged at the time the meals and drinks are purchased, and then they can be deducted from...Read more »

Yes, a person can be charged with a DUI as long a police officer believes there is impairment from alcohol or drugs. This is a very subjective decision to charge a person. If you are charged with a DUI you should contact a lawyer that focuses their practice on defending them. I would encourage...Read more »
It would be very difficult to prove that a beneficiary designation was changed due to mental capacity or undue influence. Basically, whichever beneficiary is on the policy is unlikely to be changed after death. A lawyer would need to investigate the facts and case law for a more specific answer.
