Your rights will be governed by the employment contract as to the non-compete and time off. You cannot offset your claims against earned salary, or you will subject yourself to labor violations. You need a court case to determine your rights.
In the PDF you see the signed contract and a copy of the passport of each actor. The originals are non-existing (paperless office). Would my PDF document/scan suffice in the court of law in the US should that be necessary one day?
It could depend on the court system.

Digital files are commonly used in discovery exchanges, but it would probably be advisable to...Read more »
I recently noticed a collection account from PRA on my credit report. I've never heard of them, but the amount owed was similar to the amount I owe a bank. I never received anything from PRA though, so I opened all my recent mail that I thought was junk.

My Etsy shop was closed because of said infringement. I have been selling the items for 4 years with no issues. There are numerous other sellers selling the exact same items. Why am I being singled out?

The terms of the contract would govern your transaction. If the contract identifies that dog and that is the dog the person bargained for, then that dog is the one the person is entitled to.

I should have gotten a lawyer to represent my interests at the time, but our co-homeowner agreement seems very lopsided now.
