V. Jonas Urba's answer Have you asked your union, assuming you belong to one? Your union contract protects everyone. It's called a collective agreement for a reason.
If you have no union and you continue working for the lower pay have you ratified that? Meaning agreed to it?
If you have no written, signed contract of employment, privately, and are paid above minimum wage and overtime what would your cause of action be? Consult employment lawyers to review your documents including the above issues.
Jonathan David Warner's answer Under some circumstances, the answer is "yes" - but only with respect to child support, income taxes, criminal restitution, or Social Security overpayments. Give them a call and ask them about it - they'll at least be able to let you know to whom the debt is owed. There have been circumstances where I've been able to negotiate a release of the garnishment, based upon a debtor's financial hardship.
Consult with an attorney in your area regarding this matter.
Aubrey Claudius Galloway's answer It depends on the jurisdiction, but pleading guilty could affect immigration status and any judge will tell this to a defendant prior to a plea. In general, these cases are criminal if the person has a “guilty mind” meaning that they knew the license and our registration was expired; if they had no knowledge it is the VTL509 violation which is not a criminal offense.
Criminal law is my primary area practice and, although our prices are very reasonable at $180 an hour for...
To answer your question, yes, you can most certainly send a letter to the judge and the district attorney. In fact, you could even call the district attorney, or the assistant district attorney assigned to the case, and ask to meet with her. It is very possible she may meet with you and you could address the concerns you have. At the same time, uou may want to be careful because, depending on the ada, you could bring your daughter...
Michael David Siegel's answer Not responsible for taxes. You cannot get rent unless the lease says you can collect. The whole thing is weird though, and the reason for the transfers could be an issue for income and gift taxes.
Michael David Siegel's answer This could be a fraud, so double check. You are responsible for any tax. Withholding is a prepayment, not a tax, which you calculate when you file. If $1000 is the issue, you are probably going to have to pay it.
James Francis Barna Esq's answer This is a very broad question that can be answered in many ways, but broadly in New York there is legislation (the Taylor Law) that sets up a system of procedures and protections for public sector employers and employees. Under this system, employees have to serve a probationary period after they are hired, but after that probationary period, most employees are protected by "just cause" job protections. That is, the employer must have an objectively good reason to terminate an employee, which...
Michael David Siegel's answer Name changes are meant to be done yourself, i.e. DIY or pro se. The clerk in Civil Court in the Bronx (assuming that is where your mother lives) has the forms. It is easy.
Kevin L Dixler's answer First, are you a lawful permanent resident? Second, are you studying to become a diplomat? No, just kidding! It is a "naturalization" test. In general, if you were lawfully admitted/adjusted as a lawful permanent resident 'before' your 18th Birthday 'and' your mother became a Citizen 'before' your 18th Birthday, then you should derive Citizenship. Therefore, there is no need to file for naturalization and take the tests. However, you must file form N-600, not N-400, and must provide...
