The format of this board could make it difficult for an attorney to contact you. This is more a question and answer board than a referral service - if you want to hire an attorney or arrange a consult, you could reach out to the attorneys here (Find-a-Lawyer tab above), or ones you find in your own...Read more »
Your question remains open for two weeks - there's no guarantee that all questions are picked up. But you could try reposting under Employment Law, where you might have better chances of an attorney who deals with these types of situations seeing your question. This looks like it's more...Read more »
I am interested to know if someone can apply for teacher certification for me in all 50 states. I have an Advanced Professional Certificate in Two Subject Areas, and an Administrator Credential. I have 15 years of teaching experience, could someone do this? If so could you give a rough time... Read more »
Why do you want to pay a lawyer to do something you could accomplish on your own? It doesn't require legal skills to apply for teacher certification. Given your credentials, you are clearly bright enough to deal with the process. But if you wish to have a lawyer handle it for you, you could...Read more »
I work in a house with 3 individuals who reside there. I work overnight so they are sleeping in there rooms. Head nurse wants all staff to wear masks. Due to my religious believes I cannot wear one. What do I do?
I don't know. If I were a patient and you refused to wear a mask and I got sick there would probably be a big lawsuit. If you are not staying at least 6 feet away FROM EVERYONE except those you live with you are endangering other people's lives. Does your religion allow you to do that and...Read more »
All my belongings still remain bec I can't get help to move due to State quarantine. Stuck sleeping in my car instead of my apt with my belongings. Landlord can't rent to anyone else during Covid-19 State of Emergency anyways. ***I'm located in Saratoga County, not NYC
You should first contact the landlord. If that doesn't work you can go to the local courts (I am not sure what Court in Saratoga handles housing matters) and file an order to show cause requesting post eviction relief. It is 100% up to the judge whether to let you re-enter.
It could be in more than one place under NYS laws, NYS Constitution, executive orders, emergency legislation emerging as the crisis evolves, or other powers granted or reserved to the offices of all governors in times of emergency. Good luck
It could depend on the context. If the organization alleged that such use adversely impacted its reputation or other interests, it could object to the use or bring legal action. There's no way to predict what an organization would do. One option is to consult with an attorney familiar with the...Read more »
This sounds like something that an employment attorney might be more likely to know than attorneys in the posted categories - if there is a possibility the issue is addressed in a collective bargaining agreement or other employment-related contract. Municipal or administrative laws might not go...Read more »
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?
I am currently on PTR and my lawyer is recommending a safety valve meeting. I only have a misdemeanor poss. In the 7th on my record and wpuld like to know since I only have less then 60 days in jail on that charge, will I have the option to do 0-6 months in jail since I only have 1 Point?
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...Read more »
I pawned my stereo for $125 with the understanding that I would be back to pick it up within 7 days. I called on the 4 day and was told it got sold a few days prior. He not only broke out deal, but he broke state law by selling the item before the 5 day minimum wait time. I have a witness to the... Read more »
The amount of money involved is way too small to be of interest to most lawyers. FYI, the law is not designed to solve every little problem that comes your way during this lifetime; the Latin phrase for this rule is "De minimus non curat lex."
Wondering of rights as resident. Called town and being told keep kids out of road. Not addressing the law breaking of residents. Put slow down structure at foot of driveway. What else can I do to stop a child from being killed. What are the children's rights.
Petition the local city council or whatever form of government you have for placement of a speed limit sign etc. However kids should not be riding bikes on roadways unless they are fully competent, have helmets on etc. We lived on a road like that and that's one of the reasons we moved--no...Read more »
I was told (not in writing) that I would be getting two $2 raises ($16 to $18 to $20 per hour), but it's been over two years and they never gave me either raise. What law for NYC or NYS says this is not allowed, and where can I find that law to show my employer?
