Selling is not a basis to evict, but the expiration of the lease is a valid basis to evict in VA. If you decide to hire a lawyer to assist with the eviction, I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help. Good luck.
During covid my hours and wage were adjusted, I was told verbally that my hours had been restored and proceeded to work a 40 hour week. My manager approved my time card for 7 months.

If you are an hourly employee you must be paid for all time you spend working for the employer. That is true regardless of what the employer tells you about what hours you are to work. While you can be disciplined and even terminated for working more hours than your employer instructed you to...Read more »
Probably not. You are neither a healthcare worker nor a first responder. Hundreds of thousands of people have contracted this virus which is to say that the likelihood of PROVING your exposure to be work-related is very low.

No. Your landlord is never required to renew your lease, and doesn't need a reason to not renew. Consequently, your tenancy will end at the end of the lease, and you must leave. A non-renewal is not an eviction, so Covid rules are completely irrelevant.
In general Alabama is a right to work state and a person can be fired for almost any reason. It is also likely fine for them to institute this policy for Alabama only. The limitation would be if you are protected under the ADA to avoid receiving the vaccination due to some pre-existing health...Read more »
I'm unvaccinated and was exposed to Covid by a coworker at work. My job is requiring me to quarantine without pay for a minimum of 7 days. Are they allowed to withhold pay from me since I was exposed at work?

A landlord can terminate a month-to month tenancy with 15 days notice (the notice must be a valid written notice delivered according to the requirements of the Lease or statute). Termination of a tenancy is not an eviction, so none of the COVID rules, regulations or pronouncements from on high have...Read more »
No. Information about an employee’s COVID-19 vaccination status is considered confidential medical information under the ADA. Additionally, under Florida law, every employer who provides health insurance benefits "shall maintain the confidentiality of information relating to the medical...Read more »
Yes. Why? Because Florida is an “at will” state, which means private employers are free to hire, promote, demote, suspend, reinstate, fire and rehire employees for any reason at any time, i.e., “at will.” The only thing employers cannot do is make any of these adverse employment decisions...Read more »
You do have a choice, and that is not to work for that employer. Employers have the right to determine the safety rules to assure the ongoing safety of all employees. Employers can require that all employees be vaccinated against Covid19, just the same as when we were all vaccinated as children...Read more »

What you have described may be discrimination; however, not all discriminations are unlawful. Specifically, only discrimination due to your membership in the protected class of people or because you engaged in protected activity are legally actionable. You have not mentioned any facts that...Read more »
Yes. However, if you have a diagnosed disability which a physician says makes you medically ineligible for the vaccine, and you are fired for not being vaccinated, you may have a potential disability discrimination claim, as well as a potential unemployment compensation claim. From what I've...Read more »
Short answer is yes, should they is another question entirely. Many of the norms we typically associate with hospital protocols have been altered by COVID-19. If you suffered an injury as a result of that situation it may be worth contacting an attorney for a private consultation.
Has he completed all his programming? And when and what were his prior incidents? Is he in for a sex offense? It would not be unusual at all for someone in on a CSC to be flopped twice, due to apparently no fault of his own. Additionally, with COVID, a lot of programming just hasn't been...Read more »
I have a medical condition that should be a contraindication to the vaccine; however, my employer disregards this and any other medical condition in their mandate of the vaccine. Should I resign or let them fire me? And do I have any recourse against them for it?
You are in relatively uncharted waters. You may have an interesting case. But your biggest concern now should be what you are going to do to make ends meet between now and whenever your case gets resolved, which could be years.

There is nothing you can do to move the case forward faster. You can, perhaps, help her attorney do so. Her attorney is the only person the court will accept filings from. The Forensic Center is probably not inclined to take directives from you or the attorney.
Our lease is up at the end of August.

We are never more than a month behind in rent. We have 3 school aged children and the landlord... Read more »
