Q: 

Is there a law stating that an employer cannot force you to change the colour of your hair?

A:  No, there''s not. employers have a vested interest in the appearance of their employees and have the rights to reasonable rules for personal appearance. They are within their rights to ask you to wear a more "normal" color. If your hair was naturally that color, that would be different, but it''s not, so it''s not. You can always accept the fact that you could be fired for not promoting the company''s policies on proper workplace attire, etc.. You have an alternative to coloring your hair - wearing the hat. Be an adult and make your choice. When you work at a store, you represent that company. They do not want people with hair colors only found in a Crayola box. They have been kind enough to offer you an alternative to coloring your hair back to something...

Q: 

Harrassment? Can you be forced to quit? long..

A:  During these 2 years they constantly badgered me about my hours even though I was a salaried employee who did not have to punch a time clock. Being a salaried employee does not mean you can come and go as you please or not be expected to keep to a strict work schedule.They being the HR lady and her possee which included her daughter, her best friend''s daughter and her ex-nail girl. Hmmm...conflict of interest? That is not a conflict of interest.Anyways, I believe that they had issues with me because I was pregnant shortly after I was hired.

Q: 

I want to know, is there any way to get my passport back from my previous company?

A:  dear, u have no problem at all as long as u havnt signed any document states that u have to pay ur phone bills, secondly ur real problem is baning u from the immigration if ur previous company ddnt give u an NOC then u have to stay out of UAE for 6 months, even if they gave u ur passport today, they will ban u and they will try to open a case but their case is so weak coz they have to evidence proves that u have to pay, so what u have to do now is to either take ur passport and go to ur country and wait there for 6 months and u have nothing to pay anybody, otherwise if ur insisting to go to ur new work u have to convince ur fist job to solve the bill issue and give u an NOC which is highly required to start a new job without getting banned for 6 months coz u havnt completed one year yet in...

Q: 

Help! Is my employer exempted from H1B cap and additional fee?

A:  The cap has not been reached so you can have the employer file for you at any point. As for the exemption, it is not possible to tell this without knowing the specifics about your company. To be on the safe side, you can file with all the fees and if they are not required, they will be refunded. If you want, you can try to do it the other way around, not pay by claiming they are not necessary but if the USCIS determines that they are, they will reject the petition until the proper fees are paid. Please let me know if you have any additional questions or how I can be of further assistance to you in this matter. Thank you, Lana. I actually learned today that my main issue is not about exemption but about how to get my new H1B. Here is my case: Current

Q: 

Can they force you to work 12 days in a row?

A:  If you're a non-exempt employee, you must be paid for all time worked. You're free to file a wage claim with the state. "they can't force me to work that much, can they?" Sure they can. "Isn't there a law regarding the maximum number of days or hours they can make you work?" You're free to contact SC labor department and ask, but I suspect not (at least not unless you're in an occupation that regulates such things, such as a truck driver). "When I told them I didn't want to do that any more they pretty much threatened me w/ my job." They're free to do that. Sounds like you need to look for another job. http://www.llr.state.sc.us/ http://www.scstateho

Q: 

Can I Be forced to Take Child More?

A:  How old is the child? If she asked you to pick the child up 20 minutes later and you wouldn't allow it, then yes, she can file and most likely get that modified.  Most NCP have rotating weekends. It is highly likely it can be modified, but you need to say why you don't want it modified.  If it is modified, visitation is a right, not an obligation.  You don't have to use the visitation if it is given to you. With all the parents fighting for a just a few more minutes of visitation with their children, I have to wonder why you are making a issue of this.  This is not something that should even be going back to court.  Two adults should be able to work it out.  Since you own your restaurant, is there any reason why you...

Q: 

Separated, not divorced. Is it wrong to not allow my husband to take my son 4 hours away?

A:  If you have a piece of paper written where you have ''50/50 shared custody,'' this will not hold up in court if he decides to leave town with your child. LEGAL documentation is needed to do anything or to stop him from taking the child. Get in the courtroom and get a legal parenting plan and custody arrangement set up to protect all of you. That is a HUGE batch of information... Lets see if I can help. From a ''dads'' point of view, it sounds like he is being completely honest about the arrangements, and that is the best he can do. If he can''t take time off of work, that is probably true. You are lucky, your ''baby-daddy'' has a job. YOU wish ONLY the best for your child, but so does dad... He is not going to leave your child with somebody who is a risk, or who he...

Q: 

Is what my boss told me illegal?

A:  the state of WA does not mandate employers pay for vacations, vacations are a benefit and as such can be administered as they please with or with out conditions they also can offer you vacation but they do not have to let you take it, WA also does no recognize vacation as wages earned and again it is up to the employer to pay it or not, and it appears you are back on probation for the next 90 days Let''s say you are correct. Do you want to give more than that 1 week of pay to a lawyer to fight this thing? If you read the manual correctly ( according to what you have written here ) it states that employees will receive...
