Q: 

Can something be done about this?? PLEASE HELP

A:  If they haven't paid her for actual hours worked then she can file a complaint with your state's Wage and Hour division of the Department of Labor. If you are referring to collecting for wages for hours that she was not obligated to work (but think she should have been on the schedule) then she cannot collect those. She is only legally entitled to wages for hours actually worked. The slander claim would be against the employee who made the false accusation. The employer is within their rights to believe the accusation and act accordingly. In order to prove slander though the person who made the accusation would have to know they were intentionally making a false statement. If they merely told the new manager that they thought Susie was stealing but weren't sure then that would...

Q: 

can something be done?

A:  If your contract calls for a lunch period then you are entitled to the lunch period. If the management of the employer will not let you take the lunch, then you have to file a grievance. There should be a grievance procedure in the contract. If you follow the grievance procedure properly (look for the time limits) and the union does not enforce the lunch provision in the contract, then you can file an unfair labor practice charge against your union with the National Labor Relations Board. The union has a duty to represent you during the grievance procedure (if your interpretation of the contract is correct) and failing to properly represent you is an unfair labor practice by the union. Nothing can be done unless you decide to stand up for yourself. If the union is playing games you...

Q: 

Can I Be Sued For Slander Or Libel?

A:  Well it''s doubful she could sue you for slander for the e-mail as slander requires that you "publish" the slander to a third party. Your e-mail only went to her. It could however be harassment, threatening, etc. Your other statements, publicly posted, could be slander depending upon what you said - even if there was no immediate damage you could harm her reputation and she could incur future damages as a result. Shut up, sit tight, and see what happens. And in the future, after you sell something, don''t post your opinions in public about your customers. It''s unprofessional and unethical. She''s your customer. The trailer is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. Your opinion of its value is meaningful only to you. If she can sell a trailer for $1300 more than you can,...

Q: 

Can something be done? South Carolina

A:  I was moved to another department. Can I do anything about this? Be glad you have your job. At this time, the company is making allowances for the girl that lost her child. Be glad that you are no longer working with her. My Step Daughter lost a child a couple of years ago. She was touchy for a good while. The head manager is another matter. You have to keep the peace to keep your job. May not be right, but it is reality. If I were you, I would be extremely careful about voicing "my opinion." Be glad you have your job.

Q: 

Is the moral and Ethical thing to do always the Right thing to do?

A:  What your Brother did were good intentions, but this could have been handled differently. Your brother could have approached your dad first and told him what he was doing was hurting or could possibly hurt not only your mom but the marriage. Most kids at his age are still thinking very logical. In my opinion I don''t believe that children his age really know the concept of what is ethical or not. Most kids at his age still only know to distinguish things by good or bad or right or wrong by a gut feeling but can not rationalize things really well. I don''t put any blame on your brother for trying to do the right thing. On the other hand your parents may have not communicated in a healthy way or even at all, which many times what strains relationsips. Best wishes to you and your family. ...

The bounds/laws regarding a subpoena?

A:  Dear Tensor, The only means of compelling an Ontario defendant to attend examinations for discovery or trial in Ontario in respect of foreign court proceedings is by the issuance of the letters rogatory (letter of request) by the foreign issuing court, which then must be recognized and enforced by an Ontario court. The same applies for an Ontario court to compel a non-resident/non-party to attend an examination for discovery (as a non-party) or trial in Ontario. There are no bilateral agreements for extra-judicial cooperation between Canada and the United States, and Canada is not yet a signatory to the Hague Convention on the Taking of Evidence Abroad in Civil and Commercial Matters (18 March, 1970). The Interprovincial Subpoena Act only applies inter-provincially but not...
