Q: 

What if someone writes your employer accusing you of slander, but the person never discussed it with you?

A:  If the company does anything, they open themselves up to extreme legal liability. Based solely on the word of another person, they had best do nothing, other than to tell you about it. Proof, director, proof that will stand up in court. Word of mouth is not proof. The accuser needs witnesses, and then those witnesses will have to stand before a judge, and if possible, a jury to be examined as to the validity of their claim against you. Now, if the accuser is trying to intimidate you by making accusations to your employer, then you have grounds to counter this by a charge of harassment against the accuser. Not just the harassment charge, but slander as well. Please remember that the law is NOT one sided. Both sides...

Q: 

Q&A: You go to a nice restaurant & find a roach in your food..You inform management that you''ll be suing.?

A:  If you win the lawsuit, you''ll be paying tons of money in court costs and lawyer''s fees. What you end up getting is nowhere near the 100 grand. If your purpose is to put the business out of business, then proceed with the suit. If your purpose is to seek recompense for the nasty bug, then take the money. you won''t be offered $100,000. nowhere near it. If someone offered me 100 grand for that, of course I''d take it. They''d just "offer" you $100,000.00? In what dream world do you live in? That would never happen. They''d let you sue, hope you lose and let the chips fall where they may. And the settlement wouldn''t be near the 100 grand you dream of. If you think suing businesses is some form of get rich quick scheme, think...

Q: 

How can you stay in US without a citizenship for a long time?

A:  You can attend college in the United States on a student visa. That would last you years. After you get your degree you can find a US employer to sponsor you for immigration, or, you might fall in love with an American guy, get married, and stay that way after college. You have to legally obtain Permanent Resident status (green card) first and maintain PR status for 5 years to be eligible for US Citizenship. To obtain green card, you must have a sponsor who has to petition you for the green card. A sponsor must be either immediate family member, such as parent, spouse, sibling or your own US Citizen child or US employer. Unless you have a sponsor, you cannot get green card. You just cannot stay at your friend''s house to live in US. You...

Q: 

If you quit your job and move to another state can you collect unemployment?

A:  yes you can.. my son says AZ is the most beautiful state.. my niece moved from North Carolina 2 West Virginia and she did the same quit her job 2 move and she''s aloud 2 collect unemployment.. You can not collect unemployment if you voluntarily quit your job. You can even call the MI unemployment office to verify this. In order to collect you would have needed to be laid off or fired or left due to medical reasons. You always collect from the state in which you worked even if you have moved out of state. Try to get a temp job for the next 5 weeks until your training starts. Generally if you quit you do not get unemployment since you voluntarily left your employment. Sorry, but another thing... I hope you kept track of all your moving expenses, those are tax deductible on your taxes when...

Q: 

Several of my payroll checks have been returned NSF. What legal action can I take against my employer?

A:  This large company has your pay cheques bouncing..holy crow!!! I strongly suggest seeing a lawyer.I don''t know if you have an office there for the Labor Board,but if you do,call them.. You could sue them, but it sounds like they won''t have the money to pay whatever the judgement is. In Pennsylvania if the amount is over $500 it is a crimal offense to write bad checks. First, you need to send a letter to you emplyer giving him the opportunity to make good on his dept within a certain amount of time. Make sure you include any overdraft fees caused be his bad checks in the amount.You would need to go to the police in the district the check was GIVEN to you. They will contact your employer to appear in court over the matter. No lawyer is needed on your side!!!! Turn...

Q: 

Can you get turned down for unemployment for losing your job too many times?

A:  No, but you do have a limit on the amount of unemployment you can get in a one-year period. Check with your state agency to determine the amount. No......but you will have to reapply........your benefit year will have to be determined.........I just retired........used unemploymentt many times.....over my 40 year engineering career......only one company is left standing........interesting..........I managed to save 25% of everyting I made........living on the beach and not a care in the world.........

Q: 

Can I file a civil lawsuit for this?

A:  Ditto to the first answer. You have a case... take him to Small Claims Court. You might have a case... make sure you keep a copy of the ad for evidence (e.g. print it) and get a mechanic to verify that the engine has a problem. You might also need an expert opinion on how much the jet ski is worth in that condition vs what you should get for $700. You should be able to sue to get your money back as it sounds like he has misrepresented the condition of the jet ski. On the other hand, if the problem is obvious from looking at it, you might not have a case because you should have properly inspected the jet ski before paying. First, no one goes to court over ''the principle of the thing.'' It''s gotta be about the money and the money must be sufficient to justify the time and expense and...

Q: 

Can your work say No to time off for a docs appointment?

A:  Unfortunately sweetie, unless its life or death- employers simply dont want to hear any B/S about what ur troubles are. They only care about when and how long it will take for u to finish ur current job assignment. Its sad but true- but if u end up taking the time out, by trying to say ur sick now after showing ur boss ur letter and appt time and date, they will likely fire u hun... I dont want to get u all nervous but if he said NO! plain out, then I would be careful... If u need it done then go and do it, just realize u may risk ur job and they can do that legally. Definately too if u took alot of time off in the past two months.... If your toe is so badly damaged then go off sick and see the doctor then.....thats what sick leave is for....

Q: 

If you get fired from your job, how does unemploym comp work? Can you be deinied? What if its your 1st time?

A:  The way it works in California is that you file a claim for unemployment, the unemployment office contacts the employer informing the employer of what they have to contribute to your unemployment pay. Your employer can contest your claim by saying you were fired for cause (like stealing the inventory or being drunk on the job or diddling the front desk girl). The unemployment office then evaluates whether your claim is payable or not. If they just fired you, "at will", no particular reason or maybe they just didn''t need you anymore, then you get unemployment. It actually works in your favor. You would have had to do something really bad for them to deny you your unemployment benefits. Tardiness or poor...
