PS. Where to find authority on: "purpose of a law" ?

In the case that the minority dilema was not freely chosen, but resulted from an incompetent [proved because his Will needed and got several rectifications for errors] testator, can one expect a sensible court to realise that the "free choice" reason doesn''t apply ? Foss and Harbottle is a good case on which to hang a bit of a rant on "the purpose of

Q: 

Is it legal to not give a break/lunch to employees working 9.5 hours a day?

A:  Straight from Iowa''s Workforce Development web site: Iowa law does not require that employers give employees a lunch or rest break unless certain conditions exist (they are under the age of 16, there is a union contract or some other employment agreement that promises such breaks, they work in a specific profession, such as truck drivers or airline pilots). If an employer does elect to provide a lunch or rest breaks, and many employers do recognize that employees need such a break, an employer may require that an employee remain on the business premises during the break, regardless if the break is paid or unpaid. Iowa Workforce Development So, the practice of your employer is legal. Not that I would want to work there. Federal law

Q: 

Oklahoma Employment at Will & Pregnancy - Wrongfully terminated?

A:  If the boss gets fed up with your "verbal altercations" and fires you for them, no, that is not a wrongful termination.

Insubordination is a legal reason to term you, so the evidence that he *really* fired you because of your pregnancy is going to have to be pretty strong. Contact an attorney see if you have cause for pregnancy discrimination. JoeC How many employees are there? Have other employees gone on...

Q: 

Alabama state labor Law - Doctor's note/Medical Leave?

A:  I live in California and they must accept doctors excuses, it is against the labor law to not accept them. I did a web search for Alabama and found the site for you to contact someone about this. There are a lot of facets to your question that can''t fully be answered in this forum. To make it simple, your employer has the right to terminate your employment if you are absent without benefit of leave. They are trying to run a business. As an employee you are expected to be there and work your schedule. Who fills in when you aren''t there. If you have exhausted all of your available vacation or sick time and still need to be out you will need to be on some type of leave of absence such as short term disability or long term disability. Most companies, including...

To Whom does US Individual Income Tax Apply?

A:  Yeah, it''s a big conspiracy amongst the nearly 1,000,000 lawyers in the U.S. and the thousands of judges. Shhh! don''t let the secret out! I think H&R Block is in on it too!
