Q: 

How do I know if I was wrongly terminated?--Q

A:  Probably not, but you didn''t include enough information to say for absolutely certain. A wrongful termination means that it was ILLEGAL for the employer to terminate you for the reason he did. That happens far less frequently than most people suppose. You do not say why your checks have been short and it makes a LOT of difference to the question of whether your termination is wrongful or not. In addition, state law matters. So I can give you more information if you will answer the following: 1.) What reasons have you been given for the short paychecks? 2.) What state are you in? 3.) Who SPECIFICALLY have you talked to about the checks? Your boss? His boss? Anyone outside the company? Here are the

Q: 

So the judge blocked parts of SB1070, what does this now mean?

A:  Judge Bolton did offer Arizona some leeway to make immigration law. She ruled that the law''s purpose - ''to discourage and deter the unlawful entry and presence and economic activity by'' illegal immigrants - is constitutional. ''The Arizona legislature is free to express its viewpoint and intention as it wishes.'' Did you read that everyone----IS CONSTITUTIONAL. This is an injunction until it goes to trial. Nothing has been lost or won at this point. Now AZ and the other states should pass laws that require hard proof of Constitutional qualification for all presidential candidates on the ballot for 2012. Oh wouldn''t it be absolutely delicious for some reporter to...

Q: 

federal forms and laws?

A:  If you want to work, you have to prove eligibility to work and that includes presentation of adequate identification and your social security number is part of that.

Q: 

Different expungement laws for each state

A:  Why should everything be dictated by the federal government, what would be the point of state governments? This belongs on the current events board. BTW, I don't think there is a provision for expunging under federal law now. " There should be one federal law about expungement." Says who? The federal constitution provides that the states have the right to make their own laws in this area. So they do. The fat that this may be inconvenient for convicted felons is not really a good argument to change it. What does fair have to do with it?...

A:  Im all for states Rights , its in the states hands to begin tearing this Tyrannical Fed Government down brick by brick by brick , lets go for it ! I say ''Way to go!'' If a law IS unconstitutional, then they should nullify it. However, it is an unfortunate lengthy process to prove it unconstitutional. But If and when they do, it makes sense to nullify. (If the law is in question, it can be challenged by anyone, who has the resources to eventually bring it to the Supreme Court, which decides constitutionality.) state Nullification of a federal law is just a theory, not a fact.
