Q: 

Can my empl. make me to return to work?I have surgey scheduled? Pennsylvania

A:  My lawyer told me today they can''t leave a verbal message by phone about my having to return to work. He said they have to send something in writing about a return to work status. My questions are: 1) Is my lawyer correct about them having to send something in writing? Your attorney is the person you should be listening to...he know the rules, and your claim. You don''t get or should accept ''legal advise'' from a message board. 2) Who should let my employer know that I''m still too injured to work, no matter what that ''independent'' doctor said, and that I''m scheduled for leg surgery? My lawyer doesn''t seem all that interested in doing this, and I don''t want to contact my employer. Shouldn''t they know surgery...

Q: 

Massachusetts - Can a company offer new hires more hours than those with seniority?

A:  How can they get away with not respecting seniority? There are no State or federal laws that require employers to recognize seniority as it relates to benefits, work assignments, hours, overtime, etc. Do we have any recourse with the union, or somewhere else? (When the union representative has been notified, he insists that it is OK. We think that the union representative is no the side of the employer. How could it be?) The question is whether your collective bargaining agreement has any provisions that require your employer to provide scheduling preferences to the senior employees. No one here can answer that. I am no fan of unions or the concept of seniority, but you have a problem that your shop steward needs to handle....

Q: 

getting ducks in a row By: dunna2

A:  "when I leave I'm taking all things brought into marriage and things I personally bought after, is this ok?" It's ok by me. Whether the court ultimately orders you to return any of them to your husband, or whether you are ultimately required to account to him for half of the value of some of those things is something we can't possibly know. Items you "personally bought" during the marriage probably are marital property. "There are other possesions bought since marriage im giving up but what about debts?" What about them? You can't "give up" debts. "I have always paid my own bills I had prior to marriage, there is only 1 since, which he made purchase of $400 on, how do i get that paid by him?" Seek a court order to that...

Q: 

Low self esteem, I feel like there isn''t anyone for me.?

A:  Start by making a list of all of the things you like about yourself, and taping it up somewhere that you will see it everyday. Then, anytime you think something negative about yourself, replace it with one of the things you have written down. Over time, it will become like a second nature to compliment yourself when feeling down. Find something that you are really good at, and that you feel good about yourself while doing it, then plan events or hanging out around that one thing. For example, say you are really good about bowling and when you bowl you feel awesome about yourself. Invite some people that make you feel GOOD about yourself, to go bowling with you. It is much easier to be confident and more social when you are doing something that makes you feel good about yourself. Also, do...

Q: 

Do You Have to Sign a Tax Form if the Taxes Are Done Electronically?

A:  Quoting BroomsI''m trying to help my son going through a divorce in Iowa. His wife''s (soon to be ex) friend''s father did their income tax this year and last year. He did them electronically. This spring, my son kept saying to his wife that they should be getting their tax refund soon -- and also their tax incentive. She just kept saying yes, they should. Finally, one day when he asked about it, she said they already got them, and she spent them. They went directly into her account. My son said that he never signed any tax forms. Or, anything that would allow it to go into her account. I saw a copy of his tax form (that they got from the person who filed them electronically for them) and there were no signatures on them. I realize these are just copies of what was submitted...

Q: 

How messed up is this? Great Dad trying to get kids back from Grandparents

A:  I can understand that the grandparents are afraid to let the children go as they have a lot invested in raising them to this point. Do you provide any fiancial support right now for your children? Or do you leave all of that up to the grand parents? I suggest you see an attorney who can help you get the custody of the your children back. This could cost you something like $5000 - $15,000. I''m a bit miffed that you are willing give their mother 50% custody with her history. An attorney could help you come up with something reasoable that will protect the children if their mother does not permanently clean up her act. So did you VOLUNTARILY sign over guardianship of the kids to Gramma? Or did a court ORDER you to sign? There''s a huge difference between the two things and the type of...

Q: 

Ebay said Get a court order--Q

A:  You would have to sue ebay for liable in California or in Federal court. It isn''t easy. You could if you want, write a letter to their registered agent and possibly accomplish the goal. I could help you do it but it would be a bear. At this point I figure it is going to cost me $300 a month for a minimum of 6 months so I think I am willing to try anything. What is a registered agent and what do they do? Thanks for your help. The registered agent is your contact person for legal matters with the company. There seems to be something significant missing here though. There must be more information regarding their reason for not removing the derogatory marks after mutual consent. Yah, they said that there policy states there are only two reasons that they will remove feedback and this was...

Q: 

I need a lesson on Judgement and Garnishment..

A:  Probably the quickest and easiest ways of enforcing judgments are wage garnishment and bank account levy. If you are capable of using small claims court in the first place you shouldn't need to use a lawyer or collection agency for wage garnishment or bank account levy. You can obtain information on both topics by looking up CA small claims basics at: http://law.freeadvice.com/resources/smallclaimscourts.htm You can also look up CA Rules of Civil Procedure for more information on judgments and enforcement: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/cgi-bin/calawquery?codesection=ccp&codebody=&hits=20 Beyond those sources, try googling the topic and include California in the search string. "Assuming if i win a...

Q: 

Bottom Feeders are hounding a debt free consumer

A:  I don't see what a police report would do. You're free to go after the original collection agency for selling the known bad info to someone else, I suppose. Might be easier to change your phone number. "...I am getting phone calls from a totally different collection agency...Should I also file a police report..." Yes. The Faiir Credit Reporting Act requires that victims of ID Theft/Fraud submits two items: An "official, valid" report filed..."with an appropriate Federal, State, or local law enforcement agency, including the United States Postal Inspection Service...the filing of which subjects the person...to criminal penalties relating to the filing of false information..." AND a "statement...that the information is...
