Q: 

Is this authorized?

A:  I noted several posts where the moderators admonished attorneys for including a solicitation within the body of their posts but indicated that it was acceptable to put their information, specialties and availability in their "signatures" and profile. I report any overt solicitations that occur within a post....

Q: 

Are employers with few employees not required to follow the law?

A:  It is possible that the employer may not be subject to the federal Fair Labor Standards Act. But it wouldn''t be because of the small number of employees; that is irrelevant. Here is the criteria for coverage. http://www.dol.gov/esa/regs/compliance/whd/whdfs14.htm And, even if not covered by the FLSA, it''s possible that the employer could be covered under some state laws. What state? Michigan. And, not sure if this business would count as "individual coverage" or not. They do ebay listings--people bring them items and they list them, ship them, etc. for a commission of the selling price. They must do business with people in other states, so I guess that would count? Yes, that is interstate commerce. So, Michigan

Q: 

I need help

A:  You can file a complaint with your state department of labor for any unpaid wages. In Illinois, if you are a W-2 employee and if the employer believes that you owe him money, the employer CAN NOT take the money out of your paycheck, unless you give permission for that or a court gives permission for that. So, your employer can not unilaterally charge you for the stolen item or for the item paid for with a stolen credit card. So, you have to get the wages that the employer owes you, and you have to prevent him from taking money out of your paycheck to pay for the two items. To do that, you could contact the Illinois Labor Department's wage claim section at (312) 793 - 2808. To get more information about the Department, go to the Department's website at...

Q: 

Landlord added parking fee w/o notice--Q

A:  Did your lease address parking or did you folks simply assume free parking was included in this rental? Has there been an issue with all tenants not being able to find enough parking spaces in the parking lot? Can folks park in areas outside the lot (i.e., street parking)? Gail There are adequate parking spots for all of the cars, with at least 5 empty spots at all times. On street parking is a possibility. Here''s a summary of what the lease includes regarding parking: "off street parking is for the primary use of residents vehicle parking. Second cars, trailers, rv''s, boats and guest vehicles are allowed only in designates spaces. All vehicles must be in running condition, licensed and insured. Any vehicle not complying will be towed." It doesn''t...

Q: 

abandoned property? New York laws?--Q

A:  We actually have a complete set of searchable New York law right here at Thelaw.com. http://thelaw.com/ny-law/ Regarding throwing out someone else''s belongings, I don''t think there is specific code on this issue but any action must be reasonable. Here it seems there was already an agreement between the two of you. She agreed to allow you to keep the items in the apartment and you relied upon her representation. This is not a "contract" but a suit in "equity" or what is just and right. It is called the theory of "detrimental reliance." What you were told about New York small claims court is correct. Send the demand notice first. If...

Q: 

Can my ex pulbish information about me on the Internet?

A:  I can't imagine why not, unless you have some sort of confidentiality provision in your settlement agreement/decree ... or he is defaming you (deliberate falsehoods that are causing you damage). If I were you, I'd simply be posting about how the guy is a deadbeat and, quite to the contrary, has expressed no interest in seeing his kids for however long. Meanwhile, I'd be going after him for the child support (or letting child support enforcement do it). Nothing in your posts suggests that he would be legally precluded from doing so. HOWEVER, many divorce decrees include non-disparagement clauses, although those are sometimes limited to comments made to the kids. Also, if he is saying anything FACTUAL (rather than opinion) that is false, and it...

Q: 

What would happen if every single member LLC as the business world have worked?

A:  You need to do more recherches.1. The employees are not individual entrepreneurs. Telling my boss that I am now, LLC will not change how I am paid, or how do I report that the revenu.2. Living expenses are not deductible business expenses. The money for life is the goal of the standard deduction and personal exemption. If personal expenses are deductible, you would have to say the government, which they allow you to deduct. Total loss of freedom. Disadvantages: The LLC eventually pay more taxes as the employees and not eligible for unemployment benefits (self-employment. 15 3% employee not FICA 7th 65%). The IRS will he treat it as an abstract entity ''and tax you as if you were an owner unique.L employer would not be able to exert some control over them for you reclassified employees in....

Q: 

lost job in chapter 13 with home

A:  Unfortunately, Chapter 7 will not do anything to save the home. That is a debt liquidation bankruptcy.  Chapter 13 bankruptcy is the only bankruptcy option to save the home.  You can look to refile the case if it gets dismissed if he gets back to work, or you can refinance to bring the loan current, or you may sell the property.  If you do not want it anymore, then yes, a chapter 7 would be beneficial.  Have him talk to his lawyer, as there are options to possibly defer payments that are due....

Q: 

Modifying a Custody Order When Parent Disappears

A:  I would call your state''s Child Support Enforcement office for advice and options. Your states Child Support Enforcement does not handle custody or modification. They handle child support only. You must file for modification in the Court where the Court order currently is. Example: you originally filed in Texas, you moved to Arizona and petitioned that Court to obtain Jurisdiction , you moved to Pennsylvania...you would have to file in Arizona. So, if you have never petitioned for another state to obtain jurisdiction you must file in the state with Jurisdiction. You do not have to prove abandonment to ask for sole legal and physical custody. Because dad has been involved, even on a crappy level, chances are you wouldn''t have cause (yet). Every state has it''s...
