Q: 

calculate child support w commissions

A:  Commissions generally take time to accumulate. Sales is a process and depending on the job, it is unlikely someone starts a job and the big money rolls in immed. I do outbound sales and I work off of a base +comm myself. How do you know what somebody made in the office last year? . Out of about 150 sales rep, we have a handful that make well over 100k but the average salary with my company is about 400-60k. I would not want my CS based off of somebody's unusually high paycheck which I don't earn. So if it takes him at least 6 months to really start making any commissions, do you actually think he should pay higher CS even though he is not making that? I am not sure you should be calling his boss. It is hard to predict what he will make. I am sure he has quotas and if he makes...

Q: 

New York State - Certified Birth, Death, Marriage

A:  "Do I need to contact a New York attorney to get a court order?" Well, if the records office is correct, unless you know how to work the NY system, I would presume, yes, you'd need an attorney. "If so, what type of attorney?" Family law. Did you contact the city-county where the deaths-births occurred to see if you can get through them? By the way, the application I saw said that the "lawful right or claim must be documented" by way of a "court order **or** an official letter verifying that a copy of the requested death record is required from the applicant in order to process a claim." So ... I'd send 'em along with the application...

Q: 

CA Pregnancy Discrimination? California

A:  The company is making a ton of mistakes, and you are protected. You have up to 4 months of Pregnancy Disability leave, and you are allowed to use it intermittently. You can work half time for eight months, and your job will still be protected. They cannot refuse to give you a raise because other women haven''t come back from maternity leave. In the meantime, write a letter to your HR department, letting them know that you feel you are being harassed and discriminated against due to your pregnancy, and keep a copy for yourself, and a copy for the DFEH to take to your interview. It''s the owner and the head of the HR of the company that has done this with the benefits to me. If I write a letter, I''m worried that it will cause more problems. Can they retaliate (spelling?) against me for...

Q: 

found my job onlive :(

A:  Millions of people commute between SI and NJ. My brother drives 1 1/2 hrs each way from Pawling NY to the South Bronx. You will not get unemployment if you quit. Find another job first.     How do you know it was 'your' job that was posted?   "I want to know what can i do? i feel trapped." We can't tell you what you should do other than suggest you start looking for employment whereby you don't have a long commute. No,  you can't collect  unemployment insurance if you quit your job. If you are unemployed through no fault of your own, it’s likely you will be eligible for benefits. If you were fired, that does not mean you are ineligible. A hearing officer will conduct an investigation and decide whether benefits...

Q: 

wont give me a raise ! discrimination? Illinois

A:  It''s almost positive that if you quit because you haven''t gotten a raise, you will NOT get unemployment benefits. UI is meant for people who lose their jobs through no (disqualifying) fault of their own; not for people who aren''t happy with their pay rate. Have you put together a list of the reasons you think you should get a raise (and no, the fact that new employees have been hired at a higher rate is not an argument that should be used)? Asked to speak with the manager about why you think you deserve one? So, on what basis DO you think they are discriminating against you? If I understood your sentence, you don''t think it''s based on your race (whatever it is). I agree with Pattymd! You will surely not get unemployment, if you get fired. I would do as she asks, and without saying you...

Q: 

Been In U.S. Since Baby By: Karina Landin

A:  Was your biological father a US citizen at the time of your birth? Were he and your mother married to each other at the time of your birth or a few months before your birth? Did your biological father sign any document acknowledging that you are his daughter? Did your mother marry a US citizen? Were you adopted by a US citizen? Did your mother gain US citizenship while you were under 18? If you answer "yes" to any of these questions, you should explore whether you were born a US citizen or had acquired US citizenship. Was or is your husband's service in a war zone? If yes, you may want to explore whether INA Sec. 319(b) applies to you. The text of that statute is available through www.uscis.gov . My understanding is that if...

Q: 

being fired and denied unemployment--Q

A:  i have not been to my unemployment appeals hearing yet, but would the other employee give a written, notarized statement on your behalf... maybe not if they have her scared for her job, but that is something i would suggest I didn''t think anyone was going to respond, so thank you for writing back. I dont think she would sign anything now as the boss is threatening her job too. I watched 8 other employees get fired one after the other for trying to stand up for the unfair work conditions there. I thought if i recorded our conversation, technically, she wouldnt be testifying against the boss. I WOULD! Maybe this would alleviate the pressure off her. I am in a very bad position financially, and wont be able to not only pay the bills, we wont have money to eat...

Q: 

Still have ex-roommate''s furniture and things.--Q

A:  She doesn''t pay her rent, why do you think she''ll pay storage fees? You need to get this person out of your life. Send a letter to her last known address. Tell her she has 30 days to make arrangements to claim her property. See the box below! Just get her to reclaim her junk. She didn''t pay you, she won''t pay you. One final thought on this mess. I don''t think that what the landlord told you to do, to sign her off the lease is legal. You and he should hope she doesn''t think too hard about the way it went down. If she wises up, she could sue you both. That is why I suggest you let her get her junk. This could cause you more trouble and money than you imagine. She should have been evicted, not signed off the lease. That can only be done with her permission. Q: What can I do...

Q: 

Tenant breaking a commercial lease

A:  "At the end of April he quit showing up, turned off his cell phone. We tried contacting his several times." I trust you *wrote* to him as well. "He told me we could sell all of his stuff and keep the money." You will want that in writing. This is more a matter of judgment collection than a lease-rental agreement issue. "As of today the tenant has filed with the courts "vacating the order of judgement" and ordering a new trial." You mean he's filed a request-motion with the court to vacate the judgment; he can't order a new trial on his own. "What else can I do...." You file an objection to his motion, citing your conversations about his saying that a friend told him not to show up....

Q: 

Broken rental contract

A:  I don't know if its too late now but I'd report the theft to the police of the microwave. Please tell us you kept her deposit and notified her in writing why she wasn't receiving it back. "The contract says that she needs to give us 45 days notice to terminate her contract...." Er, not only that, but a requirement to provide advance notice of move-out doesn't mean she's not obligated to pay rent until you re-rent the place ... or does your lease have some whacky language that either party can terminate without penalty on 45 days notice? (And, if so, why the long lease term vs. month-to-month?) "In addition to this, she also stole our counter microwave and left 1/2 the garage full of garbage." I trust you filed a police report about the petty...
