Hi, I'm Julie. I worked for a company that contracts staff around the country with their home base being in Atlanta and Washington DC. I was hired to work in Texas. I was the sole employee in Texas. Nationally, they have between 25 and 30 employees.
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: I am in Texas, they are in Georgia.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: Yes, the case is currently at federal court. This has been going on since January 2013, and they are offering a pitiful settlement which my attorney has advised we should take. I need a second opinion as I am very sure I have a strong case.
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: To take the settlement which is less than 5% of what we were asking for.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: I was wrongfully terminated after receiving stellar performance reviews, bonuses, and a raise due to inflammatory remarks from a disgruntled manager at the place I was assigned to work.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
