Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am looking forward to assisting you.
While we write back and forth, please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me.
There can also be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be helping other customers or taking a break.
I'm confused. It sounds as though you signed something like a release. Are you wondering if there is a way to get it overturned?
Also, I haven't researched this yet, but isn't there a statute that would prevent a state employee from coming back as a contractor for a certain number of years?
I'll look forward to hearing from you,
Jane Doe Deer
You should use the same attorney - seriously! It sounds like that attorney knows his or her way around the system.
You should find out who it is and pay for a one hour consultation. You can get a whole lot of questions answered in an hour.
I imagine that attorneys in your area charge between $200 - $400 an hour.
I'd be happy to email some more if you have follow-up questions. If not, please click ACCEPT or I will not get paid for helping you.
We can still write after you pay. Feedback and Bonuses are gratefully appreciated.
