I was diagnosed with PTSD due to military service. I had an incident that triggered all of the symptoms of panic attacks, depression, anger, etc. I notified the company in Nov of 2015, and was terminated in Apr of 2016. They told me if I did not sign all of the documents, basically giving up all my rights to sue them, I would not receive my severance package. Upon hearing what was happening (2 supervisors flew into town to surprise me), I had a panic attack. All I wanted was to leave the situation. I signed the docs and took the severance. I've had time to look over the paperwork now that I'm in a much better mental state, and I would never have signed the docs that agree I can't sue them. They were both made aware of my PTSD and Depression via email to them and the VP of HR. They also fired me just 56 days short of being 100% for 401k and Profit Sharing, those two alone cost me about $40k.
We feel Backyard Leisure is in breach of contract by not
We feel Backyard Leisure is in breach of contract by not starting on pool project in 1/16, not providing what we agreed on, and not allowing arbitration as stated in the contract to work out our differences. Backyard Leisure states we are in breach of contract because we were late on a payment. Here is what happened and we need to know if we should sue for return of money so we can get project completed and repairs done by another contractor.On 9/19/15 we made $1000 deposit to Backyard Leisure to survey our yard for inground pool. On 10/2/15 ***** ***** emailed me with itemization of pool platinum package with pricing which we agreed upon. Email stated they would start construction early 1/16 with favorable weather. We made additional deposit of $5000 10/28/15 agreeing they would start 1/16, and we would make the remainder of the deposit on 1/4/16 of deposit $8725.30 which we did.Continued to be told delays. Spoke with Ryan 1/28/16; he said we were pushed out until March because they were working on two other pools. This was unacceptable to us because we paid a deposit to get on calendar for first of year. They didnt start until 3/28/16 when they delivered backhoe. We questioned workers and they said they didnt work on inground pools in Jan or Feb; they had been installing hot tubs or above ground pools.We met with Alberto on 3/28/16 and he said they would work on shell and grading of our yard for about 2 weeks so we thought we had time to order our money from my husband's pension to make our next scheduled payment.Alberto asked my husband on 3/31/16 to pay $8458.20. We called Ryan and told him we had ordered our money and based on what Alberto told us we thought we had more time. It would take a week. Workers continued with the pool and put in liner. Day they were supposed to put water in pool they walked off job. Money came in mail that day but workers would not return for another week. So, 4/11/16 made $8458.20 payment. They returned on 4/19/16 so made another payment of $8458.20. Workers started concrete around pool.During May, Emailed Ryan about workmanship and problems we were having with mess workers were leaving in our yard. Concrete all over the yard and in pool, and nails and screws in yard. We were having to go behind them and tell them to fix something.I read contract and found out we only got a 1-speed pump; we were supposed to get a 2-speed pump. Sent email on 5/31/16 and said if someone does not come fix pump system we want it replaced. We contracted for 6 ribbon waterfalls and only 4 installed. Ryan said he would give $400 credit if they did not have to install other 2. Contract states 2 skimmers but only installed 1.Told they would begin construction of retaining wall latter part of May. After many calls and emails, they didnt start until June and finished 6/11 leaving rocks in yard and concrete in pool. There is a very large crack running down the wall less than one month after installation.Alberto said after retaining wall was completed his crew would come back and smooth out side walk cement that met up with retaining wall. He never came back.Asked Ryan per contract for arbitration to work out our differences many times. Through all our frustrations we have had appointments broken, workers showing up when not expected, damage done to our property and yard, pool not completed as promised, 2 missing ribbon waterfalls, 1 missing skimmer, wrong pump installed and not working properly, exposed draining piping not buried, and delays causing problems with our other contractors, and many unnecessary 45 minute drives to Backyard Leisure because they will not pick up the phone.We have been making phone calls to Ryan letting him know we have been having more electrical problems with the pump and generator and now the generator has completely shut off. Ryan finally had Alberto come to our house on 9/23 with a 2-speed pump but it was a cheaper ‘knock off' and not the one we agreed upon so we would not let him install it. Alberto agreed we had electrical problems and would let Ryan know. Also showed Alberto concrete issue around pool and cracking in the wall; he said he would let Ryan know about issues. At this time we have shut down pool for season without getting anything resolved.We have balance of $1691.70 with Backyard Leisure. We feel with all that still needs to be done we do not want them back in our yard. We do want 2-speed pump or monies for pump. We feel they owe us monies because we paid over $12,000 for installation they did not do and we didnt get all the services/products we paid for. Not everything was completed and damage was done, and we had to do a lot of the cleanup ourselves because we could not get the contractors back. For 30 day project, it took over 85+ days; we still are not satisfied. We have quote for another contractor that would complete project, not including repair of the retaining wall, for about $6,800.

Ms, I am writing regarding an issue we are having with our
Hello Ms Wilson,I am writing regarding an issue we are having with our moving contractor and MovingClaims.net. We relocated from Atlanta GA to San Jose, CA in April 2016. We hired a moving company. (Our contract includes insurance for lost, destroyed or damaged items of $0.60 per pound).When our household goods were delivered on 4/25/2106, five (5) pieces of furniture were completely destroyed. We filed a claim at MovingClaims.net, including pictures, documentation + weight of the items (4 dressers, 1 Dining table) with 770 lb.The settlement of our claim has been found to be in the amount of $62. After disputing, we have been informed by MovingClaims.net, that US Express Relocation is willing to pay $92 as a “company final offer”.We think this is unacceptable, and they are trying to take advantage.$770 lb. x 0.60 = $462 and this is what we should receive.Therefore, we would like to ask if you would recommend from a lawyer's standpoint to have an attorney send a letter and what the best practices would be and how much this would cost.With best regards,Astrid FeichterJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: We live in California.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: no.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No, I've send my question in my inquiry above.

I have lived in an apartment which is part of the town
Hello, I have lived in an apartment which is part of the town Public Water Works Department, for the past 24 years. My late husband had signed a contract with the town board, which had no expiration date, 50.00 a month in exchange for monitoring water pumps, lawn care and security. I can no longer monitor the pumps, due to an upgrade in the system, and the current board wants me out. My husband and I had spent around 10,000.00 in remodeling, which was also part of the contract. I went to a board meeting tonight, to ask questions, and was bullied by the town attorney. I'm disabled and this is devastating to me. Do you think I have any rights to be able to stay? Thank you for any help.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Yes, Indiana....JA: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?Customer: Just that we take care of the interior, and that the town is responsible for the exterior.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so, thank you.
I'm with Robinhood brokerage. I'm a pattern day trader. On
I'm with Robinhood brokerage. I'm a pattern day trader. On the 4th my account fell below the $25,000 required funding. I deposited $2,000 before I started trading and and additional $2,000 just in case bringing my total well over $25.000. They claim that I have broken the rules to day trading. They required a margin call of $4,600. I immediatly made an additional $5,000 bringing my total to $32,000+ dollars. Without warning they then restricted my account so that I may not buy any stocks for 90 days. Not just day trading. Today, it would not even allow me to sell any of my stock at all. The app just says I'm in PDT violation. None of this is in accordance with the SEC rules of pattern day trading. Don't they have to ablide by the rules? Help please. I need advise
