My 17 year old son is working this summer for a company that allows him to drive a company pick up. He was involved in an accident and caused damage to the company truck and another vehicle. His boss told him he was responsible to pay the insurance deductible. My son signed initial documents when hired but doe snot remember signing a document that says he agreed to pay for any damage. Is that legal? In addition, he is a minor and neither my husband or I were present to witness anything he signed.

is there a missouri statue stating that a adult has to work

is there a missouri statue stating that a adult has to work in a place of business with a 10 year old child i was working in a grooming shop and a lady that went to a grooming school came to work in the grooming shop and the owner has let the lady and her 10 year old child come with her everyday. the 10 year was bathing and grooming on dogs and I felt this was to much of a liability. I was the office manager at this shop as well as a groomer. i left in december. I just want to know if there is a mo statue stating i do not have to be forced to work with a 10 year old what are my rights.

Hi, thank you for taking the time to read over my questions.

Hi, thank you for taking the time to read over my questions. I'm currently 20 and am a resident of Tennessee. When I was 15 years old, I was employed by a pizza parlor. I had an accident one day when I was loading onions into an industrial vegetable dicer and another employee activated the machine, smashing my fingers. To this day I have scars and dulled sensation in my right middle finger. I just recently discovered that it was illegal under Tennessee child labor laws for me to be using that machine. I also just found out that when my employer paid my medical bills they gave my parents cash and avoided going through their insurance. I also foolishly expected to regain complete sensation, of which I haven't.Do I have any right to compensation? I was a minor at the time and didn't have the power to bring legal actions against my employer as my parents brushed it under the rug. I'm afraid that the statute of limitations is up, but I had no idea what my rights were in this and had no clue that had so blatantly disregarded the law and then weaseled around it.

My wife worked for Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10137. She

My wife worked for Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10137. She started 4 years ago as a Bartender, shortly thereafter she was given the head Bartenders job. She did all the ordering for the bar,keep the inventory, directed 3 other bartenders, in the 3 years, she never missed a days work and in 3 years never took a vacation. A lot of weeks she worked more than 40 hours but didn't recieve any overtime. As head bartender she recieved a $50. dollar a week addition to her hourly wage. She HAS NOT, ever recieved a written or verbal complain made agaist her. She worked the 14th of November 2012, Nothing was said to her. On the 14th of November at approx. 8P.M. we were enjoying TV when the Phone rang. Mike Mauldimg, the head of the house committee, said to my waie,"are you sitting down." She said,"yes" Mike said, "we had a meeting and have decided to let you go." She said "why." and he said, "we had several complaints against you." She got a check for 19 hours of work, and $1.10 toward her $50.00. I believe she is entitled to an explaination, and therest of her pay for overtime worked and the $50 dollars.

We are a not for profit private racquets/swim/tennis club.

We are a not for profit private racquets/swim/tennis club. For six weeks each summer we conduct a day camp for the children of our members. We understand that some competeing camps allow young people (under age) to act as "counselors in training" or "CITS". This is an unpaid position. CITS work with the regular (paid) counselors and are willing to do this to gain experience that will be helpful in the future when they apply for real counselor positons.We would like to offer some CIT positions. Is this allowed under the child Labor Laws?

My 20 year old daughter left my home and has been spreading

My 20 year old daughter left my home and has been spreading lies about me and my parenting because she is angry and resentful! She has been at a friends house and after a week of listening to her lies and bitterness they called child protection services to sat that I was neglecting and using the kids for child labor ie .. Excessive chores etc... After talking with my children at school and myself the case was closed as having no merit! But my question is this, my daughter was adopted from Haiti 5 years ago and really would have no knowledge of such an agency, so I know this harassment was at the hands of the women she has been staying with! What are my rights? I would at least like to send a strong worded letter to both my daughter and the women that states she needs to stop maligning my good name and spreading lies or I will sue her for slander! I have 6 other children ( 3 of them her adopted siblings still in the home) and the lies and gossip are starting to get back to them!
