Hi I'm a restaurant owner of a few locations in New Mexico. I have been in business for about 5 years now and today we summoned with some paperwork stating that an old employee is suing for unpaid wages and discrimination. This employee is the type that makes it a career to live off the government and law suits I gathered this after several conversations with him. He got let go do to a shitty attitude and not being able manage a kitchen as the kitchen manager of one of my locations. His claims are for unpaid wages of worked time over 40 hours and hes also trying to involve others that have been or are employed with me. None of this is true but I understand what matters is what can be proven in court.What can I expect here, how do I know what the total pay out will be if I lose, and what can I counter sue with? I'm certain he has fabriced this entire deal.

I'm a former litigator (commercial/securities lit) who

Hi,I'm a former litigator (commercial/securities lit) who turned to academia and am a bit rusty, but I have a very easy question for an employment attorney that has arbitrated academic non-reappointment or promotion denial cases. All I really need to know is how to access the AAA's database and be able to search for arbitration awards issued in these kinds of cases. Is this type of thing only available on Westlaw (which I no longer have access to), or can I get it from an AAA database? When I went to the AAA site, it allows only very limited Class Arbitration cases and I cannot find a large academic database.Any help is appreciated!Jeff

I just don't know if this is how these things are normally done, or if the settlement terms are reasonable.
