I work for a company that has recently decided to do away

I work for a company that has recently decided to do away with positions in the hospital. This will affect four employees total. Three of which have already been told about their position either changing or being done away with all together. One employee has not been told at all. This position will no longer be valid effective January 29, 2017. Our manager informs this one employee that she needs to stop asking questions about her job and badgering employees trying to find out if she will have a job at all in the coming weeks.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: What is the time frame in which an employer must let their employee know that their job has been eliminated? As it stands this employee will find out Monday afternoon that she will no longer have a job effective the following Sunday.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I'm sorry, I live in Arizona.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: As of right now, this employee has not reported anything to the CNO. I am her clinical supervisor and I am trying to help her in anyway I can.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Apparently this employee is in corrective action of some sort. Not sure what it is or if it has anything to do with the decision that the manager is making about not telling her.

This is a question in regards to the 5th amendment rights,

This is a question in regards ***** ***** 5th amendment rights, the so called "Miranda Rights ": whenever a law enforcement officer intends to interrogate a suspect in relation to a possible crime, is it imperative that before starting such interrogation the very first thing this officer must do is to read those rights to the suspect?. Furthermore, if the officer instead first tells the suspect that "he is to declare under oath and that anything he says which is later proved to be a lie, could be punished by up to one year in prison" and then proceeds to read his Miranda Rights, doesn't that constitute an illegal coercion by which a citizen is subtly threatened to declare something before telling him about his right to remain silent and to have an attorney at his side before saying anything to the law enforcers?.

Hello,I live in California and would like a friend of mine (who is a licensed CA attorney) to help me draft a will. Is there anything HE can do specifically for me as an attorney, OR do I still have to follow all of the will provisions (like having two uninterested witnesses, etc.)? Just wondering what he can do, if anything, to help this process as an attorney. Thank you.
