I try to keep it short but not leave out important details.

I try to keep it short but not leave out important details. I was working for some guy I found through craigslist doing solar install work. Anyways I end up being his lead or whatever the role was it was never discussed. Basically I ran a crew of installers which they were paid but always late when it came to me he kept telling me that the people who he was subbing out the work to hasnt paid him yet and hes using money from his other project to fund or pay the other employees wages. He telling me we will discuss about my pay next week or later on or whatever. On top of not paying me I was spending money out of my own pocket to buy materials because he lived out in Southern California and at the time i was living in the Bay Area. So I didnt mind buying materals as long as he reimbursed me for them. So everytime we would give me 1 check in the total amount to pay off the guys and to reimburse me on all or partial amounts I have spent out of my pocket on materials and gas and maintenance of the company vehicle. So as the time keeps going, guys come and go due to lack of pay or very late pay sometimes after a whole month of work were they ever paid and me has yet to get paid a dollar for my services. I worked 7 days a week 10 - 15 hour days. I usually had 2 days out of a month off at most. and even on the days off i was working coordinating with the project manager, warehouse manager, and customers to figure best time to get eveything installed and if everything was ready to go and on which date and so on. All that soon comes to an end and I still wasnt paid for almost 4 months of extreme hours of working on top of money spent out of my own pocket which was never reimbursed either of around 8000. So I take it to the labor board and he never appeared once. So I win by default.Time goes by i get awarded the judgement and labor board people ask if i need assistance to collect the money I replied back sure. So they went ahead and did there thing and put up levys and suspended his contracting license until he pays me. So thats when he answered back with his new lawyer stating the judgement be vacated due to improper serving of the papers to notify there was a case involving him. Basically he said he never knew. But thats what makes me upset about this whole thing is I was served to more than 1 location. The papers were served to all businesses that he had partnerships with and also it was served to his many other businesses and addresses he registered under. And also the date that he said he had relocated his business was in beginning of February 2014. But on public records it didnt show he registered to that new address until mid to late 2015. As well as his and his wifes joint business which was registered at an address he was served the papers at as well until August 2016. I filed with the Labor Commissioner Board in March 2015 and got a response in April 2015. Upon doing more research on him he has had and is still going through many other civil cases which most of them ends up with the other party not showing up in the end and a current case hes being sued by one of his business partners. I dont understand, even in his evidence trying to say he paid me shows clearly the email between me and him, and I stated how much he owes me for materials as well as all the weeks up to that point where he hasnt paid me and there were never any objections from him whenever I mention how much he owed me. I also have text messages from other employees complaining about when will they get paid as well as him texting me and forwarding text from other employees with their rage text to him demanding for their pay. All these text which I have saved text messages from my old phone saved in a raw data form saved in an xml type file. File was extracted directly from my old phone and uploaded to my gmail accounts. I actually have many years of text message work related or not uploaded to my emails.So to continue Im doing all this filing myself, I found out the hard way what a tentative ruling was 2 days ago. He filed for motion to set aside judgement do to not receiving notice of hearing. Which he got granted the motion which really confused me because I had spent 2 weeks prior to the date I was informed of studying and researching and gathering evidence so I could argue against it in court to find out I had to object prior to that date, posted online. And this is where im at, is there anything else I need to know or add to this. And which exact forms do I need to fill out for right to attachment, carry out the attachment as well as set a motion for reconsideration. Do I file all these at one time and which forms exactly do I need to fill out? And is there anything else I need to do or know? Oh ya bonding for the attachment process too. Do i get the bond prior to, after, or during the submitting of the rights to attachment, the attchment itself and some sort of affidavit to go with the and reconsideration claims?

My son just turned 18 last month. He has a invalid school ID

My son just turned 18 last month. He has a invalid school ID and a receipt for a state ID he just purchased and should get it in 60 days. An employer just fired him after he started and worked 4 hours saying that his ID was not valid for employment. Surely this can't be right.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MinnesotaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

My employer is currently proposing to change my shift hours

My employer is currently proposing to change my shift hours from 8 to 12. I am in the health care industry and the majority of my co-workers are against this proposal. We are in a union, however I was told that we have no choice but to go with what is being proposed. If we all vote against this proposal, can they still make us go to a 12 hour shift. This will be some life changes and end of careers for some as they are not physically able to do a 12 hour shift.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Sorry, I'm in the state of OregonJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I was hired at 40 hrs per week.
