Should we fired him? Or what other recourse I can take. He passed other drug tests in the past. I don't have nobody to replace him, can I still using him until I find someone?Thank you

I'm on workers comp for a neck injury. I'm waiting for them

I'm on workers comp for a neck injury. I'm waiting for them to approve surgery. I'm sick of going to pain management, it's not helping. But I still need disability notes to get paid from WC in the meanwhile. My surgeon says he don't need to see me until he gets approval. What is the longest disability note I can get from a doctor that Workers Comp will accept? I would like to get a 60 to 90 day disability note so I don't have to keep going back to a doctor I dont like and don't help me every month.Thanks

I have a former employee that destroyed several thousand

I have a former employee that destroyed several thousand dollars in equipment and trashed my truck. He also asked for a cash advance and stole from me (purchased cigarettes on my company fuel card). I took the cash advance back, took the money for the cigarettes back and took the money out to clean the truck that he had trashed. I did not try to recover the big dollar expenditures. His wife filed a claim and the TWC has determined that oral agreements are null and that I will have to pay him that money and file a civil suit to try to get the money that way. I have reviewed the Texas pay law and cannot find any law that protects the employer. If I had fired him I would have been dinged for unemployment benefits. Apparently an employee can destroy the very equipment he uses daily, ask for a cash advance with no expectation of having to pay it back and steal without having repercussions. What type of civil suit do I need to file to try to reclaim some of the loss from this person?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the truck?Customer: Texas. It is a 2007 Kenworth T800 seven axle dump truckJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: your site has received many good reviews...JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I am trying to determine today what jurisdiction to file the theft charges on the cigarettes. The former employee had served time in jail and asked me to just take the money out of his check and not file charges as he would be in violation of his parole and have to go back to jail (drug charge). His wife threw a fit when I had to start witholding child support as he had multiple kids and was so far behind that I had to hold 50% of his net and that was still not enough to pay the current payments. I just got the call from TWC that advised me that the oral agreement was not valid and that I had no right as an employer to withhold any money unless it is in writing. He refused to return any phone calls or texts when he quit (no notice) as I was trying to get him to clean the truck out (floor and console covered in ashes and cigarette butts even though he was told not to even smoke in the truck) instead of me having to pay someone to clean it so I could get in it (highly allergic to cigarette smoke).

I am a retired nurse anesthetist. On November 2014 I was put on a leave of absence for using drugs. I met with the administrators and told them I had been using some drugs that had been left over from the days waste, but never when I was at work. I took them home , so no patients are ever at risk. The hospital was very supportive and said I could resign, call the board of nursing etc etc. Anyway, I scheduled a detox and called the Ohio Board of Nursing . I tried 10 to 15 times to call the Ohio Board of Nursing and could never get a person to answer. I left messages with everybodtJA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: This is not a real estate case. But it is in Ohio.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Today, I got a letter from the Ohio Board of Nursing saying that I need to call them because a matter has come to their attention. Nothing has been filed as far as I know. I sent them a letter several months ago saying I was retired. I do not has any licenses now. I am on permanent disability. and have not worked since that day . On Nov. 2015. Is there a statute of limitations?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Hospital did not want to press charges for anything.
