I am a landlord and have several times been awarded a judgment for back rents or damages owed. I have had some success with garnishment of wages , but they often get fired once garnishment starts. I have heard that you can garnish tax refunds, but don't know anything about it. Have called the state dept. of revenue; they don't know. Have called the state treasurer; no return calls on my messages. Looking for info and the process involved.

I currently work for a company that provides medical

I currently work for a company that provides medical services to individuals in a corrections setting. Currently my assigned position is infection control nurse, Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-4:30 p.. and that is what is posted near the time clock. However, in April I have been scheduled for a 16 hour shift on the weekend in pharmacy. During the week there are different shifts for pharmacy 6:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., noon-9 p.m. and then overnight. The individual who normally does the weekend shift, wants to do the 16 hour. My question, can they mandate someone to do a 16 hour shift?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MissouriJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I'm not sure what to file or report or to whom.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think they are just filling spots so the director of nursing or health services administrator doesn't have to cover.

I live in the State of Kansas. I have an escalating

Hi! I live in the State of Kansas. I have an escalating situation with the owner of a company I worked for in 2008. Recent issues with this company on behalf of local consumers have reignited old complaints about labor issues and unfair hiring practices. I articulated these issues to the business owner directly and articulately. This owner refuses to speak with me outside of cell phone calls or Instagram messages, unless I email her first. My first red flag thought was "she want me to come to her instead of a lawyer." She insists she can't possibly email me first because she has no idea what I'm talking about oh shoot, sent too earlyJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: KansasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No, I offered the business owner the opportunity to speak personally before making a report or filing a claim.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The primary issues are with a sexist manager creating a hostile work environment for female employees, and paying employees less than minimum wage.

I work for a CA non-profit, it is a 501c(3), religious, but

I work for a CA non-profit, it is a 501c(3), religious, but not operating as a church. We have two volunteer admin people who have gained the ear of the Board, excluding our Ex Dir. We are in a financial crunch, these two people are convincing the Board that huge pay cuts are the answer. They want to reduce some of our staff, who all hold the same position, but are at different pay rates due to length of employment down to the same rate of pay for all. This would be a pay cut of 9.09% to 15.25% and a 21.88% to one employee (who is not white). They also want to cut all salaried employees' pay by 50% which would put them all under the min. wage for exempt employees. Employees have not been asked about this, and if they were would not agree to it. Is this legal? Our organization does hold a rental property not connected to our non-profit activities (it is unrelated business income) the Board is refusing to sell this to stabilize our financial position. Could the Board be sued for neglect if they cut pay rather than using the proceeds of sale from this asset to stabilize finances?JA: Can you tell me where the nonprofit is registered?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: As far as starting any kind of claim? No The Board has not made final decisions yet, they are meeting next week to do soJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: nope

Re: Alameda County, California My wife and I separated and

Re: Alameda County, CaliforniaMy wife and I separated and she moved out of our home two weeks ago. We were married in 2003 and due to my previous legal issues we put the home loan and deed and bank account in just her name. She doesn't work and my paycheck has always paid for everything in our marriage. Now, of course, it looks like these legal issues will be hugely complicated.-She has medical issues and she and I want her to keep my company's medical benefits and can that happen with a 'legal' separation?-If I decide to start dating again should we be 'legally' separated to not be accused of adultery?-If we do divorce how will alimony be decided with her not working?-How long does our separation have to be before 'Community Property' is not an issue?-If we were married over 10 years, does she still get 1/2 of my pension?-You'll love this... She (we) bought the house in 2006 with a $455k loan with an adjustable rate of 11.5%...yeah, I know. She (we) now owe $589K on that same loan. She no longer wants this responsibility 'hanging over head' so I currently have a friend (mortgage broker) trying to get me qualified to buy the house from her.She and I will most likely need to go to a Family Law attorney so both of us can ask our questions together and hear the answers together.If you or anyone you know want to make anything really, really complicated that no one could even begin to think up... I'm available. A TV mini-series may be in the works.Thank you for your help!
