I am 17 years old. I live and work in the state of Florida.

I am 17 years old. I live and work in the state of Florida. I work in a retirement community, (Terracina Grand) as a server in the dining room. I am applying for a job (@Terracina Grand) where I will be a 3rd shift receptionist from 11pm-7am, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.I am taking online classes at a public alternative education school, and will be done will all senior classes online within a month. And then will not have to attend school until graduation at the end of the regular school year.I talked to my school (Beacon High School, Naples,FL) and they said they would allow me to only be a four day student, (Tuesday - Friday) and give me Monday's off due to my job I am applying for. My business director at work (Terracina Grand) suggested that I request a written statement detailing the days and hours that I have to be at school, so that we can send it to HR for help getting me the job.Child labor laws in Florida say that when school is in session, a 17yr old may only work in the hours of 6:30am-11pm and no more than 8 hours a day when school is scheduled the following day. On days when school does not follow, there are no hour restrictions.Am I able to work this job, especially the Sunday night shift, since I won't have school on Monday, because it will be considered a "weekend" for me? (No hour restrictions?)Thank You,Tyler Davidson

I am trying to get a job at a high school in my area. But

I am trying to get a job at a high school in my area. But ultimately I was turned down and further black listed when applying because my wife works at the high school.I am told it a rule that partners can not work together. But there are many husband and wife duos in this school district. But we are told they get grandfathered in because they were there when the rule came about. But there is at least 1 set that was hired after the rule.Is there anything I can do?

I am an Arizona motor vehicle dealer that has had workers

I am an Arizona motor vehicle dealer that has had workers sign a IRS w-9 form not a IRS w-2, sign a secondary form stating they know they will not have taxes taken out of their pay, and they will be an outside labor employee.All is fine until they quit or get fired and they now try to receive unemployment wages and or protest to the labor board suddenly having a gap of memory where they enjoyed having no taxes being taken out of their pay. is there definitive language that can prevent the ex outside laborer from being successful in over turning their original agreement and the company having exposure and liability etc.
