I was ordered to stop this practice. When I did, I started referring clients to the Health and Social services Commissioner.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I was hauled before a disciplinary hearing without warning and in the hearing the prosecuting manager enter evidence that he altered. Two sentences that were complimentary of me. In spite of the altered evidence I was given a letter of reprimand. Do I have any legal recourse? My Union business agent is pursuing all admin options. Thanks!JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full time.

I was an employee of a consulting firm where I signed a non

I was an employee of a consulting firm where I signed a non solicitation agreement. Firm laid me off in January 2016. Firm hired me as a part time 1099 consultant (non W2 employee) in June with no written contract, just entered hours and was paid a fixed fee. Client I was working on decided to terminate the consulting agreement with the firm and then the client spoke to me directly about coming to work for the company. When I called the firm to explain the matter, I was fired on the spot from my consulting agreement, and then consulting firm and client engage in a verbal attach on each other claiming the firm (and my work) was not within the scope of the engagement and each threatened suing the other. To my knowledge, they decided to just part ways and to preserve the goodwill of the firm, the owner refunded the fees paid by the client.Note that NO REFUND was required under the contract in that I delivered 100% of the deliverables on the engagement one week ahead of schedule. I have documented proof of the deliverables. In any event, I just received a legal letter from the firm demanding he $4,700 they paid me in fees, when in fact I delivered 100% of the engagement and the firm is refusing to pay me the last 2 1/2 weeks of fees on the engagement (about $2,700).I really don't care about the $2,700 as I tried to do the right thing by immediately calling my firm and advising them that the client was going to terminate, but becasue I mentioned that they had an interest in hiring me, I am now having to consider hiring a lawyer just to have the entire matter go away. Any advice?

The Feel Good Store is a catalogue published, among others,

The Feel Good Store is a catalogue published, among others, by AmeriMark of Cleveland, Ohio. Last April, the U.S. Postal Service, at my request, sent this company its Prohibitory Order Number(###) ###-#### ***** order forbade the catalogue company from sending me more catalogues, due to my having formally complained about offensive content (i.e., sex toys). In last week's mail, I received another Feel-Good-Store catalogue containing the same kind of offensive content. I am returning to the post office today to file yet another complaint. My question: since this company ignored the USPS order, do I have grounds for a harassment lawsuit?
