I put in my two weeks notice on Jan. 19th. I didn't finish

Hey. I put in my two weeks notice on Jan. 19th. I didn't finish my two weeks my last day was on Tue. Jan. 31st. My boss lives in a different city so my time sheet gets faxed to her on Wednesdays before payday. They were faxed to her this Wed. and today was payday. My issue is that my boss didn't pay me for all of the days that I worked. I worked 61hrs and 30mins. She only paid me for 23hrs and 30mins.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not yet I did contact her to let her know about the issue and she said that she will put the rest of my check in the mail next week but I have to get from were I worked. The thing that I'm worried about is that she'll take out more money on the next check for (F.I.C.A and medicare).JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes, I worked at a daycare and on Monday my son pushed the wall which resulted in a whole. The problem is that the whole is way bigger then his foot which is what he pushed it with I have pictures to prove it. A coworker took a picture of it and sent it to my boss who said I had to pay to fix it. I understand that he made the whole appear so I was willing to pay. I however fixed it myself the way I was told to when a similar incident happened with another child. On Tuesday when my coworker got to work I told her and showed her what I did so she took a picture of it and sent it to my boss, who said that it wasn't good enough and I still have to pay to have it fixed. This is why I didn't finish up my two weeks, I didn't want my son to be able to do anything else.

I work for a company that has recently decided to do away

I work for a company that has recently decided to do away with positions in the hospital. This will affect four employees total. Three of which have already been told about their position either changing or being done away with all together. One employee has not been told at all. This position will no longer be valid effective January 29, 2017. Our manager informs this one employee that she needs to stop asking questions about her job and badgering employees trying to find out if she will have a job at all in the coming weeks.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: What is the time frame in which an employer must let their employee know that their job has been eliminated? As it stands this employee will find out Monday afternoon that she will no longer have a job effective the following Sunday.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I'm sorry, I live in Arizona.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: As of right now, this employee has not reported anything to the CNO. I am her clinical supervisor and I am trying to help her in anyway I can.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Apparently this employee is in corrective action of some sort. Not sure what it is or if it has anything to do with the decision that the manager is making about not telling her.

You previously helped me with an employment contract that

Hi Richard, You previously helped me with an employment contract that contained a non-compete. I was actually sent TWO contracts, one from the local office I would be working for (which is a franchise of the larger corp) and one for the corporation itself. After revising the contract with the local office based on your feedback, I am now reviewing the one for the corporation. I would appreciate you taking a look and letting me know what you think. Specifically, if I need to resign for some reason, what are the consequences for myself and my book of business?

We own a duplex in Bedford, Texas. About 17 years ago,

We own a duplex in Bedford, Texas. About 17 years ago, through a verbal agreement (no contract or written lease) we permitted my handicapped daughter and her husband to live in this duplex as long as they paid the utilities. My son-in-law has been terminated from employment and is now basically unemployable. My daughter requires continual therapies and expensive medical attention and will eventually move into an assisted living facility. This duplex must go on the market to be sold to help cover these critical, medical requirements.My son-in-law, in a peaceful way, refuses to move from the duplex. He states he cannot be removed because he pays his rent through a verbal agreement. His family is being called-in to help.We understand the necessary and lawful requirement to provide him at least a 30-90 day notice to place the duplex on the market. But, how do we lawfully handle his removal if he continues to refuse? What are the proper and/or lawful steps to help us follow through with this daunting task? We do not want to evict him, but it may become necessary and we need lawful advice for that as well.Your advice is greatly appreciated.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?Customer: TexasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no... it's written here

My partner of 16 years have had a rough past few years. We

My partner of 16 years have had a rough past few years. We are working on getting back together and want to spend New Years together at his place of employment. He is contracted to provide the music for the event, his boss will not let me attend to function because he happened to have had sexual affairs (with her best friend) also happens to be the bartender while we were broke up. I do not care if she will be there all I want is to be with my partner on this night. His boss said if I come up to the party she will have been banned. Can she even do that if I have done nothing wrong?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: West VirginiaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: noJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: She also is threating his job over all this. She said if he does not attend that he will lose all future jobs.

I was working for Samsung in Austin, TX. I was well liked

I was working for Samsung in Austin, TX. I was well liked and I was good at my job. I was very unexpectedly terminated after a management restructuring of my department. I know I do not have a wrongful termination case (thank you Texas), but less than two weeks after my termination I was hit with four Grand Mal seizures out of nowhere. My neurologist told me the seizures were caused by the intense amount of distress from being let go in that fashion. My question is: Is Samsung liable for the expenses I incurred seeing as they were cited as the cause of my medical issues? If not legally would I have a civil case?
