We ask her to complete her W-4 and then we pay her the next day.She received her paycheck the next day without the Paystub because it was shipped to us the next day from the payroll company.She never came back to get her paystub.A month later I received a letter from her lawyer saying that we did not pay her on time and we did not provide her the paystub.Do you suggest we get a lawyer for this case?Are we doing anything illegal by any chance?

We just started hiring employees to serve as licensed

We just started hiring employees to serve as licensed insurance agents with our agency. One of the requirements to be licensed is the employee attending a third-party licensing class. In this instance, a new "hire" class was sent to the 2-day training prior to signing any of their employment documents (w-4, employee handbook, etc). One of the employees called to say that they cannot make the 2nd class. As a result, they cannot be certified and cannot move on with the rest of the class. This ends their employment. In this instance, apparently the plan was to have the employees complete their paperwork on Wednesday when they reported to work onsite. How do we handle the person that attended class on Monday, but is now no longer going to be employed because they missed the class on Tuesday?

I am a Department of State employee recently posted to New

I am a Department of State employee recently posted to New Delhi, India. Prior to my assignment to New Delhi, I lived and rented an apartment in Washington, D.C. for approximately 8.5 years. Before my departure I changed my address to my sister's address in Brooklyn, New York. I took this action for two primary reasons: First, I required a valid U.S. license while abroad and my D.C. license was set to expire in August 2016. Second, she is my closest living relative I trust to open and screen my mail and to serve as my proxy. All relevant banking and PII has been changed to reflect this new address.One additional benefit to changing my residency to New York appears to be that NY residents who spend 548 (+) days overseas are exempt from paying NY state taxes. I would like to ensure that I meet to definition of a "New York State Non-resident Domicile" and ask how I go about reflecting this on my W-4?

He was involved in a work related accident that severed his finger. I did not get workmen's compensation for him, so what are my chances for being responsible for his medical expenses, and loss pay?
