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?

Good afternoon, my question is, I am an Owner Operator/Contractor

Good afternoon, my question is, I am an Owner Operator/Contractor for a trucking company, and I hired along with the company that I have a lease with, an individual, as a sub contractor to drive my other 18 wheeler truck. 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?

I was hired salary job which I had to relocate to Atlanta,

I was hired for a salary job which I had to relocate to Atlanta, Ga from Florida, which took almost every cent I had to make the relocation. I started work on March 23 and was to be paid every last day and 15th of every month. It has been over a month with no compensation. The CEO of the company withdrew from his duties and company all together leaving me unpaid and no money in the bank. He refuses to accept any contact of any kind. I signed a 1 year contract with him and his company but he tells me he never signed my contract and that he has no intention of compensating, but I do have a signed welcome letter from him stating I am hired with a start day and compensation amount. His words, "I don't want to deal with work anymore,". I am now left with an apartment I cannot afford and was forced to be put on food stamps just to make it by. I was never told I was fired or anything. The CEO just abandoned everything and leaving without a word.He also has my social security number from my W-4 forms and my banking information for direct deposit which worries me. I am worried about my financial well being.The CEO has committed company fraud and hired under false pretenses. This is only scratching the surface. I have gone to the Department of Labor and they couldn't help me. I have never been in this situation before and do not know how to approach it. What are my rights? How can I make sure I am safe a secure? How would I go about pursuing charges against him. Can somebody please help?

When filling out new employment forms (I-9, W4, etc), should the employee always use their full legal name or can they use a shortened nickname? If they use the shortened name, are the forms still legal (ie: Jackie instead of Jackqueline)?
