I am a nurse anesthetist and earlier today I had a meeting

hello, I am a nurse anesthetist and earlier today I had a meeting with 2 of the partners of the group, anesthesiologists, regarding some time off that I requested last week for 2 surgical procedures. I requested to have 2 Friday shifts off, 1 next week and another 3 weeks later, I was able to get next weeks shift covered by a colleague but not the one 3 weeks later. I was told by the anesthesiologist that if I take the day off for the elective surgical procedure I was going to be "punished" twice. meaning I would have to use a vacation day and if they had to have a per diem person come in then I would be responsible for paying for that person for the day @ $125/hr for my salaried income. I responded that this was not in my contract and he stated that it has been like this for years and that they do this to discourage call offs. I was told that this is because a previous nurse anesthetist frequently on Fridays... 10 years ago. He said that they can change the contract at will, no new contract was provided today.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: texasJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: there's nothing to file and nobody to report to, I work for an anesthesia group who is contracted to the hospitalJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

I have maybe 1 or 2 judgements so far and I anticipate more

I have maybe 1 or 2 judgements so far and I anticipate more because I have 3 defaulted private student loans. I'm currently on LTD, but if in the future , I'm off disability and back to the workforce, how can I protect my income? If I increase my 401k contribution to a point where I only have the minimal disposable income allowed by Ohio, would that prevent creditors from garnishing my wages?

I am employee who has resigned from my company in Florida

I am employee who has resigned from my company in Florida and my last day is 7/22. Back in March I was given an advancement to attend a conference which I can not attend now.I agree that I owe the company a debt, and I'm trying to work out a payment plan with them that is reasonable and will not leave me without money until I start my new job.They want to take out money of my last 2 paychecks for the amount of $1,726.00. That is over what I make and it would leave me without money to pay my bills on time or eat, etc.I want to know what my rights are as to legally what they can do to me. I have asked them several times in writing to work with me and why I can't afford to pay it back before I leave the company.

I lost a Worker's comp suit and am awaiting judgment, the

I lost a Worker's comp suit and am awaiting judgment, the judgment will be dramatically more than I am able to pay. I understand. I have closed down my sole proprietor and borrowed money from my Mother to pay the legal bills. My mom has started an LLC to operate her cleaning business and I will incorporate my landscaping activities into this business but will not own any of the business. I will be an employee of hers now until I can settle the judgment and repay her for the loans she has given me. I am looking at the garnishment laws and it seems they can take all income greater than about $825 per month. My question is, can I be paid a low wage by this new company to avoid the garnishment? My wife has a very good job so I don't need the money. Is there anything against the law to be purposely underpaid to avoid wage garnishment?
