that was fast!JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: I was terminated on March 13th due to a disagreement, I had with the COO from the company. I was fired not due to work performance or lack of work ethics. The COO was very angry that I answered him back by defending myself from his accusations. He was accusing me of "THROWING OUT A DOCUMENT" because I didnt know what to do with it. He (COO) has the representation for being short and rude. It is talked about freely thruout the office, which included my manager and other executives.JA: Of course. The best way to reach them is by emailing***@******.***Customer: They gave me a "separation agreement/contract" - which I consider hush money - after a few months of starting employment with the company I knew I was not THEIR cup of tea. They loved my work ethics but everything else about me was not liked and they did not hide it. Should I be emailing the address you provided with all this information?JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I still have the contract i have until April 3rd to sign. One page was referring to the payout they would give me - and the next 5 pages are Lawsuit related. I was a bit concerned because I did apply for unemployment and didnt know if that would void the contract.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I actually typed a lengthy summary - should I copy and paste?

I currently share 50/50 timesharing with my ex-spouse and I need to know if he is able to change childcare providers without my agreement? My mother has kept the children since birth and they are now 8 and 2.5 and I am able to work from home frequently and he feels that it is unfair that I get more time to see the children than he does. He wants to put them with two separate sitters on his days while he is at work. They could stay at my house with my mother where they have friends in the neighborhood to play with and get the love from their grandmother.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: KentuckyJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Our divorce has been final since November 2, 2015JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just that my ex-spouse and I have never been able to co-parent effectively and he continues to extremely volatile

Today I walked in the front door with the vice president of

Hello, today I walked in the front door with the vice president of my company. She was very pleasant, but about an hour later, I was told by my direct supervisor that I was not permitied to go to a state based training for information I need for work be a use my "leggings" look like pajamas. They do not, and in fact were quite pricey. Many other women in the company wear leggings, and it is the style to wear them with boots, especially being with term in CT with snow on the ground. I noticed several other employees wearing leggings today. My supervisor said she saw nothing wrong with my outfit, and would let me go, but the VP wouldn't be happy. She allowed me to then work from home for the rest of the day, be a use I told her I was too embarrassed to walk around now, and actually am mortified. I feel singled out. I am not the dknniest person, but not morbidly obese, either, and my coat,as well as my sweater covered my leggings. I checked the dress code policy, and leggings,are not on the prohibited list. Can I do anything about this?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Yes, in ConnecticutJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Sorry for the typos :( No, this just happened this morning,about 2 hours agoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think that is all---if my typos require clarification, by all means I hope they will let me know :)

I have an employer that is completely virtual. I work from home and I am required to pay for my own equipment, PC, Phone line, Internet, and anything else needed. I am in Arizona. Recently they asked me to use my cell phone for work for conference calls. I said no. Employees that are, get preferential treatment. I said that is the same as paying for preferential treatment. They said they can do it as they please. Is it legal to require items that are 100% used for work, like my land line and ones that are partially used for work such as my internet, to be a burden only on the employee?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ArizonaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: no maamJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no Ma'am
