I'm hiring a contractor to perform a seismic retrofit (in

I'm hiring a contractor to perform a seismic retrofit (in Calif.) and I'm trying to see if he has workers compensation insurance. I asked for his COI (certificate of liability insurance) and his state general building contractors license "B" BUT we found no record of his insurance.https://www2.cslb.ca.gov/onlineservices/CheckLicenseII/LicenseDetail.aspx?LicNum=996802He sent an E-Mail with a document from the state insurance compensation fundthat he states is for workmans comp. I need to know if it's legitimateand if he has enough coverage for a $250,000 job he's doing for us.I can download the COI and Document if you need that.Normally the COI or licence check has that information included but not this time.

I have been out on disability leave for psychiatric and mild

I have been out on disability leave for psychiatric and mild cognitive impairment since the day before Christmas. For the past two months I have been working half time in an another hospital in a temporary role with vastly less stress and responsibility. This fulfills the requirement of the Transition to Work program.I want next Wednesday to be my last shift since then I will have my benefits covered for August and not have to pay COBRA until September. As part of the program I must increase my responsibilities every month to reflect my intention to return to work. My psychiatrist faxed the appropriate information to my Transition case worker who has not followed through. This step is to start charting on the electronic health records. My access has expired due to my leave. My manager needs to submit an online form for this to happen. My new boss replaced my old boss last week. I left a message for each of them to call me but neither responded. I am actually happy about that since the relatively new computer charting was part of what threw me over the edge. I would prefer to slide out of there without having to do any and I am on record for having called to ask them to give me access.I have read on line about qualifying for workmen's comp. If I understood correctly, I can resign by mutual agreement or in anticipation of being let go and still qualify. I will call my boss August 5th about being incapable of returning to my unit and resigning instead.If she doesn't call me back before the following Tuesday I'm afraid I could be fired for cause for not showing up for work at my temporary placement.I informed the manager of the temporary position that my last shift would be August 4th then I would return to my unit. I have no intention of returning to my position.Am I correct that it will not hurt my future job prospectives if I terminate but not for cause? Will I qualify for workmen's comp?I do not plan to return to my

I need a second option. I opened a blog on my life living

I need a second option.I opened a blog for awareness on my life living with Fibromyalgia. I am going to start selling apparel on my website. My question is, what is the best way for me to incorporate my new venture. I've read that a nonprofit is never really own by one person it's actually never owned by anyone. It's managed by the board members, etc. The funds I use to open this venture with never be recuperated because it will stay on the nonprofit or donated to another nonprofit is dissolved.This is a story on my life and I obviously want to make money. I eventually want to open a non-profit. To provide services for the fibro community, help with grants to pay for treatments or medication, help with support groups and a support hotline, raise awareness and funds to help with research etc. But, I have already opened my blog and started branding my name and myself, just haven't incorporated yet because I'm not sure which way to go. Thank you.

If you have had a Workmans comp case decided in your favor

If you have had a Workmans comp case decided in your favor and the employer offers you a cash settlement to settle case without a court hearing. You agree to settle .can you use your new health insurance to have whatever your former work injury claim is no longer covering or responsible for....with out repercussions..Also... if you turn down a settlement offer..and continue on with a 132a wrongful termination..and you win in that court...does the employer have to hire you back .or compensate your back salary including your vacation hrs. and benefits up to the time from your wrongful termination. I know there is a 10,000.00 cap in monies awarded from the court ..I would think that would be damages awarded by the Court not including retro salary.

On 03/01-2016 at work on security patrol. Walked full speed

On 03/01-2016 at work on security patrol. Walked full speed into 4 foot pole. Did not report injury at work. Decided incident was my fault. 3 days later due to pain went to Kaiser medical doctor. He diagnosed rib contusion & ordered x rays to verify. Cost was $996. Ins. covered $821 I paid rest. Rawlings Company LLC has sent me form to fill out to determine if work or some other party is liable instead of Rawlings. Prefer not to report incident at work do not want workers comp. Am I then liable for $821 paid by ins. or is ins. still liable? Same if injury occurred at home. Want to do right thing to be fair & honest to all parties involved.

Argument court date was scheduled, I was not notified, and I

Argument court date was scheduled, I was not notified, and I (plaintiff pro se) missed the argument. The judge ordered most of my complaint (2 of 3 counts) thrown out with prejudice. I wish for the judge to reconsider. Do I file a motion or petition, and would I file a motion/petition to vacate, to reconsider, or another option? Should I consider a rule to show cause?
