Can you please tell me what county and what state you are located in so that I can more effectively assist you with the answers to your questions?
Hello again Judy --
Your question was mistakenly placed in the United States employment law category instead of the United Kingdom employment law category and so I must change the category for you now and opt out of the question so that it can be posted on the UK employment law open question list and one of my UK colleagues can take it from there. Please do not respond to this message because your response will send the entire question thread back to me. Just bear with us for a little bit longer and a UK colleague will pick this up as soon as it is moved over to that question board. Best of Luck with this................
Yes please do proceed. I totally understand that it may be different to Channel Islands.
