Customer Question
A fortnight ago I...

A fortnight ago I was dismissed from my job.Although I had a contract they gave me no explanation or time to get used to the idea.I complained & was given work in another pharmacy with less hours.Is there something I can do or say to help my situation?

Lawyer's Assistant: Was this discussed with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

HR just said it would be closer to home.

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the workplace "at will" or union? Is the job hourly or salaried?

No union.It is hourly paid

My Expert was fast and seemed to have the answer to my taser question at the tips of her fingers. Communication was excellent. I left feeling confident in her answer.

EricRedwood City, CA

Three H.Houston, TX

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
