Customer Question

a alchohol class and locked out. He sets up fences and his hours dont allow him the

he needs to bring documentation from the employer that his hours are not conducive to the class they are mandating. he also needs to bring the schedule for the other class and then advise the court that he has tried diligently to make the earlier class but that his employment will only allow him to attend the later class. he needs to state that he is not trying to avoid the classes. that he wants to take the classes - but that he needs to maintain his employment, too. perhaps, his employer will also be willng to testify that he can make the later class, but if he has to go to the earlier class then he will lose his job.
