Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for the information. Can you please tell me what your legal question is? Also, is this your first appeal level hearing? Are you saying you were on unpaid lunch break when you fell asleep? Did you violate any workplace policies by doing this?
Thank you for your reply. The reality of your situation is that you need a local employment law attorney to assist you at this next level of your appeal stage, as it has to hinge on mistakes of law made by the initial hearing officer at the first appeal. That is not something some via this forum can do without access to your appeal record. However, on the chance that another Expert has had a case very similar to this in NY, I will go ahead a opt out and someone will let you know if they think they can be of assistance without all of the facts and your file.
Thank you for your reply.
You really should be using a local attorney, being a good and intelligent nurse or doctor does not translate to being able to represent yourself any more than being a good attorney translates into me treating myself for my medical conditions.I cannot by state law represent you or anyone else I am afraid as state laws forbid it. We can point you to the right direction and inform you based on the facts you present to us and the laws and then you need to use that information locally to get assistance and in this type of case, if you have to appeal to court, you are at your last step and need to use the local attorney as soon as you get your reply filed to stop the statute of limitations by filing July 5.
If you want to talk on the phone, I do not take calls in the evenings, so it would have to be a morning or early afternoon time call. If not we can just deal back and forth here.
