Customer Question
I recently got a...

I recently got a new job in a pediatric dental office . I worked 4 days and got fired the owner told me it was that I never disclosed my son was a dentist. My son is 38 yrs old , I'm going to be 57. My son works in dade county and I worked in broward. My soon is moving 2hrs away because he build a office north of here. At no time did the employer as me any questions.and no paper was given to me to require that information. In the past if when I provided the info I did not get the. I did not disclose it this time for that reason. My son is 38 and apparently he knows these dentist, I was aware. If I'm a adult should I have to disclose my grown children's occupations?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you discussed the termination with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

I asked the Dr what reason would I have to disclose my adult children's occupations . The son in question is no where close to this office the work in different counties. He told me he could not trust me because he said I was deceptive. No I have not discussed this with any other attorney. My girlfriend reccommended I investigate to file out if that is legal. I had another job other I would have taken if I knew this was a issue.

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you an "at will" employee? Do you belong to a union?

What does at will me? I am not Union .

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No thank you

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.
