Customer Question
I was offered a job...
I was offered a job with housing included. I have had a lot of medical problems from hip replacement , torn rotator cup , kidney stones and hearing loss.From Jan. 2014 to Aug.2015 I had avg.60+hrs a week totaling 4,391.5 hours in 18 months.This comes to 43,915.00 at 10 an hour. If rent and electric are 1,600.00 per month,then that comes out to 28,00.00,leaving 15,035.00 left over. This would cover 9.396 months at 1,6.00 per month.My Boss has said he no longer wants me at the job,he said he wants me out.Starting in Aug.I have only worked 3 weeks in Dec.because of surgery and hearing loss.March would be 8 months April 9.I have logged my hours and givin my Boss a letter and coyies of my hours.Do I have a right to stay till April.Seeing he never paid me and this house was part of the deal stated in a text.

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.
