I'm back with more problems: The Bar has been good to work with. My case is being reviewed. In the meantime, the person (my employee
) that was giving me problems continues to do so. Without going into details, I am formulated a plan to just plain move away from the problem. I have a potential "taker" and it will take time (and I will lose considerably since my employee has refused to answer phone calls or emails and I have orders that need to be filled with no one to make and ship them.)
1) If I get the person who wants to "take over" the operations, which will be at HER location many states away, I will have to arrange for everything to be moved from the present location. No easy task.
2) to relocate I know people I can hire who will help, but the landlord (my employees husband) has barricaded the driveway
before. I fully expect this to happen again. The police say it is a civil matter so I know I cannot count on them to do anything...UNLESS I get a court order?
3) I am paying rent and utilities in the meantime and nothing is being shipped out. This is costly me a great deal of financial loss! I can cut off the electric (but 1/2 of the building houses my employees son who LIVES there!) 4) My entire business nis "open for grabs"... they could remove just about anything while I am not there.
So my questions are: 1) how to protect my property, 2) how to get a court order, 3) can I make a claim for lost revenues for the time my employee was not filing orders (and most customers will cancel).Lastly, I have been hunting for property...I will have to put that on hold since the down payment on a house will likely be greatly diminished if I end up relocating.Lastly, I assume that I (again) will need a good lawyer and will have to spend money I really do not have (credit cards and my savings). What kind of lawyer? Or do you have an alternate suggestion that might help...
