Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
As long as you are an employee, you are subject to the demands of the employer, so they can use your names and profile on their website for their business. They must remove it when you are no longer employed. The information they are disclosing is not protected under any privacy laws, so it is not unlawful for them to use it on their websites or in their advertising for their business as long as you are their employee. Once you are no longer an employee who is paid to work there (thus you receive renumeration for them using the information) then they cannot use your personal information for their commercial gain.

My Expert was fast and seemed to have the answer to my taser question at the tips of her fingers. Communication was excellent. I left feeling confident in her answer.

Three H.Houston, TX

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

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
