Customer Question
I have worked on...

I have worked on this tile job at Nordstroms on phase 3 and 4.. they were both tarped off so no one could see us. I am a Tile installer. On phase 4 we were in a area with a main office where woman were coming out with high heels on and nothing was said. Today,because we do not have a barrier up,the Project manager threw me off the job because I did not have my hair in a pony tail..Now there is a guy with dreads that does have his hair semi pulled back but dreads are hanging in his face... Ladies working in the same area do not have their hair pulled back but are setting displays during the construction. My hair is held back with sunglasses to keep it out of my face..it is only shoulder length... I lost money today and not allowed back on the job unless my hair is pulled into a pony tail. I do not work with food... I do not work with power tools.. I am just dropping tiles on a floor!

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Maryland

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Part time ..just for this job. The contractor I am working for is from NY He is just a sub

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

I feel I am being discriminated by Nordstroms and the GC

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.
