Customer Question
My employer is refusing...

My employer is refusing to pay for work that I did saying that it was travel time when it's inaccurate he disrespects and abuses the workers because they don't speak well enough English to defend themselves

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

I am in Marietta Georgia

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

It's full time

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

He's threatening me to fire me if I seek legal help

Travel time for work must be paid. If company refuses you may file a complaint in court, with the labor department, and can also have a lawyer contact the company. Not paying violate federal and state law, and company could be liable for penalties and legal fees.

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.
