Customer Question
Hi there-this is impressive...

Hi there-this is impressive. I have a colleague who put in for vacation and was told that he had to find his replacement if he wanted to take his vacation. Sounds bad to me....

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?

I'll have to check with him. He is not strong w/ English-that's why I'm trying to help.

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

Full time and at will. We're the Napa County Transit System.

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

He's complained about Mexican jokes from his boss too.

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.
