Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to answer your question.

I think I may be slightly confused. Are you asking if your employer has to pay you for days that you did not work because you were put on an unpaid leave of absence by mistake? I very much look forward to assisting you on this matter.

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.
