Employment Legal Question?
Is It Legal For An Employer To Make Employees Take Off Of Work Because Of Renovations To An Office, And Not Pay The Employees For That Day? Or To Force Us To Use A Vacation Day Because Of Their Choice To Do Renovations, Which Means Just Adding More Desks To The Workspace.
Unless you have a contract stating otherwise, this is perfectly legal. As very few occupataions are contract-based, you probably do not have a case.
By the way, it is also legal in most places for the employer to fire you if you complain about the policy, with the justification being that others will alos bvecome upset with the poilicy and workers will become less productive.
If you have a complaint, take it to management. There may be another option. That is your only logical choice, without risking losing you job.
What Exactly Does A Criminal Defense Lawyer Do?
I Was Thinking Of Majoring In Poli Sci And Go To Law School To Be A Lawyer, But What Exactly Does A Lawyer Do, Especially A Criminal Defense Lawyer? Do Criminals Hire Them To Back Them Up In Court? What If Someone Was Caught Red Handed Doing Something? Would The Lawyer'S Job Be To Make The Judge Give The Client A Lesser Punishment?
The job is to provide a good defence. Which might be difficult if the client is obviously guilty, but everyone deserves a fair trial and the job of a defence lawyer is to make sure their client gets one. You put the case the best way you can without actually lying. And yes, your clients will be criminals - or at least people accused of breaking the law. You may well find that you're "trying to make bricks without straw" (if you know that Bible story!) but you do the best you can. And then if your client is convicted, you did your best for them. If the client was caught red-handed, then obviously your job is a lot harder, but your job is to TRY and present it the best way you can. You really cannot do the job if you only want to represent clients you actually believe.
To that end, in court you will be cross-examining prosecution witnesses to try and shake them and make them admit they COULD be wrong. "That's not how it happened, is it? I put it to you that THIS is what happened..." And questioning defence witnesses to bring out what looks best for your client.
Then there are things such as plea bargains to negotiate whatever you can get for your client. You try anything you can get away with.
As you can tell from my spelling, I'm English, and I've done jury service. The trial I was on was of a paedophile with 17 counts of rape and sexual assault against 4 girls, including all his own daughters. So there was all of them as prosecution witnesses, plus his very disgusted ex-wife, and a few more who were at the family row about it. The only defence witness was the man himself, and in my opinion he wasn't at all convincing. Not surprisingly we found him guilty of everything. Looking back on it, I'm sure he must have been advised to plead guilty because he really didn't have a leg to stand on.
But my point in telling you all this is to tell you about his barrister. (The profession is split in England - you go to a solicitor first, and they can handle most things, but if the case goes to any higher than the lowest level of court, they can't represent anyone there and the client has to hire a barrister as well, who will appear in wig and gown.) She really tried hard to put up a good fight, and I'd say she can represent me any time! I don't think anyone could have done better to try and discredit the prosecution case. She was just fighting against overwhelming odds. But her client got the best anyone could possibly do.
You will also find that you don't spend all your time in court, because you need time to prepare the case and work out how to make it look good.
Best Sport Law Schools?
Best Sport Law Schools?
What Are The Top Sport Law Schools? & Why?
Thanks In Advance :)
This is an exceptionally small field (at most schools you'll find one sports law class tops) and there's no "ranking" like you would find in US News. However Top Law Schools has complied a list of some schools with larger course offerings.
I would add that going to school for the sole purpose of practicing sports & entertainment law is a very bad idea. There are very, very few jobs in this field - most sports teams, for example, use several different firms for different legal needs like contracts, labor, immigration, etc. A "sports law" specialization won't prepare you for all these needs. If you won't be happy in a legal job that's more accessible, don't bother.
Why Are Lawyers Out Of Work When Legal Services Cost So Much?
I Hear Many Young Lawyers Complaining That It Is Impossible To Find Work And That Many Of Them Feel Deceived By Their Law Schools That Gave Them The Impression That They Will Make A Lot Of Money Upon Graduation.
At The Same Time I Hear A Lot Of People Complaining That Legal Services Cost So Much And That They Can'T Afford Them.
Why Then Can'T These New Complaining Lawyers Get Work Simply By Charging Less? Is It Just Because They Suck At Marketing Themselves?
Newly minted layers have no business working for themselves. They need a job with a firm because law school doesn't prepare you for practicing law. Law firms aren't hiring. They're downsizing. Large firms are outsourcing work to India as are major US corporation.
They were misled. They also went into law with their eyes wide shut. There's a glut of lawyers in this country and there has been for decades. Anyone who goes into law school thinking it's the path to a lucretive career hasn't been paying attention.
Do I Need A Lawyer For A Common Assault Charge?
Hi, I Am Being Charged With Common Assault By The Police - Even Though My Wife Doesnt Want Me To Get Charged. The Statement The Police Have Issued Against Me Is Dramatically Incorrect And I Resent The Implications Within. Its A Slur On My Character And Not True. However The Truth Is That My Wife And I Did Havee A Drunken Argument - And I Did Defend Myself Against Her Onslaught By Gently Pushing Her Away. She Did Get A Bump On Her Head Off The Wall When She Fell Over Drunk. However We Are In Agreement That I Was Acting In Self Defense And That The Force Was Reasonable - And We Regret The Argument Etc - But It Certainly Was Not How The Police Have Said It Was - And My Wife Wants It All To Go Away. We Are Otherwise Happily Married And This Is My First Ever Charge. My Question Is, Do I Need A Lawyer (They Are So Expensive And My Wife Has No Job - So My Wage Pays For Two - In Sydney!). Considering She Doesnt Want To Charge Me, And That I Am Pleading Self Defense - Surely I Dont Need One?
If you get charged, you need a attorney. If it is a spouse, which it is, the charge might be more, as it involves domestic violence. (I know it is only and allegation, but I am explaining from the other side.) See if you can get a public defender.
As to the self-defense claim and the wife not wanting to see you charged, we see that every day. We convict people like that every day. You need a lawyer.
Which Forms For Child Custody!?
I Decided I Need To Get Custody Of My Son For Various Reasons I Have A Child Support Order With A Case Number Already But There Is No Custody Agreement Yet. I'M Wondering If I Use The Same Case Number As Child Support And If Not Which Forms I Use And Ho To Get A Case # For Custody. I Know I'M Suppose To Serve Him Papers However I Don'T Know If I Turn In A Form To The Court House First Or How To Go About This Process There Are So Many Forms I'M So Confused And Can'T Afford A Lawyer And Don'T Have Time To Go To The Court House Can Anyone Help Me?
The child support case is totally separate, you will definitely need to obtain a motion for custody and I understand that you don't have time to go to court but unfortunately all custody cases take lots of time and alot of foot work to do it on your own.
It also really depends on the area you live in, to know exactly which forms you need, and you'll want to consider which type of custody you want to file i.e. sole custody, full custody, partial custody, etc.
I personally went to my local library & found the necessary books that had the forms to print out. After I made copies of the forms to file for "sole custody", I filled them out took them to the clerk of the court, where they set a court date and so on. But in the end I had to get a lawyer anyway. However since I did alot of the foot work on my own and had gotten the case started it wasn't as expensive.
It is possible that your situation may be easier, but honestly in most custody cases you will need a lawyer, even just to show "power of attorney".
I highly recommend you find a legal aid society in your area that will provide free to low-cost legal help or attorneys for low income individuals.
Hope this helps, good luck!
