A Friend Was Advised To Resign Her Position After Using All Her Sick Days Due To Cancer Treatments. This Means She Loses Her Benefits But Without Resigning Was Told She Would Be &Quot;Awol&Quot; . Isn'T There A Law Protecting Her?
Yes, under FMLA, and no, she does not have to resign.
"Under federal law and some state laws, certain employees have the right to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid leave per year (any 12-month period) for the following reasons:
you have a serious health condition that keeps you from doing your job; you need to care for a sick child, spouse, or parent with a serious health condition;
you need to care for a newborn child, newly adopted child, or foster child.
If you are eligible, you may take family leave (leave to care for someone in your family) or medical leave (leave to seek care for or recover from your own serious health condition) without losing your job.
Under the law, your job is protected during your leave. When you return to work, your employer must give you either the same job you had before your leave, or a position with equivalent benefits, pay, working conditions, and seniority. Your employer must continue to pay for your health insurance coverage during your leave as it normally would have during your employment."
Military Spousal Support/ Bah Payment?
My Husband And I Are Currently Separated. He Was Paying Me A Percentage Of The Bah Through A Joint Account That Was Meant For Me. He Has Closed This Account And Also Taken The Money That I Left In The Account For Bills That Are Automatically Taken Out. Is He Allowed To Just Cancel My Account And Take My Money That He Is Suppose To Pay Me? I Personally Don'T Think This Is Allowed Nor Wright. What Will Happen If I Contact His Chain Of Commands? I Am Trying To Take Care Of My Family Until The Divorce Is Finalized. I Was Told He Must Pay Me Till We Are Divorced. What Steps Do I Need To Take So He Gives Me The Money He Took And Continue To Received The Bah Till Our Divorce Is Finalized? Thank You For Any Help.
Look i've just went through the samething. Contact whatever seargent whose # u have, dont waste your time talking to the ones thats low in rank they dont care, ask for the commanding officer's phone number. Lie and say you've already spoke with IG (inspector general....they make sure that everyone is doing there job) IG told you to start with commanding officer and if commanding officer dont do anything about nonsupport payments give them a call back. Commander will do what needs to be done I promise you. But if commander doesn't handle up contact ig on the base that he's located and file a complaint....they will give you a support officer that will bring papers to the commander himself and stay on him to get the job done. If u dont know the # google it (ex. Ig on fort carson base) look on the website. He will check back with you. Soldier is suppose to support u until divorce is final. U can put it towards the rent are use it for something else as long as he pays u. He In the meantime try to find out his unit job information and file for child support. If they wont give it ask commander to email u something stating how much soldier is required to pay u. Once recieved job information will b in letterhead. If he wont child support will use the information u have a photo id and get him served. The more information the faster but either way he will get served even if they have to do it at work. Even if he is cooperating tell them he's not as long as divorce isnt file they will get a court order asap after speaking with you. Keep in mind all the military can do is try to make him pay it and punish him if he doesnt. They can even go as far as kicking him out, but if he cares about his job he'll pay. If both parties are getting out of hand they can just take bah and bas no one will get it. When speaking to commander keep it short and simple. Let them know what u want. Have ur dates together and dont get emotional they're just interested in getting the problem resolved. Commander will stay on soldier, if not, ig will stay on commander. Keep in mind that what he's paying you is not child support if u file child support u are allowed to file back child support frm seperation date. Yes u can file child support while married as long as there isn't a divorce pending, because all that will b addressed in court. **** what everybody else saying there not in our shoes. Get what is needed for kids thats what they have mommies for to protect them. to get everything straightened out could take atleast 1 month and a half. My advice become and EDUCATED pest.
How Much Money Do Lawyers In Private Law Firms Make Per Year? How Much Do Partners Make?
How Much Do Associates Make?
"Private law firm" covers everything from two guys in the strip mall to the biggest, most profitable firm in the country.
A partner in a firm might make, year-after-year anything from 0 to somewhere in the neighborhood of $5 million. The 20 or so most profitable firms have average profits per partner in the region of $2 million.
A plaintiffs' lawyer might make more than that in a contingent fee from a particular case, but not year-after-year. There have also been instances, though not so many recently, in which firms made dramatic non-recurring profits from equity given to them by clients.
The high-end for associate salaries is about $145,000 first year, and somewhere in the neighborhood of $300,000 seventh year. The low end, I suppose, is also around 0.
Does This Person Need A Lawyer?
If A Person Gets A Ticket For No Insurance And And Expired Inspection Sticker Should They Plea Guilty And Pay The Fine Or Hire A Lawyer. This Person Has Never Had Any Other Drving Offenses Before? What Shoud They Do? Or Could They Talk To The District Attorney To Put The Case Off So They Can Get All Insurance And Tags On The Car. Can The District Attorney Ask To Have This Postpone To A Later Date?
go to the DA and ask for a prayer for judgement. Since you have no other offenses and a clean record, they may do this. If not, they may at least reduce your fine. If you get your car inspected and insurance on the vehicle before the court date, take it to the DA and they may drop the inspection penalty.
Don't waste your time or money on a lawyer that will do the same thing you can do.
What Kinds Of Jobs Could I Get As A Corporate Lawyer In Either Federal, State, Or Local Government?
I'M A Partner At A Law Firm And Have Been Practicing Corporate Law For Ten Years.
I'm going to disagree with one of the previous answers, based on the fact you're a corporate lawyer. Unless you're using that phrase in some manner with which I'm entirely unacquainted, that means you are *not* a litigator. That - plus your relatively advanced seniority - will make it unlikely that you can get a job in a prosecutor's office.
The most likely job in your field would be doing business-type things (contracting, etc.), which might be in the state attorney general's office, maybe a city attorney or perhaps a federal agency. The problem with these jobs is that they're fairly "civil-service-ish," which means they don't pay very well, and they're going to consider you hugely over-qualified.
The best course for finding something commensurate with your experience and level of expertise would be to use (or make) the political connections necessary for a higher-level political appointment. It still won't pay all that well, but it would at least use your skills, be somewhat interesting, and has the potential to move your career forward instead of backward.
How Legal Aid Works In Canada?
Recently Friday Night I Was Just Going To Bars With My Boyfriend Having A Couple Drinks, Not Even Getting Drunk And We Went To This One Bar To Meet His Brother And Friends. So We Had To Wait In Line For A Bit And The Bouncer Let Them In And Stopped At Us. So We Waited Patiently And Asked Him If We Could Just Go In And He Said No, Its A Hours Wait Being A Jerk. I Was Just Playing With The Little Chain He Had Across Holding The Line Cause I Was Bored And He All A Sudden Got Mad And Told Me Im Not Getting In..Then My Boyfriend And I Left And I See A Hot Dog Stand So I Grabbed A Thing On Bbq Sauce And Squirted His Shirt A Little, Its Not Like I Unleashed The Whole Bottle On Him And Ran. I Know I Was Wrong To Do That, But It Was One Of Those Moments If You'Re Going To Be A Jerk, Then So Am I. Later On That Night After Him And Me Went To Another Bar We Were Randomly Walking Not Even On The Bars Property, The Bouncer And Some Random Guy Came Up To Me And Tried To Grab Me Then Drag Me Towards The Bar. I Was Resisting And They Started Dragging Me On The Sidewalk And I Was Wearing A Skirt So My Legs Are Cut Up Mainly On My Knees Plus Random People Around Us Could See My Underwear, Embarassing. His Friend Who I Did Nothing To Punched Me In The Lip And It Was Bleeding And They Just Man Handled Me Pretty Much. My Boyfriend Pushed Them Away And Was Huddled Over Me Protecting Me. After His Friend Went And Got The Cops And Watched The Video Tape. I Got Arrested Just For Squirting Bbq Sauce, I Guess Thats Assult. Then Taken To A Holding Cell, Then Jail For A Bit. I Got Finger Printed, Picture Taken And All My Information Taken In, I Was There For About 12 Hours. So This Coming Friday I Have Court And Have To Find A Legal Aid( Free Lawyer In Canada )
Sorry For The Long Story, But My Question Is What Happens In Court? Do Legal Aids Come Right To Court With You? Would I Beable To Press Any Charges Towards The Other Guy That Punched Me In The Face Or The Bouncer For Beating The Crap Out Of Me? And If Anyone Knows What Might Happen To Me?
Yes you can file charges on them.I would contact legal aid immediately.Explain to legal aid when your court date is.If you cannot get an app before court then when you arrive,ask to speak with duty council & they will help you or have your case remanded so you may obtain a lawyer.
