Question For Lawyers About Possible Discrimination At Work?
At My Job, I Am Not Going To Say Where Yet, I Will Say Approximately 90% Of The Employees Are Black, I Am Not Racist, I Swear Or I Would Not Have Applied There. We Have 4 Assistant Managers, 2 Are White, 2 Are Black And The General Manager Is Black. Our General Manager Is A Homosexual And So Are A Few Other Employees. I Always Get Compliments On How Well I Do My Job. Any Way, Here Is My Question:
When I Was Hired I Was Doing A Job That Was Supposed To Have A Pay Increase Automatically And I Never Received One. This Has Been Almost A Year. Another Guy Was Hired On A Few Months After Me Doing A Job That Started At Minimum Wage. He Is Black, I Am White. I Moved To The Other Job That Payed Minimum Wage Because I Never Received A Raise. A Couple Months Ago The Guy Asked If He Could Do The Job That I Was Doing When I Started And They Allowed Him To. He Asked For A Raise And They Gave Him One Not Long After He Started That Job. Now From Time To Time I Do This Job And I Still Have No Pay Increase So I Got Tired Of This And Asked For One. They Told Me They Would Have To Think About It And About Two Weeks Later They Said They Would Give Me One. Then I Waited A Few More Days And They Gave Me A Paper To Fill Out. It Was A Self Evaluation Paper. A Few Days Later The Manager Finally Talked To Me For A Bit About It. Now He Has Told Me That He Will Get Back With Me About It In A Couple More Days And Didn'T Even Say For 100% Sure He Would Give Me A Raise Or How Much. The Part Of That I Believe Might Be Possible Discrimination Is That I Talked To The Other Guy And He Said That All He Had To Do Was Talk To Our Manager Verbally And He Never Had To Fill Out Any Papers And They Didn'T Keep Putting Him Off Like They Did Me. Again, He Is Black And I Am White. Also I Was Talking To One Of The Assistant Managers About A Raise To 7.50 An Hour And She Said That There Is No Way That I Could Get That Much Because I Cannot Get Paid As Much Or More Than A Manager And The Guy That Got The Raise Is Getting 7.55 An Hour And He Is Not A Manager Or Anything Like One. Now Our General Manager Is Homosexual As Well, I Am Not Sure If This Might Have Something To Do With It Or Not. I Always Try To Maintain A Professional Relationship With Everyone At Work As Well As The General Manager, But The Other Guy Is Always Joking Around And Is More Personal As Far As Having Conversations And Joking With The Manager. I Hear The Managers Talk About How Poor Of A Job The Other Guy I Am Talking About Does And They Tell Me That I Do Better Than He Does And So Do Some Of The Other Employees. I Know I Do Better Than Him. So I Was Wondering If This Is Worth Taking To A Lawyer Or Not? Should He Have Had To Go Through The Same Proper Procedures And Protocol As Me? I Think So. Thanks.
Just so you know, the minimum wage is going up to $7.25 in July. Not sure about the rest. The way you prove a discrimination claim is if the company has a history of treating people different. You don't state your age, but you may not be in a protected class if you are male, white and under 40.

What Is The Latest Edition Of Black'S Law Dictionary'S Definition Of &Quot;Sex&Quot;?
I'Ve Got A Black'S 6Th Law Dictionary, But I'D Like Someone To Post The Latest Black'S Law Dictionary Definition Of The Word &Quot;Sex&Quot;. I'D Like To See If There Have Been Any Changes Made To It.
Or, Is There Any Way To Look Up Online What The Definitions Are From The Latest Edition Of Black'S Law Dictionary?
Thanks For Your Input. It Really Needs To Be The Definition From Black'S Law Dictionary Though...
The latest edition is the 8th, but I only have the 6th.
Why specifically a Blacks definition, though? In 99% of the situations where the definition of a word like "sex" is required, the governing definition will be the statutory one - i.e. the definition used in the text of the law.
If, for example, someone is accused of the crime of "unlawful sexual intercourse" (The official name for 'statutory rape' in California) then the definition of "sexual intercourse" that applies is the one that is actually written into the body of the Penal code itself.
Edit... A definition of "gender" would still be Statutory as well.
for example, to again use my own State of CA, the Education Code says:
Education Code 210.7 "'Gender' means sex, and includes a person's gender identity and gender related appearance and behavior whether or not stereotypically associated with the person's assigned sex at birth."
How To Hirer A Labor Attorney?
I Know How To Contact A Attorney The Phone Book ~ The Bar Association ~ Chamber Of Commerce ~ The Better Business Bureau All Have Listing. I'M Trying To Be Discreet.. Is There A Way Off Finding Out Who'S On Retainer Before You Start Blundering Into A Attorney'S Office.. Or Do You Just Start Cold Calling Or Banging On Doors Hoping Your Not Getting A Attorney That'S All Ready On The Companies Payroll.Or Maybe Just Go Into Your Companies Hr Office And Ask Them Who'S Your Labor Attorney ?
Trying To Find This Information Is Daunting.. This Is Becoming Very Frustrating Trying To Find This Information. I Have All Ready Dealt With State And Federal Agencies On This Matter. It'S Like Letting A Rhino Loose In A China Shop... With No Results. Just More Frustration.
No, there's no way. You can't ask them for a list of clients on retainer, either - they can't disclose that.
Single Mother Custody Rights?
I Am 7 Months Pregnant And Currently Single. The Father Of The Child Is 21 And Very Immature As He Will Not Admit. He Has Been In Serious Trouble With The Law Before And Being A War Vet He Is Emotionally Unstable In Some Situations. I Fear For My Unborn Child'S Safety Every Time I Think Of His Birth. The Father And I Were Never Married And During The Entire Pregnancy I Have Done It On My Own With My Own Finances. He Wants To Have 50/50 Custody And That Too Scares Me Because He Is Not Responsible Enough To Be On His Own With A Newborn Baby. I'M Not Saying That He Will Never Get To See His Son. In Fact I Would Love To Spend Time With All 3 Of Us Together. But To Get To The Question, What Are My Rights At Birth? Will The Only Way I Can Remain In Sole Custody Be If He Is Not On The Birth Certificate? And Can I Later Add Him To The Birth Certificate When I Know He Can Be Fully Trusted?
The poster who said that each state is different regarding custody laws is correct, but she forgot one important thing - if you are breastfeeding, there is NO WAY the father would be granted any sort of custody. Visitation perhaps, but that would be limited to a few hours rather than a matter of days. An infant that is exclusively breastfeeding cannot be separated from its mother for more than a few hours and a judge would not require any mother to either pump or supplement with formula. Have you considered breastfeeding, even if for no other reason? Good luck!
Family Law Regarding Custody With Children?
North Carolina: My Father Was Just Diagnosed With Terminal Cancer. He Currently Has Custody For My 10 Year Old Brother And My 5 Year Old Sister. There Biological Mother (My &Quot;Ex&Quot; Stepmother) Has Visitation Rights Every Other Weekend And Some Holidays And Her Current Husband May Not Be Home During The Visitation Due To A Order Of Protection My Father Has Pursued Against Him For Allegedly Hitting My 5 Year Old Sister. This Is Also His Criminal Background.

My Concern Is When My Father Passes Away He Believes He Can Give Primary Custody To His Brother-My Uncle. I Have Concerns About This Because I Believed Once One Parent Dies Custody Automatically Goes To The Next Parent??
And Even If At First My Uncle Gets Custody Cant My Stepmom Request Custody And Prove Her Current Husband Isnt A Threat??
Your dad is correct to an extent. He can express his desires for guardianship/ custody in his will HOWEVER, his will is not binding in the eyes of the court, in regards to where the minor children will live or with whom. And you are correct too that the biological mother can fight for custody; and in fact the state favours biological parents over other prospective guardians, except if said parent is unfit.
This leads me into your first option: proving that the biological mother is unfit (I think you have a strong case with her partner's criminal background: she may not be unfit but he is, and they live together), thus denying her custody and granting it instead to a relative (although this might not necessarily be your uncle; custody could be given to the grandparents, for instance). So to put the odds more in the uncle's favour, apart from the wishes of your father's will, you can also argue that the children in question have developed a special bond to the uncle, in the majority absence of their biological mother (apart from fortnightly visitations). From this, the court will consider that giving him custody is in the best interest of the children, which is the principle rule by which custody cases are primarily dictated.
The other option your uncle has is to legally adopt the children.
Best of luck with everything. It is very sweet that you are thinking of your brother and sister. And also my condolences for your father's illness.
