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.
Who Pays For Legal Aid Services?
I Keep Seeing People Suggesting Going To Legal Aid For Help. Is There A Presumption This Is A Government Paid Program?
You can presume anything you like. If you want to know how some specific program is funded, ask that program. There is no universal answer. In my state, all the lawyers have trust funds, keeping money temporarily for others. Those accounts pay interest. That interest is used to fund several agencies that provide legal services to the poor. There are other states that use lawyer's licensing fees. Others rely on private donations, taxpayer money or a combination of the two.
Child Custody Advice?
So I Have One Biological Daughter, And One Adopted Daughter That I Adopted Right After She Was Born Because Her Mother Died In Child Birth And Her Father Walked Out On Her And Her Mother Before She Was Born. She'S 14 Now, And Her Father Is Wanting Custody Of Her Even Though They'Ve Never Met. What Should I Do?
Hi, As you've adopted the child, there is no custody issue. The father is 14 years to late to revoke his relinquishment or appeal the termination of his parental rights. You could allow visits, letters, etc., this would enable both of you to get to know him.

First off whomever told your brother to hide his adhd (if this was a recruiter, can be charged with fraudulent enlistment and is JUST AS GUILTY as your brother for said fraudulent enlistment. You need to have several things done first he has a JAG lawyer assigned, request that he has a full medical work up including psychological screening. You also need to retain a civilian lawyer with military experience. You also need evidence, sworn statements about character, and medical records. If your brother was ADHD without EVER HAVING BEEN PUT ON MEDICATION then it should have not been an issue, though it sounds that this is not the case. Having been on medication requires a waiver, or they will not take him. They typically do not take kids that have been on Ritalin or other adhd medications because of concerns with performance and behavior when not taking the medication.
It is a safety issue for your brother and the people he works with.
You are involved in a deep mess. Tread these waters very carefully and work on the fraudulent enlistment. Also if these two young ladies are military they can be charged in accordance with the UCMJ with adultery (double edged sword as so can your brother...)
