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 Do International Divorce Lawyers Cost?
My Friend Needs A Divorce To A Woman That He Married In Canada ..He Now Lives In The Us And Needs To Divorce Her. How Much Would The Papers Cost .And How Much Will The Attorney Cost... Please And Thank You!
The average divorce costs $20,000 in lawyer and court fees. While there are do-it-yourself divorce kits, they are not always recommended in situations where custody and property distribution are disputed. A reputable divorce lawyer will cost at least $75 an hour. They may also ask for a retainer fee, which can be anywhere from a few hundred to thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars.
How To Find Out If A Lawyer Has Been Brought Up On Charges With The Macomb County Bar Association?
State Of Michigan
It is unlikely that a lawyer would be brought up on charges before a county bar association. More likely the complaint (unless a very informal one, leading to mediation and not sanctions) would be brought before the Attorney Discipline Board: http://www.michbar.org/professional/disc...
Normally, actions of state boards are published, often online. Do a Google search or look at the link above. Note that judges can impose or recommend discipline based on misconduct during trials.
((The other two answers above make no sense, given what I have just said. The link above leads to three relevant sites:
* Attorney Discipline Board
* Attorney Grievance Commission
* Judicial Tenure Commission ))
How Do You Plead To Probate Court In Florida?
I Am A Beneficiary In My Fathers Will. He Died Almost A Year Ago. To Make A Long Story Short The Representative Is Ripping Us Off And The Probate Attorney Is Incompetent. Nothing Has Been Done On Time Or Correctly. I Wrote The Court Over 6 Months Ago As Well As Another Beneficiary And They Just Ignored Us. We Have Not Received One Dime From My Fathers Estate And I Think They Are Going To File For An Extension. They Didn'T File His Va Insurance On Time And Now They Won'T Pay His Medical Bills So They Are Using That As An Excuse. I Can Not Afford An Attorney. The Smallest Retainer Fee Is 2,500.00 Which I Don'T Have. Everyone Told Me To Wait Until They Try To Close Probate But At This Point I Don'T Think The Court Will Even Look At Anything Other Than To Sign Off. I Feel Like I Have Been Raped By The Representative, Her Attorney And The Court System Doesn'T Care. Has Anyone Else Had Experience In The Florida Probate? Time Is Of The Essence Here. The Representative Has Already Blown Almost 50,000.00 Supposedly Taking Care Of The Homestead Which She Never Approved Of Taking Over By The Court. Are Me And My Other Siblings Gonna Get Taken To The Cleaners Or What. I Am At My Wits End On This.
You need to act NOW!!!
You father must be rolling in his grave knowing of the heartache you and your siblings are going through!
In contested matters, a probate court examines the authenticity of a will and decides who is to receive the deceased person's property. In a case of an intestacy, the court determines who is to receive the deceased's property under the law of its jurisdiction. The probate court will then oversee the process of distributing the deceased’s assets to the proper beneficiaries. In some jurisdictions, such courts are also referred to as orphans courts, or courts of ordinary. Not all jurisdictions have probate courts, in many places, probate functions are performed by a chancery court or another court of equity.
Probate courts may also deal with other matters, including conservatorships, guardianships, name changes, marriages, and adoptions; although in some jurisdictions these issues are dealt with by family courts.
The surrogate court can be petitioned by interested parties in an estate, such as when a beneficiary feels that an estate is being mishandled. The court has the authority to compel the executor to give an account of his actions.
How Can A Fetus Have Legal Representation?
I Have A Question For Anybody With Legal Expertise In This Area:
Can A Fetus Have Legal Representation? I Heard About A Case Were A Woman Was Refusing A C-Section In Favor Of A Vbac And The Hospital Got A Court Order And At One Point The Hospital's Lawyer, The Woman's Lawyer And The Fetus's Lawyer Had A Discussion???
If the fetus is viable (it can survive outside the womb) it is recognized as an idividual with its own legal rights and is entitled to legal representation - especially if the mother's choices potentially put the fetus at risk.
