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.
Legal Aid Attorneys. Is This Fair?

Anyone Know How To Blow This Whistle, Im Paying 5K For My Custody, She Get Free Ride But Not Fairly
See the link below regarding Legal Aid of North Carolina's eligibility requirements. A potential client's immigration status does not appear to be one of the requirements. Since Legal Aid of North Carolina is a non-profit corporation rather than a government agency, its own staff would be responsible for determining whether a particular client meets its eligibility requirements. In other words, I suspect that LANC, like any other law firm, is entitled to choose its own clients. It may or may not receive government grants that impose requirements regarding who it can or cannot serve. In any event, I seriously doubt that you would have standing to complain if LANC accepted a client who did not meet its requirements. Generally, enforcing the conditions of a grant is the responsibility of whatever government agency gave the grant.
You can (and should) discuss this with your attorney, but I would imagine that he will probably tell you that it would not be to your benefit to pursue the issue of whether your daughter's mother is entitled to be represented by the LANC. Your attorney's time (and your money) would probably be better spent elsewhere.
The reason the LANC attorney reacted to your presence in the office the way you described is probably because there is a rule of professional conduct that prohibits attorneys from communicating directly with adverse parties who are represented by counsel. That rule is designed to protect YOU from the LASC attorney. If you are in the LASC's office talking to LASC staff, then you are putting the LASC's attorney in the position of potentially being in violation of the Rules of Professional Conduct. The LASC attorney did the right thing: She kicked you out of her office, and immediately contacted your attorney. That is exactly what I would do (and have done) if an opposing party suddenly showed up in my office.
Is It Legal To Kill Somebody Out Of Self Defense?
Like If Somebody Comes At You About To Kill You And There Is Nobody Around To Help What Are You Suppose To Do Sit There And Let Them? I Dont Think So.
Yes. Even in the UK, where legal defence of self-defence is notoriously distrusted by the public, it is a complete legal defence, the success of the defence results in acquittal, that it is acceptable that if you, or anyone else, is being attacked or the threat of attack is real and imminent, and you do something to defend yourself, or anyone else, which may have the unfortunate consequence that a would-be attacker is fatally injured, then you have committed no crime.
People though will try to test the law to the extreme. They will also try to find difficulty where there is none. People come unstuck when they attempt to use the legal defence of self-defence where they have exceeded its boundaries. It is acceptable to do what is necessary to end an immediate and real threat. It is not acceptable to do more than that. People have chased burglars up the street to exact revenge, and relied on self-defence, but it does not work in that scenario. A man shot a burglar in the back and relied on this defence, but again, it cannot work in that scenario either - a man who has his back to you is clearly not an immediate danger to your safety.
But a judge told a burglar, who was stabbed once in the leg by a householder, that he got exactly what he deserved. The limits of the defence, therefore, are clear.
