What Are The Employment Laws....?
That Affect Pizza Hut And Asda? Thanks
Depending on the nature of your inquiry, there are several agencies which regulate hiring practices and employment. If you are under 18, see the rules regulating child labor laws specific to your State.
US Departmeent of Labor Fair Labor Standards Administration:
The FLSA establishes minimum wage, overtime pay, recordkeeping, and youth employment standards affecting employees in the private sector and in Federal, State, and local governments. Covered nonexempt workers are entitled to a minimum wage of not less than $6.55 per hour effective July 24, 2008; and $7.25 per hour effective July 24, 2009. Overtime pay at a rate not less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay is required after 40 hours of work in a workweek.
FLSA Minimum Wage: The federal minimum wage is $6.55 per hour effective July 24, 2008; and $7.25 per hour effective July 24, 2009. Many states also have minimum wage laws. In cases where an employee is subject to both state and federal minimum wage laws, the employee is entitled to the higher minimum wage.
FLSA Overtime: Covered nonexempt employees must receive overtime pay for hours worked over 40 per workweek (any fixed and regularly recurring period of 168 hours — seven consecutive 24-hour periods) at a rate not less than one and one-half times the regular rate of pay. There is no limit on the number of hours employees 16 years or older may work in any workweek. The FLSA does not require overtime pay for work on weekends, holidays, or regular days of rest, unless overtime is worked on such days.
Hours Worked (PDF): Hours worked ordinarily include all the time during which an employee is required to be on the employer’s premises, on duty, or at a prescribed workplace.
Recordkeeping (PDF): Employers must display an official poster outlining the requirements of the FLSA. Employers must also keep employee time and pay records.
Youth Employment: These provisions are designed to protect the educational opportunities of minors and prohibit their employment in jobs and under conditions detrimental to their health or well-being.

Australian Immigration (Perm Residency) With Canadian Criminal Charges?
I Have Canadian Criminal Charges Against Me When I Was In Canada On A Visa. I Have Filed For Australian Permanent Residency And Have Got My State Sponsorship.
But My Agent Says That With Canadian Charges, I Wont Be Able To Clear The Process. Though I Have A Police Clearance Certificate From The Canadian Police, The Crime Has Been Committed After Receiving The Document. I Cannot Fight The Charges As I Am Not In Canada Now, And Hiring Legal Counsel Is Out Of Financial Bounds. A Police Official Told Me That Those Charges Can Be Classified As 'Serious', Though I Was Not Involved In Any Terrorist Activity. It Also Is Not Murder Or Assault.I Guess It Is Some Kind Of A Fraud.
Do You Think This Might Cause A Problem With The Australian Immigration, Considering That I Will Be Providing The Australian Authorities With The Canadian Pcc?
Plz Help Me Out, Guys!
People with criminal convictions can get Australian PR, but people with unresolved charges can't. If you're serious about living here, you MUST face the charges and then apply for your visa once you've faced the music and done your time (if any). Don't bother applying and not mentioning the charges: these days, countries like Australia and Canada exchange a great deal of information and you will be almost certainly be found out. That will then go very badly against you and you will probably be barred from Australia. If you get PR and our authorities then become aware, you ill be extradited to face the charges and will lose your PR. The moment you go through passport control in Australia, the Canadians can find you.
Sidwell, pretty well everything you say is correct about people with criminal records but his question related to the fact that he doesn't YET have a record (only charges) and was able to get a police clearance because he hadn't committed the crime at the time it was issued. He's asking if he will get away with coming here with charges outstanding against him. He won't.
I Was Wondering What The Difference Between A Lawyer And An International Lawyer Is. What Type Of Functions Are They Able To Do That Regular Lawyers Can't. This Is A Divorce Case. One Party Lives In The Usa, The Other In Africa.
An International lawyer specializes in the law (and laws) of other countries, i.e. Africa, as you mention. Not all countries have the same laws, or interpretations of the laws, so it is important to have an International Lawyer, or a lawyer from the particular country, if you're involved in a case outside of the US. You could also just hire a lawyer in Africa.
How Much Should A Lawyer Ask For For A Car Accident?
I Am Emailing U I See U Have High Ratings For This Area. I Was In A Auto Accident And What Happen Was I Was Hit From The Back And My Tail Light Broke. My Neck And Hip Was Sore And There Was Also Someone Elses In The Car To Who Also Got Hurt. I Went To Thearpy For 4 Months And I Am Wonder What Type Of Money Should My Lawyer Ask For For Pain In Surffering.
I don't want to dispute the information already provided by another post but here is my experience. Get in contact with an attorney ASAP. A personal injury lawyer will work on a contingency basis meaning you don't have to pay him unless you are successful in winning the case. Second, never take a settlement from an insurance company until you have consulted with a lawyer. Always remember like attorneys, insurance companies are set-up to make money! It is the adjusters responsibility to pay you the least amount of money for damages including pain and suffering and its the attorneys responsibility to get you fair compensation for damages etc. Depending upon your situation here is a good list of things you should consider fighting for....
medical expenses, loss of wages, loss of job (if it applies), cost of aides, cost of physical therapy, cost of counseling (if it applies), ongoing medical expenses related to the accident, pain and suffering, hospital bills, out of pocket expenses (such as mileage to and from physical therapy etc.)
While you may not recover all these expense related to your accident your attorney should be ready to fight for full compensation!!!
Again, always remember the following: An insurance company wants to settle the claim out of court because there is a good chance you can receive more money if you are represented by an experience personal injury lawyer. Furthermore there first offer is seldomly their best offer!!!!
What Exactly Is A Criminal Attorney?
What Do They Do, And How Long Do You Go To College For?
they defend people for a hefty fee in criminal court cases. their education depends on them, some pass the bar exam quickly and some take many many years to pass their bar exam.
basically they are mostly lawyers who represent criminals who are guilty but then there are some innocent people accused of crimes that they did not commit.
i like the idea that a lawyer defends innocent people but lawyers make the most money who defend guilty people..... seems our courts are about who gets the best lawyer and not about who is innocent or not.
i truly believe there are more criminals who are lawyers than any other profession..... while in prison the convicts get to study law in the libraries for free, great education at tax payers expense and many end up with law degrees
Retail Theft Database, Company Bankrupt?
I Had An Incident At Work Back In August. I Had Taken A Little Bit Over 300.00 From My Employer. I Had To Pay For Medical Bills And I Didn't Have Insurance At The Time. I Paid Restitution For The Entire Amount And I Feel Really Bad About It. Since August, I Have Been Unemployed. Money Is Beginning To Get Really Tight As I Am Living Off My Savings. They Never Prosecuted Me Or Even Took Me To Court. But They Did Enter My Name In A Retail Theft Database. The Company Is Now Bankrupt And Will Close All Stores And Operations On Dec 31, 2008. This Is My First Time Ever Being In Trouble, This Major And I Feel Sincerely Sorry And Wish There Was Another Way Of Me Obtaining The Money For The Medical Bill. I Know Was Wrong And I've Been Punished And Out Of Work And College Because I Can't Pay For Tuition. My Question Is Do You Think That I Can Clear My Name From A Retail Theft System (Dispute The Incident) If The Company Went Bankrupt And There Would Be No One There To Dispute The Case? Anyone That Has Experience In This, Could You Please Advise Me? Thank You.
Find a lawyer(public defender) for this case. I'm not familiar with your state law nor US law but I'm definite your employer needs court order to put you on "theft database" list.
