28 Questions Answered
- Q. I asked my employer over a month ago to have Sunday off to go to church and they have not done anything as of yet.
- A: First of all you should put your request in writing and explain why you need this day off. If you are going to be taking the same day off on a regular basis maybe you should take leave with pay or leave without pay or just make arrangements not to work on that day.
- Q. Coworker is making childish remarks and you say "your almost 70 yrs old and acting like a child."
- A: Well, it depends on what the policy is at your workplace. Generally speaking, I would say that actual discrimination would require a lot more than the statement that you make reference to.
- Q. If I'm already working for an company, can they fire me if a background check company doesn't provide a timely response
- A: This sounds like a hypothetical question. An employer can always come up with a reason to deny you a clearance, no matter how high or low the level of the clearance.
- Q. Job knew I had disability. Sent a letter to say come to work, if no note in 6 days your fired. Was time to short?
- A: No, not necessarily. It all depends on the facts, intent, and motivation of your employer, as well as whether or not you followed the law on requesting a reasonable accommodation. The employer knowing you are disabled is not enough. You must make a request for a reasonable accommodation, your medical issue must be of the type protected under the law, and it must be documented by a qualified medical professional.
- Q. Im a federal supervisor. I manage a staff of 8. One of my employees is harassing me with frivolous emails and demanding
- A: Just based on what you have presented I can't advise you. It requires meeting to discuss the case, review of paperwork, and research. However, it sounds like you may be open to getting in trouble with upper level management and should hire counsel to protect your rights.
- Q. What recourse do I have for being slander by my employer to congressional staffers/ hearing?
- A: It definitely sounds like you need to hire a lawyer before you respond on writing or in person. Everything going forward will be shaped by your employer and the narrative he/she wants to create. You need to carefully counter that narrative. It is best to have someone speak on your behalf when possible. Put a buffer between you and your employer/ investigators. It would help a lot if i knew more about your case and what you are being accused of. My prices are very affordable considering my time as a lawyer and the DC Market. Feel free to contact me. We can meet for lunch, your home, or at the office. I hope to hear from you.
- Q. I have stopped making payments - for 4 mo. on credit card & medical debt - about 15,000. in debt. If they file judgement
- A: No!
- Q. Can a law firm be sued?
- A: Well, I guess you got what you paid for. But seriously, even though the firm represented you for free, if it was negligent in the handling of your case and breached its duty of care compared to other law firms in the community, handling the same types of cases, theoretically you can sue the firm. However, based on the facts you present, I don't think you have a legally sufficient basis to sue the firm.
- Q. Is it legal for our government to give billions of American taxpayers dollars to an illegally nuclear armed country.
- A: The U.S. Government has been giving Isreal Billions of dollars in foreign aid for many years and getting little in return...so apparently it is legal.
