Legal Answers
10 Questions Answered

Q. I need to know if a person managing a motel is paid by the hour or on a day rate. This person is not an administrator.
A: How the employee is paid is a matter of agreement between the employer and the employee. State and Federal minimum wage requirements must be met but how the wage is calculated is not a firm matter of law.
Q. What steps can you take if a shady employer took down personal information during job interview?
A: Unless the employer is using your information for illegal purposes there is nothing you can do. Your information was provided to him voluntarily.
Q. In the criminal justice system does the burdon of proof fall on the defense attorney?
A: This depends on the situation. Generally the plaintiff, in this case the state must prove all elements of the alleged complaint. The burden may shift to the defense if proof is offered or there is an affirmative defense. I hope this helps.
Q. Can My spouse collect Alamony without it changing her SSDI
A: Yes, SSDI is not tied to resource availability. If your wife were receiving SSI the alimony would count as a resource and likely disqualify her from receiving benefits.
Q. Can my person or personal belongings be searched as a passenger on a commercial motor coach (bus)
A: This will depend on who is searching and why. Generally speaking you should not be searched on ground transportation by a civilian.
Q. I received bad check for work I did on someones house
A: You need to file a small claims court action to recover your funds and costs related to the bad check.
Q. Can a 20 yo that turns 21 in July date and have sexual relationship with a 16 who turns 17 the same day I'm Montana
A: Montana Code Annotated 45-5-503 discusses the penalties for sexual intercourse without consent. A minor does not have the capacity to consent legally so even if this is not forceful it would be what is termed statutory rape. I strongly suggest you avoid the chance of prosecution.
Q. I worked 2 jobs I got hurt and am rec. Temp partial disability but due to a domestic violence case quit the other job
A: This depends on how your employment ended. I suggest you contact a workers' compensation attorney to discuss your case. We are glad to help.
Q. Hurt my back on the job, and receiving workers' comp. My employer wants me to come back to work, what do I do?
A: Your doctor not your employer decides when you should return to work. I suggest you contact a California workers' compensation attorney because the law differs from state to state. If your doctor has released you, even to light duty, and the employer is ready for your return in Montana you would need to return to work or risk losing your wage loss benefits in the future.
