5 Questions Answered
- Q. Can a lawyer represent employer in two separate cases from same individual while one is under investigation is it legal
- A: The question you are asking is whether it is a conflict of interest for the Employer's attorney to represent the Employer in two separate proceedings, both of which involve the same Employee. This is relatively common in my experience. Without more, it would seem to me that this would not be a conflict of interest, and therefore it is likely entirely legal.
- Q. I was terminated on the day that I was supposed to start due to me refusing to go to work with COVID like symptoms.
- A: You were likely entitled to emergency sick leave pursuant to the Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA). If you were terminated because you were experiencing symptoms and seeking a medical diagnosis, you may have a legal claim against your employer.
- Q. My employer refused me to return to work due to my school schedule. They told me to resign when I did not wan to
- A: Generally, when you resign voluntarily you do not qualify for unemployment insurance. However, under these circumstances, you could still file a claim. If your employer does not contest your claim, you will likely receive unemployment benefits. If the employer does contest your claim, you could request a hearing before the Dept of Labor. If you can prove that you were forced to resign or that you resigned under duress, the Dept of Labor may grant you your claim. You would need to establish that this was a forced resignation and not purely voluntary. Speak with a local attorney as soon as possible.
