Legal Answers
42 Questions Answered
Q. How can i sue my employer for racist comment, sexual comments, and they basically pushed me to quit
A: Remember your employer needs to have at least 5-15 employees depending on physical location for them to qualify for jurisdiction of discrimination laws. You are welcome to contact me.
Q. I'm a 1099 contractor of service, I recently refused to sign a non compete, now client refuses to pay. What can I do?
A: This is a concern. You worked the hours in question and the non-comp was not a part of the agreement.
Q. What is a Motion for miscellaneous relief Joint MOTION Suspend Scheduling Order to Suspend all Unexpired Deadlines
