Q. Because of coronavirus is it a favorable time for some one to turn them self in over a probation violation ?
A: A lawyer cannot counsel you to fail to turn yourself over to authorities. I tell all of my clients charged with violation of probation the following: (a) promptly turn yourself over to police and (b) continue reporting to your probation officer, even after being violated. This advice may figure in your favor when your attorney is negotiating with the prosecutor or if you have to face the judge at a probation violation hearing.
Q. Hello I just been Discharged from work not even knowing why.HR said I was not punching the clock right its been down
A: It seems that there are two issues here: (1) whether your employer violated the law in firing you and (2) whether they violated the law by allegedly failing to credit you your PTO time. The answer to both is: I don't know - I would need to know more facts. With respect to Number (1), most people are surprised to learn that firing an employee in Tennessee - even for bad reasons - is generally legal unless it falls under a handful of exceptions, including discrimination based on race, gender or another protected category; violation of the Tennessee Public Protection Act; or violation of a provision of a written contract between you and your employer, if one exists. I recommend you call an employment law attorney and request a free 30-minute consultation to discuss your situation. ... Read More
Q. I had a verbal contract to design a simple website for friend, didn't pay the other half for the service .
A: Based on what you have described, you may have a valid and enforceable contract. Whether or not it is a good idea for you to file a lawsuit to recover the unpaid amount depends on a number of factors. First, how much does he owe you? If you file a lawsuit in general sessions court you will be taxed with the filing fees and service of process fees. You will also have to take a day off work to appear for your trial. In addition, there may be issues relating to proving your breach of contract claim. My recommendation to you for the future is to have all your clients sign a written contract before you begin work (at least if the amount is $500.00 or greater).
