    You should speak with an employment attorney about your rights. You may have been misclassified as an independent contractor and may have recourse against your employer. Commonly, where employers misclassify their employees, other wage violations can be found.

  • My ex Boss was a tyrant who should be locked up in jail.

    Hi, I worked for this man taking care of his 86 year old wife for six weeks, too long. While I worked there, he treated everyone like trash especially anyone who wasn't white. When his wife had to go to the hospital, he treated the staff worse ...

    Alan’s Answer

    Attorney Keleher makes an excellent point that there may be claims here unrelated to the damage to your car. How did this man pay you? When you say "he treated the staff", do you mean the staff at the hospital or did he have a staff of people who worked for him? Were you the only person working for him? How did you start working for him in the first place? You should take the time to talk to a lawyer about the circumstances of your work for this man. A lawyer can help you ascertain what, if any, claims you may have as a result of this experience.

  • I settle my case with workers compensation, i applied for unemployement benefits and was denied on my alt period, what can i do

    UI said that i do not qualify even on my alternate base period. i was getting workers comp during the year that i said i was not eligible what can i do about it

    Alan’s Answer

    To collect unemployment, you must be actively seeking work. To collect workers comp, you must be disabled and unable to work. Normally it's a contradiction to claim for unemployment and worker's comp at the same time but there are some situations where it's possible. I don't know enough about your situation - how were you injured, what kind of job did you have? - to give you a more detailed answer. You should talk to a lawyer about your specific situation to better understand your rights.
