    You need to contact the insurance company for your employer and tell them pain ask if you ca go back to this doctor or another doctor. You only can go to doctors they say you can and only for treatment they allow. Otherwise, you may be stuck paying for the doctor's bill out of your own pocket. If they refuse to permit more medical treatment, you should contact an attorney who practices workers compensation law. The workers compensation insurance company should be paying you Temporary...

  2. Do I ignore attorney bills, or be proactive and file for fee arbitration? how do I do that in New Jersey and do I need a lawyer?

    Don't ignore it. If you cannot work out a solution with your current attorney, you can seek fee arbitration with a local fee arbitration committee in your county. This is a very cost way of getting both side heard and the attorney will have to justify his or her fees before a panel of attorneys and non-attorneys.

    It is possible, but we would have to speak in person confidentially to know more. You also may have grounds to appeal any denial of unemployment benefits, but there is a very limited time in which to appeal a denial of unemployment benefits. Feel free to contact my office.

    Unfortunately, you can't physically prevent someone from lying, in the appeal hearing (Appeals Tribunal), you can present your side of the story and present any evidence (such as documents and witnesses) that contradicts the employer's version of events.

    Best to file a complaint with the police department. Also check the city noise ordinance. Most towns in Jersey limit ordinary noise from 7 or 8 a.m. until 10 p.m.

    New Jersey mandates a 3-day right of attorney review. This is to give you time to consult an attorney who can review the contract and assist you in canceling or amending the contract to your satisfaction.

  7. Recorded phone conversation

    New Jersey does not prohibit a person involved in a conversation from recording that conversation. However, since you used the word "grievance," I suspect you are in a union and subject to a collective bargaining agreement. You would need to see that evidence is permitted to prove a grievance and consult your union rep.

    The answer might depend on whether the parking lot is provided by the employer that you were required to park in. If that is the case, even if you were "off the clock," you might be entitled to workers compensation benefits, regardless of what they told you. If not, you might be able to sue the owner of the parking lot if someone's negligence caused your accident. We would need to know more.

    If the employer stated this to other employees, there might be a question of slander. However, what once was considered a stigma to be considered gay, might not be the case anymore. Concerning employment law, if this accusation, perhaps combined with other employer behavior create a "hostile work environment" under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, due to actual or perceived sexual orientation, you might have a basis for a lawsuit or complaint with the New Jersey Division on Civil...

  10. Security Deposit

    Assuming you are talking about residential property and not commercial property, yes, 1.5 times monthly rent is the maximum security deposit permitted. The landlord also is required to notify you of the name of the bank where your security is on deposit and to pay you interest on the deposit held each year. Assuming she overcharged you with excess security deposit, you probably can demand that the excess amount be applied towards current or future rent. If she failed to follow any of the...
