    You really need to speak to an attorney to get the best possible advice for your specific situation. There are ways to prove you have an ownership interest in the LLC. Even in the absence of an operating agreement, Pennsylvania law has a statutory scheme pertaining to the management of an LLC. It is possible to dissolve an LLC. These questions, and many more, arise in the context of a minority squeezeout, such as you have described. You should get an attorney to assist you in this complicated area.

    When an attorney who declines to take your case tells you to seek legal advice "immediately" it is the attorney's way of letting you know that all claims are subject to a statute of limitations, or a deadline for filing. The attorney is encouraging you to hire an attorney as soon as possible to protect your legal rights, whatever they may be.

    That certainly is outrageous and unlawful behavior. Assuming that the employment is in Pennsylvania, the employee has various protections under state law. I would recommend that the employee contact an employment law attorney, or the Pennsylvania Department of Labor.

    I can see how this would be frustrating, but it is not illegal for your boss to keep you out of the loop. If you are being subjected to disparate treatment as a result of discrimination, such as racial or gender bias, then you would have a potential claim.

    There are numerous issues that a qualified attorney would have to review in order to give you a clear picture of the potential enforceability of your non-compete. That said, there is some case law that supports your view that a non-compete may not be enforced against an employee who has been terminated by the employer. It all depends upon the circumstances of the termination and the threshold question is whether the non-compete is necessary for the protection of the employer's business. I...

    The written statements are hearsay. Your question does not specify the type of hearing that is occurring. But unless the rules of of procedure for the hearing permit a party to offer hearsay evidence, the written statements will be inadmissible. If the hearing is important enough, you may want to cinsider taking the depositions of the physicians for use at the hearing.

    If you resign for "compelling and necessitous" reasons, you are eligible for unemployment. What constitutes "compelling and necessitous" reasons is decided on a case by case basis.

    For someone who is interested in keeping your claim out of the public eye, you have a funny way of showing it. Avvo is a public forum. In my opinion, it would be very unlikely to successfully keep your claim under seal based solely upon the likelihood of the company's embarrassment and/or public outrage. You may want to consider using private arbitration as a mechanism for determining your claim. With regard to your question about the US Attorney's Office taking action on a federal...
