    It's always best to have an attorney during this process. The appeals tribunal will be looking at very specific legal findings in determining whether or not to grant your appeal. You should also speak to an attorney regarding a possible race discrimination claim against your former employer.

    There is no statute of limitations, that I'm aware of, for arrest records. If your arrest in East Point was dismissed, you may be able to have the arrest expunged i.e. removed from your record. Having the arrest expunged is the only way to keep it from showing up on a background check.

    If her insurance was cancelled at the time of the collision because she wasn't paying, you will not be able to get your car fixed through her insurance company. You should file your claim with your car insurance company (assuming you have collision coverage). You could file a magistrate (small claims) suit against her, but as one attorney mentioned, if she has no insurance or assets, you may not be able to collect on your judgment if you win. Call the magistrate court clerk's office in the...

  5. Is it legal in the state of Georgia for an employer to enforce *mandatory / **selective overtime if an employee is hourly pay?

    In Georgia, there are no laws regulating the amount of hours worked each day for workers 18 years of age or older. As long as your employer is paying overtime, if you are required by law to receive overtime pay, your employer is not breaking the law. If you are a member of a union, you should contact your union representative. There may be an agreement between the union and your employer requiring the employer to limit the amount of overtime hours worked.

    It's hard to say what your rights are without additional facts. The statute of limitations (time limit for bringing a lawsuit) may have run out on some, if not all, of your claims. The only way to know for sure is to contact an attorney to discuss your case in more detail. I would be happy to assist.

  8. Can two Dui's be expunged from my record for a price?

    In Georgia, an individual may qualify for record expungement if the individual was "released by the arresting agency without such offense being referred to the prosecuting attorney for prosecution" or if the charges were dismissed by the prosecutor. OCGA 35-3-37(d)(1). Based on the fact that you were convicted of DUI, you would not qualify for expungement in Georgia. You would need to contact an attorney in Pennyslvania to determine the likelihood of your arrest being expunged there.

  9. Do I have a case for a Discrimination Lawsuit?

    There is no law that prevents an employer from demoting you without any warning. However, if you believe your demotion is due to your age and gender, you must file a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) before you can bring a lawsuit against your employer. Contact an employment discrimination attorney to discuss your rights.

    Even if you do have claims against the teenager's parents, you will not get paid what you are owed from this claim any faster than if you just went after the teenager. Lawsuits take a lot of time and money regardless of who you sue.
