    It is really hard for me to provide you an answer without seeing the independent contractor agreement. Your options are provided for and based upon the language of the agreement. I would suggest that you contact an employment lawyer for a consultation. The lawyer will want to read the agreement and will be able to map out your options. Best of luck to you.

    I would recommend a general practice attorney. You need to determine what you insurance policy covers. After consulting with an attorney, he or she should be able to tell you what options you have. The attorney would want to send a demand letter to the insurance company. If that doesn't work, your only other option would be to file a lawsuit. I'm not sure how much money you are out as a result of the fire but you will most likely have to pay your attorney a retainer. Best of luck to you.

    I completely agree with the previous answer. There are certain actions you can take should an employer fail or refuse to pay you. Has this happened yet or was your ex-manager just saying it would happen. If you don't receive your last paycheck on the corresponding day, then you should take legal action. You can either contact an employment law attorney to handle everything for you, or you can contact the Indiana Department of Labor's Hour and Wage Division for more information about filing a...

    Considering the fact that you have an attorney, I am limited in my ability to address your question. If you have concerns, you should contact your attorney. That being said, it all depends on whether they are disputing your claim. Your attorney knows the facts and is in a better position to address your inquires. Best of luck.

  5. Can I re-open a civil case against my former employer after the case has been settled? My lawyer worked against my case.

    On what grounds do you seek to challenge the settlement agreement and release? Are you claiming that your attorney somehow forced you to sign the settlement agreement and release? You clearly sound upset with how the case was handled, what happened during the settlement process? Do you think you could have gotten a better settlement? If you are seeking to reopen your case, you would have to challenge the settlement agreement and release. You could do so if you were somehow forced into entering...

  6. I fell and broke the humerous bone in my left arm while at work. Surgery was done 4 weeks ago. They had to insert a metal plate

    I agree with the previous answer. In sum, if an employer accommodates an employee's work restrictions, the employee must not refuse reasonable accommodations. If your pain gets progressively worse throughout the workday, make sure you notify your employer and keep the treating physician in the loop. The difficult thing about returning to work in your situation is that the work you are limited to doing can be quite boring and you may get the feeling that you are not being treated fairly. Keep...

  7. Can am employer fire me because I had to go on medical leave?

    The question is whether you were entitled to FMLA leave. If you were entitled to FMLA leave, then the question becomes whether or not you exhausted your FMLA leave. You only have a total of 12 weeks of FMLA in a given year. If you have exhausted your FMLA leave, there really isn't anything protecting your job. The employer does not have to hold your job forever. It's a tough situation and it varies from employer to employer...some employers have different policies and might provide job...

    I would strongly suggest that you sit down with an attorney to address this issue because of the serious implications. There are a lot of details that need to be addressed before you make the call one way or another.

    Indiana is an at-will employment state. This means that an employer can terminate an employee for any reason, whether it is a good reason or a bad reason. However, an employer cannot terminate an employee for an illegal reason. So to answer your question, yes, there are exceptions to the general "at-will" doctrine. However, the question that I have is whether you were an employee at-will or whether your employment was based upon a written contract. If it is contractual, then you have to...

    I agree with the previous answers. Get a worker's compensation attorney and don't let your boss play games with your life. Remember, it's illegal for an employer to interfere with your attempts to exercise your rights under the Indiana Worker's Compensation Act. Best of luck to you.
