    Have you reported it to your insurance company? Depending upon your policy, your insurance company should be able to handle this matter. Otherwise, you will want to bring a small claims action against the company. However, if the repair isn't that much, you may just want fix it yourself because the time and money of bringing a lawsuit won't be worth it. Best of luck to you.

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    You may have a cause of action against your previous employer for its false statements. If you have evidence that your previous employer is making false statements you should consult a local employment law attorney to discuss your options. In any event, should you retain an attorney, he or she should be able to get your personnel file from your previous employer. Best of luck to you.

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    If you are unemployed due to no fault of your own, you may be eligible for unemployment insurance. If you were fired for just cause you may not qualify for benefits. Just cause includes, but is not limited to:

    Giving false information on a job application,
    Knowingly breaking an employer's rules,
    Unexcused absence or tardiness,
    Purposely damaging the employer's property,
    Refusal to obey employer instructions,
    Reporting to work under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol,
    Consuming drugs and/or alcohol on the job,
    Conduct that threatens the safety of others,
    Conviction and imprisonment for a serious crime, and
    Breach of a duty you owed your employer.

    If you get fired or let go, you should contact an employment law attorney to determine what options you have. Best of luck to you.

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    I'm sorry to hear this has happened to you. In Indiana your employment is at-will unless you have an employment contract. Being an at-will employee means that your employer could fire you for any reason, whether it's a good reason or bad reason. You may want to contact an Indiana employment lawyer to see what options you may have. If your employer fired for an illegal reason (something you have not asserted in the facts you stated), then you may have a cause of action. One thing to be mindful of is the fact that your employer may try to fight your unemployment. In that situation, make sure you save copies of those text messages or get written statements supporting your position. Otherwise, your employer may be successful in fighting your unemployment claim. Best of luck to you.

  • My company relocated me from Michigan to St. Louis in 8/2009. I signed a 2 year agreement, and left to go to another company.

    I left after 17 months. The contract only says that if I voluntarily resign or are terminated with cause under circumstances set forth below within 2 years of the effective date of employment in my position, I will have to repay the expenses. Th...

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    I agree with the previous answer. I'm somewhat confused with the inconsistent statements. Whether you have to repay the relocation benefits depends entirely on the language used in the contract. You may want to consult a local employment law attorney to review the contract for you. If there is an ambiguity in the contract, then you have a good argument for not having to repay anything. Best of luck to you.

  • I am on SSDI and have also received a modest inheritance. How can I invest money and not break any rules?

    I am 54 years and started receiving SSDI payments this year. This included a lump-sum back payment. I also received a modest inheritance from my father who passed in late 2010 and am a beneficiary of his trust which has already been paid to me in...

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    You should really consider contacting an attorney that handles Social Security cases. Any amount of money you receive could disqualify you from receiving monthly SSDI payments. Best of luck to you.

  • Methadone clinic accidentally overdosed me 3 times my amount and sent me to the hospital for a weekend, what should I do?

    They want to settle, how much should I ask for or what should I do?

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    I agree with the previous answer. You should consult a local personal injury attorney to ensure you are getting all that you are entitled to. Most personal injury attorneys will offer a free consultation so you don't have anything to lose. Best of luck to you.

  • Should I hire a lawyer and should I expected a pay out for the loss of a finger amputation to the first joint.

    I'm a salary management , so I'm getting paid, but should I recieve a lump sum for the loss of a finger tip, I'm not sure what to expect. Do I have to sue. Will they offer a pay out. This is a workmens comp. situation

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    I'm sorry to hear about the finger. There are essentially three types of benefits you can obtain in worker's compensation cases in the State of Indiana. These include: (1) temporary total disability benefits (benefits paid if you miss work-paid at 2/3 your average weekly wage); (2) permanent partial impairment rating (a lump sum payment you receive if your injury has a degree of permanency to it); and (3) medical expenses. You may want to contact a worker's compensation attorney for a free consultation. Many times the insurance carrier does not calculate the PPI rating correctly and/or rely upon a doctor's assignment that is incorrect. Best of luck to you.

  • Do I have a case?

    I was laid off through no fault of my own on 7-29-10 and paid severence through 11-29-2010 and was told I could job post for another job if one came up. First job posted December 2011 and I had 3 separate interviews with 3 different people includ...

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    I agree with the previous answer. They have no legal obligation to hire you back. You were laid off. They had the option to bring you back if they wanted to. Based upon the facts you presented, I can't tell whether there is any form of hiring discrimination going on. You may want to visit www.eeoc.gov for more information regarding hiring discrimination. Best of luck to you.

  • Does he have a case for defamation of character?

    My son worked for a company in Indiana. A deposit of $12,000 went missing. They 1st suspended him & went to suspended the Br MGR because they were the last 2 in the office that night. She called in sick the day they came to do the suspension, when...

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    I agree with the previous answer. I don't see defamation being a viable option. There has to be a false statement. Based upon what you have said I don't see that they were making any statements. It sounds like they suspected your son because he and another worker were the only two workers who could have stolen the money. I don't see where they are making a statement to anyone.

    With respect to the unemployment issue, I would suggest that if they deny his claim, he should appeal the decision. He may want to get an employment law attorney to handle his case. Best of luck.
