    can i get my money i rightfully worked for and get money for felling i had no other choise but to quit to get it to stop and should i have a lawyer to sue

    You should retain an employment law attorney to handle your case. Your employer is not permitted from taking deductions from your pay check because of cash register shortages. You need to file a wage claim, this is something you can do yourself, but it's probably best if you get an experienced employment law attorney. Let me know if you have any questions. Best of luck to you.

  • My employer made me buy him ephedrine pills and I told him I didn't want to. I will make sure you get your 50 cent raise

    He had bought his limit and they take your drivers license in Indiana. So he bullied me to do it.

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    I'm not sure what your question is. However, if you are asking what your options are if your employer tells you to engage in unlawful activity, I would tell you that you may have a case. Your case would be based upon state law that prohibits an employer from terminating an employee who refuses to engage in unlawful activity. Best of luck to you.

  • Do I need a lawyer in order to be able to keep working at my current place of employment?

    I work in a family style restaurant recently my workplace received a phone call stating they were lawyers representing someone that I had a check with. I investigated this claim and found out that they are a scam. My problem is that another manage...

    It sounds like a co-worker won't stop telling other people that you have a warrant out for your arrest. Do you? If you do, then there isn't a whole lot you can do to get the co-worker to stop. If it is false and you don't have an arrest warrant, then you should again ask the manager to put an end to it. If that doesn't work, then you could bring a defamation lawsuit against the co-worker. Best of luck to you.

  • Can I sue a mediator for malpractice?

    I am divorced in the state of Indiana. We were assigned a mediator to help with issues. In March of 2009, the mediator was going to modify child support to include college for our oldest. He prepared the modification but I wanted some changes ...

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    I agree with the two previous answers. In the situation at hand, the mediator has no liability, it simply was not his job to prepare documents or get them filed. That would be something that the parties' attorneys would be responsible for handling.

    I think you need to ask your attorney about the situation. Best of luck.

    I would agree with the previous answer. Ultimately, it depends whether you were eligible for FMLA leave because then your employer would have to return you to your past job. If you were merely on on company leave, maybe taking short term disability, then your employer would have no legal obligation to return you to your job. I would suggest contacting a local employment law attorney for a consultation. Best of luck to you.

    How many employees are employed at the company? Whether your wife has legal recourse depends on how many employees there are. For more information, I would suggest checking out the EEOC's website: www.eeoc.gov

  • Does an employer have the right to deny unemployment for not doing a pre-employment screening?

    After 11 years of employment my friend was fired for lying about having a diploma. He was denied unemployment. Shouldnt it have been the employers responsiblity to pre screen the application before hiring? I understand it was a legitimate reason f...

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    I agree with the previous answer. It seems unfair, but such things seldom are. He has nothing to lose in appealing unemployment. It sounds like there could be some other issues involved, namely, what was the real reason they terminated his employment? Best of luck to your friend.

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    I would probably need more facts to address your question. I think it may be worthwhile sitting down with an employment attorney to discuss your options. I would also suggest you visit the Indiana Department of Labor's Wage and Hour Division's website for additional information about filing a complant for unpaid wages. Best of luck to you.

    At the time I left the building their were 2 employees remaining in the bank. I have always left the building and taken checks across the street with only one employee in the bank. My branch manager was well aware of me taking the checks over and ...

    Nathaniel’s Answer

    I think you should have a sit down with an employment law attorney to discuss your options. A lot of it depends on what the company policy was and if it was actually enforced on a regular basis. However, keep in mind that unless you had an employment contract, your employment was at-will, which means they could fire you for any reason, good or bad. Best of luck to you.
