    If there was no action taken on the account all these years, they have no rights. However, if they had sued you and obtained a judgment they may still have rights. You should request this information from them. Ask them to see the original debt that they are attempting to collect. If they cannot show it to you or it is the same debt you are speaking of, they may have no rights at all. Consult with an attorney in your state to determine the above.

    Generally, your employer may not hold you responsible for negligent mistakes, such as something like you metioned above. However, your emplyer may hold you responsibile if your act was willful, meaning, intentional, or could be considered gross negligence.

    If the company won't settle, your only other option is to go to court. You may be required to go all the to trial. Find an aggressive lawyer who is not afraid to go to court. If the case has not been filed, you should consult an attorney immediately.

    Jason’s Answer

    I am assuming you are talking about your security deposit. A landord must return your deposit within 21 days of moving out. The landlord then must provide you an accurate accounting of what was deducted. You are not responsible for pre-existing or damages that did not arise out of normal wear and tear. He may only charge what is fair and reasonable for the required repairs. You may want to take him or her to small claims court.

  • How long can a collection company attempt to collect a debt?

    I received a call last night from a company and I told them that card was paid off and I was told this was a debt from 1997!!!!13 years ago!! Is there not a limit on how long they can come after you?

    Jason’s Answer

    There is generally a statute of limitations on debt collection. There are many unscrupolous debt collectors who will attempt to collect a debt that is too old to legally collect. It happens all the time. On open ended accounts, like a credit card, the statute is for four years.

    This may be considered retaliation if the facts as presented are true. However, if you are pregnant and there were valid reasons to reprimand you, there is no action.

  • Do I have to pay taxes on a settlement check?

    I was fired after telling my boss I was 5 months pregnant. I sued them and we ended settling out of court. Do I have tp pay taxes on that check?

    Jason’s Answer

    This is a federal tax question and given recent developments you should consult a tax attorney. the basic gist of the law is as follows:
    1. A party with an employment generally has to report the settlement as income
    2. You may then claim a deduction for attorney fees.
    3. Some of what you are awarded are wages, which is directly taxable.

    Consult a tax professions regarding this question. For employment cases, it is very different than it is for personal injury cases.

    In order to have a valid cause of action you need to be able to prove the following: duty, breach of the duty, causation for the injuries and damages. First, since this was a premises liability case, duty/notice is not easy to prove. There are many defenses available to these cases, but I digress.

    The issue in your case is damages. If you are able to prove the first three elements, what would you plead for damages. Damages are generally quantified by your economic or tangible damages. Here, there are none. You may still be entitled to an award of pain and suffering but it always difficult to determine that amount.

    If you received workers compensation benefits and the accident was connected to your benefits, yes, you must disclose. They may have a right to reimbursement. Consult with an attorney regarding this.

  • Is it legal for a private practice Doctor to not pay his employees on their scheduled payday?

    This Doctor continues to tell his employees, the day befor payday, that he can not pay them this week.

    Jason’s Answer

    The answer is no he cannot do that. He is in violation of multiple labor laws. There are immediate remedies available to you. You should either contact an attorney who works in this field or file a complaint with the Cal. Labor Commissioner.
