    Is the loan obligation in writing? If so, you probably have a strong case. If your claim is for $5,000 or less you can utlize WA's small claims court system. Here is a link with more info: http://www.courts.wa.gov/newsinfo/resources/?altMenu=smal&fa=newsinfo_jury.scc

    The simple answer is no, there aren't any legal guidelines that mandate the use of sick time. Sick time, like vacation time, is a matter of policy developed and enforced by the company. You should consult your employee handbook to see what the sick leave policy allows and doesn't allow.

    For anyone to give you guidance on this case they will need more facts. However, if as you state you were fired in retaliation for filing an EEOC complaint, you may have a case worth pursuing. However, this is a long and complicated process and you will need a top-notch WA employment lawyer to guide you through this process. Here is a list of the top Avvo-rated employment lawyers.

  7. Under WA law can a person sue a company for trespassing when they enter your home without authorization

    Answered over 5 years ago.

    This is a tough one to answer without more facts. How would any company trespass without authorization? Did your kids let them in? That may be authorized entry.

If, however, a company with whom you have no relationship burst into your house causing extensive damage, then you may have a...

  8. KY criminal or civil liability for opening other peoples mail

    Answered over 5 years ago.

    We are not in KY yet which is probably why no one has replied to you. I am not a KY lawyer, but I am a lawyer (and the CEO of Avvo) and I want to offer some general thoughts regarding your question. You are correct that it is illegal to open someone else's mail. However, if that person authorizes you to open it, then you are fine. If you are worried about anyone claiming that you are not authorized to open your son's email, you can solve this by getting his authorization in writing.

    Could you re-post your question with more specificity? It is hard to understand what you are asking. Most lawyers are more than happy to meet with clients (or potential clients) at their office.

    Oregon is a key market for Avvo and we expect to be there sometime next year. Combined with the feedback we’ve received from lawyers and consumers that they wanted more opportunities to upload content (such as cases and questions/answers), we decided to prioritize these features over launching in new states. Thanks for your interest in Avvo. Hang in there - we will be in Oregon soon! Mark CEO, Avvo p.s. Good luck to your Ducks!!
