  • Was terminated from my potions, found out upper management told an hourly employee, and hourly told others in work place.

    Wanting to know if I have a case to get anything thing from company? I brought it up to the HR at employees but has not done anything for the past week, I have statement from another hourly stating that was said from the one management told.

    Robert’s Answer

    Your statement doesn't relate what was said. If there were false, defamatory statements made about you to third parties, you may have been the victim of defamation of character. The correct practice area would be "Libel & Slander".

    There probably aren't any laws directly addressing your question, as far as statutes, ordinances, or regulations. It would probably be under the category of "contract law". It's best to keep your accounting straight, of course. For one thing, your payment would probably be deductible for tax purposes. If you consult an attorney (which you probably should), there might be questions about further details of the circumstances. Specifically, it is unclear what the status of your former brokerage is. It might make a difference. Your accountant might be able to address your issues.

    There is a cause of action for invasion of privacy, public disclosure of private information, etc. If you chose to sue about something like that, though, you have the burden of proving by a preponderance of the evidence every element of your cause of action, including the extent of your damages, which in your case may be de minimus.

    Robert’s Answer

    Usually, to challenge an action of an administrative agency decision, you must exhaust your avenues of appeal within the agency, then if you go to Superior Court, you have to prove the decision was "arbitrary and capricious". The "Find a Lawyer" function on this website might be useful. Look under "Administrative Law".

  • If an unsworn statement as an exhibit was not objected by the other party does

    that mean it is considered admissible evidence and should be relied upon? This is a family law case.

    Robert’s Answer

    Written statement usually have to be sworn. Out of court statements are usually considered "hearsay" and inadmissible, but there are many exceptions to the hearsay rule. See Title 8 of the Evidence Rules. https://www.courts.wa.gov/court_rules/?fa=court_rules.list&group=ga&set=ER. Questions about a statement's authenticity or credibility might go the weight of the evidence rather than its admissibility.
