  • Can my employer stop me from quitting without giving 30 days notice as my contract states?

    Stephen’s Answer

    This sounds like an odd arrangement. You are entitled to payment that you have performed under your contract. You need to speak with a lawyer soon as there are implications other than payment, such as failure of your employer to pay minimum wage requirements. Without actually seeing the language of the contract firsthand, it might be somewhat tough to opine on what actually is/could happen.

  • Do I have a case?

    Stephen’s Answer

    Was there an incident report? If so, be sure to give this to a personal injury lawyer when you contact them. It is certainly worthwhile to contact a personal injury lawyer to investigate. One of the issues you will have is what is called the standard of care. A personal injury attorney will know how to determine if the defendant breached the standard of care.

    Contact an attorney immediately. Typically someone who deals in contract law can give you advice. You will need counsel on what to do with respect to the judgment and any potential ways to have it set aside.

  • I hurt my back last year at my old job and I just re-injured it at my new job. Is the second injury covered by worker’s comp?

    Stephen’s Answer

    Meet with a work comp or personal injury attorney ASAP. The biggest issue will be whether your injuries/symptoms are related to the new accident. Once the carrier for your new job finds out about the previous injury, they will most likely point to that as the cause of your problems. You'll need a lawyer to argue that the new injury is distinguishable from the old. Also, as with any work comp claim, its good to have an attorney review all of the facts to determine if you have another cause of action, such as a civil suit.

  • Do I need a lawyer to look over my work contract?

    Stephen’s Answer

    You need to contact an attorney immediately. Typically, contracts are governed by the language contained in the document itself. Be sure to retain a copy of the contract and other evidence documenting the rate of pay you believe you are entitled to.
