Any hours i work over 40 my employer pays me in cash my regular hourly wage . im not receiving time and a half and it is also not being taxed
The federal and state overtime laws are fairly complicated. In simplest terms, if you work more than 40 hours a week, you are entitled to overtime pay at one and one half times the rate of your regular pay. However, this requirement is subject to numerous statutory exceptions - too many to list here. You should talk to an employment lawyer about this situation as soon as possible.See question
I live in Maine. Ex lives in Colorado. His wages are being garnished but he only works a seasonal part time job in a world class ski resort. His father set up a spendthrift trust fund, company located in NYC, for him with a LOT of money in it. ...
Depending on which state law applies, it may be possible for his distributions from the spendthrift trust to be attached to pay off the back child support. You would almost certainly need a lawyer in Maine to coordinate with a lawyer in NY or CO. Good luck with this!See question

We are a custom boatbuilding company, in business for 55 years. we are located in Maine. The boat is in Florida
Can we safely assume that the owner of the boat resides in Florida, not Maine? If so, although you can probably maintain a lawsuit in Maine because the claim arises out of a contract for work performed here, you will likely need a Florida court to enforce any legal remedy you obtain against the owner. Accordingly, you may be best served by hiring a Florida attorney to explore your legal options under Florida law. I wish you the best of luck with this case.See question
I was in two car crash on one greyhound trip. By the end of the time I got to Boston I had lost my baby. I had miscarriage. Grey hound has yet to do anything.
First of all, I am really sorry to hear about this. I know it sounds offensive, but if possible, Greyhound will almost certainly try to claim that your miscarriage was not caused by the crash. You should contact a Maine personal injury attorney to discuss this matter as soon as possible.See question

Yes, you still have a claim. Based on your short description, under Maine law the statute of limitations will expire in August 2020. Given that you have a pre-existing injury, your claim will likely be more difficult to resolve. You should consult with a Maine personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.See question
It was a $300,000 policy offer by one of our credit cards. I didn't know he was an alcoholic when I took this accident policy. Now they say it's excluded because of his intoxication. This all assumes that it hasn't been too long to try. I got t...
First of all, I am very sorry for your loss.
Whether or not the insurance company has an obligation to pay benefits will likely depend on whether there is an express exclusion for death due to intoxication in the policy. Your remaining time to contest this issue may be short - you should have a Maine attorney review the policy ASAP.See question

A lawyer would need to carefully examine all the facts involved in this case, but typically you are entitled to be paid for all the time you spend working for your employer. Based on the facts presented here, you may also have a whistleblower claim with respect to your termination. Wage and hour/whistleblower cases can be fairly complicated. You should definitely discuss this case with a lawyer soon.See question
