I was recently employed as a live in counselor for a camp with adults and children with disabilities. During the few months I was employed I never had any issues and was held in high regard. One afternoon I had a verbal argument with another cou...
Disability discrimination includes "perceived-disability discrimination" which is when employer regards employee as disabled when employee is not disabled. I am not saying you have a perceived-disability discrimination claim, I am saying the issue of whether you have a viable disability-discrimination claim is something a lawyer can help you evaluate. The fact that you were held against your will in a psychiatric ward is something else again, especially if the psych ward did not comply with the law, which is something I am not able to evaluate on the basis of the facts you describe.See question
My fiancé was just terminated last night via text message, while I am aware Vermont is an "at will" state, this woman (who owns the company and schedules all employees) asked him if he was working today (she's the one who is supposed to tell him w...
I see no obstacle in principle to terminating an at-will employee by text message, email, Western Union telegraph, United States mail, message left on voicemail or answering machine, or any other method of communication. The method of communication really doesn't matter. What matters is the message, i.e., that the employee term of employment has come to an end.
The law does not require employers to act wisely or justly. They are free to act foolishly and unjustly, so long as they do not violate the law.See question

In some circumstances the State can assert a lien against the decedent's property to recoup Medicaid benefits it paid on the decedent's behalf. See http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/how-medicaid-recovers-the-cost-long-term-care-from-your-estate-after-you-die.htmlSee question
My landlord has asked for allergies after occupying the property for two years. I should not have to provide personal medical information according to HIPAA do I ?
HIPAA regulates what health care providers may do with your personally identifiable information. It does not address your choice to disclose or not disclose information about your health to your landlord.See question

Here is the notice against trespass statute:
And here is the relevant portion of the statute:
§ 3705. Unlawful trespass
(a)(1) A person shall be imprisoned for not more than three months or fined not more than $500.00, or both, if, without legal authority or the consent of the person in lawful possession, he or she enters or remains on any land or in any place as to which notice against trespass is given by:
(A) actual communication by the person in lawful possession or his or her agent or by a law enforcement officer acting on behalf of such person or his or her agent;
(B) signs or placards so designed and situated as to give reasonable notice; or
(C) in the case of abandoned property:
(i) signs or placards, posted by the owner, the owner's agent, or a law enforcement officer, and so designed and situated as to give reasonable notice; or
(ii) actual communication by a law enforcement officer.
---end of excerpted statute---
The key language is "person in lawful possession." In the case of an apartment rented to a tenant, that means the tenant. A tenant holds the right to exclude others from his apartment. If you were a tenant you would be furious if your landlord tried to tell you you could not have a particular person over as a guest, right. So in an apartment building with twenty apartments, if nineteen people want someone excluded from the property, but the twentieth person considers him an honored house guest, that twentieth person can have him come visit. And everyone at the building has the right to use the common areas such as the driveway, etc. So you understand the logic of what you've been told.See question
I sent a parcel with tons of clothes and toys for my goddaughter and the weight was 37 pounds or 16.8 kg. When it got to customs and released, the weight became 13.565 kg, which is ~3.3 kg less. I did some research and found out that the theft i...
Where would you sue them, United States or Russia? If the answer is "United States," how would the court in the United States acquire jurisdiction over the Russian postal service? Would Russian law apply? It's in Russia, so probably the law of Russia would apply. If you obtained a judgment, how would you enforce it? I.e., how would you get the money? These are just a few of the questions that your inquiry here calls to mind.See question

Don't be fooled by the adjectives used to describe the claim. A "products liability claim" is one in which an injured person may be able to recover from the manufacturer, the distributor, or the retailer of a product that harmed them. A "personal injury claim" describes a claim in which someone is injured through the fault of another, be it a person or a business. The term "bodily injury" usually refers to a triggering event for insurance coverage on the part of the entity against whom the claim has been made. The fact that you are confused by the labels indicates to me that you need legal advice from a lawyer who practices in Texas. Remember that the plaintiff always has to prove every element of the claim by a preponderance of the evidence, which means "more likely than not."
I don't practice law in Texas. Consult a lawyer who handles personal injury claims in Texas to obtain legal advice you can rely on.See question

Imagine how the work of the courts would grind to a halt if litigants in family court cases could call as witnesses to what transpired in the courtroom judges who decided controversies at earlier stages of the proceedings. The judges would be at the mercy of the former litigants. Just.... no. In any event, pro se litigants do not have the independent power to subpoena witnesses. Lawyers subpoena witnesses by virtue of their power as officers of the court. Pro se litigants, by contrast, are not officers of the court, and must submit subpoenas to the clerk of the court for approval. The clerks, in turn, are overseen by the judges. So don't even think about trying to subpoena the judge.See question
