I work from home and my boss told me that I cannot have my child at home while I am working from home. Is this legal?
The employer sets the terms of employment. It is legal for them to require that your children are not at home while you are working unless you have evidence that this demand was based on illegal discrimination.See question

Your boyfriend needs to retain an employment lawyer so they can get more facts and review all of the relevant employer documents and policies. It is, as most areas of law, very complicated and varies case by case.
He should do some research so he gets an understanding of the complications and then retain the attorney. Here are a few overviews to understand the complexity http://www.hrmorning.com/flsa-2/ and http://www.employmentlawhandbook.com/flsa/fair-labor-standards-act-when-on-call-time-is-recognized-as-hours-worked/.See question
My father and i are joint beneficiaries on the will and trust, but he is trying to control everything.
Your post does not have enough facts to understand the issues and possible rights.
You say you and your father are joint beneficiaries. Do you mean to say that your grandmother's will provided that the assets were to be split equally between you two? You then say your father is trying to control everything. So was your father appointed as the personal representative (PR)? If so, then he has some measure of discretion to determine the administration of the estate but he must follow the distribution terms. The PR has fiduciary duties on administration which includes providing an accounting.
You can ensure that the PR is complying with their duties and that you get what was left to you by hiring a probate attorney. That or learn the law and probate procedure and exercise your rights.See question
I'm writing a screenplay and wanted to fact check for the legal circumstances WITHIN the story. I have characters fighting over inheritance of farmland and there is no will. Would there be any reason that a decedent's property would NOT go to a sp...
Answers on this site are not legal advice. We provide general information.
As to your question, the general information is that yes there are reasons that the decedent's property would not go to the spouse or children. It could go to distant relatives depending on who survives the decedent. Read the statutes under 15-11-103 to understand what happens.See question
My father passed a year ago. His wife, my stepmother, was the benificiary in the will, but in the will all property was in a trust that had her kids and his kids splitting things up. However, she had gone and quit claimed property, changed bank a...
You say that the property was "in trust." That is the critical issue point here and a probate attorney will need to review that language to understand what the trust was to do and how those assets were distributed. Depending on the language, the stepmother may have violated those terms. It is impossible to know without reviewing the will.
Start contacting probate attorneys so they can review all the documents and consider options.See question
I live in an apartment and they had a construction crew here redoing the coral for the dumpsters. They put one dumpster in the coral, but not the other one. It was really windy and the wind blew the dumpster into my car, breaking the mirror and ...
So you don't have insurance comprehensive insurance for this kind of damage? If not, that is unfortunate.
There is no simple law to point to that says X party is responsible. This becomes an issue of negligence and that includes your possible errors in this, depending on the facts. It is not simple as I am sure you wanted to hear.
You asked the apartment and they refuse. You can now ask the construction company. They may also refuse. They know that you will have to spend the time and money to sue them So contact the construction company and try to get them to pay. if they refuse, then file a small claims lawsuit (assuming this is under $7500, which must be the case) with both of them as defendants and maybe then they will resolve this. If not, then you learn the law, prepare for the hearing, hopefully win and then try to collect. Good luck.See question

A neighbor said they smelled smoke coming from my apartment. But I do not smoke so they could never have even seen me with a cigarette or anything else I got a termination letter can they evict me for He Say she say
You need to be specific on what you received and if you have a lease or if you are now month-to-month.
If you are month-to-month, they are free to terminate you with no less than eight days notice (unless the lease requires a longer period). They don't need evidence to do that. You call this a termination letter so that sounds like a notice of termination as I describe. That is not an eviction at all and they are free to terminate your month-to-month for any reason other than illegal discrimination.
If you, however, are in a current lease, that is another story. They would then have to evict you and that is started by a three-day notice to comply or quit. Then you can show that you have complied and then fight this at the hearing.
So you need to be specific but it sounds like a notice of termination of a month-to-month tenancy.See question

I am sorry about the problems, but your recourse is against your step son. The second you signed the loan you agreed to be liable and they will go after you for every penny. You could talk to a bankruptcy attorney to see about options but most loans are not dischargeable in bankruptcy. Good luck.See question

If you don't show up they will get what they requested by default. So answer the complaint and show up for the hearing unless you can come to an agreement.
Almost all medical bills include provisions that they can get their attorney fees. So ask them to explain how they came up with the amount but, frankly, another $250 in legal expenses is really nothing. In short, if you owe the money and have no defenses, you should consider settling with them as the legal fees will just keep going up.See question
