I show up at job interviews, and companies deny me the job - despite saying that I'm a great fit based on my resume, and they liked my answers at the interview. I can be interviewing for the exact same job I had before, and companies will still de...
I'm sorry to hear about your difficulties.
If you can prove that you were denied a specific employment opportunity because of a legally protected trait, such as your race or gender, then that would be actionable. However, as the plaintiff you bear the burden of proving such an allegation. You cannot prevail on a discrimination claim simply because you "believe" your employer discriminated. You need actual evidence, and unfortunately evidence can sometimes be hard to come by since employers don't have to be transparent with the reasoning behind their hiring decisions.
As for which allegation "works best" from a legal standpoint, that question does not make sense to me. Whatever works best is what you can prove. It's highly unlikely that an employer would discriminate against you because of race, AND gender, AND disability AND other legally protected traits as well. It's much more believable that they were prejudiced against you for ONE particular reason rather than to allege that the employer is a bigot in every imaginable way. The best approach is not to throw everything at the wall and see what sticks. It's to make specific, credible accusations that are supported by actual evidence.
I wish you luck.See question
I have a pending case against a major corporation for work-related harassment. The EEOC recently issued a Right to Sue letter and prior to that, determined Probable Cause. The company refused mediation and refused several contact attempts. I am s...
The employer's unwillingness to negotiate at this very early stage in your case probably has nothing to do with your attorney. Obviously, you want an attorney who is qualified and respected, but what you have described does not suggest otherwise. Good luck to you.See question
My twin brother and his wife have been estranged from our family for over twenty years. From time to time they try to tell anyone that will listen these wicked falsities about me and my other siblings. This time, they are using the internet alon...
A long, public and expensive court battle is rarely the answer in these situations. Furthermore, without any actual financial losses stemming from the false statements that have been made about you (i.e. the loss of a job) it is unlikely that you have the damages necessary to substantiate a claim. Matters like these are best resolve on an interpersonal level. I wish you the very best.See question
I have a Pre-Employment Medical Inquiry situation as a union employee for an Environmental Specialist position with the City of Los Angeles. I would be transferring classifications and my promotion is in flux after negative medical lab results, w...
You have tagged your question as relating to malpractice. However, the doctor who examined you has no duty to return results in time for your promotion. Therefore, this is not a issue that suggests medical malpractice. This is a union issue and, as such, is something that only your union rep can help you with. You can also try contacting the medical office to politely remind them that this is a time sensitive matter for you. Good luck.See question
I have a settlement offer letter from the attorney of my old employer. I was wondering if someone could do a free review to be sure I am not getting the short end. I am a little worried about some of the language.
You should absolutely have the settlement offer reviewed by an attorney. However, you probably won't find an attorney willing to render professional services to you for free. Would you go into an accountant's office and ask them to do your taxes for free? Many lawyers will review your settlement agreement and advise you whether to sign it for a reasonable flat fee. I would consider making use of such a service. Best wishes to you.See question
Several months back. I was Eating a Burrito from El Pollo Loco, I took two bites and Crunch! Cracked my tooth on plastic cap, from a handheld sour cream dispenser, left behind by employee.(Kinda like a caulking gun cap) It was weeks before my wedd...
Did you report the incident to El Pollo Loco at the time it happened? If you didn't, and if several months have now passed (long after any surveillance footage would have typically been deleted), you may not have any way of proving what happened. It is also unclear what dental expenses you incurred and, therefore, how severe your damages actually are. I would consult with some local personal injury attorneys, but I think that proving liability will be difficult and the damages may not be substantial enough to warrant the investment of time and money into litigation. Of course, other attorneys may disagree. I wish you luck.See question
My daughter was recently in her first car accident. The guy who hit her apologized at the scene for not even looking before he left from the stop sign. My daughter was already in the middle of the intersection when he hit her. He told the officer ...
It's frustrating, but the insurance company is not legally obligated to agree with you or the police officer as to who is at fault. In fact, the police officer's opinion regarding fault will be completely inadmissible in a civil lawsuit.
The sad reality is that insurance companies make money by denying claims and paying as little as they possible can on claims where they accept liability. If your daughter is unrepresented, which I assume is the case since you are posting here, the insurance company is probably not taking her seriously because they know that her only option if they deny the claim is to file a lawsuit and she cannot do that competently on her own.
Simply put, your daughter needs an attorney. An attorney may cause the insurance company to re-evaluate its position on liability. If that doesn't happen, the attorney can file a lawsuit on your daughter's behalf. Retaining an attorney is the only logical next step here.
Good luck to you and your daughter.See question
We have to October 24th to file a lawsuit
Start calling attorneys today. Attorneys are ethically prohibited from soliciting potential clients so you will not receive offers of representation by posting here. Best of luck to you.See question
There was a change of leadership and my new supervisor didn't mesh well with the arrangement. Due to her constant micromanaging, I started having anxiety attacks at work. I thought she was really being helpful especially because I was ill. But the...
This sounds very unfortunate but does not suggest any violation of the law as it is not illegal to micromanage or to share information about your employment status with third parties. It also is not illegal to retaliate against you for complaining about this conduct. You have tagged your post for the practice area "libel," however nothing in your post suggests that a false statement of fact was transmitted about you in writing to a third party. Perhaps there are additional facts.
I wish you luck.See question
I was at red light a cement truck hit me straight into my drivers door
You would sue the driver and owner of the cement truck. If the owner is a government entity, you typically have 6 months within which you need to notify the government entity of your claim. You should retain a personal injury attorney immediately.
