    If you were terminated and believe it was wrongful termination, you have a certain amount of time to protect your rights. You can pursue either state or federal laws to help you. This answer is only looking at the state level, not federal. You do not say when you were terminated, but you generally have one (1) year from the last date of adverse action to file a state claim with Department of Fair Employment and Housing. Go to www.dfeh.ca.gov. There, the instructions on what to do are easy to follow and read. If you do not file your state claim with the DFEH within one (1) year, then your options become limited. After you have filed your state claim, you will get information from the DFEH. Read what they send you.

  • I was turned down for a job for not having a master's degree.

    Is it illegal to require that a job applicant, who is otherwise qualified, hold a particular degree unless there is a law which requires holders of the job to hold the degree or to hold a license for which the degree is a prerequisite.

    Angelo’s Answer

    I am not aware of any legal requirement that says an employer has to hire someone because that person may have a maser's degree. Likewise, I am not aware of any law that makes it illegal to turn down someone for a job because that person does not have a master's degree.

    Angelo’s Answer

    If the DFEH has provided you with the right to sue, then you have one year to file your lawsuit. Even though you have been given a right to sue notice, make sure that you have filed a DFEH complaint against all those you believe are responsible for the harassmnet, wrongful termination and retaliation. Otherwise, if you do not, you could be barred from suing person(s) or companies that are responsible for the harm caused to you.

    Although you may be an at will employee, you should look for your company's employee manual which may describe in detail what steps the employer has to take before they can discipline an employee and under what circumstances.

    I had a few drinks and asked a friend to take the blame,. he did until the cop was going to dui test him and told him I did it..I failed my test but blew a .o6 at the jail. Now I have to go back to court for the violation and dont have an attorney...

    Angelo’s Answer

    I am licensed to practice in Maryland and California. Since you are in Maryland, and have to appear in criminal court (assuming for the DUI), ask to speak to a public defender before saying anything in court. Or, if you have finances, inform the judge that you need time to get a lawyer. What will likely happen is that you appear in the court room, your case number/name gets called and you approach the podium and the judge will ask you how you plead. Ask for a public defender at that time before you plead or say anything about your case. Or, ask for more time to get a lawyer. Also, sometimes, the district attorney will call out your case before the judge even shows up at the bench. The district attorney may ask you if you have a lawyer. He should not ask you more than that. Either let him know you have an attorney or will ask for one when the judge takes the bench.

  • We are being sued almost 2 years after a car accident. no damage to her car, but she went and was released from Hosp. that night

    How does that happen, when we haven't heard from her or our insurance company for almost two years. At the time they both told the officer that they were both at fault, but my husband got the ticket because he hit them from behind. No damage to h...

    Angelo’s Answer

    Your questions need to be answered by an attorney licensed in the state where the accident happened. I am assuming Iowa because that is where your post is coming from. If in Iowa, contact an Iowa state licensed attorney who can answer the specific questions you have about how long someone has to sue for a car accident in Iowa. If you have car insurance, you should read your policy or at least declaration page and contact your insurance adjuster for answers about your auto insurance policy. Your state website is www.iowabar.org.

    Angelo’s Answer

    You should contact an attorney in your state, and possibly someone near where you live or where the accident occurred because an attorney licensed in Colorado would have a better answer for you. If you need help finding an attorney contact your state bar website at www.cobar.org.

    Angelo’s Answer

    Generally, if your father was hurt at work, and wants to speak with an attorney about that work injury, your father should contact an attorney that handles workers compensation cases. These are cases that involve someone getting hurt at work. Do not wait and see what happens. There can be deadlines that need to be met. If your having trouble finding a lawyer, you can check your state website at www.isba.org for more information on finding an attorney who may help.

    Angelo’s Answer

    I am licensed in Maryland, as well in California. If you, as the client, want your attorney to know you are trying to reach him or her, and your attorney has not returned your calls, then (1) send letter addressed to attorney, certified return receipt requested and/or (2) personally stop by his office to see the attorney to discuss your case. If these efforts do not help, then log onto www.msba.org, the Maryland Bar website for more information.

  • What happens to our case if defendant fails to appear for a show cause hearing

    We were granted a judgment, defendant was supposed to appear for an oral exam, but failed to appear. We were then granted the above

    Angelo’s Answer

    Generally, an order to show cause, issued by a judge means that the judge is ordering the defendant (in your case its the defendant) to come into to court and explain/give good reason why the defendant did not appear when and where he was supposed and why the judge should not sanction the defendant for failing to show up at the date and time of the oral exam. A sanction can be money or some other form of punishment for the defendant not showing up at the oral exam. For more information, you can go to Maryland State Bar's website at www.msba.org and there are usually publications that give detail to questions you may have not asked here.
