The employer sends the employee to various locations around the US to work with clients on a contractual basis. So the city the employee is located at is different from the Employer's city. If the employee wants to file a suit against the employer...
This is not legal advice. Consult with a local, vetted attorney in your area before acting.
Generally it is best if one files suit in a place that is most convenient for them. It's expensive and exhausting to fly or drive long distances to meet with your attorney, attend court hearings, mediation, mandatory settlement conferences, trial, etc.
Generally, one can file suit where the agreement to work was made, where they performed work, and where the Defendant resides. Best case scenario would be if you can sue where you live, and hopefully that is were you "made" the agreement to work for employer.
I suggest contacting a local lawyer and asking them your question above. Be ready to answer the question, "Where were you when you agreed to start working for employer?" If the answer is "Milwaukee" then talk to your local attorney about filing in state court there, and make the employer come to you.
You have statutes of limitations to consider. Please act accordingly.
Good luck!See question
I was fired from Hobby Lobby within one week of telling my manager that I was pregnant. Within that week, I was written up three times for reasons including: calling out for the first time in the five months of my employment. I was told that my po...
I practice in California and we don't have an agreement so this is not legal advice: if I were you I would contact a local employment lawyer. You can find lawyers in your area via Avvo, Yelp and NELA:
Under federal law, discrimination based on pregnancy is illegal. The facts above don't state how long you worked for Hobby Lobby or if anything else happened that might lead them to take negative action against you. If you and a local attorney can prove that pregnancy was the motivating factor for what they did, then this might be a lawsuit worth pursuing. If you were in CA, for example, I would want to know more.
Prepare a timeline, witness list, and a copy of documents and give them to a lawyer during a free consultation asap. You have statutes of limitations to consider so don't delay. Good luck.See question
How can I start my own law enforcement agency? I graduated from a police academy from California and wish to start a police agency is it possible? I have a BA in Business administration and forensics degree. Would the city of san Diego allow ...
Law enforcement is generally left up to the state, not individuals. I don't believe any credentials or licenses give you the right to enforce the law as you see fit. I highly doubt San Diego would allow you to make your own agency. I would visit your local city hall and ask questions from people in government that can give you more direction. Perhaps a private neighborhood watch program is more likely ...See question

It is a misdemeanor for someone to record a conversation in California without permission. It is unlikely that an illegally recorded conversation can be used in court. I don't know what you mean by "the California Eave dropping". Eaves dropping (listening without permission) is neither illegal nor is it the same as recording, so the last part of the question is unclear.See question

It is likely you may be liable for the full amount you lied to get and possibly some interest and/or penalties. You should consult with a local attorney as soon as possible to see if you can settle the matter.See question

You may be able to win unless the employer can demonstrate that you were fired for cause, which it appears they are going to attempt to do. You need to try and show you were laid off, not for cause. If you have a witness that can help you prove that, no harm in bringing them. The witness should have have personal knowledge from first hand experience, not information based on what you told them (although hearsay evidence is allowed in EDD hearings, it's just not very persuasive).See question

This is not an employment or immigration law question. It's a question for the DMV. I would call your local DMV office and see what the best course of action is since your stay is so long.See question
