I currently have two jobs right now, I work for my soon to be father in-law in landscaping/snow removal and I work as a cashier for Meijer. I currently live with my father in-law and working for him which we made verbal agreement to take money off my pay to take care of rent to live with him but I haven't received any payment from which we agreed upon since November 2017 and it's becoming a problem because I now feel like I'm relying on one income source. I plan to get a place of my own soon but can't get it soon enough because of the lack in pay. I'm now waiting for my federal and state tax refund so I can get a place and take care of the rent.
I wanna stop working for him but I feel like I'm being forced to work because he wants to threaten a eviction and get a CPS case against me and my girlfriend cuz we have a 19 month old daughter.
Plus another thing I want to mention and I know it doesn't have anything to do with this, we pretty much allowed him to get away with a domestic violence case against my girlfriend (in which is his daughter).
I really need help getting out of this situation. I want my own place which my girlfriend and I can call "home" and not a prison.
Move, and get another second job. You have a wage and hours claim. See an attorney and expect a bad reaction when you commence cleaning up this mess.
To the PROSPECTIVE client, please call with more details, and for an appointment. My PRELIMINARY answer to your question(s) is for general purposes and based upon the information you have conveyed. It is based on such limited information that it is a general answer, and should not be relied upon as a reason for your action or inaction. My response does NOT establish an attorney-client relationship and such may only be established by mutual agreement, and the signing of a written retainer agreement, which will generally require payment for our services, as this is what we do for a living and, just like you, we must get paid for our work.
