Q. what is my legal stance on getting my final check from past employer who refuses to pay.
A: In Colorado you can either file a lawsuit or file a wage claim with the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment. Which is the better option for you is impossible to say without knowing more facts about your situation. You should talk to an employment attorney in Colorado. In some cases you can recover attorney's fees on unpaid wage claims.
Q. Can a non profit org change my hourly wage to salary?
A: An employer can change an employee from an hourly basis to a salary basis so long as either the method of payment satisfies the minimum wage and overtime requirements for a non-exempt employee or if the employee is exempt from those requirements. Without more details it is difficult to say whether a change to your pay method was lawful. You should talk to an employment lawyer in Colorado.
Q. Can an establishment, such as fast-casual restaurants, discriminate against age?
A: It is unlawful for a business to discriminate against applicants over the age of forty on the basis of the applicant's age. An employer may be liable to an applicant refused a job on the basis of age if the employer employs more than the minimum threshold under federal and state law. Your mother should talk to an employment lawyer in Colorado about what happened.
Q. My employer has a gnat infestation in our plant. Is there an agency i can report it to? We manufacture coffee.

Q. Can a good mother in tx who has had their child loose custody of them for not being able to obtain/afford a lawyer?
A: If you do not hire counsel you will be at a significant disadvantage if the other parent has an attorney. You will be held to the same standard as an attorney before the court although you know that you do not have the same training, experience, or knowledge about the legal system that the opposing attorney has. So yes, it is definitely possible that you lose custody of your child in a case where you may have won had you had a level playing field by hiring your own attorney.
Q. In filing a divorce is it better to be the one to file first?
A: Attorneys disagree about this issue. My position is that there are situations where it makes a difference but in the majority of cases it does not. I would suggest if the situation is getting complicated that you talk to an attorney now about how to proceed rather than waiting to see what happens where you may not be able to make the decision about whether your situation is one where you would benefit from filing first.
Q. If temp. Order is dismissed can attorney general revert to previous order?
A: If the temporary order was dismissed the the original order becomes effective on the date of the dismissal.
Q. can a deposition be requsted from an ex employee
A: Yes.
Q. Severance
A: The first question that comes to mind is how your employer/former employer would know that you have received a job offer unless it comes from that company or an affiliated company. My suggestion is that you talk to an employment lawyer in your area about the terms of the severance plan and what it may require of you.
