Legal Answers
597 Questions Answered

Q. We purchased a house from a property company that flipped it. The windows leak. Is there any action we can take?
A: If they are new windows they may be under warranty for the install and the product. You should contact the seller or seller's attorney to find out about the warranty status. If not, then you may be out of luck since as the other attorney mentioned, Real Estate sales in NY are generally "as is" transactions, meaning that absent fraudulent inducement (which nothing you have indicated would rise to the level of) that you are should investigate before closing all potential issues and get a home inspection report to advise you of potential issues before you sign the contract.
Q. Can a summer camp have employees under the age of 18 and require them to work over 12 hours a day?
A: Here is a link to the law:
Q. I am working a part time job. Can my boss order me to do work at home for no pay? Thanks.
A: Not for no pay. See the Fair Labor Standards Act minimum wage rules. Your compensation cannot be zero, that's against the law in all but a very limited number of circumstances (volunteers for instance).
Q. I'm a 16 yr old with summer job. Can I be forced to use personal Fb for work? Can I be forced to use my phone for work?
A: There is no law, to my knowledge, that restricts an employer from making it a requirement that an employee assist with their marketing. So, you can always threaten to quit or quit and find alternate employment where the management doesn't have such a requirement.
Q. My mother owns a house in MY and let my sister and her husband move in and they are causing problems.
A: Sure, they can do a lease...
Q. Suing company for negligence in handling their immigration matters
A: The only potential case would be if the corporation and the employee had a contract that created an obligation that the employer thereafter did not perform.
Q. Do I have to register my business someplace in order to compete for government contracts?
A: You should form an LLC and you may need some licenses. With government contracts they will disqualify you for all sorts of reasons so you should be a properly formed entity.
Q. I filed my ticket on line with New York DMV 45 days later I received an email that ticket has not been received.
A: Go to a TVB, inform them of what happened, they will printout a substitute ticket and give you a court date. You may have to post a bond if it has been past a certain amount of time.
Q. Can an off duty manager fire an employee for alleged misconduct (employee is on company time seen by exiting manager)?
A: Most likely yes. I say most likely because this appears to be an employment at-will scenario in which case any superior can, within the scope of his responsibilities fire an employee with or without any cause.
