Q. Being force to walk/work in area where coyotes, etc roam free.I'm not provide with a vehicle,or proper light
A: I am not sure what the nature of your job is, or what your job duties are that require you to be in such an area, but your employer is required to provide reasonable means to ensure your safety. You should speak to Human Resources or a supervisor about your safety concerns, and request that a reasonable accommodation be made to ensure your safety.
Q. Is a police officer, who is off on 4850 time, entitled to uniform allowance for uniform upkeep and maintenance?
A: 4850 time may vary from department to department, however, in California, if an employer requires that an employee wear a uniform, the employer must pay the cost of the uniform. Labor Code Section 2802, Industrial Welfare Commission Orders, Section 9. The term "uniform" includes wearing apparel and accessories of distinctive design and color.
Q. What happend if you lost your job for a supervisor descrimination.
A: If you have been terminated because of a legally recognized discriminatory reason (race, sex, gender, disability, etc.) then you may have a wrongful termination in violation of public policy claim against your employer. Such a claim would entitle you to lost wages, emotional distress damages, possibly punitive damages, and attorney's fees.
Q. I have worked under contract since 9/10/10 with out compensation. I work from home. BREACH OF CONTRact?
A: Your contract should specify exactly what your pay is, as well as how and when you are supposed to be paid. It would seem odd that your contract would state that you are to work for almost 4 months without getting paid. Regardless, in California, you are supposed to get payment of at least minimum wage for all hours worked. This holds true even if you are paid solely on a commission basis.
Q. Does 28:1441 Notice of Removal - Labor/Mgmnt. Relations in a class action lawsuit mean the case was dropped?
A: It means the case was originally filed in State Court and the Defendant removed (changed courts) to Federal Court. Many times in Class Actions, the corporate headquarters of the defendant is out of state. In such a situation, provided other parameters are also met, the defendant can remove the matter to Federal Court. Such a removal should not greatly impact the manner in which the case is handled or resolved.
Q. Personal injury on a commercial propertyleased to a tenant. who is responsible tenant / landlord or both
A: It depends on what the cause for the injury was. If the injury was sustained because of some improper upkeep of the premises, or a building code violation or other similar structural defect, than it would be the landlord. If the tenant, however, specifically altered the premises without the landlord's knowledge, he may be liable. If you are uncertain, then you should name the landlord as the defendant and leave it up to the landlord to sue other parties for indemnification if necessary.
Q. Wrongful termination, anyone ever win a case base on code of business conduct and ethics
A: In order to recover for wrongful termination, you have to have been terminated for an unlawful reason, ie, sex, race, gender, or violation of public policy. There are several public policies which are actionable, however, a general business conduct or ethical deviance typically does not in and of itself rise to the level of wrongful termination.
Q. If there is not a recovery from a lawsuit, can defense counsel recover costs
A: Yes, if you as the plaintiff did not recover any monies, then the defense "won" with its defense (zero) verdict. The prevailing party is entitled to recover certain costs attendant to the litigation, including filing fees, court reporter fees for depositions and for trial, and other costs. Had you "won" you would have been entitled to recover those same costs from the defendant.
Q. What happens to my dads informations if he use to work forthis company.and what happen to hes 4 1 k
A: When you say your dad's "information", are you referring to private and confidential information? All such information should remain protected. As for the 401K plan, your dad should contact a new broker and roll the old 401K into a new plan not managed by his employer's old broker.
