Legal Answers
31 Questions Answered
Q. Right to travel never have received a driver's license or permit?
A: If you attempt to assert free travel as a defense to no license, then you lose. Driving is a privilege, not a right. You can travel freely by walking all you please, but you don't have the right to use state and federal roads without being granted the privilege. You'll lose in court, all the way to SCOTUS. Pay and get a license or give up the car.
Q. Repair company further damaged my travel trailer and they are extremely dishonest about work they've done w/ ins. co.
A: I suggest you speak directly with a lawyer. Ask him or her to review your paperwork, include any releases and provisions relating to arbitration. Because this is likely a breach of contract case relating only to property damage, most lawyers won't bring interested in representing you. I wish you the best.
Q. What can be done if a supervisor insists on the employee answering their personal cell phone calls/texts during/after wk
A: You should be compensated for answering after hours. Otherwise, such work requirements are permissible unless you work for the State. As an at will employee, you are free to seek other employment at any time without further obligations.
