Q. is this legal in a work place?
A: You may well have minimum wage and overtime claims (if you worked more than 40 hours in a week). You should consult with an attorney and consider filing a claim with Maryland Department of Labor.
Q. What are possible penalties if I accept a position with a recent client of my current employer?
A: An attorney would need to review the agreement to give you meaningful advice. I suggest you call a Maryland employment attorney for such a review and a consultation.
Q. Can a former employer prevent me from performing the same work for a competitor or on my own?
A: I would suggest you have the agreement reviewed by an employment lawyer. The lawyer should be able to give you a sense of the enforceability of the agreement. The wording of these agreements vary and the wording matters. Also, what you do at work is an important part of the analysis. I have written a few posts on this subject. See the following links: http://mdemploymentlaw.blogspot.com/2008/05/what-to-do-when-you-are-threatened-with.html http://mdemploymentlaw.blogspot.com/2007/03/non-competes-are-only-enforceable-if.html http://mdemploymentlaw.blogspot.com/2006/10/q-can-you-leverage-your-way-out-of.html
Q. Where do i go to find out more about non-compete clause in the maryland code?
A: You should have a Maryland employment lawyer review the employment contract, the non-compete agreement and the lawsuit. The law that governs Maryland non-compete agreements is not always intuitive or logical. More information is available at: http://mdemploymentlaw.blogspot.com/search/label/Non-Competes
Q. Hi there, was wondering if an employee plaintiff could request salary info of other employees in flsa action?
A: It depends. If the pay information is relevant to the plaintiff's claim, then the information is subject to discovery (and will be disclosed). Also, many FLSA actions are filed as collective (or class) actions. Each class member's compensation is likely to be relevant and subject to discovery. But the salary information of an employee unrelated to the claims in the lawsuit is likely to be deemed to be irrelevant and not subject to discovery.
Q. Can i get a lawyer if i get fired for the wrong reason at work
A: 1. You can get a lawyer by hiring one. The first step is usually scheduling an initial consultaiton. You can learn a bit about how lawyers charge here: http://mdemploymentlaw.blogspot.com/2007/08/how-employment-lawyers-charg... 2. Only a narrow class of reasons for a terminations are wrong (or unlawful). You should consult with an employment lawyer to see whether your employer's reason for terminating your employment is unlawful.
