Legal Answers
32 Questions Answered

Q. 3 Year Case Without Mediation. Confused, please help?
A: The insurance company has no obligation to settle. If you cannot get it done or push them you can obtain new counsel who may have fresh ideas and strategies to get them to the table.
Q. At my job I get payed $8.00/hr plus $1.00/hr for tips. If I made $100 in tips but only received 1 per hour is that legal
A: If the tip is for you it is your tip and the employer cannot take the tips or use any part of it. If it is a tip pool at horse being shared with other servers and tipstaff that's a different story
Q. Is it legal for a company in the state of Florida to dock you automatically for a lunch if you did not take one?
A: Yes but if you work through any part of it and non exempt must be able to claim the time
Q. How long do I have after I quit to file a harassment suit?
A: File within 300 days but really should not wait more than 60 days
Q. Why would workers comp atty take case, say he is going to file in 3days, then does not file PFB,leaves worker injured
A: If you are. It getting benefits you should be then a petition is needed. However the petition requires first contacting the insurance carrier and trying in good faith effort to resolve and may require medical records to support the petition Maybe your attorney is waiting on any of the above or just got busy. Are you sure that your attorney promised he was filing the petition in 3 days no matter what? I suggest you contact your attorney to discuss status. You are always free to find alternative counsel if not satisfied but I recommend you try to resolve first
Q. I was a whistle blower at my company turning 2 of my managers in for embezzlement. I was then terminated. Is this legal?
A: Georgia does not have a private whistleblower law. The company was not doing things illegal, only the 2 managers. Need more facts as to why the company would fire you as retaliation for you helping them out. If the managers you reported were involved with the decision to fire you, then, you may have a tort claim against them for interference. Did you receive an explanation as to why you were fired? I recommend you consult an attorney. More information is needed.
Q. Laid off employee forced to sign severance agreement same day. What is legal recourse after signing under duress
A: THe agreement may be void or voidable, but you may have no entitlement to any severance, as Florida does not provide a legal right to severance. Have the agreement reviewed with counsel and discuss the facts which lead to the loss of your job.
Q. Is it my former employer's obligation to keep me safe while working?
A: An employer has a duty to provide a reasonably safe work condition. If injured, then may be civilly liable and may fall under workers comp. If you feel unsafe, then clearly you need to report and express your concerns and if not resolved or addressed, protect yourself. MLF
Q. FL-Does WC cover income loss from both jobs? Injured @ part-time job but couldn't work my full time job for 4 mo.
A: Chapter 440 will cover loss of concurrent income if documented and the information provided to the insurance carrier. You should consult a work comp lawyer to protect yourself. MLF
