  1. Hi, I can't seem to find anything in my law library (Google) about this issue. My employer requires that all employees find coverage for their vacation days before he will approve the vacation. What this means is that if you don't find some one to cover even one of your shifts (in say a week or two week long vacation - we earn 10 days of vacation a year) then you don't get vacation approved. What this leads to is people actually offering money to others (for example, "Take my shift and I'll give you $40 extra dollars) to cover shifts. To me this seems like a unethical practice, where by you are essentially punishing an employee for wanting to take their earned vacation (either financially, or through the process of having to inconvenience other employees). What say you? For what it's worth, while I work in Arizona, this is a huge multinational company with branches all over the States and the world - it's parent company is British. The employee manual says nothing about this policy, and having talked with employees from other locations, this sounds like a "Local Policy" only, rather than a corporate one.
  2. We are still going through the divorce and have verbal commitment between the two lawyers and both parents to have the child for 5-2-2-5 schedule. My son's b'day falls on a Saturday which happens to be father's weekend. Father and his lawyer are saying we cannot have mother meet the child as it is fathers weekend. What can be done if I (mother) want to meet the child for few hours on child's b'day?
  3. I have worked part-time as a disabled employee for a major retail store for the past three years without incident. However, this year in January, a new manager began and my schedule has been drastically reduced. Several times I've spoken to him about this. I am now working less than 1/3 of my availability. He has scheduled me several times for days that I'm not available and several weeks (not consecutive) I've not been scheduled at all. As far as I can tell I'm the only disabled person working and I'm the only person who is having this difficulty. Is there any recourse to this or should I be forced to quit a job I love and excel at because he's a jerk?
  4. Is it illegal for a minor in the state of Arizona to post a shirtless picture? Specifically, a teenage girl?
  5. I have been served a civil summons for a student loan in default. I knew this wasn't going away, so i do have some money saved away for this. My question is, who should I contact about settling out of court and starting my payments again? Should I contact the legal firm that served me the papers, or the student loan trust they represent, or can i have someone that does debt consolidation take care of it?

  7. My girl lives in A.Z, Has a house there & has state Ins. there and has her Doc. there. But as of right now she is in Cal. and it looks like she is going to be there for some time she is taking care of her father.He is at the end of his life and would like to die there in his home. She has some hart problems she called her Ins. she was told that the only care that they will cover is emergency visit. We thought that if medical Ins. is a Fed. law that she should be cover in any state that she is in. 1 Should she able to be seen by a Doc. in Cal. & the state of AZ. pick up the bill.? 2 She has her resident in AZ. should she be forts to give up residents in AZ. just to get covered by Cal. State Ins.? 3 And if so what happens if her dad passes next week? Then she will be back in AZ. with Cal. Ins. The state of AZ. told her she will not be able to reapply to get State Ins. if she gives it up. 4 So what dose her do? I hope you can give me some answers. All of you have all ways been so help full and at the very lest sent me in the right place. With all of my question. Thank You for taking time out of your day to read this. dogcatone out Have a great day!!
  8. Dear, I am a French student in a Business School, and i am currently interning in a company in Tucson, AZ. For some of my works, I just would like to know what kind of means we have to find whether (any kind: transfer of shares, bad title, real estate ...) a property transfer is illegal or not (in Arizona notably, but not limited to ) Thanks for your answer !
  9. Original mortgage with bank A. Deed of Trust (DOT) never recorded. Bank B acquires A and acknowledges the DOT has been lost or destroyed. HOA records a lien against the property (subsequently paid). Bank B is alerted to the title problem to DOT on the property, due to failure to record. Bank B files suit against property owners and HOA and requests: 1. 1) It’s DOT be equitably subrogated to the recorded first lien position. 2. 2) Grant any and such further relief as the court deems necessary. Where to go from here? Guessing I can pull and file a blank motion. Need a brief consultation. Or, is this suit merely Bank B trying to protect it's interest and I am wondering if I even need to respond.... I do need to respond within a week. Live in North Phoenix, near 101 and 17. Can meet in PM, 5:00 plus. \
  10. Hello, I am hoping someone can advise me on the law regarding property remaining after the termination of a cohabitation. My boyfriend's ex-girlfriend left some personal items at his house after she moved out in July 2016. She was told to move everything of hers out and did so in by October 31st 2016. she was asked if she had everything and stated yes. Then again in December she reached out to get more items. She was allowed another walk through of the house and was told this time to make sure she received everything. She stated again that this was all. She contacted again in February wanting still more items. She was told they would be delivered to her but she is no longer welcome to come over. She is demanding to be able to come over and get more. We are afraid that she is going to continue to do this each month disrupting our lives. Is there any law in the state of Arizona that would give us the ability to tell her to stop that she has had her chance? Is there a document we could get her to sign that would keep her from coming back around? Any help you can provide is appreciated. We don't know what to do and would like to move on with our lives. Thank you for your help.

  12. Have a signed repayment agreement. Long story short, agreement to miss 2 payments with agree restart on a certain date. Has not keep agreement. Threatened with civil suit, but they say 'attorney said as long as some type of payment is made each month, not what was ageednupon, that I can not file a civil suit. IS THIS CORRECT.
  13. I need a piece of advice, I am currently working for a political relative but I constantly have problems to get paid, has been a month that I do not receive my salary. Two years ago we had a similar problem because the closed the old bank account and I was left without cashing my checks, (i still do not get paid) I do not know what to do, I need my money but I would not like to affect him, what can i do?
  14. I understand the guidlines and consequences of having ones Miranda Rights read to them, ( or ), Not read to them is the same for All of the United States. Is this correct? Having been pulled over and charged with,1- Failure to maintain a single lane. 2-Liquor, Possesion of open container w/i vehicle, 3-DUI, Impaired to the slightest degree. Curbside breathalizer of .101. Arrested, handcuffed and placed in back of squad car. Refused blood test in squad car. Informed the officer I had just several hours prior had major dental surgery and consequentally prescribed pain medication. Was then taken to the station when after an hour or so the arresting officer finally rad me my Miranda Rights. Then presented with a Search Warrant to take a Blood Sample. Followed by another breathalizer which read a .08. ( the legal limit ) I was told. So- My Main question is; How significant is the fact that my rights were not read to me until long after I had been arrested and confined. (25 or 30 years ago I was arrested for a DUI in NY state and the judge simply dismissed the case because my rights weren't read to me Before I was confined to the back seat of the squad car.
  15. are a couple finger prints on cash register located inside a biz enough evidence of a crime if there is no video or eye witness??
  16. Hey guys I don't want to put anybody on blast yet, but to name a few the R****, A. golf resort, V**** M****, S*****, M********, believe it or not the list goes on and on.. And they all did about the same thing to me. I have a service animal for my disability and I bring her with me everywhere for the most part.. I had rented a room at the R****** and at the A. golf resort and they both kicked me out because of my dog!! They did not believe she is a service animal despite my showing paperwork, (which I do not have to furnish or provide to anyone)... They kicked me out, kept my money for the night refusing the refund. The other businesses asked me to leave, one told me she's not a service animal.. The other called the manager the manager asked that I leave within 2 minutes.. And the other simply said you just need to go.. I could not believe the treatment I was receiving in public for my service animal.. Granted she doesn't necessarily look like your average service animal, she does have pitbull in her bloodline.. regardless, I need her with me for the disability I have.. I have been reluctant to contact a lawyer to file a lawsuit despite even a police officer telling me that that's what I needed to do, because I don't want to drag my dog into court to have her do any kind of performance to prove her worth as a service animal.. I will refuse to do that. I would like to contact a lawyer to begin some sort of lawsuit against all of these. I strongly feel specified training needs to be in place for people who work n the general public so that mistakes and humiliating experiences like this arnott repeated in the future.. I couldn't believe the public stature of some of the corporations that had absolutely no clue what my rights were. I'm not trying to get rich quick, I even warned all of them that what they were doing was that best discriminatory at worst illegal.. it's taken me some time to make the decision to follow through with a lawsuit.. the ultimate deciding factor was due to the sheer number of big name companies who seemingly have no clue how to handle public service.. Now for my questions.. Does anyone know of any good lawyer to contact for this type of thing? Does anyone have any advice as to whether or not this is something I should pursue? Let me know what your thoughts are on that if you will.....i really appreciate iI, thank you! Regards Melanie
  17. Hi there, I came here not knowing where else to find some guidance and tips on where to start with this horrible situation that my 3 yr old god son is about to be in. I had a bestfriend named david and its unfortunate that I had decided that he wasn't going to change for the good anytime soon and that the new women he was with only made the drug use surface even more. I am worried for my god son. I was told thru a friend that his father way facing a 5 year prison sentence really soon and that the kids were gonna be left with their mother & how she isn't looking forward to it at all without david being there to play dad. She is the worst & most awful mother I have ever met & she creams and punches my god son like he knows exactly what hes doing when hes NEVER doing anything at all but playing or laughing & just being ur average 3 yr old boy. She yells at him to shut the f** up everytime he makes a sound or giggles. She has had CPS in her life since I could remember and was slamming drugs and getting high everyday throughout her very last pregnancy. the dirty needles in cups throughtout their entire bedroom. She had her last baby and she treats her like shes the only best thing that's ever happened to her. but treats her 3rd oldest like a piece of crumb on a kitchen table. her two oldest were shipped off to another state cause she couldn't handle taking care of them cause she wanted to have freedom of a drug life instead of saying party time was over. my god sons father is a wonderful father but he has somethings to change. I want to file a CPS report and have them investigate without her knowledge. but first I need to be sure that THERE IS A WAY that I can be grated guardianship or custody whichever it is I'm gonna need. to be sure that my god son is in a safe and loving place when his father goes away. I want him to be in my care & live happily with me......WHERE DO I START? WHO DO I TALK TO? PLEASE HELP ME
  18. My son and his friend originally signed a lease for a shared dwelling (4bed/2bath). The move in date arrived (August 19, 20160 and there was already another renter in the unit which WOULD HAVE been fine BUT....on their room mate matching, both my son and friend specified non-smoking, no party rooming, no alcohol in unit, tolerance to musical rehearsal hours. The complex assured me it would fine and they would be sure to honor their requests. As I said, move in came and the unit was filthy, there was a reek of cigarette smoke easily smelled BEFORE the door was opened. Upon entering, there were cigarette butts in the apartment, a large bag of pot on the coffee table, a pot grinder, rolling papers, pipe and empty bags of synthetic bath salts in the drawer of the coffee table. The book shelf in the common area was lined with liquor bottles and there were holes punched in walls. My son is 17, his roommate is 18. I called the issues to the managers attention and he asked that we return the next day for a new assignment and that he would evict the drug user. Upon our return we were given keys to the same unit and nothing was different. Again it was brought to the managers attention and this time I shared photos with him for proof of what we saw. Once again he asked we give him more time to find accommodations for the kids. They were put in an upgraded unit, 2/2 which is a good fit since they can control the environment since its just two bed two bath. Today, my son called me today(11/02/2016) to say the manager has informed the kids they have to move to a different unit or pay higher rent. Upon being moved into this 2/2 in August 2016 no fewer than three meetings were scheduled by myself (my son is a minor), his roommate and the manager. The manager failed to show up for any of the meetings nor did he call to cancel (I drive 90-120 minutes depending on traffic EACH WAY) I am wondering if the kids have the legal right to remain in the unit they are now very settled into and continue to pay the same rent stated in our lease because of the long duration they have remained in this 2/2 unit. They are both freshmen in college and it will be exceptionally disruptive to shift them into a unit where relationship of other renters in the larger unit the manager wants to move them to, they will need to pack, unpack, reorganize all during their first semester of college and during preparation for finals. They have lived in this unit since August and the complex has accepted the rent amount with the unit number of the 2/2 listed on the memo of the checks. I can not afford the higher rent the complex manager is demanding to allow them to remain in that unit. It is not a case of supply and demand because there are other vacant units. Do they have any legal right to remain in the 2/2 at the same rent level as listed in our lease? Regards, Wildcat Mom2020

  20. Last week I was getting on the I-10 going east from 19th Ave around 11:00 a.m. There were also 2 sets of lanes going east to exit off at 7th Ave. I was in the far right lane and had to cross over the exit lanes for 7th Ave. I was driving between 30 to 40 mph when I started to merge into the 2nd lane. As I always do I checked my rearview and side mirror before merging and put on my left blinker. When I got about 3/4 of the way into the 2nd lane I suddenly felt and heard a loud noise on the lower portion of my vehicle, which by the way is a Jeep Patriot. The jolt from the impact caused me to immediately turn my wheel back to the right, were thankfully no other cars were coming and I pulled off the road. When I looked behind me I noticed a white vehicle behind me and a black vehicle behind the white vehicle. When I got out of my car I didn't see any damages whatsoever so I went to the white car and checked and then the black vehicle. The guy driving the black vehicle said he didn't have any damages either and just drove off. I went back to the female in the white car and by then she had gotten out of car were she pointed to the damages near her right fendor on the passenger side. She immediately started saying I crossed in front of her and she tried blowing her horn and hitting her break. I told her I didn't see her car when I was merging and that she must have sped up or came from another lane, which she denied. So she didn't want a police so we exchanged information. Since there was no damage to my vehicle I wasn't planning on making a claim. But the girl did file a claim and stated it was my fault for crossing into the lane she was already in. My insurance company is agreeing with her and I don't think that it is fair. I followed protocol in changing lanes properly and I don't feel liable because the white vehicle hit me. I'm just fortunate I didn't have any damages. Her vehicle hit mine, not in the front of my vehicle, not in the middle but right near my rear tire on the driver's side. I am surprised that I didn't go into a spin. I wouldn't mind sharing some blame, but certainly not all of it. How do I defend myself from a driver's claim that it was my fault and my insurance company who feels the same? Any statutes for changing lanes? Any similar cases? I do plan to fight this if sued or if my insurance company makes a final confirmation that I am responsible.
  21. I (Mother) moved to Arizona 3yrs ago with my son. My daughter stayed in Alabama because her paternal grandparents have custody of her. I've been searching for days on how to go about getting a change of custody from out of state with no luck. Her father (in Alabama) and I are on the same page as far as how we would handle custody and visitation once we regained custody of her. Her grandparents are well known and respected in the community and this may not go mine or her fathers way, but I'll do what it takes. Which forms do I need to change custody since I no longer live in her state and which state would I need to obtain an attorney if need be? Also, if my daughter wanted to come live with me in Az, what forms and would I file for that?
  22. Our 2004 Hyundai 350XG, at 3 mph from complete stop, surged/lunged forward slamming into another vehicle. Brakes did not engage. I have only had the car 8 months. I have read many cases just like this one on-line. It seems to be a common problem. I would like to prove that the accident was not my fault. I would appreciate hearing from anyone this has happened to. Thank you!
  23. I came on here to ask something for someone i care about and hopefully get answers.... Im not sure if this is in the right part of where it is suppose to be but I'd like to know do you really need a job in Georgia to get a Emancipation and she doesn't like where she lives, reason i can say a few reason, she gets no privacy first of all, all her family comes barging in to her room with out even knocking on her door, they hardly buy food, her dad throws a fit when her mom buys food, he always buys fast food, and her health wise isn't good her body rejects most food she eats now, and her parents say they care about her, but never ask her how school is, or if she is ok, they don't really bother doing anything to help her, and she has two sisters an older one and little one, her older sister is married but lives in the house with them in the basement, and her dad is so worried about money, my friend is having issues trying to get her school work done because no one lets her do what she needs to do, and she wants out but doesn't want to have to get a job to get a Emancipation, I've told her once i get what i need done with my family and get this new house she'll be moving in with me and my mom and dad and look after her, and she really wants it. She means the world to me, shes like a sister to me and more and she feels the same way, is there anyway someone can help me out or give me an idea on how this all really works? I really do need the help... Also, if there is another way cause her parents won't let her move at all even though they say she is an adult but won't let her do anything with her life is there really anything she can do to get out of their?
  24. My husband and I where returning home . We stoped for the night and were setting up for the stay. Well my husband fell and injured his self I took him to the ER . That is were the nightmare started. He was not himself and in pain. I told the staff everything and within about an hour later we were told the we not just him we were just wanting drugs. That is when my husband did something that was not him. He broke into a locker and said if they won't fix him he will do it himself. Yes I know his actions where very wrong but he would never have done in his right mind. This is when we were both arrested and went to jail and thank goodness the police new there was something wrong but they had to do their jobs. Well we get back together and the next morning I had to call the EMT's he couldn't move they take him back to the same ER and that's when they came to me and said that he had to be air lifted because he had a broken neck and a very bad brain injury. The end result was if he had fell or hit his head he would have died. He lost 13 day's that he can not remember and will not be able to work for a long time. And then to send a bill like they did something that night when they didn't do anything at all .So do we have a case and who is liable. And we went on back to are home state and can sue from are home state.
  25. I am employed same Fortune 500 company 18yrs. I am currently classified as non-exempt. Approximately 6 years ago part of my required job duties was every 3 weeks I carried a pager(don't laugh as hard as I did), I was not to travel too far from my residence. suggested was 20 minutes travel time. I work in IT. If while on call I received a text from the pager I was to hurry home log in remotely and address the issue and correct. The following day I would advise the time logged in remotely and I was entitled to comp time off equal to the time I worked while I was off my regular shift. So if I work 8-5 and get a page at 2am and work 1.5 hours I was entitled to take off or shorten a shift by 1.5 hrs but it had to be the wit the same week even tough we were paid 15th and 30th. They rarely made exception to carry over to following week even if that week was within the same pay period. Something is Fishy.... around 2012 while still non-exempt employee in the same position I am advised I am no longer allowed to be "on call" with pager and I was forbidden to do any work outside my normal shift hours. To me that raised red flag. Somehow I think either somone went labor board or whatever but it just seemed bizarre that I went from just working my regular shift schedule and being on call and being compensated with equal time off the same work week even if it pushed me over 40hr work week. My employer is a large whale of a bully so I didn't want retaalaiton or fear of being managed out of a job, so I said nithing. Is/was this legal in Maricopa County Arizona? Now its 2016 and my area has 2 employees. One is leaving next week. I will take on the work load, just me and w2x work. I worked alone in this dept all 2015 when they pulled the other employee to different area. the work load and stress was intense causing issues at home and my occasional snarky response to late in the day requests to be completed by the time my schedule ended. After a few months it became second nature but the stress levels stayed high sometimes pushing me to brink of mental breakdown. Employer offer as little support as possible. I am now told my schedule needs to change to fit business needs. I do not like it as I kept same schedule all 2015 while being the only employee in my dept, but I can understand business needs drive most decisions. BUT I was told they were processing paperwork to change schedule as well was change status from non-exempt to exempt. I am now not only expected to take on 2x work load but I am now expected to complete tasks and not leave at a designated time. I asked.. 'So I received a year end review/score of 3 out of five which is not great and noy bad.. just average and now I am being told my skills are not only good enough to keep me in my position but good enough that I am expected to work in excess of 40hrs week and there will be ZERO salary or any type of monetary compensation for increasing work load and working longer hours. One item to note. This year has been terrible with regards to loss and time off. In Feb I went on vacation to see mom out of state the day I landed she went into hospital and 4 weeks later she passed away. Initially I was on vacation but one day after my vacation started it turned to FMLA. Unpaid leave. My thoughts were to initiate FMLA after my 40 hours of vacation were over. My employer changed my status to unpaid leave 24 hours after I left work. Now this is the part that shows how my employer could care less about its employee (me), the stress of home hospice and tending to a dying family member. My first 40 hours of paid approved vacation started Friday Feb 26 then Mon - Thurs following week. Yet all my benefits were suspended as of Feb 27th as my employer changed my status to unpaid approved FMLA which I NEVER initiated. So I am out of state, wife is not with me yet calls me as she is trying to pay mortgage etc and I haven't received pay for my 40hrs of approved vacation. I advised I had too much on my plate to deal with our crappy HR personnel so I borrowed from family. I was given 3k to pay bills and I advised I would initiate a hardship withdrawal from my 401k to repay the 3k but it would take about 4weeks. Well I was stunned that I had no access to my 401k as I was not an active employee so no access to my 401k. I had a very hard time dealing with my mother being embarrassed with her son having to change and bath her. My mental state is quickly collapsing, I have extreme AHDD. Now remember, this was supposed to be just a week visit with my mom so I only have one weeks worth of medication. the stress is taking its toll on me. I notify my wife I need my medication sent to me out of state, She calls my doctor who is not willing to assist in getting a new script or even offer any suggestions, I am now a ticking time bomb but I searched the web to a local doctor and made appointment, I say to myself that I just need to get thru a few days until I could see doctor and get new script. Well guess what...I attempt to use my health benefits and I cant as they were last effective Feb 26 as employer changed my status to unpaid leave. SO my mental state is about to go into a nuclear meltdown. OH I also forgot to state that I had until March 30 to get my health assessment completed by a doctor in order to get preferred rates and the exam and all blood work and test are at ZERO cost to employee.. Let me rephrase, ZERO cost to active employees. So I now have less than 10 day to get all my forms and test completed, and get results back to employer but I have NO health coverage so I have to borrow more money and pay full price out of my pocket. I apologize for the long version but it gets worse. So my paychecks are all jacked up but I didn't care as I was back home and I had small amount of money left to me by mother. So I put aside all my employers screw ups and try to get my life in order. I go back to work on a Monday and Tuesday driving home from work I am broadsided by a woman that ran red light. Car is totaled, I am in hospital and employer not happy as I am now on Paid Medical Leave. SO I have approved short term medical leave due accident. While in hospital the run a bunch of normal test including xrays, and CT scans etc . After a few hours I am told that no head trauma, no broken ribs etc etc BUT they have discovered a large mass in the center of my chest that should be looked at by a pulmonary specialist asap. my frustration with employer is so close to last straw and they proved they were true bully's as application for intermittent FLMA was a nightmare. I only need intermittent FMLA which is unpaid as I used up most vacation, personal time etc with my mothers care and then while in hospital after car accident. My intention s were without my employers approval for intermittent FMLA, my job was in jeopardy. I would need to see specialists to determine plan of action for the 3.6 CM mass in my chest. I my employer would some use it to affect my position and continued employment. Getting back to issues... I believe employer violated federal and state labor laws with regards to employment status non exempt while being required to be on call and not properly compensate the employee. Whether it was knowingly or discovered after the fact, so much time has past it is evident they have no intention to own up to the mistake and offer some type of retro active, they are just sweeping it under the carpet. And now they want to force me to exempt status, work more hours, 2x work load, restrict my freedom of travel by being on call and offer absolutely ZIP, NADA, NOTHING, ZIPPO. Is/was tis legal? What should I do if anything? I fear my hatred towards the powers that be with my employer will at some point succeed in either firing me or getting my to quit. BTW I am eligible to take phased retirement at end of 2017 but employers intentions in my opinion are to push me to the brink!! I apologize for the lengthy explanation but I felt I should state all facts. Thanks for listening!!! Its late, sorry for grammatical and spelling errors I must get sleep.
