    That's right. I'm wondering if they're a small company who has only just reached the size to file an EEO-1 report and is woefully ignorant as to how to go about it. I remember the first time I had to complete one, wondering how I was supposed to provide numbers of employees with characteristics I am prohibited from asking about.

    Jr verse Sr mix up!

    Then find a way to explain it that makes sense to people who don't know the situation.

    "Writing off" debts does not necessarily mean the debt is forgiven. It is basically a bookkeeping function that removes the debt from the list of court assets. However, the debt can still be collected, for instance, by collection agencies which purchase the debts for pennies on the dollar. Of course, the order you posted only applies to public defender fees anyway.

    It has already escalated to the point where you either go all in or bend over and take it. My suggestion: Get the plat diagram from the county. If the property line on that side is a straight line between the corners, buy yourself 5 or 10 300 pound boulders and have them laid out just on your side of the property line along the pad. If he hits a boulder with his car it means he drove on to your property and that's his problem. Yeah, he will yell and scream and might even sue you, but that's the risk you take with a lunatic neighbor. Or, you can sue him and seek an injunction compelling him to remove the pad. Home owners typically have the right to sue neighbors to enforce zoning and deed restrictions. Another alternative is to sell your house and move. I had to do that years back because of a crappy neighbor.

    Relationship Status Discrimination

    Of course not. You're both getting $X in benefits. The difference is that, because they don't need your employer to provide health coverage, all of their benefits are coming in the form of wages, which your benefits are divided between wages and health coverage. It has nothing to do with marital status. Rather, it has to do with them having other health coverage. They could just as easily be single and still covered on a parent's health insurance.

    Relationship Status Discrimination

    It is, in fact, becoming rather common for an employer to provide a financial incentive for an employee to go on a spouse's/partner's/parents insurer instead. My employer does not do so, but I am regularly asked if we do (I work in the Benefits office) by people who have had such a benefit in the past.

    divorce of disabled spouse

    You may be granted spousal support. Your spouse may be required to provide you with health care insurance, if she can reasonably afford to do so. You will be entitled to part of the marital assets. Upon termination of a marriage the court's focus, and essentially only legal focus, is division of assets and income. The fact that you are disabled may enter into your need for support and health insurance. That is about as far as your wife's responsibility and your rights extend. Divorce almost always results in anger, but anger does not increase the rights of the abandoned spouse.

    divorce of disabled spouse

    I can't tell you about rights that don't exist. You don't have the right to force your wife to stay with you, and that seems to be the only right you care about. Here's a solution for you that took me exactly ten seconds on Google to find: http://www.dhs.pa.gov/citizens/servicesfordisabled/

    divorce of disabled spouse

    My explaining the law to you does not necessarily reflect my views or sense of moral responsibility. I can tell you what a horrible person she is for doing this to you and how badly you are being treated all day long, but it still won't create a law that will criminalize her actions or force her to stay and care for you. What I would do does not necessarily reflect what the law compels her to do. In other words, don't shoot the messenger.

    The hotel has no reason to believe that you DON'T know her, if she comes to the desk and identifies herself as being with your party. This is not on the hotel. This is on your "friend".

    Complete stranger? No. By your own admission this was an acquaintance of yours to whom you gave all of the information about where and when you were staying and when you would be there. Apples to oranges and not worth a response. This was some one YOU knew and to whom YOU gave all the information to. Yeah, I'd be pissed, too. But it would be at my friend who would not be my friend anymore for pulling that stunt. Then get over it because getting monetary compensation is the only way you punish somebody for wrongdoing. Which hasn't happened here because, again, YOU gave all the information to some one YOU knew. All you can do is write to the owner of the hotel (President of the corporation) and voice your concerns. Then get over it.

    This is not the hotel's fault, it's your friend's fault. She's a crook and you need to deal with her, not the hotel. Turn her in to the police for identity theft and fraud. If you don't want to do that, then just get over it and move on. The hotel has no liability for her committing fraud.
