  1. I was sentenced to prison in September 1996. I was ordered to pay restitution which I am still paying since September,1996. The sentence was for 20 months with time off concluded on or about March 15, 1998. I am now beyond the "20" year period of my term for the conclusion of my restitution obligation based on the "VWPA". Victim Witness Protection Act of 1996. There is still money left on the restitution requirement. The question I have is will either the Sentencing Judge or the Financial Litigation Unit notify me of the conclusion of this case and stop Social Security from taking out my garnishment every month. Thanks,
  2. The question that I have is When does the twenty years begin? Is it when I am released from prison {18} months or when I was sentenced which is approximately 36 days from sentencing to start serving my first day in prison??
  3. With regard to restitution, when does the "20" year time period begin for Federal Crimes? Does it begin when you are sentenced or does it begin when you are released from prison? During my period of incarceration, I was paying restitution monthly which began in October 1996. I have been paying restitution ever since that time period. Additionally, I have read where restitution changes from a criminal judgment to a civil judgment when released from probation. Is that correct?
  4. If you appeal a decision handed down by a Federal Judge in your first trial, and he sustains his earlier decision, what are the time limits for filing an appeal with the 3rd Circuit?
  5. Are there time restrictions when appealing to the circuit courts.

  6. There still has to be a reason for his termination. Whether there is a union or not, "just cause is still required in order to terminate someone regardless of how long your dad was employed. The phrase "at will" does not have power that it use to. My recommendation to you is to have your dad file a claim with Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in the area where he lives.
  7. Thank you for the replies sent to me. Let me add that I have filed a charge with EEOC. I believe that it is required prior to filing a lawsuit against my former employer. The HR VP that i have mentioned, left the company in January of 2013 which would have allowed her a few days of vacation pay in accordance with our company policy manual with regard to unused vacation pay upon separation from the company. She was given 4 weeks vacation pay plus an additional 2 weeks of severance pay for 3 years of employment. As I mentioned, I was employed for 13 1/2 years and received many letters of appreciation from the CEO for my dedication to our company. The COO did not mention to me about vacation credits and I did not ask upon separation. I subsequently spoke to the in-house attorney and she said to me that I was not entitled to any additional pay. She did not respond to my last letter to her about the justification of paying the HR VP an additional 6 weeks pay, and not doing the same for me. When I explained to her that I felt I was being discriminated against because I am a Male, she declined to comment further. That is where we are at this point in time. Charlie G
  8. When my union takes a vote on a final offer and the vote is rejected, and a strike is authorized, are we the union required to notify our employer that we voted to strike. I read in one of the journals, that we have 72 hours to notify the employer of the results of the vote. Is that true?
  9. I was employed for 13 Years as the Director of Employee Relations for an employer with 4000 employees covering 19 states. After many letters of accomadations for exceptional performance, I was asked to take a $50,000 dolllar pay cut and reduced hours to 30 per week. They offered me an early retirement package, being 3 months of salary plus benefits and failed to include unused paid vacation. One of my associates the HR VP was also asked to leave and was offered the essentially the same package as I, except she was given 4 weeks vacation pay for only 3 years of service. She took the package and left the company after her contract had expired. She is 62 years old. i was never offered the vacation weeks that I was entitled to, minimum of 5 weeks pay. The company policy in effect at the time was that an employee leaving the company would be entitled to all the unused vacation pay due them in the year of their departure from the company. I have never taken all of the vacation pay that was due me during my 13 years of employment there. I have since sent them a certified letter requesting 12 weeks of vacation pay based on the formula they gave to the VP with only 3 years of employment. My question is whether I have a discrimination suit against the company based upon the fact they deliberately did not mention to me about my vacation pay, while they offered to the VP who is a female the 4 weeks pay. I am 68 years of age and I am having difficulty in finding employment.
  10. This matter was before a Federal Judge and was a criminal offense, so I do not believe that it transfers to a civil judgment. If so, then it would be viewed as a lien and terminated after 20 years like all civil liens. Am I correct?
  11. Does the sentencing judge have complete discretion as to how he imposes retitiution? If restitution is due immediately, does that have a 5 year time limit in acccordance with U.S.C. 3663, or does the restitution last until such time as the entire amount is paid.
  12. My sister won an uncontested civil judgment against her former husband regarding outstanding monies that were due for their daughter's college education. Since the judgement, her ex-husband has not turned over any part of the judge's decision in the civil complaint. What recourse if any, does she have in order to have the judgment enforced?
