    I m 19, turning 20 in June, and am a Sophomore in college. I am currently studying communications, but have been very intrigued at the thought of a career as a lawyer lately. Since I don t really know the first thing about the ins and outs of the law, and am not taking any courses towards that, is it too late to try and become a lawyer? Do I have to start taking classes now or will everything I need to know be taught in law school? Sorry for my incompetence.

    Best answer: Do you want a day off or a week off? Your English skills are awful. I suspect they will soon fire you.

  • Can you get fired for farting at work?

    Best answer: Of course you can. An accidental toot - no but if you make a regular habit of it - I sure would hope so. Work can be unpleasant enough without people having to deal with that unpleasantness too.

  • What is this called when you report a harasser, and this happens?

    Best answer: Document everything in a notebook with names, dates and times. Knocking items out of your hand is an assault and I would file a formal complaint.

    Best answer: Document everything in a notebook with names, dates and times. Knocking items out of your hand is an assault and I would file a formal complaint. They have created a hostile working environment for you. The bad part is this person has managed to get everyone to turn on you I assume management also? He has totally set you up to get you fired and the excessive complaints with no documentation or proof of what this person is doing, management will label you as the problem and fire you. If this is a good job document and request to not work with this person if possible or start job hunting because your days are numbered due to a jerk.

  • Should my husband be paid for all the hours he worked, even if he performed duties that he wasn’t hired to perform?

    My husband was recently hired at a privately-owned mattress store. His primary job, is to deliver mattresses to the store’s customers. There has been days that my husband has went to attempt picking up the delivery truck (it’s kept at a different location other than at the store)...only to find out upon arrival,... show more
    My husband was recently hired at a privately-owned mattress store. His primary job, is to deliver mattresses to the store’s customers. There has been days that my husband has went to attempt picking up the delivery truck (it’s kept at a different location other than at the store)...only to find out upon arrival, that the truck is unavailable for pickup or the deliveries were canceled. When he asks what to do on those days...the store’s manager (his boss) has told him to come to the store and learn to be a salesman also. My husband has done everything that the store manager has asked him to do. However...the store’s owner is trying to refuse my husband some pay. She (the owner) claims the she hired my husband only as a delivery man...not as a salesman. She is refusing to pay my husband, for any of the hours that he trained to be a salesman (claiming that my husband is trying to steal money from her). My husband has tried to explain to her, that he only did what her store manager asked him to do. She still is refusing to pay my husband, because the manager failed to “get approval from her”, before giving my husband salesman duties. This is why we are confused. As we both understand it...if you’re asked to do ANY kind of duties at your workplace (whether you were hired to complete those duties or not)...you’re required to be paid for the hours you worked. Even though my husband wasn’t hired to be a salesman..is the owner still required to be pay him?

  • How to handle a single mom employee with behavioral and functional issues?

    Best answer: I assume that so far you are just verbally reprimanding her? From now on, write up a corrective action notice, have a private meeting with her after giving her a copy of it. The corrective action should state very clearly names, dates, what the problem is and what you expect the employee to do to correct it. ... show more
    Best answer: I assume that so far you are just verbally reprimanding her? From now on, write up a corrective action notice, have a private meeting with her after giving her a copy of it. The corrective action should state very clearly names, dates, what the problem is and what you expect the employee to do to correct it. After "counseling" her, ask her to sign and date it. She's not required to sign it but keep it in a locked, confidential file. (Be sure to write up any other employees who are misbehaving so that it doesn't look like you're targeting her). Keep writing her up-with most companies it's 3 corrective actions and on the 4th they are fired.

    You really need to create an employee policy/handbook and make each new hire sign an acknowledgement that they have read and understand it. That is a huge protection for you. In the meantime, Google California employment law and study it. I know that CA has many, many more employee protections than any other state. In all the other states an employee can be fired for cause or no cause at all.

  • Am I wrong for telling my manager I refuse to scrub the bathroom floor drain with toothbrush after he asked me too?

    Best answer: Are you in a trade union? (Do such things even exist any more?) If so that's one to ask them. Or you could go above that manager & ask the person he reports to. You may even make an official complaint if such instructions are not in your job description. You could make the request known to other... show more
    Best answer: Are you in a trade union? (Do such things even exist any more?) If so that's one to ask them.

    Or you could go above that manager & ask the person he reports to. You may even make an official complaint if such instructions are not in your job description.

    You could make the request known to other employees at that firm, see what they think about them. But be careful here, my guesses are that this manager is counting on you staying quiet out of fear. If you publicly embarrass him he'll want to make your life even more uncomfortable to force you to quit.
