Bankrupt Employers

Bankruptcy is not the end-all of a case! Take Sears, for Instance! It’s Not Over Yet! Ken More has not yet left the building!

School Bus Drivers

Does a day ever go by when we don't pass a bus on the road, picking up, dropping off, or transporting students somewhere? Did you ever think about the rules bus drivers might have to follow? Let's assume, for example, that the bus is delivering students for a musical concert. If so, perhaps the kids can leave the bus to grab lunch or visit a restroom. But what about their [...]

Car Haulers

Car Haulers! You know, the guys who drive those trucks which hold cars on them, as they’re being transported to either a new or used-car lot! Suppose that was your job!

Parking Lot Attendants

Do you think there’s anyone who’s ever driven a car who hasn’t used a parking lot? Think about it.

Sales Employees

Suppose you’re selling luxury or less than luxury goods. You know, Coach, Disney, Oochi, Gucci, or something else, Sears, for example. You might be expecting a pretty good income, depending on your sales each payday, based on your promised commission. But happens if that commission you’re expecting suddenly disappears? Like last year’s favorite clutch? If you’re a commissioned salesperson in California, you’re entitled to know what commission you’re going to [...]

Managers & Administrators

Did you get a promotion recently? To assistant manager, or even manager, perhaps? Or Supervisor, or Chief or Superintendent or Administrator? At the same time, was your pay changed from hourly to salary? So now, instead of making, for example, let’s say $20/hour (maybe more, maybe less, for you, of course), you’re making $40,000 a year. In fact, if you worked 50 weeks in a year (let’s say you got [...]

Truck Drivers

Are you driving a truck? Bobtail? Hazmat? P&D? Linehaul? Deadheading? Whether you’re driving any type of truck, a van, a car or a bus! Do you have to get there early to get ready, and not get paid for it? Do you have to empty out your truck? Safety-check your bus? Wait in line to get fuel? Go over your schedule for deliveries for the day? Or load [...]
