Am I fooling myself in that I can get justice?

I was forced out of my job about a year ago. I am being treated for PTSD due to the crappy way I was treated. The ongoing symptoms and the waiting to hear back from the latest lawyer that I gave all my info to have a ripple effect in how I am dealing with personal relationships including my marriage. Am I foolishly expecting too much here in that I will get justice? [more inside]

Washington State Worker issue

My friend is having an employment situation crisis (Washington state), and it's difficult to find a lawyer to consult on the weekend. Is there a case here, or is at will termination going to come into play here? I know that he needs to talk to a lawyer, but it's a little bit of an emergency. :) [more inside]

Need an employments right lawyer STAT

A friend works overseas for a US-based defence contractor. He's been involved in a somewhat work-related incident in his country of work and his employer is, long story short, refusing to advise him, maybe even turning against him. Lots of details we don't want to put on the internet. Need to find a good attorney in the US that has specialization in working with employment rights, particularly in international situations for US based entities (not sure if the defence contractor part is relevant or not). If state matters, pick Texas.

employment lawyer recommendation in Chapel Hill / Durham?

My Dude has been offered a contract (software/tech/biotech related) with a one-year do-not-compete clause from a contracting agency, which (I think) seeks to preclude his being hired by any of their clients and possibly their clients' clients, which we think could affect his ability to be employed once the 4-6 month contract runs out. The job is supposed to start next week. We're willing to talk to a lawyer, but the one he called today didn't have time and we don't have a good referral. Any suggestions? This is in the NC Triangle (Chapel Hill/Durham, but willing to work by phone or e-mail). [more inside]

Does that make sense?

Debtfilter: Employer provides signing bonus structured as forgivable loan (forgiven if employee stays with firm long enough). Employee leaves soon after, and employer seeks to collect on loan. Employee is now a broke grad student, so employer offers to defer collection of loan until grad school is complete. Question: If length of time in grad school exceeds state statute of limitations on original loan, does this mean the loan will discharge itself before it can be collected? [more inside]

Suck up at my review or quit?

Impending performance review. I don't know whether to quit or somewhat disingenuously promise improvement and committment to the job. [more inside]
