• Could I get fired for refusing to pay $50?

    It was rush hour when I received a fake $50 bill and didnt call a manager over because I dont consider a $50 to be a large bill (FYI i usually don’t call a manager to the back if I get a $50 bill).

    It was rush hour when I received a fake $50 bill and didnt call a manager over because I dont consider a $50 to be a large bill (FYI i usually don’t call a manager to the back if I get a $50 bill). I ended up marking the bill but I didn’t look at it because my job was to get cars in and out as soon as possible. Then later, my manger asks me why I’m missing money and she finds out the $50 was counterfeit. So she’s making me pay for it but I’m refusing to pay because I didn’t call a manager over because I didn’t consider a $50 to be a big bill. Could my McDonald’s manger fire me for not paying the $50?

    Hi all. Boss is the business owner. Resignation is a must because I prefer a more efficient, professional and organized workplace. I have witnessed boss behave in a way that is commonly referred to as toxic. Boss wants to be your friend, ex spouse, enemy, slavedriver, riddler, and back to friend again all in the same day. Boss owns a small business. As expected there are no policies in place, zero. To perform my job I have my heavy personally owned equipment that is stored on site. These items must be obtained before my departure as I they are required for my skillset. I have already been offered a better opportunity to begin in 2 weeks. I feel it may be best to move out once my compensation has been secured, as boss’s financial irresponsibility is red flag #547, and move out on the spot. Am i worried about burning a bridge? No. Boss’s poor reputation is known in the industry community, my references and education support my skills and abilities. Should I show up to work in a uhaul one morning or maybe even outside of business hours and say thanks for the memories but I think we should see other people? Break ups are hard. Thanks everyone for your input.

    I just got hired about a month ago and worked 3 shifts a week within my first 2 weeks; each totaling 11 - 13 hours a week. Before the third week, I asked for 3 days of excuses for the following 3 weeks as these days are mandatory for my performances I have at school in order to pass them. Now the problem is, ever since I asked for an excuse, my hours started decreasing. At first going from 12 to 8 and now only to 4 - 5 hours. I have no idea whether if this is based on our workplace running low on money, having to support a new employee or whether if it's based on my work performance as I've made a few mistakes along the line.

  • The law firm I work at might be breaking the law. Do I stay silent?

    Or do I report to the SRA (I'm in the UK)? Lets just say that they "might" be involved in some dodgy financial shenanigans with a few companies. I work at a very small two partner firm as a paralegal. As far as I'm aware only one of them "might" be involved.

  • What is the reality behind being a Corporate lawyer at a firm?

    Best answer: A lawyer usually begins as an associate and works with experienced lawyers. If he or she grasps the skills easily and quickly they will begin moving up exponentially.

    Best answer: A lawyer usually begins as an associate and works with experienced lawyers. If he or she grasps the skills easily and quickly they will begin moving up exponentially. There will be the day when they are made a partner of the firm which will make them a partial owner of the firm. This is when a smart lawyer will be able to make an even greater move. At this stage they can go into practice for themselves. Either that or make a move into a much larger firm which means better income and better everything. Don't be afraid of "sacrifices" because you will sacrifice all kinds of things from the moment you enter law school. You will sacrifice your social life which might not be a bad thing. Some people waste time and energy and even their health by engaging in too active of a social life. You might find yourself nominated or elected to a judgeship. There will be another opportunity in placing yourself in full-time law school faculty or administrator. If you care about maximizing your financial income, it might be best to not work for yourself. Just head for the largest firm in your area and stay there and save your money for an early and a great retirement. Buy a home in the Virgin Islands with your own sailboat in the bay and sail and swim and snorkel to your heart's content. Bring along your beautiful trophy wife to admire you. Good luck. Happy breezes.

    Best answer: You have a recruiter who would know the (normal) salary of this job that you got.

    A recruiter’s job is to find you the best fit and also the right of amount of money.

    True story of myself. Years ago got laid off from a good job that I had over 10 years experience and my salary was of the average of my skills and experience, thus thought should have no problem getting what I had earned prior, but my recruiter informed me that since laid off (unemployed) then he wanted me to understand that the odds of me getting the same job was no problem, but (could) expect a 10% less, since I was unemployed vs employed.

    Now over the years when I found another job while employed, then in most cases would get on average of 20 to 25% more in salary, since in many cases employers love to (steal) from their competition.

    Odds are the $5,000 less is due to (no) experience plus they will have to train you. But once trained, then will know and expect with the (next) job what you will want in salary.

    I'm in a bit of a conundrum. I'm entering my freshman year of college this fall, going for finance, and for the past few years, I have been preparing myself for a career in law; internships, mock trial team president, networking with attorneys, studying the law at great lengths, etc. But more and more I find that the legal field is pretty miserable, and I am having second thoughts about going into it. I have considerable prowess and a great skill set to be an attorney, but really I feel that one of my main draws to it was the money involved. Ever since I was young, on the other hand, I have wanted to be a pilot. My infatuation with aviation still exists today, but I put it on backburner to pursue a legal career, and I want to sort this all out before it's too late. Should I continue on the legal track or go with my desires and head back into aviation? If so, how can I do that at this point? I am open to commissioning in the military as an officer if that is a viable pathway. I just don't want to enter the legal sector after seven years of schooling and say "I really wish I became a pilot." I want to enjoy my life, and have fun with my profession; although law is what I have been preparing for, I am not entirely sure it is what is best for me. Any advice is welcome. Thanks in advance.

  • Is it necessary for law students or lawyers to be part of social networks?

    I m a law student and I m not really into social networks. I m not on Instagram and I stopped using Facebook and Twitter a long time ago. Is this OK or will it affect me negatively at some point in my career? Btw, apart from the aforementioned, are there other social networks that would be more important to me?
