Employment Law - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

Hello, Janet -

You will find information about nurses from countries other than the USA becoming eligible to be licensed and hired as a nurse in the USA here:

Also, read the information here:

Plus, read the information here:

You will also need to find an agency in South Africa which recruits nurses there for legal employment in the USA, or find such an agency based in the USA. A USA-based employer will need to complete and file the US H-B visa application for any non-US nurse recruit.

Sorry. I cannot help with that other than providing you with links to web sites describing what sort of agency to look for and what sort of agency to avoid. See below.

Learn about some employment recruiting agency recommended evaluations as well as pitfalls here:

Best wishes.

They can do anything, but if they are terminating you on age related grounds and it isn't in your contract, they have to pay you severance pay despite your age.

The labour lawyer will guide you, you don't need us.

I am coming up to 66, I think you should have been retired years ago :>) I plan to retire the day after my next birthday.

I doubt it. The Federal government has about 180 laws regarding employment and individual states also have laws. And the laws and court rulings change. Human Resource staff dealing with employment law may have subscriptions to periodicals updating them. You may find books that offer summations or an overview but this is not an area lending itself to simplicity.

Here is a summary of major laws:

It would likely have to be a state law. The federal law's don't offer anything until you have worked for the employer a year.

Yes.She probably received a permanent disability award which is typically paid in installments. The award is based on the impact her injury had on her earning ability.

Our basic judge made law came from the English common law. The rights provided by federal and state employment statute did not exist at common law.

You can't draw UIF unless you or a deceased spouse paid into the fund. If your employer was required to pay it (and not all are required to do so), your pay check would have a UIF record on it. You were paid in cash and that suggests no record of employment exists. Any suggestion that your employer has done something wrong will likely rule out you working there again. Ideally, you need to work for an employer that pays UIF and that UIF record would be on the paycheck issued by the employer if it is being paid. You probably can learn if your employer was supposed to be paying UIF but that knowledge will not get you UIF. The Department of Labor could tell you. Or this site might:

However, payment regarding maternity leave may be a different matter, one worth discussing with the Department:

Paul, your issue is best addressed at the government labor department office - you did not say where you are but you should check with the people at your local labor department as they are probably in charge of your "provident" which I assume is some sort of allowance or stipend.

It would depend on who did what to whom and under what circumstances.

I would consult an Employment Law Solicitor. Then I would get the correct answer to my question instead of getting an unqualified opinion.

Employment Law | Answered on Jan 22, 2017

The answer to this question is dependent on where the conviction occurred and whether that jurisdiction has restoration of civil rights, including the right to carry a firearm. If the state has restoration available and the person convicted of a felony has had their rights restored, including the right to possess a firearm, then even federal law contains an exception that allows them to possess a gun. If they have not had their rights fully restored, then possessing a firearm may violate the law of the state, and definitely will be a violation of 18 U.S.C. Section 922(g)(1) if the firearm moved in interstate commerce.
