How To Avoid Harassment and Know Your Rights: The Fair Debt Collection Process

When many people think of the stereotypical debt collector, it's a hardened scoundrel of melodrama infamy that tries to throw widows and orphans into the lane, because rent is inflated. Although it's tempting to portray these people as shameful villains — and some of their behaviors were history's less than admirable — one thing is essential to remember: no one has to borrow money. Finally, it is because of the option of borrowing money that you owe a debt. Your creditor issued your loan or credit line on your guarantee of the payment of this loan. Loans are beneficial, you…

Employee Rights in the Workplace During COVID-19

Some laws are clear and precise that it doesn’t require the application of rules of statutory construction. However, not all laws and statutes are alike. No matter how thorough the framers of these provisions are, some require legal interpretation. The same principle applies to labor laws. While the same law provided for just and authorized causes of termination, there are still conflicts regarding how employment lawyers and the bench, and the bar members should interpret its implementing rules. For example, redundancy may be an authorized cause to terminate employment. However, such termination can be subsequently found unlawful if the company,…

Everything Nobody Ever Told Me: People Skills Make All the Difference

Yesterday my colleague called me up for a vent session.  She had prepared a really complicated tax filing for a client and the client responded by sending a list of about fifteen things she thought was wrong with it.  Well, the clients concerns were all unfounded and my colleague patiently and politely addressed each and every complaint.  The client apologized for her snippy e-mail and stated that taxes made her anxious.  It was really nice to get an acknowledgement from the client that her behavior was unacceptable.  Everyone gets snippy once in a while and its entirely forgivable.  Unfortunately, this…
