Employment Attorneys

Good Day Neighbors!

I am so excited today.  This week we will actually start getting our front porch back together!  Yeah!  We have been without one for right about 2 weeks now.  I will share that all with you in a later post.  Anyway, what i wanted to discuss here with my neighbors was employment attorneys.  Has anyone aver had to use one?

I didn't even realize that they had employment attorneys.until I heard about employment attorneys in Houston TX.  Yes , we have done plenty of reading on Texas.  We will be going through there again in October and my daughter is excited!  Anyway, I never realized the extent of the need for employment attorneys. they cover everything from wrongful termination to wage and hour disputes, harassment to discrimination.

With both my sons coming of age to join the workforce, I want them to be aware of situations that can occur while you are in the workforce and what options are available to them should they ever experience wrongful termination or harassment. We have actual had 2 friends in the past 6 months have trouble on the job.  One was actually let go due to religious discrimination and the other has been put on leave.  I am amazed by what is allowed to go on because the businesses have so much power behind them and most people don't know the options they have available to fight back.

My husband was actually able to get his position back from going higher up in the company when they told him if he didn't work Sundays that he would loose his job.  He set down when he was hired that he could not work Sundays.  A new manager decided he would try to force him to work Sunday and fire him if he didn't.  Needless to say the supervisor for the region came in and apologized and he went back to work.

Have you ever experienced wrongful termination, harassment, discrimination?  What did you do?  Did you take action or just let it go and look for another job?  Leave a comment here and share with us your experience.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
