@dbsg lub3r I seriously advise you to contact a lawyer to see if there's anything you can do. Or perhaps he can do for you.

My knowledge of American law is about as slim as my wallet: virtually non existent.

In the Netherlands, tennants are well protected by law but I have no clue what American law would say about this. A lawyer would be able to tell you though.

Thank you for your help.

Hey, buddies! I need your help. I have an urgent business trip to St.Petersburg. I will have free time, but I've already been there several times, so, to be honest, i am not really interested in touristic sightseeing places..Can you tell me some really good places to hang out, e.g. night clubs, strip bars?

hey, Ondřej. Ive been to SPB many times, coz my friends live there, so I have visited a great number of bars. So first of all, Dumskaya street. Funny, noisy place, here u can find as natives as foreigners, its a must for u to visit. Then may be Lomonosov bar, SPB bar, The Hat Bar(just ordinary bars with a good service and stuff level). And what about strip bars, ive been to one: Zavist bar, and it was quiet good, many beautiful girls and relaxing atmosphere

my boss just released my department's next work schedule. and though I normally feel satisfied with my assigned schedules in the past, I'm actually very angry with this one that came out.

since I work in the hospital, our work schedule is usually requested 2 months in advance. we call it "turning in our availabilities." Those who have either a full-time or part-time position usually will get priorities when it comes to days we want off or holidays we chose to be off or prefer to work. I've been working there for almost 5 years, and I was offered a full-time position 2 years ago. I work sporadic hours because I tend to get train to learn different sides of my department because I'm a fast learner, so they usually have me work varying shifts because I'm a stronger employee. mind you, I originated in the ER, so having to learn the admitting side is a lot to deal with, but I managed to learned it very quickly.

from the time I was per diem, up until today that I'm full-time, I have busted my richard simmons and make it a point to come to work all my scheduled days. my boss didn't hear me complain, but now, I'm losing out to these new employees who haven't even been in the department for a year, but were given a position even though work ethic-wise/skilled-wise, they're not up to par. now, the schedule has one of these newbies getting set hours, which is totally not fair. as far as seniority is concern, I have more priority over them, so I'm angry that my boss gave these newbies more consideration just because they wanna work in the ER more, rather than talk to me first about my opinion on the matter.

should I have a talk with my boss about this, or just have HR handle it? what do u guys think?

Talk to your boss first. Be reasonable and let him talk so you get a chance to talk too. There's no need (and in fact it will only work counterproductive) if you go of on a rampage from the get go. Even HR wont be able to do a thing for you then :)

Can anyone help me out???

So my family and I live in San Jose California 

In June 2015 our family rented a house and we paid for garbage and other utilities. In July 2015 the garbage policy changed so the garbage bill went to the home owners property tax. During our stay at the rental house, we had many issues with the landlord. The landlord and his son would come to the house like it was their storage room. They would come in and leave stuff behind without notifying us. We ended up locking the backyard door so the landlord and his son would call us if they needed to get something from our backyard. Btw they also left their trailer in our driveway and didn't even end up changing their address so we would constantly have to give them their mail. So back to the point. After locking the backyard door I guess the landlord was upset since he couldn't use the house freely like he did before and told us we were allowed to leave the house whenever we wanted before the lease ended. So yesterday was our last day at the house and we had the landlord come in and check the house so we could get our security deposit. Guess what!! He said that he couldn't give it back to us!!! He said we had two years worth of garabage bill we needed to pay so he would deduct that from the security deposit and he was going to deep clean the house because we made the house a mess which is a lie because we spent so much time making the house spotless because we knew that he was going to come up with nonsense in order to not give us our security deposit. So if we had to pay for garabage, why in the world did his son come every week and throw his junk in our our driveway?? Why didn't he send us the bill? And he also said he was going to take us to court for not giving him a 30 day notice that we were moving when he told us to leave ASAP!! 

What should we do??

landlord isnt giving us our security deposit and is now making us pay over $3000!!!

For that amount of money I would get a lawyer. If you're still able to access the house, take a LOT of pictures for evidence.

no, we cant access the house but we did take some pictures before we moved out.

sigh...we've asked the landlord if we could get a copy of the receipt for all the damages he fixed and he hasn't responded.

we're planning on taking him to court.

thank you  for your help!

The last three hours were emotionally exhausting. I was so angry but now I am just going to forget about it and have a nice evening with my sister. 

 

It just sucks to get blamed for something that is not even your fault. I still don't understand why I deserved it.

How to get help with your case:

1. Consult a lawyer as @CamelKnight said.  If you do not yet have a lawyer, this may be a helpful link: http://www.courts.ca.gov/selfhelp-lowcosthelp.htm

2. Request for an interpreter. If you or your family member do not speak English well, ask the court clerk to provide a court interpreter. 

3. Consult a small claims legal advisor. California law requires each county to provide free assistance in small claims cases. Link to small claims legal advisor: http://www.courts.ca.gov/selfhelp-advisors.htm

“Small claims” is for the recovery of money; and a small claims court is where your dispute on your security deposit can be resolved quickly and inexpensively. The maximum amount you can sue is $5,000, but an individual person (not a public or business entity) can claim up to $10,000. You must be 18 years old to file a claim. You may ask a lawyer for advice before and after you go to court, but you cannot have a lawyer present with you in court.

Good luck!

@No Eul I'm reading :) AND replying! :D 

Though life may be challenging from time to time, there are always things to look out for: a nice sunset, a day off from work/school, friends, a great book, good music, the latest K-Drama starring Park Bo Young (well.. in my case that would be a good thing :tongue: ).

If you need someone to talk to, you can always PM me. Or simply reply here and we'll see what we can do to get you out of your funk :)

no exactly a bad day, but something i need to get off my chest. tuesday was supposed to be an entertaining show for me, thats all. right now all i have on my mind is relationship issues. i am getting involved in something i wanted nothing to do with in the first place. first of all, B came up to me and started telling me what to do, so I got annoyed and told her to teach me (since it was her job anyways) how to do what I needed to do, then the boss came up to us and started screaming at B.

I ran off because it was too heated and i didn't want to be part of it. Then B went crying to the vice president (?) or whatever it is he is.... and he decided it was time to get rid of the manager. and another manager. WOW. lol idk what to think about that. this manager is the one who told me she thought this company was doing well. WTF do i do? i want to quit this company. but i quit too many companies and its time for me to just stay and grow in one place. the fact that the EVP (idk what he is tbh?) wants me to take her place. i should grab this opportunity, since its great but at the same time.. WTF!!!!!! =/ idk. that's insane. making someone a manager when they dont know wtf is going on. 

=/ THIS SUCKS. i just dont want B to be manager either because she is a ... yea i'm not saying it but u know.
