Anyone who is contemplating a divorce or going through a divorce is likely  to consider some common questions, "will alimony have to be paid" and if so "what is the alimony formula."  Unlike child support, which is based on each state's child support guide lines, alimony there is set formula for when or how much is awarded. Determining alimony is more abstract in that there is no alimony formula available to determine in advance what alimony will have to be paid. Alimony is based on factors which are decided through divorce negotiation or by a divorce judge.

What employment rights do gay and lesbian employees have?  Can you be fired for being gay? Presently there are no federal laws that provide protections for employees on the basis of their sexual orientation. Since 1993 various form and versions of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA) has been pending in congress.   The ENDA would ban employment discrimination based on an individual's sexual orientation. The bill provides protection from discriminatory hiring, firing, promotion or compensation practices, as well as retaliation for reporting such practices. However, this legislation has not cleared the hurdles of congress and became law.

You, like most people,  have  some knowledge about workers compensation, but do you fully understand what benefits you are entitled to receive if you are injured on the job. Are you even entitle to  workers comp benefits? Most states have adopted a workers compensation act where employees give up the right to sue in civil court in exchange for a no-fault system. This type of system benefits the employee by offering compensation regardless of whether they were at fault for the injury. The only thing the employee has to prove is he or she was injured on the job.  The trade off with a no fault system is the employee is limited in what benefits  that can be collect. If you are injured on the job you must first file a claim for workers comp with your employer and/or  their workers comp insurance company. Once your claim has been filed and processed, you would then be entitled to be paid wage loss benefits for as long as you are disabled and unable to work. You are also entitle to reasonable and necessary medical treatment for your injury. In some states you may qualify for retraining or tuition reimbursement to assist you reemployment.
