OP - TY :) did she come every day? did you reheat or plate meals? did she make one meal for everyone to share? did those meals take up all the room in the fridge/freezer? how did you find her? what did you tell her/hire her for? what time did she arrive? what time did she leave? [ Reply | More ]

Every day unless we didn’t need her. We would reheat according to the instructions she left. The kids meals off and did not need to be heated. Dinner was always one meal unless that was a special request. Lunches were typically a variation on the theme. I don’t remember what we paid her, but I don’t feel like it was a ridiculous amount. She usually came About three and left around nine while we were eating dessert.I apologize for any dictation errors. Too tired to type [ Reply | More ]

Depending on your starting point, 5-7 pounds is very doable in 5 weeks. Three words: DITCH. THE. CARBS. Going to really suck for the first week, but once you get the hang of it, it's a piece of cake and the pounds and excess water will literally fall off. Go for 1 hour walks every day and lift weights 2-3 weeks. Thank me later. [ Reply | More ]

There's a greater sense of of tradition and rootedness that permeated the DNA of certain places and institutions on the east coast. Out west, you have none of these things and no real sense of belonging, since the emphasis is on a much more liberal and "inclusive" society, but the pendulum goes too far of being so "inclusive" that it's meaningless.

Do you want to move back to the east coast? It's easier to move in that direction than getting to CA IMO. DH is european and feels much more comfortable on the east coast and enjoys the community, the aggression and directness, ability and reinforcement to work long hours and not live a "balanced" picture perfect life all the time. He finds it more familiar and real and truly likes the people and mentality. He enjoys how traditional and relatively conservative and religious it is relative to CA, which he found lovely, vacation-like, hippy dippy, and liberal to an extreme. I think people should live where they are comfortable and feel at home. I much prefer CA but don't despise NYC the way DH couldn't cope with Californian mentality. [ Reply | More ]

Ask you for her own emails? she should have access to that herself. You've to produce it in discovery anyway. I'd say exactly that, she has access to her own paperwork - the onus is on her to get an attorney to take her case. And put down a retainer. [ Reply | More ]

You shouldnt have any contact with her whether she has a lawyer or not. If she wants her employee file, she will have to follow the guidelines in CA law, meaning she has to make the request in writing, give you a fair amount to time to respond (30 days), and only ask for things the law says you have to make available (which is not everything in the file). And all these requirements are suspended if there is a lawsuit filed. [ Reply | More ]

Thank you. She requested in email form today random things. Is that enough for a writing request. AndI am also cautious because her lawyer asked me to give her 6 months severance and if I don't give it, he is going to file, and I was told not to get a lawyer until I was served. Thanks again [ Reply | More ]
General Topics 06.18.18, 01:52 AM Flag

No, I dont think it is sufficient because she did not cite employee file or the regulation that allows the request and forces you to comply. Asking officially for the file is often a prelude to a lawsuit. [ Reply | More ]
