    What to Expect in Employment Agency Hearings

    in Legal

    Hearings with agencies are usually performed with the parties, their attorneys, and the administrative law judge over the phone. Administrative law judges handle issues strictly pertaining to employment and are well versed in rules and cases relating to their particular area of law. Sometimes attorneys are involved and other times clients represent themselves pro se. Generally speaking, an employment hearing is like a mini trial where you will present your witnesses and cross examine the other side’s witnesses. You are able to submit documents which you may wish to enter as evidence in advance to both the judge and opposing party. It helps to have these clearly identified and readily accessible during the hearing, especially considering its telephonic nature. You are usually able to have both a closing and opening statement as well. Do not expect a decision at the conclusion of the telephone conversation. The decision will come in writing and it could take several months before any such decision is rendered.


    Tune in to this podcast with Heidi Kuffel to learn more about what to expect during an employment agency hearing.

    When Does an Employer Need and Employment Lawyer?

    in Legal

    Even the most conscientious employer occasionally needs help from a lawyer. Although you can handle some employment matters on your own, a great many issues are particularly tricky and require legal expertise. Employment law can change rapidly. Courts and government agencies issue new opinions interpreting these laws every day, sometimes completely overturning what everyone thought the law meant. When you also factor in that lawsuits brought by former employees can end in huge damages awards against an employer, it's easy to see why you should seek legal advice when you get in over your head. Join Bill and Rick to learn when and why you need a business employment lawyer on your side.

    Deepertruth: The Four Last Things, Death, Judgement, Hell, Heaven

    in Religion

    The four last things that relates to Catholic teaching areDeath, Judgement, Hell, and Heaven.


    Because of the sin of Adam and Eve, the human race became a fallen race. Death entered into existence.


    Romans 5:12-14 reminds us, “Therefore as sin came into the world through one man and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all men sinned–sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law. Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sins were not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.”


    To my knowledge, only three people arguably might have bypassed death, Genesis 5:21 states, “Enoch walked with God after the birth of Methuselah three hundred years, and had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.” It is like God simply took Enoch and so his death was not recorded.


    2 Kings 2:11 states of Elijah, “And as they still went on and talked, behold, a chariot of fire and horses of fire separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.” In this case, Elijah’s death is not recorded either.


    Hebrews chapter eleven is known as the Bible’s “Faith” chapter, Hebrews 11:5 relates to Enoch saying, “By faith Enoch was taken up so that he should not see death; and he was not found, because God had taken him. Now before he was taken he was attested as having pleased God.”
