  • Is it illegal to pay your child for doing a regular job by cash-in-hand?

    I know it sounds a bit weird but hear me out. I'm doing ICT A level and we're on the topic of the Heath and Safety at Work Act 1974 and obviously there's something in there to do with making sure employee's have the appropriate insurance etc. The insurance is to make sure they are covered, should an accident happen, then there's tax involved when paying employee's too. I was wondering (since in the eyes of the law it doesn't matter whether you're family or not) that if you had a son, and say you gave him some pocket money for doing some daily jobs, it would technically count as a job. Could you get fined for paying him cash-in-hand instead of doing it formally? I know there's probably something to do with the number of hours, but let's say we ignore that. Could you? (There's no real purpose behind the question, I'm just curious)

  • Problems with my mother...?

    I'm 25, and my mom is super uninterested in my two kids. She's never babysat for me, when she sees them, she says hi to them, but doesn't hug or kiss them. Even in desperate situations, like when my husband got into a car accident, and broke his hip, totalled our car, and I was 8 1/2 mo pregnant and I had to go to the ER for my husband, she still wouldn't watch my son, bc she "had to work"..... she owns her own business, it's something she totally could've postponed! She has never been there for me (well she used to when I was younger). She gets drunk several times a week, and puts me at the end of her list. Her business, and drinking is more important to her than everything else. So, how do I get to a point where I just grow up and stop "needing" her? I have a wonderful mother-in-law, who goes out of her way just to see her grandkids, who lights up when she sees them, and whose always there when we are in need. I have a great relationship with her, so why isn't that enough for me?

  • Can the law charge my son for traffic violations?

    Ok my 17 yr old son got in an accident, it was his fault and he totaled his car. They gave him 2 tickets one for following to close and one for traffic signal violation. The car was stoped at a red light and he rear ended the car. So he was not following to close and he did not go through the light. So my question is can they charge him for these violations? And would I do good to fight them in court or get a lawyer? Thanks in advance for any advice!

  • Can I sue after a car accident causing totalled vehicle - in ontario?

    Yesterday I was involved in an accident, and I want to know if we can sue the guy who hit us? btw, we are in Ontario. We were stopped at a red light(with a big back up of cars), and a huge like off roading monster truck was speeding along and didn't break at all, and crashed into the back of us,and we hit another suv infront of us. My van was totalled. Insurance will only give us the value it is at right now for the van, which is only 2 years old, but they no longer make these vans. Is it possible to sue for this loss in money? We cant really afford to pay another 20k, to upgrade to the vehicle we lost. My mom (which was driving) also does daycare at our home, and won't be able to provide, due to pain,etc it has caused, which is our only income in the house. We weren't in much pain yesterday, but now it isn't possible for us to get even dressed alone. We know we have whip lash, but going for xrays etc. Can we sue if there is something medically wrong? The guy who hit us, was maybe early early 20's, and probably wont have all that much money,but is it possible to get what we need to survive at least? Thanks in advance

  • Do you drive a car with the Air Bag light on?

    Your modern car records how many times you drive it with the light on? If you get into an accident and a passenger is hurt , he can sue and get the information from the cars computer that you drove it "x" times knowing it was unsafe and never fixed it, thus winning with a law suit with slam dunk? If the person dies you may also incur criminal charges!

  • Traffic Question?

    Say you're at a 4 way stop red light. the north and south have green. theres a person at the front of the line needing to turn left. can the traffic from behind him go around him and continue straight or is it the law to stay behind him and wait until his way is clear. If this is seriously legal no wonder so many accidents happen.

  • In Ontario, is there a law that forces you to pay a towing company if they towed your car from an accident?

  • Student driver at fault in minor car accident, many questions?

    I'm 15, and I've had my learner's permit for nearly a year. I'm SUPPOSED to be getting my license in less than a week. However, a few days ago, I managed to cause an accident. It was a minor accident, and I backed into a parked car. No one was in the car I hit. My car doesn't have more than a scratch (We aren't going to make a claim obviously.), but the car I hit has a cantaloupe sized dent. It's not near the gas tank, and it's not on the door, and it's only on one section of the car. (Someone that was a witness told me that that somehow made it better..?) Also, the car I hit was not in a legal parking space (The cop noted that.), and the accident occurred on private property. I was NOT alone. I had a licensed adult with me, and I had insurance. However, I neglected to bring my permit. I was able to give the cop my license number though (I had it memorized, and it was correct.), and he didn't cite me for not having it. My questions: Will this affect me getting my license? What's going to happen to my insurance rates? Thanks for the help. I desperately need it. Also, the guy who owned the car I hit had the same insurance company as I do (USAA), and I live in Georgia.

  • How can someone be anti-gun?

    I don't understand how someone can be anti-gun, what is their thought process? 1.)It can't be based off of accidental deaths, because there are far more deaths from other accidents, such as vehicles. If one were concerned with accidents, they would be anti-car, so that is ruled out as making no sense. 2.)It can't be based off of guns killing people, because people who are killers, kill regardless of having a gun, in addition, someone who defends themselves with a gun has a much higher chance of survival and fighting back. ---In addition, guns can not be taken away from criminals, because they do not abide by laws, because they are criminals, so they will not turn in their guns, and go to "no gun" zones with guns anyway.. If it worked that way, we'd just put a "no bomb" sign on airplanes and stop all security, b/c we now have a law and a sign. So that is ruled out and makes no sense. Since it can't possible be any of the things in 1 and 2, how could one justify anti-gun beliefs?

  • Illegal Mexicans in the USA why not remove your front door, back door, fences and let anyone come in?

    Why don't you let anyone into your home who wants to eat your food, sleep in your house, use your phone, (long distance no problem), steal from you or break any law without having to pay restitution, drive your car without a drivers license, get in an accident with your car without having to pay your damages, start a street gang in your neighborhood, drive by and shoot people in your neighborhood. And then demand that you provide all of these things or they will claim you are a racist if you won't provide everything and more. You see this country is not a big house looking to provide free services to whoever wishes to storm our borders. You can only fit so many people in a house to make it run smoothly.

  • What really happened with South Africa?

    I remember the last years of the white ("Apartheid") government in South Africa; the US and UK were leading an international boycott and massive pressure campaign against the South African leaders, calling for them to step down and let the ANC (black revolutionaries) take over. I didn't pay terribly close attention at the time, but I do remember reading one stunning fact... that black South Africans were not trying to escape South Africa... on the contrary, many blacks from other African countries were trying to get INTO South Africa, while still under the Apartheid system, because conditions were much better in SA than in their own countries ruled by black leaders. So that was interesting. Over the years I've heard over and over again that South Africa has the worst violent crime rates in the world, and that, just for example, people are afraid to stop at red lights at night time, because car jacking is so common that people think it's safer to just drive right through a red light and break the law and take a chance of a horrible accident (car jacking = criminal approaches your car, points gun at your face, orders you out of your car, maybe shoots you anyway, and then drives off with your car). And just recently I heard on the radio here in the US that black people in South Africa are worse off today than they were under the Apartheid government. And it got me thinking - wasn't the whole point of the handover to black leadership to improve the lives of black South Africans? I guess not. So what was the real reason? I know South Africa was originally a Dutch colony, which the British took over, and then somehow became an independent country ruled by Dutch South Africans. My theory is that the British wanted to regain control of South African gold and diamond mines, so they made a deal with the ANC and pressured the Apartheid government to step down (in the name of "human rights", but actually for economic reasons). I'm guessing that somehow British companies got the upper hand in SA after the ANC took over. Am I right? Can anyone shed light on this? PLEASE don't answer unless you really know the situation. Thank you.
