Why it's good that sexual harassment complaints have increased

It's been less than two years since the #MeToo movement began -- spurred largely by the allegations that became public (and ultimately took down) Hollywood mega-producer Harvey Weinstein. The reverberations have been felt not just throughout the entertainment industry, but in workplaces of all kinds throughout the country.

Have you been the victim of construction fraud?

The vast majority of contractors are honest, hardworking folks who want to provide quality builds and renovations to their clients. However, just as there are bad apples in all industries, North Carolina also has its share of shady operators looking to take advantage of homeowners.

The limits to free speech at work

People often misinterpret the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution to mean that they have freedom of speech in all aspects of their lives. The First Amendment prohibits people from facing arrest (with some exceptions, of course) for voicing their opinions. However, it doesn't prohibit private employers from taking disciplinary action (including termination) against employees for saying things that others may rightfully find offensive or that involve protected or confidential information.

Common reasons North Carolina construction companies get sued

Owners often hire construction companies to build their houses or office buildings or to renovate existing properties. Many of them take their time to ask for proof of licensing and insurance and to request work references before they hire them. This isn't always good enough though. Even with customers proceed cautiously, they often encounter problems that result in them having to file a lawsuit against their contractor.

  • I recommend the law offices of Randolph M. James. He and his associate kept me informed throughout my case and were very knowledgeable about the facts surrounding my situation. Because of their experience, they were able to guide me to the proper venue where the judiciary was qualified to deal with complex issues such as mine. Thus, we received a favorable outcome. Should I need legal counsel in the future, I would obtain the services of Randolph M. James again.
