Legal Answers
Q. Does the revised nonprofit corporation act take precedence over an HOA's bylaws and CCRs? Thank you!!
A: It depends upon the provision in question. Many portions of the nonprofit act provide, “unless the governing documents provided otherwise…”
Q. Can an employer ask you not to file a claim if they offer to pay any of your out of pocket expenses?
A: Not file a claim for what?
Q. Is forced overtime legal? And if so, is there a time limit for prolonged forced overtime?
A: An employer can require you to work as many hours as they wish, provided they compensate you in accordance with overtime laws. They cannot "force" you to do it, in that you can decline, and quit or get fired. If your employer is making you work more than you want, I'd suggest that you try to find a new job. It's much easier to find a job when you are currently employed and don't need to explain why you left your last job.
