Again I was just looking for a loophole to get him a fair settlement. I'm not looking for a million dollars but it would be nice to get his college paid for.
Patrolguy, Thank you I appreciate for your concern about children's services and my parenting skills. I am 1000% sure I would not have allowed my son to do anything I knew was illegal. My mistake not being versed in federal and state labor laws. Lesson learned and I have since read all state and federal labors laws/codes along with many other state laws. I entrusted my son to his employer. I knew (at the time) he was asked for a new work permit not that he was told not to work without it. He assumed when the employer called him and said 'hey I need you to work' everything was cleared for him to come back. I did not speak to either the temp agency or the employer. He handled this on his own. He had worked for the employer for over a year prior to this happening. He had a work permit on file but obviously it was expired since after the accident the temp agency asked me where it was and tried to say they were unaware of him working. If the temp agency had an concern with him working why did they process his pay for over a month without calling and saying-hey wait you aren't cleared to work-it is a small branch office where we know the manager personally. So again why would I question this? Both the temp agency and employer knew he was working. Hindsight is 20/20 for sure. With the new information their attorney provided me at the first hearing it opened my eyes to the type of guys he was working for.
