My question involves independent contractors working as a driver in my company in the state of NJ
I had an independent contractor who left the company I owned in Sept 2nd 2014. He filed a case on Sept 11th 2014 against me under the ground of CEPA. He said that he was fired because he complaint against the company and was fired. No written complaint was ever given to me aka the owner. But the complaint was filed in Sept 2014.
I had no money to hire a lawyer so I went Pro Se but there were a lot of technical proceeding issues of going to be Pro Se
There were no Interrogatories were sent to the Plaintiff, the plaintiff was not deposed even though me the defendant was deposed.
A trial date has been set to Nov 28th 2017. But now i am getting cold feet and want to hire an attorney.
What difference does me hiring an attorney make to my case 2 days prior to the trial
