LEGAL-ISH

Got a legal question?
Our favourite lawyer, Ahmed Odeh will give you answers weekly.

This Week's Questions:

1. "My neighbor's housekeeper told me that she was being screamed at, all the time. She claimed that her employer was verbally abusing her and even deducting her salary over the smallest mistakes. She wanted to leave. But my neighbor was threatening her with a lifetime ban (from the country). What can I do to help her? How can I report this abuse? I don't want the housemaid to face repercussions because of my complaint.”
2. " I had an ear ache, which I went to the doctor for. He referred me to a specialist and weeks later, the problem still remains. I returned to the same doctor twice again, and I finally ended up in the emergency. The emergency room doctor said that the first doctor actually misdiagnosed me, and the problem. And that this was preventable and would have been treatable. I have missed work and been under a lot of stress, what are my rights?”
3. "My father passed away this month, and he was responsible for all my family's financials. He did not share any passwords. He did not have a will. And from what I gather, my mother just used his credit card for anything she needed. I'm 18 and I don't know where to begin. Do I ask the bank to give me access to his account? Can the landlord kick us out when the lease is up on our agreement?"
