On Oct 18th I received notice that my position was eliminated while I was on STD. The letter I received indicated while on STD my current disability leave would not be impacted with no immediate action required from me. I was contacted by my Director to advise of the situation and was told to call him once I was ready to return to work and they would go through the next steps with me. As I’m still considered an employee, I was not provided with any details pertaining to a severance package as of this date. In mid December I transitioned from short term to long term disability and I am still currently on LTD. Is or will my severance package be compromised once I’m cleared to return to work since the notice was given while on STD.
I've been at my job for 7 going on 8 years and since day one the other associates have not been following basic and vital heath and safety practices. for the past many years I have always said these problems to ppl of management, my bosses, coordinators, and regular associates. these problems run from garbage being on the ground, metal clips on arms that "should" be taken off the arm completely ( if a metal clip falls, it can hurt and or kill). rugs are not hanging as soon as they come in, which leads to a pile of work for the future person. I have seen 9 recovery rugs in the back. all these problems have been going on for years and a few weeks ago after seeing 9 recovery rugs, clips on the arms I in a way hit my point and I raised my voice at my back room manager that I constantly have to deal with this and no one cares to comply with heath and safety and the previous associate giving me double work, after saying that he said I didn't work the weekend. after that my managers had a talk with me that day and said it's not me that should worry about rugs and they put me in the back room for 2 weeks. at which soon after I made a slite disagreement with my back manager about doing a art skid we didn't have space for art at the time and a fellow worker over heard me being a little loud in my tone about the subject but at the time when I raised my voice at my back room manger it was not the same tone. then 2 mangers in a way corner me I felt very panic, anxious, exasperated and ask me to step aside and talk and laura, the manager said you have to stop freaking out like this I replied I'm not. then we went to the office and broke down in tears because I'm being talk to for being to professional, asking questions that I "shouldn't" worry about certain things but over 80% of the time I "have to" worry about l these things. after that meeting I went home and they said, "Take a few days off, then my manager Laure called me and said paperwork for your doctor is coming and get him to sign off on that. after giving my doctor the papper work he said "no" to the 3 questions that this is not in any way Medical. I had to sign this paper disclosing my medical records to my boss when this is not a medical matter so I didn't sign anything. Now I need a direction on what I should/could do what are my rights/severance pay?
Hello... I am off on medical leave and have been for the last 2 years. I am being asked to start a new job with the federal government. I order to do so, I would take my retirement from my present job and start with the federal government. My questions is.... Can the federal government ask about why I have been off for the last 2 years and can they request my medical records and employment records from my current employer.
Hi. May son is 30 and has recently been diagnosed with autism & had been on mental health leave for two months. He went back to work last Thursday and panicked…sending an email resignation.

They will not give him his job back…does he have a leg to stand on?
