Customer Question

Need urgently to engage a lawyer barred in New York to assist me with employment and FMLA application issues - discrimination, harassment, unpaid comp, labor law violations/compliance. I was denied FMLA military leave (26 weeks) as a caregiver for a veteran and granted the standard twelve weeks. Job suffered and was served reprimand letter following leave. I work and live in New York, am gay and HIV positive. Also have IBS. I believe my employer has not offered me all the options including sick days, paid overtime leave, paid leave, and advised me properly on the implications with respect to insurance, taxes, etc. Have not yet filed a compliant with the WHD/Dept Labor and need legal assistance to interpret the everchanging labor laws - ADA, FMLA, especially in light of the recent supreme court decisions. The lawyer should have deep knowledge of the labor law in NY, the FMLA, ADA and LGBT/HIV as well as military law issues ideally
