Well, also, I wanted to ask, what is the next step I need to take. I have a right to sue letter from the Fair Housing and also one from the EEOC. They were clearly retaliating against me as they told me my position was eliminated; yet they retained the 'newer general manager they brought to my store, who made the same $ as me and spent all the profit, to which I have proof, and then blamed me for the lost of revenue. I also have a email from my former boss that he, the new general manager, would be responsible for the financial results of the unit and he would be in charge; yet , when I got my review, they held me accountable and then laid me off.
As for the workers comp, since my offical date of term was the 25th, and on the 24th i requested they reopen my case, I was wondering if there was anything I could do for that. I am on modified duty, but the doctor said I would have to disclose to any new employer that I am currently recieving care for a workers comp claim. Who would hire a person on modified duty with a claim?
I don't know what rights I have or what steps I should take. I have mountains of paperwork showing I was harrassed and forced from my job of 23 years. What steps do I need to take. They offered me a severance, but if I sign, I give up any rights to do anything., I don't know if that includes the workers comp rights as well.
