I am in management position that I going to scale down due

This answer was rated:

I am in management position that I going to scale down due to a stroke 1.5 years ago. My boss will do a hybrid of my job but wants to put a 90 trial on it. What are my options?
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Indiana
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: What do you mean?
JA: What confuses you?
Customer: What would be filed or reported?
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: No
Are you asking if they can let you go? Severance related? Change the position?
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
They will change the position with less responsibility and less money, but add a 90 trial period as if I was a new employee.
The change is legal. The probation is not and suggestive of discrimination. You can oppose it. martindale.com and findlaw.com are both excellent lookup directories. Both highly rated. Both used by lawyers. Easy to search and find local options. if needed, If you sue in court you may end up with a judgment. The judgment generally allows you to levy on bank accounts, lien real estate and work with the sheriff office civil enforcement division. Many lawsuits result in settlement - which expect the judge to encourage. The eeoc is a federal agency charged with reviewing discrimination complaints. www.eeoc.gov is its site and you can pursue a complaint using it. You want to prepare your case by creating a time line starting from the earliest event. For each event, write down key details and witnesses and if there is a document that relates to it, save it and refer to it. This timeline can be very valuable in narrating your case and presenting it later in a concrete and specific way.
Often these options are not needed if you or a lawyer speak to HR
