Can a person who resides in Noblesville, Indiana and works

Can a person who resides in Noblesville, Indiana and works in Westfield, Indiana be terminated by her employer of many years. She was on Family Medical Sick Leave caused by a chemical psychotic reaction as a result of two doctor-prescribed medications? The employer stated in a Fed-X letter that they were terminating her because of job abandonment? She has always had superb evaluations and was always devoted to her job and employer. As a result of this one psychotic episode, she was hospitalized for four days from September 10, 2016, and dismissed on Sepember 14, 2016. However, she was not released to return to work until she obtained a signature from the attending physician stating when she could return to work. After she was dismissed from the hospital, the same physician told her to go home and rest and he made her first appointment with him for today, and apparently he would not or could not sign the form. Her employer first sent a copt of the form to her email at work which she could not get at home, of which they were aware. They also did not make any telephone calls to her husband who was listed as her first emergency contact. She has until the 20th of this month to get the signed form(s) to Cigna (sp.?), her employer's insurance carrier, to officially file for the FMSL. Sorry this is so long, but I felt I had to give as much detail as possible. Also, is there free legal assistance in Noblesville for employment law? One last thing--she was diagnosed during her hospital stay with bipolar disorder. She also has a permanent disibaility casuse by a fall incurred on a working cruise with her employer. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in? The employment lawyer's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost. Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: The state of Indiana. Her employment was full-time. Just how expensive is JustAnswer. She has no money to spare at this time. I believe Indiana is a "fire-at-will" state, but do not think that they can simply ignore their obligations under the FMSL Act or the ADA,JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No and thank you.

I mean to say that nurses have come into work before stated

I mean to say that nurses have come into work before stated that had some issue of one kind or another and left. When that has happened the remaining nurses simply divide up that nurses patient load and keep going. Surely it's an inconvenience but no where close to being out of the ordinary. I left that day because I was so upset over the lack of concern over my payroll issue and then subsequently how the nurse supervisor closed me in and accused me out loud of Patient abandonment that I was beyond incensed. Having stayed would have certainly turned into something physical. I was scheduled off that next day and spoke to HR that Wednesday. There were not several days over which I did not show. I was told by HR not to come Wednesday though I was scheduled.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: GeorgiaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: at willJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

My employer changed my hours and I can't accommodate them

My employer changed my hours and I can't accommodate them due to lack of childcare for my daughter prior to her going to school. I explained this to her and at first she understood but then changed her mind and became adamant that I work the new hours. She claims now that she told me in my initial interview that tgese would be my hours which is not true. HR got involved and said she wouldn't budge and that if I can't work those hours I needed to send in my letter of resignation. I contacted an attorney who advised me against doing that. He said that since I was told not to return to work because I couldn't wirk those hours that I should send a letter that my employment was terminated. I did that today and HR contacted me saying that it would be in my best interest to resign since I wasn't officially terminated. I would not do that. My Union got involved and said that if I didn't report to my desk tomorrow at 7:30 it would be considered job abandonment. These were not the hours I had agreed upon. I don't know what to doJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New YorkJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full time, I am a member of a unionJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

I'm back in Rio on Thursday without Rx's needed. Understand

I'm back in Rio on Thursday without Rx's needed. Understand that this Dr. was my friend for 25 years as well. I would not lie on an affidavit for his side so I was subpoenaed by his partner. told the truth and this is the current position I am in. Do I file a complaint for Patient abandonment since no formal notice was sent by the Dr. allowing me 30 days to find a new physician. Be advised I will work on the games in Rio without any meds which was his program since he would not approve spinal surgery.

I work as a handy man. Ocassioanly I barter work for Items

hello, my name is***** work as a handy man. Ocassioanly I barter work for Items or even work for work. I came into contact with an autobody shop in Azusa Ca. that was in need of some electrical work. After to speaking to the owner of the shop we decided we could barter my electrical services for work on a car I owned and was having problems with. I completed some work Joe and I didnt hear back from him for a while. I attempted to call him numerous times but never got an answer. The voicemailbox was always full and it never allowed for a voicemail to be left. I was in the area a while later an decided to stop in and personally pay a visit, I was greeted by a visibly irritated Joe. He accused me of ABANDONING my vehicle and also accused me of causing a fire to his shop roof because of the electrical work I had done. In hopes of coroborating on his story he asked one of his workers about the ROOF WORK that had to be done, the worker responded with, "Oh yeah, cause of the leaky roof". Joe quickly changed the topic back to my abandoning my vehicle. He said he had to move it to another location. He said if I wanted to see it I would have to talk to his insurance company.
