I am currently disabled and am on disability for being
Hi, I am currently disabled and am on disability for being bipolar. My case came up for review after about 7 years of receiving benefits. I am now at the third and final stage of the review, having been denied by two case works as 'fit to work' and am now taking this to the judge. I understand that this is common, however, my mother is helping me purchase a house in the next month. If I loose my disability case and have to pay back the disability benefits I received while my case was being reviewed, could I have my home taken away from me?

Hello, I live in Illinois and was a manager at a grocery store. I quit in February due to the birth of my son. I received a call from my former employer's attorney regarding a slip and fall accident that took place three years ago. I did not witness the accident but did write up a accident report that stated the store conditions and what I had gathered from the witnesses that did see it. Now they want me to meet with them to talk about the incident. I would like to know if I need to hire a lawyer for myself since these attorneys are working for the grocery store chain and if i have the possibility of being sued by the slip and fall victim myself if they do not win against the company.I have never dealt with this before and am worried about this situation.

I recently applied for a part time job with Amazon in their warehouse. I went to the "hiring event" on 9-23-16. We were given info about the job, hours, etc. and we had to suck on a cotton thing for a drug test. At the end of the presentation we submitted the swabs and the info and were told our hire date would hinge on the results of drug and background check. I am on a pain medication with Kaiser and had taken a half tab of the RX the night before the test, so I tested positive and was contacted by the lab in Florida. They wanted a date of the last refill prior to 9-23-16. My Doctor wrote a letter stating I was on this pain management program and had been for a number of months. Not good enough, the lab wanted a picture of the Rx label, so I did that and they could not read it. In the mean time I sent an e-mail to my Dr. and told him what they wanted and to PLEASE put an addendum to the letter and please fax it to the lab. It was apparently not done and I have been denied hire from Amazon. Is it not a violation of Hippa for the lab to ask for a specific date on a refill of a controlled pain drug, and why when I specified in my e-mail to my doctor he had permission to tell them, he did not. I need a second job and the one with Amazon would have worked out with the full time job I have and I could have been making ends meet.Thank you for your time.Mary Lou Day
