About a month ago, I put an HR complaint at my job after one

About a month ago, I put an HR complaint at my job after one of my employees told me that my supervisor was soliciting information about me while I was on personal leave. (recuperating from a miscarriage and concussion). This complaint led to many more meetings. After so much emotional abuse, I expressed to my employer that I was actively looking for a new job. Today, a few weeks after expressing that I was looking, my employer asked me to put in my resignation date. I'm not sure how to proceed with this. Can I refuse to put in a resignation date? If so, what can I say to them?

I hurt my back in June 2015 and directly told my manager I needed an accommodation (I also have a disability - scoliosis). It was never addressed and 2 months later I was written up for working from home and absenteeism. I again stated my back issues, it was not addressed, and in January 2016 I was written up a second time and threatened with termination. In March 2016 I found out I was not given a bonus for the year because of the write-ups. Only then I again asked and finally received my reasonable accommodation - demotion with an ability to work from home. I had to take time off work due to depression and anxiety because of all of this. I lost wages, a bonus, and experienced emotional distress. I would like to submit a complaint to the EEOC - do I have a case?

I have an offer from a company which I was terminated from 4

I have an offer from a company which I was terminated from 4 years ago. I am now on total disability, however, SSA has programs which you can return to work without being penalized. I'd like to accept the offer but do I have to tell my employer that I am in this program? Also, the employer has a long term disability benefit that starts after 1001 hrs of employment which is in the time limit of this program, can I accept this benefit?

I was interviewing with a company for a director spot at the end of July I was asked to fill-out background paperwork. About two weeks later I inquired about the status of my background and was told in email "Thanks for following up. Your background check was a full pass. We don't normally contact references during the background check stage, and will use your passed background check as an indication of good standing. The next step, given that the entire team is in agreement, would be to make an offer to you. Unfortunately, I don't have an exact date on when you can expect an update but I do know we are aiming for October start dates". Yesterday I received the thank but no thanks email. I was very surprised and wondered if they broke any employment rules
