I have a question about employment law, specifically ADA and

Hello, I have a question about employment law, specifically ADA and discrimination. My employer is a large (over 1,000 employees) company covered by ADA provisions. I've worked for them since 2012.In March of 2016 I had to take a demotion with a pay cut as a reasonable accommodation for my disability (scoliosis), as it required me to work from home about 3 days a week. I was a junior manager and was told that my employer "does not allow people to work remotely/from home and have direct reports". Please note that this happened after I repeatedly asked for an accommodation for months and was not taken through the interactive process - instead I was written up twice for working from home too much.Last week another junior manager was promoted within my team. All of her direct reports are located outside of the state - she manages them 100% remotely via phone and email. Another junior manager was also promoted - she has about 50% remote reports, and her manager is in a different state (proving you don't have to be in the same location as neither your direct reports nor your manager).I believe I was discriminated against when I was told that the only way for me to continue working for the company was to step down. I was told that working from home even part-time was not acceptable, however, there are two people who are able to perform all essential functions of the job with remote reports and remote supervision.Should I file an EEOC complaint alleging that I was treated unfairly as proven by the promotion of these two individuals?Thank you!

I hurt my back in June 2015 and directly told my manager I

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 strongly believe I,m being prevented from applying for a job that would increase my income and be a clear advancement of my career. The Staffing dept. is employing what I consider unfairly restrictive application requirements to apply for this position. The requirements allow applicants with a certain job title (Staff) at significantly lower skill levels and experience, to apply due to their given title that in no way equates to the other much higher requirements needed. In this case only one individual given the title of (Staff) has applied it is my opinion that none of the members with the title are really qualified to seek the position. This individual has the opportunity for a position that more closely fits my work history and education. The position is a Supervisor/Manager role listed as Section Leader. The Staff member has no management experience and I feel for this reason only suggests that their considerations are unbalanced. While they are disallowing others with a higher educational as well as management experience to apply to me appears at least an unfair hiring practice. I,m not sure where I stand with this issue and could use professional advice I don,t want to appear as a whiner, jealous person while I also don,t want to give an opportunity up needlessly.would qualify for consideration

My wife is a teacher at a very prominent private school in

My wife is a teacher at a very prominent private school in our area. Her principal has clearly been bullying her for a second year in a row now. The signs are classic according to the testimonials I have read on the internet; singling her out in front of her peers, excluding her on "All Teachers" emails, constantly scrutinizing her work, sitting in on her class repeatedly (when she does not do this to other teachers), either totally ignoring her in front of others or being very hateful and rude if she does talk to her, meeting with my wife and telling her "she is only keeping my wife because she has to this year", coming in her room ranting and raving, degrading my wife and her abilities with parents who will listen, etc, etc, etc. Teachers have started telling my wife they don't know how or why she is putting up with this principal and how she is treating my wife. This is affecting not only my wife's mental condition it is also affecting her physically and caused many doctor visits and bills. She can't afford to quit and has approached HR several times and they are unwilling to do anything because this principal's husband is on the schools board of directors. They are also very large donors to this school. My wife is a different person and seems to be trapped. What are our recourse's or options?JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And how long has this been going on?Customer: We are in Texas. It started last school year and has escalated this year since school started in May.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Only to HR. My wife also met with the Headmaster of the school last year and he said to meet with the principal and "pray together and try to work it out." She tried as the Headmaster suggested and it only made the situation worse. HR openly agreed with my wife but said there was nothing they could do.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: My wife does have a lot of documentation and even has a conversation with this principal recorded on her cell phone.

I'm fighting a seniority bypass with my Union with the

I'm fighting a seniority bypass with my Union with the Auburn School District. I have been with this District for 16 years and even working at a high level than this job position of which I was bypassed. The District submitted their review of the interview panel questions and answers. I know that a much younger woman was hired outside the district. The letter reads, "junior employee was a better fit with the team in terms of building experience, demonstrated ability to work within the programs used in the guidance office, personality, and energy." I'm particularly concerned about the words "personality and energy." Knowing that they hired a much younger woman, it sounds like they are referring to my age here and discriminating against me. What do you think?

I was written up and fired the day after I asked for a raise.I asked for a bump in pay because they tried to change my hours to 50+ per week when i had been working 40 for six months (M-F) They tried to bully me into signing a document stating that I would work nights and weekends too, as determined by the GM.When I refused to sign, they said I was resigning from my position. When I stated I was not resigning, I was told to leave the building immediately.Is this wrongful termination/retaliation?Thank you!
