Hi I am going through a divorce. I have applied for a low income apartment. My original divorce filing asked for spousal support. Nothing has been decided as far as spousal support or child support.

During yesterday's meeting when I was informed of the

Hello,During yesterday's meeting when I was informed of the elimination of my position due to budgetary changes I was told that a letter would be provided by close of business reflecting the departure as the position was being eliminated. The letter has not followed yet, I do understand things may take time, we met at 11:00am yesterday. In addition, the severance package offered is for just one month's salary in return for me promising a variety of things one of which is to never sue, in most similar situations severance reflects 1 month pay for each year of service, I also have not used up vacation time of 6 weeks referred to as PTO so this money is also due. I feel it is necessary to send a follow up email to the people who informed me of the changes yesterday by email. Can you please provide a brief email format? I think I should go on record as soon as possible to keep things in order. Thanks

I work for a large company that is in the middle of

I work for a large company that is in the middle of organizational restructuring, and I have been on a medical leave of absence and on short term disability since the end of November. I was called yesterday to tell me of my separation from the company and that they would send paperwork in the mail. They said they would have had me come into work to receive this news, but my current health conditions restricts me from travel pending clearance from my doctor. They said I would receive a severance package which I have the option of accepting, but now due to my medical condition, I cannot look for other work or even interview, and now at the end of the month my medical coverage will be terminated, and with my health condition I am routinely in and out of hospitals and doctors, where having health insurance is extremely critical for me at this time. Is my employer in any violation or is there anything possible I can do?
