In May 2014 I quit my job due to my sister dying of cancer. I did not want to quit and tried everything . I requested more day hours to be there for my mom at night Was told NO. Asked to go Part time. Told NO. Ask for FMLA. Told no. I gave a 3 weeks notice and left in the end of May 2014. My sister died July 22, 2014. After her death I tried and tried to get rehired and was told NO. They said it had to do with the ESOP. Do I have a case for a lawsuit?

I received a letter in the mail stating i will be 100 percent vested non forfeited. They forfeited 37.679 of my 47.163 shares, this does not seem right to me at all.
I don't know if you can see my previous question, but I was
I don't know if you can see my previous question, but I was wrongfully terminated by my employer. It's also been established that there is no justice for me, since I live in Texas. With that said, I have the following question. The company where this tookplace was 100% employee owned, and I was 100% vested in the ESOP. Since I was wrongfully terminated, is there any way I can force them to waive the two year hold back period? That way I could get an immediate pay out?
We are an esop company
We are an esop company and at end of each year if company was profitable profit share check are distributed. I was discharged from said company the day before checks were distributed after six years of employment. I was told that profit share checks are only for current employees. I feel this is not right? Also esop stock wich im 100 percent vested in is only available right away if retiring. Fired or quit it gets held for five years before the begin to pay so if wrongfully discharged meaning win unemployment rights. I feel they shouldn't legally withhold money.
DOL is siding with the company regarding an ESOP valuation
DOL is siding with the company regarding an ESOP valuation for a 100% ESOP established in March 2008 without interviewing the previous owners, original fiduciary trustee or valuation firm. DOL is currently expressing valuation was incorrect. In hindsight, any valuation done prior to the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression that occurred in September 2008 can now be said to be wrong but at the time of transaction given history, the valuation was "correct." What recourse against the DOL findings does one have especially if their findings are tainted by only the company interview? (It actually appears to be collusion). Note for ESOP employees paid nothing for any shares and also retained the. 401-k. Also the company already defaulted on the bank loan which the previous owners put up as cash collateral. So employees were absolutely not disadvantaged! Previous owners also paid taxes in the total transaction amount. Both actions: payment of full taxes and putting up collateral was with full faith the company had a firm foundation and would succeed. Lastly, the company revenue has exceed the valuation every year by several million. What recourse against what is felt to be a DOL " invalid" opinion?
