I currently work in Yosemite National Park so I am in

I currently work in Yosemite National Park so I am in California, but on federal land. The father of my child, Mike, also works here and lives with me.Recently I put in my two weeks notice. I had planned to change our housing, which is employer provided, to Mike's name. When I spoke with our housing manager Wednesday she said the upper management said we could not transfer our housing into Mike's name because he was not the same career band as me. I advised the manager I believed we were the same level. I was told we were not and I had a week after my last day (tomorrow, Sunday) to move out of my place. I feel the short notice and refusal to transfer names is purely retaliation for me leaving my position, which is a whole other can of worms because I am assistant manager acting as manager for the past nearly 5 months without compensation.We were offered a choice between two places "new housing" and the "T-trailers" however they are very aware we cannot accept new housing because pets are not allowed in those areas, and I have an 80 pound and 25 pound dog. So our only option is a trailer. Our current place is a small 1 bedroom (best guess a little less than 450 sf) with a small back yard for the pups. The new place is a studio about 140 sf. that doesn't even have room for our refrigerator.I looked into my original job offer and I was correct that I am the same level manager as Mike. When I pointed this out, I was told there were bands within the career bands. That's why I make slightly more than Mike. This is BS, I make slightly more ($1200 more a year) because my position is seasonal. If my pay scale reflects a undisclosed level of management this means at the store the brand new to management seasonal assistant manager (same pay as me) is above the year around assistant that has been in his position for years now (same pay as Mike) and this repeats over in Half Dome Village as well. This is definitely unfair, but illegal... I do not know. Please advise.

Story short, I just got out of an abusive relationship a

Long story short, I just got out of an abusive relationship a couple of months ago. My new boyfriend (who remains a secret for my safety) and I were caught not fully clothed in my vehicle on private property. So I have a few questions here, first the property we were caught on was a power plant that has cameras to alert the law for theft purposes. 1. Can these cameras be shown to anyone who asks? 2. Can the police officer show his dash cam to anyone who asks? 3. Can he reveal what his on body mic caught? 4. He proceeded to relay this information to another officer who wasn't there and this officer who wasn't there called my ex boyfriend and told him...is their any consequences for this police officer who disclosed this information?

I have sent NYC a “notice of claim” due to property damages

I have sent NYC a “notice of claim” due to property damages they have caused in matter “A”, as well as, I have requested several under the Freedom of Information Law “FOILS” in matter “A” in which they have denied exist. My question is since I am within the statute of limitations and provided a proper “notice of claim” as required to begin a suit case in matter “A,” can I incorporate in matter “A” an additional/addendum to matter “A,” which addresses Civil Rights Law § 50-a to be used later in the complaint as an additional cause of action under “negligence per se,” thereby submitting it as an addendum to matter “A,” so that NYC would have a complete “notice of claim” properly submitted and to be acceptable for matter “A” in New York State Supreme Court?
