My company placed me on a one month probationary period, for

My company placed me on a one month probationary period, for technical errors resulting from my failure to check work. This took place December 5th, without any written warnings. I worked 13 days, before leaving on vacation December 23rd and was due to return to work Monday January 9th. While on vacation, I received an e-mail on Jan 3rd telling me that the probation period didn't go as well as hoped. In addition, they said, the company has lost a major client, which will impact their revenue. As a result, they said they are making immediate staffing cuts across the company, myself included.I have never signed an employed contract, or the document stating that I am an at-will employee, and I have never received a job description. Do I have any rights to request severance?

My employer just sent out an email stating that 30% of its employees work from home and they want to change the policy of working from home to make it so only 15% of its employees work from home. I asked to work at home because of my disability as well as the hours I work because of my medication. Can they ask me to return to the office for work if this is a reasonable accommodation for me?

I had property stolen from my vehicle in a valet garage, meaning once parked there, my keys are held by the garage and i have no access to the vehicle until i present my pass to leave. I know there is something called a bailment, which transfers responsibility while the car is in their possession, but I don't know if it applies in this situation, or if it even applies in the state of Louisiana. I am wondering what recourse I have towards the garage to receive fair market value for my property.
