I am 63 years old and ready. My company offered a voluntary

I am 63 years old and ready for retirement. My company offered a voluntary severance plan that I applied for and was refused. I suspect this was due to my age and them knowing that I would retire soon. Would I have any legal recourse in this matter? This plan was worth 6 months pay and six months of subsidized medical coverage.

Had a heated disagreement w/2 co-workers that resulted in my leaving that location abrubtly and going to work at another location with our manager's knowledge and approval.However, those 2 co-workers have now filed a formal complaint against me with HR. My senior operations manager "interviewed" me about the incident and said he saw no reason for any disciplinary action towards me. In the meantime, I have been seperated from the rest of the team and informed I will be placed in another department as soon. I am new to this organization and to this team. Have only been here 2 mos and was told when hired that I was being put into a very difficult situation that was trying to be "fixed". My question is: Do I or should I get legal representation for this complaint against me?

I was fired from my job that I had been at yrs due to

I was fired from my job that I had been at for 12 yrs due to Medical Insurance fraud. I was told that at my exit interview. I worked from Texas (the company is based in California) which is an employment "at will" state, but I was told I was fired for the insurance fraud. This came about because when I joined this company in 2004, I was engaged to a woman that had a daughter, we were together until 2016 but never got married. This company moved me to San Antonio in 2008. She had to quit her job, so I enrolled her in the company's medical insurance plan (Blue Cross/Shield) being told that I could because we were in a Domestic partner relationship. We had and used the insurance until 2016 when she left me. I got married to another lady with 2 children in April. I removed the lady and daughter from the previous relationship and enrolled my new wife and kids in May. The company's HR person called and asked for a Divorce Decree, then I explained that we were never married but lived together as husband and wife the whole time. We filed taxes jointly, she was on all of our bank accounts, and she wore a ring that I gave her when I asked her to marry me. On 15, June, I was told it was my last day and that I was released for Insurance fraud. I believe this is wrongful termination. Am I correct and do I have a case to pursue?

We are a pre-school through kindergarten school. We interviewed a candidate for a teaching position we have available. We made her an offer and gave her new hire paperwork to complete. The candidate advised that she wanted to complete the paperwork at home and bring it back so that she would have more time to review and completely fill out the paperwork (which we allowed her to do).She came back yesterday and returned her new hire paperwork and it was at this time that the candidate advised her she was legally blind.Under the ADA or any federal/state labor laws, can we withdraw the offer based on the fact that she did advise us until after she had completed the paperwork and returned it to us.This position takes care of young children and infants. We are concerned that she will not be able to complete the essential functions of the job. Can we withdraw the offer with consequences?

I just accepted a new position at a large organization only to find out a close relative of mine may be awarded a contract in a neighboring department at the same organization. I'm certain this news will be of concern to both associates and competing contractors. What is the first thing I should do? I want this job very much and am afraid this news could cost me my job now!
