Since June of 2016, I have undergone extreme mental anguish

Since June of 2016, I have undergone extreme mental anguish and exhaustive depression caused by Dr. Rev Hillstrom's actions and unfair appraisal, and by his embarrassing and unauthorized distribution of shaming personal information to the entire equity department staff. He wrongfully breached my privacy, and was negligent and acted in violation of my rights.His lack of knowledge about the job description, culturally incompetence, inability to follow equity director and/or supervisor's protocols, and retaliatory demeanor, all have caused me traumatic and devastating consequences during the past three months. After six years of providing unmatched services to the demands of school staff, students, parents and families across the entire school district, and meeting all standards from my three previous supervisors, I cannot accept Dr. Rev Hillstrom's negative and erroneously derogatory appraisal, after knowing me just a year.

I have been working for this company for three years and in

Hello, I have been working for this company for three years and in this time they have changed my job description several times. I was hired as a nurse on the floor to pass meds. Then I was promoted to a case management position. While I was in case management I was still asked to help passing meds in nursing. After a while the demand of two positions got to be too much. I was told by her that I would now be staying in case management and do nursing in emergencies only. I would help periodically as needed a couple times a month. I recently got a new supervisor and she has decided to place me back full time in nursing. She feels case management is more of a social workers job. In a way it's a if I have been demoted. Today I was given a new schedule and new hours and told that I would be doing nursing now again full time and case management too as needed. I took vacation last week and came back to my position being changed again. I have been having panick attacks and crying at work. My blood pressure is now up and it's hard to cope with all of the new changes day by day. Can my employer keep making changes? I have nothing in writing from them. I have an apt with my doctor tomorrow to see if I can go on stress leave. This job has drained me and left me so nervous. I have lost weight and I can't sleep at night. How do I go on paid stress leave?

I gave a restriction to my employer on 10/11/16 in regards

I gave a restriction to my employer on 10/11/16 in regards ***** ***** walking over 200 yards. Around 2:30 today (10/24/16), my employer had a meeting with me in our Employee Relations department and they asked me to fill out a FMLA form and have it returned to them. Also, they didn't want me to go to work anymore and asked that I leave. Ironically, I have a permanent handicap tag for the last 7 years (I've been with my employer for over 11 years) and I've been using the handicap parking with the permit and they've always been accommodating to that. Even in my job description, it only mentions frequent walking, so I don't know why they'd ask me to take FMLA and once that runs out, terminate my position. Can you please help.
