I have been harassed by my co-worker and recently

I have been harassed for years by my co-worker and recently there was an incident where she intentionally pulled the file cabinet on me while I was in front of it. I took the incident to HR and now HR is using it against me. I applied for a position and was told they would not interview me because of the incident. Is this fair? Can I do anything?JA: OK. The Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I was just told today they would not interview me.JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else the Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: I don't know where to begin. The co-worker is an employer that was hired by a former manager. She was hired by him from her church. I am a black lady and she is a white lady. Over the period of years we have had difference confrontations. I have been to HR more than one time and they just keep saying we should get along. She shouts at me and this has been witness by the co-workers. I consider her bulling me and feel this is a hostile environment for me to work in now.JA: OK. Got it.

I started my new job on 1/6/2016. I was hospitalized

I started my new job on 1/6/2016. I was hospitalized for a week 3/4-3/9, returned to work on 3/14. I only had positive reviews (I have records) until I came back to work. At this time I was informed that I don't have the fundamental or basic skills and don't think that I can contribute to the team. i am a type one diabetic, volunteered this info during my interview, so they were aware of my disability. I have been so stressed out over this review that I became very ill again yesterday. I'm also afraid to go back to work. I'd like to take a disability leave. I also think I have been discriminated against.

Recently my firm Morgan Stanley gave both the Business Service

recently my firm Morgan Stanley gave both the Business Service Managers and their Risk Officers who work together on a management team a letter mandating that they need to get the Securities License 65 or 66 for Managed Accounts even though this is not required in the state of New York. Several of the Business Service Managers including myself were threatened with losing their job and would either have to take another underling position or take a package out of the firm if not completed by December 18th. there are approx 6 BSM's who did not complete this in time including myself. Several of these people were given extra time to complete. I was not. My job was posted on the Internal job site on December 24th , no one else's job was posted. I am 67 years old and a woman. worked for firm for 15 years.The Risk Officers who received the same letter requiring registration have not been hassled and do not have to lose their jobs if not completed, I know of apprx 8 of these people in our Manhattan offices. When I asked Human Resources why the disparity, they told me Upper Management has decided this pertains to the Business Service Managers only. even though the Risk Officers are the people who actually need the 65 or 66.I have received the departure package from the firm and don't know if I have any other legal option other than signing this paperwork?The fact that anyone can see on Finra (public information) who has these licenses is not something our Human Resources recognizes.Do I have any legal recourse before signing this departure package?

My boyfriend had to pay back unemployment (unfairly) and we just got a letter in the mail

My boyfriend had to pay back unemployment (unfairly) and we just got a letter in the mail saying something about a warrant being satisfied? Does that mean he's done paying?This happened after we challenged them several times asking for a fair hearing which we still never got.How do we find out if us challenging was the reason for this being released? Can we get our money back then?He had a job and had stopped collecting unemployment when they audited him so obviously he had been seeking employment.

On March 10, 2015, I was on my way to work, but at different

On March 10, 2015, I was on my way to work, but at different location, because I was told by manager to go help out at another branch. I was involved in a serious car accident on the highway, that resulted in multiple injuries including a severe concussion.I was negligently hit by a truck. He unsafely changed lanes without looking. Anyways, my concussion caused me to forget what I needed to do that day or where I was planning to go. I remember having a doctor's appointment but I think I cancelled it and decidedto go to work early to pick up extra hours, which we are allowed to do. I filed a claim against the at fault driver, and I reported the accident to my employer but I didn't file for worker's compensation until recently. However, I don't recall what I had toldmy employer at the time of the accident, so I don't know if I had said something that they might use against me in my worker's compensation claim. I suffered shoulder and wrist injury that contributed to carpal tunnel as well as a rotated pelvis and Sciatica,severe concussion, PTSD, aggravated depression and anxiety that resulted in a very serious suicide attempt. I foresee that they will challenge my claim, especially since my employer is self insured. Do you foresee any issues with my worker's compensation claim?
