I am a dialysis patent. I was friends on Facebook with a number of RN's and technicians from my dialysis clinic. About four months ago the management of the clinic wrote a policy for their employees saying they can NOT be friends on social media with patents. Can they do this?

I have a question about employer disability insurance. I am

I have a question about employer disability insurance. I am currently on disability due to the progression of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). For the past 15 years I have paid extra from my paycheck in order to gain additional funds if I should ever go out on long term disability. Before I went out, I was notified that my position was being eliminated due to the acquisition of my bank by a larger bank. My termination date is October 14th. Because of my position, I am entitled to 10 weeks of full pay & 26 weeks of STD which I am currently receiving. I am being told by HR that I cannot collect my severance package (36 weeks pay) & the long term disability benefit that I paid for at the same time. They said it was either one or the other. The LTD would not take affect until January 7th when my STD ends. The company's LTD policy states that I would receive 49 months pay or until I turn 65. The 49 months would come first. Plus, I keep getting conflicting stories from HR - one is that all my benefits would end on the date of my termination & the other is that the new bank will accept all current disabled claimsregardless if you are an employee or not. My question is, can they withhold my LTD benefit from me ? Sorry this is so long.

I was just terminated from my job (of 4 years) today. I feel

I was just terminated from my job (of 4 years) today. I feel that I have been targeted, and bullied out of employment. I have been accused of inappropriate behavior towards the staff as well as the resident. I have been accused of poor and unsatisfactory performance and attendance issues. As a result I have suffered loss of wages along with emotional and mental anguish. I would like to consult with someone to discuss these issues further in depth and to understand and excersize my rights. Thank you.

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'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.

Recently my firm 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?
