Due to a federal contact change my company is laying off some people. They set a standard that anyone receiving less than a 10 percent pay cut is ineligible for severance.

I was accused of something for a business I work for. They didn't fire me but he said he has nowhere I can work at right now. I work as a Security guard and the place I was working at told my boss I can no longer work at that location because of an incident that took place and no criminal evidence has been found to support the blame that has been placed on me. I currently have nowhere to work because of this incident and I feel I have been wrongfully accused of something I did not do. All I want is justice.

I stepped down as a manager to a part time associate at my job, and because of that was told I'd receive a pay cut. But I'm still receiving the same wage. If I keep my mouth shut does the company have the ability to require me to pay back the difference when they figure it out?

I have a question about employment law, specifically ADA and

Hello, I have a question about employment law, specifically ADA and discrimination. My employer is a large (over 1,000 employees) company covered by ADA provisions. I've worked for them since 2012.In March of 2016 I had to take a demotion with a pay cut as a reasonable accommodation for my disability (scoliosis), as it required me to work from home about 3 days a week. I was a junior manager and was told that my employer "does not allow people to work remotely/from home and have direct reports". Please note that this happened after I repeatedly asked for an accommodation for months and was not taken through the interactive process - instead I was written up twice for working from home too much.Last week another junior manager was promoted within my team. All of her direct reports are located outside of the state - she manages them 100% remotely via phone and email. Another junior manager was also promoted - she has about 50% remote reports, and her manager is in a different state (proving you don't have to be in the same location as neither your direct reports nor your manager).I believe I was discriminated against when I was told that the only way for me to continue working for the company was to step down. I was told that working from home even part-time was not acceptable, however, there are two people who are able to perform all essential functions of the job with remote reports and remote supervision.Should I file an EEOC complaint alleging that I was treated unfairly as proven by the promotion of these two individuals?Thank you!
