Employer offers term disability only. Brother is on FMLA and

Employer offers long term disability only. Brother is on FMLA and will be out on unpaid leave shortly. Cannot take advantage of the employers' long term disability plan because after 12 weeks they could fire him and the long term disability is only effective after 6 months. How can anyone be permanently disabled for 6 months and still have a job. Don't understand why they do not have short term disability

I am a retired nurse anesthetist. On November 2014 I was put on a leave of absence for using drugs. I met with the administrators and told them I had been using some drugs that had been left over from the days waste, but never when I was at work. I took them home , so no patients are ever at risk. The hospital was very supportive and said I could resign, call the board of nursing etc etc. Anyway, I scheduled a detox and called the Ohio Board of Nursing . I tried 10 to 15 times to call the Ohio Board of Nursing and could never get a person to answer.

EEOC, Possible complaint. I am on unpaid suspension, due to

EEOC, Possible complaint. I am on unpaid suspension, due to an email I sent to everyone congratulating an employee on a cisco test he passed.There was nothing bad in the email. We constantly get emails with the same subjects, and birthday, anniversary announcements and other good things other employees do. There is no written policy not to send emails to the everyone group, in fact it's done daily by everyone.My bosses' boss was mad because I dared to send the email and since I was not the supervisor of the person whom I wrote about, that I had no right to send the email. During this conversation, He started to yell at me a tried to intimidate me with his behavior, voice, language. I yelled at him back to stop the abuse from him. He then told me to get the f**k out of his office. That night I left the office, called 911, due to no response by the police I filed a police report the next morning. Physical intimidation, followed by verbal assault and perceived bodily harm was my worry that night, when I left my office that night.This is a big company in the galleria area of Houston. alliantgroupI believe this is in retaliation for an earlier accommodation I asked the company to make regarding hearing loss. I had to get a doctor's note to wear over the ear headphones so I could concentrate and learn a complicated programming language. In order to get that, I had to file a complaint with hr about my current supervisor as he embarrassed me in front of other workers, while I was trying to explain to him that I have hearing loss.I am currently classified as disabled in 2 ways, one physically as I have been in treatment for back injuries and have a permanent disabled placard. I also an under a doctor's care for depression.I was called Friday and told that my employment was severed and they would be sending me a settlement this week, which included ones paycheck.I have a copy of the letter I sent to everyone. I have multiple replies to the emails which are good. However the email was recalled by the director of IT. I was still able to get a copy and see most of the replies. I have a copy of the text the email tech send to me telling me he had to recall my email and had to stay late that night.I really think they need to be taught a lesson, however I think they owe me more than one paycheck as severance. More like 3 months' worth for the crap they put a disabled person through. Filing an EEOC complaint is my next move. I think or should I just accept this settlement.
