Recently, I have received an offer for a position,

Recently, I have received an offer for a position, negotiated a salary, and a few days later had the offer withdrawn. I was about to accept. About a year ago, another opportunity was on track (it seemed). After making arrangements for a tour and an interview, the opportunity stopped in it's tracks. I'm curious if there is some way to determine if there is something/someone who may be poisoning my prospects for employment. Any way to verify?JA: Was this discussed with a manager, HR, or an attorney?Customer: I received notice of the withdrawn offer from HR (hiring company) today.JA: Is the employment "at will," union, full time, or part time?Customer: It was a full time position.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: nothing more

I recently had a job offer rescinded after having signed

I recently had a job offer rescinded after having signed their offer letter. They mysteriously pulled the offer days prior to my start date and well over a week after references were given and background check began. I know I would NOT have failed background and am confident references were positive though they claim they were concerned with references. Is there any way to get a clear answer as to their reasons and receive damages? I believe they pulled based on rumor of some kind.

My wife works for WV state government in higher education.

My wife works for WV state government in higher education. She's going to get fired in the next few days. She makes most of our income and she's got all of our healthcare benefits. Are there any laws about how long they have to keep us on the healthcare once an employee is fired? Kids are already on WV medicaid until at least next spring but my wife and I only have her health insurance, we haven't qualified for medicaid. We are not receiving any other assistance at this time except the kids get reduced cost lunch. We do have savings, probably enough to get by for a year if we burn it all down but that's without touching our retirement accounts.

I was informed of a harassment allegation by my manager and

I was informed of a sexual harassment allegation by my manager and Human Resources today. It doesn't appear that I have a leg to stand on here. I told them that I wasn't answering any questions today. I don't know if that was a bad move but they caught me off guard. Can it be better for future employment opportunities if I ask to resign instead of waiting for termination ? Thanks.
