I was on medical leave due to an age discrimination age

I was on medical leave due to an age discrimination age against me last year in my previous dept.. I filed a complaint with the DFEH and it will be going into investigation within 30-45 days. I returned to work to a different dept only to find out that the supervisor who discriminated against me previously was once again my supervisor. During my interactive meeting I requested to be transferred to another dept. I was told by HR there was not any vacant positions. Is couple days later I found that my Employer advertises an Accountant position on indeed.com and monster.com. I m n accountant and feel they purposely withheld the job from me as a retaliatory move so I was forced to go back to the same supervisory if I wanted to keep my job.I returned to work on the request to work a modified schedule so I can transition into my new position. I was told by HR that they will give me 3 weeks to transition and that I will need to work with my Doctor to enable me to work full time by May 1. In addition, on the 3rd day I returned I was put on a pip. These retaliatory moves have made me uncle to perform my job due to stress and. Hostile work environment because I feel my employer is punishing me for filing a discrimination case with DFEH claim against them last year. My counselor, psychiatrist and doctor have told me to file a workers comp case for the retaliatory moves. I already filed. Retaliation case with the DFEH.If I get terminated for filing a workers comp case, does that in anyway cease my DFEH case from continuing to an investigation?I live in California

Apparently someone at my job filed a complaint against my

Apparently someone at my job filed a complaint against my company. We were working 13 hour 20 minute shifts. 1 and 20 minutes was considered training time. When we worked overtime, which was generally 12 hours, they would pay 8 hours overtime and 4 hours straight time because they considered the training time separate. This was found to be illegal. In turn, the employer decided to cut our hours to 36 hours citing that they could not afford to generate overtime. I had nothing to do with this complaint to the labor board. This seems like retaliation. My question is, could this be considered retaliation?

I live in a very small town called Rangely ,CO so I don't

I live in a very small town called Rangely ,CO so I don't know if you can help me but I work in pharmacy and had to turn my boss in for working impaired and many other illegal things she has done. My administration did nothing, and I was still having to work with her in the same office.. She found out that I was the one who was involved with the investigation and she started acting out towards me. So, I literally would shake and have anxiety attacks at work or even driving to work. I went to the doctor and he put me on FMLA. I need help in getting this taken care of so I can have my job back, patients are no longer in danger, and rumors that are going around town about me will stop. People in the pharmacy are saying degrading things to me on Facebook I have blocked them but if we have mutual friends, they will post something on my friends timeline to where I can see it. I am usually a very strong confident person who does my job at the highest of standards and now feel like I can't even go out in public. There is obviously a lot more to this and I have a lot of evidence against her and the hospital. I just don't know how to start....JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have just reported things to HR and the illegal situations to my CEO and CCOJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Well I am on FMLA and the HR, CEO, and CCO asked me to go have a meeting with them tomorrow at 11:00 am but I am on FMLA leave
