Does being an "at will" employment state have any bearing on

Does being an "at will" employment state have any bearing on ADA issues?I've recently given my manager a letter from my Therapist detailing diagnosis of Attention Deficit and Adjustment Disorder/Depression.I think one or both of these constitute ADA protected scenarios.I don't really know for sure how this might change how I can be treated by my company/manager.I am in the final 2 weeks of a corrective action period which was brought due to factors possibly related to the mentioned diagnosis.Hoping that things go smoothly although I feel like they are making it hard for me to pass through this period.

We are a NJ employee and own a restaurant. We have an employee who is a server, is consistently late and has been leaving early. When she is at work, her job performance is minimal at best. This week she advised that she is 7 weeks pregnant and will no long be able to go up and down the stairs (as we have 2 dining rooms), will not lift trays to serve patrons their dinners and complained that she is unable to lift the tablecloths to set up the tables. We advised the employee that she didn't need to carry a pile of tablecloths and could set up one table at a time.If we wanted to terminate her employment what would be the ramifications considering she is pregnant. She has provided any documentation from her physician advising she is unable to perform her job duties nor has she requested an accommodation.

I work in the casino industry. I was hired as bonus eligible

I work in the casino industry. I was hired as bonus eligible 6 years ago where we were expected at certain titles to "volunteer" for additional duties during special occasions. It used to be enough to volunteer at my level, supervisory, at team member celebrations. Now we are expected to volunteer at large events doing anything from cashiering, food service, EVS, etc. When we have signed up for a position, they have come back and changed the duration, specifically asked certain employees to move their times for others, etc. and we are being tracked on what we do "volunteer" to work on in order to get a bonus at the end of the year. I still do volunteer for the team member celebrations during the year. I feel this is harassment. Would this be considered harassment?

I have been with the same employer for 10 year's and have never been counseled or written up. Then out of the blue was given a PIP.

My husband was told he was out of remission and need to have another bone transplant.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New yorkJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: My work fell behind. I had emailed my supervisor and told her what had to happen at a certain time and she never replied or processed my request. On my returned to work I requested help to catch up on my work as nothing ha been done since I left.

No nothing was filedJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: This happened in sept. 2016 and since then I have unbelievably stress, depression and a total sense of hopelessness.

I was employed by the U.S. Air Force, at an Air Force Base

I was employed by the U.S. Air Force, at an Air Force Base in California. I believe that I was wrongfully terminated, placed in an hostile work environment, harassed and retaliated against. I understand that I would bringing a lawsuit against the United States of America if filed in Federal Court. What I don't understand is why I can't bring a claim under the First Amendment against the United States of America? What Federal Laws are out there that protect Federal employees against employers like the United States Air Force?
