Been suspended from my current work place pending investigation over rumors and gossip being spread about myself and another employee being in a romantic relationship.

I cannot give promotions due to me not being the direct supervisor in that department. She started all this gossip and slander shorty after and reported it to HR.

I am a healthcare professional. I had fmla leave which

I am a healthcare professional. I had fmla leave which resulted in management retaliation for a month upon returning back to work. Then, 2 months later, I fractured my hand. I worked without restrictions, and never complained. 2 weeks later, my best buddy of 20 years died. I had a panic attack at work. I left 4 shifts for this. I was supposed to work this weekend. My manager asked to speak with me and then b had me sign a paper referral to EPA.(HR therapists) AND then she says that they will require a fit test before re-entry into work. This fit test required a drug screen. Unfortunately, after Aaron's wake, Mt friends of 20 years and I got together around a bonfire and smoked Marijuana. I hadn't done it since college. And now here I was in this meeting with a manager that dislikes me... breaking the news of a drug test.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I failed. They fired me on the spot. North Carolina.JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I was a full time employee for WakeMed in Raleigh NCJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I was an idiot and while sobbing- told the HR lady and the nurse that it was an idiot move at one of the lowest parts in my life.

My friend receives a Federal Employees Retirement System

My friend receives a Federal Employees Retirement System Disability Retirement pension. After she retired from the U.S. Postal Service on disability she held a low-paying part-time private-sector job for over a year. She quit that job to accept a different, slightly higher-paying private sector job. Two months into her probationary period she was terminated from that job.She hopes to file for Nevada unemployment insurance benefits but in the Nevada UIB handbook it says,WHAT IF I GET A PENSION OR RETIREMENT?You must inform the Nevada Telephone Claim Center if you receiveany pension or retirement payments such as:• Private employer plans• Annuity• Keogh• Deferred compensationYour unemployment benefits may be reduced if you receive incomefrom any of the sources listed above.Does her FERS disability pension preclude her from receiving Nevada UIB? She has called the Telephone Claim Center but has spent an exorbitant amount of time waiting on hold without getting an answer. Thank you.

I am entitled to request reconsideration.Here are the details.Previous Annual Paypermanent position158k annual + 25% cash bonus + 25% equity bonus + full benefitsexpense accountOffer of employment3 month contract for $30k as a contract employeeno benefits, no bonus, no expense reimbursementrequired frequent travel to Wisconsinheavy workloadI decided to turn down the 3 month contract to keep focused on finding long-term employment with compensation and demands similar to my previous position.My question: How does Illinois make a determination that I am no longer eligible for unemployment benefits?
