My husband was diagonosed with Alzheimer's last August 12,

My husband was diagonosed with Alzheimer's last August 12, 2015 at the age of 55 within four days before he was diagonosed he says that his bosses called him into a room and forced him to sign paperwork to retire on December 31,2015 he states they told him he could not leave that room and other things till he signed the papers which he did. He never received a copy of anything. Retiring would have made him ineligible for long term disability he has worked for the company for more than 35 years. The strain of that meeting upset him so much that he got up for work on the fifth day got fully dressed for work came downstairs and said I don't think I'm going to work today when I asked him why he said I just don't feel here, my husband never ever took off work, that day I asked him to please call the doctor which he did, they wanted to see him right away and the next day he was diagonosed with the Alzheimers. They ran tests and did a cat scan he had a scan in 2009 to compair it to. I found out about the meeting when the doctor said well at least he well be retiring in December I stated he's not retiring that's when he spoke up and told me they made him sign the papers. The following week he went to his office to clean out his desk his boss saw him and commented something to the effect of have a nice life you get nothing I have the papers you signed to retire. He called the HR department the next day the person he spoke to told him they could not do that, they told him they would have to talk the the HR manager about two weeks later the HR manager called and told us the retirement papers would be with drawn he would be eligible for disability for the next ten years and he set them straight and told my husband he would never have to deal with them again. I asked him to please send me an email stating this which he did. My husband has told this story to a few people who has advised him to contact the police that it was against the law for them to force him to sign the papers along with not letting him leave that room he says that he did contact the police, he states they told him a crime was committed and he should contact a lawyer, he says he spoke to a few lawyers who he says they told him he has a case against his employer. What or should we do anything about it!
