I am almost 36 yrs old, have a bachelors degree in business and make very good money working for a major oil company. I learned that the military raised its 'guard requirements from 35 to 42 yrs old. I am interested in doing this, is there a law that my employer must follow to allow me to leave to attend basic training for 9-10 months?

I run my own small business in Illinois. I have a worker who

Hello,I run my own small business in Illinois. I have a worker who has to leave early on one Friday a month for drill for the national guard (the kid is 19). He called me Friday morning last week saying his drill time was suddenly changed and would have to miss all of Friday. To me, this doesn't seem like something the national guard would do, giving someone that short of time to change plans and especially when they have a job. This kid is a little sneaky and has lied to get out of work before. I was wondering if the nation guard drill times can be changed like that on short notice leaving an employer high and dry without an employee or if this could be another inscident where he just didn't want to work?I also wanted to know if I have someone quit after we get laid off for the winter, if they still get to collect unemployment? And if they quit right before we get laid off, can they collect unemployment? Can I fire someone who is talking about quitting but hasn't yet?Thanks,Jon

I worked as a Paramedic for several years. While being currently

I worked as a Paramedic for several years. While being currently certified in the State of Nevada as a Paramedic I was working in Baghdad as a remote duty medic for a civilian contractor. During that time I was diagnosed with PTSD. My license in Nevada expired on 02/01/2012. During my recovery I was unable to continue my certification requirements so my license lapsed. When I went back to the Clark County EMS office and asked how to recertify they informed me that I would have to start all over and go back to school. I informed them that I was disabled at the time of my license lapsing and was unable to recertify due to that. There response was; that does not matter, you have to start all over and go back to school. Is this legal? Or do I have some type of recourse to get my license back?

Disabled Veteran FMLA

I am a disabled veteran. I exhausted my accrued leave and sick time and was approved for FMLA which I was approved for 480 hours. Doctor appointments and time missed because of my service related injury prior to applying for FMLA were applied towards the FMLA. The 480 hours of FMLA was exhausted on August 20, 2013. I had a surgery on June 12, 2013. I have been off work since then for recovery and rehabilitation. A new MRI has revealed the need for an additional surgery to be performed the last week of September. I received a letter from my employer on September 11, 2013 stating my position cannot be held and I will be terminated on September 19, 2013 if I do not return to work with an unconditional release to work. I work for the state of Texas in the UT system. I was medically discharged in 1995 honorably. I did elect for short term and long term disability insurance as an employee benefit and have received one check from Dearborn for short term disability. Do I have any recourse to preserve my employment position until recovery for the second surgery? Thank you for any guidance in this matter.
