My employer just sent out an email stating that 30% of its employees work from home and they want to change the policy of working from home to make it so only 15% of its employees work from home. I asked to work at home because of my disability as well as the hours I work because of my medication. Can they ask me to return to the office for work if this is a reasonable accommodation for me?

I am the network engineer for a state government entity

I am the network engineer for a state government entity whose office is 100 miles away from home. The cost for driving is less than the cost of rent in the city. However, there are sites (colleges) all over the state which I may have to go. I have a desk at the office, but I am trying to determine what I need to do in order to deduct miles. Would it be a simple home office setup? How much do I have to work from home to qualify?

I filed for my PDL benefits to begin 10/3 since my job was

I filed for my PDL benefits to begin 10/3 since my job was ending on 9/30, but at the last minute my job was extended ( I am a contractor) so I never stopped working. I just rec'd in the mail today that I was paid for 2 days of PDL; 10/3 and 10/4. Since I work from home, and I am bonding with my newborn while being at home do I have to tell EDD that I am still working? When I went back to work after my baby, my job was reduced to PT. I didn't receive any of the info for my PDL until after I took my 6 weeks of disability so, didn't realize I could have taken them right after each other. I am also moving out of state in December.. since you have a year to use this benefit, do I need to be in CA if I need to use it later in the year due to me working?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: sorry, CAJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: at will, hourly. It started FT but when I came back from maternity leave the work had slowed and I was offered PT to come back.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no thank you

This question is for law educator, Esq. As you may recall, I

This question is for law educator, Esq. As you may recall, I was DPOAHC for my mom, who passed in June, 2016. The local lawyer is DPOA for finance of items in mom name : house contents; bank accounts; storage facility items ; safe deposit , and now probate . 1) I am remainder beneficiary of trust ; property sold to relative of founder of law firm ( no relation to current lawyer) 2) empty house now for sale. Four attorneys said to get probate/estate lawyer independent of this re: fiduciary breach and self interest ; ALL in agreement I am entitled to trust copy and accounting of what is going on. I did contact one but haven't heard back yet 2) updates: new trust advisor , who does communicate , says they are going to close safe deposit; look at and appraise storage contents ; the worrisome issue:,I signed probate waiver ( more forthcoming) and the probate judge sent letter outlining % of what lawyer (s) would get including a percentage of trust assets . 1) How can I speed up reply of attorney I e-mailed to take a look at this? Would a letter from out-of -state attorney help ( laws are different-can't advise) 2) Am I entitled to get a complete financial accounting from all parties of everything including trust assets and bank accounts as well as what has been spent ? 3) they want me to come back and go thru storage of things I want; if items are to be sold , can I bid on them ? Thanks

The school district that I work scheduled a meeting to

The school district that I work for has scheduled a meeting to discuss my accommodation plan with the following people in attendance: the HR director, an HR area specialist, the special education director, a special education supervisor and the principal at my school. One of those people will be my evaluator. I am wondering if that many people need to be privy to confidential information. It doesn't seem like that many people are on a need to know basis. Please advise. Any help appreciated.Also: The last SPED director was very inappropriate verging on intimidating during the initial meeting so I am a bit gun-shy. Also, when I submitted my doctor's update to the plan, the man assistant HR director that I turned it in to mentioned previously having had to do a "fit for duty" assessment and subsequently needing to "let her go. Not that that is what is going to happen in your case...."
