This is dealing with getting help with workmans comp or both short term disability my husband was mentally hurt on job by his supervisor which has been going on for months and finally had a mental break down at job and had coworkers witness this and his human resource whom sent him immedialty to companies epd doctors though work and they said it was ptsd then he went to his doctor that took him out for over a month cause his mind was not right due to the mental abuse at work by his supervisor and he is like this to others and they complained to human resource about this person and everything is documented including phone texts which are on work phone and his supervisor even shows up after hours to our house to talk about work and his family and my husband was later advised by his doctor to tell his supervisor if he shows back up he will call police. My question is due to he is 45 and have been working since 11 and have been on this job faithfully for over 12 years always on time and his hr even said this no problems at all but since this new supervisor has been on the job since Jan barking non stop orders and mental stress he had a break down on job and got emotionally and was later put on medication by his primary doctor and taken out of work and now seeing a therapist what can I do for his next steps he really cannot go back he is no longer mentally there and his doctors are in agreement so should I pursue workman comp along with short term disability ?

I am a 25 year special education teacher. I was injured at work by a student and had surgery 11/15. My hand still will not open and I am now seeing a 3rd doctor. My work benefits are ending 3/17. I am getting worker's comp. I received a registered letter from my school district asking that I retire, quit, or go on an unpaid leave of absence. My goal has always been to get to 30 years for the maximum retirement benefit. My years of service have continued during my absence, but will stop with the end of my district benefits. Do I need an attorney before committing to anything on paper, and what speciality would be best for my situation?
