Customer Question

My son has just been diagnosed with cancer last week. I verbally notified my employer. I had a meeting with my manager and HR and the head of HR told me I should consider moving on if I can't handle the stress of the job.
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: State of Missouri, Corporation headquarters in Kentucky. Is there a lawyer in St Louis County I can contact?
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?
Customer: Missouri is an at will state
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not that I can think of.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean when you ask if this is a racket. Are you referring to the website?

Expert:  Patrick, Esq. replied 2 months ago.

I'm not sure what happened, but I will go ahead and refer you to customer service. I apologize if there was any confusion.
