Customer Question
Why do attys refused...

Why do attys refused to go against federal agencies for discrimination.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

North carolina. I am a disabled veteran with an eeo case for disability discrimination, denied the interactive process for reasonable accommodations, harassment because i was a union representative and retaliation. In addition, i had a heartache from all the stress and forced into early medical retirement. I am officially rate as 100% disabled and unemployable

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Union. I was vice president and union representative for postal worker going against the same supervisors listed in my dispute. I had a strong case and documented harassment and emails documenting my harassment. The USPS failure to follow their own guideline and procedures for all the above should be enough

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I have the first meeting with the administrative judge in December. I want to settle ( to protect my coworkers still working there.) i am currently seeking help for my ptsd, depression, and workplace trauma weekly from the VA

I am sorry to hear this. I think the reluctance stems from the sovereign immunity in that the governmental entities are typically exempt for civil suits unless there is a statutory exemption.
