I received a settlement order from the AJ and I am representing myself. I have filed a number of complaints against the agency way back in 1991. When the last full time interpreter left 4 years ago, I have been without an interpreter for some time on and off. the agency thinks I do not need a full time interpreter, and what supervisor doesn't need to communicate. When I was issued a CDI I was placed in a cubical and I was humiliated as the only supervisor to be treated that way for 8-9 months of doing practically nothing, no communications no meetings absolutely humiliating then suspend me 5 days without pay on a technicality that my supervisor could handle. How do I go about this settlement?
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

I'm sorry to hear about that. Could you describe for me what the settlement order says?
