QUESTIONS

  • Do I have a case if I have been discrinated against and denied a job due to a disability?
  • My daughter works in a fast food place in Mesa, AZ. She does not get lunch or other breaks, during her 8 hour shifts. What can be done about this?
  • I went to the EEOC to discuss my seperation with my employers. They agreed it was unfair but could not help me because we didn't have over 16 employees in the office.(only 9) They suggested I contact an attorney, however when contacting those on the list I was given they all wanted a consultation fee of 300. or more. Is there an attorney I would talk to just to see what my rights are at no charge. I am still un-employed after 6 months!
  • My father has cancer and I had submited an FMLA with my employer. They had approved the FMLA. I was required to submit my hours of FMLA used to HR. I have no problem submitting the hours of FMLA used but my problem is when other employees who are on FMLA is not submitting the hours weekly and was not being tracked like I am, shouldnt that fall under Discrimination under FMLA? I think that most of the HR personnel are only there to help the employer but not the employees.Dept labor should enforce that the HR employees should come from a 3rd party that will ensure everyone is treated fairly.
  • Can a employer ask for my age and social security number on an online application before I have been offered job and hired?
  • I know blacklisting is illegal but is very difficult to prove unless there is a written paper trail. I believe in my case there is no paper trail it is all word of mouth. Is there anything I can do?
  • If I think that you have a "disability," what "reasonable accommodation" does your company have to make?

  • I work at an Insurance company, one of the account executive offended me and made me feel incompetent of my job just because Im an Asian. I feel that they are being prejudice. Is this ground for lawsuit of discrimination act?
  • At my current job I began outside, when my asthma began effecting me we moved inside to another position in a building where it did not make my asthma any better. Finally they moved me to a position where my health wasnt compromised, a month ago they gave me the option to go back to the two previous position that effected my health when I explained that my health was in jeopardy they kept insisting the same two positions stating they needed people their. Can I file a lawsuit for them forcing me into a threatening position?
