Answer to What can I do if I gave management a doctors note and they did nothing about changing my department

You may have a claim for failure to accommodate a disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). These cases are very fact specific and employers do have certain exceptions such as when they can show that the accommodation would create an “undue burden” on their operations. I recommend you consult with an attorney such as myself who is experienced at handling ADA cases in Georgia.

Answer to Will I still be eligible to receive my severance pay if I except employment from another company with no affiliation

It depends on the terms of the severance agreement you signed. If the agreement is silent on the subject, there is no legal restriction against receiving severance while working for another company.

Answer to Is there a way I can protect myself from a boss who is targeting me?

Not every complaint that an employee makes about mistreatment is protected legally from retaliation. There are certain laws that contain anti-retaliation protection when an employee engages complains to management or HR that s/he believes that law was violated. Examples include the federal laws prohibiting discrimination and harassment based on sex, age, race, national origin, religion, pregnancy and disability. For example, if you are retaliated against for reporting your supervisor for race discrimination, that would be illegal. If you believe your rights may have been violated, you should consult with an attorney, such as myself, experienced at handling retaliation claims in GA.
