Answer to Is cutting my hours and not giving me a raise considered retaliation

Possibly its illegal retaliation. An employer is not permitted to retaliate against an employee who engages in what is known as "protected activity." You need to consult with an employment law attorney in your area to review the facts and determine your best course of action.

Answer to What can be done when your supervisor retatiates against yoy for asking for reasonable accommodation

You should contact your 2nd attorney who negotiated the settlement agreement. Let him or her know of the continuing retaliation. It appears they are engaging in new retaliation and probably are in breach also of the settlement agreement.

Answer to STD/FMLA situation. refused to accommodate and FMLA lapsed. ODJS D/c without just cause.

The finding by ODJFS does not mean you somehow automatically win other potential employment discrimination claims, but it sure helps, and should make the employer sweat a bit. You need to consult with an employment attorney to review your circumstances.

Answer to Doctors recommendation not sufficient

If your employer is a covered employer under the FMLA, and you are an eligible employee, then your HR director is mistaken. You are entitled to 12 work weeks of unpaid leave for the birth and to care for a newborn child. The purpose of the FMLA is to enable you to balance work and family life.
