    You should contact an attorney to examine your options. It may be best to join the class action, or it may be best to pursue a case on your own. An attorney who has experience with similar claims would be in a good position to discuss your options, and help you decide on the best approach.

    You should work with your doctor to clearly explain any physical limitations that you have, and present those limitations to your employer. You can then work with your employer to find ways to accommodate you in order to perform the job that you were working, or to find another position that you can perform with or without an accommodation.

    You should speak with an experienced employment law attorney. You may have rights under state or federal laws that protect your right to be paid during the transfer period. Also, you need to make sure that your rights under the employer's maternity leave policies and the FMLA are honored. You may also still be able to file for disability benefits. With a review of the documents you have and the employer's policies, an experienced employment attorney should be able to assist you.

    If you wish to pursue a claim of sexual harassment, the first step that you would need to take is to initiate a discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or the Kentucky Commission on Human Rights. The deadline to file a complaint with one of these government agencies is 180 days from a discriminatory act. You need only file with one of these agencies, as long as the complaint is "cross-filed" with the other agency. A complaint is required if you want to...

    From your description, it appears that you may be the subject of retaliation and/or discrimination. It makes sense for you to start talking to experienced employment attorneys in your area. Finding the right lawyer can take some time, and you don't want to wait until your employer takes the next step. I would recommend that you start contacting experienced employment lawyers in your area, and discuss whether it makes sense to initiate a discrimination/retaliation complaint.

    Finding the right lawyer can take some time. So it would be best to start talking to different lawyers who have experience with sexual harassment cases. Once you have found the right lawyer, your lawyer will be in the best position to fully evaluate your case and help you determine when to request your right to sue letter.

    If OPM was the agency that rejected your application, and you feel that you were discriminated against, you should contact an EEO counselor at OPM to initiate a discrimination complaint. If the agency that rejected your application is a different federal agency, and you feel that you were discriminated against, you should contact an EEO counselor at that agency. The deadline for contacting an EEO counselor to initiate a discrimination complaint is 45 days from when you learned that you did...
