I was fired for taking prescrption medication which I had a valid prescription and it was documented with my employer. I eventually had my tumors removed that I was taking rx for after I was fired. I need to know how many yr. I have to sue.
If you are asserting a wrongful termination claim, you have two years to file a lawsuit. However, based upon the facts you have provided it is unclear whether you have a wrongful termination claim. Indiana is an at-will employment state. This means your employer can fire you for any reason, whether good or bad, just so long as it is not an illegal reason. Examples of illegal reasons include: race, gender, age, religion, disability, etc... You should probably talk to a local employment law attorney to determine whether you have a viable cause of action. If you were fired for one of the illegal reasons listed above, it will be necessary to file a charge of discrimination with the EEOC. Visit their website: www.eeoc.gov for more information. Best of luck to you.See question

Based upon the facts you stated, you may have a discrimination claim. If you really feel you have been discriminated against, you should contact the EEOC to look into filing a complaint.

Your main recourse would be worker's compensation benefits or short term disability if you have those benefits. Ultimately, the best approach would be to approach your principal or HR person and let them know you want to process the claim as work-related. Under the Indiana Worker's Compensation Act you would be entitled to all of your medical treatment being covered, wage replacement benefits (referred to as temporary total disability benefits), and potentially permanent partial impairment benefits. Best of luck to you.See question
My boss has been sending people i work with emails asking them to monoter me and asking for there feed back in the way i work, should i tolerate this?
I agree with the previous answer. Your employer is permitted to get feedback from your co-workers, customers, clients, or anyone you interact with. Indiana is an at-will employment state meaning that your employer can fire you for any reason, whether good or bad. In fact, they don't even need a reason. However, if you believer you are being treated unfairly because your employer is targeting you because of your age, gender, race, etc...then you might want to look into filing a charge of discrimination with the EEOC. Best of luck.See question

How long do you have to be off work under a Dr care to actually receive the benefits? A week? Two? Does your employer file it? Do I file it? How does this process begin?
Your employer or its worker's compensation insurance carrier should start the payment of temporary total disability (TTD) benefits after the first week. You would be entitled to recovery of TTD benefits starting the second week. If you are off work over 20 days, then you will be compensated for the first week. Your employer or its worker's compensation insurance carrier is responsible for initiating the TTD benefits. Best of luck.See question
can human resources check for changes on your direct deposit without permission?
I'm not exactly sure I know what you are asking. I wouldn't see any reason why your employer's human resource personnel wouldn't be able to check for changes on your direct deposit. That information is certainly in your personnel file.See question
This is for a debt collection case. as a defendant, what motions need to have sworn affidavits, besides the sworn denial?
Yes. In opposition to summary judgment, you must identify genuine issues of material fact in dispute and do so using a sworn affidavit made upon personal knowledge and subjecting the affiant to the penalties of perjury. Indiana Rule of Trial Procedure 56 is the applicable rule. When making the affirmation make sure you use the following language: " I swear under the penalties of perjury that the foregoing statements are true and correct." Then sign the affidavit. Good luck.See question
