The male workers can come and go from the premises whenever they want- no punching in and out with time clock.The female workers cannot do this.It seems that if this was a race issue- the answer would be obviously clear. But since it's a gender is...
It depends. If all the males are in a different job title and do different work than the women then it may be legal. If this is a non union shop you may need to get all the women together and speak with a PLAINTIFF' s employment law attorney in your area. If the males have a different job that is not being offered to females that of itself may be discriminatory or a pretext to hide a discriminatory actvitySee question

Your job is only protected for 12 weeks under the FMLA unless a union contract provides otherwise.
If you can do all the essential functions of your job with or without accommodation, you should ask for return to work with the accommodations. Employees are poorly protected by our laws. They could claim they are reducing staff and let a bunch of people go and include you and you'd be unable to show otherwise. If you are ready willing and able to work, but can't do your past relevant work, but can do other work, and your employer does not have other work, and lets you go, you can apply for unemployment. Between unemployment and comp you can not get more than you made on your job, so unemployment would basically pay a supplement to any works comp you may be getting, as long as you are making a bona fide job search for something within your physical ability and skills. In answer to part 2 of your question, if I understand it correctly, the answer is yes they can.

No one can put a lien on your Social Security Disability benefits. Immediately arrange to direct deposit them into a separate account designated (at least with the bank) as "Social Security Disability Funds" because once the SS money is comingled with other money its hard to shelter from crooks like the ones you are dealing with. Yes this is a Ponzi scheme, and it appears to me you should report this to the FTC. But No, they can't freeze your bank account or at least they can't freeze anything designated as Social Security Funds. Do not negotiate with them. Tell them your only income is SS Disability which is not attachable. Send a complaint to the FCC, and notify the receiver if in fact the documents you received are from a REAL court and not some further made up scam designed to scare you out of more money. If the courthouse is near you try to visit the clerks office (with these papers and docket number) and ask to see the file. If you can't get to the courthouse, call the pro-se clerk of the listed court and ask if there is really such as case filed under the docket number shown on the papers you received. If there is none, then these characters are committing mail fraud and should be reported to the US Post Office Police. They will come down on them very quickly. Look, they've already proven to be sophisticated criminals. Why should they stop now. I would be hesitant to trust anything without verification. You benefits in any event are safe. Just take the precaution of segregating your funds and marking them as SS and don't deposit any other kind of money into the same account. Best to use a checking account so you have access to your funds. I hope this helps you.See question
19 years since last DUI, 5th so lose license forever NYS, no money for lawyer for 2 years
if you are a United States Citizen it is unlikely Social Security will cut off your benefits, unless you are incarcerated, and if so, only for the period you are actually in jail. You did not indicate where in SE Asia you would like to move to, however many Americans live in places like Japan, Thailand, Indonesia and get their Social Security checks or direct deposits. What I sense, and its not very clear, is that you want to skip out on a court date. If that happens, there will be a warrant for your arrest issued by the court. I am not a criminal lawyer, I do not know the ramifications of that on your Social Security, so I would be careful about skipping a court date. You should ask the court to appoint a lawyer for you if you don't have money for a lawyer. You should also ask the opinion of a criminal lawyer.See question

This is not a very clear question, you may have to re-write it. I will try to see if I can help. I gather you or someone you know applied for Social Security, and were denied and are now waiting for a hearing, and this person has "been placed somewhere." Which I assume means either a treatment facility or housing or a shelter. As long as you have an address - even a PO Box, whereby Social Security can reach you, there should not be a problem. Sounds like this person really needs to talk to a disability lawyer. Most don't charge for a consultation and will handle these cases on contingency or direct you to a legal aid service that might be able to help. Did I understand the question correctly? If not, try to make it more clear and repost it.See question
