I was new-ish state employee still on probation and trying to keep a decent job with the State (CA) that was 35 miles away from my home that I could not leave. After about 5 months of this - I couldn't take anymore, and my back which I have issues with began to preclude me from making the commute. I took some time off and went on SDI. Each month I would bring in an extension from doc / they would state take as much time off as you need. Yeah right - in August of 2008 aka 8 months later. I receive a special delivery which states that I am fired for things I did before I left. Nothing nefarious nor concealed, or recently uncovered. Total BS they pulled out of their hat. After a DFEH investigation I was issued a right to sue letter dated 031710. What should I do now? What recourse do I have?
