As an employment lawyer representing people across Pennsylvania, I constantly see HR departments (like yours) misapplying the legal standards when it comes to disability, ADA, and the FMLA. Since you case is rather intricate, you will need a full consultation with a Pennsylvania employment lawyer as these issues can become pretty nuanced. It would also probably be a good idea to retain an attorney and begin asserting your rights while you are still employed.
Kraemer, Manes & Associates LLC ("KM&A") only offers general purpose information and in order for legal advice to potentially be rendered, as per our policy, a person must contact KM&A through the web at lawkm.com or through Attorney Michael Kraemer who can be reached directly at 412-626-5560. Further, Avvo makes it extremely clear that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only (i.e. nothing posted to Avvo is legal advice) and does not establish an attorney-client relationship, nor are any communications privileged. At KM&A, we devote our practice to Employment, Business, Personal Injury and Litigation. Employment includes discrimination based upon age, disability, gender, sexual harassment, race, national original, overtime, unpaid wages, military service, among other things. Business includes representation of small business for all types of matters as well as minority-majority shareholder disputes. Personal injury includes automotive accidents, premise liability, wrongful death, and all sorts of other injuries. Litigation includes all types of civil litigation across Pennsylvania. Since an attorney-client relationship has not been created, you must talk to an attorney to see if they are willing to undertake your representation and on what terms.
