The only thing I can add to Mr. Haskell's answer is that time is of the essence. I'm not sure what you mean by "I filed Discrimination but, the lawyer declined," but if you mean that you filed a claim with the EEOC, and your claim was denied, you need to consult with a lawyer as soon as possible. Good luck.

You can be part of a general lay off while on FMLA leave. The question that I have is whether or not youremployer gave you proper COBRA continuation of benefits notice in a timely manner. If not, you may have a COBRA case against your employer for the health care costs that you paid. You should discuss this with an employment lawyer. www.nela-ga.org is a good source to find employment lawyers in Georgia.
