A: I'm sorry for your ordeal. This is something that a Massachusetts attorney could advise best on, but your post remains open for three weeks. You could repost under Employment Law. If you still don't get a response, try reaching out to attorneys to see if you could arrange a free five-minute initial consult to determine if this is something cost-effective to involve an attorney in, or something you could handle through the helplines of public agencies that administer benefits. It might be a little peripheral to the scope of duties with the social worker staff at the hospital, but you could explore if they might be able to assist you. Good luck
