I currently operate heavy machinery for my job. What options would I have if my employer found out I was on a prescribed med with a waring that you should not operate heavy machinery when taking, yet my dr has provided documentation I can preform all my essential job functions and not put myself or...

Your post seems to come from Florida, we have different laws in CA, but you are covered under the ADA, everywhere. It is very difficult to respond to your inquiry because you do not say whether you can perform all the essential functions of the job with or without a reasonable accommodation, and...Read more »
You should be very careful about recording people in private areas without their knowledge in Florida it could be a crime and you need to know what private vs public means, etc. At this point, I would speak to an attorney but you may or may not have a case depending on what type of discrimination....Read more »
My employer paid for the license for the position he hired me for. I am now moving to another office due to moving and he is making me pay him back but I never signed any contract stating I had to pay him back for said license.
Rather than be concerned about whether you should have to repay your employer you should be more concerned about being terminated if you refuse. Florida employers can terminate employees at any time for any reason.

A Florida attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for a week. If this involved an injury (you included Personal Injury in your categories), it isn't clear from the brief description what type of injury it was. If there was an injury that arose in the course of employment, a...Read more »
A large part of my job moved everyone to work from home back in March. We are all working remotely and no one plans on returning. ( Our employer agreed and likes us working from home.)

I was working at a new job and was suddenly fired after being told I was performing great 3 days prior. The owner found some typos in my work and that was the reason given for my firing.

You did not indicate whether you believe you were discriminated against on the basis of sex, though perhaps you are wondering if you were. If so, the circumstances of your work history and termination must be examined in detail to determine if you have a viable potential discrimination claim. If...Read more »
Probably because the USAF and the FAA are legally not the same employer; neither is any other federal agency the same as the FAA or the USAF. FYI: Every federal agency employer is different from all others; and the military civilian corps is completely different than that of any federal agency.

This pandemic situation is very difficult for everyone involved, including your bosses who are at work on the job too. You are obviously one of the best employees--or else you would be sitting at home with the rest of the employees not asked to come in.
Under the new Families First Coronavirus Response Act, or FFCRA, most employers are required to give you 80 hours or 2 weeks paid under your circumstances. I would ask for this to be applied to that time, to be paid and have your pto restored. If they deny, you can contact the Department of...Read more »
As you can understand this is a new area of law and we are all still learning. Center for Disease Control guidelines do now take precedence over Americans with Disability Act regulations. My concern here is your phrase "ask you to produce a test (result presumably) as opposed to making you...Read more »
