Is There Actually A Law Firm Out There That Actually Cares About The Individual And The Rights We Are Losing Everyday? Please Try And Help Me Out With A Solution.
If you want a labor lawyer (employment specialist) to represent an emloyee, they exist. Plenty. Hire an attorney to represent you.
It seems there might be separate legal issues you have going on here.
1) Long term disability
2) Termination of employment
Let's see if I follow.
May 2012 - Employee was cleared to return to work
Jan. 2013 - Employee applied for other jobs
March 2013 - Latest time employee could appeal decision to end long term disability. thus, the LTD payments ended.
March 2013 - Employee was terminated, retroactive to (effective on) the date the LTD appeal rights expired.
Between May 2012 and March 2013, I'm not sure from this narrative waht the employee was doing on the job, if anything.
Generally, it seems that employees and employers have different rightrs:
* An employee with LTD insurance has the right to get paid while unable to work for an extended period of time. This is governed by the terms of the LTD insurance plan. The employee is entitled to the terms, which should spell out the terms of appeal of the decision to end Long Term Disability payments.
* An employer needs to fill a job with someone to do the work. The employer does not have to keep the job unfilled, waiting for an employee out on LTD.
* Job duties need to be performed by somebody.
* When the employee returns to work from LTD, they might not have a job to return to. Often.
* Some employees are only able to do light duty jobs. Employers might not have those jobs, and can terminate the employment.
* The employee might be lucky enough to qualify for a different job with the employer. However, they compete for the open positions, against other candidates. Someone else might be considered better suited for the job(s) that open up.
* Being cleared to return to work does not mean an employee was terminated because they did not file an appeal. They might have been terminated WHEN they did not file an appeal. * The termination letter might have chosen the end of employment as the last date the employee was allowed to appeal a decision on long term disability.
* LTD appeal - I don't know the insurance plan terms; it's not my plan.
Please, seek the advice of a labor lawyer who sides with employees They exist. Look up "labor lawyer". Make sure they represent employees, not employers. Yes, they exist. I worked with dozens long ago for a labor law agency.
You need a labor lawyer to figure this out, if you want to hire one.
"Labor lawyer" or employee relations attorney are the names of specialists representing either employers or employees. You want to make sure you get one specializing in employees rights. Get an opinion; it might be a free consultation.
However, your date of appeal has passed.
Being cleared to return to work doe not mean that your job remains open while you are on long term disability.
You might not have your old job open to return to.
The employer might not be required to keep the old job open.
The employer might have had to replace you while you were disabled.
The employer might not have to return you to your old position.
The employer might not have another position for which you are the best candidate.
As A Attorney, How Many Years Of Law School Would You Have To Complete And Have Anyone Heard Of A Malpractice Attorney ??? What Is Their Career ???
I've been an attorney for more than eighteen years; so my advice might be based on outdated information. When I was researching law schools to determine which to attend, there were a couple which did not absolutely require applicants to have bachelor's degrees.
One might be able to complete law school in two and one-half years by attending summer school; however, I recommend not doing that unless you have a very special and overriding need to finish law school as quickly as possible. In all likelihood, you will benefit more by working in the law during the summer rather than attending summer school.
It is not absolutely necessary to attend or graduate from law school. There are a couple of states, one of which is Washington, which have clerkship programs: one trains to be an attorney by apprenticing ones self to a judge or practicing attorney. The downside is that you might not be able to practice law in a state which doesn't have a clerkship program because such states require graduation from an A.B.A. accredited law school for admission to the bar.
There are many malpractice attorneys. They practice in the area of professional malpractice. Probably most of them practice in medical malpractice, suing or defending physicians; however, there are many who also practice in legal malpractice, suing or defending attorneys.
Is There A Legal Aid Group Of Attorneys Who Would Accept A Legal Negligent Case?
Attorneys Have Advised That There Are Not Enough Assets For Them To Invest In Taking A Case Where The Attorney Did Not Freeze Assets And The Ex Spouse Depleted All Holdings By Purchasing Land, Truck, Home For Daughter And Gave $1000'S To His Children. The Holdings Had Been Determined Marital Property To Be Equitably Divided By The Court. Firms Have Stated That The Attorney Was Negligent, But With Only $100,000 Or Less To Be Gotten By The Plaintiff; The Case Would Not Be Worth Their Time Or Expense. So Is There A Legal Aid Group That Would Try To Recoup The Loses?
You need to sue the SPOUSE, not the attorney. The odds of collecting off him are slim to none, which is why the lawyers are not interested. Its not just the amount, it's the amount as it relates to the likelihood of a win.
Legal aid groups look to help those in serious risk of jail, not those seeking to go after someone for money.

In Need Of Serious Legal Help!!!!?
My Son Was Suspended From School Today For Being Under The Influence. My Son Claims To Have Only Had Two Shots Of Tequila Yesterday And Had Nothing More. He Got Sick At School And The Teacher Claimed To Have Smelled Alcohol On Him. I Did Not Smell It On Him This Morning. The Police Officer At The School Said He Failed A Pen Test But The School Never Breathalyzed Him. They Suspended Him For 5 Days And 3 Days In Iss. Can I Sue The School For This? He Was Wrongly Punished. What Should I Do?
Are you in need of serious legal help? Yes.
Can you sue the school? No.
What should you do? First, wise up. I've seen this problem first hand. (Trust me on this.) This wasn't the first or second or third time your son was drinking. He's likely an alcoholic. Check your liquor cabinet. Even if the bottles look full, taste them. The booze may have been watered down. Possibly he's not drinking at home, but somewhere else. Or at least has a bottle or two stashed somewhere else.
Question: Has he been missing school lately? Even if he's been leaving for school, check his attendance there. Has he been skipping classes?
Question: Has he been to the doctor lately, maybe more than once, for any health issues? If so, get your son to sign a HIPAA release so that you can talk frankly to the doctor. Today, even if pediatricians or other physicians are told by the patient that they're drinking, the physician won't reveal that to the parent. You need the HIPAA release to get the truth out of the physician.
Look: You can ask your son all this. He's going to lie to you. Oh yes, he will.
And I know you don't want to hear this. You think he's just had a drink or two, and your son's telling you this is the first time. If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.
He's showing up drunk at school. He admits to drinking. The teacher smells booze on him. Your son failed a pen test in the presence of a police officer.
Your son needs medical help. And, yes, consult with a lawyer. Not to sue the school, but to figure out what steps you need to take to keep your son from being expelled.
Again, I know that's not what you want to hear. But it's the truth.
