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.

Can An Ordinary Citizen Present A Case To The Highest District Attorney Office?
Is This Office That Of The Attorney General At The U.S. Department Of Justice?
I'm Trying To Solve A Problem Which Involves Two Local Non-Profit Organizations, One Which Is A Branch Of A National One. It Also Involves One State Agency And Social Security Which Of Course It's An Agency Of The Federal Government.
I Believe This Case I'm Trying To Build Should Be Brought To The Highest Attorney Office, For I Know It Would Be A Complete Waste Of Time Trying To Bring It To Congress Attention.
Any Suggestions And Answers Are Welcome!
A District attorney is usually an elected position held by a lawyer. This person is responsible for Criminal cases prosecuted in their district. In large districts there are Assistant District Attorneys who actually go to the court and prosecute the cases and their boss, the DA oversees and is responsible for their actions. For a case to be presented to them, a law must have been broken (and investigate by the police usually as well).
The attorney general is the top legal adviser of a state and is usually appointed. They will rarely oversee individual cases but their office often has authority over lawyers in the state. They would be concerned about legal problems or legal interest of the state itself.
Now in regards to your problem. I would have to know what crime was committed. Different agencies oversee different things. Non-profits are more often then not concerned with the IRS. If they do not act as non-profits then they might lose their tax free status. If a law was broken the DA will become involved if charges are filed. The DA is publicly elected so yes you can speak to them though their schedule may not be easy to accommodate but they really have no involvement unless a crime is committed. The State Attorney general will have little involvement unless legal professionals violated ethics or law or the state is affected in some way.
Also the Social Security administration oversees social security.
Can Someone With An Expunged Felony Become A Lawyer In Ca?
California does not have any true "expungement" of records. There is a post-conviction dismissal under Pen C 1203.4 for those who successfully complete probation, and there is a Certificate of Rehabilitation for those who are law abiding following release from prison.
However, that said, a felony conviction does not necessarily disqualify a person from admission to the California State Bar. Many people with such convictions--and exemplary lives thereafter--have been admitted. Of course, offenses involving theft or fraud will be looked at more harshly than, say, drug or alcohol offenses.
I Know To Fund Law School Will Be Costly Are There Any Loan Forgiveness Programs For Lawyers?
Teachers Can Have Loans Paid Back If They Work In A Critical Area Do Attorneys Have Anything Like This?
LRAPs were set up by law schools (and are now also offered by some federal and state agencies) to defray or, in some instances, fully cover the education debt payments of their graduates who become government or public interest lawyers. Some 80 or so law schools (see list below) offer some kind of LRAP.
Generally speaking, full-time work (with some programs, part-time work may also qualify) as a public defender/prosecutor or in other government agencies/advocacy groups or in a public interest law firm will qualify you for an LRAP. Note that judicial clerkships are generally not considered eligible employment. Eligibility is also generally limited to those making under a certain annual income threshold, usually $35,000 - $50,000.
If you qualify, you will receive forgivable loans (contingent upon eligible employment for a specified period of time), grants or other financial assistance toward a percentage, or even all, of your student loan payments in a given year. Some schools may expect at least some contribution toward annual loan payments from each applicant.
Please note that LRAPs can vary significantly from school to school and they certainly have their limits. Most are severely underfunded, so not all qualified candidates may receive assistance in any given year. Generally, LRAPs give preference to the applicants with the highest debt-to-income ratios. Also, with many programs, once you earn even a dollar over the maximum income threshold you will become ineligible for continued assistance under the program.

My Baby Does Not Have His Father'S Last Name, He Has Mine, Who Has More Rights?
Visitation, custody, and child support are three different legal orders that must be made by the Family court judge. If his name is not on the birth certificate, you must prove he is the bio dad to garner a child support order. Time is very important. If you wait too long, you will lose. DNA tests must be ordered by the court.
