Empowering lives and unlocking human potential through workshops and seminars
Most people do not realize just how many double standards there are in a group disability insurance policy until they are facing a life threatening illness and fighting a company to pay a claim. There was a time when some people had few problems in the first two years of a claim; however, other people have problems after a few weeks. After some people have a claim for about two years, the classifications go from mediocre, to very restrictive. This is when people in the worst possible scenario lose their needed disability benefits. It was less than 10 weeks when they discontinued my paid for and well-earned benefits, this time. In 1982, I was wrongfully terminated about thirteen days after being released from the hospital. I was rehabilatating from unexpected surgery and my doctor had not released me to return to work.
February 2004, the doctor in the emergency room (ER) misdiagnosed me. On the 5th day of my hospital stay, I underwent surgery. A few weeks after surgery, my employer wrongfully discontinued my disability benefits.
Prior to being sick, I requested equal pay for equal work and spoke out about the, discriminating practices in the workplace against others and me. I was and am in the scope of protected activity. I was in a protective class by each law that creates an employee protection when the financial institution, which I worked for over 20 years, retaliated against me and terminated my employment. They knew I was disable, and under the care of my doctor which violated local, state, federal, and possible other laws. There has been dishonesty, breach of trust, interference and trickery to prevent the truth of continued wrongdoings from being exposed. Keep your hands in God hands he will never leave or deceive you. Beware you are not exempted. An employer must provide leave under whichever statutory provision that provides the greater rights to employees. I was qualified for long term and short-term disability leave.
Congress intent for the Summary Judgment process was not to deprive employees of their Constitutional rights to due process. There are Anti-discrimination laws that should protect an employee regardless of their gender or race employees should not be denied legal representation or an equal playing field. "Injustice anywhere is still a threat to justice everywhere." Intentional Negligence is not acceptable in the medical profession and Unethical Values has no place in the legal profession, or the workplace. We need to have ethics restored throughout our medical system as well as our legal system.
Intentional discrimination, failure to promote, harassment, retaliation, ADA violations, Rehabilitation violations and Wrongful termination, etc. are issues of material facts.
The law should presume, since an employee were qualified for his/her job and then discharged in favor of someone not in your protected class, that your protected status was the reason for the diverse action. My employer and the person that makes the actual decision about my job knew that I was engaged in protected conduct at the time they retaliated against me and wrongfully terminated my employment.
Title VI was enacted as part of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin in programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance.
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it unlawful to retaliate against an employee because she testified, assisted or participated in a proceeding protected that law. The ADA is an "equal opportunity" law.
Due Process requires: *employees be given notice of the reason for being discharged; * a hearing be held at which employees are given the opportunity to present evidence in their behalf and to hear the evidence presented against them; and * a decision be made by an impartial third-party decision-maker based on the evidence presented at the hearing.
Alabama Statue defines fraud as the "Misrepresentation of a material fact made willfully to deceive, or recklessly without knowledge, and acted on by the opposite party, or if made by mistake and innocently acted on by the opposite party, constitute legal fraud." All employees deserve equal protection under the law. Attorneys have a duty to zealously advocate and investigate for the client, not help hide material facts.
A hate crime is an act of violence, intolerance or bigotry, intended to hurt or intimidate someone because of her or his real or perceived race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, religion, sexual orientation, or disability.
The Civil Rights section of the constitution was also in response to the Black Codes that Southern states passed in the waken of the Thirteenth Amendment, which ended slavery in the United States. Those laws attempted to return free slaves to something like their former conditions, restricting their movement forcing them to enter into yearlong contracts, prohibiting and preventing them from suing or testifying in court. The Fourteenth amendment added this principle into the constitution to prevent the Supreme Court from ruling the Civil Rights Act to be unconstitutional for lack of Congressional authority to enact such a law and to prevent a future Congress from altering it by a mere majority vote.
For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his soul: Mark 8:36-37
My faith is in the Lord, because of God's grace and mercy I am a survival. "To God be the glory" is my testimony.
