Hospital Fired Employee Due to Rare Brain Condition and Surgery Employee Charges in Federal Lawsuit

Adverse employment actions based on disability and the failure to make reasonable accommodations to an employee's disability are unlawful employment actions under the Americans with Disabilities Act.”

— Steven L. Murray

DENVER, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Children's Hospital of Colorado intentionally and unlawfully discriminated against Kristie Richardson, a Mental Health Counselor with over nine years of outstanding performance, because of her disability and brain surgery for Chiari I Malformation, a rare congenital condition involving the brain’s cerebellum, charged Richardson in a lawsuit filed in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado.

According to Richardson’s lawsuit, she had brain surgery on July 31, 2017, and her physician ordered her to take 12-weeks leave from the date of surgery to recover. The Hospital denied Richardson’s medically supported, reasonable requests for any leave beyond October 13, 2017, including her request for leave until October 23. While Richardson was on leave, the Hospital threatened her that it would fire her and require her to repay insurance premiums if she did not return to work before the end of October 2017. Children’s Hospital fired Richardson on October 13, 2017, leaving her without any insurance coverage. Ms. Richardson’s husband is disabled, she is the mother of four children, and the primary financial provider for her family.

While Richardson was on leave, she had been promoted to Senior Mental Health Counselor. The Hospital cancelled this promotion when she was fired. Kristie Richardson, after her firing, complained to the Hospital about the way it treated her knowing of her disability and her recent brain surgery. Six days after Richardson’s firing, the Hospital posted her prior position as an open position for hire. Richardson applied for her prior position because she was eligible for rehire and her physician cleared her to return to work with no restrictions as of October 24, 2017. Children’s Hospital neither interviewed nor hired Richardson for her prior position.

Kristie Richardson’s lawsuit alleges she was discriminated against because of her disability, denied reasonable workplace accommodations, threatened, and retaliated against for making protected complaints, all actions in violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Attorney Steven L. Murray commented, "Adverse employment actions based on disability and the failure to make reasonable accommodations to an employee's disability are unlawful employment actions under the Americans with Disabilities Act."

Kristie Richardson filed the lawsuit in U.S. District Court for the District of Colorado [Richardson v. Children’s Hospital Colorado, Civil Action No. 1:21-cv-01739-KLM]. Richardson’s lawsuit seeks damages for emotional suffering, back pay and related financial losses, punitive damages, reinstatement or in the alternative, front pay, plus attorneys’ fees and costs.

Denver employment lawyers Steven L. Murray of Murray Law LLC, and Thomas H. Mitchiner of Mitchiner Law, LLC, represent Kristie Richardson.

Legal Medical Consulting Releases Article Series on Expert Witnesses

Dallas-based company Legal Medical Consulting has just released a new article series on expert witnesses. For more information, visit https://bit.ly/2SxCMXt.

DALLAS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Legal Medical Consulting is a medical legal consultancy in Dallas TX with 34 years of knowledge and experience working with more than 133 hospitals, 265 ambulatory surgery centers and 23 publications. It has recently launched a series of blog posts and articles revolving around the topic of medical expert witnesses. They have given the explanation, need, and importance of such people in various medical malpractice cases.

The writeups explain in detail what expert witnesses are, which are mostly doctors, surgeons, physicians, nurses or other licensed medical professionals who have the qualifications and experience to testify in court of law on a specific medical case. Medical expert witnesses get hired for a variety of reasons. A medical witness gets called when a jury needs to understand technical or scientific data relevant to the case. Attorneys and lawyers frequently use them for medical negligence and injury claims. The findings of a medical expert witness can assist lawyers in understanding and assessing the case validity before taking legal action. As the case moves forward to discovery and trial, expert opinion and testimony are critical.

But what is an expert testimony? It is proof founded on sufficient facts, evidence, or data gathered using credible strategies and procedures. If the expert's technical, scientific, or other specialized knowledge aids the trier of fact in determining truth or evidence in the case, the witness can testify in the type of a viewpoint. Professionals can testify when their specialized knowledge supports the judge or jury, according to Rule 702 of the Federal Rules of Evidence.

Furthermore, a medical expert witness should translate technical and scientific terms into layperson's terms, allowing the court to comprehend the events of the case. To qualify for "expert status," a medical expert witness must state his or her opinions with reasonable healthcare certainty. A witness is someone who assists the judge and jury in reaching a fair decision in the case. The analyst explains the victim's injury, the source of his or her suffering and pain, and other issues. The expert's testimony contains all of the necessary information. Besides that, they get hired to link indications to the defendant. In such a case, they use scientific methods or procedures to ascertain or prove the defendant's liability for the damage caused.

Legal Medical Consulting has qualified, licensed, and skilled medical expert witnesses who can explain medical procedures and testify in court about what occurred that resulted in damages. These highly professional individuals have launched this series of articles on Medical Witnesses based on their knowledge and expertise.

Dr. Rusty McNew is the Managing Partner of the company. He possesses exceptional clinical and executive-level experience and knowledge in the healthcare field, collaborating with legal departments on medical negligence diagnosis, therapy, obstetrics, treatment, and supervising cases. Dr. McNew has written twenty books on medical malpractice prevention and clinical guidelines. Physicians, healthcare executives, attorneys, and health insurers have all used these strategies to great success. The professional assures that the company provides all forms of legal support backed by scientific claims. He says, “We recognize, synthesize, incorporate, analyze, and communicate pertinent health records and healthcare operations on your case using our knowledge and expertise.”

Difference Between an AVO and an ADVO

AVO

Apprehended Violence Order AVO Infographic

Apprehended Violence Order AVO Infographic

Apprehended Violence Order AVO Infographic

This article sheds some light on the differences between an AVO and ADVO as well as give some insight on what you can do if someone is threatening your safety.

SYDNEY, NSW, AUSTRALIA, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Australia has high domestic violence rates, with OurWatch.org reporting that approximately 34.2% of Australian women saying they had experienced domestic violence since the age of 15. Rates of violence are 2-5 times higher in Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander families according to the Better Health Channel in Victoria.

Hopefully this article can shed some light on the differences between an AVO and an ADVO as well as give some insight on what you can do if someone is threatening your safety.

When you’re in an intimate relationship with someone who is threatening your safety you may feel as if you can’t do anything, but you can.

You can report the incident to the police and take out a Court Order commonly referred to as an AVO. You do not have to have been physically harmed for the Court to consider your request for an AVO. If you feel as though you are in danger then the Court may still agree to make the Order if they have reasonable reason to believe that you are in danger.

This article will discuss the different types of AVOs and how you can get one made if you are worried about your safety. It will also talk about the impact of an AVO and how long they last for.

What is an AVO (Apprehended Violence Order)?

An Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) is made by a Court, generally the Local Court when you have experienced violence and are concerned about your safety and want protection from further threats or violence.

After the Court has made an AVO, the person who you’ve taken the AVO out against isn’t allowed to stalk, harass or intimidate you. There may be other conditions attached to the AVO such as not drinking alcohol or carrying weapons depending on the conditions in which it was taken out.

If someone is trying to take an AVO (Apprehended Violence Order out against you then you need to know that it’s not a criminal offence so it won’t appear on your criminal record. You also should keep in mind that AVOs generally last for 12 months and you will be subject to certain conditions for the lifetime of the AVO. Breaching the conditions may result in a Court appearance and being convicted of a criminal offence.

What is an ADVO (Apprehended Domestic Violence Order)?

When the Court makes an ADVO you cannot contact the person who took out the ADVO. This type of Order can be made when you are in an intimate or domestic relationship with someone.

If you’re Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander then an ADVO can be made against your kin or extended family for example your cousin, aunt, uncle, grandfather, grandmother, grandson or granddaughter.

An AVO or an ADVO will be issued when the Court decides that you (the applicant) has reasonable grounds to fear for your safety or is in danger of experiencing further violence and it is in your best interests for an AVO to be issued.

What is an APVO (Apprehended Personal Violence Order)?

An APVO (Apprehended Personal Violence Order) is an Order made by a Court that prevents an a certain person having any type of contact with you.

How Does an Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) Work?

An AVO offers AVO legal protection to you if you are worried for your safety either because you have previously been physically assaulted, or because you have been threatened.

When the Local Court has made the AVO you must not make contact with the person who took out the AVO against you unless it is through your lawyer.

All police AVOs come with standard conditions that you aren’t allowed to assault or threaten the person, you can’t stalk, intimidate or harass them and you must not destroy any of their personal belongings.

In some cases the AVO will come with other conditions.

An AVO is enforceable as soon as the Court has made the Apprehended Violence Order (AVO) or Apprehended Domestic Violence Order (ADVO).

If you breach your AVO then you will need to get legal advice because criminal charges could be laid against you which could restrict your ability to get certain jobs.

If you had an AVO taken out against someone and they have since threatened you then you need to report the incident to the police as soon as you can so that criminal charges can be laid and to ensure your safety.

If you’re reading all this and worried for your safety then the first step to ensuring your safety is to apply to report the incident to your local Police Station who can apply for an AVO on your behalf. You can also apply for an AVO yourself.

How Do I Apply For An AVO or ADVO?

If you would like to make an application for an AVO there are certain processes that must be followed before the Court can make an AVO or ADVO.

You should report any incidents against family members or another individual to the police. The police will take a statement from you and consider all the circumstances. You will need to give them detailed information so they can assess the application. Additional information will need to be supplied if you are applying for an ADVO. Details of the required information can be found on the Law Access NSW website.

When you have given the police all the information that they need to assess your application for an AVO you will need to sign the statement. Before you sign the statement, check that all the information that you’ve given is correct and true because if it is not then you could be charged with a criminal offence of giving false or misleading information.

An experienced speaker, certified on the Baker Act, Diane Stein is sought after on topics ranging from involuntary psychiatric examination to mental health rights.

Recent changes to the Florida laws governing involuntary psychiatric examination and parental rights will be covered at this complimentary virtual event.

Recent proposed changes to the laws in Florida concerning the use of the Baker Act with children will afford much needed greater protection of parental rights.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida (CCHR) is hosting a virtual continuing legal education course for private practice attorneys on July 23rd from 1:00pm until 5:00pm. The complimentary event is open to attorneys licensed to practice in Florida and those wishing to attend may reserve a spot by calling CCHR at 800-782-2878.

This conference is the seventh such event hosted by CCHR, a non-profit watchdog organization dedicated to restoring dignity and human rights to the field of mental health. CCHR began hosting these events as part of a campaign to protect individuals from human rights violations committed through the abusive use of the Florida mental health law, commonly called the Baker Act.

Key topics at the conference include strategies to effectively serve families and to eradicate violations of the law, changes to the law, successful actions for defending the rights of citizens being held under a Baker Act as well as key points of the Parents’ Bill of Rights.

The event will be led by attorney Justin Drach of Theole Drach Law. A successful attorney practicing in Jacksonville, Mr. Drach was the 2017 recipient of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights Humanitarian Award for his tireless fight to end mental health abuse in Florida. Also speaking will be attorney Kendra Parris from Orlando and the president for the Florida chapter of CCHR, Diane Stein.

While the original stated intention of the Baker Act was to protect the rights of citizens sent for involuntary psychiatric examination, it has become a source of abuse, prompting CCHR Florida to not only host this event but to launch a public information campaign to educate Floridians on their rights under this law. As part of this campaign, CCHR hosts a seminar regularly delivered online for the general public by attorney Carmen Miller who, as a former Assistant Public Defender in the Thirteenth Circuit in Tampa, has a great deal of experience on the mental health law. Now in the private sector, Ms. Miller specializes in cases of those who have been Baker Acted.

To learn more about the Baker Act or to reserve a spot at the next complimentary virtual seminar please email execdir@cchrflorida.org.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969.

Federal Air Marshal Director Michael Ondocin accused of Union Busting and Unfair Labor Practice

Federal Air Marshal Director Michael Ondocin accused of Union Busting and Unfair Labor Practice

As the twenty year anniversary approaches of 9/11, the Federal Air Marshal Service remains leaderless and plagued with incompetence. It is time for change. Our national security depends on it.”

— Flying Federal Air Marshal

WASHINGTON , DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA , USA , June 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, the Air Marshal National Council filed an official complaint with DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Congressional Oversight Committees against Federal Air Marshal Service Director Michael Ondocin for Union Busting and Unfair Labor Practices. The Air Marshal National Council (AMNC ) is a union with a mission of helping Federal Air Marshals. AMNC champions causes that elevate National Security and expose government fraud, waste, and abuse. The union advocates for laws to stop the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) from abusing Federal Air Marshals and compromising aviation security. To prevent this abuse , AMNC promotes enacting legislation, and works to enforce internal policies that govern TSA.

Recently, the Air Marshal's top brass Director Michael Ondocin disseminated a nationwide email in opposition to the union for their colloboration with media outlets to include Judicial Watch (JW) in exposing a scandalous VIP Program featured in the Corruption Chronicles. The JW story reads in part:

"A scandal-plagued “VIP” program that provided members of Congress with Federal Air Marshals (FAM) often yanked from high-risk fights has been canceled after Judicial Watch exposed it earlier this month. As a result, hundreds of FAM are sitting idly at airports around the U.S. because the “VIP missions have stopped,” according to a federal law enforcement source with firsthand knowledge of the situation. A veteran air marshal who asked not to be identified said “the Washington Field Office in Washington D.C. was almost exclusively dedicated to VIP services for Congress.” Another longtime FAM told Judicial Watch he was deployed on several VIP missions with low-profile members of Congress. He said so many FAM were on standby for the VIP congressional program that now he and many of his colleagues are “sitting around the airport waiting for a mission.”

The union responded to the email and clearly showed Ondocin's attempt to union bust. The union will vigorously defend AMNC against any/all slanderous or liable actions generated by the agency and/or agency officials.

AMNC complaint reads:
"Ondocin's email was an unprecedented and unprofessional attack on the union. A union that has worked diligently to report continued fraud, waste, and abuse within the agency. It is clear to us that this is evidence of a Director of a Federal Agency having a very public and immature tantrum in a desperate attempt to try to save his beleaguered legacy. Mr. Ondocin is clearly undertaking tactics to union bust, to disrupt and prevent the expansion of the Air Marshal National Council (AMNC) and our efforts to grow membership in a workplace. Unfair labor practices are clearly defined in 5 U.S. Code 7116."

A leaders job is to unite the workforce, not to create a further divide in an already divided one. Mr. Ondocin’s attempt to disparage the AMNC in his official capacity as Director of the FAMS has led many of our members to question his ability to safely and effectively perform the essential function of his duties. Mr. Ondocin continues to exhibit a pattern of dishonesty, a willingness to violate agency policy and the requirements necessary to maintain a Top Secret Clearance.

The fact that the FAMS is the only federal agency with three (3) separate unions fighting for change tells you all you need to know about the complete lack of leadership we have been suffering under.

If that isn’t enough the sheer number and seriousness of the internal investigations and scandals that have and are occurring under Mr. Ondocin’s watch should be.

We want to assure you, that Mr. Ondocin has our and our partners full attention now. We will be louder than ever before in exposing every ounce of corruption and incompetence coming from his administration. If and when you see fit to relieve him of his post we will look forward to extending an olive branch to open communication with the next Director. "

Jason Weiss Appointed to the Board of Directors for the Bucks County Bar Association

Personal Injury Attorneys

We are proud of the immense honor for our partner Jason Weiss to be appointed and serve on one of the oldest and most active Bar Associations in the U.S.

I can't say enough good things about Jason Weiss, but being appointed on the Board of Directors for the Bucks County Bar Association has to be one of the greatest milestones for him and our firm.”

— James C. Haggerty, Esq.

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, June 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer, & Kupersmith, P.C. is proud to announce that partner Jason R. Weiss, Esq. has been appointed to the Board of Directors for the Bucks County Bar Association. While serving on any Bar Association is an important milestone in one’s career, this one is particularly important for two reasons.

First, the Bucks County Bar Association (BCBA) is one of the oldest and most active Bar Associations in the United States. It is located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, and started in 1853 when 17 local bar members met and formed the association. Bucks County itself is historic, as the first courts in Bucks County were established by William Penn as early as 1683. The BCBA is dedicated to providing its members and all individuals or organizations connected with the legal industry the support and fellowship necessary for the advancement of the legal profession.

Second, Mr. Weiss has been selected and appointed to serve on the Board of Directors. This is an incredibly unique and rare opportunity for any individual to have as associations—particularly like the BCBA—do not just hand out positions to a board. This unique position allows Mr. Weiss to have a more significant role in supporting both the Bar Association and other members of the public, legal profession, and judiciary in Bucks County and Greater Pennsylvania.

While we are very proud of Mr. Weiss’ selection, it comes as no surprise to us. As partner at HGSK handling personal injury matters, Mr. Weiss is one of the hardest-working lawyers in Pennsylvania who truly dedicates himself to each client and their families. He regularly sits as an arbitrator for the Bucks County Court of Common Pleas. He also presents various Continuing Legal Education (CLE) courses, which are instructional classes for other lawyers to learn, sharpen their ability, or learn new skills. Mr. Weiss has been recognized as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers (R) and is editor of a publication for the BCBA.

If you or a loved one were seriously injured in a personal injury accident occurring in Pennsylvania, learn how our experienced lawyers at Haggerty, Goldberg, Schleifer & Kupersmith, P.C. can help you protect your rights during a FREE consultation by dialing (267) 350-6600.

Attorney Edmund C. Celiesius (Ed) joins the firm as a passionate litigator and has dedicated his career to labor and employment law. Mr. Celiesius has experience representing both employees and employers and craftily knows the tactics and pressure points of successful litigation. During his career, he has litigated cases arising under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disability Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act. Mr. Celiesius has extensive experience handling class and collective actions under the Fair Labor Standards Act. Prior to joining the firm, Mr. Celiesius attended Widener University Delaware Law School where he earned his Juris Doctorate and Temple University where he earned his Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy.

Mr. Celiesius joins Brown, LLC’s Wage and Hour Department which focuses on complex litigation by representing workers who were shorted wages, overtime pay, ERISA issues, and addressing many other labor and employment issues typically on a class or collective basis. The firm litigates under statutes like the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), and various other state wage and hour laws that call for at least double damages and attorney’s fees if successful. Brown, LLC has recovered tens of millions of dollars on behalf of workers over the years, although past success does not guarantee future results.

Brown LLC is also a well-regarded Whistleblower Law Firm, representing scores of individuals under the False Claims Act who report Medicare Fraud, Medicaid Fraud, PPP Fraud and other types of fraud against the government. Other whistleblower matters include SEC whistleblower, IRS whistleblower matters and the recently revised Anti-Money Laundering Whistleblower statute. The firm also handles other high-end litigation such as mass torts (Zantac-Cancer) litigation, (Talcum-Ovarian Cancer litigation), commercial litigation and big dollar single event cases.

The firm is extremely busy, so Mr. Celiesius is a welcome addition. Despite its very active caseload, the firm still offers free, confidential consultations on most matters and most matters are handled on a contingency basis, meaning the firm is only paid if it wins your case. You can take advantage of a free, confidential consultation for your rights as a whistleblower or overtime rights or many other legal matters by calling the firm at (877) 561-0000 or visiting the site at www.IFightForYourRights.com.
