Hey All,

Got a ride with a Lyft driver today who was a veteran and just lost a friend. Drive was fine, but am worried about drivers mental health. Left a tip and the VA help line # in the comments.

This is a slippery slope. I know you mean well, but Lyft may take action and cancel his account if they think he’s a liability, seeing as they’d easily replace him with someone else. I honestly don’t know what I would do here

The guy just lost his friend. Don’t make him lose his job.

People deal with death in different ways. Just because someone you know dies doesn’t mean you can’t drive.

Fair enough. Will take hive mind advice and drop it. Thanks!

Would not advise telling Lyft. Let the driver manage that. You did more than enough by providing VA help # and tip.

Am wondering if I should reach out to Lyft to have them get additional help. Or would they be punitive? Advice please.

Don’t contact Lyft. You may get him fired leaving him in worse shape

Don’t - what if he does lose this job, that could be a last straw. Just be empathic and supportive.

D2, probably not the VA one considering the VA is a joke and veterans die waiting to get help (see govt run healthcare)

I also understand that oral drugs such as letrazole are covered under the prescription plan and you only need to enroll and register in the fertility plan if you need IUI and the more rigorous treatments.

Questions:
1. Does the letrazole count towards the 35 lifetime maximum?

Any other advice or insight would be appreciated.

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything. I was looking at both SHRM-CP and SPHR. Everyone that I have spoken to has the SHRM, but that’s also only looking at individuals in a small geographic footprint and within 3-4 different companies. I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks

Hi everyone. Just looking for some advice.

I recently lost my job and my former employer notified me over a call, and the reason was that they’re just too busy to train me. I then applied for EI / unemployment but got told I wouldn’t be getting any money, because my employer said they had to let me go due to shortage of work. I know that’s not true because they hired 2 new people the following week.

What would be the appropriate steps to take in this situation? Thank you for any advice!
