PSA: background checks for Amazon are taking in excess of 5 weeks. My friend accepted a position with Amazon 5 weeks ago and gave her 2 week notice right away. She’s now on 3 weeks without pay.

Is it possible to switch to one of these roles coming from a cyber strategy background if I learn the scanning tools, linux, networking, etc in my own time?

Since George Floyd's murder and the sudden Corporate America "wokeness," I (black guy) have been routinely contacted by unacquainted Partners who explicitly state something to the effect "Client X wants diversity, so we'd like you on this deal..." It really comes across as tone deaf and completely patronizing. I appreciate the efforts to diversity (albeit forced), but Partners really need to learn how to not be so supercilious in the approach. You don't have to overtly state that I'm the quota.

Been on FMLA / short term disability for 3 months and doctor recommended 1.5 months extension. My firm refused the extended leave but we’re unable to provide reasons what the under hardship for the firm is. They are pressing me hard for alternative ada accommodation (anything but continuous leave) so I can get back to work. If not they will terminate me next day. Is it legal?
