Saving a Professional License
LINC recently had a client, Sylvia*, who was in desperate need of assistance with a work related issue. She had been diagnosed with cancer, and despite going through the physical and emotional challenges of chemotherapy she continued to work. One week Sylvia found herself facing a very rigorous schedule in which she had to work more hours and shifts than usual. She was exhausted from her treatment and related health challenges and found herself facing some serious allegations and workplace challenges. She lost her job and had no options for alternate employment because her professional license was in jeopardy. Sylvia’s son, Harold*, got in touch with LINC and relayed his mother’s challenges. Client Services Attorney, Cris Gantz, was able assess the facts, identify the client’s needs, and find a volunteer attorney to work with Sylvia to get her license reinstated. Now Sylvia can work in her profession again. She can provide for herself and more fully respond to the financial challenges that come with a cancer diagnosis.
