I was making 55-60 k per year at my old job..The bad thing is they haven't talked any numbers yet.. What to do ?? What to do ??

Take the settlement. Do not go back to work for an employer that you sued. We have a good friend of our family that went back to work for the employer he sued through a class action lawsuit and won. He was the only one who took his job back instead of the cash settlement. Long story short, the employer made his time at work miserable for the next several years until he reached retirement age…they literally stuck him in a cubical, gave him no work, monitored him the entire day…no personal calls, no sleeping, no reading, no surfing the internet, no games on the computer, no interaction with other employees…if he was 1 minute late for work or returning from a break he got written up…any infraction resulted in his pay getting docked…he had to be at his desk at all times unless he was on a scheduled break or needed to use the restroom…he had to be at his desk so that his employer could find him in case they needed him…they never needed him.
