I think we just want to know what here legal options are.
She’s been with the company 12 years without incident, being accused of being dishonest without being told what she being dishonest about or given an opportunity to respond. Being threatened to meet with two male supervisors to address her allegation (she was never given an opportunity to address her allegations), being immediately placed on final and told “will be grounds for termination”, being called a liar, then being transferred without compensation etc..
Does she have grounds for harassment?
Can they make her take this new area after all this and not compensate her?
Your thoughts please, what would you recommend a potential client?
No case can be made that she was previously told not to worry as they felt it was a disgrunted employee but only after she raised a concern about her ares manager (personal friend of her supervisor) was she then placed on counseling? Wouldn't this be retaliation? Would he be doing the same actions he is accusing her of?
I guess I'm lost becasue one of her managers recentl talk with attorney to file harassement charges against this same Area Manager (friend of the Regional Manager) and she was told she had a case. It was nothing more than her being picked on and talked about to other managers- No race, sex, etc.
