California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Is there anyway to request you to answer my questions or is it simply the luck of the draw?
I was directing my question to you, LegalPro54. I look forward to your answer.
I absolutely appreciate your frankness. Thank you. Having said that, there are a number of mitigating circumstances that may help my case:
It is my further understanding that the individual mentioned above had complained about another employee using racial slurs, having been rude and generally hostile towards him. Again, this is hearsay. I can tell you that the manager came to me and asked about the individual who had been accused of the above mentioned behavior, asking if I had ever heard this individual speak inappropriately or if I had experienced any hostility from him. She implied at the time that they were looking into a possible “hostile work” environment having been created by this individual.
Thank you for all your assistance. However, as I have not been terminated, I just wanted to ensure that the above answer was for me and not another individual. I am sure that you are answering more than one inquiry at a time.
You can imagine how difficult this is for a man in his 60's to have to deal with, especially in this economy. Throughout my life, I did everything I thought was right. Went to college, received a Masters Degree, raised a family, was in business all to end up fighting for some silly position with a dysfunctional organization. I even thought of becoming a lawyer! Life and all its vagaries.
Thank you again. You have been very helpful.
