California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
He told me he hates smokers and that I was disgusting, told me I wasn't allowed to wear my perfume because it reminded him of his ex wife, he threw timesheets that hit me in the back of the head. I would say it's mostly verbal abuse, harrasment, sexist remarks and innuendo.
As far as a contract, when I was hired on i recieved a letter from the company stating I would have 2 weeks vacation, sick pay and go to 40 hours a week after my 90 probation period, which never happened. I am not sure if this is considered a contract.
Yes, he would like me to sign a waiver that will wave all claims. I am only allowed to talk to him via the telephone. No records I suppose. My question is what is a reasonable amount to ask for compensation of my loss.
