California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
I feel as if there was favoritism based on sex since the male co worker was best buddies with the two male supervisors above me. my other co worker is a female but once the male co worker started dealing with her..they seemingly came against me.
I feel it was retaliatory because on a prior date...the female co worker and I went to HR to complain about the male co worker. The male co-worker would always claim that the supervisors were his best friends and that they owed him favors. On taht occasion when we met with HR they did not do anything against him.
I was employed on an hourly basis. I had no written contract..just an application taht I signed when i applied.
