California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Do you feel I have grounds for a harsement case? Oh it wasn't my boss, it was my boss's daughter who lied in the meeting and said she was friends with my daughter on FB. My daughter's FB is private, only shared pic are public.
The last 3 yrs, my mother past away, which I took pfl, for 6 weeks. Shortly after this I injured my knee first at work, then several weeks later, took a bad fall and tore my MCL and ACL, which required 2 different surgeries, again time off work. Then this time last yr my husband had heart surgery. The last 3 yrs have been a nightmare. In all of these case, I provided proper medical documentation, to my employer. I even told them, if they need to replace me I understood, there response was come back when your ready, and I was welcomed. I don't know why yesterday, I was ridiculed, called a lair, and made to feel worthless. I was told my co-workers think I'm a lair. I was so upset today, I left work in tears. My HR mgr is looking into this, as I have filed a formal compliant. Where do I go from here, if anywhere?
Stress level, does sitting there physically shaking cause I was so upset, crying in the meeting I had with my HR mgr, and a co worker who I trust as a witness, count? I had to leave work as I was so upset. Right now don't know if I will be fired or not. I have started smoking again, after not smoking for 3 1/2 weeks. I do feel my boss has caused me more stress, then I can handle right now, and I do not need this added pressure, while my daughter is in the hospital. I'm maxed out, on the stress level. Where do I go from here? Do you have a workers comp attorney?
and or can you suggestion one. Should I contact the EDD?
