Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
I met with Corporate VP of HR on Tuesday it was not offered. When I spoke to my supervisor at a meeting yesterday I asked her about what could be done but all she said was she knew that I was able to apply for FMLA, thats great but all FMLA does is protect your employment status. She directed me to speak to our facilities HR person but I have been told to speak to no-one about this so how can I speak to her. This company just pushes thing under the rug as it is.
Have been concerned with trying to get this person off the street and away from me. He has a history of accusations of violence against women. Am planning on going to hospital in the morning at the advise of Rape Crisis center. I never thought to go to doctor or hospital because he didnt get it in me, and I feel like everyone has minimized this because he didn't "actually" rape me. The on staff nurses at our facility had me come in and fill out a report but they didn't offer to check me or suggest that I go to the hospital. I've never been through this so I am having to try to figure it out on my own.
Would this be a TORTS case? I guess I'm wondering if is this something that Lawyers do with out a retainer being needed because they get compensated in the end.
