Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification
This is an unfortunate situation, do you feel you disability or gender may be the reason as well for the employers treatment?
no, I do not. This is a large company so I do believe that they are sticking as close to the legal line as possible.
If you do not feel discrimination is a reason, your legal options are limited, since you have a Union representing your interests, that is good, however, you may want to retain a private attorney to send a letter to the employer threatening legal action,
The attorney can threaten a defamation case, or a discrimination case, and that may force the employer to stop there negative actions,
Unfortunately, I have to leave work now so I am not "stealing" time. Is there a way for you to answer my question by email ?
yes, I will send an email,
I just viewed both my area personnel file and also my HR personnel file and did not find any negative or derogatory remarks or reports in either one. The company claims that I had been "coached" concerning "repeated workplace distractions, disruptions, drama, safety issues, and additional safety-related expenditures as a result of her ongoing conduct and marital discord." yet, there is no proof of either my being negligent in my job performance or attendance record. Basically, my job record and history is squeaky clean. The company has no proof of either my "bad behavior" or their "coaching or discipline". Do I have any legal stance concerning that?
