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
Did you quit your job due to this incident?
Yes I did.
In terms of legal action, there is little you can do at this point, unless the employer violated a written contract,
or the reason for the employers inaction was due to your race, gender, age or other protected civil right,
Under the law, an employer is allowed to regulate and enforce policy,
If you have quit due to this, you could attempt a constructive discharge lawsuit,
this is when the employer has created such a toxic work environment,
that you feel you had no option but to leave,
That would be your only legal course of action in this type of matter, unless the employer violated a written contract,
Thank you for your answer you never know unless you ask an expert.
