Were located in Hauppauge, Long Island.
He claims he doesn't need part time work, however one of the supervisors relatives works 2 days a week at a higher rate tan me, reason being he works in a different area.
I was hired part time because I was leaving a 711 night job. I left 711 and started working full time hours, but I then developed an irritated rotator cuff and a thoracic sprain from a job and put in a claim to workers comp. Ive been harassed for this too.
I didn't understand what I had to do, so I had my mother, a Human resources employee at a separate company, call and talk the legalities. Instead she was transferred and hung up on several times and then finally told "you"re aggravating me, we don't want to talk to you." It also took them several days to forward the C2, n when my mother asked them to she was told "no".
I was then called into the office 3 minutes before lunch and told that my mother is harassing his employees and that I'm "causing a huge problem, I don't need people bitching and complaining. We've even had women do those jobs." He's threatened me with termination several times and has supervisors spy on me to make sure I'm working. I've also been told to work harder than everyone and MAYBE I'll make their wage in a year, to which I asked "why am I being held to a higher standard at a lower wage?" A supervisor has even told me my work is no good and to work harder even though I'm injured. I've gone back to part time to relieve myself from physical pain and harassment.
Thanks a lot for the help.
