Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
I am genuinely sorry to hear that you are in this situation. Then answer I would need to provide you with is likely not favorable, so I ask that you do not blame the proverbial messenger. Ultimately if you were on private property, you can be told to leave and can be threatened with an arrest if you remained on the premises. Since you worked for a company who had a license and permission to clean inside the premises, once you were terminated (regardless on whether it was right or not), your right to the premises was likewise removed. The managers or owners could then follow you to make sure you left, and as the end client did not make an effort to speak with you, once you were terminated your right to speak with them at least at that location is likewise terminated. Please remember that you work for the company and not the client, so the company made the decision, and speaking with the client could have been taken as harassment instead. But his threat to you is not against the law, which is likely what you may have heard from other legal professionals at this point.
Ok. Thank you very much, for your legal help. I appreciate it, and will chalk this up as a learning experience.
Glad to help, truly. Sorry that your termination ended up being even more stressful than it had to have been. Good luck to you!
