I have been with my company for four years. I used to get written up overtime I missed work
and for not meeting performance goals as a jeweler even though I was also performing the jobs of clerical and polisher. When I took the job I was told I would be put in the management training program - still has not happened. I was told I had to be with the company for a year,then had to be a jeweler, then that I had to make my billing goals. A girl I work with was recently promoted to jeweler and immediately put into the program.
JA: Got it. The Employment Lawyer will know how to help you. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?
Customer: Recently things have gotten bad and I think I may have a hostile
work environment claim - I have not consulted anyone yet. I now have co-workers who are blatantly ignoring me - don't respond to a greeting, don't respond to a question that is not specifically work related. I believe they are possibly spreading gossip/lies about me also. The "silent treatment" is causing me a great deal of anxiety and I can no longer perform effectively as I am constantly fighting back tears. I am bi-polar and this is triggering a depression. There is constant whispering, everybody else jokes around but if I try to join a conversation I get crickets. I have to leave by 5:50 on some days to pick up a child - I am a single mother - and co-workers get upset if I have jobs that have to get handed off so they can be QC'd and shipped. It seems someone is always upset with me and often now I feel like they are all annoyed that I am there at all
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Employment Lawyer should know?
Customer: i am trying to document things - last week some gold went missing from my box and mysteriously appeared under my bench a few days later, I am being given work that makes it impossible for me to bill out much. I just don't know if I can prove anything
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Employment Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
