if I have a developmental disorder, a learning disability with characteristics of autism. And I was harassed severely by management. I spoke to upper management about it, who was aware and at times participated in this harassment. I was written up and sent when the management said they would not stop making fun of me. I was wrongfully terminated a couple of weeks later that I would argue is retaliation
. I filed a complaint with human resources who contacted the owner of this business. Since this company is a Franchise. I told him everything and threatened to take legal action by going to department of labor
and the EEOC
. I was offered my job back. But upon returning to work my hours were serverily limited. Each time I asked for more hours my hours was cut even more. I finally asked if this was because of my wrongful termination
. My manager then told me that they do not have to give me any hours. I was able to get a few extra shifts by works calling out, and my manager threatened to change the store policy to where nobody could call out except for extreme medical emergencies so that I could not get extra shifts. They also threatened to cut my hours even more. And told me to go get another job. I then went to the owner again and he agreed to give me full time hours but zero reimbursement. The very next day the general manager who had been denying me hours along. Makes up brand new rules, that I was never notified about or the penalty for breaking them. But tells me of these new rules and that i am breaking them and takes two days off the schedule. I wait a couple of days and text my boss asking what these new rules are to clarify as to why im loosing hours. And she puts the answer in the text message. I then quit. And I currently have an attorney. But I am very unsatisfied with my attorney for numerous reasons. Not trying to bad mouth them. But I sent him extremely detailed email or serries of emails with dates of when things happened extc. And he messed up my EEOC charge form twice. The first time he emailed it to me to sign and fax back. And the dates on it were wrong. One of which I never sent him. And also he put some stuff there that was just not accurate. I notified him of these mistakes the first time and he said he would correct it. He corrected some mistakes, but again has the dates wrong. And also puts stuff in there that is just not accurate. Here is my question, or first question. Could that get my case thrown out and or cause me to loose? If my EEOC charge form is not correct? i would think it would. Especially since, I filed a complaint a week or so before I officially quit and sought after an attorney. my attorney has my EEOC charge that I field late in February. Also my attorney says that it would be incredibly difficult to get emotional damages for my managers making fun of for my disability. Ive read online and it has been published and is a medical fact that people with my disability, especially because it causes social awkwardness, suffer from depression. I was made fun of management at my job, I told them to stop repeatedly to stop and they would not and then broke the law to fire me. And go back and my hours were cut. This caused me tremendous depression. It sucked the joy out of my life. I even went to counselors years before this speaking about depression. I even started seeing a chiropractor for minor back problems before I officially quit working for this company. I was scheduled for a certain number of visits to correct my problem. By the time my visits was up, my problem had not gotten better. And he even said it because of stress from this work situation. I have not gotten better and my chiropractor says it because of all this stress. And my current attorny who I think sucks, tells me that he thinks it would be to hard to get any kind of emotional damages. All he wants to ask for is lost wages
. and after he takes his 40% of my settlement. I am left with almost nothing. Not to mention that I made around 30 thousand dollars a year and he doesnt want to ask for hardly future wages and the job I have now if I were to stay id be making around 15 thousand a year. So honestly I want to switch attorneys. But please tell me with this situation can I or should i be getting at least some king of payment for emotional damages? And I know by law I can switch attorneys, but what should I do about switching attorneys? anybody want this case or at least want the details?
