My husband experienced discrimination
at his previous employment that was so bad he had to resign. He is Caucasian and I, his wife, am African American. The employees including the asst. manager and manager were all making daily remarks about ni**ers and racial remarks. my husband and one other employee were the only ones who were offended and even informed them that he had a black wife. but they did not stop. when he resigned the other employee informed us of threats they were making to us. we had the employee who was still there to record what they were saying. we decided to pursue legal action and obtained an attorney.
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: yes. we had an attorney for both my husband and the employee who made the recordings because they also threatened him and was calling him names like ni**er lover, etc. however, recently he became very afraid and stop responding to us and our attorney so our attorney decided to terminate himself as our attorney.
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: Our attorney had filed some documents for us, but now since he has terminated himself from our case. we are left high and dry and do not have the endless funds to keep this case going like the company my husband worked for.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: we consulted an attorney who advised us to ask for the settlement agreement hearing to be moved forward and not to turn over the audio recordings. however the attorney for the plantiff stated that we had to give her the recordings. there were no depositions that had been taken as of yet and we do not want to give her the recordings before that was done because they prove that there was racism going on there for sure and by all parties who were accused.
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.
