I am a store manager at a large retail chain, I recently

I am a store manager at a large retail chain, I recently received an hr complaint from my assistant claiming I made racist statements and they were found to not be factual. I have since been forced to continue to work along side him and recently he filed an additional complaint stating that he is being retaliated against. Which also is not factual. The employee states he does not want to be transferred and now I am being forced to continue to work with someone I don't trust and cannot form a healthy work relationship with. Now today there was an anonymous complaint that I was being mean to a different employee. I feel like my assistant is attempting to coerce other employees to turn against me and I do not feel like my rights as an employee are being protected. I don't know what to do!

To get away from 3 years of abuse on the job by my ex

To get away from 3 years of abuse on the job by my ex husband I worked with and was under contract to work with, my employer made me sign a legal form saying I wouldn't sue them for that abuse and they would let me out of my non compete. Since Ive done that, my career has hit rock bottom and that company continues to employ the person that abused me. I have over 100 emails to all the bosses over me asking for help, telling them how bad the abuse was and they all ignored it. I look back now and felt like I signed away my right to sue them for letting that abuse take place since I was suffering from extreme anxiety and depression from the abuse and worried about how I would be able to support my kids if I didn't sign it so I could take another job in my field. This happened about a year and a half ago. Is it too late for me to sue my former employer for putting me in that position for three years and then having me sign a form saying I wouldn't sure them knowing it was my only way to get away from the abuse since I was under contract with a non-compete?

I have what may be a clear-cut case of my employer having

I have what may be a clear-cut case of my employer having taken gross advantage of my skills over several years, performing 2 jobs, but only being paid for one. Specifically, I work for the state of Georgia at a mental hospital. From 2012 to 2015, I was working as the Director/Research Coordinator of the Office of Research, and working as a Behavior Specialist, teacher, and counselor; but I was only ever paid for the latter...a significantly lesser paying position. The research job turned out to never have been actually created at the home office level, even though I was told it was legit, and received a formal letter from the Clinical Director affirming my appointment to the research position. In May of 2015, I was called in to a high-level meeting with HR, and my new superviors, and the clinical director, during which they informed me my research job was never properly authorized, and I was to be moved back to Behavior Specialist only, essentially amounting to a demotion. I was never compensated for my research job, even though I performed the duties of both positions at the same time. This sudden change of my position caused the canceling of a major study I was involved with, consisting of a team of IBM scientists, Cornell University, and the CIO and Assistant Deputy Commissioner of my state division... a project, that if successful, would have easily save the state millions of dollars per year, and saved lives.I recorded the entire length of the high-level meeting. During which, parties involved admitted their part, and therefore guilt. I did not inform them I recorded the meeting; but I know Georgia law allows for such recordings, as long as I was party to it.I want to file a lawsuit. I have given them ample time to resolve my concerns about this matter, and to fairly compensate me; but they have blown smoke screens, deferred to grievance policies that put my complaints in limbo, and have since May of last year tried to create an environment for me that has been so toxic as to force me to resign. I have evidence of this too.I need serious legal help, and I need it right away.

I recently resigned from a position of 90 days because the

I recently resigned from a position of 90 days because the person I reported to was verbally and body language abusive on a daily basis. His attitude towards me became more so after I informed him he was intimidating to my staff, etc. long story short- I walked into a mess at this job and accomplished many good things in a short time. When I gave 30 days notice after seeing company execs emailing how incompetent the business office was, I was informed I would be leaving immediately.This company pursued me for months and I resigned my other job for them. They are paying me two weeks resignation pay and waiving a Sign-on bonus and moving expenses. I am now jobless with two mortgages, etc. Do I have any rights here? I have enough proof from other employees to show this is a hostile working environment.Thank you

I have been employed as an EIT with a PLLC from October 2013

I have been employed as an EIT with a PLLC from October 2013 to present. Within the last six weeks, the man who owns my company has insisted I provide him with daily time sheets. I am the only female who works for this particular firm and no other employee is required to accomplish the same. In addition, the owner has been verbally abusive with me though I think it's just his method of communication and lack of verbal skills as opposed to intentional maltreatment. Only one other employee (a male draftsman) has been subjected to anything close and it was an isolated incident (phone thrown at his head by the same individual who owns the company).

Evidence collection process? I'm in the midst of a

Evidence collection process?I'm in the midst of a bloody severance negotiation and likely lawsuit with my abusive employer. He tried to lock me in my office like a chimp in a cage. Going to be an ugly battle since I know how vicious he is already. I have both an employment lawyer and intellectual property lawyer on my team, but they both have their hands full.Would like to lend a hand rounding up needed evidence if possible.Mental anguish is a possible angle and justified. I happened to break down in tears at a local coworking space talking about my boss's abuse. Someone pointed out later there were cameras everywhere. Evidence of mental anguish as I gushed sobs uncontrollably, so sad.How can I help speed the process of getting that footage? Can you draft a letter to send to the business owners of that coworking space?I can provide the day it happened and would like to see footage from the whole day since my things had been rearranged quite rudely that day.

I am a contract nurse military base. I have worked with a

I am a contract nurse for a military base. I have worked with a patient for 2 school year. I go to school with him and administer care. In Feb of this year, I witnessed the teacher of my patient, do what I felt was physical abuse to another student in our classroom. I reported this and the teacher was out of our class for a period of time while this was being investigated. Long story, short. She was placed back in our class to continue working. May 16th, I found out that my job will no longer be a contract job and that DODEA is going to make my job a government job. I was told to watch on USAjobs to apply. I continued to do so and no post was ever made. On June 16th in was informed of where I needed to apply for the first time. I was also informed that my job has already been offered to someone else for the nest school year. I really feel like this is in retaliation of my filing a complaint against their teacher. To make matters worse, the only other education aide that went and spoke with the FAP office on base about the abuse I witness was also let go at the end of this school year. Her case is not the same, and I get that, but I am just very confused about how this is going down.
