I work for a medical transportation company in Minnesota and

I work for a medical transportation company in Minnesota and I had an unsettling situation this morning. I came to work around 7am and it was 18 below outside. I went and grabbed my vehicle I was assigned to for the day and went to pick up my 1st client at 7:30. I dropped off my client and I noticed my van was still freezing after running for 45 mins. So I called my Dispatch office to tell them the heat wasn't working and I needed another van for my next client at 8:30. So I went to the garage and spoke to my dispatcher and she informed me that the only other van wouldn't be available until 10am. So she basically told me to go pick up my next client with no heat in -18 weather. So I did and my next client of course complained how cold it was. And my hands and toes were going numb as well so I felt so horrible for my client. So I was finally able to get into the other van and then I was told the reason the van wouldn't be available until 10am was they had an appointment to get it detailed. So my question is should I report them for elder abuse? I felt horrible and if it were my business I would have cancelled my detailing appt. The safety of my employees and clients is way more important. So please advise. Thank youJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Detroit Lakes MinnesotaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No I feel I should report it because nothing happened this time but what if it did?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't think so

When I became a U.S. citizen I changed my citizenship on my

When I became a U.S. citizen I changed my citizenship on my employer's employee info site and inquired if I had to do anything else. I was previously a lawful permanent resident and provided my green card as evidence of my right to work in the U.S. HR then insisted I REPROVE my right to work in the U.S. by demanding a copy of my citizenship certificate. Not knowing any better I complied, and they took a copy.JA: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?Customer: U.S. citizen as of 7/15/2016. Later I learned they had no right to do this as my presenting my green card established my right to work in the U.S. permanently. The Employer guidelines are quite clear on this and that asking again (say when the green card expires) amounts to discrimination on the basis of national origin. I advised HR of this and requested they destroy the copy of my citizenship certificate they made, which they claim they did, but they have been hostile toward me ever since.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Other than informally or vial email to HR? No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: The environment is politically hostile: I was warned that it was a Democrat shop and to "go along". I am very politically active OUTSIDE the office, never bringing up political issues inside, and requested and got, via email, assurances that my employer will not seek to curtail my external political activities. However, I still endure "left wing culture" in the office. Much of my family was wiped out by Hitler's national socialists and then robbed by Stalin's communists -- I am of Czech origin, and such a culture rising to the same hysteria that resulted in the murder of much of my family is very disturbing. My question is whether all this rises to the creation of a hostile work environment based on national origin.
