My 34 year old daughter works for a Catholic school--has for

My 34 year old daughter works for a Catholic school--has for three years with outstanding job performance. She has an MA from Catholic University.The priest in charge of the school did not renew her contract and denied her a new position for which she was selected; citing a dioceses policy. When challenged, he admitted that there was no policy but that he was saying there was to protect her reputation because there were "rumors all over town" that she was having three affairs. The accusations are absurd and would be easy to disprove. One of the men he accused of having an affair with works at the school and was given a promotion as she was released. He has tried to do everything possible to try to show that the accusations were ridiculous.Then a conversation shown on a computer turned up as evidence. It is easy to show when, where, and who it came from. The evidence has been doctored, again easy to prove. In fact, the top, bottom, and sides were cut off; as was the date, time, and names. The priest said that it was turned into the school secretary anonymously. The secretary has no recollection of anyone ever turning anything to her.The priest has made unbelievable claims to my daughter about men have no control if a woman looses weight and that Catholic woman should never talk to a married man.We have filed with the EEOC. The Chairman of the School Board is encouraging parents to write letters in support of my daughter. The Superintendent, the Assistant Superintendent, and the Monsignor have urged the priest to mediate. The Bishop has been silent and the Pruest has dug in. Besides having no real evidence, the Priest did not follow any of the due process guidelines clearly spelled out in the personnel manual.The Priest tried to bully my daughter to sign a release statement. He would not even let her read it! Because she would not sign it, he withheld her last two months salary and of course kept her severance. The church lawyersnickered at us for doing all this for a very low paying position.The bullying and disgusting actions of this Priest have had a terrible effect on this young lady and her family. We do have legal counsel.Are we taking the right approach? Should we share the EEOC complaint with parents and the local newspaper? None of this makes any sense to us and we wonder if going public would force the issue.

I have been yelled at by my district mgr. twice; What do want me to do fire everyone and start over I will if I have too. Been texted by current mgr. that she wanted to change my schedule from opening to close.in a 24 hr. notice. This schedule been up for over a week. I said I had plans not fair. Her response was, if you don't you will lose these hours which was bad enough and in a different texted if you're not happy you can always transfer. What's funny 2 days before this the district mgr. wanted to transfer me and she told him I like Bill and he is an asset to the store. Last is when I came into work yesterday I was told that the district mgr. told her that you have no asst. mgrs. in this store. Very hurt full since I have been there 2 years as a assistant mgr. and then added I need to step it up if I want to say in the store .I am 60 years old and never been talk to like this in my life. All these actions and there's more have witnesses. I think it's a form of harassment. What do you think.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: CaliforniaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No. I need my job but at the same time enough is enough.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Because of the Managers lack direction and the amount of shrink in this store and the pressure there under they turn over is very high, in fact in the last two weeks 4 people have quit and asstaint manager .I have been in the retail biz 30 years. Been a Manager I am know cry baby I am not on social security and have been trying to get out for over a year. Fulltime jobs are far and in between. Seems when the employers find out my age my experience is out the window. So unti I find something that can support me I continue to put my head down a fight myself inside. Iam not a sue person but these last actions should have not been said or put to me another way. Not bully me into my actions.The company is Dollar General

I was harassed by a doctor I didn't work for a few years ago and he actually fired me and told me everyone wanted me to leave. The weird thing is I was there only to work for my husband and he had no idea what had been done. Could I have sued him for harassment back then?
