I work for a hedge fund as a Compliance Officer. I started

Hi. I work for a hedge fund as a Compliance Officer. I started working there back in April of this year and the firm is located in Dallas, Texas. My boss, the CCO, has disparaged me in front of my peers many times and also wanted to speak to me about my resume, which she attached to the meeting planner when I started working at this firm many months ago. She then canceled the meeting and scheduled it for tomorrow. I think I'm going to get terminated soon, so just wanted to know if I had a cause of action for hostile work enviornment as everyone in the firm see's me in the same fashion she does. I have some documents depicting her rudeness but most of the abuse is verbal from her or my colleagues who are the same level as me. We all report into my boss, the CCO. I guess my question is should I quit or just have them terminate me and then see a law firm with my all my documentation in hand? I think this might constitute as a hostile work situation.Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated.Regards,Raj

I endured physiological abuse for over 2.5 years from a second level boss. I went into dissociation but as my health deteriorated over the years with no answers I went to see a mental health professional who diagnosed me with chronic delayed onset PTSD last year which was 5 years after the abuse endedApparently I didn't know till today that I would have had to file a complaint with the EEOC. Are there exceptions to the EEOC filing when delayed onset PTSD is involvedThank you

My husband forced to resign over harassment. Worked over 10

My husband forced to resign over sexual harassment. Worked over 10 years with perfect record. Worked with accuser for 5 years. Many of their conversations were off color that the accuser initiated. One day it went to far, she walked in his office faced her butt to him and said how do I look in my Mimi skirt. He got up and padded her ass, she said to him you went to far, he said I thought we were just filling around, he apologize and told her it would never happen again and the filling around needed to stop. I am very upset about the actions of my husband but I can not stop thinking he was set up. I asked but we never got the copy of the complaint, he never got to get his side of the story documented. The accuser is on work release that the GM arranged that cost my husbands department $1,200.00 a month in covering her shift. My husband wanted to put her on leave of absence. The company does have a no tolerance sexual harassment policy. Over this time period my husband did voice his option on the new direction of the company that was not well received. Is there any legal action we can take. If there is I want compensation for medical coverage and salary until he finds a new job. I would also like to sue the accuser personally.

Hi a year ago I was hired for a particular job turns out it was a bait and switch and I was not doing 90 percent of what j was hired for. My hours were even different than what I signed up for in taking the job. Now after a year my employer is trying to force me to change all my hours again and still not doing what I was essentially hired for is this legal?

I have lost wages because my supervisor gave me an overall

I have lost wages because my supervisor gave me an overall below in my performance review for the year despite the fact that I have made several complaints to my department director about my supervisor treating me differently than the other co-workers and that she reports my work inacurately and constantly harass me. Nothing has been done about her behavior and now i have lost some wages because of that. I need a lawyer because I believe that I have been discriminated against

I submitted a complaint about my boss to HR outside my

I submitted a complaint about my boss to HR outside my retail location. 2 weeks later I found myself on a performance plan with several moving targets to hit. I have since been terminated. Before being fired, I had tried one last thing to get some appropriate action; I submitted an ethics complaint to Lowe's employee relations. As a result, I received a letter in the mail for a “severance pay offer” that apparently Lowes set up for qualifying employees in about 2012. The offer they made is about half of what I think it should be, considering I would be restricted from working for a competitor for 12 months. Since the last 8 years of my career has been with Lowes or a retailer who could be a competitor, this poses a problem. I can't use my experience and skills to their fullest for 12 months…and that limits my income. I have found another job for much less money, so I'm not going to starve or lose my home.So, should I submit a counteroffer? And if my counteroffer was submitted with some sort of attorney involvement (ie. Letter head, or on behalf of…) would this be more convincing…resulting in acceptance of my counteroffer?

I am a 61 almost 62 year old man having great difficulty

I am a 61 almost 62 year old man having great difficulty finding work i the last few years. Recently I was approached by a firm out of CT to join a team selling services i know very well, and could add value. At the same time I was talking with two other firms about some consulting/contract work for 6 months or more. The CT firm was full-time role, less money but benefits and they really wanted me to join. I interviewed with 4 people in log phone discussions, written plan and made a final trip to CT on 8/9/16 to meet my new boss from India and the CEO of the company. Offer was made, accepted, officially turned down the other offers as this company was aggressive in how i could really assist their business. Started Monday 8/22/16 and today was called and told by an SVP that today was my last day due to bad communication with a company this firm is merging with, sorry but no real explanation, they said it was an oops! I turned down other potentials for a payday and they made a mistake that is costing me greatly especially at my age.

I have a heart condition that qualifies under the ADA. I had heart failure and started an employer suggested leave of absence as a reasonable accommodation on August 8, 2016. On August 15 the new union had a contract ratification they provided $1000 signing bonus for all active employees and I am told I don't qualify because of the leave of absence. I am also using intermittent FMLA at the same time.
