My boyfriend boss is very abusive. He calls all hours

My boyfriend boss is very abusive. He calls all hours yelling and screaming, shows up at jobsites and belittles employees when they are working in dangerous environments. He is especially hard on my boyfriend who is the foreman. He got into a fight with him on the jobsite because Dean had to choose to listen to one boss or the other as they had opposing tasks and make threats that the will be fired if they don't choose his side. this particular time he took his car keys, his radio and left him stranded right after telling him he was going to "[email protected] kill him. He takes advantage of Dean because he is salary and will make him work ridiculous hours working with electricity. it is not unlike tell him to work 21 of a 25 hour period witout additional pay. He also drink excessively on all day long. he pops his first beer at 8am and continues to drink all day. In this company there is no HR. If the employee have a complaint they must approach one of the two brothers who are owners. they have fear of retaliation from the mean one and the other usually tells them they must deal with it.

The managers have said that they are happy with my work performance but it is quite stressful and last night I checked myself into the ER. I did that once before a few weeks ago and spent the night in the hospital. I am not sure how long I can continue working there whether the managers are happy with my work performance or not.

The next day the hotel manager called our company and complained and sent a photo to our company of us at the hotel bar. Of course my company got embarrassed and several of us were reprimanded.

Hi. I am a physician who was terminated a month ago by my employer. The events surrounding the termination was quite odd and i am thinking of filing a pawsuit if i have a case. I was on fmla leave for job-related stress. I went to my office after an argument with my wife and ended up taking some shots of liquor in my office until early morning. The next day I was fired allegedly for drinking in the hospital grounds and reportedly accessing patient's health records while drinking which was not at all true. I was not given an opportunity to speak to the hospital board to dispute the allegations. I now have a black mark in my employment history because of this. I would like to sue if I have a case. Please advise. Thank you.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: North dakotaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full time.

Follow up to the question I just asked: this girl has done a good job but as of late, had a very sour attitude. Today she told other employees that she dreads coming to work each day and hates it here. Are there certain grounds of firing that would not obligate me to pay unemployment?
