Can employer 'retaliation' be based on me complaining to a

Can employer 'retaliation' be based on me complaining to a Board Member about being passed over for promotions(I was never specific about any of the protective characteristics) and the Board Member addressing my immediate supervisor to find out about my status, and my immediate supervisor removing me from the position 4 days after the board member spoke to her because I never addressed being discriminated again, just being passed over?Also, can employer 'retaliation' against me be based upon after I quoted statistics about a Board Meeting about the lack of Black male teachers in our school district, the next morning, a clerical worker told me that I did not have the support of the teachers union in the position that I applied for because a lady on the hiring committee was 'offended' by me quoting statistics from the Education Department about the lack of black male teachers in our Nation's schools, I was not given the promotion, and I never said I faced discrimination on my race, sex, gender, or any other 'protected' characteristic.

I am a Registeted Nurse & just resigned after 4 years

I am a Registeted Nurse & just resigned after 4 years working in a Assisted/ Independent facility. I have taken a job with a Home Care Agency that provides some care to residents that live on the Independent side of the Assisted Living facility. My new employer was told by my ex employer I m not permitted to work in the facility. I have left in good standing & previous assisted living employees are working with this home care company taking care of independent residents. I feel I'm being Singled Out because I resigned from the Director of Nursing Position. Basically I feel "retaliation " is being done. Can my ex employee do this to me? They have a " at will" policy '& I didn't sign any kind of agreement. I'm waiting for a explanation of why I'm being singled out. What can I do, to turn this around? Thank You, ***** *****JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: New JerseyJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No

My sister will be at her current job 1 year in October. She was diagnosed with Colon cancer within the past 3 months and is undergoing Chemo. Her boss has always been abusive but his abuse has ramped up since her treatment started and is threatening termination, unjustifiably so.This is a horrible situation for her to be in. She has not used any time except what was accrued for her surgery and chemo treatments. She is petrified of being fired and will not be able to continue her cancer treatment if she is. Please help me to understand her rights and what she should do to protect herself. Thanks. She works in PA.

I have received a poor performance review from my manager at

I have received a poor performance review from my manager at Boeing SC mostly 2 meet some expectations. I do not agree I was that low of a rating since I never had this before in 10 years. I have been struggling at home with my autistic sons behavioral problems and chaos in the summer schedule and his lackof sleeping. My focus has been limited and I hav been trying to compensate with extra hours at home but still making errors. I am under enormous stress and anxiety worrying about my job and the review all year. My manager wants me to sign/agree my performance ratings and develop a plan. I am afraid they are trying to remove me from the division or group. I am open to reassignment at a reduced level 3 or move to another project/group. My brother says to get legal advice before signing anything

I am using made up names---I own a dental practice in

I am using made up names---I own a dental practice in Denver: Here is what happened-About 3 years ago we had what we call our yearly planning meeting-During the meeting each member of the office has their own paper bag and each person puts a note in everybody's bag something good about that person. During that meeting there was alot of humorous banter and that is the best that I can remember. Well, I put a note in Susie's bag about Mary that said totally in jest and trying to be funny, "That Mary is a slut don't you think?" Susie and Mary are sister in laws and good friends. I totally do not believe it to be true, but thought I was being funny because of the banter that was going on. Well, Susie and I had a laugh about it at the time when she read my note. Well, I saved the note as I had saved all notes from those kinds of things. Well, a week ago, there was a funny incident that reminded me that I had put that note in my pocket to show Susie and laugh about it. Mary and a couple staff members were there and I showed it to Mary and a couple staff members just trying to be funny. My ONLY intent was to be funny. I totally did not believe what the note said. Mary called me that night and was livid. I understand that what i did was wrong and told Mary that and continued to be apologetic and remorseful. I continued to explain that I did it in what I thought was all in fun. The apology's didn't matter. ( I happen to know that what I thought was funny rekindled some old wounds that Mary had from her past) Again, I know I was wrong and take responsibility for it. So I'm not done---I am retiring at the end of Sept after 42 years and am an employee (actually an independant contractor for tax purposes) for the new owner who has been in the practice for 14 years. The new owner wants me to leave the practice after (retire early) this week. The new owner (Pete) consulted his lawyer and the attorney thought I should be asked to leave, because of some kind of exposure? This is the first of any kind of incident that I have had like this in 42 years . I feel like no process has been followed. I don't want to leave; I want to see if Pete can see this from any different light and keep me. I am not interested in pursuing any wrongful termination. I would only want to stay only if this could be worked out. Mary is on vacation this week and is the kind of person that wouldn't even want to be in the same room with me at this point. It seems like a discussion with all parties involved should at least happen

A few weeks ago this sub-contractor I had do some drywall

A few weeks ago this sub-contractor I had do some drywall work for me called the labor dept on me because he said I owed him more money. Which wasn't true but at this point that doesn't matter. Since he contacted them I guess the workman's comp division did an audit on me and said I was not properly insured. I started my home improvement company here in Denver in the end of 2011. I was not properly informed by my insurance agent about workmans comp. I have general liability coverage and thought since I was an LLC and that I 10-99 the subs that do work for me I was good to go. I don't know what to do I have 20 days to send in my compliance form to them. They want to know all the contractors I used for the past 6 months. I have a lot of guys I just use for grunt labor and dont 10-99 them. Do I have to list everyone or just the ones I will 10-99. I don't even know what I am going to do . I heard that they will fine me $250 a day for everyday I was not properly insured. Which over the past 4plus years comes out to over a half a million dollars. Will I really get fined that much. Why didnt my insurance agent tell me this . Why didnt I sign a waiver and turn it into the workmans comp people. I had no idea I was supposed to do that. Allied insurance even did an audit on me from 2013 and said I had too much money in sub-contractor pay and back charged me $2,500 for the year. You would think my insurance agent or Allied would have said something to me, right? I just don't know what to do at this point and I am super stressed over it. After all is said and done I show an income of $35,000-$40,000 a year thats it. How can they fine me a half a million dollars? How am I supposed to pay it? I don't have that kind of money at all. What happens if I can't pay it?Sorry, it was kind of a long question but I don't know what to do!Thanks,Denise
