A fellow employee tainted my cigarettes with fluorescent penetrant

A fellow employee tainted my cigarettes with fluorescent penetrant at work. When I left work I took a cigarette out of the pack but noticed that there was penetrant on the filter of the cigarette before I put in my mouth. Normally you cannot easily see the penetrant unless it was held under a black light, but because it was saturated along with a number of other cigarettes in the pack. The president/owner was not at work at the time so I notified him the next day. He never questioned anyone but drafted a letter a gave one to each employee. No action was taken to identify who was the culprit. What action can I take?

There Doctors of Law! My name is*****

Hi there Doctors of Law! My name is***** *****, and I'm an educated Black Woman, good heart, hard worker and my handsome son {Eagle Scout - Troop 212} has said over and over, "I love my mama!" Speaking of hard work, and loyalty, in-spite all, I was sexually harassed, and sexually assaulted on my job {FBISD/ Fort Bend Independent School District} and you would think, since I proudly been serving 'Sixteen years, I would've been supported from my job. NOT!This terrible incident has left me and my son homeless... Yes we stayed in a shelter for 6 - 7 months at the FBWC/ Fort Bend Women's Center Shelter, and if it was not for this remarkable agency, I would've probably ended my life! My son became an Eagle Scout while living at FBWC shelter, and he also give praises to FBWC for genuinely supporting him! Here's a brief synopsis of what happened to me.March 17, 2014 @ Lake Olympia Middle School my co-worker {Del Shun ****** Sr.} New Coach who's a Special Aid Certified Teacher, and at that time, I was his Teacher Assistant. Well during seventh period on that particular day with other co-workers and students in the same classroom; Mr. ****** Sr., sitting at his desk opposite corner of the classroom... Forcefully Shoved my Head Downward Toward His Groin as I was leaning over to view some photos on the school desk computer that he took during ‘Spring break.I was shock, and baffled! I'm almost fifty-years old, I never in the world... would think - this could, or would happen to me! And yes, I immediately told his Fret brother, who's the Assistant Principal! And, I also wrote the sexually harassment and the sexual assault incident in print, when I got home that night on the FBISD server! Again, I'm a kind person, and so I did request for this new co-worker... Mr. ****** Sr., desperately needs immediate psychological counseling!The investigation started, and I was {confusedly} put on 'Administrative Leave with pay - which had already turned into a month! It was suggested to me that FBISD was not going to do nothing, because, prior to the incident, I had a quick chat with Mr. ****** Sr., about my wild and fun college days… NEVERTHELESS, I still should share my sexually harassment and sexual assault incident to the police. Well, I did in April of 2014, I told the Stafford police, and that's when ALL HELL broke loose! Case # ***** 00 661.Because, I shared everything about my co-worker{Mr. ****** Sr.} this predator and disrespected creep… Everything about his on-going insulting sexual behavior and comments, including when he drop his pants ALL the way to his ankles, with a bulge in his pants, and paraded around the students {boys} who some of them been sexually molested in their younger years and so now their anger and etc has landed them in the {BIC} Behavioral Inclusion Classroom.Mr. ******'s {reported} response, "Fret you know, I'm comedian and yeah I went a little-bit too far. No big deal." Regardless some kind of action had to take place, and Mr. ****** Sr., was moved to another campus, and I was brought back to 'Lake Olympia Middle School, which I was categorize as an ‘Trouble Maker by the majority of my peers at work, and my son who also attends high school in the FBISD became a target for retaliation, and they are still giving him retaliation, since, I'm on leave with no pay! While, I'm still seeking for fair justice! Because I still haven't gotten paid since 2014 of December; and FBISD is still fighting not to give me 'Workman's Comp!In-spite what the Sugarland Orthopedics Sports and Meds have written in their medical report of my ‘Cervical Vertebrae misaligned by the downward shoved on my head.May of 2015... EEOC gave me the 'Right to Suit under 'Gender Discrimination and Retaliation, and under the 'Prose Rights, I was able to file my 'Civil Law Suit against 'FBISD in July of 2015.After being in ligation for five months on March 10, 2016 the U.S. Southern District Court - Federal Judge David Hittner … Dismissed my case 'WITHOUT PREJUDICE for not {clearly} defining my 'Statement of Claim???My understanding ... My statement of claim is what EEOC gave me the 'Right to Suit. And no, I have not yet put a price tag on ALL my sufferings, because we had not gotten to that point yet. The docket shows {***** vs FBISD} Case # *****:15-cv-01693 supposed to be heard either in the month of November or December of 2016.Yet, also my research has showed my ‘Statue of Limitation {Two Year Period} has ran out from the time of the sexual assault incident which took place on March 17, 2014.Conclusion, I've research, and I've read that I have 120 days to RE-file from March 10, 2016. Please share your 'Wonderful Legal Knowledge of what is really correct. What's my right (s}? Have my ‘Statue of limitation run out from the actual sexual assault incident date? Do, I still have a chance, and if I do under what grounds, and under what section code? Pre-Thanks!

I was denied an interview promotion because my

I was denied an interview for a promotion because my employer set qualifications that exclude a disproportionate number of women (prior CEO experience). In our organization (XXXX) 87% of full time staff are women while only 4% of CEOs are women. Their grading scale for determining who to interview is a rating system that they give to a volunteer Board of Directors. The scores that excluded me from even getting an interview are prior CEO experience. Despite being the 2nd in command - Associate Executive- for over 6 years with stellar reviews, they did not even interview me for the CEO/Executive Director position. They only interviewed men. Through their process, they are excluding me and the majority of women in the organization because very few women get to be CEO, and their rating scale to get an interview to become CEO is based on this discriminatory scale. I have proof via email and wonder if this is discrimination I should pursue?
