I'm retired, but just got offered part-time employment at a

I'm retired, but just got offered part-time employment at a local church. They have a Position Description document I would have to sign and it has a General Responsibilities section that reads: "Employment in and by the church is substantially different from secular employment. Church employees must conduct themselves in a manner which is consistent with and supportive of the mission and purpose of the church. Their public behavior must not violate the faith, morals or laws of the church such that it can embarrass the church or give rise to scandal." Could I be liable for both unlawful and immoral acts - money wise? If I went to a strip club could I be sued somehow if it became public knowledge or is this limited to unlawful behavior? What are my liabilities in dollars? Is this just about losing the job or could there be other monetary damages? I'm not a saint and I don't want to put my retirement in jeopardy for something that happens to be immoral.

I live in a very small town called Rangely ,CO so I don't

I live in a very small town called Rangely ,CO so I don't know if you can help me but I work in pharmacy and had to turn my boss in for working impaired and many other illegal things she has done. My administration did nothing, and I was still having to work with her in the same office.. She found out that I was the one who was involved with the investigation and she started acting out towards me. So, I literally would shake and have anxiety attacks at work or even driving to work. I went to the doctor and he put me on FMLA. I need help in getting this taken care of so I can have my job back, patients are no longer in danger, and rumors that are going around town about me will stop. People in the pharmacy are saying degrading things to me on Facebook I have blocked them but if we have mutual friends, they will post something on my friends timeline to where I can see it. I am usually a very strong confident person who does my job at the highest of standards and now feel like I can't even go out in public. There is obviously a lot more to this and I have a lot of evidence against her and the hospital. I just don't know how to start....JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I have just reported things to HR and the illegal situations to my CEO and CCOJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Well I am on FMLA and the HR, CEO, and CCO asked me to go have a meeting with them tomorrow at 11:00 am but I am on FMLA leave
