This is an extremely short version of events. I worked as
This is an extremely short version of events. I worked as a secretary for 17 years at an Elementary School. In August 2013, the principal started harassing/bullying me, to the point that I filed a grievance in November, and asked the Associate Superintendent to move me to another school. I was moved to another school in November. In December 2013, my daughter became extremely ill and I put in for Family Medical Leave which I was granted. My daughter stayed in the hospital until February 25, 2014. My FMLA ran out March 27, 2014. During the time my daughter was sick, I was dealing with her illness, and also the weight of not having a paycheck and the outcome of the grievance that I had filed. Once my FMLA ran out, I put in for extended leave to care for my daughter and myself. I have been diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety and depression. In May 2014, the principal was placed on administrative leave, pending the investigation. In June, I was contacted by the school systems attorney stating that there was going to be a hearing in July because the principal was fighting her dismissal. This also added to my PTSD, anxiety and depression because I did not want to face this woman. I met with the attorney's to go over information that they had, and found out that the principal had submitted false documents and statements from her coworker friends. Basically the principal stated that I was retaliating because I had been written up the month prior to me filing the complaint. The documents that the attorney's showed me were bogus. I had NEVER seen those document ever, nor had I ever been written up. The documents were not signed nor were they in my personnel file, but she had submitted them to her attorney. Once I verified that the documents were false, the principal dropped her case against the County and she was eventually fired. Do I have a case against the principal?

I work for a company in California and work with an employee
I work for a company in California and work with an employee whom if she gets upset with you blurts out sayings but mostly "Snitches get stitches", which basically means she'll hurt you. This has been reported to our HR a few times now. Since we've alerted HR and if she continues to use these threats or hurt us, can the employer be held liable.
I am a teacher working for a Saudi subsidiary of the Raytheon
I am a teacher working for a Saudi subsidiary of the Raytheon Corporation. Last week I was punched by one of my colleagues right in front of my students. I informed my employer that I would not return to work until the person who hit me was removed from the job site. I notified Raytheon, the subsidiary and the Air Defens Force Military Police, who are investigating the matter. I told them I would not return to work to be assualted or drawn into a fight with this and other colleagues. I was threatened that if I did not return to work, actions would be taken against me. I have all documentation. This is just the last in a long line of events in my work place that range from threats, to verbal abuse to outright racism that has been not only tolerated but actually encouraged by Raytheon's doing nothing to stop these incidents. Again, I have all documentation, as well as correspondence between myself, my wife, Raytheon corporate and their Saudi Subsidiary (SALTS). I need legal counsel and have the money to pay for it. I will most likely lose my job for complaining and believe I am entitled to compensation for the damage done to an impeccable teaching career, harassment and physical and verbal abuse.
I work for a federal contractor in the human resources department.
I work for a federal contractor in the human resources department. I have been subjected to harrasment on the job including choking, hitting, pinching, shoving, rocks being thrown at me and other items. I finally called our ethics hotline who did investigate and found my claim to be validated and factual. However, this employee still continues to work in my department and i feel like my company did not take my claim seriously. Do i have any type of recourse?Thank you,Jennifer
Hi, my name is Chris
My friend works at a Los Angeles restaurant.
Hi, my name is ChrisMy friend works at a Los Angeles restaurant. Last week, the Manager physically attacked him, punching him in the eye and he had to go to the emergency room. He contacted the owner (who was not present) immediately and the owner responded that he would guarantee to cover the medicial expenses, but please keep quiet and do not discuss the incident further. Not wanting to lose his job, my friend decided to only write a letter of guarantee for both he and the owner to sign verifying the owner's agreement to cover the medicial expenses and some additional compensation for any missed time at work.Sadly, my friend explained that this is really not an isolated incident (apparently the manager is very abusive, and the owner, who is usually away, does not get involved or wish to deal with the manager), so I encouraged him to report the incident to the proper authorities (ie: police, dept of labor) - for the purpose of establishing a record of behavoir to the authorities, in what seems the likely event of future abuses.My concern is, employee's civil rights will continue to be violated by another employee while the owner acts irresponsibly and in complete neglect of business and staff!Regardless of how my friend and the owner agree (in writing) to handle the financial fall-out of this incident, the PATTERN OF ABUSE AND HOW TO END IT is the greater issue in my mind. Is there anything you can recommend I tell my friend. How can he put the owner on notice that HE MUST DEAL WITH THIS PATTERN OF ABUSE and explain what the consequences could be for neglecting to do so?Thank you!!
I work overseas in Afghanistan and am looking for advice on
I work overseas in Afghanistan and am looking for advice on my ability to persue legal action against my company for it's employees actions in creating a hostile workplace and defamation of my name and character. After seeking help from my supervisor for issues I was having with fellow co-workers he took my complaint right back to those individuals prompting physical threats which he did nothing to stop. Further, out or retaliation, they later spread very damaging gossip around the base about my sexuality which has lead to more harassment from soldiers and civilians alike and this damaging gossip has reached theater-wide. I travel from base to base as part of my job and hear the same gossip as I move about. My managers have done nothing to address the issues and have even been willing participants. I am also suspicious that there may have been some hacking of my computer by a fellow co-worker that has lead to some of these issues.
Details: I started work at Qualtiy Imports Mercedes Ft. WaltonView more employment law questions
Details: I started work at Qualtiy Imports Mercedes Ft. Walton Beach FL 8/13/12. After approx. 2 weeks I realized there was a ongoing, very bitter interdepartmental dispute between employees. Many were directly or indirectly envolved. Per other employees the dispute had been going on for years. It got so bad that management had to entervene in how the shop was run. Bitter infighting, spying, false accusations and more. I have been subjected to some of this. There were many meetings, interviews, etc with management and the employees. As time passed I found out about a team leader and his past - very bad, always starting trouble with other employees, A COMPANY DIRTY SECRET. Managements attempts to resolve the situation failed. The foreman felt he had to resign. The foreman leaving would have put the "trouble maker" in charge of me. I felt I had no choice but to resign. I believe the managment of has been negligent in their hiring practices. How can they hire a person and put them in this situation. I went to a lot of trouble and expense to move. I stand to loose a lot of money.This has been a HORRIBLE experince!!! How can they do this to a person??? Can a company be negligent by hiring a person and putting in a known hostile work environment???
