Is there a legal remedy for a groundskeeper for an off campus student housing complex (privately owned) who, to date, has had trash bags thrown down at him from the third and fourth floors. He is unable to determine which student and the bldg manager has ignored the issue and made no attempt at discovery through several cameras covering the area.

Of great concern is the sharing of common areas such as the ladies restroom, the copy room and various machines and surfaces that the affected employee may have touched. We are well aware of good hand washing procedures, but if the affected person did not exercise those procedures, shouldn't we at least be notified that a case exists? Also, shouldn't the common ladies restroom and the worker area at least be sanitized?

I was recently let go from my job , my question is do I have any recourse. I was told my department was being shut down and not to worry I will be moved to a new program . I did not receive Ny training and had only phone and email contact with my manager. I raised a lot of question about the work quality from our allied contractors and feel that could have played a part in my termination. When I was let go I was told the reason was because my program shut down, but it was my understanding that I was moved to another program.
