I went on vacation and my boss had IT break into my email to

I went on vacation and my boss had IT break into my email to find an order that was emailed to me without following company procedures or notifying HR. My boss and I have history where I have reported her to HR more then once and she has a history of being vindictive. I understand the company policy on email not being private. My concern is that there was no justification to do so when other options existed that would have resolved the order issue. I am also a manager with 25 people under my supervision and some of the emails reflect health and policy issues that may be deemed sensitive. I have reported the incident to HR who has admitted to the procedure not being followed and apologized to me. What legal action can I take to protect myself at work from a vindictive boss? How can I let my company know that this incident has created a hostile work place and I fear future harassment . I am a 26 year employee and feel I need legal advise.

I had a new roof installed about 2 1/2 years ago. I now have a leak. I called the roofing company who did the job but the owner has closed that LLC business and now works for another roofing company. He came out, went up on the roof and looked at the problem, told me it was his workers fault, but since he closed that company it would cost me $1250 to fix it and he had no legal or moral responsibility

An old roommate of mine took my car without asking me and totalled it. I had let my insurance laps so now it's been in my driveway since February 2014. Last payment was January 2014. The loan company has not and I believe will not come get the car. They think it was burned up in a fire. I live in Texas and my question is what can I do with the car itself, I'm not contacting the bank because I'm wait on the SOL to run out. What if anything can I do with actual car, it's totalled not burned up?

I have a home warranty company and made a claim on a dishwasher leaking. They hired a repairman to come out and I assumed he fixes and he leak. Two months later my kitchen tile is coming loose. We went to repair the tile and realized there was still a leak under the dishwasher and my cabinets were soaked and now has what appears to be black mold all on the bottom of the cabinets. I have called the home warranty company as well as the company who was supposed to repair the dishwasher with no resolution. As a matter of fact both companies are pretty much ignoring me and my request for call backs.
