I recently quit working for a Home Health Agency as a nurse

I recently quit working for a Home Health Agency as a nurse out in the field seeing patients. There are various reasons that I quit. I filed a claim in TX for Unemployment but not sure if my reasons are good enough. I have 2 main questions...: 1) Our agency owner sent us an email stating that it was mandatory that we download an app on our personal cell phones. They only stated the app was for keeping track of whos working and whos and the clock and whos not. Come to find out after a few months, I found out this app called TSheets is also a GPS tracker and my agency was tracking us on our personal phones in our personal vehicles! Is this Invasion of Privacy as I think it is? We were never given a disclosure to sign stating we were being tracked by gps. Other people have sued over these kind of cases and would like to know if I have a valid case. Also, I was working doing my nurse charting online on a Saturday night until about midnight catching up on work. When finished, I sent our HR Adminstrator an email asking a question reg my vacation time rolling over from 2016 to 2017 as promised. I called Monday to follow up w her and she said, "The email you sent after midnight was not warranted sending that late;(she didnt get the email until Monday morning anyways!) and then she asked me if I was drunk! I am highly disappointed as a professional being spoken to this way. I feel that could be harassment, discrimination or slander. Does she have the right to make accusations like this legally and do is there anything that can be done regarding this issue? I quit due to these 2 main issues but also other issues as well. Im concerned about getting Unemployment now, but feel that I have some kind of a case. And if I do, Id love to pursue some type of action. Thank you for your time.

Is it illegal to video someone without their consent on

Is it illegal to video someone without their consent on private property? I was at work and was filmed. The customer came back in demanding I was fired for the video didn't show a coolant flush machine in it. I did do a Manuel and filled and you could see this on the video. I was not aware I was under surveillance. I didn't consent to be filmed while working by a third party. He demanded a refund and my termination. This isn't fist time this customer asked for a refund yet my job keeps giving our services away. I assumed since customers arent allowed in the shop for "insurance" reasons. That I would have my rights to privacy based on 4th amendment and my civil rights. Since Pennsylvania is a two party consent under the wire tap act, what's should my first steps be?

I had a horribly degrading experiance at work. My boss

I had a horribly degrading experiance at work. My boss myself and two coworkers were on our way back from a overnight trip. I told my boss who was driving I had to use the restroom. She passed by five places she could had stopped at but she wouldn't stop. I asked her many times to after, she refuses. I tell her if we don't stop im going to urinate on myself she finds it funny. My two coworkers stated in statments she was not stopping and found it humorous. We get onto a rural highyway road. I'm about to urinate at this point, in the car. I beg her to stop she pulls over on the side of the road I have no choice but to urinate out on the side of the road in the open, in front of my coworkers. She tells everyone in the office the next day. I feel horrible and degraded. Please help.

Hello,I am a local government employee and I was having personal cell phone conversations with a fellow employee on their work cell phone. I believe these phone conversations were recorded and the information was used to fasley accuse me of wrongdoing, which lead to a criminal investigation and other things. Was this against Mississippi law to record the conversations without consent? Do I have a case to file suit?
