I am a store manager at a large retail chain, I recently
I am a store manager at a large retail chain, I recently received an hr complaint from my assistant claiming I made racist statements and they were found to not be factual. I have since been forced to continue to work along side him and recently he filed an additional complaint stating that he is being retaliated against. Which also is not factual. The employee states he does not want to be transferred and now I am being forced to continue to work with someone I don't trust and cannot form a healthy work relationship with. Now today there was an anonymous complaint that I was being mean to a different employee. I feel like my assistant is attempting to coerce other employees to turn against me and I do not feel like my rights as an employee are being protected. I don't know what to do!
My boss is a Christian, I knew that when I got hired. I grew
My boss is a Christian, I knew that when I got hired. I grew up in a Christian and have many Christian values, but I don't believe in organized religion. During what is supposed to be our sales training meetings our managers often show religious based motivation videos and often requests we have a word of prayer. It makes me uncomfortable and I feel singled out when I don't participate. I believe my lack of participation has also resulted in me not getting leads from sales managers, and feel I will lose my job if refuse to participate. Is this legal?
Do I have a strong enough case to take before a federal
Do I have a strong enough case to take before a federal jury. I have filed an EEOC claim against my employer in February for racial harassment and discrimination. The harassment and discrimination happened over a 2 year period, in which I was called the "n" word almost daily by employees, in which a supervisor knew of the behavior and in a meeting acknowledged he did nothing to stop and subject to racial epithets by the owner. I was demoted from supervisor so the position could be given to a friend of the owner, who had no experience. I have 4 sworn witness statements from employees. Just waiting for EEOC to complete their investigation and be given my right to sue.On the down side of this, through stress from work, I began using drugs and in May was terminated for failing a post accident drug test.Does this hurt my case now?

I work with a very small oilfield service company with about
I work with a very small oilfield service company with about 15 men working there. There is an engineer in the company that last year became very upset with me and threatened me physically, cursed at me, and used a racist comment. He is white, I am Hispanic. I am 63 and he is early 30s. I complained to management, and they said, "that's just the way he is." He has verbally abused several other employees, and he did the same thing again to me yesterday over the phone. He was on speaker phone and his rant was witnessed by another coworker. Do I have any options? I can't really afford to quit, as the industry is in a slump.
