I am an american working in Dubai, in the United Arab

I am an american working in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates. I worked up until today for ***************** based in New Brunswick, NJ. According to them, I was terminated due to poor performance, but have evidence otherwise. I was subjected to religious discrimination and wrongfully terminated based on their budget cuts, but managed to say it was poor performances. In the UAE you can only sue in the labor courts, not in the civil. In the labor, i can only sue them for example for the sign on bonus they never paid, but that is it. I cannot sue them for wrongful termination. My question, is can I sue them in the USA?

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?

I have an active EEOC discrimination case against my

I have an active EEOC discrimination case against my company...I am not technically fired from the company, but I am drawing unemployment from them. 3 months after my last assignment ended I received a call from my company offering me a position. They are well aware of the lawsuit against them and yet have offered me a job...I detect shadiness and the question is... if I accepted the job would that null my suit? I'm trying to figure out why would they even WANT to offer me a job knowing I am suing them. I am drawing unemployment, so am I obligated to accept the job from the company I'm accusing of discriminating against me? Oh and by the way...I need an employment lawyer. I'm suing for sex, religious discrimination and retaliation. All well documented.

Receiving a complaint email from a terminated employee

Receiving a complaint email from a terminated employee regarding the terminating process. Please take time to read it and let me know what action the company should take. the email was received two days ago. Jane(Fake name) did not do what the terminatedemployee said in the email. There were several people in the office. No one saw that Jane forcefully grab her hand or pushed her toward the desk. If it happened, the terminated employee might scream to express her pain, but no one heard that. I am writingto you to confirm I was wrongfully terminated in the work place. Before I was terminated I experienced an unusual level of hostility and a remarkable degree of harassment. Jane(Fake name), HR Department, has forcefully grabbed my arm in an attempt to removethe wireless mouse from my hand and also forced my body into my desk in order to remove the wires from the computer I was working on. I must stress that at this point I was not terminated. I am writing to you as a formality to report this incident and pleadyou to take the corrective action against Jane. At no point did I make any defensive or aggressive gestures towards her and it was completely unprovoked. If no action is taken to contact me and investigate this matter, it is my intention to proceed this matterfurther with Equal Employment Opportunity Commission of the wrongful termination and harassment that I experience. I will also be attempting to contact a lawyer to bring suit about other acts that I have found out about this company. Please contact me viaphone call and or email to follow up with my request. If I do not receive a response in a quick and timely manner, I will continue further with my actions.

Here's my scenario. We're in NC (Abercrombie and Fitch

Here's my scenario. We're in NC (Abercrombie and Fitch territory) - an applicant states on the application that she can work all shifts, all days, all hours - no restrictions. Interviewer tells her our need is for weekend shifts. She then says she cannot work from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday. She makes no mention of religion and the Interviewer does not bring it up. She is not hired, because the Interviewer feels (a) she misrepresented what she could work on the application (and had she been truthful he probably would not have interviewed her at all since he needs weekends), (b) the Interviewer specifically stated what he was hiring for and so feels that she took herself out of consideration for the job by then stating that she could not be available for the shifts he was offering.Religious discrimination or not? Should the Interviewer have tried to accommodate (knowing he couldn't) and of course had he said "Sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, you must be Jewish", he'd definitely have run afoul of the law. Were we required to do more than assess that she could not work the shifts offered, therefore she excluded herself?

I recently tried getting a reinstatement to get my job back.

I recently tried getting a reinstatement to get my job back. I was denied twice and not given explanation. Just a simple not at this time, when I know they are hiring amd need people. I was a Border patrol agent. I feel it is retaliation due to the fact that I filed before a grievance which allowed me to have facial hair in the work environment. This caused a hostile work environment and the union at the time was involved. By filing on the management team it caused for me to be black balled and treated differently. I decided after 1 month to drop the grievance which I had won and simply get back to work. Now that I left and trying to return those same individuals won't let me retun. Can I file suit?
