I have an ex-employee that worked for me for 2 years. He

I have an ex-employee that worked for me for 2 years. He recently gave a 2 week notice. During his tenor at my company, he worked in one of my 3 buildings. His office was where I had my original desk, and my bottom drawer was locked. I lost the key. A year ago the employee asked if he could use the drawer for his area and to store work files. I told the employee I lost the key to the drawer and its been years. A couple of months later I was visiting the building and the employee informed me that he was able to open the drawer. I asked him how he opened it up, he said he just used a plastic card. I said okay, I'll come in this weekend and clear out the drawer for you. Well I forgot to go back and clean it out. A month ago my office manager noticed the desk area had been cleaned as this is where I also kept my personal family pictures even though I hadn't been at the desk for over a year. She left a note for this employee want to know where all my items had gone. The employee said that he had placed everything in 2 small boxes and placed them on the shelf. The employee then used my previously locked drawer and placed his pendeflex files in the drawer and took the pictures off the desk and also placed them on the bookcase. The employees position was that as the supervisor of that building that he needed an area to place work documents and since I his manager no longer worked in the building and seemed to have no objection of the drawer being opened took it upon himself to clean out my previous desk, mind you I have not worked there for 17 months and I did say I would come back and clean out the drawer and never did. My question is, I believe in that drawer I had left some money. After the employee left and I went through the boxes I could not find the money, which I believed I left in the drawer. I don't have any proof as it was placed there 10 years ago. What is your advice. The employee no longer works for the company.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: FloridaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: no, not yetJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: no

Pearl. and I have a question regarding termination. HR was

Hello, Pearl. My name is ***** ***** I have a question regarding termination.JA: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?Customer: HR was never involved in the last three meetings with the clinic supervisor. Everytime I asked why HR was not here, he would say "that she couldn"t make it". I left an email to HR to ask to meet with her to discuss the write-ups, but she never responded. I submitted my two week notice yesterday. I came to work today and was promptly fired. I met with the clinic supervisor. I immediately asked where Heidi, the HR manager was, and again, "she couldn't make it. I asked if there was another HR person to meet with us and he said, "Heidi is the only one". The meetings I had with this supervisor, HR was never present. I voiced my concern that it seemed illegal that HR was never present and he told me it was. So is this a wrongful termination? Unfortunately, this job is non-unionized. I feel discriminated and targeted. I am also the oldest employee in the clinic who at this time has a foot fracture with a boot. I have missed two days because of my foot fracture. Thank you for any information you can present. IreneJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: There is no union. Full time. And I believe Washington is a "at will" state, anyway.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There was also present the brand new nurse supervisor at two of the meetings, who has only been with the company less than two months. Will I be charged for the consultation? Thank you

I'm being harassed, bullied, and retaliated against by my

I'm being harassed, bullied, and retaliated against by my employer. I'm presently on Short Term Disability due to stress/anxiety caused by my Supervisor and 2 Group Leaders. My doctor put me on medication. While I've been off work I have received telephone calls with voice mail messages and regular text messages regarding future Vacation Time scheduled this year. they keep upsetting me knowing I'm on FMLA Short Term Disability. In the past I took my Group Leaders to HR, but that didn't help. My Supervisor and Group Leaders are retaliating against me now. My Group Leaders are very angry people. I'm terrified of them. I'm scared everyday that I go into work that I'm going to be fired. One of the Group Leaders says the MF word and f word all the time. He takes his fist and beats on the plexiglass to get my attention, instead of using the telephone to just call me inside the area that I'm working. They get mad and roll their eyes at me when I ask questions. On 1st shift I had no problems with Management, but once I was transferred to 2nd shift it all went downhill. I've been called into the office 7 times in 15 months. My Performance Reviews say I meet expectations, but they constantly criticize me. My Performance Evaluation for 2016 said I met expectations, but 1 month later My Supervisor and 2 Group Leaders called me into the office again. The bullying Group Leaders are trying to say I have Performance Issues due to time management. They said I can do the job, just not as fast as they would like. Everyone else has 6-8 years experience. They want me to do a Production Batch Changeover in 1 hour, but I did a Timeline Study and it takes 2-3 hours. My Supervisor told me in November 2016 he would put me on another machine to get a way from one of the Group Leaders so he would quit bothering/harassing me. My Supervisor never did and now I'm physically sick with Anxiety and Stress. I've had diahhrea, can't sleep, weight loss, crying, and nervousness. I've ,also got pictures of bruising on both my arms due to the machinery. We're short staffed at work. We've been short staffed the entire 15 months that I've worked on 2nd shift. We're short 7 employees. Management is stressed and angry and take it out on me. I feel like their verbal punching bag and they criticize me and my work all the time. I believe now they're trying to build a case to fire me, since I took them to HR in Sept.2016. Would I have a Case to Sue them? Can I Sue for Hostile Work Environment or Retaliation ClaimJA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: Is it Illegal for my Employer to call or text and harass me while I,m on FMLA Short Term Disability?JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And how long has this been going on?Customer: I live in Indiana. The harassment and everything else started August 2016.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: I contacted HR in August 2016.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: We're also not allowed to have water in our building. So therefore, we only get something to drink on our dinner break. They make us take our dinner break and 10 minute breaks all together. They worked us 13 1/2 hours with only
