I need advice on how to proceed. I am a manager, and my

I need advice on how to proceed. I am a manager, and my manager 8 months ago started acting irrationally. Started accusing me of not doing my job, of not acting in the interest of company, etc etc. When I would present facts, he would be dismissive. I went to neutral HR organization in our company to receive coaching - nothing worked and things got worse. Neutral HR advised me to take notes, and to summarize what I've done on a weekly basis to my manager, and ask for advice via email. When things were not improving I went to HR that is directly related to my department. At the same time my peer and colleague was also having issues with my manager, and our VP spoke to our manager - our manager behaved normally for about a week. With my colleague things progressed fine, but with me they got worse. My manager did not want to meet with me, would advise me to do one thing and then blame me if something didn't go the way it should although I followed his advice. He does not speak with me, and barely greets me only after I've greeted him - at times even if I greet him, he is quiet. I had my mid year review and he was upset, angry and told me I should have been doing many things that were not part of my performance goals. After this I went back to HR and said that things didn't improve and they need to step in. While I was meeting with HR, my manager walked by the room and looked very upset. When I returned to my department HR contacted my manager, and he let me know that he has a meeting with HR and he is looking forward to it because he has plenty of documentation on me. After that, I asked him a question, he got so angry that I asked him a question that he pulled me in a room along with my colleague and was upset telling me that I am not meeting his expectations etc etc. I went back to HR to report this incident - he saw me again in HR office and walked in the room and said if I am to go to HR he should be also invited. HR said that they told my manager not raise any of my performance concerns in front of my colleague. HR said they will difuse the situation and work with both of us. No follow up meeting has been scheduled yet. In the meantime, my manager is getting bad again - angry, accusing me of things, not speaking with me. At this point, I've stopped greeting him since he has not greeted me back in months. Today I had another incident where he is angry telling me he is preparing documentation for HR. I have been looking for a new job within the company but to no avail. HR is aware and said they would help, but they didn't. I plan on going to HR and asking that I am put in a different department or that I start reporting to a different manager because I cannot work effectively in this environment anymore. What rights do I have as an employee?

I had a serious car accident in March this year. I went back

I had a serious car accident in March this year. I went back to work within 2 weeks (They didn't pay me while I was off). But due to my injuries was not able to do site visits etc,. they knew this and were working round it by me taking on other duties to release another member of staff to do these. I was hospitalized on May 19th and they called me and told me that it was my last day because they were downsizing, doing no more work in Las Vegas and had sold the building. I went in the following week to pick up my checks and belongings. I have in touch with the Director of Operations as he has his own company and I have done some work for him whilst I am off.They have advertised the job the laid me off for on Craigslist.Is this right? I know Nevada is a right to work State but I am just gutted by this. During my time with them (August 11st 2015 to May 19th 2016) I brought in over $2m of work, my work was exemplary and I had not complaints from anyone.

I have a question about wrongful termination, I live in Las

I have a question about wrongful termination, I live in Las Vegas Nevada and work at a local casino as a cocktail server. I was recently terminated because of accusations of being aggressive and pushing another co worker. I was the victim and they said I was the aggressor. They would not show me any proof of this (Survellance tapes). I know Nevada is a right to work state and can be terminated for any reason but I feel like I was treated unfairly and without proof and justification. Any help deciding on the next course of action would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance. Ally

My girlfriend's company is having them do a mandatory safety

My girlfriend's company is having them do a mandatory safety and awareness course from an outside company. They are making everyone sign a release of liability waiver and according to the waiver that they sign, either the company she works at or the outside company will not take any type of responsibility for mental, emotional, phycological and or physical abuse. If any of these things happen, they would need to use their own medical insurance and that workman's compensation will not be covering any of these accidents or injuries if they occur. According to the waiver live ammo and bb guns and physical contact will be used and if they don't sign the waiver the fear of losing there job was brought up by several employees. We would like to know what type of action should be taken. My girlfriend as well as several other employees are afraid of guns and don't like or care for guns. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
