I am a 57 year old single woman who has worked at the same

I am a 57 year old single woman who has worked at the same company, full time (30 hours), for 10 years. The company has recently hired a new manager (from inside the company). the company is a small business with under 10 employees. Over the past ten years I have negotiated a salary and compensation package including heath care. The past two years I have forgone a raise in my hourly pay rate to compensate for increasing heath insurance costs. Currently the company pays $1200 a month for my health insurance ($14,400 annually). The new manager has presented me with a new health insurance package that would cost me anywhere from over $4000.00 per year to around $3300 per year and have the company pay $6000 to $4000. The Company's net result is an $8,000-$10,000 cut in my compensation package while my job description will stay the same. No other person in the company is being asked to take a cut in compensation. I have an excellent work record with a spotless personnel file. My questions are related to age discrimination, sex discrimination or anything else that may save me from this situation. It is my belief that our new manager is using this to push me out the door and use the cost savings for increased compensation for herself and another younger employee (quite possibly in the form of heath insurance for the both of them). What are some options that I may have?

Is this harassment? Text I sent to a friend I have known

Is this sexual harassment? Text I sent to a friend I have known for a year: "I love you. I am rejected by you. Makes me feel like shit. I hate you. That's the simplest answer I can give. I hope you understand." The person I sent it to told me "I love you" the day before I sent the text. She never told me to stop texting her or talking to her. She just reported me. "Harassment is only illegal if it is so Frequent or severe that it creates a hostile work environment." But after she reported me she still talked to me like it was nothing.

Is it legal ring manager in the state of Colorado to inform

Is it legal for a hiring manager in the state of Colorado to inform employees of a job applicants past DUI? Is it legal for a manager to state that a former employee probably stole a television from the company? I was asked by my employer to provide medical information after I had a blackout at a company event. After I provided them with a letter from my doctor, I began noticing that I was getting into trouble for small mistakes written up for simple mistakes. I was also told by my boss that I ruined her entire day and put her in a bad mood and that I was an angry person. She told me to sign the write up and stated that we could do this the easy way or the hard way. I got up and left at that point. Since then I've been diagnosed with PTSD and asked for FMLA. When I told her of the need, she told me I was abondoning my job. She then inferred that she'd need to replace me, and loudly called the IT department in front of employees that I was taking leave for medical reasons. She also said I should clean out my desk area to make it clean for my replacement. I was only supposed to be gone for 2 weeks. I did receive the FMLA, but when returning to work, my doctor placed me on restrictions. She became angry and yelled at my in front of other employees yet again. While other employees are allowed time off, I'm constantly being reprimanded and subjected to constant nitpicking. An example is I missed a punction mark and a space on a contract. I'm concerned about my reputation and other employees have become rude when this wasn't a problem previously. My concern is that I will have to leave and I don't trust them to follow any legal guidelines concerning references. I've worked there almost 6 years and have been promoted 5 times. I'm very concerned since I'm still on FMLA and received an email from my boss stating we agreed that my days off would be Monday and Wednesday, which is an outright lie. I requested reasonably accomodation through HR asking that the policies and procedures be in writing so that I don't "violate" any policies. I have not received a response. The disturbing thing is that the above statements were made in my presence regarding job applicants and past employees. It was also stated on several occasions that out GM only liked to hire women and in the past I've been told to wear a dress more often. I really need to leave because it's causing even more emotional distress, but again, I don't trust them. What is the best course of action?

I have been dept manager with this company years. I

I have been dept manager with this company for 9 years. I am a woman 65 and have told them I plan to retire next May. I have gotten raises every year on my performance. Now all of a sudden I have been told that my leadership skills aren't good enough have been talked to twice within the last 2 months. I have NEVER been sat down with since I have been with this employer. I have had associates come up to me telling me I think they are trying to get rid of you. This company is Lowe's. I have also been recently transferred to a dept that requires lifting that I cannot do. I had no choice to be transferred to this dept. Any thoughts?
