Im having trouble with a practice manager at work that seems

Im having trouble with a practice manager at work that seems to be gunning for me. My supervisor has told me that the manager and vet I work for HATE me and will fire me. He said they hate me and want to fire me becasue I told the regional manager things about them that got them talked to.. the vet belittles me, talks to me rude often, yells at me. Tells other staff in front of me how she wants to clone them as the only workers becasue shes so great and the rest of us are not, Im standing 2 feet from her when she looks at me like im awful. Im standing right there feeling like she just be littled me to a person I trained and has worked with us 7 months. Ive worked at this 15yrs. I have a lot of skills and training most of them do not have. The manager has a bad temper and yells and swears at all of us daily, pulled her scrub pants down in a meeting to say Crack kills. This was to demonstrate how another person wears her scrubs and that they fall down. Pants falling down was not allowed.. really? So she did this to talk about this employee, in a staff meeting and showed her butt and underwear to make a point.. She also sends cartoons on company e mail of a cartoon woman, Maxine cartoon photo coping her butt and thinks its sunny. She gave people pay raises she likes. even though I got a good evaluation. I didn't have a review or pay raise or even an evaluation meeting to say my good and things to improve. Just ignored me while everyone else had one and most got a raise. She also told others what I make and why she feels I wont get a raise. I actually talked in on the conversation. she shares personal information with others. I was sick an in the hospital and she was telling people I can;t be sick and she didn't believe me. I was off for almost 2 months and she didnt call me once to ask how I was. I almost died! Clearly hates me.. She tries to write me up for things other techs have done, not me and when she finds out, She lets it go becasue it was someone else. She just looks for things to harass me and make me un happy at work. . I was also pushed by a Doctor into an exam room to discuss pets medicatons with a client. apparently he didn't like I was standing in the doorway and literally shoved me into the exam room almost knocking me down. when I told my other supervosr about it..he said he doesn't mean it.. He has a disease called ashburgers.. SP? So he reminds him of his grandpa and feels he does things but not meaning to.. Not sure what that means but I don't want him to touch me or push me for any reason. As you can see. There is so much, its absurd.. I called the head of all of the departments and she wont return my call. I asked to meet with her and I had a meeting set and was sick more than once so she has not answered me back since.. I feel harassed, singled out for punishments and no end. I have been told by my other supervisors how much this manager hates me and wants me gone. Im very polite to her and one minute she is nice, then rude and I'm just not sure what to expect. I don't want to go to work there anymore but seems to me she wants me to quit. I hear she wont fire me becasue then I have course of action. I want to do something about this but not sure where to turn. Im 51 and feel im being discriminated for my age as well. There is more but I just can't even begin to say it all. I could really use some advice of what I can and ca't do about this. I know if the owners knew the truth about her, she would be gone. So many employees hvae left becasue of her this year. Its hard to find work here . I want to leave as well. Shes starting to damage my career and health. what can I do? Anything?

Years a woman I worked with year, not only

for three years a woman I worked with for one year, not only harassed me, than, but also did so for two consecutive years elsewhere. The harassment consisted out of, grabbing, stalking, high tech stalking, spreading rumors about my sexual orientation, according to her!, in locations I moved to, an some form of 'prostituting' in which I would be dangled out there as a available woman en men responding to that, would be teamed up with other women, she had already forced to a similar procedure at an earlier date. She stalked me to my native country, roamed through my house and went through my personal belongings when me and my husband were gone for the winter. and last but not least, she had the blood I donated voluntarily to the red cross, redirected to herself, because she, not on active duty, was under stress because of the war in Afghanistan.

I am a manager of a barbershop, I have a barber who recently tried claiming "sexual harassment", which ar false, the police got involved and said she has nothing to go with. Now the person is "fearful" to work with me, but when offered by myself and the owner to work at another shop she refuses.How can I/we evict her with no legal actions being used against us? We are in the state of California she is a booth renter.I've started looking into contracts with shop guidelines and having everyone sign them. Is that proper route?

I was sued by an individual that was posted on

I was sued by an individual for content that was posted on Ripoff Report site in 2009 against an acting manager in NYC. Most of the lawsuit was thrown out due to it being an "opinion" except for the "possible sexual harassment" statement. It's going to trial now on 6/8/16 but the actual report doesn't exist anymore and hasn't for over two years. Their system was hacked and that report vanished and doesn't exist online anywhere and hasn't for over two years and Ripoff Report says that it has never existed. Can this case continue for content that doesn't exist now? Can I still be sued for content that doesn't exist? Thanks!

There Doctors of Law! My name is*****

Hi there Doctors of Law! My name is***** *****, and I'm an educated Black Woman, good heart, hard worker and my handsome son {Eagle Scout - Troop 212} has said over and over, "I love my mama!" Speaking of hard work, and loyalty, in-spite all, I was sexually harassed, and sexually assaulted on my job {FBISD/ Fort Bend Independent School District} and you would think, since I proudly been serving 'Sixteen years, I would've been supported from my job. NOT!This terrible incident has left me and my son homeless... Yes we stayed in a shelter for 6 - 7 months at the FBWC/ Fort Bend Women's Center Shelter, and if it was not for this remarkable agency, I would've probably ended my life! My son became an Eagle Scout while living at FBWC shelter, and he also give praises to FBWC for genuinely supporting him! Here's a brief synopsis of what happened to me.March 17, 2014 @ Lake Olympia Middle School my co-worker {Del Shun ****** Sr.} New Coach who's a Special Aid Certified Teacher, and at that time, I was his Teacher Assistant. Well during seventh period on that particular day with other co-workers and students in the same classroom; Mr. ****** Sr., sitting at his desk opposite corner of the classroom... Forcefully Shoved my Head Downward Toward His Groin as I was leaning over to view some photos on the school desk computer that he took during ‘Spring break.I was shock, and baffled! I'm almost fifty-years old, I never in the world... would think - this could, or would happen to me! And yes, I immediately told his Fret brother, who's the Assistant Principal! And, I also wrote the sexually harassment and the sexual assault incident in print, when I got home that night on the FBISD server! Again, I'm a kind person, and so I did request for this new co-worker... Mr. ****** Sr., desperately needs immediate psychological counseling!The investigation started, and I was {confusedly} put on 'Administrative Leave with pay - which had already turned into a month! It was suggested to me that FBISD was not going to do nothing, because, prior to the incident, I had a quick chat with Mr. ****** Sr., about my wild and fun college days… NEVERTHELESS, I still should share my sexually harassment and sexual assault incident to the police. Well, I did in April of 2014, I told the Stafford police, and that's when ALL HELL broke loose! Case # ***** 00 661.Because, I shared everything about my co-worker{Mr. ****** Sr.} this predator and disrespected creep… Everything about his on-going insulting sexual behavior and comments, including when he drop his pants ALL the way to his ankles, with a bulge in his pants, and paraded around the students {boys} who some of them been sexually molested in their younger years and so now their anger and etc has landed them in the {BIC} Behavioral Inclusion Classroom.Mr. ******'s {reported} response, "Fret you know, I'm comedian and yeah I went a little-bit too far. No big deal." Regardless some kind of action had to take place, and Mr. ****** Sr., was moved to another campus, and I was brought back to 'Lake Olympia Middle School, which I was categorize as an ‘Trouble Maker by the majority of my peers at work, and my son who also attends high school in the FBISD became a target for retaliation, and they are still giving him retaliation, since, I'm on leave with no pay! While, I'm still seeking for fair justice! Because I still haven't gotten paid since 2014 of December; and FBISD is still fighting not to give me 'Workman's Comp!In-spite what the Sugarland Orthopedics Sports and Meds have written in their medical report of my ‘Cervical Vertebrae misaligned by the downward shoved on my head.May of 2015... EEOC gave me the 'Right to Suit under 'Gender Discrimination and Retaliation, and under the 'Prose Rights, I was able to file my 'Civil Law Suit against 'FBISD in July of 2015.After being in ligation for five months on March 10, 2016 the U.S. Southern District Court - Federal Judge David Hittner … Dismissed my case 'WITHOUT PREJUDICE for not {clearly} defining my 'Statement of Claim???My understanding ... My statement of claim is what EEOC gave me the 'Right to Suit. And no, I have not yet put a price tag on ALL my sufferings, because we had not gotten to that point yet. The docket shows {***** vs FBISD} Case # *****:15-cv-01693 supposed to be heard either in the month of November or December of 2016.Yet, also my research has showed my ‘Statue of Limitation {Two Year Period} has ran out from the time of the sexual assault incident which took place on March 17, 2014.Conclusion, I've research, and I've read that I have 120 days to RE-file from March 10, 2016. Please share your 'Wonderful Legal Knowledge of what is really correct. What's my right (s}? Have my ‘Statue of limitation run out from the actual sexual assault incident date? Do, I still have a chance, and if I do under what grounds, and under what section code? Pre-Thanks!
