I have been at my job years and last april my hours
I have been at my job for 15 years and last april my hours were cut unannounced. I have been working in fear and am on anxiety meds to help me deal. I have been made to feel incompeted and stupid and have heard many comments by my employer that his employees are stupid. I have had to deal with sexual harassment and am now having to sell my condo because I can afford it because of my cut hours and will need to move in with my daughter until I can get on my feet. Please help me.

My son is employed at a group home. He was accused of calling one of the male clients "gay". Long story short: my son is now under investigation for adult abuse. I'm assuming for sexual abuse. He does not even know what agency is investigating. He has been suspended without pay for 6 weeks. He has not heard anything about what is going on because he was instructed to not have contact with anyone who works there. My question is : how long can they take to investigate? Don't they (his work or Investigators have to keep him informed?) Thanks LJ

If a male co worker accuses me of sexual harassment because I supposedly put his tips in his front pocket. And my sexual orientation is that I'm gay. Do I have a right to file discrimination charges.
Good Morning, I am writing to you to ask advice regarding a
Good Morning, I am writing to you to ask advice regarding a situation that happened to me in 1979. I was a newly graduated nurse working on an Oncology floor when a certain Urologist cornered me against a wall (in a multi bed room- called a "ward"), and proceeded to put his hands and fingers where they did not belong. I was shocked beyond belief, shaking, couldn't think straight, but continued to work for the rest of the day. Back then, you kept things quiet because "this was the Doctor, you don't ever accuse the Doctor". It bothered me a lot, so I confided in an Assistant Nurse Manager, she was my mentor. She said "oh my gosh, this happened to me too". I was so relieved to find someone that believed me, nothing was done, remember, you just kept quiet. Throughout the years I would see him walking down the halls, I turned my head away in disgust and fright. One time, yes, only one time, I was driving my car down a busy street in Chicago, there he was, at a stop light right next to me. He looked at me and made an obscene gesture with his tongue and hand (I hope you can imagine). Well, now I am really frightened, not angry, but frightened. So here it is, many years later, I am still disgusted. Yesterday at work , (I work in an office now) ,I had to refer a patient to this Doctor and his son (yes, he is still practicing). I could not do it, I cannot tell ANYONE to go to this Doctor. I told my Doctor to tell him because I could not, told him it was a private matter. Other then psychological help, is there any legal recourse I can take against him. This would NEVER happen now, but back then, you "just kept quiet". Please advise, thank you, XXXXX XXXXX RN

I now find myself trying to clear my name and find a job at 55. Can you help me.
I have a very interesting question. Can a hospital via a physicianView more employment law questions
I have a very interesting question. Can a hospital via a physician director who acts with malice & without any actual cause, defame and literally 'force' another physician to undergo a "fit for duty evaluation" out of pure malice? And this physician is now being held from seeking gainful employment elsewhere because she requires her "supervisors" reference for credentialing purposes and he is the one who is behind this egregious act of malice without evidence or due process internally or otherwise. And where no real allegations exist whatsoever that would even suggest at one undergoing such an examination? There were no formal accusations, no disciplinary actions against the physician victim but only an attempt by this physicians boss to literally convince hospital administration without cause, proof, due process that she undergo such a heinous act that is egregious and wrong?Her boss became involved in an effort to "help" her in a child custody battle by initially speaking to her attorney who turns out is under investigation for serious ethical violations in her child's case and where the attorney had no authority to continue discussions independently with her boss. In fact, I am told her boss tried to get her attorney (against her knowledge or authorization) to settle the case in an effort to as he put it "kick the child to the curb". This child of hers was sexually abused by her ex spouses boyfriend which makes this case even more nauseating. Apparently, the physicians boss who is also a physician turned from ;'helping her" to making her appear incompetent or "mentally unfit" when she wrote her attorney not to have any contact or communication with her boss once she discovered what was happening in the background unbeknownst to her.I am a good friend and in school to become a paralegal and thought I would try this site to see what help I could find for her.What actions can my friend, the physician victim here, take to protect her rights and prevent harm to her career and good name?
