I was promised a job that I ended up getting passed over for

I was promised a job that I ended up getting passed over for by someone less qualified than myself. I confronted my supervisor because she had been planning to put me in it since last year. I was devastated. Since, I confronted her about the broken promise and advancing others less qualified, she has retaliated and created what I would call a hostile working environment. I am miserable. I am being forced out. Do I have any rights? I work in a school system as a behavior consultant. My boss is the director of special ed. She refers to other employees as "f**ktards", "idiots" and threatens to put people back in the classroom all the time. I am frightened. I need my job.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TennesseeJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I am not sure. I am full time, tenured, have been in education for more than 15 years. I have impeccable evaluations and always have dating back to the first year I became an educator.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: She threatens...calls me on my personal cell phone, screams, yells, curses at me. She discusses me throughout the district in a disparaging way. I feel she is ruing my reputation.

I was denied employment due to a report from a previous

I was denied employment due to a report from a previous employer. I am a school bus driver and have been for 23 years. A previous employer stated to my current employer that I abused and talked bad to students and that is why I was fired. They never fired me they just did not renew my contract after the school year was over. Further they never even informed me of any allegations of abuse or bad language to any students. Never were the authorities brought in on any suspicion if they did suspect anything. So I never even knew anything about them accusing or suspecting any abuse either physically or verbally. Accusing school is Imagine School in Coolidge and the present school where I was working before they got this report is ************** which is on the ************ Reservation.
