Hi. I am an Executive Director for a non-profit organization. A County Board hired our non-profit organization hired us to serve as a service provider for their Public Transportation program. In recent months, the chairperson for the County Board's Transportation Committee has made both public and private comments (comments without foundation or proof) that our Agency is run ineffectively and implied that we are incapable to providing services. Per the grant requirements, we are audit-finding free. meeting all compliance requirements, and running under budget. However, his unfounded comments regarding the Agency and its ability to manage operations have resulting in a meeting set to terminate our contractual agreement. Do we (Agency) and/or I have a slander case? This obviously affects my employment contract. If we lose this contract over his comments, this is 10% of all Agency revenue. My job would be at risk.JA: Can you tell me where the nonprofit is registered?Customer: City of Lincoln. County of Logan, State of IllinoisJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Just that this has been an ongoing issue.

I resigned from one home health on a Monday. They told me the same day that I didn't have to work my notice out. I went to work the next day Tuesday for another home health. The previous home health stayed calling my boss and the vice president of my current employer on my first day of work saying not to hire me, e mails and phone calls were made by previous employer's human resources director, administrator, marketer. I quit but they put fired on my discharge papers. They are harassing me, bad mouthing me to patients, MDs and ALF, rehab centers.

2 months ago my former manager at my old company sent an email to me. It was from her personal email to my NEW COMPANY email address. She said she was suing me for slander in civil court. She never said WHY, but my guess is because I posted an anonymous review on Glassdoor. Reading it, I'm sure she knew I was talking about her. However, 36 hours later she emailed me again and said she was withdrawing her submission in Denver County. I never responded to her emails/threats, but one of my current colleagues (who also worked with my old manager years ago) received a text message from her (a few hours before the first email was sent) asking for my work email address. My old manager has my phone number and knows how to contact me personally. So I think she was trying to discredit by way of sending this to my new employer email address. I would like to send a note to her HR dept. and request an end to the harassment. She was never held accountable for her horrible behavior as my manager, and now she's responded with unbridled vindictiveness.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No. She was bluffing, I think.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

What does" Company agrees covenants that the amounts set

What does " Company agrees covenants that the amounts set forth in Paragraphs 3 are due and owing Employee and are dischargeable only in the Bankruptcy of the Compoany" Mean in a severance agreement?JA: What state are you in? It matters because laws vary by location.Customer: FLJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No it's a severance agreement. A horribly written on where the ER is laying off the EE and states in the agreement that ER and EE mutually agree to end employment in one section and in another stated the EE resigned. Totally false or misleading statements and an unethical misstatement of material fact. In my opinion anywaysJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: that's good for now. Thanks

I have a question?? I was fired from my current place of

I have a question?? I was fired from my current place of employment for personal reasons..but there are is another employee working at the same job, that asked her mother a supervisor, a supervisor I have never delt with about why I was fired. Her mother the supervisor stated I was stealing from the company, which is not true. I only found this out because other employees are calling me asking me if this is true? The employees mother a supervisor should have never divulged information to her daughter that also works for the company, and said such things. Is their anything I can do about this, her mother that I have never been supervised by cannot slander my name, its not fair and its not true. Her daughter the employee in turn told everyone their that I was also fired for stealing. This matter was between myself, my supervisor, and the company. Please let me know.. thanks Stella Brackelmanns(###) ###-####JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NCJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Not sure.. because this just happened 06/02JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Nothing I can think of right now.

I have been accused of slandering an individual I worked

I have been accused of slandering an individual I worked for. I made a comment that I thought she was "nuts". I also made some comments relating to my opinions regarding this individual and workings of the company I was released from recently. I only made these comments to 1 individual who has relayed it to this person who now states they are seeking legal action for slander.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ColoradoJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: NOt as of yet. I was texted this AM they they were disappointed in my comments and would hand over to their CO attorney.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I think the key to this, as I understand it, is, these were my opinions and not stated as fact. Her being "nuts" is an obvious stmt of opinion, however, I may have mentioned my opinion on how some financial items were handled within and outside of the company I was let go from. These financial items may have been misconstrued as a stmt of fact.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: Will I be obtaining any further correspondence regarding this question? I need to leave soon...

Denied tenure. Previous chair of many years endorsed me,

Denied tenure. Previous chair of many years endorsed me, strong research, etc. Other top researchers did the same. New chair came in and began bullying the department. Top researcher left because of him, many others complained and he has been brought to HR many times so this is well documented. I have ~100 pages of emails recording his harassment of me. He was in charge of submitting my tenure package. I looked into appealing and the University is not even following its own Operations Manual.JA: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: NYJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: Full time.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Yes. when I met with the President to find out what happened, he told me the three key points were 1) Not enough grants even though I am one of the highest producers in the dept. 2) My teaching scores were too low, except the chair failed to mention that my TA and grad student had her best friend and roommate murdered, in front of her, by her other best friend. That semester was a disaster. 3) This is the big one: That there was an indication that I was not teaching all the material I was supposed to in my classes. That is complete slander and I can prove (well documented) what I teach in there. If that slander by him caused my tenure and thus my livelihood to be hurt, is that not liable?

Ok, so just recently I was involved in an incident where I grabbed my fellow employee in the arm and shook her. This was done of frustration and was not intentional yet was just was stressed about what was going on at the time of the situation. Seeing that it was a very busy day, Today I was to talk to my general manager and district manager to have a meeting regarding this incident. And they gave me a paper stating a written statement about what had happened that day. I refused to sign, due to the fact that this will haunt me or hurt me later in the future. Again, this was done unintentionally. What are my options if any about leaving this job without hurting me in the future. This is a part time job in the fast food industry. And I don't want this basic job to hurt me down the line?
