My husband forced to resign over harassment. Worked over 10

My husband forced to resign over sexual harassment. Worked over 10 years with perfect record. Worked with accuser for 5 years. Many of their conversations were off color that the accuser initiated. One day it went to far, she walked in his office faced her butt to him and said how do I look in my Mimi skirt. He got up and padded her ass, she said to him you went to far, he said I thought we were just filling around, he apologize and told her it would never happen again and the filling around needed to stop. I am very upset about the actions of my husband but I can not stop thinking he was set up. I asked but we never got the copy of the complaint, he never got to get his side of the story documented. The accuser is on work release that the GM arranged that cost my husbands department $1,200.00 a month in covering her shift. My husband wanted to put her on leave of absence. The company does have a no tolerance sexual harassment policy. Over this time period my husband did voice his option on the new direction of the company that was not well received. Is there any legal action we can take. If there is I want compensation for medical coverage and salary until he finds a new job. I would also like to sue the accuser personally.

How should I go about moving up my complaint about upper

How should I go about moving up my complaint about upper management? I have been dealing with at first an insubordinate employee for a few years withou any support from my leader. Because of lack of timely action on HR part, the insubordinate employee succeeded to stay and soon after a new employee who isued to work very well with me begin to exhibit same behavior which I brought up to his attention but continued. It took almost a year to get HR involved and provide needed warming. Now I seemed to have been slowly demoted and this insubordinate employee to be given more support and more opportunities to succeed in the organization and even was told he'll be sent to leadership training. My new manager does not seem to care about his behavior with me. Has told my employees to not come to me with anything and patients/clients have been told to go to her with any complaint, not to me. I was told this manager was put over me to support me in my told but I do not see that, it's quite the opposite. Further more, I worry about my job, have not sleeping well, I have to take medication for blood pressure and I'm constantly wondering what's next. I am wondering if this has anything to do with the fact that this insubordinate employee has family influences in the organization. What options do I have to make my case heard? Thanks!

I have a question about wrongful termination, I live in Las

I have a question about wrongful termination, I live in Las Vegas Nevada and work at a local casino as a cocktail server. I was recently terminated because of accusations of being aggressive and pushing another co worker. I was the victim and they said I was the aggressor. They would not show me any proof of this (Survellance tapes). I know Nevada is a right to work state and can be terminated for any reason but I feel like I was treated unfairly and without proof and justification. Any help deciding on the next course of action would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance. Ally

I had gotten a new job last month. There were two employees

I had gotten a new job last month. There were two employees myself and one other woman. She was leaving a lot of her heavy work for me to do. When I finally said something, after weeks of this, an upper manager came in to talk to the other employee. When I arrived to work, this upper management man showed me how all the work had been completed, but it hadn't been. When I mentioned it, I was told to"Quit my bitching". Is this legal? I had a legititmate complaint. Think there may have been some favoritism in there too.I was really offended. I'm a bitch because I have high work ethics?Yipes.Just wonderingThank You,Laurie

Need guidance on dealing with bullying at work

I've been dealing with extreme bullying for a few years. This is in California. Unreasonable deadlines, managers who don't have a clue on the logistics, steps, time, issues that arise and analysis to do our jobs. I've been here 18 years, but feel there's definitely a trend to keep discrediting me. Most recently being interrogated on Monday for 1 hour 45 minutes, on why a task was not completed before my vacation. Sorry for rambling, so much more to tell but I'll stop here. I'm grateful for any guidance or options on this.

In Wisconsin, which is a fire at will state, is an employer

In Wisconsin, which is a fire at will state, is an employer breaking laws by terminating an employee when a week or so prior to being terminated, the employee informs the employer and a crew co worker that the employee is going to need to use earned paid vacation time off of work occasionally in upcoming weeks to testify in a Federal Grand Jury court case? The employer gave the reason for termination that "it just is not going to work out, and we have a lot of work coming up", never specifically saying it had to do with the court case, but performance issues. The employer said he would pay out the vacation verbally, but is now saying he will not.
