I work for a goverment agency. An employee recently reported

I work for a goverment agency. An employee recently reported an obscene conversation he had with another employee that was about me. He notified HR and they advised him that they needed to submit the complaint through me. I am the supervisor of both employees. I told HR that I felt very uncomfortable with the situation and had previously felt disrespected by the employee making the comments about me. The complaint was sent to HR on 1/13. To my knowledge no investigation via interviews with other employees was conducted and the employee who made the remarks was not removed from my department. I distanced myself from that employee only communicating with him when professionally necessary. As recent as yesterday I was called into my bosses office and was advised that I was being counseledJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: ohioJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: the first bullet point of the disciplinary noted that I had failed to follow a directive from our COO as it related to a project presentation because I did not involve the employee whom had made these remarks about me. No consideration was taken in that the project directive was given to me on a thursday. I forwarded the directive to said employee he advised he would provide input after he had time to collect his thoughts and drive the properties. The weekend came with no feedback from him and then he called in sick MOnday and Tuesday. Finally got the info to me Tuesday morning and our project was due Wednesday morningJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: lots of stuff I just need to know if I have any legal basis

On February 17th 2017 at 10am I was told by Lonza HR that I had made allegations which they investigated and that they were found not to be true therefore I was being terminated. I received nothing in writing that stated explicitly what allegation I had made and what part wasn't true. I had made several allegations involving harassment/ unwanted advanced to the same HR woman that terminated me. I believe this same woman also discriminated against me possibly because I caused too many problems for her or she was jealous. My Boss was not there for the termination meeting and has not returned any of my phone calls to clarify. Do you think I have a case for wrongful termination?JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: GeorgiaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: full time and I had just received a good performance review the week before.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I guess not
