We are Self-Employed and have an employee in who is an

We are Self-Employed and have an employee in who is an Officer in our Company in NC and she has been charged with Domestic Violence as as well as Having a Protective Order produced by her soon to be former husband. We are losing lots of hours and Production due to this situation because of constant appointments and lack of focus. I also feel that we could possibly be setting a precedence to other employees thinking that they may be allowed to commit the same crime and remain employed. This person is also a Family Member which makes the situation more difficult. However, my question is: Is it Legal for us to cut the hours in half due to circumstances that I WOULD NOT want to tolerate from another employee? She is also in the middle of a nasty Divorce which compounds the lack of focus and production and others are having to take on parts of her duties.

I want to know if what my former employer is doing

I want to know if what my former employer is doing constitutes harassment.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: OhioJA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Please give me a bit more information, so we can help you best.Customer: Last November, I switched jobs. I gave notice to my manager when the start date for my new job was given to me. About forty-five minutes after giving notice, the owner texted me, telling me how I should have told them I was job hunting and how it limits how long I can train new people. I didn't respond to the text, and things died down before they started. I finished out my old job and was at my new job for about a month and a half (early January) when, while working, the owner of my old job came in and told me I needed to keep my mouth shut about how I feel she runs her business. When I told her the only person I ever said anything to about my old job was my mom in a private conversation, she didn't say anything and then walked out. Flash forward to last week. I have been having health problems that started shortly after I started my current job. At my old job I was working over fifty hours a week, seven days a week for several weeks at a time and got rundown. I got bad news from my doctor last week and made a post on Facebook that read "Wow, numbers are down again. I never had this much trouble before. I wonder if me being rundown last year at work has anything to do with this." The owner of my old job, who I blocked on Facebook by the way, contacted me from another person's profile to tell me my post was libelous and I should take it down. To save a major headache, I took the post down. I haven't heard from her since, but I just want to know if I can do anything.JA: Is there anything else the Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: No. I didn't save my Facebook post, but I can access what she sent me and print it off if need beJA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now.

I'm a nurse, I was verbally & almost physically abused by a co-worker(another co-worker restrained the person before they made actual contact) in my hospital. I reported these things to my immediate supervisor who did nothing. I then reported the events & my supervisor's response to her supervisor. My immediate supervisor became very upset with me & told me 'this isn't over'. After about a week she brought me to HR & I was given the choice to quit or be fired. I feel this was retaliation for following company policy r/t workplace violence- I really need help!
