I have a boss who (was just promoted to our manager - Merrill

I have a boss who (was just promoted to our manager - Merrill Lynch office), when in a bad mood, becomes rude and nasty to me. He has embarrassed me in our office by being demanding and talking in a disrespectful manner. I am 10 years older and managed a group of 50 at one time in my career. I know that the tone he uses with me (which others have heard) is a form of abuse. Last Friday he told me (after 10 years of working together) that he could no longer work with me because while he was talking to me disrespectfully XXXXX XXXXX office door closed I abruptly opened the door he got mad and asked what I was doing and I told him I wanted the rest of the office to hear how he was talking to me. At that point he told me that "he wanted to talk and wanted me to just listen" and gave me orders re a project and abruptly dismissed me. Do I have any thing to be concerned about with this behavior? This isn't the first time he has talked horrible to me in front of others and ignored me for a couple of weeks at a time.

I am a salaried employee who works in a small office with no door for privacy. For 3 years I have been doing the bulk of my phone calls away from the office, in my car (on bluetooth) or at home. Our COO recently expressed concern that this was a legal issue for me to be driving while talking on the phone for work related activities. Is this a real legal issue?

My partner and me are operating a Small Group Home and have

Hello, my partner and me are operating a Small Group Home and have Adult Foster Care license. We had a contract with Area Agency on Aging 1B to provide AFC services for Medicaid Waiver participants. About a month ago we were placed on probation for 60 days. We reviewed Area Agency's policy on Probations and found that the Agency did not follow proper procedure. We also feel that we were placed on probation for the wrong and discriminatory reasons. We did not get an appeal form with the letter informing us about probation, but replied via e-mail, which was left unanswered. Yesterday we received a notice of termination of the contract, without reason, while we are still during the probation period (this is "at will" contract) but in Policies it is said that the termination notice will state the reason for termination and include an appeal form. We requested an appeal form via e-mail. We would like the decision about termination and probation to be reversed, what would be our best course of actions?

I recently resigned from a job I held for 10+ years. The

I recently resigned from a job I held for 10+ years. The management changed about 4 years ago, thus creating a terrible work environment. The HR Director with 20+ years at the company resigned once that management came aboard. She was replaced with some that was "handpicked" by CEO and has no HR experience whatsoever.I recently filed a NJ Unemployment claim and needless to say they placed me in "pended" status. I did have the initial phone screening and the examiner stated that she has to speak with the company. Bottom line is I resigned due to constant harassment by CEO during work and off hours. I've report my concerns to HR, but the response was that nothing could be done. I actually still have emails & texts saved to back-up my allegations.Can anything be done? I explained to the examiner that the average person does not resign from a $135K job unless something is drastically wrong.
