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 recently left my employer because they restructured my job

I recently left my employer because they restructured my job to require me to relocate to South Carolina from Florida. In addition to salary, they paid a monthly bonus that, beginning this year, is paid quarterly. I worked the through April and May 2016, and my former employer refuses to pay since I am no longer employed there. Do I have a case to sue them for unpaid bonus compensation for April and May? This is a bonus for meeting certain objectives, not a sales commission, and I did not have a contract. Thanks for your help.

I was a receptionist for a company and was fired for a conflict of interest. All I did was answer phones and make appointments for our service techs. I started dating a person from one of our vendors. I do not sell or make any decisions in the company, so how can this be a conflict of interest on my part.

In the due diligence process asset purchase agreement, my

In the due diligence process for an asset purchase agreement, my boss/owner has been given the proposed buyer false information regarding asset valuation and financial statement values. I have been the one preparing the schedules and falsifying the documents (based on his direction). Can I be held liable for presenting wrong information if after the sale, the purchasing company finds out that the numbers were false? Is this falsifying information to "seal the deal" and make the company look better, illegal, or just unethical. (i.e. this is a small privately held corporation).JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: WisconsinJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No.JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Possibly, but I wouldn't know what.

Can employer 'retaliation' be based on me complaining to a Board Member about being passed over for promotions(I was never specific about any of the protective characteristics) and the Board Member addressing my immediate supervisor to find out about my status, and my immediate supervisor removing me from the position 4 days after the board member spoke to her because I never addressed being discriminated again, just being passed over?Also, can employer 'retaliation' against me be based upon after I quoted statistics about a Board Meeting about the lack of Black male teachers in our school district, the next morning, a clerical worker told me that I did not have the support of the teachers union in the position that I applied for because a lady on the hiring committee was 'offended' by me quoting statistics from the Education Department about the lack of black male teachers in our Nation's schools, I was not given the promotion, and I never said I faced discrimination on my race, sex, gender, or any other 'protected' characteristic.
