I work as a government contractor in Virginia. There were a series of incidents at work that got a group of us counseled and spoken to...but then it later came out that we were actually innocent of what we were counseled for. I asked for a written confirmation for the record so that this incident couldn't be held against me in the future...and in response I was pulled aside and told to man up, whether I had a male genitals, and that if I dared to mention the words HR that I would be sent home without pay or PTO.Is there a legal case that can be made given that this was a verbal threat, that my workplace rights were violated? I have one witness who was in the room when it was said.

I accidentally hit the nozzle on a gas pump. I happen to work for the station I was at. I was not working at the time of the accident I was now a customer. There was an employee outside at the time and saw what happened. I pulled my car away from the pump and there was some damage to the nozzle and my car. The employee went in the store to get a out of order wrap for the nozzle. When he came back out I said well ok I'm gonna head out and he said ok. The next day my dad and myself went in to talk to the manager and let them know I would pay for the damage. I was told that there was no need for a police report since I worked there. The next day I was scheduled to work. I went in was asked to come to the back room and sign a statement which I did and was terminated right there. They said it was because I did not go into the store and report it. I'm sixteen and figured the employee outside knew I did it and I thought that was all that was needed. The employee's statement was all they took they did not take my statement.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MnJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: It is at will.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Why I wasn't warned before I came to work when I had been in the store to speak to management two times with my dad too and no warning was given that I could be fired and why did they take the statement from the other employee but not mine.Do I have any rights?

This is in reference to work place discrimination at my

This is in reference to work place discrimination at my Department. It is very disheartening, discouraging and un professional; the events that have taken place in discriminating against me. I moved from New York City to this city, in hopes to have a fruitful 25 year career. I have spent several weeks in the post academy, where I felt equal, and accepted by the police department. After passing the post academy, and entering the Field Training program (FTO), I was awaken by the concentration of my Origin(being from NY), views on specific sport teams(having an issue with a co worker because I am a Yankees Fan), and experience by my peers(I worked in NY and in FL its a more "gentle policeng" then what I am probly use to). Events that took place in the Field Training program, took place with disregard to my side of the story by supervisors. This led to a memorandum of counseling for myself and a slap on the wrist to another. In addition, Hearsay, led to the supervisor questioning me about what he believed, about me investigating him. After successfully passing the FTO program, I was assigned to a Squad were I felt welcomed. Although, it was disclosed to me by a fellow peer, a "heads up" was given about me, in lieu of the FTO program of me keeping logs of my FTO's. After spending a month on the squad, I was transferred to a supervisor, who disciplined me in the FTO program, who did not take my concerns serious, and who felt I investigated him. This led to separation among squad members, the feeling of un acceptance by the squad, discipline, hostile work environment, and given un wanted assignments because of my payroll number. My current Sgt. has expressed extra scrutiny because I found out he was under investigation at work for watching porn on his work computer on and off duty. He has disciplined me for issues that could have been just verbal counseling and instead he gave me a write up. Since this question has a word limit, I cannot go in much detail.

I was fired recently and want to find out if I can sue.

I was fired recently and want to find out if I can sue. First of all I have a medical condition that causes short term memory loss and my medication I take it clouds my ability to think straight, My employer for 18yrs in June of this year wanted to suspend me, and the company manager brought up my health conditions and said I should get my health problems taken care of. I have been under treatment for 3yrs and my physician has been adjusting my medications. I was told to take the time off or be fired. I was given a day off to think about it. i texed the office manager back and see they wouuld have to fire me. Then I received a text from the manager we never wanted to fire me and I could come back and work elsewhere in my office and wouldn't be In charge of anything. In 18yr I had never been written up. The day I came back I was told I had to sign two incident reports or I couldn't come back. I signed because I needed employment. Then I was fired today for a possible hippa violation. I posted a picture of a patient's father and me on facebook. I said he was a great person and I have been taking care of his son since his birth. I've already been told that this was not a violation. Could I get some advice?
