Supervisor has over 5 years and at various times treated me

Supervisor has over 5 years and at various times treated me like a servant. I am a grants administrator for a school system and work with a grant. First day of work, no place to work and had to clean and set it up, she then went on vacation and she asked me to unpack her office and put things away. Moved to another office and she goes on vacation again and asks me to unpack k and put her things away. Then she informs me that she has a job for me that I am not going to like and brings in a bowl and rags and tells me to clean out the staff refrigerator. She has a tremor and she. Her husband leaves first I am expected to put on her jewelry to include earrings. She calls me or texts me and tells me to order her lunch. Recently I questioned what happened to a pay raise that she told me i was going to get when she informed me it was because I falsified my time card and she knew it. I said you signed it why would you do that if you thought I lied. She kept going on and o. About how I falsified my time card and I asked her if she was called me a liar and she said I falsified these payroll records. The next day she walked in and said she made an appointment with HR. For what I ask, she says if I have a problem with my pay I need to go there. I go, curious about the appt., The HR person has no idea why I am there. She suggested I speak to the Superintendent which was a huge mistake. He says my job should have been advertised and I should neved have been allowed to work from home, no wonder she questioned it. I felt quietly threatened. I am in a tourist town, jobs that pay more than minimum are hard to come by. Boss knows this and takes advantage. School systems are odd ducks, mostly contracted work and no place to air a grievance,, can't sleep am sick every day, boss acts like she has done nothing wrong.JA: OK. To minimize me, please click the down arrow at the top right corner of this box.Customer: Hello?JA: Hello. What seems to be the problem?Customer: I sent itJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MissouriJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No, considering harassment filingJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Supervisor is well liked, husband was President of School Board, only the people who work for her know how she really is. She is a grant writer for the school and a good one which makes her seemingly untouchable.

I have been yelled at by my district mgr. twice; What do want me to do fire everyone and start over I will if I have too. Been texted by current mgr. that she wanted to change my schedule from opening to close.in a 24 hr. notice. This schedule been up for over a week. I said I had plans not fair. Her response was, if you don't you will lose these hours which was bad enough and in a different texted if you're not happy you can always transfer. What's funny 2 days before this the district mgr. wanted to transfer me and she told him I like Bill and he is an asset to the store. Last is when I came into work yesterday I was told that the district mgr. told her that you have no asst. mgrs. in this store. Very hurt full since I have been there 2 years as a assistant mgr. and then added I need to step it up if I want to say in the store .I am 60 years old and never been talk to like this in my life. All these actions and there's more have witnesses. I think it's a form of harassment.

Been a Manager I am know cry baby I am not on social security and have been trying to get out for over a year. Fulltime jobs are far and in between.

I work Federal agency and feel as if being harassed by

I work for a Federal agency and feel as if being harassed by supervisor and administration. In 2003 I was injured and it was the fault of the agency due to lack of neglected upkeep. By 2011 I was almost not able to walk and by 2012 had an joint replacement implant in my foot. The surgery and physical therapy was covered by OWCP. Within a couple of years of recovery I was talked to by my supervisor about age and retirement issues and then HR and supervisor pressed me to get a letter of accommodation while I was still attempting to deal with other medical issues caused by the injury involving my gait and hip issues and was wanting to wait till the physician completed his evaluation, they did not wait so I went to the surgeon and she wrote the letter that the agency needed. Then my employment was threaten, if I cannot do my job then... In the last 8 months with more physical therapy I was able to correct the medical issues and am able to do my job. However, now they are bringing up work place harassment issues on things that I have not done and are investigating me, saying these things I said or did from years ago, which I did not do. I feel that they are wanting to find a way to get rid of me although in 16 years only had one poor review and that was done during the time I was recovering from the injury. So is there anything I can do or just wait for the investigation to come back without any results or is this harassment in the workplace of some kind.

I hope I'm asking this right. I filed complaints against two

I hope I'm asking this right.I filed complaints against two different companies for the same violations (workplace harassment). Both companies had supervisors that harassed me because I reported employees that made racist statements. I was issued right to sue letters from EEOC. Are these two companies, each, responsible or should they be dealt with individually?
