My fiancé and I live at and manage a large independently

My fiancé and I live at and manage a large independently owned hotel for over two years. He was the General Manager and I was the Assistant General Manager. During the last couple months things were not going great with our personal relationship and I felt like the General Manager was deliberatly singling me out for the smallest things, he was trying to push me to quit my job. I sent him emails letting him know I wanted to setup a meeting with our owner or the HR manager so we could figure out how to make this work so that one of us wouldn't have to quit. I told him via email several times that even tho I felt he was harassing me and discriminating against me that I could put our personal differences aside and maintain a healthy working relationship because I enjoyed my job and wanted to continue working there even after we ended our relationship. The owner has always been very happy with my work ethic and performance. There have been numerous occasions he where he acknowledges my performance to the other managers, which brings me to my point. About two weeks ago the owner comes into town and asks to speak with me, he asked me a couple questions about work and I answered them, he then told me he was giving me a 30 day paid vacation and he would like me to move out of the hotel within 6 days. I asked him what I was suppose to do after the 30 days was over and he said I should be looking for another job. At that point I knew he was firing me but I couldn't get an exact reason and if it's because I wanted to end the personal relationship with my fiancé, the General Manager then why was I the only one that got fired and had to move out of the hotel, it just doesn't seem like that could be legal. I have asked for my seperation papers several times and still have not received it. I plan on trying to file for unemployment but they told me they need the seperation papers to show reason for termination before I can file for unemployment. Does my employer have to provide me with my seperation papers? Should they be responsible for paying me my normal salary since I haven't been able to file for unemployment because Athey will not give me my seperation papers? I just don't think this is fair

My sister will be at her current job 1 year in October. She was diagnosed with Colon cancer within the past 3 months and is undergoing Chemo. Her boss has always been abusive but his abuse has ramped up since her treatment started and is threatening termination, unjustifiably so.This is a horrible situation for her to be in. She has not used any time except what was accrued for her surgery and chemo treatments. She is petrified of being fired and will not be able to continue her cancer treatment if she is. Please help me to understand her rights and what she should do to protect herself. Thanks. She works in PA.

I am using made up names---I own a dental practice in

I am using made up names---I own a dental practice in Denver: Here is what happened-About 3 years ago we had what we call our yearly planning meeting-During the meeting each member of the office has their own paper bag and each person puts a note in everybody's bag something good about that person. During that meeting there was alot of humorous banter and that is the best that I can remember. Well, I put a note in Susie's bag about Mary that said totally in jest and trying to be funny, "That Mary is a slut don't you think?" Susie and Mary are sister in laws and good friends. I totally do not believe it to be true, but thought I was being funny because of the banter that was going on. Well, Susie and I had a laugh about it at the time when she read my note. Well, I saved the note as I had saved all notes from those kinds of things. Well, a week ago, there was a funny incident that reminded me that I had put that note in my pocket to show Susie and laugh about it. Mary and a couple staff members were there and I showed it to Mary and a couple staff members just trying to be funny. My ONLY intent was to be funny. I totally did not believe what the note said. Mary called me that night and was livid. I understand that what i did was wrong and told Mary that and continued to be apologetic and remorseful. I continued to explain that I did it in what I thought was all in fun. The apology's didn't matter. ( I happen to know that what I thought was funny rekindled some old wounds that Mary had from her past) Again, I know I was wrong and take responsibility for it. So I'm not done---I am retiring at the end of Sept after 42 years and am an employee (actually an independant contractor for tax purposes) for the new owner who has been in the practice for 14 years. The new owner wants me to leave the practice after (retire early) this week. The new owner (Pete) consulted his lawyer and the attorney thought I should be asked to leave, because of some kind of exposure? This is the first of any kind of incident that I have had like this in 42 years . I feel like no process has been followed. I don't want to leave; I want to see if Pete can see this from any different light and keep me. I am not interested in pursuing any wrongful termination. I would only want to stay only if this could be worked out. Mary is on vacation this week and is the kind of person that wouldn't even want to be in the same room with me at this point. It seems like a discussion with all parties involved should at least happen

Hey. I think I have a good suit against my company. I just got fired from a trucking job. I also have an excellent constitutional suit worthy of the SCOTUS, but that takes a long time and doesn't pay any money. So what I need to know is the nuts and bolts of how to file a lawsuit against my company. They have a terminal near the Atlanta airport, a home base in Morris, IL, and corporate offices in Louisville, KY. I could file in Atlanta, right? I'm going pro se, at least at first. If it doesn't settle quickly I'll hand it off to a lawyer for a cut.
