wallstreetfighter :

Hello and welcome. My name is Wallstreetfighter I am a Licensed practicing attorney and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today.

wallstreetfighter :

Did they harass or threaten you due to your race, gender, age, or place of birth?

wallstreetfighter :

How many employees does the company have?

JACUSTOMER-wkxzaxx2- :

over 200

wallstreetfighter :

If you feel harassed and bullied due to your race,gender, age, or other civil right,

wallstreetfighter :

that is against the law, and you can file a state discrimination case against the employer.

JACUSTOMER-wkxzaxx2- :

No. We were out drinking as friends. we are the same race. I believe that they may be jealous of me for some reason.

wallstreetfighter :

If you were threatened with violence, you should contact the police, and file a claim,

JACUSTOMER-wkxzaxx2- :

If she said she wants to " beat my ass" i should call the police?

wallstreetfighter :

if you feel she intended to,

wallstreetfighter :

yes,

wallstreetfighter :

If you do not feel it was real, it would not rise to the level of a criminal threat,

JACUSTOMER-wkxzaxx2- :

ok. Thank you

wallstreetfighter :

However, you should send a letter to your HR or employer

wallstreetfighter :

and advise them of the incident, and that you feel threatened by her actions,

wallstreetfighter :

and you wish they will speak to her about the matter, or you will have no other option but to file a criminal complaint.

wallstreetfighter :

If the employer fails to act,

wallstreetfighter :

and you are injured by her,

wallstreetfighter :

you may have a valid lawsuit against the employer.

wallstreetfighter :

If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to ask.

wallstreetfighter :

If satisfied please provide us with positive feedback,

wallstreetfighter :

thank you
