Customer reply replied 7 months ago
I have been working for my employer for approximately 2 years. I am a branch manager of a staffing agency in Hacienda Heights. Approximately 3 months ago, I received a write up regarding my work performance declining. I disagree with that write up completely because I have not only helped the company grow, I haveworked several hours before and after my shift to make sure everything is done. I believe I am being harassed because the owner of the company had a cousin of hers working at my branch as a front desk receptionist who lacked the skills necessary to perform her duties and had a terrible work ethic. I brought the issue up to upper management and they favored her to the point to where I received the initial write up about my "poor work ethic". Since then I have been experiencing harassment from the owner of the company in the form of harassing emails, yelling at me over the phone and contacts me via personal social media to ask questions about work. Last week I received a second write up stating my work ethic is lacking, bad attendance (I have missed 3 days last month because my 1 year old was sick), and having an attitude. The write up states it is my "final warning" which has caused me to have severe anxiety and panic attacks because I know how this company works and they tend to start a paper trail before terminating somebody. I believe I am being targeted and harassed and want to know how to start a workers comp claim for stress.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
