I am experiencing a harassment and bullying in my work place. M y site manager came to the staff room where I took my lunch break and instructed me to change one resident who had a bowel movement. I tried to explain that she stopped me yelling "I don't care "I may ask in your good office if I have the right to file a case to this manager.Praying and hoping that your office will be able to help me . Hope to hear you soon

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I'm in Edmonton Alberta working in a long term facility as healthcare aide

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

We have a union and had a permanent pastime with.75 fte

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I was on paid leave and for investigation but due the stress that I have I went to the doctor and got a sick note for 2 weeks so the investigation was freeze.

I am sorry to hear this.

The lawyers on this site cannot act for you.

I can explain the law if that will help.

This is not an office. We are not a law firm. The is a website that has lawyers that can provide legal information.

Let me know if that will help.
