I am sorry to hear this.

Were you treated this way while at work?

Did you resign or were you dismissed?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
i was dismissed about 3-4 months ago because someone said in a review that the mangement is pathetic and manager/owner got so angry seeing the review and released all his frustration on me and blamed everything on me and fired me and hired his niece the incident of harrassing me happend avour 2 days ago because when i was leaving i told him if you are going to treat your employees this restro never gonna work out and thats whats happening now and thats why ho got frustrated and started cursing at me about 2 days ago(sunday night) he even cam outside my house 3 times just to beat me up
police is not helping me and just telling me to ignore but this is serious issue he knows everyone in this town that is why nobody is helping me

Did he call you names at work?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Nope at work he was never there everthing happend after i got dismissed
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Then there is nothing to sue him for.

You cannot sue someone for being disgusting.

If he ever does physically harm you then call 911 and if he comes to your house and is threatening call 911 then too.

But you cannot sue someone who calls you names and that is all.

I am sorry about that but you do need the right answer of course so you aren't hurt further.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
