I feel I was mistreated at work by my employer. some

Customer Question
Hi I feel...

Hi I feel I was mistreated at work by my employer. some situations at work ended in him yelling, swearing, embarrassing, and belittling me. in feb a situation lead to him suggesting a short term leave. He promised my position would be there when I was able to return and said he would pay my benefits for me till then also. My doctor placed me on stress leave caused from the work place. A week later I was told to never come on the property again or would face trespassing charges by the same person who made the promises and owns the company. He said this to me because of a drug situation that had arose during that week. he did not offer me any drug treatment or help. I would like to know where I should go from here.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you discussed this with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

No hr at our work and cant afford a lawyer at this time

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you an "at will" employee? Do you belong to a union?

I am sorry to hear this.

There may be a typo. Did you mean to say "no" union?
