Hello, I was bullied and mobbed in my previous job for several years and resigned a few months ago. My two supervisors participated and condoned and encouraged other staff to participate. Both supervisors told me they would write letters of recommendation for me, burt I have not received them. I need, for my psychological well-being and health, to avoid contact with them as much as possible. I do not want to go back into the vuolding of my prior employers because I have severe anxiety, and panic attacks that are triggered by anything associated with them, especially the place where I was abused. IDoyou have any advice for me as to how I can obtain or request the letters wth as little personal contact from me or with them as possible? I was wondering if an attorney could write a letter, or perhaps you could offer suggestions as to how I can request the letters and ensure that they provide them. I also am concerned about the possibilitynthey may defame me to future potential employers. Is there anything I can do to protect my legitimate interests? I don't want to be held hostage by two previous supervisors who already have shown they are untrustworthy toward me. I live in the USA. I hope you can assist me. Many, many thanks.
JA: What confuses you?
Customer: Please see my message above. Are you able to see it? Thanks.
JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And how long has this been going on? No. I'm the Lawyer's Assistant. Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: I misspelled "building" as "vulding". My apologies. I was unable to see the text of my comment as it is covered up by an image on my tablet.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: This is in West Virginia. The bullying
started 12 years ago, soon after I was hired. My immediate supervisor was the only one involved. I tried resolving it with her one-on-one in conversations on different occasions. When it became clear that nothing had changed and it simply continued/escalated, I spoke privately with someone in a superipr administrative position over her. This was someone not in the immediate buliding of my then-employer. After that, she recruited more people to bullly me and it brcame mobbing. I had to have countless sessions of counseling and therapy to cope with the abuse. I am palnning to relocate to anoyther state to assist my elderly mother, but I eant to be sure they will not be able harm my employment prospects. They have ostracized me in my immmediate community. I am worried they will blackball me in my profession or or find a way to ruin my attempts to secure employment in North Carolina. Esssentially, it is a kind of stalking, in my opinion.
