I am an administrative assistant who has been doing a good job as evidenced by reviews and bonuses. My boss decided he wanted a paralegal to help him but has asked me to "cross train" and show her everything I do. In other words, I'm being replaced without being told I'm being replaced. I've asked the administrative supervisor what out respective roles and responsibilities are, and told her my concern about being replaced. She said she just likes to see "ingredients" stew and see what happens. I'm not an ingredient, I'm a human being. Is it legal for this to be asked of me. Is it legal for them to be this manipulative rather than honest and up front? It's causing me a great deal of worry. It's put me in the emergency room with gastitis and my doctor has increased medication for depression.
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: San Francisco, California. thanks
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will
," union, full time or part time?
Customer: Full time and at will.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Only that I work for a construction company. The roles filled by the men are clearly defined. I believe it is discriminatory to treat the women office workers differently and just "let ingredients stew." The stewing is making my mentally and physically ill.
