Customer Question
Can I ask questions...

Can I ask questions about what goes on where I work? Or just tell you?

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

My name is*****: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

Full time.

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

I'm not sure how to go about this. There is harassment and discrimination. Also has been a hostile work environment. Now my vacation pay is being taken away. :-(
