Customer Question
My CEO has continue...

My CEO has continue to send emails whereby he has stated he hates me, etc. Tuesday of last week he physically threaten to throw me against the wall. I was in closed door with him although after sending an official email, he admitted he was only trying to diffuse the situation. Other I believe heard it, although it it a private company and only ex-employees will come forward - as they to were pushes physically by the CEO.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?

Yes, I sent my official letter by email and received response back by the CEO and not anything in writing from HR.

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

I am a full time salaried employee - as the personal assistant to the President.

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

I am not sure what is needed...but have supporting emails to show negative comments leading up.

I'll need to ask you some preliminary questions before I can give you an answer to your question. Are you in a union or do you otherwise have a contract for "just cause" (as opposed to “at will" employment which is the default employment condition)? Do you think the ceo had an ulterior motive in treating you in this way, perhaps your age, race, gender, disability or religious beliefs?
