So this person which is my cousins wife is in charge of Payroll and Human Resources for this business of our. The problem with her, she is highly jealous of me. And finding ways to put me when it comes money and getting a second job. I'm so mad and fraustated that I got accepted to this job that she found a way to end up firing me. Which means a conflict of interest between us. How do I prevent her from doing this to me?

The truth is I don't want this position for the rest of my life the one that I work for my cousin. Plus I don't like the policy of this business. Also this disability I need better health insurance rate. They pay the cheapest rate. The PTO doesn't doesn't go by how many years you have worked. It's just 4 hours every two weeks. I have works for them almost 5 years. I want to get the job at the casino that will have a job growth without going to college. I can't go and can't afford. Please give me your best advice cause I'm so sick of this!! It's like dealing with a high school bully.

Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

I am a DIFFERENT CONTRIBUTOR, as it seems you have asked for another expert.

Under the law, absent you having some written contract for a period of time, you are an at will employee. It is up to you if you want to quit and go to another employer. This employer cannot force you to remain there, so we do not quite understand what you are asking us.

If you choose to quit to go elsewhere, you can do so and your cousin and nobody else can force you to stay with this job. You are free to quit once you find another job, so before you leave, arrange a new job as you said you wanted then you can quit this one.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.
