Customer reply replied 7 months ago
The issue is that I have been working for this company call CertainTeed for six months now and my boss is extremely angry all the time. I am having a hard time performing or doing my job. I reached to her boss but he is super supportive of her and he isn't willing to do anything to improve our relationship. I am just getting ready to leave the company but I want to know if i have any legal ground to take any action against the company
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
Is it possible for us to talk later?
Employment Lawyer: DamienJD, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Yes. We can chat later on the phone if you want to do so.

Any legal action would have to be based on discrimination or harassment due to race, sex, disability, ethnic origin, etc or based on retaliation. You would have to show that you are being treated differently than other employees.

Another legal action could occur if you had an employment contract and the company is breaching it.

We can discuss more if you want to do so.
