Customer Question
My daughter who worked...

My daughter who worked for special needs facility for children in Ohio was fired from her job recently. She is now in hospital care for the trauma this caused her. She was accused of watching 1 or 2 other ladies dressing a youngster and just loitering around the locker room. Daughter claim she had to exit the same hot tube as the child because daughter has a defibrillator. attached to her heart and cannot be in the hot tub too long. Principal told daughter that she had no choice but to fire her because 3 women collaborated on the claim to get Daughter fired. What recourse can we seek?

Lawyer's Assistant: Was the termination discussed with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

Not to my knowledge. I only know the "principal" fired her reluctantly.

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the workplace "at will" or union? Is the job hourly or salaried?

Sorry I do not know. I do not think it is union.

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

Since I cannot talk to my daughter at this moment due to being admitted to hospital, just want to know how and if to proceed to fight this for fairness.

I understand. Having never accessed ACLU before I have no idea on precess or cost etc.
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Do you feel like they did this intentionally to cause her trauma?

Please just give me at least a rough idea of process and cost without incurring more expense at this moment.
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

I'm sorry for the confusion. It's $5 to post your question, another $37 approximately for your written interaction with me and there's an option for a $59 phone call. That's optional though and you don't have to take it. The normal cost is about $42, far less than seeing an attorney face to face. Would you like to continue in writing?

Probably be better for me to try to contact my daughter in Ohio hospital before I commit to anything involving more at this time.
Employment Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Ok, no problem. Come back any time!
