Hi, how are you?
I'm well, thank you. My name is Sean and I am an attorney, I am happy to assist
what concerns regarding retaliation with your employer do you have that I can help you with?
Of course, can you tell me an overview about what has happened?
Do you feel this occurred due to your age, race, sex, disability, national origin, religion, or genetic information?
Just from the information you have provided you have a claim for unsafe working conditions and retaliation. You can also file battery charges against the individual who spit on you
Is there a policy against what you were terminated for? OR a policy to protect your from harassment and battery from guests?
Potentially yes, he could state this was a motive
If your company has a policy against allowing guests to insult/abuse staff, you can assert a claim for breach of contract against them as well
No, that will not affect your case with EEOC, the EEOC will be only looking at the discrimination. The battery charges can be used during the investigation stage to show how extreme the treatment was
Are there cameras? During the EEOC process you can make it known there were cameras if so and the EEOC can ask for images from the company
You can still include the witnesses and their names. Due to the relationship of one with the individual who spit on you, you will have solid evidence as to why their statements are prejudice. As well as from your manager. Your battery charge will help you here
perfect, then you can include in your wrongful termination breach of contract
My pleasure and best of luck. If you have any other questions or concerns, do not hesitate to ask. If you could please accept my response and leave a 5 star rating I would greatly appreciate it :)
