Thank you for contacting JA. Who did you file the charges with? An agency or the HR dept.? How long have you worked at this company? Do you work directly with the CEO?

HI Tina,

currently i went up and filed it with the CFO who is HR at the company. he also spoke with the ceo and conversated with her.

I have been working in the company for 2year 11 months. I currently do not report directly to the ceo i report to a VP

Lawyer: Tina, Lawyer replied 8 years ago

I see. If you do not have to come into direct contact with the CEO, then your benefits could be denied if you quit your job. A voluntary termination generally prevents you from collecting benefits if there is a reasonable alternative. I would request that you be reassigned or otherwise accommodated so you do not have to come into contact with the CEO.

 

In addition, if the employer does not take action promptly, within a few days to a week, then file a complaint with the EEOC. Only then are you clearly protected from retaliation for filing the complaint. Go to eeoc.gov. They can investigate, mediate, or issue you a right to sue letter.

 

They can also provide you with attorney referrals Look for ones who take contingency fee cases.

 

 

Please let me know if you need clarification.

Best regards XXXXX XXXXX

Tina

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
