Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I resigned due to the environment created by the Director changing her mind according to her emotions creating a very unprofessional and conflicting working environment. I took ill due to working so many hours and having to be on call basically everyday, which was to be a rotating situation but because of such high it was left to me; I carried a backup phone to the on-call when I wasn't assigned the on-call; situation was very frustrating due to overhearing Director discussing my salary with others and creating conflicting situations such as telling employees they are to only take direction from her but yet she would tell me that I am their supervisor...please help!
Lawyer: INFOLAWYER, Attorney replied 8 years ago
You would only qualify if forced to leave due to illegal conduct at place of employment, sexual harassment or discrimination which would amount to constructive termination or if your hours or pay were severely cut.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
