Customer Question
My manager has written me...
My manager has written me up because I was not 100% error free in my work. Two days later she was heard telling someone else they "only have to do their best". This is just one of the things she has bullied me with and I want to know if it is legal for her to do that?

I hope this message finds you well, present circumstances excluded. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of employment law experience. It is a pleasure to assist you today. It is permissible, believe or not, for an employer to act in this disgusting way - unless the reason for the treatment of you is predicated on discrimination. The employer cannot treat you or any other employee this way based on your age, race, gender or disability. If you believe this treatment is rooted in discrimination, then you have legal protection and can file a complaint with the EEOC for discrimination. You are protected by the law from retaliation if you file an EEOC complaint. The EEOC will look into the matter and if they find merit, will allow you to sue in federal court for damages. To win though, you must be able to show that this is taking place because of discrimination based on an area protected in the law: race, gender, age or disability. Otherwise, this is unethical, but not illegal and there is nothing you can do. Let me know if you have any other questions. Please also rate my answer positively. Best wishes going forward!

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.
