My year end review at my work place is meant to be anonymous. At my yearend interview 2016/17 I was given the wrong paperwork and I saw what everyone wrote about me as their name was posted by their comments. I had a particularly damaging review from a superior colleageue but it was removed from my yearend as HR believed it was unfounded. My issue is that my immideiate boss read the damaging review and as the colleague reviewing me happens to be the assistant to one of the heads of the company. I was recently be removed from my position at the company as assistant to a senior member to the floating pool with no permanent position. I believe my current situation although not fired is because my executive read the unfiltered review the one that shows damaging comments about me. I also feel that after fourteen years at the company I have no choice but to leave the company as my reputation is now damaged and after my boss releasing me from my position with him after six years with no explanation. People at the company are wondering why he released me and I feel that they think I did something wrong that caused him to let me go when in fact I am an innocent employee that was victimized by a discruntl and jealous employee.

Do I have a legal case against my my company
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 6 months ago

I've gone over what you wrote and, frankly, that's just terrible. If you're going to leave your company you could at least try to negotiate a good severance package. Otherwise, you could consider filing suit for what amounts to a hostile work environment.

Because she is a superior employee could her unfounded review be classed as harassment?
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 6 months ago

No, it's not likely to be considered harassment - since you were actually never meant to know about it But you can argue that it's defamatory.

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.

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.
