Dear Customer,

Thank You for posting your employment law question today. I'm attorney bill assisting you today. Discrimination based upon race, gender, religion, age , disability or ethnicity is illegal, including harassment based on any of these.

Other forms of harassment in the workplace may also be actionable.

Have you taken this up with your supervisor or made a complaint ?

What are the specifics of the harassment and do you work for a private or State employer ?

Thanks

Attorney Bill

Hi Bill,
I am on H1B Visa working for Private Organization . I was made to work for 17 hours a day for 7 days at a stretch , which affected my health . Moreover there were few instances of verbal abuse before. I raised the issue with my supervisor and wanted change in my current assignment , who commented that "I looked healthy" and working for long hours is common in IT . I felt more weak and dizzy after hearing this. I went to doctor who asked me to know to ER hearing about condition . I then consulted PCP and took around 7 days leave. I have also prescribed antidepressant by doctor .
During that time I wrote few mails to supervisor asking for release . However release was not granted . Later on he said I have to join back ,if I want to take few days off I need to share medical records with him . I did not do so . I tried to take help from my Upline Management,however they said I do not have any written proof of harassment so I cannot take it to HR.
Now they have accepted to release me at Feb 5 2018 and I will be leaving current job.

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.
