Customer Question
I just had the...

I just had the most unfortunate experience at work in which my Boss was severely vile towards me. His outburst and vile language caused me to get up from my desk, tell him that he has no right to peak to me in that manner, and that he was a vile man to which I left the office noting that I was done with his filthy mouth and would not be returning! He replied Goodbye! I want to file an abuse not for damages, though it did render me quite upset, but to note a blemish on his record for anyone who will come after me. How, or can I file such a complaint, and to whom do I file? Thanks! Debbie

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you discussed this with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

He is the founder and the director! This is a small Non for profit, and there is NO HR!

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you an "at will" employee? Do you belong to a union?

No union

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I just want to know how to file a complaint so that it is recorded on his record as a verbally abusive employer, though he has been known to bang his desk to the point that is has cracked the wood, and thrown things around the office.

Do you think that you were targeted based upon your race, age, religion, gender, or disability, or in retaliation for doing any protected activity (FMLA leave, filing an EEOC case, etc...) ?

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.

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.
