    Harassment: Re: Blind-Sided by Accusation

    I don't see any basis for a lawsuit. On what basis do you think you can file one? The governing federal EEO law requires an employer to conduct an inquiry into an allegation of sexual harassment,...
  2. Re: Violation of Section 296 of the Human Rights Law

    You should ask the DOL to tell you what full relief would be if they found that your ex-employer discriminated against you when it terminated your employment. Full relief will give you some idea of...

    Harassment: Re: Accused of Sexual Harassment

    It appears that you were terminated for theft, which you don't deny. It's not clear what the theft has to do with sexual harassment allegation. But your employer told you the investigation of the...

    Privacy: Re: My Employer Took My External Hard Drive

    Did you have your employer's permission to connect the external drive to the company's computer? Why would you need a personal external drive at work? Does your company allow employees to do...

    Job Benefits: Re: Paid Time Off

    Have you explained to your employer why you must have 20 days of paid vacation and told it it whatever you must to do related to a personal family issue during your absence? You are asking for a...

    Hiring: Re: Arbitrary Degree Accreditation Requirement

    The agency involved obviously doesn't consider those with a degree from an unaccredited college or university as eminently well qualified and your arguments are unlikely to change the agency's...

    Re: Employment Agencies Barring Applicants

    That's good to know.

    Re: Employment Agencies Barring Applicants

    Why are you telling me this? I don't make or interpret the law. Further, you've got a rather distorted notion of felonies. There are plenty of felons and individuals with conviction records whose...

    Getting Fired: Re: Fired by County Without Cause
