My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Georgia
Hello, I have recently had to quit my job due to increasing harassment and destruction of property at my workplace. I have filed police reports for both the stolen items (hand tools-October) and the damage to my vehicle and work shoes being filled with a tire bead sealer (tar-like substance-November 17th) with DeKalb Police before the attempt to terminate me came on November 19th, at which time I reminded the district (NAME OMITTED) and store manager (NAME OMITTED) they were not following company protocol, and that suspension for the alleged violations was being bypassed. The same district manager (NAME OMITTED) was named by me in a phone meeting with the owner of the company (NAME OMITTED, NAME OMITTED Enterprises) for buying illegal substances from a general service technician (NAME OMITTED), also to let him know the store and its employees were operating without consequence for threats to me by the same Technician (NAME OMITTED) and generally unsafe and unprofessional. I Filed with OSHA for wrongful termination attempt that Monday (November 19th) and was told if I had allowed them to terminate me, they could follow through with whistleblower preceedings. I took my 3-day suspension, was off for Thanksgiving, and showed up with a tow truck Friday morning to pick up my toolbox and quit due to feeling unsafe, and generally harassed to the point of quitting. I received a letter from OSHA (with the response from my previous employer stating no evidence was found of my harassment or threats to me, and that the matter had been resolved as far as OSHA was concerned) I feel they are expecting me to just go away and let this pass, which bothers me greatly.
Thank you for your time, any information or advice greatly appreciated.
