Discrimination on the Job

questions & answers

Question: I was working as a health care worker and a patient didn't trust me because i was a new employee. So he made a big deal of everything making the environment difficult. I dont know whati did but he complained. My boss could have switched us out but he sent me back. He then says he could fire me and get my license took. I later find out that I resigned. I was an on call employee and he just stopped calling me in. No write ups, nothing. So i get a letter in the mail saying I quit. Do i have a case?

Answer: You may want to speak directly with an attorney to find out whether or not you have a case. Employee relationships can be complicated and whether or not a person has a case depends on a lot of the facts. For example, did the person complain that you did something illegal or inappropriate that would cause your employer to think you would lose your license or put the employer at risk? Did your employer believe that you had done something wrong? In the alternative, did this only happen to you, or did that person not like people of a certain gender, race, or ethnicity? As you can see from this answer, more information is needed before someone can say whether you have a case or not.
