    Hostile work environment harassment occurs when unwelcome comments or conduct based on sex, race or other legally protected characteristics unreasonably interferes with an employee’s work performance or creates an intimidating, hostile or offensive work environment. Anyone in the workplace might commit this type of harassment – a management official, co-worker, or non-employee, such as a contractor, vendor or guest. The victim can be anyone affected by the conduct, not just the individual at...

    If I understand correctly, you received $1,500.00 that you should not have received. After noticing the payments, you promptly notified your employer. As a response, your employer stated you do not have to worry about repaying the $1,500. If this is the case, I would respond to your employer reminding them of the conversation and the fact that they waived any repayment. I would dispute that you owe any money. Unfortunately, it is not a clear cut issue because it a "he said/she" said...

    The timing of the occurrence certainly leads one to raise an eyebrow. I have dealt with Wal-Mart before. Prior to the price change incident, were you at the d-day step of the write-up process? If so, what were the other write-ups related to? It is unlawful to interfere with a covered employee's right to use FMLA leave. In addition, it is unlawful to retaliate against an employee for taking FMLA leave. In this case, you would have to be able to show that the individual writing you up...

    Up charging under Medicaid may qualify as a False Claim and, thus, Medicaid Fraud. Without knowing more, I am unable to say if your situation constitutes up charging. I have handled claims under the False Claims Act involving Medicaid fraud and would be happy to discuss with you further. Greg Mansell (614) 610-4134 Mansell Law

    I see two issues presented. 1. Can you be terminated for the comments and 2. Is there some liability for you for saying the comments - above and beyond the termination. First, yes. You can be terminated for any reason as long as it is not an illegal reason. There was no invasion of privacy here. The individual did not go into your purse or computer. The person overheard you talking. By the fact patterns very nature, you were not being private if you were talking loud enough for someone...

  6. What can I do about a customer implying that I am a racist?

    You can ask the customer to leave. It is hard to prove a negative. You know and your co-workers know the reason for your behavior has nothing to with the customer's race. If you own the place, then ask the person not to come back. If you do not own the place, inform your superiors of what happened. If this customer has already threatened another employee and has now caused a scene, I would venture to guess the higher-ups don't want her in the store. If the women is going outside the store...

  7. My employer has denied my prenatal appointments, do I have any legal rights?

    Does your employer have a handbook or policy related to leave of absence, vacation, etc? Does your employer let other employees take leaves for any reason? I would try to use vacation or some other paid time off. If you employer is treating you less favorably than non-pregnant employees with regard to your leave and other terms and conditions of employment, you may have a claim for pregnancy discrimination. Often, getting an attorney involved can help the employer to back off a bit. I think...

    Based on you account of the facts, the individuals were w2 employees. Even if they are waitstaff that receives tips, they are entitled to a wage of $3.85 and/or a combined total pay of $7.70 per hour. If no payroll was done, this was obviously violated. If you would like to discuss further, I would be happy to talk with you. Greg Mansell (614) 610-4134

  9. Is it legal for my company to require me to disclose all medications I am taking, based on 'reasonable cause'? I live in Ohio.

    There is a lot of questions I have here. What is your position? Did you sign something that stated you can be subject to a drug test? Are they claiming this is a "random" drug test? Has anyone else been asked to take a drug test? I think you need to get an attorney involved. It sounds like the drug test is retaliatory for the sexual harassment conversation you had with HR. They may be trying to find a "legitimate" way to terminate your employment. I would talk to legal counsel...

    A lawsuit can cost a little or a lot in attorney fees and costs depending on how quickly the lawsuit is resolved. In addition to the attorney fees you pay to defend the lawsuit, you may be liable for the attorney fees and costs of the Plaintiff if he/she prevails (wins the lawsuit). The damages from an ADA lawsuit are primarily lost wages but can also include emotional components. I suggest you provide more details to an employment attorney so they can evaluate the case and make a...
