I am being forced by my employer to seek counseling for stress in the work place and it has been discussed with my co workers.

Seattle, WA |

I had a meeting with my manager and the HR manager and they told me that they would only say that I needed to take time off and then less than 2 hours after I left work emails are going around that I am crazy. Do I have a case? They called me in after working over 140 hours in the last two weeks due to one of my reports leaving and forced me to sign a M]mandatory referral form for counseling or lose my job. I have a copy of emails sent by other managers discussing with one of my reports that I was crazy.

So sorry to read of this -- do you have a question in here? If it's "can I sue my employer for letting the word out?", talk to a labor law attorney in Seattle.

Good luck.

In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
