I was terminated and trespassed from my employer after getting into argument with a dispatcher from the company.

Asked over 1 year ago - Melbourne, FL

the company(labor ready) is a temp labor job.a new manager had just been put in place so for the previous 3 months there was no management and just 2 dispatchers and us workers who they would send to work.for whatever reason this guy didn't like me so i would never get calls for work if they came in even though my track record had been spotless.also i had just come off a workmen's comp claim that i ended earlier than i should have just to be able to work.i think between that and me calling him out for not giving gas money i left for someone set me back.the day of the incident i showed up for job i was supposed to go on and he told me he had sent someone else.since i was only averaging a day a week i finally had it out with him(non-physical)and i was trespassed.

    Answered . I agree with the other attorney. Based upon the facts presented, it is possible that you may have a claim for retaliation associated with your worker's compensation claim. I would recommend you contact a qualified employment attorney and discuss the matter in more detail. My firm has a Melbourne office and a very skilled labor attorney there that might be able to help.

    Answered . I don't know what trespassed means, but it probably wasn't a good idea to have it out with him.
