I had worked for a Dr's office for 2 1/2 years. THey let me go the end of Nov. 2007. I have apllied all of the Spokane area to get a job. THe peolpe that call to check on my refences they keep telling me that they our not getting any return calls back out the refuse to answer any questions. What can i do to see if this is really happening to me.I have worked in the Gulf of Mexico for twenty years. on 06/08/09 I was on a vessel and had been cussed at, bully ed around for twelve days from another employee. on the thirteenth day, he approached me with the same attitude. I took the steps required by the company guide lines in reporting him to the Caption. the situation remained the same. when we were auguring, he approached me and threaten to do bodily harm. In turn I picked up a weapon to defend my self and threaten him back.I was terminated but not the other employee . I feel the whole situation was UN professionally handled and was wondering could the company black ball me for this?
