In October 2015 I started experiencing verbal and physical abuse at work. I needed the job so I ignored it until it got really bad in January 2016. My manager hit me hard enough that I was wincing in pain for the rest of my shift. I quit the next day. for the following month or so I looked for someone to take represent me in court but no one would for some reason. So I resorted calling the corporate offices of Culvers (that's the company I worked at). they said it was not their problem and that I needed to talk to the owners of the restaurant as it is a franchise type ownership system. About a week later my girlfriend who worked their as well and myself started to receive texts and pictures. most of them were mocking me for saying that I was verbally and physically abused. some of them said said F*uck Joe. so I went to the police and they said they would talk to them. After the police talked to them the manager from Culvers called my girlfriend and said she needed to convince me to back off or he was gonna bring up an incident at work where I threw a brush at the floor and it bounced in the direction of a coworker. that co worker since then has passed away. do I have a leg to stand
Unless you are related to or in a relationship with the manager in question, this is not a domestic violence situation. Consult an employment lawyer.
This answer is provided for general information only. No legal advice can be given without a consult as to the specifics of the case.
First off, your legal category listing is incorrect. I will fix it shortly, but your problem is an employment law related issue. I don't know if you have a case or not, but if you search for AVVO employment lawyers,. someone should be able to tell you if you have a case. There are very strict time lines for making both an EEOC discrimination case and/or under state law, so you want to consult with an experienced employment lawyer as soon as possible.
