Hello Kat57's, You are so sweet to respond to this person. I am new here at aid page and I have to say that my heart goes out to a lot of people. I really enjoy talking with people, I have had a very difficult life and I know what it's like to have these kinds of problems. I used to do paralegal work, and if you ever need someone to talk to you are welcome to write. What ever you say to me will be confidential if you like. You are just as important as the next person, don't you forget that! You will be in my thoughts and I hope that what ever is troubling you gets better.
I'm so sorry things are so bleak right now, but you remember you have your children to hug and kiss good nite, even if its in a sleeping bag on the street. Kids will usually choose a parent or parents give the choice between them and the streets,, I will be praying for you.. Kids want to be near their parents.. God sees a the big picture I don't and believer me there have been too many times I almost said forget, don even pray for me. I won't go into my stories but some of them are posted in some of my posts..
I pray that God will bless you abundantly for your needs, and that you will have peace that goes beyond your understanding....
Hi. well today was the day in court for my eviction and they gave us 10 days to come up with 1900.00 dollars or leave our home. i am at my wits end. i could use any help or advice at this point or me and my family will be out on the streets. we need help and prayers, i have 3 children and considering the fact we lost our house 2 yrs ago to black mold and lost everything this would be devistating for them. i feel very discouraged right now. someone please talk to me. thank you chris
In response to Butterflygdancer:
Whistle blowing occurs when an employee tells a government official, upper-management authorities, or the press that her or his employer has engaged in some unsafe or illegal activity.
Whistleblower Protection Act of 1989 protects federal employees from discrimination by firing.
False Claims Reform Act of 1986 requires the whistleblower who discloses information relating to a fraud perpetrated against the US government to receive 15-20% of the proceeds if the government brings suit against the wrongdoer.
Title VII & State Laws: Civil Rights Act of 1964—
No discrimination in employment based on race, color, national origin, religion, gender, disability, and age. (Gender DOES NOT INCLUDE sexual orientation. Title VII applies to employers affecting interstate commerce with twelve or more employees, labor unions with twelve or more members, labor unions operating hiring halls (to which members go regularly to be rationed jobs as they become available), employment agencies, and state and local governing units or agencies. A special section of the act prohibits discrimination in most federal government employment.
Minnesota law covers all people who are employees and does not discriminate on sexual orientation.
Sexual Harassment: Court interpreted statute. The two types of sexual harassment are Quid pro Quo and Hostile environment.
Quid Pro Quo is that something in exchange for sexual favors.
Hostile environment harassment occurs when the employer knowingly fails to take steps to remedy an abusive work environment by taking a tangible employment action. “The workplace is permeated with discriminatory intimidation, ridicule, and insult, which are sufficiently severe or pervasive to alter the conditions of the victim’s employment and create an abusive working environment.
Remedies under Title VII: If the plaintiff successfully proves that unlawful discrimination occurred, he or she may be awarded reinstatement, back pay, retroactive promotions, and damages.
--Compensatory damages are available only in case of intentional discrimination.
--Punitive damages may be recovered against a private employer only if the employer acted with malice or reckless indifference to an individual’s rights.
--The statute limits the amount recovered for damages from specific employers (ranging from $50,000 against employers with one hundred or fewer employees to $300,000 against employers with more than five hundred employees).
--1. Plaintiff is a member of a protected class.
--2. Denied something.
--3. Qualified/not to be fired.
--4. Other member class gets the benefit. Disparate Impact
--1. “Neutral” Rule.
--2. Disportionate impact on a class.
Your sworn affidavit of facts on the complaint is a start.
In addition, is there any witnesses--most likely not if he was trying sexual harassment in violation of Title VII.
True, that it may be hard to prove, but filing a complaint will haunt him or her if another person files a complaint.
Talk with the other employees--past and present, especially the bosses and get their names and contact information.
This is a start!
