i recently left my job because of retaliation from local management for reporting them to their bosses for ignoring sexual harassment of female staff by male coworkers and male customers. some of the women affected were minors, and the local managers got their asses tore apart for ignoring this problem. local management tore into my ass for getting them into trouble and began retaliating against me. after a whole month where i as a full time employee got half the hours i was supposed to i quit. the truth is i spoke to an attorney who listened to me, looked at my evidence and immediately said i had an excellent case for a settlement even in an employee friendly state like Indiana. i asked if he could take the case on contingency and he said they don't do that his retainer is 5k.
FML i could get rid of all my debts and be back in one foul swoop and i can't because the attorney won't take a percentage. all the times i was a kid and lawyers took my mothers bullshit cases against former employers and slip and fall scams on percentage and i get told money up front. FML
sorry just needed to vent somewhere.
