• My Boss Fired Me. Can I Sue?

    Best answer: Unless you are in a union or under contract, in the U.S. employers can generally fire employees for any reason. You would have to be fired because you were a member of a protected class, for example, race or ethnicity. Look at any job posting for the list of federal protected classes.

    Best answer: Unless you are in a union or under contract, in the U.S. employers can generally fire employees for any reason. You would have to be fired because you were a member of a protected class, for example, race or ethnicity. Look at any job posting for the list of federal protected classes. Many states also include sexual orientation. I live in New York and they also include political beliefs. But if your boss just hated you because she didn't like your attitude, or even if your only offense was wearing red clothing to work when she preferred green, that would be enough reason to fire you. Unlike most of the more advanced European countries, U.S. workers essentially have no rights.

    I saw your other post about a 20 year old being promoted over you. If you are 40 or over, and this other person was promoted over you because she is younger, or if that led to your firing, you could potentially have a case for age discrimination under ADEA, so maybe you would have a case for a lawsuit.

    I don't know how far you can get with the EEOC being that it's now run by Trump. I think he would rather reward companies for hiring young women over older workers, especially if they are attractive and/or look like his daughter Ivanka. Maybe try with your state first or contact an employment attorney.

  • Why can’t it be illegal for homeless bums to bother people for money?

    If a complete stranger bothers you at the bus stop or a homeless person approaches you for money or if a complete stranger asks you for money in public, that isn’t considered harassment and it is taken seriously. Why is that? I think it should be illegal. In fact I usually catch the bus at a bus stop and some weird... show more
    If a complete stranger bothers you at the bus stop or a homeless person approaches you for money or if a complete stranger asks you for money in public, that isn’t considered harassment and it is taken seriously. Why is that? I think it should be illegal. In fact I usually catch the bus at a bus stop and some weird bums walking by there in town ask me for money and I tell them no but they still ask. Why can’t this be against the law? Shouldn’t it be against the law to even make conversation with a stranger in the first place when it isn’t important?

  • I was late to a meeting?

    I was late coming into work yesterday because of a bus delay, and didn't get into a 9am-10:30 meeting until 9:45. So I missed about half of it.

    I was late coming into work yesterday because of a bus delay, and didn't get into a 9am-10:30 meeting until 9:45. So I missed about half of it. I'm only an analyst, so not majorly high up in the company. The meeting wasn't a major one, it was just an assembling of 8 team members to discuss our feedback to the company as employees. I apologized to my manager immediately after and simply mentioned the bus delay, and promised it wouldn't happen again. She said it was fine, and seemed to accept the excuse. I'm still worried that this won't look good though, and that she's secretly planning to fire me. Do you normally get a written warning before being fired? Am I just being paranoid right now?

    An item valued at $150 was carelessly thrown on the porch im guessing because no signature was even obtained for it. I called fed ex who was the original deliverer and they said they delivered it to usps for them to deliver it. I looked it up on there tracking website and it says a "a label has been created, but this package is not yet in the system" but fed ex says it was delivered at 11:06 AM. I live in a bad neighborhood so I m assuming some thug or my neighbors since i live in an apartment, made off with it when they seen a free package sitting around. It says right on the label that it requires a signature. I m livid right now, is there any way to get this replaced or get a refund ?

    So, my previous car was sold a year or two ago. Last fall, the new owner got into a hit and run, and they were caught and it got impounded. Apparently, they never registered the car, so I got information from their local police about the car. We thought we handled the situation, with it clear that we had sold the car and it was seemingly made clear we were not responsible for his actions. Today, I received a letter from a debt collection agency trying to collect money from us for this. So the question is, are we in any way responsible for this money they are trying to collect? Can they actually do anything if we do not pay them? In Missouri, btw

  • If weed is legal in california, then prostitution is also legal. True or false?

    I think true because if you think about it, if you legalize weed, then it's also true that prostitution is legal. At least according to basic logic that is how I justify my answer.
