I was fired because I called a co-worker b*tch and this violated the respect in the workplace policy- never mind that said co-worker had been harassing me for six months and violated federal law! I made my supervisors aware of this, and still had to work with the co-worker; until I had reached the end of my rope.
On top of that the employer appealed my unemployment claim and won, and at my age no-one wants to hire me. What can I do?

Hi Cheryl, So sorry you are dealing with this not to mention scarry, the idea that you reported the hostile... see more

I am not looking for a new job for myself but I work with staffing companies to help them share their open jobs with Jobcase. Most of the staffing companies I'm speaking with are not hiring or are not hiring very many people in January.

But from what I am reading online, it seems January is a great time for job search -- this made me think of the Jobcase community:

I loved working there just didn't like some co workers opinion. They just start and think they knew more and they knew nothing. I let them do it their way. And then I would have to come behind them and fix it the proper way. Just got tired of it.

I would get tired of that too Jeffrey Rich - I get that. Where do you work now? It sounds like you got pretty fed... see more

I already posted about this prior to the actual termination but really need to vent and get some feedback so I apologize if this is a repeat... I was with my job as a mental health counselor for a university for 11 months, the same university where I received my degree and was certain I would retire from. Last week, I was nominated for the student mentor of the year award, an award dedicated to people who’s efforts are most likely to help... see more

I and my former coworker feel that I was wrongfully terminated. For the last several months of my job, I was obviously being targeted and unfairly singled out. I have a flash drive full of evidence. The office manager even seemed to act maliciously towards me. Despite the overwhelming stress affecting certain cognitive abilities, I hung in there. I have a meeting scheduled with Industrial Affairs to finalize my complaint against my former... see more

Everyday was a bad day for me at Waynes Farm because when I was working there I developed Carpel Tunnel and I was trying to reach out to my supervisor about the pain I was going through but it was like I was talking to a brick wall. So yes everyday was a bad day for me at Waynes Farm.

That sucks I am sorry.

Today I overheard some disgruntled co-workers conspiring a plot against our new supervisor to get him fired for claims of unjust treatment, discrimination, and what sounded like subtle acts of sexual harassment. Of course, I know none of this is true.

I have an active job so I’m constantly moving around the office and usually see what everyone’s up to. I’ve never noticed him getting out of line with anybody or talking to employees behind closed... see more

Woring by my self was the best way to stay positive while working at miami university. I did work well with others, but there was much gossip and others did not like that I rarely asked others for help, unless I needed help to not injure myself. When you are the person doing the work, you know what has been taken care of! Unless you have solid work relations with your co-worker and trust is not an issue. You can only assume and we know where that... see more

Dear sir /madam when someone is rude at your work place as a co worker it is wise to call them on a one an one and speak to them about they behavior in a good way and if they do continue u report them to the supervisor because I bring rude reflect on the team by extension the company or organization
