My GF has worked for her mother-in-law for 14 years. Started at the bottom and moved up into management over the years until she has been the manager of her office for years now and it has run very well . She is a medical biller/coder and her office has one of the highest returns in the area, well they used to I mean... The problem was when she divorced her abusive husband almost 2 years ago... Now my GF has been demoted for no reason stripped of all her duties and now is just another worker there. her office staff is being treated the same way. New workers have come in to take over that don't have a single clue what to do or how to run the office and yet they expect my GF to train these people . The CEO is my GF's ex mother-in-law. For 14 years they have let my GF run the office and make the hard choices and it was went extremely well. she was never questioned on why she did something a certain way especially when it came to legal issues. Like I said now its all different. She has been asked even after showing proof that what they are asking her to do is illegal and yet they push to do it. My GF gave up and di what they have been asking but its all documented and she has only done it because she is afraid to get fired. This company is miss using government grant as well. The CEO "ex mother-in-law" has hand picked her BOD and she is also the boss of her HR person so it does nothing to go to her for help. This lady is evil she is friends with all the high ups... police, judges you name it she can get out of anything.... and she does in fact she got her boys off the hook many times for violence and drug along with DUI's. So who does my GF turn to when it seems like she cant win this battle. She could Whistle blow the company for all the illegal things her CEO is doing but then chances are the place would get shut down leaving 100s of people without jobs. The company is falling apart now since all the managers do not know what they are doing and since she has been removed from all of those duties only because she divorced her abusive husband... Is this not harassment? Help

It's not only a harrassment situation as much as it is retalitory action Get an Attorney that works with work related issues. ( PAt JAcob) for one. Alot depends on how many employees on staff due to details related to Federal Regulations and such. Remember her demotion and slary changes will directly affect the amount of CHild support that transfers. That can make all the differences in family run businesses.

talking about child support she has 3 kids yet has never aked once for child support and her and the ex have joint cust. She has already said that if her pay was ever deducted she then would ask for child support and that's probly the only reason her salary is still the same as it has been for the last few years because the ex month-in-law protects her son even tho the ex husband makes almost double what my GF makes. Its a really bad situation and my GF comes home in tears a lot of nights. Im sick of them treating her and a lot of the other staff this way and I don't want to end up in jail by taking it upon myself to make her boss's life hell because like I said she has a lot of power in the area and my GF is scared for her life to even look deeper into this. This family (her ex) take care of each other to no end even if they are at fault and revenge is one thing they always get. Even Karma has never touched them if you are into that kind of stuff. Her Ex has threated me before, not to my face but to others. Its just sad we are normal hard working people who just want to be left alone and this family has stripped us of this. Thanks for your reply
