What is the name of your state? CALIFORNIA

Hi, for the last 3 months we have gotten a new boss. She is very demanding and seems to put all of us down for the work that we do. She has said that I don't know what I am doing and has asked me to do things a different way because they worked in another city but they are not the procedure. I went on disablity on the 13th of December and I have heard from numerous employees that she is bad mouthing me saying that I didn't know what I was doing, I did not know how to do my job and that all of my orders are wrong. She sent me a paycheck along with that was my personal invoice that I purcharsed christmas gifts with, she opened my original mail and put it in with my paycheck (which I am uncomforatble with and thought was agains the law) becuase it is made out to me. I left her a message with my return date, the same day I left her a message I tried to check my email and was unable to, but could check it any other time up until today when I left the message. I got a call from a previous co worker saying that he heard from someone that works in the same office with me that they let me go and he wanted to know how i was doing. so i called him to see who he spoke to and he told me and i called the guy but no answer back from him. one of my co workers tried to send me an email and it bounced back to them and then i got a call from a co worker saying that they are accusing me of fraud because the invoices that i got for the christmas toys she is saying that i charged to the company. i have all my proof that i paid it out of my own savings acct, this accusation of fraud has spread to many offices, do i have a right to sue for deformaiton of character, can they legally open my mail, and can they cut my email access off?

Oh Jeez

Your employer has taken no adverse actions against you.

Your e-mail has apparently been reset.

No one has actually accused you of anything.

Some co-workers have told you rumors about allegations of fraud.

You haven't actually spoken with a supervisor.

Hmmmm, do you think you have a lawsuit?
Try looking at the facts and ignoring the rest.

Everything you describe is based on rumors and second hand information. You need to contact the boss directly and ask about your employment status and if there any concerns about the money you owe.

Yes, your supervisor can legally open your paycheck.
