Dear Concerned Mom;
I read your letter and I understand what you must be going through. After working in the medical profession for 19 years, I finally struck out on my own. A wonderful nursing supervisor I had years ago said, "It's hard to be a christian and work in a hospital." Oh, how right she was!!
First, why has your daughter been targeted as the victim of such harrassment? Has she done something to deserve this kind of treatment from her peers? Perhaps there is something from her personal life or her past that has become known at her present job. None the less, that does not excuse the person(s) who are taunting her and making it difficult for her to earn a living.
My first suggestion would be: tell your daughter to visit the local E.E.O.C. office and file a complaint. Also, she may want to consider speaking with someone in the Human Resources Dept. of the hospital. I seriously doubt an attorney would intervene at this point, even though she is being tormented emotionally, she hasn't been fired and your allegations would be hard to prove.
Why are her supervisors directing her to obtain counseling? If she does have some mental or emotional illness, she may have a claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Tell her to keep her chin up and just do her job to the best of her ability.
God bless you and your daughter. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Thanks Pam for the kind words. First of all my daughter was fired from the hospital for job abandonment. She just couldn't take it any longer that day and left her job. What started the whole thing with her and her bosses was that she filled a grievance against them for making her go to counseling.The counseling she was to go to was for clocking in late two days straight so they decided she must have some personnal problems. Her union is standing behind her totally but they can not do anything about the slander. One lawyer I called told me there just wasn't enough money in it for them to take the case. They gave me names of lawyers in town who are "not quite as busy" and maybe one of them could help. I never called them. My daughter couldn't have a "bad reputation". She just got out of school and this was her first big job. I think she is just too quiet for them. Thanks again, Pam
