Might have a work related legal case?
I am an infrastructure engineer recently called in to fix a problem. The hiring manager only spoke about the task not the environment. He did not disclose how hostile the team was. The very first day I arrived - I was confronted. With two-months, In the parking lot- an engineer decided to intimdate me. He was written up for this than later fired. But apparently this same engineer had been doing this for 13 years with other employees but no one ever complained about him. This is a big project but apparently - there are no documentations, diagrams and the team could not understand me - I later found out, none of these people ever got trained. To make matters worse - unqualified leaders are making up rules (not best practices) as they go along. Really bad decisions. I have no budget to restructure, fix or modify the environment. I have no assistance. I am p****d. I am upset that this was not disclosed to me. I requested for help. A new engineer was hired than terminated. The reason - faied psyche test. I was never given one nor the others. The test had nothing to do with the work at hand. Apparently there was something else taking place. The test was not done by a doctor or psychiatrist. Tension is high and now - now everything I request from my manager is ignored. (mind you, i am still very new with this company). An easy answer is to walk away -Still What are my alternatives? Might I have a legal case?

while you might not, the city might or the state might. If they weren't trained there might be code violations or structure violations or procedural violations or even employment hiring violations. Sure you can talk this over with an attorney (since you might become involved in this situation as a witness later on... More
