What to do about possible employee rights violations?

I have been denied personal time for family issues that was requested far in advance of the date; I was put on call for sick days and never had any days off; I was denied time with family on Christmas to work on-call hours. I was also forced into quitting my job as my former district manager said, ”If you don’t quit, then your life for this company will be made very very difficult, if not impossible”.

If you believe that your rights as an employee have been violated it is important that you speak with an employment attorney in your area as soon as you can.  This is to insure that if there is a case you can file it before the statute of limitations expires.  You can start exploring the possibility of violations by calling the EEOC in your area.  Indianan is one of those states that has an abundance of laws over and above the federal laws to protect employees from discrimination and wrongful termination.  You were forced to quit. You would not have left but for being threatened. That is tantamount to being fired.  Please seek legal help as soon as possible.  Good luck.
