    Should I Watch My Back.

    Ok here it is I was fired from my Job for being in hospital for two days ( boss says I was to much of libiality)

    Its a very long story but short of it I was working over 70 to 80 plus hours week .

    It was all peachey till Mr Dr. found my heart valve problem will need surgery at some point .

    Owner of Shop threw me in trash and fired me from hospital bed over phone.

    Florida is a right to work state so its tuff . I do have an EEOC case pending .

    I also have an attorney that just picked up the case on wage and hour .

    There is some very bad feeling on my end and this employer end.

    I guess he thought I would just lay down and take being throw in trash and left in weeds .

    Here is the scenario this employer had allways thought he is above the law on many things .

    When he gets served paper on this suit he will flipp out .

    Should I just be extra careful and watch my back or am I being nuts.

    Thanks for rant

    It virtually always pays to watch your back, some times more than others.

    We can assume that he is going to be less than happy with you when he gets the papers.
    Of course I know nothing of your former employer other than what you have told us here, so anything we say here would just be based on that.
    So does he run a nursery school and go crying to a therapist when things don't go his way or is he a former mercenary with a history of law suits against him dropped because witnesses vanished?

    I would not get totally paranoid about it but I would try to be a little more aware while out and about until everything is resolved.

    It doesn't hurt to be careful.

    I don't live my life looking over my shoulder, but that doesn't mean that I'm not aware when I've recently evicted somebody.

    Your the only one that knows if he is capable of becoming violent. That being said, always keep an eye out for anything....

    Its retail in the service indursty , thats the thing I just dont know if I am leaning to paranoid end or not .

    This guy tries to come across as the bad ***** but its hard to tell .

    My gut tells me that he would try and send some one to do his dirty work.

    He is not a very big guy 150 pounds soaking wet.

    He allways made comments about breaking knee caps

    I got this guy by about 75 pounds

    Paranoia is unfounded or exaggerated fear. It doesn't sound like you have enough information to make a determination of how real the threat is, therefore I don't see your concern as paranoid.

    With the second bit of information you supplied us with...I would be more aware of my surroundings. Good Luck with your case...sounds justified with story you present.

    Never let your guard down but do not EXPECT him to launch a sneak attack.

    It pays to be careful, but not worry too much. I hope it comes out in your favor.

    One suggestion, don't write any more information about your case on the internet, and don't talk to folks about it. You have a lawyer now, be a good client and keep it hush hush until he advises you otherwise. You never know what might come back against you.

    I'd keep my eyes open. Anyone low enough to fire someone who had been giving almost double time to his company over the phone while they are in the hospital, could be capable of anything.

    Are you aware of any actions taken by him (or associates) to inflict violence? If so, consider a restraining order.
