  • Unfortunately, an owner has the rights to impose his policies as long as there is no harrassment of any kind. That is why I do not like to work for others and their rules.....thankfully, I am able to be a sahm and earn money too. not with a JOB but a Home based BUSINESS. This business can be done from anywhere, does not matter where you live. This business has an amazing product that helps many with their lowers cholesterol, high blood pressure, arthristis, sleep disorders, gives more energy. ....learn more and visit my profile page and contact me anytime. I would love to share more with you.

  • I would contact your local EOE commission. Look for them online. It might be discrimination if it is based on sex, race, or otherwise. Yeah, I agree with BusinessMom123, working for someone else stinks, I won't do it anymore. Unfortunately most of us don't even know our rights in the workplace. I have a suit against my ex employer through EOE because of discrimination.

  • If that's really the case, then I would still contact the Labor board or the EOE. Don't quit your job, but freshen up your resume and start sending it out... you never know what opportunity might come along.
