I am a female that has worked in the construction industry for over 2 decades and quite frankly, a product of my environment.  My threshold for appropriate workplace conduct has crept its way up during this time and it wasn’t until last year that that threshold was broken.  Two days after the incident took place at a work function, I was expected to return to work - when I asked for help to recover, my words were twisted, they’ve since then been used against me, and I was offered a severance package in lieu of options to preserve my employment.  I did not sign that agreement because they wanted to buy my rights...all my rights...past, present and future when no one should be terminated for something like this.  They conducted an internal investigation with their own people - funny how no blame or foul play was to be found.  I was discarded. I’ve been accused of extortion.

Unfortunately at this time I cannot disclose any details but those that know me, know that I never ask for help for myself. 

This time it’s different. I need your help to take a stand against my past employer.  I was warned this would be a brutal process and there would be a time I’d want to give up.  I cannot give up now - not when they are expecting me to after more lies and false ‘as-a-matter-of-facts”.  The retainer alone for the lawyer is $10k - I will need to pay at least the first half of that very soon and the 2nd half hoping for enough time to to raise that money and additional funds to complete the process until justice is found.

The clock for taking action stops on July 2nd, 2018 and my hopes are to be able to make my stance at that time and bear the 9-12 month battle ahead.

Will you stand with me?
