    At my job, I have had a loaded gun pointed at my face by a drunk employee, non stop harassment, private employee information provided to other employees, guns shot off within our building during business hours, asked to break DOT laws etc etc etc! When is enough, enough?!?!?! I need a lawyer! Anyone know where to start?

    Where do you work? Atlanta Public Schools? Sorry probably not a good time to make a joke. Fist suggestion is document document document...everything you can as fast as you can. Pictures. Statements write down dates, events etc. other witnesses etc. Start by calling local lawyers who specialize in employment disputes. Sorry for your trouble and good luck.

    Oh and dust of the resume and get ready to look just in case.

    Glad I refreshed the page. Can't add much to that. Really though, where do you work?

    Georgia is the ultimate "employment at will" state. If your boss or the owner of the company do bad things, or let others get away with doing bad things, your only real options are complain and stay or complain and leave.

    Unless you're being picked on for being a woman, a guy who thinks he's a woman, a non-Christian who finds any reference to God or the Bible offensive, or unless you're being harassed for being black or Mexican... THEN in those cases the law will be on your side.

    Dang. Is it an irreplaceable salary or something. I think I’d be gone, gone, gone.

    I've been working an undesirable job going on 3 years for $10/hr because the schedule is flexible so I can take care of my daughter when I need to.
    I imagine if a job has even decent pay some people will put up with a LOT!

    Nothing wrong with the occasional desk pop.

    Also, if someone pulls a gun on you, you can do a lot more than punch them!
