Q: Extreme sexual advances daily by boss. He assaulted me yesterday while holding a firearm threatening to have me arrested
He has me in his truck 280 miles from home working on a remodel. We're the only 2 people working the job. The owner of the house is a federal agent and my boss is using that to bully me. Im paid in cash. I have asked for him to sign a contract labor agreement, to which he has refused. His advances are extreme and get violent at times when I try to get him off of me. He is an ex con and carries a holstered and loaded gun with the safety off at all times.
So if he is an Ex con, why not report him to police as felon in possession of a fire arm?
He is not required to sign any contract as Tx is an "at will" State, which means they can fire you without cause, subject to some limitations.
If this abusive boss, has a supervisor, you should document each of these events, what happened, where you were, any witnesses, etc. and report it to his supervisor.
A: When you state the fact it is the home of a federal agent you are remodeling, and you boss is using that to "bully" you, is your citizenship status in question? Do you feel comfortable in reporting this matter to the police? No job is worth what your are being subjected to. Quit, and contact law enforcement
