Moss Point, MS asked in Employment Law for Mississippi

Q: I was constructively discharged. OSHA confirmed that my issues were valid and true. The company admitted that, Can I sue

I was hired as A boat Captain in MS to replace the existing Captain ( howard) who the company said, was Going to retire. Howard had no intentions of retiring. Howard did everything he could to run me off. I tolerated it for sometime because I really needed the Captains job. Eventually it became apparent that Howard was forging mine and other names to Safety documents. OSHA investigated and Howard admitted it.

As a licensed Master I could not be involved in the falsification of Documents. There were also Coast Guard required drills that were falsified.

This took Place in April 2019 through June 2019.

I am inquiring now because as the New fishing season begins for 2020, Howard is still there. That is proof that he had no intentions of retiring and made it miserable on me to protect his job.

The Job paid about $70,000.00 for 6.5 months work. I worked there about 2.5 months. I would like the balance of what I should have made. and Something for the stress it caused my family
