Odessa, TX asked in Divorce, Employment Discrimination and Sexual Harassment for Texas

Q: If I expose my boss/dad for cheating with a coworker and divorcing my mom, will it effect her outcome if he's fired?

My dad is my boss at work. He left my mother for one of our coworkers. She's half his age and has only been there six months. She's made sexual advances at me that I blow off. Well he fell for it. The day after he left my mother I arrived at work and he started bossing me on things to do with no mention of what happened. I cussed him out. Then I worked 2 days to finish the week without any further contact. He texted my mother saying I will be called in the office first thing tomorrow because of our altercation. I feel that it was warranted. I have a feeling that he wants me to sign a red notice for what I have done in response to his unprofessionalism. I'm pretty sure his bosses don't know what's going on and this is just to keep me under control. I want to let them know but if he gets fired I'm worried that could make things worse for my mother in her case. What should I do
