Mesquite, TX asked in Employment Law for Texas

Q: Is there anything that can be done about this situation.?

To sum up my situation I quit my job in November last year because of my manager and coworkers. I was being ignored and doing extra work with no help because it was being said that I was taking pictures of the chef and sending it to our manager. Wasn’t true at all. I tried to explain myself and was told by my coworker that It didn’t matter I wasn’t trustworthy, and they were going to back off from me. She got a little violent telling me she wasn’t going to say anything else because she knows how she can get. I asked my manager numerous times to talk about the situation and she never spoke to me about it. I texted her about it instead and got told that it was an in person conversation and to respect her time off. She insisted I was believing something that wasn’t true, but it later got confirmed by a coworker. ^ I was having to do everything by myself even when we were very busy until I decided to quit. I’ve tried to reach out to corporate and HR but to no success.

A: It sounds like you have already taken action to remove yourself from the situation. You have no legal duty to take any further action now that you have quit. My recommendation is that you stop communications with your former manager and co-workers.

One of the principal advantages of the employment-at-will doctrine is that you can quit your job when you have an experience such as what you describe without legal consequence in most cases.
