Go to the EEOC online portal and file a complaint with them online. You will never get through any other way.
My husband was exposed to 4 members of his family that had positive COVID tests; he called off work to get tested. We ended up having to do a home test due to our Medicaid lapsing; since his test was negative his job is trying to fire him for it. I'd also like to point out we live my... Read more »

You can but it’s probably a loser. Kentucky is an employment at will state which means you can be terminated for any reason or no reason at all. If it was a commercial test rather than a home test, it would have made your case much stronger.
Is this legal?
I wasn't offered EAP which is written Corporate Policy. When I went into work that evening, the Maint Supv asked "what are you doing here?

Unfortunately, the facts as you set them out above do not have the requisite elements for an employment discrimination claim or a libel and slander claim.
My employer said they were going to suspend me without pay for 4 days bc I was a no call no show 3 times.

No. Should not be able to add incidents, especially where original incidents are proven unfounded. File a complaint with the Labor Board.
My employer pays vaccinated employees 5 days of sick leave if they get Covid. If an unvaccinated employee gets Covid they are forced to use PTO or take the time unpaid.
New GM showed me a bag with sexual toys and said I could have them and started playing with them, then brought some to work to give me, and gave me alcohol and led to other things. Is this sexual harassment? Also the new AGM gave me quite a few long hugs

Certainly could be, yes. You should contact a civil rights attorney near your to review the case.
I put in 2 years of very hard work at my job while they did nothing but degrade me, and belittle me. It led to my eventual HR claim against the management. The managers then retaliated and I was wrongfully terminated a few days after the claim. Without any kind of notice that I had been fired, I... Read more »

I would contact and Employment Lawyer. I do not see any potential criminal charges unless there were threats of violence or abuse.

This does not appear to be a discrimination situation. The company is not under any obligation to rehire you after you voluntarily separated from them.
I work for a chain restaurant that is currently in litigation for their wage practices. Their fluid tip sharing policy is one of the reason I left.

You need to hire an employment law attorney and sue the GM and the store for fraud and theft.

I had told my new employer the first day i had worked there that im bisexual and polytheistic and before training was over they had cut my hours and told me i have a bad attitude and my work ethic was unacceptable. He also wrote me up since i had to stay home due to being unwell(I didnt even get a... Read more »

Difficult case to prove bc bad attitude and poor work ethic are both legitimate reasons to terminate, whether in the probationary or training period or thereafter. Proving it was based on Christianity or lifestyle choices wil be very hard unless there is other evidence.

This individual should first make a written report of the instances of harassment to the company's HR department. If corrective action is not taken after this, this individual can next file a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).

You may have a claim for retaliation under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, but this will depend on what you told your boss in your complaint. Your complaint must be "protected" under the law, meaning your complaint of harassment must be based on your race, sex, age, disability, and/or... Read more »
