2 questions. I just resigned my employer of 19 years, reason unhappy and to much stress; I am considering several job offers to companies that would be competitors to my now last employer. I did not have any non conpete or agreement; I have a feeling that this employer will do everything in their power to keep me out of the same feild. I have even heard that they were considering trying to have me aressted for taking important documents such as customers list ,prices etc,and get a schearch warrant for my home; I will not be intinadated by this as I have seen them atttempt under handed practices in the pasted. Can they attempt such action,and if they do and find nothing can I take action against them? Question 2 Same employer allowed a suppervisor general manager (single) have an open affair with a married hourly employee. All est 40 employess knew of this incident for over 2 1/2 to 3 years;During such times this houly employee was given promtions etc; I am sure neither complainted to the employer about sexual harrasment; I personally brought this to the attention of the employer and told them they were sending a wrong message to all employees; Many employees hourly felt that if they said something they would be subject to loss of job or some type of chance of advancement; The houly employee involved in this affair has been terminated but ths supervisor is still out there; Many plant personal were and are upset over this and want to know if any action can be taken against the company to release this supervisor?
