A few days ago, a co-worker jokingly said she had no idea what she was doing. I jokingly agreed. She un-jokingly slapped me. I tell boss and a week later, I'm FIRED for being VERBALLY ABUSIVE.

Guess who still has their job????

I'm taking commissions while I look for another job and a lawyer (because I have been physically abused by another co-worker and she, too, still has her job).

Prices are $10 for sketches (digital for now until my scanner works), $30 for full 2 character digital piece, and $40+ for full digital pieces with 3+ characters.

All I can do is ask so I figured I'd put it out there.

Here is a link to my Futurama fanart.


Any of the pencil sketches you see, if you are interested, I will sell for $10 + S&H.

What a coincidence, I was just about to start selling people my comic for $1 per panel.

Although I can't talk, a dude offered me $60 to make three T Shirt designs.

Yeah, I'm looking for a lawyer. A friend of mine works for a few so I'm hoping to meet up with her soon.

Have you contacted the EEOC?  I'd look into the Policies of the company/store, etc.  If she hit you, then ask your lawyer about possibly charging her with assault (though it would look fishy after this amount of time).  You said you told the boss:  Did you tell him as a "friend" or in an official way?

I have a few years on you and I've seen quite a few bogus terminations, usually  done to males - women are easier to sympathise with and if there's a complaint, most corporations will side with the woman.  I wouldn't wait for a "friend" to come through with a lawyer but contact the Bar Association for your state and ask for a lawyer who may take this sort of case pro bono

Here's a link to help you but you're the only one who will be able to reverse this injustice and that means that you have to be aggressive.


Also think about what you want - your job back or loss of wages and punitive damages.  Both have their pros and cons - if you go back to work at the place, you may be working in a hostile atmosphere.  If you win a judgement then you can kiss that place goodby as far as a reference.

It's Friday but you really need to start making your plans over the weekend.  Write everything down as it happened in a timeline and try to remember exact words that were used in all conversations.

Very important to have the name of any other employees that actually saw the assault happen. Men get wailed on quite a bit in the work place by women (punches, slaps in the arm and on the back) and women are often surprised that a man takes offense, similar to being sexually harassed. I would do as Ralph suggested, especially if the co-worker actually attacked you physically in anger.
