Think your daughter's old company's owners would have sent the same email no matter where she was working--no wonder their customers preferred dealing with her while was working for them. Very shortsighted of them to have disregarded her quality rather than expanding on it while she was an employee. Her wanting to put this incident behind her speaks to her professionalusm and maturity, but I would be in the same mindset as you if my DD was threatened with this crap!

Not to put a downer on what has transpired so far.... but you can never say it is over...


Just because the lawyer has made a stmt, it does not prevent the owner from firing this attorney and hiring another that will continue the pursuit... I have seen vindictive owners that think they are always correct and will shop for an attorney that will agree with them....

Yep. I had an employer who literally felt he owned his employees. He also felt traffic laws didn't apply to him because he brought tax revenue to the city. (He literally told this to a cop - who wrote him the ticket anyway.) He also felt taxes didn't apply to him. Last I heard he was living in the Caymens because he was a tax fugitive from the USA. Some employers are just irrational.

What embarrassment? The attorney is being paid to try. He tried. He billed. Hopefully he gets paid.

I'm guessing that the attorney saw what a jerk this former employer was to push with no basis in fact, and probably insisted on being paid up-front!

DD did speak to her manager. Her manager's response was, " what a jerk!" and told DD not to worry about it.

So, it appears to be over. Just 72 hours of hell.
That's good news. It also confirms the smart choice she made changing jobs.

Glad things have taken a positive turn and that her current employer was so supportive. Hope this is the last she has to deal with this, but glad she got her own lawyer.
