No appeal for malpractice doctor for being fired
After the trial, Duchaine’s attorney said her client did not know that her employer was guilty until the day of her trial.
“She never received any letters or anything,” the attorney, Michael Smith, told CBS News in an interview Thursday. “She just came in here, her head was spinning. She asked me, ‘Why didn’t you let me know?’ It was a decision she made in the moment.”
Prosecutors said Duchaine left work at around 7 p.m. Wednesday because the employer had cut her salary. She was fired immediately but was put through to the trial, where she testified that the employer fired her because of the al블랙 잭 카지노legations made by her former co-workers. She denied knowing or caring enough to file a complaint against the company.
Prosecutor Mike DeFilippo told jurors she left work in frustration that she had88 카지노 not been paid for a month.
Investigators said after she was fired that day she sought out another job but found ano마이다스 카지노 사이트ther employer and started another one, at which point she sought out another employer and started another one.
Duchaine said she and her employer, an insurance broker, had agreed to put the allegations that she was sexually abusive in a workplace hearing but were told to “go for broke,” according to CBS News.
She told authorities after losing her job at the firm that she was told it was not against company policies to complain, but the company fired her anyway.
DeFilippo said the company’s policy to terminate employees without good cause is in place and the decision to fire a person “would be considered by the [employee’s] employer to be misconduct.”
Duchaine’s case has become a poster child for employers who might not want to bring a case against employees who are fired or disciplined for misconduct, with several employers firing or demoting employees without due process claims, court records show.
For instance, an insurance company on Thursday settled a wrongful termination claim with a former employee who said a former employer fired her for filing a lawsuit against his insurer, according to court records.
The new case comes at a time when some states have toughened rules on civil lawsuits that could result in job loss if employees aren’t treated fairly, particularly if these cases go to trial.
Earlier this year, Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey created a task force with six other governors, including one Democrat, to study the issue and report back to lawmakers.
