    I'd have posted this in the Ask an Attorney section instead... If you're looking at losing your job due to being assaulted then that's where you're headed.

      Sounds like that guy need a wrench to his skull.......


      Being non union....you still have basic rights. I wouldn't just drop it. Getting your ass kicked and forgetting about it to save your job while that guy keeps his isn't the way to go. I'd be talking to a magistrate about that guy.....and a lawyer if the company wants to bully you into dropping it.

        I agree, this should probably be in the Ask an Attorney section & I'm move it there so FelaFella can read it.

        If the RR (TM) knew the guy was a nutcase, maybe this wasn't really the first "episode" of him assaulting other people? If you sweep it under the rug, they may fire you for something else later & then you're really out of luck. If you're injured at work, report an injury due to the altercation, & then fired from work, you should be able to file an OSHA Whistleblower lawsuit for wrongful termination. With or without the fighter present, by the way the TM handled this (option 1 & option 2,) it doesn't sound like a place I'd like to work if that's how they treat their employees. There is other sh!t you can do to earn a living or other RRs to work for. Sorry to hear you got your ass beat at work & good luck to ya.

          What nsrlink said.

          File an OSHA Whistleblower complaint NOW. You have 180 days, but why wait? They are already in violation of 49 U.S.C. ß20109 (c) 2.

There ainít no point in being a go getter out here, the company only expect more out of you when you do. I just wanna get my stuff done, make a little overtime each week & go home. We ainít even get a guarantee like yíall, and I work 6 days every other week.

                  Thanks to the guys who helped with all them links. Gives me some reading material during the football game today, and hopefully I can get a ball rolling this week.
                  Yeah, it was a jab at someone else. Bad joke. Sorry.

                        They want to blame the victim for the assault? Typical RR BS-I would check and see who psychoboy is related to-because he is almost certainly some bigwig's bummy assed, criminality orientated, chemically altered (there is NO recovery from meth damage!) lowlife relative.

                          Well they are protecting this creep for SOME REASON. If you can find out what it is it would help your case...and it does sound like you have one hell of a case!
