    What about if they have a lying witness? In many cases, it’s an issue were several people are against you and they stick together and lie; making it appear that the real perpetrator has credible witnesses.

    ....When they cross-examine you again on the same question, simple say, "I believe I've answered that question already." No need to answer again. This is the prosecutors/victims lawyer tactic, to get you to say a different answer, different outcome, so simply state every time on a demanded repeated questioning, "I believe I've answered that question already." Works every time. Hell, you can even ask the court to "play back" the court recording to this point in time if they deny they hadn't presented the question before! And if the judge demands you repeat, request the recording to be played back, tell judge i don't want to indict myself in saying something different as this happens to all of us, recalling for word for word is difficult for everyone. One wrong word can indict myself. Innocent people recalling also can change the story if repeated, not just the guilty. so to be safe, play back the recording.

    I was attacked verbally by an ex supervisor at work on 7/10/18. He yelled at me threaten then attempted to grab me. This is the second time this has occurred the first was with someone who had the same job position but he threw at me and insulted me. The supervisor was notified both events. So later that night there's a guy making false accusations about me concerning the attack from earlier I go tell him my side of the story express that I felt threatened embarrassed and was feeling traumatized and walked off. Later that morning as some employees are getting off and others stay to work over. I overheard two people talking about the event. Come to find out it was the witness and the guy making the false accusations. I waited till the next day to call Human Resources to report the incident. They did an investigation one to which I was and quote "excited" that I was being attacked for the second time for reasons I didn't warrant. Who gets excited from what I have been going through? Is a rape victim excited when they're attacked? Does that victim had a right to feel some kinda way? Was I just supposed "take it" and continue to work? Mentally this event has me broken I got no justice, just my words used against me and laid off my job. I got laid off I did nothing I exspressed how violated I felt and how I had been dealing with working in such a hostile environment . I expressed to HR how I felt and I am still distraught they in no way helped me. There are witnesses and video.

    What if I'm experiencing workplace mobbing? The difference or indifference in attitude , nit picking , faces, change in attitude of other associates or employers , Negative comments no support .

      You can ask HR or appropriate personnel to help you, but nothing can be done to physically force your employer to promote you or to treat you better. .

    Too bad psychological research does not bear out that being calm and unemotional = truthfulness. In fact the opposite is true. The legal system is antiquated from a social science, psychological perspective.

      Targets and victims are not protected in the US, because most people bosses, co workers and judges are corrupt. Good luck finding justice in this country.

    I would have mixed feelings about hiring a lawyer that represents both sides.

    • CitizenOWorld
      CitizenOWorld Year ago

      +Cheryl Young I think it could be an advantage. Say you are an employee and you hire someone who has represented employers in the past. They know what kinds of tactics are used by employers' lawyers to win. It goes the other way, too. Unless you have reason to believe that your lawyer would sabotage you for a payoff from the opposition, I wouldn't worry about that.

    When I think of jury trials in civil suits, I think of the continental US, but not my home country (Canada). In the latter country, judges, not juries, typically get to decide civil cases, even though I still believe that the advice Arkady Itkin provides is useful, in that telling the truth is better than lying (even if that means saying "I don't remember").

      You should be writing all of this down. Date, time, what was said or done, who said it or did it, their title and relation to you (supervisor, co-worker, etc.), who else was there when it happened, how they reacted. Be sure and also write down the times you addressed it and to whom. Also document your requests to be transferred. Also, find someone you trust and start telling them what happened as soon as you can after it happens. It doesn't have to be a coworker but it should be someone whose word would probably be trusted in court, such as your minister or a trusted family friend who is older than you. If you choose to tell it to a psychiatrist or psychologist, be aware that a lot more than what happened at work may come out in court if you authorize them to testify. If you can afford a lawyer, get one who is experienced with Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) law, and who is authorized to represent clients in federal court (this would not be a civil case). They will help you file a complaint with the EEO. If you cannot afford a lawyer, report all of this to your nearest EEO office yourself. You can also do it online or over the phone. Report it as soon as possible, as there are time limits on how long you can wait after these things were done to you. No one is going to help you but yourself, so be proactive. Start with writing everything down and keep on writing it down.

    I was verbally assaulted by my boss. He got close enough for me to feel his breath on my face. I am a woman. I have been contemplating filing an Fed EEO, but is it true that if he harasses and verbally assaults men, my claim of harassment based on sex will be void? There were 2 men he yelled at the same time, however I was the only one he charged physically.

      +Otie Jason that is terrible that you got fired for false accusations - sorry about that. Although, the way you write is very aggressive. 1.) Every woman in the world is not trying to use sexual harassment as an accusation for everything. 2.) What is/was your purpose on commenting here in the first place? 3.) Maybe you can help others when being through what you´ve been through - by using your experience - but, in a constructive way - not in an abusive way, like you did.

    • Arkady Itkin
      Arkady Itkin  Year ago

      Being treated unfairly or being yelled at is not against the law, and EEO would not be the proper channel to address this with. This type of conduct is only illegal if there is specific evidence that the reason he does this is your age, sex, disability or one of the other protected classes. You should discuss this with an employment attorney.

    is there an email you can be reached at?


    do you have an email or number I was wrongfully searched because I had a bag of ruffles in my jacket and they said they have that product and I have suspicion to believe youre stealing and truth be told core mark international doesn't carry chips like those and the only write up I got were attendance they once tried to fire me over false allegations of threating a co-worker but never did I had been retaliating against their new unetheical policies and refused to comply with signing them and was also educating co-workers on their civil rights as well they didn't find anything on me but still suspended me for so called loss prevention what's even more upsurde is that I was supposed to go in to work on Wed but I knew if I did it was going to be attack after attack & it's been like this for about 7months now check this out though they had told me that that day wed we were going to talk to my manager and see where they're going to go from there and I felt like they were going to set me up so instead I used my last day of sick pay so that Thursday I could talk to hr about what's really been going on I have spoken to her about it before but she had told me to try and let my managers 1st handle it and if they cant that then she would but I tried to let my managers know but they'd just leave me alone for 3 days come back or just take turns between the 3 of them question can they suspend you after I had already requested my paid sick and they clearly hadn't suspended me yet my co-worker even said I was on the roster but not on the paid sick she let them know I called in sick and then an hour later I get told I'm suspended core mark is a 18 billion dollar company with over 3000 employees help me plz I've been the only person to speak up for those with no voice I can't help it my heart just tells me that I have no other choice

      EL MEXICAN MALCOM X Year ago

      Arkady Itkin so you don't think I'd be considered false imprisonment since after all both supervisors lied that the ruffles was not only their probable cause but literally one of the item that I had supposedly stole that they don't even carry I told them multiple times what was their burden of proof and all they could point to was the ruffles that they don't actually carry but lied and told me if I left that's grounds for termination and u told them that's B's if you're going to search me you better search everyone else coming out of here and they just ignored me and I ended up having to comply they had no cameras to prove anything just hehersay smh it got to the point I told one of them to their face that I will not tolerate disrespect & I will most definitely tolerate even disrespecting myself & that I know why you guys are targeting me your targeting me because I'm finally starting to stand up for myself and the supervisor that searched me two weeks before that told me he was going to get me for any company policy who could possibly get me for I could probably even get munipulive confession by telling him oh really you didn't well I even have it all recorded because I know he'd instantly say that it's against the law and then I'd say yes that is but it's not against the law to record your confession or is it? and lastly what are your views on jury nulifcation and also appointed judge trustee that try to pose as the public benificary isn't that in someway unconstitutional I thought unalienable meant unalienable..

      Hello. I am sorry but this is not something we can help with. Generally, such false accusations by security are not worth pursuing legally (except limited circumstances where there is false imprisonment, assault / battery, etc.) For more information, you are welcome to e-mail

    Good stuff dude a cognitive example is always helpful. I am a believer though that usually the angry or emotional person is the one who is telling the truth because they are in shock of the crap being presented, unfortunately today though that when that happens it becomes a lost cause after expressing your feelings because they then evaluate that as evidence of probable guilt which is !@#$%^&* because it is only natural to get upset when your accused of something you dont agree with, whether or not a person gets upset should have little or no bearing at all as it should only be about the facts and can it be proven

    • Arkady Itkin
      Arkady Itkin  2 years ago

      I agree. Feeling and anger is understandable but because the outside decision makers (attorneys, judge, jury) are not present at the scene where it all started, they only get to see the second part of the picture - the angry reaction, and not the cause. This rarely, if ever, help the victim / claimant.

    i tried that , was seeing girl form 9 months she claimed harassment, i had not deposition no investigation , i was there 11 years and her then less then a year, and anger is an emotion and i was angry after i found out what happened and being angry does not in any way imply your making up stories , i tend to think someone who is angry may be the won telling the truth , ive been telling the truth from the start and i could show that she was lying , not that we did not have a relationship and not that things got heated for a moment it was just the bold face lies she said about me and i could prove it..and the best part is something else i can prove hands down is that my bosses already knew we were having issues and did nothing for almost 10 days as far as i know then he lied about when he knew and so did his other upper manager , it for personal reasons , i believe people think im making up story's but i can back up what i say with documents . what ive learned when it comes to this and that is the truth gets you know where is something , you say how can you believe someone who lies or has a history of lies , well i can tell you this the courts do not care i can prove hands down this lady has lied many times and on many court documents , and it just dosnt matter ..its a joke , ive lost everything and continue to lose , crap i even have a right to sue from the eeoc and its as worthless as the paper its written on , been turned down over 60 times and not one looked at the evidence i have ..its absolutely a joke the way i have been treated
