  • Indian Casino in Cali - harrasment/hostile work environment?

    I was recently fired from a local Indian casino very abruptly. In a short sudden meeting I was told I was a liar and my performance was bad and that it would be to hard to retain my position so I need to transfer or leave. I was told my email to him were to unprofessional, my grooming was not up to par and I didn’t let him know if I was going to be late (even though he was not at work & I notified the appropriate people). Also that I was leaving my shift to early even though I was working the shift hours of the previous person doing my shift, and I was never actually given any shift hours from him.

    He did not have problems with other employees who had far worse grooming then me, other employees who were late did the same and he didn’t talk to them, one my ex co-workers writes nasty emails to him but he didn't care about those. One worker even got caught having relations with an employee below her and didn’t get in trouble.

    he had been using security camera recording to watch what I was doing, but he never watched anyone else.

    He never listed any performance problems, and stated that he was going to give me procedures to go by to improve, but never got any then was fired for 'no change in performance or values' a week later.

    I told the person who had hired me that I had felt harassed and was a hostile work environment but never heard anything back.

    Is there anything I can do being it was on Indian land?

    US and state laws do not apply on tribal land. You will have to ask an attorney who is versed in tribal law what, if any, options you have.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
