Martinez, CA Denise's co-workers and a few of her bosses made life so miserable for her that she had no choice but to resign. "The bosses accepted my resignation and, as per our contract, I gave three weeks notice," says Denise. "But the office manager said, 'Why don't you just leave now, because you were just fired.' I was in shock." The next day Denise asked if her final check was ready and the boss said it was sent by certified mail - a violation of the California labor law.
