I am seeing my lawyers later this week. However, I want to get some information early. I started a casual relationship with a girl from work. We tried to keep it relatively secret, but word got out to two of my superiors. One of my superiors has a thing for me, an attraction since I started and has made this known to me in the past on several occasions. I have been subtle in doing so, but I have rejected her feelings. Now that she knows about the girl and I having a relationship, I feel she may take this very personally and seek to get rid of me. I don't have a contract and work as a casual. My questions: Under Employment Law, can she legally force me to resign or fire me for having a relationship with another woman from work? If she spreads word of this to anyone else at work, it could become a nasty and massive problem with other colleagues so, if my superiors tell other colleagues about my relationship, can I do anything legal about that? My lawyers, on the phone, said something about Character Assassination. Can I take legal action because her parents felt the need to call my employers of our relationship when they had no right to?
