    Can you place a company's name that acts illegally and unethical on the Internet to warn others if so where?I was hired as a Location Manager for a logistics company that had not yet opened the doors.I was hired to do A-Z because of a 500 mile distance and no business plan. I felt the owners stature as a professional athlete would substantiate the risks of working with a start up company. Now I feel like I was robbed of time and lots of money. Durring the first 2 weeks I sold the vision of the company to new clients and signed them for a year. There was no eqiptment or furniture as I was told that I would order this. On the first pay date my check was 5 days late. The owner assured me that it was a mistake I believed him. I hired 2 new warehouse workers to do the daily physical shipping and receiving of products with no furniture or warehouse equiptment. The owner became distant and unavailable and by the 2nd pay date w/ no paycheck I decided 60 hrs. w/ no pay was too much. I resigned. I received my check. 13 days later he issued a stop pay. I have filed suit but can I warn others if so how?

    If the company is acting illegally then you can report them for criminal offenses to the property investigators. If it is only unethical behavior then your lawsuit may need to suffice.

    If you publicly post negative comments about the company then you may become the target of a libel action. But if you still want to do this then check out the link below.

    I would suggest you report them to the Better Business Bureau. They have a web site at http://www.bbb.org

    They would be the best place to start anyway. Sorry to hear about your troubles. Good luck.References :

  4. I would definitely turn them in to the better business bureau. Not sure about the legality of posting a warning about them on the Internet. But I think if what you post about them is true than it wouldn’t be considered slander.References :

    Companies illegally operating must be posted on the internet so that people will be warned not to patronize its products or become its employees.References :
