My son (18) was fired abruptly yesterday for taking a break and eating before his shift got busy. The rule was not to eat between 6-9pm and it was prior to this time. He received no prior warning (verbal or written) and the owner cursed and yelled at him and told him to leave.
I worked for a company for 1 years and 5 months as Order Fullfillment Specialist. In the pass, They removed me from full-time Order Fulfillment Specialist to 50% of order processing and 50% Misc. such as answering the phone, greeting Client, sending sample, etc. However, we got busy again, and was back as full-time Order Fullfillment Specialist for awhaile. However, I am told that company Is being restructuring again. This time, I think they are going re-do my job description and probably get me to sign it? I told them that I was hired as full time Order Desk and I like to keep it that way. I said I do not like doing the Misc. task. Do I have a choice? Can I refuse to do the misc. tasks? I saw the web that they are hiring Order Fullfillment Specialist again. I feel like they are demoting me or a way to force me resign. Please advise
I was fired in the middle of a open harassment case again my district manager to which I was witness on a number of incidents. I believe this is why I was let go. I had two write ups for one issue that was no longer an issue, this was there reason for dismissal, they had to pay me out severance and in lieu of pay for 20 weeks. Would this classify as a wrongful dismissal?
