I am a 69 year old man who has been employed by the same organization for almost 20 years on a fulltime basis. I was recently taken aside and told they had information that i was in a conflict of interest position. 2 days later I was told i could either retire or they would terminate my employment. i was given no evidence or ability to voice my side of the story. I was given no severance.
My employer literally just fired me today because “my disability stood in the way of me excelling at my job”. He had tried to find me other placement inside the factory but when the proved difficult, they decided to just let me go. Was wondering if this was legal or ok at all? Or should they have found me more suitable placement?
I have worked the same job as a restaurant server for almost 12 years and the same shifts for 8. they recently hired a new manager who wants to serve as well as manage. she has scheduled herself my shift and says that's how it will be now the boss above her said that's how it will be too. I was not given any notice this would happen and it constitutes a 10% pay cut and a demotion in position . now they are saying only every second week but still this is likely a $2000 a year pay cut and still a demotion. what are my rights in this situation. I have no contract but have full time benefits and this will drop me to about 50 hours every two weeks. mostly its the embarrassment of being demoted after 8 years and no problems.
My last three paychecks have bounced. My employer has come good for one but not the others. He says that he has made an EFT but no deposit in my account. Pay week is this week and I have zero confidence that that this check will clear. He currently owes me over $9000.00 I do some work from home as well as at the office, can I refuse to make the one hour drive and work from?
