I have worked for a company for five years. I was fired because " I wasn't a good fit". I am a women and had women in my work place that did not like me. I had done a lot for my work place and brought in a lot of business. Every time they said I couldn't do something. I did it . They were jealous. I even made it on the national news. I work with one manager and he never did anything to resolve the issue. The girls went to another manager in the same city and he started the ball rolling with the Human Resource office in another city. He failed to inform the office that he had a sexual encounter with one of the girls and was still infatuated with her. Back to my manger. He never wrote me up for anything. I was nominated twice the past two years for employee of the year for a pretty big national company. I also have to add that my manager made sexual advancements towards me in the last couple of months. We do not have an HR manager in the city. The managers handle everything. There for I felt like I had no place to go for help.
I was fired on a leave of absence for “not effectively communicating” with the work place while on a medical leave of absence. That was stated in the letter. Is that allowed?
I used to drive a dump truck for a small company with 2 trucks. I have been terminated from job without any notice. Just being told we don’t need you anymore as we have found a new driver on less pay rate. Is there any way that I can get paid for this at least for minimum notice period.
I was on a medical leave for a little over 2 1/2 years. I got approval from my doctor to return and my contact person through LTD created an 8 week return to work plan. My workplace kept putting it off and then asked me to attend a meeting in which they fired me. They accused me of trying to have a relationship with a client at work which I know never happened and have no idea where they came up with that idea. I wasnt allowed to ask any questions or be given any details so I basically was told I was guilty by them without a chance to even defend myself. From my Google searches I have learned that a workplace can fire you basically for whatever they want whenever they want, but I just want that to be confirmed by someone else. I find it odd that such accusations can be warranted without me being made aware of them but o understand that bosses have all the power and can do what they want. I was offered 3 months pay to never speak of what happened and to pretend that I was treated fairly by them. I think that's what bothers me the most...being offered money but having to lie about why i got it. I prefer to do things honestly which is why this feels so wrong to me. Thanks for your help in advance :)
