I was just terminated for the follow issues; 1. Having unauthorized guests visit me in the shelter, duing my shift hours. 2. Being outside the shelter for a short period of time, leavng the program unstaffed. 3. Leaving the incoming laundry to sit for an extended period of time before putting it away. 4. Addressing residents in an inappropriate manner, using a harsh tone clling out a resident in the 10.9.12 house meeting, making statement like "I'm in charge, this is my show," and calling residents "motherf**kers" openly on the floor. 5. Sleeping at the front desk while on shift (6:40pm, 10/9/12) and 6. Canceling a residents reservation without cause (8:30pm 10/1/12. First, I've been employeed with this organization for over 10yrs, I just recieved my performance evaluation about 6 months ago and it was 5's 4's & 3's it did not say anything about these issues pluse I was never offered supervision or progressive discipline. I explained to my supervisior that on 10/9/12 I took some medication for my back which was hurting me and that's why I nodded off. When I requested proof of these other issues, management had none, they stated their proof was verbal reports. Can they terminate me with giving me progressive discipline and are these issues terminatable? Do I have a unlawful termination case?
I'm not an at will employee. I belong to a union.
