California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Thank you. I was an at will employee, no union. It is a small insurance brokerage. However, I was treated very aggressively and constantly talked to inappropriately, even in our meeting with HR yesterday. I had excellent performance and was even said so in the meeting.
I did what I thought was best when I called the meeting with HR and the 2 oweners of the company.
They made it very clear they did not want to pay me on my bonus. I achieved the end result of bringing in new business. I even did my bosses jobs because they did not. There are many layers to this. I simply wanted us to work something out, but am forced to leave with the inappropriate things that are said to me. They very clearly pushed me out because I finally took action on the way I was treated.
