California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
If the law is broken, resulting circumstances are not considered?
Employer has been made aware of ongoing loan modification process several times throughout the last 26mos and also during the discussion for review of seperation, which included my direct reports' boss (bosses' boss) and HR Consultant on 7/12/2013. They were offerd this information again on 7/30/2013 and they could have resolved it on the spot, in person.
Coming from someone who cannot possibly understand what living paycheck to paycheck is like in this day and age, I find your answer offensive and rude. Sorry I wasted my time or didn't explain it right. There should be no variables - a gross and sloppy termination process resulted in my massive financial loss.
And is it legal to fire someone over the phone? Had this been done correctly, I would have been met with, issued a check that day and walked out, with my box and none of this would have ever happened. But instead, I am picking up piece after piece after piece.
I was very, very ill during my pregnancy in 2011. This was the purpose of the modification, so a backup/crisis fund doesn't exist for me. I have been making payments successfully and paid bills in full while only receiving 40-60% of my pay. I can't be expected to consider my empployer might just break the law, so I better have a backup plan! Seriously?
