California Employment Law Questions Answered by Legal Experts
Yes, I voluntarily resigned my position, then retired. I have no proof that I was forced into resigning.other than I was pressured by two high ranking individuals from CUSD (Clovis Unified School District) to "consider retirement before I make a mistake that I could be fired from" . My husband and mother in law were present during the conversations that encouraged me to resign. I felt as if I had little choice. I feel that it was intimated that if I didn't retire, they could fire me on that day if they deemed I would not agree with them. My mother in law was an administrator/surpervisor in CUSD, and was involved herself with hiring and firing. Do I have any recourse with the ADA provisions or lawy, or any other organization? I also have MS, and the administrators knew about that also. My cognitive abilities have been questioned as having been okay to work.
