Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
My previous evaluations are exceptional, and have been for the past four and half years. This was an isolated incident. I actually have a contract with the state of New York. The agency in question is the fiscal agent that houses the coaltion/grant that I work out of. I am not sure if the Executive Director has the ability to fire me since I was accepted and hired by the state. Also, I would be o.k. with a brief probation period but not a reduction in pay. Advise.
It is a bit tricky because it is a federal and state grant position, so I am not really an employee by the state. I was however approved by them and signed a contract. Another side note; The day of the incident, I was impaired because of the new SSRI I was taking. I did request going to the wellness center but was allowed to walk home while having a grand mal seizure to an empty house no less. I am going in for my appt. at 2:30 and want to be armed with some legal advice.
