We have a new GM that started at my company. I am the maintenance manager. New he is demoting me to bring in a new person. This person must be a friend because when he had him come to for a interview he was was raving on how good this person is and paraded him around to everyone. My GM told me this is what he is looking for in a manager, I sat down with him and told him that he has never told what he was looking for and never gave me the opportunity to be the manager he wants. so now this person will stat in in a couple of weeks and I will be demoted.
State/Country relating to question: New York
Talked with my GM
Unfortunately, under NY law, employment is considered to be at will. This means the employer is free to hire, fire, promote or demote an employee for no reason or for any reason at all except solely based on the age/race/sex/disability of the employee. Thus, you would not have any cause of action against the employer unless you can prove that you were discriminated against based only on your age/race/sex/disability I am sorry to say.
