I was let go 6-8-12, due to unsatisfaction job performance. I was hired as a manger 7-12-2010 never was wrote up, never was told I did not do my job, until consultants came in and took over the department. I had a great review by the director, which is no longer there due to the consultants as well. I was told that my review was changed by the VP of revenue cycle which was my director boss. In April 2012 I was told I was having problems with a process that the consultants had for the managers to do, and was told I was losing my manager job and was being demoted to an account assistant. I never was told I was on probation for this job. There is so much more, but I wanted to say that I received sepration Papers saying I will not be considered for rehire!!!!! This is not fair to have put this on my records. I am sorry I know I do not have a leg to stand on but I lost my job because consultants came in. This was a set up putting me on this other job, got very little training(but of course to them I got training) not 30mins one day then 30 mins another day. I also got in trouble for asking questions about this job working with Motor vehcile that I have never done in my life. I worked as a supervisor for another company and was there for 16 years and worked there again for 16 years. I feel I was set up because they had no reason to fire me they wanted me out because I went to the new director and said to her I didn't feel it was right to write me up . I was told several times that the Med Pay had 40Million dollars aqnd if I could not do this job she would get someone else who can. I feel I was threaten and I worked 2 months under pressure and fear every day I was goinjg to get fired. Every day they kept putting more and more work on me so I did not have time to do everything. I could keep going but I know I do not have a chance, I am so upswet over the fact this is goinjg to be on my records of not be rehired so how will someone lese hire me.
Nothing, I just got the seperation papers this week-end
Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification.
This is an unfortunate situation, in this case, if you have an Employment Contract, you could sue the employer for a wrongful Termination.
If you believe that the termination was based upon your race, gender, age, or other protected civil right, then you can file a discrimination complaint against the employer as well.
If you do not belong to a Union, and had no contract, and the termination was not based upon your protected civil rights, then your legal options are limited, as employers are allowed to terminate an employee for any reason, except if it violates any of the above mentioned.
No I do not belong to a union, but I am 62 yrs old, This employer knew I needed my job as my husband is retired and we needed the insurance coverage. I feel that I was set up to fail and let go wrongfully. This employee has done this to several peoplesince I was there. To me no one should be able to let someone go because they do not like you or because you said hgow you feel. There is so much more to this.
What I would consider is filing an age discrimination complaint against the employer, by doing this, even if you have limited evidence, the employer may try to settle with you, or offer you a good severance.
The problem with this type of termination is if you do not have an employment contract or are part of a Union, you have limited if any legal rights to challenge the termination, unless it is due to your race, gender, age or other protected civil rights.
