Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Legally, can I file a grievance against my employer for not being able to hire enough employees to get the job done and making me perform those duties? I'm a very good GM but am struggling to do all the other jobs that they now require. I've expressed to my boss and his boss that due to the extra responsibilities I now have, I can't get everthing done that they want. They haven't offered to let me hire my people. I'm stressed out to the max.
Thank you for your response. One more question, what is considered a protected class?
I am 57 years old and I can't go like I used to. It's a little harder trying to juggle my admin duties and working in the field at my age. Would this issue be something that I could raise to my employer? Would it really matter anyway given the past answers you gave?
