Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Thank you for your question, Susan. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.Ultimately this would be considered a potential 'for cause' termination since the termination was conditional on certain behavior, namely going back to school for a higher specialization. Since it then becomes a situation where the termination is 'for cause', unemployment would be denied as it is only granted generally to those who are terminated 'without cause' or without control on their end. Here, arguably you could have either transferred or gone back to school, and since both of those options are legitimate and you had longer than 2 years to accomplish it, I do not see unemployment upholding this as a valid petition.I am sorry!
do you charge me for every question?
sorry for the rating. just hoped i had a case. thought 16yrs counted for something.never drew an unemployment check.thanks for your honest report. so unprofessional of me.thanks again
gave no reason,just wanted all rns.in illinois is a offer to transfer a true job offer by law? ive done some research and it isn't in california
Susan,Thank you for your follow-up. Two issues:1. A bona fide job transfer is a job offer in Illinois provided the positions are similar or equivalent. A request for you to find a job transfer is NOT a job offer since that is an illusory promise, meaning there is nothing behind the claim--there is no job, merely a promise to find one. That, however, is not a violation--since the request that you find a transfer took place over 2 years ago, it is a known requirement permitting the employer to claim you were essentially contractual until that time, and not entitled to benefits. 2. The reason I asked about company concerns is if their claim or demand for education was only made to certain individuals, such as only women, or those over 40, then it could be discriminatory. Based on your facts I do not see that as the case but I wanted to evaluate it just in case.Good luck.
