Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
I am not sure if I can only be terminated for cause.
I do feel like I am being targeted to some extent based on race (I am the only black person in my unit) and maybe past FMLA use. I am also the oldest person in my unit. I work for UTMB in dialysis at the XXXXX XXXXX Medical Facility which is a prison.
So, before I go, what you're saying is that ultimately I need to contact HR and file a claim with them? The only problem I have with that is that my HR rep and my supervisor are very good friends and I don't think that I will be treated fairly.
Okay, thank you for your help. I will take your advice and pray for the best
