Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
My name is John. I have over 13 years of legal and counseling experience in these types of matters, and I’m happy to assist you with your question today. I’m sorry to hear about your termination of employment.
I'll need to ask you some preliminary questions before I can give you an answer to your question. Are you in a union or do you otherwise have a contract for "just cause" (as opposed to “at will" employment which is the default employment condition)? Do you think the manager who demoted you had an ulterior motive in demoting you, perhaps your age, race, gender, disability or religious beliefs?
Yes I am in an organization that would be considered a union. I am under a contract. No I believe I was demoted due to what some would calm the buddy system.
