Would a defamation lawsuit be against me even if it was reported by a random person or coworker. I have a few more questions.they said if they re hired me I would be on a 9 month attendance probation, which is retaliation
. And they seem to be trying to make it very difficult and I feel like if they offer me reemployment it will be with no back pay.If either or both of these things come up, should I1- "reject" (lack of a better term) their offer and try to ask for the backpay I'm entitled to and no probation. And if they decline should I just say I'm not comfortable with those conditions and go contact an attorney. Can they turn that into me turning down my job offered
2-accept the job back and then pursue my back pay and no probation. Or could they consider that me accepting what they offered and I don't get those things.Also what should I do if they have any type of attorney/legal team member present?I was hoping to attempt to solve this issue at the lowest level, but because they will likely deny me what I'm entitled to, and they have been very disrespectful and treated me like someone who was in jail or just not coming into work as opposed to a soldier serving their country I wanted to possibly pursue more than my lost wages
but could I pursue extra if they offer my job lost wages and no probation right from the start solely on the fact they violated my rights? Would contacting the DOJ be my first step in either instance?Last question.
The only thing I've found they could argue is I did not directly contact my human resources before my leaves. My termination
was for absence time only.I notified my supervisor and the person incharge of scheduling with plenty of time to make arrangements. This topic was briefly brought up early on but I haven't heard about this issue again, the hr person told me it was policy to report directly to them once this issue started but according to the company handbook
"employee must make arrangements with supervisor before going on duty..." is all it states under military leave time which I have done.I really appreciate all of your help on this subject. I have been very stressed dealing with this.
