I've been employed by a well known company since last August.My direct report was also new (just a few months into the job) and did not provide enough guidance in my role, nor I was presented with goals to be met. She was constantly asking my peers (also subordinates) for answers on what to do on a daily basis.HR approached me, questioning my boss' knowledge etc, and at the time, requested by the team - but I could not make a fair judgement.My 1st week, the junior associate quit and I had to replace him to focus on a smaller - but with extreme exposure to customer facing + rest of the company - and unfortunately made some wide spread mistakes. I immediately was labeled 'not to be trusted'. These mistakes were In most of part for lack of guidance, 3rd part vendors mistakes, but the trust was broken with the rest of my peers.This resulted me not being involved with the other parts my responsibilities - I was not trained or exposed in relevant tools, therefore I did not progress in the role that I was first hired for.
Feeling the lack of training, I reached out to HR and I was told to ask to be more involved, but my boss refused and isolated me even more in the process.The rest of team roles / responsibilities also shifted due to our Technology tool being updated/redesigned.Now I was given 2 options by HR:1st - A 30 plan:
- 30 days to meet goals that were originally on paper.
- If not met, I would be dismissed and not right to unemployment
.2nd - Severance plan (mutual):
- next Friday to be my in last the office
- 30 days severance pay
(on the books till March 1st)
- benefits extended till end of March
- unused 15 days vacation
- eligible to unemploymentI could not apply to any to other jobs in the companyQUESTION:
Do I have any grounds for more Severance pay?Thanks
