I work fairly large retailer. I was asked by my Store

Customer Question

I work for a fairly large retailer. I was asked by my Store Manager to assume a full-time role in outside sales because I have numerous contacts, all of whom are close friends, who use large volumes of our products for big commercial applications.
The company then replaced the store manager and the new guy will no longer allow me to sell on the outside. I have lost all credibility with my friends whose business I had secured. Obviously, they feel betrayed.
Can I sue my uncaring company for the severe damage done to my reputation?

Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.

What you describe is indeed extremely uncaring and highly exploitive. However, it just does not violate any laws. So , from a legal standpoint there would not typically be anything you can do. All you can do is try to mend your reputation and be more careful about tapping into personal contacts for employers int he future.

I hope that you find this information helpful and am genuinely sorry if it is not what you were hoping to hear. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the above and I will be more than happy to assist you further.
