Hello Patricia ---I am sorry to hear this. I am also sorry for the delay in responding to your question but as the evening wears on there are only a few attorneys online at any given time overnight (sometimes I am all alone). Can I ask a few questions ? -1. Are you a member of a union ? -2. Do you have a written contract with your employer setting out the terms of your employment and under what conditions they can terminate your position ? Such contracts are used for upper level employees in some industries and since you mentioned that you were in banking, I thought that I would ask to see if you have an employment contract. -MARY
