Customer: March 8th I received my performance review by my manager who had only been in the position for 5 months. She didn't like me and decided to write bad things on my review. In addition to that I had start having some health issues so I decided to take some time off. I contacted my previous boss and explain everything that happened and he advised me to contact HR. I did so an HR advised me that they would look into the false claims
on my performance review and and I have had them that my doctor has placed me on leave until further notice. I sent them the FMLA paperwork that was approved and was out for 37 days. I return back to work April 18th it was advised that I will then have a new manager. I met with my new manager last week and he advised me that I will no longer be the team lead and he will be taking over my duties and would like me to be a regular agent
JA: Got it. The Employment Lawyer will know how to help you. Is there anything else important you think the Employment Lawyer should know?
Customer: At this point I don't know what to do given the fact that I've never had a bad review outside of the one that my previous manager gave me
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Employment Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
Customer: I do feel like it's a form of retaliation
because I was on leave due to health reasons
