I am a first level manager with AT&T and we have been notified our department is affected by sir plus. I am eligible for retirement. The packages do include severance pay
but my concern is I am working in a hostile
environment due to a grievance against my manager and her manager for Placing me on disciplinary action
due to a defective laptop and not submitting for my FMLA
to be approved. Last Lee is I have been put in under a final warning for violating code of business conduct it which would never have happened if management have not put me in that position. I was never contacted by HR to explain the situation or provide documentation. I can no longer focus on my job due to constant harassment from my immediate manager and the area manager. The grievance appears to be in my favor however she cannot address the code of business conduct and sent it is handled by a different area of HR. We have the option to send met yes for voluntary Sir plus which I am considering due to my work environment. Would I lose my severance option by submitting a voluntary siurplus? Lastly could I am manager terminate me before I submit for a voluntary sir plus? If so do I lose my severance as well as my retirement benefits?
JA: Because employment law
varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Atlanta Georgia
JA: Is the employment agreement "at will
," union, full time or part time?
Customer: Management is not union. It is a full-time position. We recently moved to this location February 1. I am not sure what you mean by is the employment agreement at will
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: If I walk in to work on Monday and my manager terminate me while a grievance is still active or are they able to terminate me while a grievance is still active If I submit for voluntary sir plus can I still receive my severance and retirement benefits?
