I was placed on administrative leave today without pay with

Hello, I was placed on administrative leave today without pay with an appointment to HR next week to see if they will keep me unemployment or put me on some type of administrative action.I received no written paperwork of what I did wrong. In fact, I am in a six-month introductory period where I am in month five. Last week was my first check in with my boss since several months. She was very rude with me and basically said I was being trained by a person in a lower position than myself and a concern that I had earlier in the beginning of my employment of not having a preceptor was unfounded and she said that I would not have a preceptor and they would probably never have a preceptor in the unit. Today when I received my administrative leave letter from her and HR she said in front of him that they had concerns that my knowledge in the EMR (what we do here)was not up to par. I was shocked, and I went home.And I have several questions that I sent to HR and wanted to get your thoughts. I asked HR what type of evaluation did they use to evaluate my lack of EMR knowledge. I also asked why I was put on administrative leave without pay and not having any type of written reasons or anything leading up to this since I was not checked in with for several months. The administrative paperwork says I may have broken a policy, I believe today HR was saying it was about my six-month introductory period. I also asked them that if my lack of knowledge in the EMR was so lacking then why was I able and allowed to train a superuser class the week before, create curriculums and basically work independently like my peers? I let them know that my first two months of check and my supervisor had said everything was fine. I also reminded them that my immediate supervisor had just returned this week from having been gone the whole month. So again I asked what does that hospital do for evaluations? Am I being valuated like everyone is evaluated?I also asked HR that if they have a policy of being put on administrative leave for management personal reasons. Although I don't have proof I feel this is a personal reason and not a skilled reason. Especially since there's no paperwork or even evaluations for my skills. Is there anything I can do about this? I most likely do not want to work here anymore since this happened however I don't want to be pushed around either.I am in several protected classes(female, Hispanic, gay) and this is an at will employment employer. As far as I know there has been no complaints about me.

I have a new area coordinator in a new district,but since I have been placed there I have been harassed, lied about, and my car was spray painted.

They have not written me up, but I am treated with a lot of hostility.JA: The Employment Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yet I am keeping a file.

I have written multiple statements to the Hr dept about my Boss verbally harassing me and the regional manager that comes to do the investigation keeps protecting her by reporting false feedback from the rest of the staff members she interviews. I know this because i over heard the answer one of the staff members was giving her was to the effect that the way our Boss yells at people and slams doors in peoples faces is uncalled for and unprofessional and yet when the regional manager reports back with me and human resources on the call she says that no body backs up anything i claim she does. What can i do to get my voice heard? everybody else is scared for their jobs and are afraid to say anything and human resources is doing nothing to help all they do is agree with what the regional manager finds during her so called investigation.

Last Friday I was told I would be terminated from by position

Last Friday I was told I would be terminated from by position as a Registered Nurse in a Doctor's Office. I have only been there for 3 months and during that time I have been harassed, humiliated, and worked under hostile conditions with Office Manager.JA: Got it. The Employment Lawyer will know how to help you. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: No.JA: Please tell me everything you can about this issue so the Employment Lawyer can help you best. Is there anything else the Employment Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: I worked as a Registered Nurse for 8 years with Memorial Hospital which is part of UCC Health in Colorado Springs. Last March, 2015 I had to have back surgery. I was on Short Term Disability for 9 months before returning to work. After Surgery I have had continued back pain and my doctor said the pain was exasperated by being on my feet 12 hrs ad day when working my shift and he advised that I ask management for a position with less hours and not having to be on my feet for 12 hours. Hospital HR agreed to help me find this type of nursing job. The job they found was in a Doctors Office. I was qualified for the position having worked in another doctors office before going to work at the hospital. Almost from day one the Office Manager harassed me, did not provide proper training and basically was doing everything she could to make my life miserable. The former Registered Nurse had quit this position for the same treatment. Last Friday, she and the HR representative for the hospital notified me that I was being terminated. The said I would be on Administrative Leave until they could put together the Termination Document. Do not know what to expect in this document but am devastated by having my 20+ years career as a Registered Nurse terminated because an Office Manager did not like me. She told me not to work any overtime because I was too expensive. Think she disliked me from the start because I made more money than she did. Do you have any advise for me before I have to meet with HR and not knowing what kind of Termination Agreement they may ask me to sign. I am very concerned what this may do in my being able to get a new job.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.

A Board of Directors places an Executive Director on administrative

A Board of Directors places an Executive Director on administrative leave (verbally) to investigate a whistleblower claim. The claim has no founding. The Board of Directors has a history of constant communication with the staff to undermine the Executive Directors authority which has caused a hostile environment. The Board President will not communicate with the Executive Director and the ED has been on admin leave for 1 month.The whistleblower claim was from an employee of 1 month that was still under probation.In the meantime, the Board is operating the non profit and not allowing the staff to talk with the Executive Director. Is there a breach of contract due to the Board not doing their duties and overstepping the ED's rights to oversee the staff. Additionally, the whistleblower was not suspended during the investigation -so the whistleblower was running the agency during the ED's absence.
