I was placed on paid administrative leave on February 17th

I was placed on paid administrative leave on February 17th for "timecard mismanagement." This past Friday, I was contacted for the first time by my new director, who ordered me to return to work on Monday (today). I was offered no explanation. In the several weeks I was on PAL I was never contacted by HR for the so-called "investigation. I feel my professional was damaged and I do not feel comfortable returning to work, at least without some professional courtesy or explanations. Do Ihave any rights?

Attoney, After two weeks of waiting for the investigation of

Hi Attoney John,After two weeks of waiting for the investigation of my employer while I was placed on administrative leave with pay I finally received a call from my supervisor and HR telling me that that they are terminating my employment on the 23rd of February,2017. I told them that I really need a job and that I will start to search for employment as a phlebotomist. I'm concern that they might hear a negative information that will prevent me from getting employed. I've told that if i'm asked the reason for leaving LabCorp I'll have to say the company is downsizing. HR said that the information they will release is the first and last day of my employment. I really do feel that my termination is unfair. The second time of my mis ID the patient was caught early and was corrected. They still used that to caused my termination. I asked my supervisor for given me another chance and I want to keep my job, she said it will be up to the HR now. My question now is if I can appeal to get my job back at LabCorp?

As I mentioned before,the HR staff and my supervisor came to

As I mentioned before,the HR staff and my supervisor came to my work site around 1430 on the 9th of Feb. They took my badge and door keys and told me that i will be placed on administrative leave for investigation for two days starting Feb.10,2017. They sent me home early that day on the 9th of Feb. Today is Feb.21.1017 and still haven't hear anything from my supervisor nor from HR. I contacted HR on the 14th of Feb.to check the status of my situation. I was told that my supervisor was on vacation on the 13 thru 15 and will return on the 16th.I was directed by HR to call the regional supervisor to talk to. I called and left messages. On the 16th I called and talked to my supervisor regarding the status of my situation and she said she haven't heard anything yet from HR and the investigation is still going. Friday,the 17th I called again and she said that not to call her and that she will call me back as soon she heard anything from HR. Today is the 21st of Feb. they still haven't call. I want to go back to work. I'm just wondering this lenght of time that I have been on administrative leave will lead to my termination. If it does I feel that its unfair on my part. I have seen co staff makes mistakes and nothing happened. I've been with LabCorp for 15 years. I like my job and want to keep it untill I retire. I need to know what are my rights and if it looks like I'm gonna be terminated?Thank you ,looking forward for your immediate respond.Marietta de Guzman

I work for a quasi-governmental organization in FL and have

I work for a quasi-governmental organization in FL and have been placed on unpaid administrative leave for alleged wrongful adjustments made to employee time cards. The adjustments in question are approved by my manager. No action has been taken against him, even though he's aware the adjustments are being made and approves the time records. Why would the company put me on unpaid leave and not discipline him in any way? He has not been adversely affected by this...why?

I'm a phlebotomist,working for LabCorp, I was placed on administrative leave due to mislabelled specimen on a patient that I drew which was immediately discovered before the specimen go out the lab for testing. I immediately called the patient to come back to the lab for a redraw and patient came back two hours later and was drawn ( the blood drawn that day earlier with the wrong labelled was discarded). This incident was used to placed me on administrative leave with pay. I'm a good and hardworking employee. I have been with the company for a year. My recent annual job performance evaluation is above standard. Can this be use by the company to get me terminated. I feel that this is not fair to lead this incident for termination of my employment.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: San Diego CaliforniaJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: I'm not sure,but we are not with unionJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I made one mistakes about 3 months ago on a urine specimen that was sent to the lab testing site on a urine transport media I wrote kelly instead of kathy on one of the transport media ( sent along with the requisition form).
