With no warning, i was fired on 18 April 2017. I was told that I didn't communicate. Later was informed by a co-worker that there was a meeting held and the firing supervisor told them "I want someone younger, who understands the programming".. The supervisor had never bothered to discover what I did or didn't understand or could do. Also there was never any counceling about communicating, nor was there a letter to me. Do I have a leg to stand on to file a grievance? Up to that day, I was doing the work expected of me and then some.

I was on medical leave due to an age discrimination age

I was on medical leave due to an age discrimination age against me last year in my previous dept.. I filed a complaint with the DFEH and it will be going into investigation within 30-45 days. I returned to work to a different dept only to find out that the supervisor who discriminated against me previously was once again my supervisor. During my interactive meeting I requested to be transferred to another dept. I was told by HR there was not any vacant positions. Is couple days later I found that my Employer advertises an Accountant position on indeed.com and monster.com. I m n accountant and feel they purposely withheld the job from me as a retaliatory move so I was forced to go back to the same supervisory if I wanted to keep my job.I returned to work on the request to work a modified schedule so I can transition into my new position. I was told by HR that they will give me 3 weeks to transition and that I will need to work with my Doctor to enable me to work full time by May 1. In addition, on the 3rd day I returned I was put on a pip. These retaliatory moves have made me uncle to perform my job due to stress and. Hostile work environment because I feel my employer is punishing me for filing a discrimination case with DFEH claim against them last year. My counselor, psychiatrist and doctor have told me to file a workers comp case for the retaliatory moves. I already filed. Retaliation case with the DFEH.If I get terminated for filing a workers comp case, does that in anyway cease my DFEH case from continuing to an investigation?I live in California

I have accepted a new position with a company and they was

I have accepted a new position with a company and they was contacted by my current employer saying I have a non compete agreement which I don't remember signing and I asked for a copy of it with my signature and date and never received it. I'm a at will employee that works in the mail room I don't have any customer personal information or trade secrets... The comonay I work for is a staffing agency and their contract ends with the client on March 31st and Canon is taking over so I applied for a receptionist position and got it. I feel like I'm being discriminated against because three other employees have moved to Canon starting today and didn't wait the 6 months and nothing was said about them at all as far as the non compete.. I feel like its unfair to do that only to 1 employeeJA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MissouriJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: At willJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: No

Next month will be 41 years my wife has worked for her

Next month will be 41 years my wife has worked for her company, the past 30 years in senior management. She has never had a negative review and has always been "exceeds" or "meets" in every category. She has never been written up for any infractions. She is 58 years old. She heads up a department that in 2016 had record profits for the company. Yesterday she was called into her bosses office and told that the company was re-organizing and that her position was being eliminated. This seems to smack of age discrimination and a way to replace a highly compensated employee with cheaper labor after years of faithful service. The company also let about a dozen other people go, many were younger, but mostly in middle management.

I am 56 year old female. I have worked for just bit over 2

I am 56 year old female. I have worked for just bit over 2 years for a very strict, mean, rude owner who lives in another city from the property I manage. Do see usually once a week or so.7 mos ago I brought in a 27 yr old male past coworker.Within in 3 mos owner was speaking to him about being a manager. (Original plan was he was to move into a front desk supervisor/mgr..my assistant as had been dicussed). Has no supervisor or management experience.First clue something going on---In February I found out owner changed my email recoveries for the office. Also managed to get in "my" personal google account, locking me out of my personal email and showed as a "connected device" in "my" personal email.(My fault, I had created a work email using my personal email for recovery and somehow both emails linked to my Google account..enabling him to gain access..?) nothing to hide but just upsetting and felt like he was being scandalous..maybe firing me soon, made me feel ill.This owner is unable to be pleased, always wants more out of you and never gives verbal appreciation. I have made great improvements over past years for him.Second clue--- same time frame..I knew of a expected pay conversation with this employee and owner ( to be my assistant..?).When I asked employee how it went, he beat around bush and basically said he did not want to displace the trust owner gave him. Hmm...**soon found out he has this employee doing General Manager training on our companies online university.(Not the same as 10000 class, but a step towards)Owner has been nastier than usual, yells, is demeaning and nik-picks me each week.I recently decided to tell him I wanted to take a vaca week and maybe the following mon, tues due to flight being much cheaper.Owner said to me-- "you can take 2 or 3 weeks off, I don't care" "will talk soon about your wages, if I have to pay 2 managers there will be changes, I can't be paying both of you". Says he will talk to the other employee about what responsibilities he will take on and that we would be having another conversation concerning my change in pay....! He must be planning on taking my vaca away from me-- no pay.? I haven't been off a week since march 2016. Never signed any contracts nor does he have employee manual. Only email saying outline of position, mentions bonuses and vaca time.Also then told me to quit using the work email I created my first week over 2 years ago and is in my business cards...?I work my butt off for this guy. Required to work 6 days a week 8 plus hours, cover shifts also. Nomal work 110 plus. Have stayed these 2 years because didn't see him often, need the money, does do nice bonuses at times and I love the business itself.Trying to hang in there-- thinking he going to fire me, last Manager was offered $12. (Was 40000). Asst position.- he then quit after training me. I was 5th manager in 12 mos period. Think longest he's ever kept or maybe it is.. dumb enough to stay.Kind of embarrassing, humiliating, sad, mad. Worked to hard to be treated badly and worried bout monies. Hard to continue to be a good worker and train my replacement...Obviously would love to quit...Looking for any advice.... Will I get unemployment if I don't except his change in my pay or if I quit because of the whole situation? Train my replacement?Age discrimination. Or sex discrimination.Our scores and rankings are good, no bad complaints on me as a manager and he has never written me up for anything.Thanks for reading... Appreciate your thoughtsTriciaC
