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.

We are a Florida based company (day care, nursery and

We are a Florida based company (day care, nursery and preschool up to Kindergarten) and we employee teachers. We hired a new employee 2 weeks ago and since her hire she has missed 11 days of work. About one week after hire, she advised us that has MS and is being treated by a physician and has since missed the 11 days of work. We asked her earlier this week to provide documentation from her doctor that she is under his care. She resisted this request and we still do not have any confirmation. We are a small business and rely on all employees. We clearly do not want to discriminate because of her illne, however what are our options?

I have been told I am being replaced for no good reason. I

I have been told I am being replaced for no good reason. I owed a substantial amount of money which I do not want to lose out on. I have been given no notice of my employment status and the new guy starts on this upcoming Monday. What advice would you give me. It should also be noted that I have not been given written reviews in violation of the company's stated policy. I feel I am being discriminated against. My boss allowed me to glance at his written review he wrote which rated me 4/5, but I have never seen a written review from him. My last verbal review from him rated me excellant and a valuable asset to the company. Also I am being asked to train the new guy and work with the outside CPA firm on the upcoming corporate review. What advice do you have for me? I am in MI.
