Fortune 50 company informed me position was eliminated and
Fortune 50 company informed me position was eliminated and handed me what looks like a comprehensive release and separation agreement (in Company's favor). I had solid performance reviews my entire career at the firm, unlike some of the others whose positions were eliminated. The severance provides 1 week of pay for each year that I worked, I think. What kind of attorney would be most helpful without charging me lots of money that I don't have? What value would I receive by reviewing the release and agreement with an attorney? Could the payment be negotiated upward, for example? Could some of the release terms be removed? What release provisions should I ask of the company?

I was fired back in March 2016. My district manager came
I was fired back in March 2016. My district manager came into the store (pet store) that I was manager of and said I was not spending enough money on animals needing veterinary care. He asked why my vet bills were so minimal. I told him because we didn't have sick or injured animals. He said well every other store spends 5 times what you spend so I'm putting you suspension to investigate. Three days later he called me and said they had to let me go because of policy violations. I was never told what violations I may have broke and my loyal employees called me to let me know that he took every animal to the vet and not a one was sick or injured. So I'm just wondering if this is a case to look into for wrongful termination. To make things worse some new employees are spreading a rumor that I and my ex-assistant manager have somehow recently poisoned the fish and killed the parrots in the store--and we have not been in the store since March, which now is ruining my reputation. Anyway is this worth pursuing. Thank you for your time.
I am a US natural citizen who has worked as an employee and
I am a US natural citizen who has worked as an employee and a 1099 contractor in the IT industry for 20 plus years. I'm from Oklahoma and just moved to Ohio, was hired by a company in New Jersey for a position at a multinational bank. After I was hired I was told that I would placed with another consulting agency who actually owned the contract with the client. The company I am farmed out to is requesting employment verification, usual stuff, but I don't have all the information from my last job in Oklahoma. I provided contact information to this agency so they could contact former employer and get the information they want, but they refuse to do this, stating it is my responsibility to have this documentation they want. They're asking for job title, proof of start date, such as an offer letter and a letter documenting my last day of employment. I only have the offer letter I signed, not a copy signed by the employer and no letter saying when our relationship ended. It ended on good terms, my contract had a clause allowing immediate termination for any reason. The client down sized and let five of us go.Whose responsibility is to collect this kind of information, a prospective employee or the employer. These kinds of document requirements are new as of 2012 so I don't have much of anything and this employer wanted information going back 10 years.

I feel that I am being retaliated against because I replace
I feel that I am being retaliated against because I replace a temporary employee with a full time employee. I used the companies policy and process. The temporary employee had an opportunity to apply for the full time position but chose not to do so. The position was posted for 3 months before another temporary employee was chosen. The temporary employee has file a complaint with the company to which I have been told she file a complaint but no specific have been given to me. I made a statement to the company that I was unaware of a complaint until notified by my Director. My Director was upset because according to her, the employee states she tried to contact her and was unable to do so. This all transpired around August 20. A human resource person contacted me and I made the statement above. I have not heard of anything since, until after coming back from a two week vacation. I was told by my secretary that a meeting with my Director and all white staff with the exception of my secretary, who is Black, took place while I was away. I have been back and no one has contacted me.I feel that the complaint is bogus and a direct result of a disgruntle employee who has gotten together with her white counterparts to get rid of me. I have gotten great annual evaluations. A year ago I even gave the staff an opportunity to evaluate me anonymously on my performance as a manager and person. They all gave me great scores. An now there is a problem with me. I am being retaliated against because I followed the company's policy. If I am terminated, I feel it will be a wrongful termination. What do you think?
