I am 61 years old and have been a practicing Pharmacist in

I am 61 years old and have been a practicing Pharmacist in Wash State for 40 years. Currently I work for Walmart as a Staff Pharmacist-as of April 15, 2017 Walmart is requiring all Pharmacists to perform immunization injections to customers. Unfortunately, I have multiple sclerosis and a form of cerebral palsy thus I don't have the physical ability, due to my disability, to safely administer injections. Walmart has sent me a letter informing me my employment will be terminated effective 4/16/17 because I can't give injections even though I have a medical disability. I have done nothing wrong and can do all other aspects of the job expertly. This seems like discriminatory action and they have said there is no reasonable accommodation for my situation. Injections are asmall part of a pharmacists role thus I don't see how this is causing the company any real financial issues or harm. What should be my next steps? Thank you Lori

I am a federal employee. I am the only minority in my

I am a federal employee. I am the only minority in my department. For the past three years I have not been treated the same or been afforded the same opportunities as my coworkers who are white. I get the lowest evaluations, preventing me from receiving bonuses. In the past year the mental abuse has become unbearable. My supervisor has made rude and very negative comments to me and about me to other staff members. He has also sabotaged projects that I worked on. He has changed my schedule without asking to accommodate someone else even though I have more seniority by 20 years. He is doing this because he is trying to force me to quit. Can I file an EEOC charge?Thank you

My step-son was just demoted from store manager to what

My step-son was just demoted from store manager to what Walmart calls a co-manager. He has worked for Walmart for 18 years and was just promoted to store manager in July 2016.When he was promoted, Walmart moved him to Houston from St. Louis. He took over a store that had been underperforming for years. From all accounts, he turned the store around. By the end of the year, sales and profitability numbers were up. The store "made their number", resulting in substantial bonuses for Mike and other employees of the store.His boss was the one who recruited him to be transferred and promoted. But as soon as Mike got to the new store, his boss turned into a yelling, screaming tyrant--constantly criticizing and never having a positive thing to say. His boss has other stores that do not perform as well, and the "word on the street" is that his own job is in peril.Would you suggest Mike seek the help of an employment attorney or try to formulate some sort of appeal inside Walmart?

Pearl. and I have a question regarding termination. HR was

Hello, Pearl. My name is ***** ***** I have a question regarding termination.JA: Have you documented this or discussed it with HR?Customer: HR was never involved in the last three meetings with the clinic supervisor. Everytime I asked why HR was not here, he would say "that she couldn"t make it". I left an email to HR to ask to meet with her to discuss the write-ups, but she never responded. I submitted my two week notice yesterday. I came to work today and was promptly fired. I met with the clinic supervisor. I immediately asked where Heidi, the HR manager was, and again, "she couldn't make it. I asked if there was another HR person to meet with us and he said, "Heidi is the only one". The meetings I had with this supervisor, HR was never present. I voiced my concern that it seemed illegal that HR was never present and he told me it was. So is this a wrongful termination? Unfortunately, this job is non-unionized. I feel discriminated and targeted. I am also the oldest employee in the clinic who at this time has a foot fracture with a boot. I have missed two days because of my foot fracture. Thank you for any information you can present. IreneJA: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?Customer: There is no union. Full time. And I believe Washington is a "at will" state, anyway.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: There was also present the brand new nurse supervisor at two of the meetings, who has only been with the company less than two months. Will I be charged for the consultation? Thank you

I have a question about Employment law in MA. I was in my first 6 months of a new job, but my manager told me that I didn't pass the first six months and terminated my employment because I don't have a skill they need. But the fact is I have the certificate for many years and did work in that area for this company for two months, they just made up excuses without checking the facts. I have the documents about my work for this company in this area, is there a way I could protect my rights and have my job back? or any kind of payment from them for not giving the right reasons to let me go?
