I was recently terminated due to downsizing (company is not performing well). Was told my position was a luxury (I ran training and development for a sales company). I was the only female on the executive team and the only one let go. This was not a performance based termination on the contrary.

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?

I have been employed by a national food service broker for 5

I have been employed by a national food service broker for 5 years. A co-worker conducted a background search and submitted the results to senior management and the recent review with senior management I was told things weren't working out. I was not terminated, but believe the company is trying to eliminate the position I currently hold. This would effect 49 Key Account Managers with this company. I am also one of the top 5 sales people on the west coast and my successes have been documented several times in their national foodservice publication sent out monthly. My name is***** Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: The current branch VP had also terminated me about 12 years ago for the same issue. His small brokerage firm was bought out by a brokerage firm in Seattle WA and in turn that broker sold out to the national company I now work for. The information from this issue which is over 13 years olds has been spread throughout the current market I work in and from my understanding it is illegal for anyone to conduct this type of search without my knowledge.
