Something I did at work was put on snap chat without my

something I did at work was put on snap chat without my knowledge. I end up getting the choice to resign or be terminated. I was told that I was being inappropiate. I never saw the snap chat or knew of it being sent to management. I was totallly blind sided when asked by management did I know what they were talking about. I answered no. They didn't go into detail, they just stated did I want to resign or be terminated. I chose to resign because I didn't know what to do. After I was escorted out of work like I stole something, I received a text message. The message was an apology from the girl who had taken the snap. She was called in the office and written up for using her phone while on company time. Does this seem fair ? I just received my annual review and a raise a few weeks before this situation. I've asked other employees did they know what the snap was and no one seems to know anything about this ordeal. What do I do? I feel that I was humiliated and forced to resign for something I really didn't do.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: North CarolinaJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Like what?JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't have much information. I really don't know what happened.

I was wondering what recourse I have, if any, as I was

I was wondering what recourse I have, if any, as I was falsely accused of breaching confidentiality at my workplace. In all truth, I was so humiliated, and the accusation was untrue. I have been asked to document everything I did from last Tuesday through last Friday, including who I ate lunch and dinner with and where. In all truth, I don't want to return to work; I have only worked there 10 days and I feel they are an unethical company.JA: Was this discussed with a manager, HR, or an attorney?Customer: A Director. She is my supervisor, conducted the interview, hired me and processed my new hire paperwork.JA: Is the employment "at will," union, full time, or part time?Customer: 'at will', 'full-time'JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I don't really know, I have never been in this position before. The Director told me that she was 'lambasted and broad-sided' on her travel home from an offsite meeting that my name by 'Kim' that I 'cost the company' a real estate deal. That she was with the understanding that I had lunch (then it changed to dinner) with my former employer and I cost them 'the deal'. I work for a real estate property management company. I did speak with my former employer, on the telephone, she shared that 'Kim was going to bring them an offer' on their building - I said, 'that's great, I am happy for you'. My former employer was out of state and I did not have any type of meal with them last week, nor did I have knowledge an offer was even being presented. I do not feel that I violated any type of confidentiality to either company.

I was accused of stealing and reading my new boss's offer

I was accused of stealing and reading my new boss's offer letter and sharing his salary information. New boss told me his salary. He is claiming that I stole this information from "his unlocked drawer in his unlocked office". I was made aware of this situation when our VP flew to town and called a meeting. I was accused of this theft in front of my peers who were not involved. I did not steal the information and I was humiliated. An HR investigation has started and I have let them know that I will cooperate, take a lie detector, etc. I also let them know how humiliated I was in front of my peers. What can I do? I want my good name back. I have a stellar employment record and have been with this company for 4 years. The new boss was hired in January 2017.

I was fired my job today after 16 years, because our compny

I was fired my job today after 16 years, because our compny was bought out but a larger corp. which takes over on May 1st. I was harassed for a month, discriminated and bullied, by the current manager . It is myy belief that my forty hour a job week was changed this past month to accomadate her two daughters who also work there and didn't qualify for benefits were given my hours. to be sent to the new corp. so they can now get legal benefits which they received illegal benefits working between 16 and 23 hours weekly, now they have my hours. when she changed the schedule to accomodate them. I have never signed a single WRITE UP or document for any mistake I had ever been accussed of making.JA: Can you tell me what state this is in? And how long has this been going on?Customer: Illinois, the nepotism has been there since since the manager hired them on in the beginning 2001. The harassement started When DuPage Medical came in and had a group meeting with the employees stating what was need for anyone to benefits. Before thayt info arose their daughter were receiving benefits they should have never been entitled too.JA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: What do you mean by file or reported? a write up or point system , Have I ever filed legal action . NO.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I worked at a small doctors office, since they opened, and have been verbally harassed, and humiliated . and now it is my belief it was because she was insuring her daughters would have a job, and I became a threat to that ever happening.

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
