I am a 60 year old Executive that accepted a role 13 months

I am a 60 year old Executive that accepted a role 13 months ago, leaving a 17year secure job, that required me to move to another state. Situations with my Board of Directors such as the Chair dating staff, Secretary meddling to encouraging specific staff to bypass upper management decisions they disagree with, intentional failure to complete a Strategic Plan process to provide me direction, and general lack of support on key initiatives have made me feel constantly uncomfortable with this dysfunctional dynamic in play. I discussed certain details 4 times with BOD over past year without any action on their part. As a result, I was given a 30 day notice and released after only two weeks. I refused to sign their vague document, and will begin negotiating severance tomorrow.Personnel policy clearly states " In the event of the termination of the Executive Director, either voluntary or involuntary, severance terms must be on a case by case basis. Involuntary termination must be for cause and after all efforts expended to make improvements"Was this a case of Hostile Work environment that I need to pursue?

My employer wants me to sign a modification of my employment

My employer wants me to sign a modification of my employment agreement where he is changing my salary to hourly pay and cutting my salary to originally started pay level (my salary was raised twice since then). Also I had a 6 month salary severance pay in my agreement that he is changing to be what an employee handbook says that he wants me to sign as well. The employee handbook basically waves my severance payment. On top of it he layed off one employee the same day he gave me my modification of my agreement to sign and he is planning to assign some of her duty and responsibilities for me.If I will not sign the modification of the employment agreement what the employer next step will be? Do I need to quit then? And can I get my 6 months severance pay?

I was terminated from my employment today but given the

I was terminated from my employment today but given the option to resign. I have until Monday, 5 p.m. Central, to decide.If I am terminated, it is effective today and this stays on my personnel record there. If I accept the resignation, I finish this pay period by taking Leave, the termination/written reprimand is removed from my personnel record there, and I get health insurance through Sept. 30. So if I resign, can I get unemployment? Is there language to add to the resignation agreement to keep them from contesting employment and to increase my chances of getting unemployment benefits? And is there any language I should look out for whether in the termination or resignation that could disqualify me for benefits?The main idea is protecting myself financially through securing unemployment and being able to get future employment.

A year and a half ago (9/9/13) I accepted a job offer that

A year and a half ago (9/9/13) I accepted a job offer that included a Sign On bonus and a Relocation assistance bonus for a 2 year agreement. This agreement included a clawback clause should the agreement be broken upon voluntary or involuntary termination. The agreement reads as follows:"The Employee understands that if employment is terminated, either through voluntaryor involuntary circumstances, or if the employee status changes prior to fulfilling the terms of this agreement and the minimum months specified from employees date of hire, he/she will be responsible for repaying (ABC) a prorated amount based on the number of months worked at (ABC) and forfeiting any accrued paid annual leave. (ABC) reserves the right to collect amounts owed and the terminating employee authorizes any monies due to be withheld from their final pay check upon notice of such termination per the attached reimbursement schedule. The Reimbursement Schedule (attached) will not be waived unless approved by Human Resources...The following outlines the reimbursement schedule to be paid by you to Sentara should your employment be terminated (by you or ABC) or your status changes prior to the period as set forth in this Agreement. (ABC) will withhold the amount to be reimbursed from the terminating employee's final paycheck, with any remaining balance to be paid by money order to (ABC) within 10 days of the termination date. Reimbursements of sign on bonus monies dispersed are as follows:XXX 24 Month Agreement:# ***** worked for (ABC) % of Dispersed Monies DueA. Less than 12 months 100%B. Less than 18 months 75%C. Less than 24 Months 50%"My question is, if I have worked at (ABC) for 20 months, and I am planning to leave this company, (according to this agreement) would I still owe 50% of the bonus back? Or would I owe 4 months worth of this bonus?
