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 live in the state of Georgia. My employer is in Denver CO
I live in the state of Georgia. My employer is in Denver CO and I a W2 employee. I travel to client sites as need and recently my client cancelled my trip. So I have an airline credit. My question is since I have the credit for the airline and this was cancelled by my client when I give my two week notice can my company take my paycheck and give me the voucher/ticket? I'm very concerned since this was no fault of my own and need my paycheck for the hours I worked.
I was terminated from my employment today but given the option to resign. I have until Mon
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.

Employer denied Severance Benefit... (Because - "Terminated with Cause")* I was working in a company for 6 yrs. Got terminated because of some miscommunication.* But Unemployment office approved my Unemployment by saying "Claimant committed the act which caused the separation. However, the Claimant has shown good cause for his actions. As such, his actions do not constitute Willful misconduct and benefits are allowed under section 402(e)"* As per company benefits guide severance package is only for who are "Involuntary Terminated without cause".* As per company Benefits guide on termination one will get 2 weeks pays for each year worked plus additional 6 weeks.* Do I have any options like "Severance negotiation" or "Internal Claims" or "Lawsuit"
