I want to wear a better hard hat than my company wants me to

I want to wear a better hard hat than my company wants me to wear. It's the same color but rated better and it shields my ears from the sun. Do I have grounds to stand on with wanting to be safer from the elements

I was recently let go from my job, my question is do I have

I was recently let go from my job , my question is do I have any recourse. I was told my department was being shut down and not to worry I will be moved to a new program . I did not receive Ny training and had only phone and email contact with my manager. I raised a lot of question about the work quality from our allied contractors and feel that could have played a part in my termination. When I was let go I was told the reason was because my program shut down, but it was my understanding that I was moved to another program.

In less than 3 Days I was told I was not performing and then

In less than 3 Days I was told I was not performing and then Walked off propertyThis can't be legal??On June 22nd at 5:30 at night I was surprisingly brought into the HR department to be told I was being put on a PIP (performance improvement plan) Stipulation of the plan is that I have an action plan of how I intend to perform better by 12pm on Friday June 24th. This out of the blue PIP was delivered to me by 3 Managers who have never worked with me during my time at the Resort. The VP of Sales & Marketing was in the room but to be honest she never worked with me and has never spent more than 2 days on the property as she is based out west. She has never sat down for any one on one concern or sales advise with me while I have been at the resort. When I asked for my GPS review which was a month++ overdue, I was given an excuse that she had not had time to review it. She would follow up with me next week over the phone. I revert to the concept if I was performing poorly why had my GPS not been reviewed before I was brought in for a PIP. It felt very much like a witch hunt and a retaliation as there was discontent between the Management Operations Team and our Former General Manager, who I worked very closely with, as did every Manager at the resort during January 2015- June 2016.After receiving the PIP; I instantly went to work on developing my Action Plan as was requested. I was asked to have the action plan into the task force DOSM by 12pm on Friday the 24th. On Thursday June 23rd first thing that morning I sent an email to Task force DOSM, Our New General Manager and cc'd the executive committee (as it was an operations meeting day) that I would be taking a PTO day to focus on the Action plan that I needed to put together for the PIP. I did not want to work on it on property as I had clients in town for their wedding and I did not want to have distraction in the office. I worked on the action plan that day. My Plan was emailed to the Task DOSM, VP of Sales & marketing & New GM on Thursday afternoon. When I went into work on Friday I was told by the new HR director that the action plan was not what they wanted but they wanted me to “literally” answer the questions in the PIP regarding my performance and how I would change it. So I spent time Friday revising the Action plan to answer all the questions…I sent an email to our New General Manager Friday morning because the task DOSM was over at another property, the email I sent was asking if we could sit down and review the concerns and to make sure I understood what they are looking for out of me. I got an email back telling me that it was better if I worked only with the task DOSM (the chain of command). At 4pm when the task DOSM returned to our Resort; I was asked to go into HR for the follow up meeting. I explained that I had a rehearsal that I needed to go to with my clients that were in for their wedding but I would be happy to come back up when it was finished. When I returned at 4:45pm I was asked if they could push the follow up meeting to Tuesday. As I would be off Sunday-Monday for my days off and I said that would be fine. About an hour later I was asked by the task DOSM to come into work on Monday even though I had a very large wedding all weekend. I said I would change my plans if needed Monday morning and come into work for 8:30am. Monday at 8:34am I arrived on property. Spent a few minutes at the front desk discussing left over Gift Bags with the Front Desk staff and then began my work day. At 9:10am I was asked into the HR department and given separation papers. No review of Action Plans just stating that I was late for work and I mentioned to the executive committee in an email from last Thursday the 23rd of June that I would be taking a PTO day to work at home on this new action plan I had to put together for My PIP and if anyone needed me they could reach me there. This is a normal everyday email I would send out to everyone that I had meetings with that day as it was an operations meeting day…However that email got me fired because I was not supposed to discuss the PIP or show the PIP to anyone on Property.The details of the PIP was never discussed or shown to anyone on property.Is this legal for them to do? I was there Top sales person with bringing in over 1 million a year.
