I was recently terminated from my position due to a

Hi, I was recently terminated from my position due to a contractor advising the company I work for to to fire everybody who worked on a specific job. There were seven members who worked on the job, two of which, including myself, were the only ones experienced with the job type. I was called into the plant manager's office yesterday and told that the contractor advised everyone be fired but I was the scapegoat and the only one terminated. I have never been reprimanded and have an excellent work ethic. Do I have a case for discrimination?

I was just fired from my job because I have refused to work

I was just fired from my job because I have refused to work on Saturday's. When I was hired last August as a part time courier, and was asked if I was willing to work on Saturdays (at that time it was one Saturday every two or three months), but now it is one Saturday every month. Two months ago. Today I was fired.One other thing, a couple of months ago I informed management that there was an employee stealing from the company. This individual is also a teacher at a local college at night was using the company's bond paper and printer to print off her college paper work. This employee was also ordering supplies that they did not use at the location where this employee worked, and was taking the supplies to use when teaching at the college. When I notified them my understanding is that they notified this employee, the employee admitted printing about 20 pages, management said ok, don't do it any more. The employee lied about how much was printed. When asked about the supplies, the employee told management they do use them, which is a total lie and management believed this person.I don't think it matters but I am 65 yrs old, on social security, and a veteran.I am sorry this is so long.Could my situation be considered wrongful termination?

Please explain what it means in the agreement contract

Please explain what it means in the agreement contract 'You agree that at no time during the term of your employment with the company will you engage in any business activity which is competitive with the company nor for work for any company which competes with the company." my agency manager ask me to sign it. Does it mean they do not want me to take my clients away to work for another agency? or I cannot work for another agency which serve different clients for me to get paid for more hours? The current agency only payes me 12 hours per week. Does this contract mean they do not allow me to work for other similar nagture-mental health agency for other new clients to make more money? Please explain. I do believe I have right to work for more than one company to make more money right? They told me they will give me more new clients but they do not guarantee my hours and payment. What should I respond? Can I say I will not sign for it? If they told me I must sign otherwise they will not pay me to hold my paycheck what should I do? Please respond soon. I wait for your answer. thanks.

I worked at H&R Block in Paris Tennessee. This would have

I worked at H&R Block in Paris Tennessee. This would have been my 15 season. I was sick last year and had to take off that year for an illness. I was able to come back this year but not as Office manager like I was. I came back as a tax preparer. I was fine with that. My plans were to apply this year for Office Manager again. The one in the position said she was okay with that. I worked with an employee 2 times and asked her if she would take the client I was working on and give them some of her friends and family money to lower their fees. She said fine and I didn't think their was an issue. So I was finishing up with the clients information and she was in the office for just a minute so I asked her if she could sign in under her ID so I could put his discount in. She left the office and I just thought she had to go because of her kids was out their. The next day I worked a Manager from Clarksville called me into the back office and told me they were going to have to let me go because this girl accused me of harassing her. I have worked their 15 years and everyone in the other offices and those in my office knows that it is totally false. The lady that fired me didn't even want to do it. She just had to do what she was told. I didn't have any contact with this girl outside the office at all. Also they haven't even gave me any documents because nobody can find anything. After all this happened the office leader in my office was fired and the DM left. Then the Regional Manager was fired. It was a lie and to top it off I was friends with all of them. We never had words or any trouble.JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: TennesseeJA: Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: Yes I just don't have money to pay anyone unless I win money. I have tried talking to AR and the leaders of Block. My issue is I can't stop thinking about this . If I were to try to get a job somewhere else our contract says I can't work for anyone else doing taxes for 2 years. But I want my name cleared. I know you dontJA: What advice did they give you?Customer: ecuse me I hit the wrong buttonJA: Is there anything else the Employment Lawyer should be aware of?Customer: Nothing I can think of I just want my name cleared. I live in a small town. All the people that know me thought that was the craziest lie ever because they know I wouldn't do that. I never had words with clients I was always calm in any situation. I planned on retiring with block. I am 55yr old and this has been very hard on me.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Employment Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
